Desperate Housewives > Desperate Housewives Review: Farewell to Fairview > Comments Page 3
Wow... I admit I got bored at moments with the show, but in the end I was overtaken with such melancholy.... And my favourite story was between Bree and Trip - such amazing chemistry, those two...
It was a good ending, realistic and just the right amount of bitter-sweet...
I loved this show and I'm glad to see it go out perfectly. I'll miss you Desperate Housewives!
I loved it and it actually made me cry on the drive home as I realized that I'll soon be leaving my home of 23 years to go off to graduate school. My ONLY complaint is the suggestion by Mary Alice that they never saw each other again. After 14-15 years of intimate friendship, the girls are like family. It is difficult to believe that they NEVER played poker again, or at least saw each other from time to time. That part sort of upset me and by sort of, I mean it really upset me.
This was the PERFECT ending to the show! It really tied up loose ends and brought all the major stories full circle. I cried when Mrs. McKlusky died, but that's the way she wanted to go: peaceful & loved. I also teared up when the girls were playing Poker for the last time together. And I'm sure everyone noticed the amount of dead bodies that seemed to pile up on Wisteria Lane? But it was GREAT to see many old favorites. Nora, Juanita, George, etc. Seeing Mike made me smile. I will always love Mike, as he was one of those characters that we could never hate. He was smart, sexy and strong. Ugh! His death wasn't fair but after last night, it made sense for Susan to leave the Lane. R.I.P Desperate Housewives! 8 years and you went out strong and beautiful! =]
I'm really going to miss the show, I tuned in every Sunday since it started! Now I don't know what am I going to watch.. I loved this episode, I was kinda of sad that the ladies didn't get together when they were older, I think i would've been an awesome thing to see them as old ladies. Now I'll start watching it since season 1 !!! =) Long Live Desperate Housewives.
This was the one and only show I always made sure to watch. My highlight of the week!. While I am going to miss this show a lot, I felt the ending was perfect. Having the new owner of Susan's house hiding her secret certainly leaves the door open to future episodes. That was a nice touch.
The quick flash backs of memorable moments was fun, seeing the two grandmas together holding the baby & Karen passing away at the same time the baby was born was touching, the ghosts of people who had passed was this final episode was well thought out.
Couldn't have asked for a better final episode. Going to miss the frolics on Wisteria Lane!!!!
I am going to really miss this show i have been a fan since day one!!! First let me say when ms. Mcclucksys died i knew she was dead when julie when into birth. It was a bitter sweet moment. And all the other things they went through well that was just everyday drama for wisteria lane. But i am gonna really miss susan bree lynette and gabby those was my homegirls now what am i gonna watch : (
It was a good ending. Nice of them to bring back all of those who had been killed off, too.
GREAT ENDING too. Always nice to have a back door - in case someone gets jonesing for a spin-off. : )
While I didn't watch from the very beginning, I have enjoyed the last 5 years. The ending was bittersweet but very realistic. As friends and acquaintances, we are in each other's lives for a reason and a season but family is forever. Sometimes we're lucky enough to have life long friends but most drift apart and move on with their families and lives. They did it all and took care of each other in the process. I really can't see a reason for a reunion except if Susan remarries or Julie and Lynette's son marry one day. I'd rather just remember them as it ended than try a reunion that doesn't have the same feel. All and all, a fitting ending of a great show.
This is right up there with the final episode of "M*A*S*H".
THIS is the way to end a series.
All loose ends are neatly tied up,EVERYBODY gets a Happy Ending,
Everybody moves on.
Take a bow, ladies. You made suburbis look HOT!!
And did anybody notice the finale aired on Mother's Day?
I suggest ALL of you buy THE COMPLETE SERIES ON DVD FOR NEXT MOTHER'S DAY,
whether you're a Mom or not.
It was such a great ending, with just the right amount of happy instead the usual unrealistic happy ever after. People move on with their lives, just because they never played poker again doesn't mean they don't talk on the phone and all those small things. Karen dying, and Tom's speech to lynette made me cry so much..! Renée on grumpy mode, and carlos &gaby crack me up so much! The way ben looks at renée is beautiful, that man is a wise man! Susan going from angry to just feeling lucky, Bree finally being able to be happy while being herself.EVERYTHING stayed true to the characters..It was the best episode of the season, i loved every little thing about it.
so so sad that its over, end of an era. I could have watched this show for years to come.
The finale was good however i would have prefered it if they had stayed on the lane,then i could have atleast just wondered what had happened...dont like the fact that new people moved in.
Im going off to cry now :'(
I was sooo glad that Lynette and om got back together! I loved the montage, of the ladies lives. And I loved the ghost of Fairview watching over Susan as she drove out of town, I really loved that it started with Mike and ended where it ALL began, with Mary Alice Young! R.I.P. Desperate Housewives.....I shall miss thee terribly!
I thought the series finale was fantastic! I couldn't have asked for a better ending to a show I love so much and have done for 8 years! RIP Desperate housewives.
What happened to Paul Young?
All in all the first half was good. The second left a bad taste in my mouth. I didn't like any part of it. Oh well
I loved most of the episode up until the end. I didn't care for the fact that the ladies drifted apart. It would have been nice to replace the scene with the new housewife with a poker scene from the future, like a reunion. Also, what happens with Renee? Does she stay on the lane or move? The cliffhanger didn't mean anything to me because I don't care about the new housewife on the lane.
Aside from the ladies drifting apart, the finale was lovely. The Tom and Lynette scene was great, the court room scenes were suspenseful. I would have liked for Susan to have had a happier ending, and for some other things to be explained in more detail.
Someone asked Felicia if a reunion could happen and she said she thinks it's unlikely, sad. I guess the ending didn't really leave room for that.
I think the show ended well, but I just wish that Susan got a chance at love. We got to see everybody else's futures, but hers. I'm glad that she left with her kids and grandchild, but I just wish she could live happily ever after with someone.
PS: I know it was impossible to happen because of the problems between nicollette sheridan and marc cherry, but it would have been great to see eddie's ghost at the last scene, after all, for five years, she was one of the ladies! Still great finale! Im truly happy!! Best of luck to all members of the desperate housewives cast! ;)
First let me say that I enjoyed a lot these past eight years with these four ladies by my side, making me laugh, cry, and all the possible feelings someone can experience. I really enjoyed the finale, glad that all of them got their happy ending! the only thing that i felt, and im pretty sure that im not the only one, is that susan should have had her happy ending with her husband by her side like the rest of the ladies. I honestly hated the fact that they had to kill mike to create some drama, but still, that only showed and proved that life is full of twists and nothing lasts forever, and you have to move on and keep your head up and live for the future,and it was good to see at least susan happy at the end, even if it wasnt the happy ending I wanted for her a long time ago! Im gonna miss this show soo much and as susan said, know all I have are the memories of this amazing show that made my sundays the best nights ever! Farewell ladies!!!!
