'DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES'' DESPERATE STORYLINE
'Desperate Housewives' wraps up its second season tomorrow night and it appears the cast of the show is opening up about their frank thoughts on the show's direction.
In THIS article from USA Today, James Denton reveals his discontent: "The cast got a little thick." Denton, whose character, Mike the hunky plumber, had virtually nothing to do this season. "We had 19 regulars this year, even more than 'Lost', so there were a lot of characters to service."
(Insert I'd-service-James-Denton-joke-any-day joke here.)
Meanwhile, it appears the flawless Marcia Cross has had her own skepticisms about her character Bree: "I love this part and what they have me do, but I've been at Marc [Cherry]'s door plenty of times going, 'You've got to be kidding."
What? Dropping your kid off in the middle of nowhere during a drunken stupor is not normal?
Lastly, there's that weird Applewhites family who vaguely comes in and out of the show's storyline from time to time. Mehcad Brooks who plays Matthew put it like this: "It's been frustrating. The show is called 'Desperate Housewives'; it's not called 'The Applewhites', and Betty Applewhite (Alfre Woodard) wasn't quite incorporated. There was seniority and priority, and we were marginalised and completely segregated from every family except the Van De Kamps."
If only they could capture all the drama that is taking place off the set and get it on camera.
In any case, creator Marc Cherry tells the publication that the Applewhites "are going out with a bang" in Sunday's finale.
Let's just home it's not yet another house fire.
