Desperate Review

Posted by on Tue, May 31, 2005 at 1:13 PM

Around March or so I finally got sucked into the Desperate Housewives vortex. I'm too busy to watch much television, but I find this one worthwhile (and I'm obviously not alone) as network television goes.

Then I read this essay and I wonder if this guy and I are watching the same show. I don't think the show puts on the airs this fellow seems to think it does. And, I don't think Marc Cherry has any pretensions about it beyond its being a well-written and well-plotted serial. In fact, the tone of the essay seems to be that of a person who has determined that the show is no longer the Next Big Thing to watch and so he's announcing his separation from it to establish his ahead-of-the-curve bona fides. Anyway, read it for yourself and decide for yourself whether the author is--as I think--trying way too hard.
