This is DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES. It’s my favourite American series. Even if the story may be tragic, it is rather funny and realistic and I think that the actors play very well.
This American series which started in 2005 in France on Canal+ channel was created by American writer and producer Marc Cherry and was immediately a great success.
We now know that season 8 will be the last one, unfortunately for all the passionate TV viewers all around the world, and I am one of them! So it’s my turn to be “desperate”!
But now, let me tell you about this TV series. All along the 180 episodes, this series stages the everyday life of some housewives, all living at the same street of Wisteria Lane, a quiet residential area of an American town called Fairview.
The four main characters are Susan Mayer, Bree Van de Kamp, Lynette Scavo and Gabrielle Solis but in the first episode of the first season, we learn that they had another good friend named Marie-Alice Young. But unfortunately, Marie-Alice committed suicide after she received an anonymous letter on which she could read : “I know what you did, it makes me sick, I will tell”
From this moment, the story is told by Marie-Alice’s voice, as if she was watching everything from the next world. Little by little, we discover some hidden secrets. Then, some marriages are broken, some new friendships are built. Each new season brings lots of new neighbours, such as family Applewhite, family Bolen, Catherine Mayfair or Renée and new problems or new secrets appear.
Of course, I really enjoy this series because of the twists and turns of the plot and because of the moral lesson at the end of every episode.
In good tourist, I visited the Universal Studios in Los Angeles during my last summer holidays and I was so excited when I had a ride in Wisteria Lane ! Nevertheless, the actors were not playing at that time, too bad for me! I would really like to meet them, particularly Eva Longoria (the actress playing Gabrielle Solis), because she is my favourite “desperate housewife”!
