DES­PER­ATE HOUSEWIVES

Drama 8.30pm, Seven

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Best On The Box - – DS

Housewives devo­tees, the end is nigh as the fran­chise starts its eighth and final sea­son. And while the gloss might have worn off the se­ries of sub­ur­ban in­trigue for any but the most diehard fans, this sea­son opener is a rip­per as Car­los’ (Ri­cardo An­to­nio Chavira) last-sea­son mur­der (come on, it was self-de­fence) of Gabrielle’s (Eva Lon­go­ria) evil step­fa­ther – and the cover-up by the housewives – has dev­as­tat­ing ef­fects.

In true housewives style, how­ever, even the dis­posal of the body – and the vic­tim’s car - has mo­ments of hi­lar­ity.
