Let’s Go Blog Hopping 5

This is the week of the season finale.  We look forward to May every year because of May Sweeps, but with the writers strike last year, the season was shorter and the season finales came faster.

Sunday, I was slightly wowed by the makeovers in New Orleans on Extreme Makeover:  Home Edition, but I can’t help but think that will 18 builders and crews, why not make over more than 2 buildings? Especially in New Orleans, have 18 buildings. Build a recreation center or after school facility. A library. But overall, nicely done. I think for me, anything that improves New Orleans, is a win win for me. I would have loved it if one whole season was nothing but an extreme makeover along the Gulf Coast. Ratings might suffer, but if we really are committed to rebuilding along the Gulf Coast, ratings do not and should not matter. But I’m not in charge and Ty Pennington did not ask me so c’est la vie.

But Desperate Housewives? Wow at all that Catherine’s been through, but I cheered inside when the other housewives rallied to her side. 

Kayla became so evil that it almost made me sick to my stomach as I suppressed my own rage on Lynette’s behalf. Rachel Fox, the actress who plays Kayla,  is very good at giving evil.

I don’t like the name Maynard and surely Susan and Mike could have compromised and named him Conner Maynard Delfino.

Now, that five years later jump that they threw at us was very unexpected and seems like it will rev the show up for many twists and turns.  Another blog Televisionista knew about the 5 year jump in April but I discovered it after the episode was shown.  The blogger has some great questions and possibilities for life on Wisteria Lane in 2013.

In Charlotte, just as Susan walked in the door, our TV screens went black. Booooooooo WSOC TV. Thank God for www.abc.com where I was able to catch those last 13 seconds. USA Today offers a look at what’s in store for Desperate Housewives next season including that Marc Cherry does not plan to be around past season 7. What’s cool is he would like to take it back to the year before Mary Alice kills herself, a DH prequel, if you will. We’ll get more of Mary Alice, Paul, Zach and Rex.

I surely was amused to see how far Gabby has fallen down the All That Totem Pole. I just wished that when Carlos fell down the steps the other night that his sight was restored. It’ll be interesting to see Gabby deal with less than perfect beauty wise daughters will impact her and her storyline. I was really glad not to see her in anything shiny yesterday. Cotton looks good on her.

Now, let’s think about something for a second. Extreme Makeover gets 2 hour season finale. Desperate Housewives gets the same. Ditto for Grey’s Anatomy.

Yet, I only get 60 minutes minus commercials for Ugly Betty. Boooooooooooooooo!

I’m not ready to say goodbye to Ugly Betty and the gang yet. Last week’s episode was wonderful now that Wilhemina and Mark are back at Mode. Loved them getting off the elevator in matching colors last week. Glad to see real drama and tension return to Mode. Look forward to what season 3 brings.

Judith Light is one of my favorite characters especially when she’s maternal to Betty. I want them to bring Yoga (Lorraine Touissant) back as her sidekick as she made the show fun as well.

Now tomorrow’s season finale looks intense with Henry proposing, Gio asking Betty to go to Rio (Gio Rio, lol) and Daniel’s child who looks a bit Latino.

The blog Televisionary reveals that guest star Lindsey Lohan won’t just be in the season finale this week, but she will also be back next season. Seems she used to be a classmate of Betty’s who used to be mean to Betty a la Amanda. Will be interesting to see how this all pans out this week as well as next season.

I’m looking forward to the return of both of these shows in September.  The possibilities of life on Wisteria Lane and at Mode magazine are endless, but I’ll be tuned in for every minute.
