►Will Desperate Housewives Latest Kill Hurt the Show?

Friday, April 24, 2009

Well, after a few years of rumors, it has finally happened. Desperate Housewives finally killed off Edie Britt.

When the was news of her demise was spinning around a few months ago, my wish was...this cannot be true, hopefully just another rumor; but when she was left on the ground after being electrocuted, it seemed they were bent on killing her off.

Hope against hope, they did.

Buddy TV has a poll about this and 72 percent of the people who took the poll feel the same way, very disappointed that she's leaving the show.

Since, she began on the show it was always my hope they would give her more airtime and Fellicity Huffman's character, Lynette Scavo, less time. One of my wishes came true. To me, Nicolette Sheridan's character, Britt really helped to make the show fun, edgy, and humorous.

Britt and Gabrielle Solis, portrayed brilliantly by Eva Longoria, are my two favorites, followed closely by Bree Van De Kamp, played by Marcia Cross.

I love how they styled Sheridan this season, so well groomed and elegant, very stylish with such of a smart fashion sense. Reminiscent of back to the 40s with elegance and yet contemporary for today. The fashion was upped this season from previous seasons and, for me, was rivaling Sex and the City for the consummate look at boomer women and fabulous fashion. And, Britt was one of the major fashion icons on the show.

The show has now lost some of the enchantment with her gone.

I am hoping they realize what a big mistake they made by killing her off and make it into someone's bad dream and bring her back.

What are your thoughts on this?....Will Wisteria lane hold as much attraction for you with the Edie Britt character ousted?

My fears are we will have to endure more of Susan Mayer's neurotic character and the boring and predictable manipulations of Scavo. Edie Britt vamped it up, played off the other characters beautifully and added the common sense the other characters needed to keep them from going too far over-the-top.

It was devastating to see her leave the show. It doesn't seem like they ever gave her enough air time, at least not for me. She was always in total control of every scene she was in--pulled the attention to her by her sharp acting and her beauty. The show will not be as good as it was with her in it. She was a great drawing point to come back to the show week after week.

It doesn't make sense to send her off the show. WTF were they thinking??
