Susan Has Some Issues With Her Doctor
9 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the third episode of the fourth season of the Desperate Housewives entitled The Game,Bree informs her fellow housewives something that she overheard from the Mayfair residence.Erstwhile,we get to see Susan throwing charade parties to her fellow friends to make sure that their new neighbor Katherine will be present in it.Too bad that in it,we get to see Carlos and Katherine get upset as we see Gabrielle and Adam,who happens to be Susan's gynecologist, flirt with one another.

As for Lynette,she gets brownies that contains marijuana from Stella as a way of coping up with her chemotherapy sessions.Going back to Susan,she feels uncomfortable with Adam considering that his credentials are somewhat questionable.Also,she feels that it is fabricated from a foreign country that produces fake diplomas.Very funny!!!!!Therefore,she asked Bree for a recommendation.

This was another enjoyable episode.We get to see Bree and Susan bond with one another especially when the latter had some issues with her doctor.Added to that,we get to see another interesting character in Katherine,who is portrayed by Dana Delany effectively.Drama and humor are definitely present in another great episode of the season.
