The time Desperate Housewives came into advertising moments at Studio23
it didn't catch my attention immediately. I thought it was just one of
the usual drama series that inadvertently attracts the attention of any
melodramatic viewers, however I was totally wrong with my primary
impression, it wasn't dramatic at all, comedy and puzzling twist where
one of its successful magnetism that will always keep you hanging at
the edge of your seats. The series is starred by four "Desperate
Housewives" in its usual episodically scheduled time in Studio23,
namely: Susan Mayer, Bree Van De Kamp, Lynette Scavo, Gabrielle Solis
played by this wonderful stars: Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, Felicity
Huffman and Eva Longoria respectively.
Even for a guy like me could embrace and yearn for this kind of drama
series. It even made weep many times; I thought it was a lowly
dramatized play that couldn't even catch the interest of ordinary
viewers, but it was the best realistic series that anyone could
actually love. Witty moments were one of its attracting element,
Desperate Housewives never lacks on it, every episode were complete,
mystery, intrigues, drama, jokes, crime and hilarity always coalesce
every episode that appear. I would even scamper instantaneously to
finish washing dishes and bathe myself around 9:30 at night to capture
the beginning of each episode.
For sure if anyone had followed the mystifying story of Mary Alice
Young, going to every inhabitant of Mysterial Lanesuburban
neighborhood, you would really appreciate the beauty of the plot of
"Desperate Housewives", keep watching
