TV Show Reviews
Wives" review by Suzanne
Returns March 10 for season 7
I'm sad to say that this show has seen
better days. Everyone's looking way too old. But that's not
the worst part of it. They killed off one of the major
characters (one of the few that is aging pretty well) and
March 10 and 17 episodes are all about her life and people
being sad, crying, and trying to get past her death. I'm not
kidding. It's the most depressing two hours you'll ever
spend in your life.
I liked this show, but now I think it should
have been canceled. I guess after these two episodes, they
can only get better. They were the worst. It's one thing to
have a bit of melodrama. It's another to make your show a
complete sobfest and weepy. I still love the actors, but
they are all wasted in this. And when did Brian McNamara get
so fat? I used to think he was gorgeous. Ah, well, happens
to the best of us, I guess.
They do bring in a few new characters as we
say goodbye to some old ones. It's not enough to balance out
all the depressing stuff, though.
I was very glad to hear that they decided
not to cancel Drop Dead Divas after all. That is a much
better show than this one so it was an outrage when they
canceled it. I look forward to that show's return. I don't
usually suggest canceling a series unless it's really bad.
They should shoot this one and put it out of its misery.
