Housewives & The Walkers: Sex On The Mind

Housewives & The Walkers: Sex On The Mind

Posted by Dustin on 02.22.2010 at 8:50 pm

Here are my quick thoughts on last night’s dramas “Desperate Housewives” and “Brothers and Sisters.”

First up on “Housewives,” I am absolutely loving Julie Benz as Robin (the stripper). She’s been amazing on the show. Yeah some might consider her an Eddie replacement on the outside, but the gist of this show was to show that inside she was nothing like Eddie and the girls on the block realized not to judge her on her past in this episode. FYI, Julie Benz was only to be a guest role, she’s been upped to recurring, with a possibility of being added onto the shows cast.

I thought Susan’s story with Robin was somewhat painful, and not just because Mike was in pain. Once again we had to watch Susan act like an arse and put her foot in her mouth, treating Robin like a slutty stripper because she was helping Mike out with his constant back pain. This time though I can’t fault Susan too much, I mean seeing a younger attractive woman with her hands (and feet) constantly all over her husband, yeah, she might have some issues. I think though they should have talked about it, especially given what we later found out about Robin! There really was no reason for her to move out, other than to advance another story of course.

The other story of course was Robin moving in with Katherine (to try and save her friendship with Susan) and then putting the moves on Katherine! Yup, Robin is lesbionic, or at least bi. Katherine was asserting how she was over dating men, when Robin suggested she try pursuing other avenues which is what she did. They shared a quick kiss, which was more about rebuffing some pigs at a bar than anything, but later Katherine started to think about Robin. I actually found myself really liking their story above all others this episode. This story might actually work and not just be some ratings stunt.

Gabby, in an attempt to keep Anna away from Danny, offered to send her off to New York to be a model. Anna however really likes Danny. Yeah it’s not hard to see where this is leading, and given the spoilers for 2 weeks from now we know for sure.

I can’t believe the show did it, but they did, they made me actually feel for Orson in this episode. Bree, using Robin’s advice, tried to get Orson excited with a strip tease that failed miserably. However in the end, she and Orson made strides repairing their marriage. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, I expect Orson to *bleep* it up when he gets his legs back and hides it from Bree.

Onto “Brothers and Sisters.” I am not enjoying the Kitty storyline at all. Frankly I think the announcement of Rob Lowe leaving is what has turned me off. I’ve always had my ups and downs with Robert, but knowing he’s going makes this story not very enjoyable. Though they did bring back Park Dad this week, perhaps they will get a second chance? I dunno though, he might feel like he was the consolation prize really.

I absolutely loved the storyline involving Sarah and Roy, along with Luc’s return this week. Sarah trying to convince Paige that sometimes the stable boy is the better choice over the one who makes your heart flutter and stomach turn. We all knew she was trying to convince herself to make it work with Roy, and in the end he dumped her because it wasn’t working! She was however very romantically reunited with Luc, via Roy’s gift of a painting they saw and she loved. Little did she know Luc painted it. I did however wonder, hello, was the painting not signed? Was their no artist credit hanging in the gallery? I guess that would have taken the romance out 🙂

Rebecca lost the baby, not the way to celebrate Valentine’s day, which was the focus of this episode. I think from the spoilers we all knew it wasn’t going to happen. I think some of us probably expected it not to happen even before the spoilers given the tension between her and Justin. Oh and did they ever do anything with the story that he might have a learning disability? It seems they’ve just ignore him and his schooling for weeks now!

Holly once again made me actually like her in this episode. Not only did she not apparently sleep with Dennis, she came clean with David about it. She also canceled her sale of her shares of Ojai to Dennis. Yeah you know he’s gunna be pissed. I love when Nora went off on Holly at the end of the episode and then Holly admitted she didn’t go through with the sale because Nora had earlier told her that they were now family and that meant everything to her. Nora said it best . . . “Holly you are exhausting!”

Of course we were left with Holly telling Nora who was after her shares, and Nora looking stunned by Dennis York’s name. Ahhhhh! I want to know the secret! Who is he and why does he have it out for William so? Is this a love triangle from the past involving Nora? Are one of the Walker’s not William’s kids? Tune in next week I guess.




  1. Did Justin and Rebecca ever get married?

  2. No the wedding was called off when Kitty passed out on the beach. What ever happened to Ryan, I still think hes Saul’s kid. Love Sarah and Luc back together, she needs a spark otherwise drab single mother gets old.
    I really hope they keep Julie Benz on DHW, loved her since Buffy and Angel. Not only is Katherine’s story good but it changes the dynamic between the wives as they have someone more open about sex to talk to since almost weekly one of them has an issue related to sex.

  3. The reason for Sarah not knowing Luc did the painting – fundraiser for the gallery – Each painting sold for $500 with anonymous artists so you only chose the painting based on how it made you feel not who painted it.
