Another Season of "Desperate Housewives" Means...Another Season of "Desperate Housewives"

Let us welcome ourselves to another season of ABC's popular primetime serial Desperate Housewives. It's a new season, and that means there's a new neighborhood mystery to unfold over the course of twenty-two (plus or minus a few) episodes. It's kind of like the Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher turnover rate in the Harry Potter books, or the Spinal Tap drummer situation. This time, the new neighbor of mystery was an old neighbor from "twelve years before"...with a daughter who has no memory of this place. Come to think of it, it's also like the supervillain mutant of the week during the first season or so of Smallville (is that show still on the air?).

I'll probably catch several episodes here and there, but I'm not that excited about it. I have other, more workaholic, things to do with my Sunday nights. I'll probably read up on the season on Wikipedia or something if I want a brief diversion in the middle of this maelstrom of labor. (I need not say more.)

It's also interesting to note the painfully obvious Macy's product placement during the season premiere, where Bree and her husband (the guy in several David Lynch projects) were shopping at Macy's. Call me old-fashioned, but I like my sponsored posts fully disclosed, and I like my television commercials during commercial breaks - so I can fast-forward past them on my old-fashioned VCR.

Finally, when is the new season of Lost going to premiere?
