The Big Picture

  • The final season of Desperate Housewives had its share of great moments, but the series finale ruined the show in the final five minutes when its revealed that the women cease to be friends afterward.
  • Susan, Lynette, Gaby, and Bree went through so much together over the show's eight seasons, so it's unrealistic that they don't even bother to keep in touch.
  • The lack of closure and explanation for the end of their friendships is disappointing and doesn't fit well with the rest of the show, which was very female-friendship focused.
