Desperate Housewives Returns Tonight!




The ladies of Desperate Housewives return tonight and I have to say I'm looking forward to it. The five year jump that took place in last season's season finale has me very intrigued, though I must mention that I'm not entirely sure what I think of turning Gaby into a frazzled woman. Spoiled rich girl characters don't always make the transition from being a diva to being average that well.

What I've always wondered is what people think of the four main characters Bree, Lynette, Susan and Gabrielle. Personally, I'm a huge fan of Teri Hatcher thanks to Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman but it is Marcia Cross' Bree Van De Kamp that is my favorite character. No one does ice like Bree does and there is just something you have to admire about a woman who can shoot the lights out of a car and then turn around and bring a sworn enemy a basket of muffins. Love it.

I've always enjoyed Eva Longoria's Gabrielle and she often makes me laugh but as much as I respect Felicity Huffman as an actress, Lynette drives me absoutely nuts.

So here is my question. Which of the four main characters do you hate most?

Gabrielle Solis
14% (45 votes)
Bree Van De Kamp
23% (74 votes)
Lynette Scavo
19% (63 votes)
Susan Mayer
44% (145 votes)

Oh yeah, 20 minutes in and the Scavo family is more annoying than ever. Who knew it was possible?

did I miss something? There was no explanation of how Gaby and family are affording to live...didn't they lose all their money at the end of last season? Here she is driving around fancy cars, their house has tons of new stuff and she's shoping up the wazoo....where is the money coming from?

I wouldn't say hate, but Susan is just annoying to me most of the time. I like the other three ladies plus Katherine and Edie. And my favorite housewife is without any doubt Bree. She is just a darling! Laughing out loud

Um, I think it's getting to the point where I only like Lee and Bob! The camera phone moment is my favourite part of the show so far!

I don't dislike any of the women on DH. They are all good to me. I have to say what Gabi did to her kid was the worst thing I've ever seen a parent do to a child on TV, short of out right abuse, and I fell off my seat laughing my ass off. That's a character that is truly defined.

Lynette is WONDERFUL! Say one more word against her Luke Kerr and I will cast a spell ensuring that your first born son is born with a unicorn in the middle of his forehead!

Lynette is about as wonderful as a houseful of screaming kids that won't be quite, oh wait, that's what she has. LOL

I love them all. I see a little of myself in them.
I can be as shady as Bree.
Cutesy & goofy as Susan.
Soiled as Gaby.
Tough as Lynnette.
Slutty & sexy as Edie.

I kinda dislike Kathryn Mayfair. I love Dana Delaney, but her character is kind of like a Bree clone.

If I had a man, I would BE a desperate housewife! Laughing out loud

I've decided to skip the season, and watch Sunday Night Football instead. When I watched the 5 year skip last season, I realized I wasn't interested- most especially in what they did to Mike and Susan. Their wedding, for the last 5 minutes of the previous season finale was a highlight for me. I invested in that pairing, and I'm disappointed in whatever they're doing. In addition, Marc Cherry was quoted that Teri Hatcher pitched the storyline to him, so I can only conclude that Teri Hatcher cost James Dention his job, possibly. It seems I enjoyed the husbands more than the wives. Additionally, Lynette and Tom's kids cracked me up, and to have them be teens now, too much change for me.

First, THEBEST, did you mean spoiled as Gaby instead of soiled as Gaby because if you didn't, ewwwwah. LOL!

Second, Susan is by far my least favorite. She was just way too goofy and annoying but since I loved Mike so I was able to tolerate her much more until they made Mike a crack addict.

Lynette, while I can understand why she acts the way she does (those damn kids), she can be unbearable sometimes. And I don't like how they make Tom seem like an idiot. I want to see more husbands on television who are men not little boys whose wives have to tell them what to do. It was funny on Everybody loves Raymond but now it's condescending.

But Bree is my favorite thanks to my Martha Stewart obsession.

Love Gaby, Lynette and Bree!

Dislike SUSAN alot. She drives me crazy. I love Mike (James Denton) so I watched their scenes but now that the couple are seperated I no longer need to suffer through her whining and annoying behaviour. I hope they bring her daughter back this season. She also helped to make the Susan scenes a little more tolerable.
