The last week of May sweeps is usually among the best television of the year. First, yours truly is working more--which means more $$, so no complaints there, thank you very much. Second reason: the season/series finales are broadcast which (hopefully) feature the best writing and character development of the season.
Next week Desperate Housewives will wrap it's blockbuster season. My highlight of the year was last night when integration finally came to Wisteria Lane via a U-Haul truck.
The new kids on the block are Alfre Woodard and ... Mehcad Brooks. MB's brief introduction was bittersweet. As you've been hearing for months and months, he's such a stunna ... there's no tiring of looking at the 6'5 former All-American baller.
The tease at the end of last night's episode was unexpected, the perfect segue into next week's season finale that fully introduces his character and that of on-screen mom Alfre Wodard. Why bittersweet? We have to wait another week to see him.
Thanks to Jimmy at Austin City-Unlimits for the screen captures.
