The Final Season of Desperate Housewives

Updated on August 13, 2011

Say it ain't so!

Just a couple of hours ago I learned that this will be the final season for one of my all time favorite shows Desperate Housewives. What will we ever do for entertainment on our Sunday nights? I know that's been said so many times over the years when shows have announced that they will be going off the air, but I'll do this great show justice and ask it again.

I remember when this show debuted in 2004. It had some of the best promos I've ever seen, showing just enough of the show to tease the audience, but it wasn't really giving anything away besides mystery. I was out of town on the night when it was supposed to premiere and was so unbelievably sad when I missed the original airing, but was happy when I was able to catch it again. This is one of the only shows that lived up to the hype in which it promoted. The first episode gave you everything: sex, drama, great cast, great script, and it kept you wanting more. Since the scene when Gabrielle Solis (the character played by Eva Longoria) seduced her underaged gardener in her dining room and made love to him on the expensive table her husband bought I knew I would be back again and again, and I definitely was. Year after year, with the exception of one lull, but I caught back up to speed watching old episodes online.

What we fans always forget, but need to remember, is that even the best shows on television usually only have the endurance power of eight seasons, and I'm talking about an exceptional show. Think shows that rerun to this day and people still watch faithfully like The Cosby Show, The Andy Griffith Show, Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Full House. Yet, we're never prepared for the ending when it nears or when it finally happens. We never want the ride to end, but like all good things, it does.

The thing I'm going to miss the most are the lessons that each show brought, always a touch of morale with the narration, and the plots that always seemed farfetched, yet they would come full circle and you could identify with them in some way, shape or form.

I already miss this show, but we'll always have reruns.
