I was looking back through the threads here and was shocked to see this wasn't already here!

So who is your favourite Desperate Housewife, and why?

Gaby, all the way! Bree is second, Susan and Lynette third...I love them all for different reasons :D

But Gaby has the most fun stuff, I'm always happy when she's on screen because I like Carlos and her Kids....with Susan, there's Mike and it's usually a little boring.....Bree had tod eal with Orson's weird ways a lot so she was towned down the last seasons....Lynette is awesome but her storylines/fights with Tom get repeatative :D

Lynette is consistently awesome, but I have to vote Bree. She's flopped somewhat in the past season or two, but I really do love her in S1-3 :wub: :wub:

Gaby was great in S6, and Susan is always good - better with Edie to bounce off of, but she's gone :(

I like all of them except Susan (die, die, die !). Gaby is the most fun, Bree is the most complex character, but my favorite is probably... Lynette. Lynette is the most "real' character to me. She's a bundle of parental (and marital) anxieties that seems the most like a "real" person.

Plus, Mrs. H. Macy is probably the show's best actress to boot.

totally agree BookhouseBoy! Lynette is the only "real"desperate housewife, I think most people relate to her :thumbup:

haha how funny, so far only guys are discussing DH :thumbsup: :thumbup:

Oh well let me jump in then! I'm going to be the lone Susan supporter here. Probably because, and BHB will hate me for this, :P, she's the one I would probably most be like on the street. But Lynnette is agreeably the most realistic. If Bree was my neighbor I'd avoid her and her "Stepford Wife" attitude like the plague. And Gabi is highly entertaining but extremely spoiled.


Oh wait, come to think of my favorite resident of Wisteria Lane is actually:

I was so bummed when she left The West Wing and so happy when she turned up on DH!

CF4L I loveeeeeeeeee McClusky too!!! so glad she's series regular now, as she should! Marc Cherry promised the actress he WOULD NEVER kill her off, if she joined DH! Good, cause I could'nt handle that!

Susan gets on my nerves sometimes, but that's because they always give her the most boring storylines. But when she good, she's EXCELLENT!!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I aspire to BE Karen McCluskey! :lol:

Except frankly, I'd have smacked the stuffing out of Edie.:P

Oh and I also love Lee and I hope they bring him back.

Oh yes, how could I forget Karen McCluskey ! If SHE's included, yeah, then she's totally my favorite. If I was in my 70s, she'd totally be my girl. Hehe.

As for guys loving Desperate Housewives... I think that's why the show works. There's something for everyone - male and female, straight, gay, bi or whatever. :thumbsup:

Straight guys who dismiss Desperate Housewives without watching it need to get a clue. Yes, there's some soapiness but just like guys expect their girlfriends/wives to "get" why they like action and sci-fi movies, if you can't appreciate what is GREAT about Desperate Housewives... whateva !

very well said! I get that when a guy zaps around the channels and sees Bree and Orson talking over dinner or something he might think "oke, boring!" but there is so much more. When the writing is good, IT'S EXCELLENT!
