Desperate Housewives: Season 3 - Page 8

post #141 of 662
oh MY god!

Ok, I'm the one who's always going to post last here because I don't have cable, so I download my episodes when someone gets around to putting them up (so, it's Thursday and I just watched last Sunday's episode!). But...OH MY GOD!

I havn't read what anyone's posted yet because I can't because I'm too excited! This season is like, the best yet! (I've even got my S/O hooked now, LoL...I leave the episode for him to watch when he gets home from work in the am).

I was SUPER happy to see John back on the show. How funny is it now that the tables are turned (and how annoying is SHE!? -fiancee- ..frig, I'll take watching Nora over her! UGH). I'm keeping my fingers crossed that John and Gabrielle end up together (that would be one HOT baby! LoL)

Tom & Lynette are finally straightening things out. I love those two because they're both funny and sneaky and conniving in a faithful kind of way. I think they're so cute together (but certainly not why I tune in, right?). I love the transition about to take place here where Lynette and Nora are becoming like a team...let's see where THAT goes...!

Strangely too, as happy as I was when Bree dropped smartmouth Andrew off in the middle of nowhere; I was happy in a different way to see him back home...like he belongs there. I think Andrew has learned and will be the good kid while the girl (name blank) will continue on her prissy high pedestal until she runs off with a biker or something, then good riddance (I never liked her, she's too whorish for a highschool kid ...I'm sure she's a nice girl in real life : LoL.)

Edie's nephew...I wish they'd have casted better for this part. I don't like him and his face bugs me (much like Cameron Diaz...see my signature to visit my space for details).

And WOULDN'T YA KNOW IT too huh? Of COURSE Edie is there when Mike wakes up, and we all know what SHE'S after....same thing Susan just got

I really hope that Julie doesn't do anything stupid. I like Julie just the way she is, and look forward to her getting married sometime in the near seasons! I like the way they portray her as a good kid despite not having a full-time dad. They're really blowing the social stigma of being raised by a single parent means that you'll turn out badly. I think one parent can do just as good a job as two (if that parent puts their mind to it, and the tools in place...people tend to overlook that two-parent families can have kids that turn out very badly too!).

I know this is so last season, but I'm glad they've put a gay character (Andrew) on the show...but I wish they'd travel more uncharted territory. Like, perhaps having a two-mommy or two-daddy family. I mean, it's not like it's too controversial for the show or something!

Oh; and one more thing: I look forward to the day when ZACH comes back to destroy things with his new power ...MUHUHUHAHAHAHHAHAHA (maybe, build a casino next door to Gaby's? Kidding!)

She has a good head on her shoulders, but that is because she has always had to parent her stupid mother susan. :

Are you certain?? Because I missed that too, and I don't usually miss stuff like that. Although, Lynette is such a sensible person, I'd imagine that to be the first thing out of her mouth; so it could be!

But even if it turns out not to be (DNA test was wrong or switched or whatever), I think Tom & Lynette would still include her as part of their family; because she is now. Afterall, it wouldn't be her fault. But then, I can't envision Nora as a permanent character. Maybe she takes the child and moves away next season or something....or dies.

The reason why Tom took so long to tell Lynette was that he was waiting for the result of the DNA test. If the DNA test came out to have been incorrect, Nora would be ditched fast.

Susan & Mike were a little heartbreaking last night.

Lynette was hilarious.

Do you think Gabby still loves Carlos?

I was so happy to see Bree and Andrew getting along. I hope that continues for a while.

Remember when Lynette found Tom at Nora's? He was there at that time getting the DNA test done... he was waiting to tell Lynette about the situation one way or the other until after he got the test results.

At least, that is how I remember it!

Last night was a good episode. Here's hoping that Andrew's life while homeless doesn't come back to haunt him too much. (Warning... below paragraphs contain spoilers about last night's episode!)



What do you think will happen with Orson and Mike??? Orson is soooo sinister sometimes and other times so... Leave it to Beaver normal, which is exactly up Bree's ally! I thought they were hilarious about "drama camp."

Poor Gabby. I couldn't believe Carlos picked her up and left her at the side of the road like that. There are some advantages to being too big to be easily picked up like that! He NEVER woulda been able to do that to me! She is just so tiny! She is so, so hurt by the whole thing and you can totally see it. And Carlos seems to forget that the whole darned reason they are splitting up is that he SLEPT with their SURROGATE mom, so not only did he commit adultery and LIE to her... he also chose the fertile chick over her. OUCH.

Susan... yeah I have it in for Susan although I'm not the one someone said that too! As always, acting like nothing in her life is her own responsibility. Yeps, it's totally Ian's fault that she wasn't around when Mike woke up. When she said that he would've moved faster if his wife had woken up, I wanted to smack her upside the head. WTF!!!!!!! So MEAN. Poetic justice in a sense, for Mike to be like "go away." But then Susan just *annoys* me so maybe I'm being mean to her for real.

It was a good episode though!

I didn't even see this! I totally disagree. If the DNA had not proven that Tom was that little girl's dad, there is no way they'd include Nora in their lives. Nora is a nut and a *danger*, she makes dangerous decisions and could bring harm to their family in so many ways. Being "nice" just doesn't measure up to the potential threat, in my mind!

I was much happier with last nights episode vs all previous shows this season. Lynette was a hoot last night - love her lines all the time. P-dog was too cute. And I absolutely love the comrodery and chemistry between her & Tom.

I dont understand the Carlos and Gabby thing - maybe it is cause we were suppose to assume they would just get back together - like Carlos said. But I am not sure I really beleive Gabby can or will go on without him. Just playing hard to get is my guess (hope)!

Loved the scene with Bree and Andrew - they were both so human last night, which is very abnormal for both of them lately. Orson is a weird duck - I think he is evil and did do soemthing to his first wife - but he is acting so genuine and respectful to Vandecampe's family - it almost makes me forget the evil - until he visits Mike with that smirk.

really just dont care for Susan at all - so sick of the whiney poor me bit.

Yes I"m certain. Right after Tom told Lynette and she calmed down she said they'd do a DNA test and Tom said he already did one which was why he was waiting to tell her, he was waiting for the results.

Absolutly

Right now Orson thinks Mike has lost a significant part of his life, but he has only lost the last 2 years so unless he doesn't remember from before he will remember Orson from jail.

ah, the qualities of a psychopath.lol

I took it as they'd include the girl, but unfortunatly that means Nora too.

I wonder though, if this is what Tom was talking about when he told his dad he did something Lynette would never forgive him for. It seems he had that secret long before he started going off to see Kayla or would have known about her. I know it tv land dna tests take days but irl it takes much longer but I don't know if this is really Tom's big secret.

Bree's daughter is all of a sudden in the picture. No storyline about how she came home etc...? Anyway, I had a feeling about her and the teacher when they were at the history fair.

I agree about Orson. I almost liked him last night. Weird.

I loved Bree and Andrew last night. It was so sweet.

Ahhhh... Susan. BooHoo. She was so awful to the other guy when she heard Mike woke up. Like all the googoo eyes and everything meant nothing. What a jerk. But we already knew that.

I loved Edie. I don't know why. Maybe because she is getting back at Susan. I think Mike and Edie together would be HOT!

Now Gabby and Carlos....
I think the whole situation is sad. You have to remember SHE cheated on HIM first. I wish they would get back together. They both have ended up so hurt.





oh yeah...
Lynette and Tom were awesome last night. They were so real and human. I loved the "slick high five" they gave each other when their son sprained his ankle. I loved "What's on the next page of your Parenting Handbook"?
post #151 of 662
I liked that Ian stood up for himself when Susan was blaming him, I wanted to strangle him and be like, "He's hot with an ACCENT you idiot!" Not that I would totally forget my almost fiancee who'd been in a coma for 6 months, but at least leave things on speaking terms in case things with Mike don't pan out!

She went somewhere?
post #154 of 662
Well I just watched last nights episode. I liked it.

I was glad I taped it. I was able to fast forward through some of the Susan sillyness.

I like the way the Bree bit is going. I also fnd myself thinking that I like Orson. I think he's perfect for Bree because he's willing to accept all these weird and awful circumstances she and here family are/were in. I'll be interested to see where his story goes but I hope it isn't too evil.

I thought the Lynette story line was somewhat funny but I can't ever let go of the way they parent. It's icky....

I was beginning to think that maybe Gabby doesn't love Carlos after what I watched. I have no idea where that will go. It just seems like it's gone too far to come back to a happy marriage.

Anyone have thoughts on the comments made that Mischa Barton wanting to come on the show. Some say that the older ladies wouldn't let that happen since she's such a young thang... Anyone to replace Susan if you ask me..... not that that's what she would do but it is an idea...
post #155 of 662
Carlos and Gabby - I don't know. Such a double standard. She had an affair with their teenage gardner! I thought it was hillarious when he moved back in. I thought they might reconcile but not after last night.

Susan and Mike - I don't actually hate Susan. I think she's a ditz, but she and Mike really loved each other. She is just walking bad luck. Edie is so maniplulative.

Bree - she tried so hard to have the perfect family and it's such a mess. I hope Andrew straightens up. I am looking forward to the Orson stuff playing out, finding out about his wife, and why he wanted to hide his past and try to kill Mike.

Lynette and Tom - I am glad we didn't have to see Nora again. She's so annoying. I hope that whole thing is over soon.

What's up with that other snotty lady that Bree told her that her dh was having an affair, then she was shown right at the end. Has she been on the show before and was she brought in to replace the Applewhites?

I actually like Susan. She's funny and she makes the same kind of momentously dorky mistakes I have made. I felt really bad for her when Mike told her to get lost. Ouch.

Do you think Mike did something to Orson? Their relationship seems really weird.

He was shot at the end of the season. They briefly ran away together but she returned at the end.

Yep, I agree w/most of the above. But, I have to add that I loved the line the Dr's wife used on Bree when she told her that her (Bree's) daughter was sleeping w/the teacher..."So sorry I didn't have any biscuits to offer w/that!" But, yes, Bree was trying to do the right thing. I do wonder if that storyline will develop at all?

And, I like Edie, too. I find her more entertaining than whiny Susan.


And...when Lynette watched the other kid's Mom pull that $50 out of his pocket, couldn't you just feel her cringe? :
