This is one of my favourite TV shows, I think I’ve seen every episode about 5 times each. You think it’s going to just follow the lives of these boring women but it’s so exciting. There’s so much entertainment. Their lives are just a disaster. It’s definitely a show for all the women out there of all ages. There are some shocking moments and some moments where you will be brought to tears. There’s so much to talk about because they’re so many episodes so I’ll just list my top favourite ones.
The saddest storyline for me was Lynette’s cancer. It was when she finds out she’s defeated it that breaks my heart. I think the best storyline and the most exciting one for me were the ones about Mary Alice and why she killed herself. There was so much suspicion surrounding it, it was amazing and then finding out what happened was really shocking. Mary Alice was so sweet and innocent and then she had this big dark secret that nobody expected. The storm that wrecked havoc on the street was so exciting to watch and really realistic. That was a sad episode as well because they made it out that Lynette’s husband and her 4 kids were dead. Her acting in those scenes was brilliant, so believable. I also loved the plane crash episode and that sent a lot of shock waves and made changes to everyone’s lives. Then there was the baby swap storyline. There’s just so many. It’s a great show that is filled with drama but is also hilarious.
