Show has jumped the shark!
25 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought I was watching bloopers from Rosemary's Baby on Sunday night when I saw Mother Hodge and Alma set Orson up. It was ridiculous. If you watch soaps, they could have sent Bree to visit her ailing father in Rhode Island rather than causing more trouble. Anyway, Lynette quits her office job to work for her husband's restaurant. I will miss Currie Graham who played her boss Ed. Of course, Jane dies letting Ian free to be with Susan. Mike is free but Paul is in jail for a murder that he didn't commit but committed another. I don't know why they brought back Paul Young's character to have him fall in love with Gaby. It's ridiculous and silly to watch the show now. I never thought of it as a dark comedy. I thought it was a melodrama and still think it is. An hour is too long for a comedy. I hope Marc Cherry reads these reviews, maybe he could do something. I wish Marcia the best with her new arrivals. After all, Marcia didn't have to be in the scene. Orson could have just announced Bree went to visit her sick father and everybody would think otherwise or have Alma on the loose.
