    Probably RTE2 ... they have a good record with this show in particular. I've seen the finale and it is worth it. Pity about seasons 6 and most of 7 though. Would have been a classic otherwise.

    I'd love to see a spin off show
    about Bree the politician and her lawyer fella


  • Registered Users Posts: 380 ✭✭ScottSF


    I don't know if this is a spoiler, but I thought
    there was some hint that they might start the show all over again with a new cast (same street)
    . I bought the season on iTunes (US) so already finished watching the season several weeks ago :)

    Just saw this:
    Kathryn Joosten, the Emmy Award-winning actress best known for playing Mrs McCluskey in Desperate Housewives has died after a long battle with lung cancer. She was 72.

    WARNING: Possible Finale Spoiler in the link:
    http://www.rte.ie/ten/2012/0603/joostenk.html

    so was she acting the final season or was it real life for her?

    either way im saddened by the news she was so brilliant an actress.

    :(

    I just watched the last show there
    AM a little disappointed
    I hate the fact they never get to meet up again

    Maybe it was just so final.

    Rip Kathryn Joosten

    Her death in reality made the last episode that more poignant.

    The final could have done with a shot of Edie at least she did die on the lane where as some of the others didnt die there


  • Registered Users Posts: 188 ✭✭Little Miss Lady


    You are absolutely right
    I had forgotten all about her and she was such a huge character in it

    She sued the producer for assault

    Maybe it was Edie in the box :eek::D

    I was a bit disappointed with the ending. I didn't know they'd separated into two episodes, it might have made better viewing keeping them together.

    Renee's one liners were great :D

    So they never see each other again? After so many years on the Lane and all the murders, suicides, plane crashes and hurricanes are we really to believe they never got back in the same room together? :confused:

    You have to admire them all the same for finishing with a full stop instead of leaving it open in case the reruns resurrect a bit of faux nostalgic interest.

    I thought the wedding scene really highlighted the cast tensions. There they all were clinking glasses and Terri Hatcher wasn't even in the same room :D

    I was a bit disappointed that they didn't show us what the future held for Susan and Julie.

    Other than that they seemed to wrap everything else up well, but I can definitely see 'Desperate Houswives: The Next Generation' coming along with a new cast in a decade or so.

    Knew there would be no way in hell they would let Edie back even for a glimpse after the whole real life court battle!

    So they never see each other again? After so many years on the Lane and all the murders, suicides, plane crashes and hurricanes are we really to believe they never got back in the same room together? :confused:

    Think it hinted that they didn't ALL get back together in the same room but that probably means there was occasions when 2 or 3 got to meet up. In fairness they did spread out all over the country and think
    Gabby+Carlos
    even moved abroad? So over the years doesn't matter how close yous were things get in the way of reunions! :/

    Yeah was surprised at that too!

    Recognised a lot of the
    ghosts
    but some I haven't a clue who they are or really remember their storyline. But who the hell was the
    wee ghost boy with Karen
    ??

    They didn't move abroad, they moved to California. I felt the end for Susan and Julie was really ambiguous, they didn't mention anything about Porter and if he was involved with the baby at all.

    Ultimately I felt the whole season was poor overall, they introduced a few new characters that the audience didn't really have time to connect with and the finale felt very rushed.
