Desperate Addiction

I just recently bought Desperate Housewives: The Complete First Season. To be honest, when DH came out sometime last year I wasn't really a big fan. Everybody was talking about it, especially on how they could relate to the characters. Even Laura Bush cited the show in one of her interviews or speech (I'm quite unsure but she did mention it. jokingly). I thought that I would just get bored watching since I'm not married and quite a far cry from getting into one.

To my surprise, watching disc one alone changed my entire perspective about the show. The cast is impeccable and the elements of the show (such as storyline, the setting, music etc.) were like pieces of a puzzle, just a perfect fit. When you just thought that it can't get any better, it just does episode per episode. When things just happen impossible? maybe, but definitely plausible. Watching their desperations and dark secrets unfold, twisted as it may sound, is very entertaining. The four main stars of the show are Teri Hatcher (Susan Mayer), Marcia Cross (Bree Van De Kamp), Felicity Huffman (Lynette Scarvo) and Eva Longoria (Gabrielle Solis). My favorite among the wives, torn between Bree and Lynette. Just can't wait for the 2nd season.

My unexpected purchase of this series is a result of birthday, christmas money + record store = uncontrollable shopping spree. I've purchased tons of DVD's and CD's that I've deprived myself for sometime, it really feels good to buy things you like. I'd be posting a couple of reviews of the items that I bought as soon as I watch or listen to them.
