Series Finale: May 13, 2012

Ah "Desperate Housewives". The time has finally come to an end. Now what I am going to do on Sunday nights? This show has managed to keep me entertained now for eight seasons with enough twist, turns, and drama to make me dizzy.

I enjoyed this season. I feel that the series "went out" while it still had a good, solid fan base. Even though this was the last season it was NOT short on Mystery, humor, and the ever present drama that we all love. The finale showed exactly what I wanted to see, which was how the writers were going to conclude the story-lines of the four main characters: Susan, Lynette, Bree and Gaby and I was not disappointed.

As much as I enjoyed this show, all good things must come to an end sadly, this was "Desperate Housewives" time. Wisteria Lane will live on now through DVD'S.

When ABC and creator/executive producer Marc Cherry announced during the summer of 2011 that the upcoming eighth season of "Desperate Housewives" would be its last, it probably came as little surprise for a series that was showing its age quite a bit. When it premiered in the fall of 2004, "Housewives," along with its fellow freshman series "Lost" were the breakout hits of the 2004-2005 television season and gave new ratings vitality to the ABC network. Since then, "Desperate Housewives" had lost favor with critics following its well-publicized and messy sophomore slump. Viewers also gradually declined each season after the first year as the Sunday night landscape became crowded by the likes of "Sunday Night Football," "Family Guy," "The Walking Dead," and "Dexter," and TV viewership as a whole dropped with the rise of DVRs and online viewing. Still, "Desperate Housewives" continued to be an important player on Sundays and the fact that "Housewives" had kept its 9 p.m. timeslot for the entirety of its 8-year run shows the level of confidence ABC had in it. Furthermore, "Housewives" still held onto a very dedicated (although much smaller than the highs reached in season 1) fanbase that continued to tune in every Sunday for their weekly dose of soap opera, wit, and popcorn crime drama that "Desperate Housewives" was known for.

The fact that "Desperate Housewives" was a declining show on the outside said very little about it creatively, as those who stuck around after the second season would realize that for much of its eight years, the show had been remarkably steady.

The best thing about "Desperate Housewives" final season is that it nicely bookends Season 1 by going back to its' roots and entangling ALL the women in the same mystery.

With Gabby's abusive stepfather dead and the ladies banding together to keep the nasty secret, this season has a more cohesive feel to it. Fans of Marcia Cross/Bree will be delighted because she practically assumes lead status here as her character is the one who steps up to the plate when the majority of suspicion falls upon her. The writers take Bree as far away as possible from the demure Miss Manners stereotype she was in the beginning and Cross rises to the occasion wonderfully. She always was my favorite and doesn't disappoint here.

Vanessa Williams' character Renee comes across more sympathetic this season as she's not used to generate friction among any of the characters like she was last year.

This being the finale, the producers kill off several characters and not just peripheral ones like they did in the past. We also get some surprise and welcome returns from departed characters of seasons' past to help bring closure.

A great end to one of the best series of the last decade. While it's not as good as Seasons 1 or 3, it's still miles better than the poor shows ABC is foisting on the public as replacements (the now-cancelled "GCB" and boring, overrated "Revenge").

FOUR STARS.

This last and finale season picks up where season seven left us; on a rollercoaster ride of emotion and surprises. Newcomers on Wisteria Lane are intriguing and have loads of charisma to sell, especially Charles Mesure as Ben. What a presence! Season five and season six were, to me, of lesser quality. Although I've always remained a fan, I thought that the episodes were starting to become caricatures of themselves. I even went as far as to regret that they didn't end the show at the end of season four, with that original and perfect ending showing us the characters five years older. In a way, I still think that it was the perfect way to say goodbye. Even though I love Marc Cherry's creation, I think he stretched it a bit too far. But if you could go back in time and adjust some things, I'd take season five, six, seven and eight and morph them into one big, incredible single season and make it the ultimate season five (and last one). But with all things being equal, season seven, to my surprise, renewed my interest in this TV series, making me remember what I loved in this show in the first place. And season eight was like an extension of the previous one. I find myself sad that it's all over. Along with "The Sopranos" and "Lost", "Desperate Housewives" was, to me, the best TV series of its era.

In this last season, you get the same story arc as before, with each character going through his or her own personal adventures while interweaving his or her path with the others. Lines are crossed, wars are declared, treasons become necessary, Hearts and lives are broken, secrets are revealed and, ultimately, peace and joy prevail. A central idea dominates the entire season while several other little mysteries are being solved.
