Soap Opera Camp at its very best! What a hoot!! "Well Adrian I guess you will just have to blow yourself"
Back in the 1970's when my mother and my sisters would sit down and take over the single TV we owned in the house to watch their afternoon and/or evening soap operas I was miserable. I just could not stand the cheap melodramatic music scores and/or the hokey and predictable "whodunit?" episodes week after week.
My how 40 years have made a difference and now Devious Maids comes along and this series takes soap operas to a new and hilarious camp level. In this particular episode (Season 4, Episode 2 Another One Bites the Dust) the four main female (Maids) characters (Roselyn Sanchez, Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez and Judy Reyes) are all dealing with their own issues whether the issue is dealing with one of their lovers being accused of murdering his ex-wife, or another of the maids having her daughter (who doesn't know the maid is her mother) tries to seduce their boss, to another maid who is falling in love with the next door neighbour (who lives with his mother still) under the pretense that she actually owns the house she his house sitting for, and lastly but not forgotten the remaining maid who has written a best selling book and making it into her dream movie of her life story until the lead actress is murdered by one of the other maids lovers.
In Season 4, episode 2 (Another One Wipes The Dust) there is one scene that is just hilarious when the rich and famous couple Evelyn Powell (Rebecca Wisocky) and Adrian Powell (Tom Irwin) who employ some of these devious maids to either hide their darkest secrets, or to spy on their spouse and catch them in a compromising position come to a head when each knows of the others dark secrets and Evelyn responds to her husband Adrian's request to stay together by stating "well Adrian I guess you will just have to blow yourself". What? Did Evelyn Powell just say what I think she said? Of course she did, because the year is 2016 and the TV censors have lightened up in a big way.
I haven't even mentioned soap opera Queen Susan Lucci who plays a very rich bitch and divorced wife three times over Genevieve Delacourt who also has the Devious maids working for her. At 69 years of age she looks fantastic and she is absolutely perfectly type cast as a wealthy single lady who sleeps with her full makeup on and her diamond earrings.
If you are looking for a ridiculously campy soap opera that is really light and funny entertainment than don't miss this one episode it is one of the best comedy/camp soap operas I have ever seen. I give it an 8 out of 10 rating. What an absolute joy to watch and what a hoot!
