I'd taped the first episode of this when it aired and watched it last night.  I wasn't very excited about this going into it but I have to say I loved the first episode.

It's primarily a vehicle for female actresses including Teri Hatcher and Felicity Huffman.  The show reminds me a lot of Picket Fences in its tone.  And its funny.  Wickedly funny.

And there are so many unanswered questions (not really spoilers): What does the grieving husband have buried under the swimming pool?  Why did the narrator commit suicide?

I have the second episode on tape and will watch it tonight.  Between this and Lost, ABC really has it on the ball this season.  I think they are replaying the 2nd episode Sat. night and episode three airs Sun night.  Down with Reality TV!

I just watched the first episode...great show!  I hope they can keep this up.  I can't imagine how a show like this could go on for seasons and seasons but if it keeps up the quality of the pilot I am there!

I haven't watched the second episode yet either....TiVo has totally changed how I watch TV.  There is just no rush.  When I feel like it, it will be there.

I've watched both episodes so far. I was hoping I would like this but so far i'm very meh about it.

My wife seems to like it and as there isn't anything I watch on sunday on HBO going on right now I might keep watching.

I've not watched it... mainly because it seems to me like a 'woman's show'; something that Lifetime would air. But maybe I'm wrong.  Cool

I thought so too.  That's why I put off watching the pilot.  I'm not sure the name Desperate Housewives is going to do the show justice in the long-haul.

And I've only seen the first episode but it's very funny.  If you like black humor you'd probably enjoy this.

Saw the first episode, part of the second.  I mean, it's an okay show, but just not my taste.  It is a little too womanish for my tastes.  But then, so is Charmed, Gilmore Girls, and any other show that showcases only women. . .

I thought the same thing.  Then while watching the annual injustice of the Red River Shootout I saw some trailers for it and decided to tape it for my wife.  Surprise surprise, its a damn fine show so far.  And yeah Teri Hatcher is smoke.  What happened to her tits though?  Is it me or did she shrink them?
