Ever since Desperate Housewives ended I was sad, what will I watch? The same happened when Melrose Place ended as well. Yes, I love those types of shows. Now I have a new love, Devious Maids.
The show was created by the same person who created Desperate Housewives, Marc Cherry and one of the producers is Eva Longoria from Desperate Housewives. I have now caught up on watching all four episodes of the first series and hope that I will be able to see more. It is great to see another show along the same lines that has intrigue, gossip, and mystery. I cannot wait to see what happens next.
For those that don’t know, there is a maid called, ‘Flora’, she rushes to write something down, a note after she has been shot/stabbed (not sure) and she hides it. She ends up making her way out to the pool amid a party that her employers are hosting. She falls and dies in the pool. This is the introduction to the show… great don’t you think! Well I did. It certainly gets you thinking and guessing.
Now after four episodes I have learnt more about poor Flora and also the other maids and rich people who are the maid’s employers. It is getting very interesting and I won’t spoil it for those that are not as up to date as I.
One thing that I hope is that this show does not get cancelled. Every time I get involved somehow the show seems to be controversial and or not getting enough ratings and therefore means I never find out what will happen to the characters. This happened with GCB, I thought it a very clever, funny and a witty show, however it was cancelled and I for one was very upset about this decision. Why can’t they take the show online like many shows are run now days? I for one would watch and support it. Maybe it is due to advertising and not getting funding. Still sad none the less.
Do you feel sorry for Grant Show’s character in the show, I know I do. His wife on the show is not nice and I hope that he stands up and leaves her! I love the spark between his lovely maid Rosie and his character Spence. I have always loved Grant Show and I am yelling at the TV, leave her you deserve better! Oh well, I think there might be more yelling to help Grant, or shall I say Spence.
Have you started watching Devious Maids? What are your thoughts on the new show? Glad that I now have a show that is similar to my other ones. Send in your comments.
