Season 6 was such a great revelation, full of drama, strife, and action (even a serial killer) that we’ve come to love on our little corner of Wisteria Lane.
Season 7? It`s like the great foreplay to horrible sex.
Now don`t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed the first couple of Episodes in the new Season. At first, bringing Vanessa Williams into the fold (fresh off of her Wilhelmina bout), you`d figure “alright, sparks are about to fly, and shit`s about to hit the proverbial fan.” Which was the case early on, where VW (who plays Renee Perry) was her genuine bad bitchy self to those around her, that we`d grown to love on Ugly Betty.
But, it`s not just that. The whole Susan as a soft-core Porn housewife to pay her bills is a bit much. I mean c’mon, seriously? This is Susan we`re talking about here.
And what about the loose tie-ins to Season 6`s cliffhanger. You`d think Lynette as strong as she is, would have at least some PTSD trauma to deal with following her ordeal. I mean even the hard-as-steel Christina Yang is still dealing with her ordeals following that epic Grey`s Anatomy Season 6 finale.
So far, the once promising VW addition is rapidly looking like a downgrade from Drea de Matteo`s great performance on the show. Desperate Housewives has even seen a drop in viewership from Season 6 to Season 7 by a couple of Million Viewers, and a Ratings Drop for their time-slot over the last few Years (hitting a new low of #14 last Year).
Here`s hoping to rapid improvement as the Season goes on. For now, not even a Gabby centered Maternity-Ward Faux Pas can help save this Season IMO.
