Man, that's beautiful! {wink}

I'm definitely becoming addicted to this show. I look forward to Sunday nights a bit too much.

Bree in the strip club KILLED me. I'm glad they are humanizing her, be it ever so slowly.

elizabeth at October 25, 2004 10:39 AM

Elizabeth...totally agree. I'm glad to see that she's not an entire automaton and that she obviously cares about her kids' feelings. And she's funny as hell.

I'm so glad they didn't drag that blackmail thing out...I was a bit afraid of that. But how is she going to fix sending Mike on a date with Hungrywhore from Hell in her place? How do you recover from that?

I love this show.

I want to really, really like this show, but I just don't. It's okay, but it's now been lowered to one of those shows that I have on in the background while doing something else. If it wasn't for Marcia Cross' character and the suicide mystery, I wouldn't watch at all.

Teri Hatcher's whole "wacky" storyline feels like it should be on "Joey" or something (not to mention the fact that she's looking kinda haggard). How long are they going to drag out the soap opera clicheed affair storyline? And I *love* Felicity Huffman, but her storyline is just a little too mainstream.

Remember the scene where the dad finds the kid in the dark with the revolver spinning the chamber? Why can't the whole show be quirky and dark like that!? THAT'S the show I want to watch.

I will faithfully watch this show until it dies, because last night it completed the Melrose Place trifecta by bringing in John Haymes Newton as Gay Cable Guy.

freakgirl at October 25, 2004 12:13 PM

I'm with Joe. I so want to love this show but I find myself getting angry at the predictability of the storylines, and the slapstick feel that I get from the acting. I keep watching because I want to see where they're going with the Mary Alice storyline. But the rest of it I can't get into.

Didn't Lynette have triplets in the previous episodes? There were only two last night and we never even saw the baby.

Amy at October 25, 2004 02:08 PM

That bothered me too...about lynette not having the baby with her. I mean non school age kids are ALWAYS with you..they showed lynnette all over the place without them and made no mention of a nanny or babysitter....

Why is THAT the thing that sways it for me on the believability scale? I don't know. It just does.

Todd at October 25, 2004 02:23 PM

Lynette has an older son...the middle two are twins...and a baby...plenty of women around the neighborhood to take care of the little one while she peels the twins off the school hall walls.

Stacy at October 25, 2004 02:24 PM

I heart this show. I like the dark parts the best, but the wacky hijinks work for me as well.

Janet at October 25, 2004 02:46 PM

This show is losing me. Loved Susan at first, but I'm definitely over her: she's become way too wacky-I-Love-Lucyish for me, and it's making her come off like an idiot. Also, the tone of the show is all over the place -- some of it wants to be grounded in reality, while some of it is so over the top that it's hard to believe in these characters as real human beings.

I'm still watching, but I'm reading a book at the same time.

OolooKitty at October 25, 2004 04:48 PM

Hey, freakgirl, John Haymes Newton is the son of my parents' next-door neighbor. Unbelieveably handsome, and a nice guy, too.

Cristiane at October 25, 2004 06:15 PM

Cool, Cristiane! On Melrose Place, he was ab-ilicious.

freakgirl at October 25, 2004 06:44 PM

The slapstick is hit and miss with me.

Bree kicking down her son's locked door? Awesome.

Susan lying naked in bushes? Not so much.

tim at October 25, 2004 08:45 PM

I gots no love for the show, but I heart freakgirl's mad haiku skills.

Michael at October 26, 2004 11:20 AM

I'm loving this show.
I just don't understand why they can't make Susan's hair look less ratty. it makes her look old. and bad.

Ali at October 26, 2004 01:24 PM

We just watched our tivo of it... this is the second site I've hit since (I simply had to search for pictures of Jesse Metcalfe... born in 1978. 1978!!!) Anyhow, I recently experienced Paper Dolls from beginning to its unceremonious and abrupt end, and even I've got to say, Nicolette Sheridan was a dish in her 20's and she's a dish in her 40's. She's got style, she's got flair, but she not Fran Dresher. Not one bit.

BTW, nice to see the art of the Haiku making a comeback.

S.John at October 27, 2004 10:05 PM

The haikus were a definite nod to the good old days of 90210.

As for Nicolette, though, she seems to have some ick plastic surgery going on.

freakgirl at October 27, 2004 10:34 PM

That's what I thought at first, but her face has always had that "stretched too tight over giant jawbones" euro-look to it. I'm not saying she hasn't had any work done, but I think it's to a lesser extent than most might assume. Also I think they're making her up to look trashy (harsh drag queeny eye and face make-up) and that has a little to do with it too. I'm she certainly not Cybil-on-a-talk-show ot Tracy-Gold-Arrested bad, but still.

S.John at October 28, 2004 09:32 AM

great read - awesome blog
