What I'm Watching: Desperate Housewives

Desperate Housewives: Season 4, Episode 10 "Welcome to Kanagawa" (F)

I cannot find a thing to like about this episode, with the possible exception of the slowly moving-along Dylan/Katherine/Adam storyline. Otherwise, plotlines are being continually recycled. Susan is just too babyish and immature, and Bree's charade to "pimp out her son" (my thoughts, then his words a few minutes later) was painful. Anything related to Gabrielle is just too wildly preposterous to be worth mentioning. Lynette's family is far too swiftly rescued, and Ida's death is a real cop-out in terms of killing off major characters. Lynette always needs to make a problem out of every single thing in her life, and she always seems like she is in a much more serious show. On that note, it is far too easy to tell when the tone of the show will shift insanely dramatically from comic to dramatic. This show used to be great, but I do think it is beyond recovery at this point. This is it as far as episodes go until the strike is over.
