Desperate Housewives is probably the longest series I have watched entirely from first episode to last.
Prior to this, I wasn’t really into TV shows. But sometime in 2004, my editor Millet Mananquil sent me a DVD and I got hooked.
Eight years and eight seasons later, it’s over. Last night I watched the final two-hour episode which seemed hurriedly done and bitin, but I’m glad it’s over because I was getting tired of the show, with all the stress, never-ending problems and evil people stopping by Wisteria Lane.
Truth to tell they could have ended two seasons earlier. Still I couldn’t help but feel a little sad saying goodbye to the characters played by (L-R) Vanessa Williams, Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria, Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross.
I can’t say I have a favorite housewife, probably the one I can relate to is Lynette (Felicity Huffman), the supermom and Gabi (Eva Longoria) who speaks her mind.
My least favorite is Bree (Marcia Cross) because she has too much botox and looks like a plastic woman (read: hard to look at).
Teri Hatcher’s character (Susan) is a bit on the wholesome (read: boring) and I’m indifferent to Vanessa Williams who joined the show only recently.
That said, I’m glad the series ended happily with everyone moving out of Wisteria Lane and being successful in their career changes. I am 10% sad and 90% happy it’s over.
Here are the final, final six minutes of the show known as Desperate Housewives.
