Eh, I totally forgot about DH, due to the two-hour premiere of "24", and to be honest, I'm really not that broken up about it. I think I'm over that show, and am at the point where I'm content just reading spoilers to find out what's going on. Just too many wasted opporunities and too much stupid slapstick humor. Sorry, "Desperate Housewives", you had me and then you lost me.

Last night's ep was really funny. The "I love you" thing with Mike was cute. Bree and her son - ugh.

sorta unrelated: I watched my new DVD of Spiderman 2 after 'DH' and was surprised to see Mrs. Huber playing Jonah Jamison's wife. She is such a versatile character actress, I hadn't placed her before.

"Please don't confuse my anal-retentiveness with affection."

I have, like, no use for anyone other than Bree. I want a show that's all Bree, all the time.

best line? "PLease, you're dating my wife. Call me Rex."

And I'm so hot for the nanny, so there's that.

Man, who's NOT hot for Marla Sokoloff? She's smokin'.

Bree, as usual, kicked 87 different kinds of ass. Even if I don't entirely understand her "we hate Rex, but we respect him" thing. I loved it when she said she was going to "french the hell out of" her (hello, totally a gayist) date. All her clothes were awesome. Word, Nora: can we just make this the Bree Show already? I don't care at all about any of the other characters any more.

Has anyone else noticed that just about all of the desperate housewives (Bree, Edie, Lynette, WhateverTeriHatcher'sNameIs) have strangely sunken eyes? Is that just due to too much pilates? It's starting to freak me out.

It's lack of food.

freakgirl at January 10, 2005 11:28 AM

Oh, and, re: the Nanny; I totally like that Marla Sokoloff seems to have gotten curvier and softer since her days on The Practice. She's really lovely.

I'm not buying that Gabriela was once a supermodel. Isn't she like 5' 1"?

Rain at January 10, 2005 12:24 PM

oh my goodness, i couldn't love Bree more. and she is the BEST dresser. i swear, my husband wants to kill me because i make comments about how much i lover her clothes.

she's awesome.
my most favorite lines of the episode:
1) "Do me a favor, Rex -- please don't mistake my anal retentiveness for actual affection."
2) "i intend to french the hell out of him."

of course, both were Bree's. did i mention how much i love her?

We missed this ep. Good to know it wasn't the best one.

I actually really enjoyed this episode. I agree - Eva Longoria, while very hot, can't play a supermodel. I don't believe it.

Like many other people, I greatly enjoy the Bree character. Sometimes she veers into caricature though. What I really liked about this episode though was her little lecture to her son at the end. Her character opened up a little, showed some vulnerability, and even some poignancy. There have been other moments in the past when Bree's walls have come down, but I thought this was one of the more effective scenes.
