I have had the most fun watching this show. When the promos first aired, I was skeptical. I assumed the show would use the "Desperate Housewives" formula, but I didn't have much hope in the writing or story arc. I really can't explain why I thought this, but I couldn't have been more wrong. From the first episode, I have been absolutely hooked. Yes, because the show is intriguing; but also because I really like these ladies. ALL of them, even the villainous employers like Evelyn Powell. (LOVED HER IMMEDIATELY IN EPISODE ONE). The writing is clever and witty, and the characters are lovable. (Rosie is especially charming).
I do not typically watch shows like this. I'm more of a Dexter/True Blood/Big Bang Theory/Downton Abbey kind of girl, but it's fun to have this guilty pleasure in your back pocket when you want to escape into the mindless (and I mean that in a good way) world of television.
PS: Susan Lucci is BRILLIANT as Genevieve.
