Desperate Housewives

Remember when Desperate Housewives used to be huge? I mean, a couple of years ago, everyone was talking about it. Now, some people are still watching it but not as many as in its heyday. I think everyone agreed that its second season was crap, which turned everyone off.

Now in its fourth season, the storylines are just as soapy and "juicy". Many people have described it as a prime-time soap. I still watch it because, yes, it is slightly addictive even though it isn't that good for you- yes, if you want to, compare it to chocolate.

The main characters have the same personality traits as they did in the beginning, not much has changed... Don't worry, I won't go over them. This can get tiring because you have to wonder how the writers can keep reinvigorating the show and the storylines without adding new characters.

And after a while, the narrator's voice- Mary-Alice or whatever her name is- can begin to grate on you.

The recent season 4 ratings for Desperate Housewives haven't been too bad, (latest)-1.1m, 1.2m, 1.3m, 1.3m, etc. so while it hasn't done too badly for seven, it will never get back to its former glory- up around the 1.8m mark. But I'm sure it will be sticking around for a lot longer- but not for too long- there's only so much botox in the world (I'm thinking of three stars in particular).
