Several times through out the seasons, when the camera is filming from the outside of a house into the front door, it can be noticed that the interior that is visible from the shot is different from the interior when filming on the inside of the house. See more »
I first stumbled across this on an ad and I decided to watch it on it's first air date. What I thought could have been a lame show like Sex and the City or Lost I was wrong, the show seems to be a black comedy drama and turns at some times to be brimming with some campiness and occasionally gets a bit over the top. I admire this because it is a nice show which doesn't patronize the viewer at times like most American television shows and it does get a little silly but that's what's the fun of it.
Susan Meyer, Bree Van De Kamp, Lynette Scavo and Gabrielle Solis are all housewives with passions and desires. They are all different and unique from each other and they struggle with everyday life on Wysteria Lane. All four of their stories/actions are done great in a hour and there are some great character detail and emphasis. Hatcher is good but I'm not sure wherever or not she should be the lead, Huffman is very good and makes good expression and emotion when living in an annoying environment with her kids, job and life. Longoria is beautiful and lovely with nice frustration, lust and desires in her marriage. Cross is excellent and shows how a woman who wants to be the perfect and most distinguishable from the rest with repression of anger, confusion and sadness.
The male leads are not as strong as the female mainly because obviously its to do with ladies and they are left in the cutting room but Chavira, Savant and Metcalfe are pretty good too. Desperate Housewives is a great show and I think it's probably one of the best American shows out now.
