TV: Desperate Housewives

We have been watching Desperate Housewives for a couple of years now, one of our guilty secrets... It was one of the first television shows put online by ABC, the first network to have a decent online full-episode video player. One summer, we discovered said player and thus we were transfixed by what our father refers to as "tiny teev." The point is, we got sucked into the soap opera-esque plotlines of DH and found ourselves wondering what incredible thing could possibly happen next, and when would we be available to watch? We were hooked.

Everything you've heard about this show is true. There are affairs, drug-addicts, terminal illnesses, pregnancies, murders, and all the intrigue that you think could possibly be packed into a street with somewhere between 10 and 1000 houses. This show is ridiculous, and fairly hard to pick up because of all the relevant past history, but once you get into the swing of things it's hard to leave behind.

Quick vote: Is this show wholesome? Not really. Is it fun to watch? Yeah. Is it a must see? No. Will you two be watching it next fall? As long as they keep putting it up on the internet so we can catch up on it online during the days (when we have loads of time to spare)!!!
