It's interesting that the developing apathy towards this show here on TCF -- no thread a day later? -- isn't reflected generally in the ratings. DH is still at the top of the charts (although this episode did trail football on Sunday). I enjoy small moments of the show now, but don't care about the big stuff. Small being scenes like Gabrielle's second confession, Bree's TV gambit at the open, etc. And at least they're managing to integrate the Applewhite story now, so that it's more tolerable. (But still not compelling. There's no mystery to it, save for who might be after the Applewhites, but the whole focus has been on the housewives possibly learing that Caleb is in the house. Oooooo!) Plus, we've got the return of Martha Huber's sister, although I was sorry to see she wasn't around in this episode. But it's really impossible to care about anyone or what happens to them. Gaby and Carlos are a solid couple again, at least until they are not. (And why isn't Carlos back in jail after beating up the photographer last week?) Susan is in a relationship now, at least until she is not. Lynette is now Gaby, a selfish, bitter shrew. Bree is a caricature of herself. And is a catfight ever a sign of a show that isn't (how appropriate) desperate? Anyway, I'll keep watching for the good individual moments in the show, because that's still pretty fun viewing. But I'm over the overall concept.
