Devious maids is a wonderful black comedy. 3 episodes in the only critiques seem to be that some characters are 2 dimensional and lend themselves to social stereotypes. I would argue that this is a necessary stage in creating social satire. As Marc Cherry is the executive producer, and Eva Longoria a producer (with a degree in Chicane Studies now) I've no doubt the characters will be fleshed out, as Desperate Housewives was. Right now, however, I am just enjoying the dozen of laugh out loud moments each episode provides. I love the plot device of the maids, the female employers, and their spouses--it seems like it will lend itself to more interesting group dynamics then tradition allows. I am looking forward to watching the series unfold!
