 2011.05.30 updated quotes and drama overview.

Desperate Housewives was officially renewed by ABC on May 17, 2011, for an eighth season.




每一個人都有秘密,也許是急於埋葬的過去、也許是難以解釋的習慣、也也許是無法面對的現實。但是當你不得不托盤而出的時候,這些confessions可以找誰吐訴呢?

開始看Desperate Housewives是個意外,大概是2006年冬天某個沒事拿著遙控器亂轉台的晚上。

故事從Mary Alice Young的告別式開始,死亡讓她丟棄了包袱,清楚看見那些發生在鷹州美景鎮紫藤巷(Wisteria Lane in Fairview, Eagle)的生活瑣碎。透過她的眼睛,社區裡看似誇張卻又真實的秘密,就像被打開的潘朵拉的盒子一樣,一個接一個地在我們面前展開。

戲劇放大也複雜了人生的悲歡離合,每一扇大門後面都有每個家庭必須得面對的問題。雖然那些she fell in love with her ex and his ex-ex hooked up with him實在是肥皂得可以,但是刪去那些之後,仍可以看見Bree、Gabrielle、Lynette、Susan、Edie、Katherine為自己的家庭用力活著的努力。

因為生活在同一條街道的無法切割,儘管謊言不斷在她們之間穿梭,她們還是握著彼此的手、以friendship為名(雖然她們比較像frenemies),走過生命的轉折。外遇、破產、癌症、官司、心機、手段,這些都是for better or worse的過程。


 
完美主義不逾規矩的Bree,與同性戀兒子及未成年懷孕女兒的關係總是緊繃得像是在走鋼索。
她從沒想過自己會走出家裡的廚房,卻在一次又一次的失望之後,擁有了鎮上最棒的烘焙事業。

 
總是知道自己要什麼的Gabrielle,雖然在婚姻裡有過背叛,天生模特兒的她最愛還是Carlos。
她最討厭的就是會亂跑吵鬧的小孩,卻在Carlos的計謀下,開始學習怎麼看管兩個頑皮的女兒。

 
曾經在廣告業大放異彩的Lynette,為了四個孩子甘願(或不甘願)成為stay-at-home mom。
她從沒放棄能再次揮灑實力的夢想,成為Carlos公司副總之後,試圖在工作與家庭間找到平衡。

 
做什麼事情都少一根筋的Susan,還好有乖巧的女兒Julie支撐陪伴她走過婚變的不知所措。
她總是太過習慣依賴別人溫暖幫助,每次都在衝動之後懊惱躲藏,在無意之間踩著別人的痛處。


總是不吝展現姣好身材的Edie,雖然有時候真是個bitch,但其實她比任何人都要率真坦白。
她總是太過習慣於掩飾自己的脆弱,車禍意外之後留給紫藤巷的,是滿懷的感謝與無限的想念。


沒有任何料理難得倒她的Katherine,從家暴跟外遇跌撞過來,帶著女兒的秘密搬回紫藤巷。
她的不安全感讓她像是帶刺的玫瑰,在那些小心機、小手段後面,受傷最深的其實總是她自己。
