When everyone was all excited about the television series Desperate Housewives I joined in but only got to watch the first two seasons because I never really had time to sit down and watch it. A few weeks ago my friend brought me back to the series and gave me the whole 8 seasons of it and I have been hooked ever since. I am currently watching Season 6 and the first episode left me feeling a lot of different things. Here’s the thing.
If you go back to season 5 Mike had moved in with Catherine and they seemed happy. Well, Catherine mostly did because she hadn’t been in a relationship in a while and was happy to finally have someone in her life. Mike seemed distant and still in love with his ex wife Susan. (But apparently they had both “moved on”) Catherine obviously didn’t see that Mike wasn’t head over heels for her because she was in a love bubble of her own. I think it was brave of Catherine to ask Mike if he was ever going to marry her because Mike told her the truth that he didn’t know. And you know that for most women we choose to not pay attention to what a man says. He actually told her the truth but we always find a way of hoping somehow he will change his mind because we are just programmed like that I guess. The other issue I have with Mike is that he will go above and beyond for Susan just to make her happy but clearly won’t do much for Catherine. I can safely say Catherine gets half baked love from Mike but Susan on the other hand…There are real life cases where you date a guy and he treats you like crap but then dates the next woman and treats her like a queen and you wonder what the fuck is that all about? So then;the series continues and a whole lot of things happen but this is the part that really got to me when I watched episode one of season 6.
Mike just went on to marry Susan and left Catherine out in the cold. Okay fine, maybe Catherine made a not so wise decision by hooking up with someone she knew still had unresolved issues but give her a break, you can’t exactly choose who you fall in love with, or can you? Why does Susan always get what she wants though? That again is not fair! I was really sad on Catherine’s behalf. How do women end up in situations like this though? How do we just feel the need to fall for the emotionally unavailable guy? Do we not see the signs? And as for Mike, how do you just drop Catherine like a hot potato and get back to your ex wife (Susand) and forget about all the promises you made to Catherine? Didn’t she at least mean something to you? Does this mean she doesn’t have feelings too or she should just get over it and move on. Mind you she stays right across the street and will get to witness everything the pair gets up to. Man, the world is a cold ass place…
I should clearly stop over analysing things, it’s just a series!!
