Desperate Housewives - Page 2

post #21 of 130
UGH, did anyone notice the narration of the teaser... "Next week, they're gonna cut 'em off" Flash the words "Cut 'Em Off" followed by the clip of Bree asking the Rabbi about a bris *sigh*

Oh, yuck!!!!!!!! I hope they get a ton of negative feedback...
post #23 of 130
was anyone else annoyed that her water broke and her baby was born like 5 minutes later? lol. Especially for a first time mother. My water broke and my baby was born 38 HOURS later. It was funny how Danielle was like "it's coming!" before she even had one contraction.

and i also hope hope hope they DON'T circ!

My water broke and my son was born two pushes later. I didn't see the show, but the length of time a woman labors varies immensely. Why are we mad that her delivery was precipitous?

sorry...off topic...disregard.

WOW! So you had no labor contractions before your water broke and your baby was born minutes later??? I'm jealous! I didn't know that was possible!

But I see that was your second birth... not really sure how often that happens with a woman's first birth.

I can't speak for everyone, but the reason why it annoyed me was the greater context of tv births. They never show a more average birth. It is either super fast, which is rare or has other rare things for the added drama.

I'm also less annoyed at the speed of the labour than having her labour on her back on a kitchen table.

But was that your first born? Danielle was having her first so I just thought it was silly that one minute her water broke, the next she said "it's coming" without really even having contractions (at least it didnt' seem that way, she wasn't stopping to breathe or anythign like that, then the next minute she's up on the counter pushing out her baby. I just thought it was very "t.v. dramatic" lol:

i think the hubby's doing a nice job....making his wife's reasons seem very superficial.

i don't even watch this show and I'M interested!

oh yeah - and they are bottlefeeding too....not even promoting the breast.

Interesting. I don't watch this show but I have to wonder if it's being set up so she'll change her mind.
Or on the other hand will it become a big joke and the husband say never mind go for it.

We'll see - at least the issue is being addressed! And Sancta, isn't the baby Danielle's? So it has to be ffed? But it also might have been nice if Danielle pumped. That happened a long time ago on a soap opera (AMC) - the bio mom pumped for the babe (who literally couldn't be fed formula because of allergy). Sorry, OT! I'm not going to watch D.H. but am interested in how it will turn out. Unfortunately in the media, circ is still fodder for comedy (yeah, it's real funny...)

wow, that preview was great! Thank you! I think it's AWESOME that he said it so clearly - not at the price of pain and reduced sexual pleasure!

I have no idea. (I don't watch it....) I don't even know who Danielle is!

But if that's the case...then it makes sense that they are bottlefeeding. Thanks for the correction!

In Bree's defense, the child isn't actually hers and it is very difficult to nurse an adopted baby. She could use a SNS I guess.....
post #34 of 130
wow I'm impressed by the preview.
post #35 of 130
The hubby seems smart, collected and informed and Bree seems flustered, desperate and irrational. I hope the husband wins!
post #36 of 130
I have never watched Desperate Housewives, but that was an awesome preview! I really hope they keep portraying circ in such a negative light.

I thought they were hiding the fact that it wasn't her baby, so using an SNS might give it away.

Ok, after watching that I have to say I like Orson a lot more (and Bree a lot less...not that I ever liked her) I reeeeally hope he 'wins'. :
