Preview: The Return of John the Gardener

A hearty welcome to Gaby's old gardener, John Rowland (Jesse Metcalfe). Gaby won't exactly be receiving her old fling with open arms, but he is back...just in time to see Gaby and Carlos deal with Edie, who has pieced together their secret. Bree's secret is looking shaky, too, now that Phyllis Van De Kamp (Shirley Knight) is onto her. And Wisteria Lane's new gay couple (Tuc Watkins, Kevin Rahm) had it rough enough last week when Susan was trying to be nice. Now they'll meet the neighborhood association. The issue at hand is their yard decorations, and some folks aren't even trying to be nice. — Paul Droesch read more

Bombshells in the 'Burbs

Episode Recap: "If There's Anything I Can't Stand"The biggest news of the episode was not the arrival of Bob and Lee — life partners (no, Susan, not business partners) who moved into the Applewhites' home. No, it was the deepening Mayfair mystery. Aunt Lily wasn't long for this world once she moved back in with them. We witnessed Katherine's quickly dissolved bedside manner when Aunt Lily expressed a deep desire to tell Dylan what "happened in this room." So, it appears Aunt Lily conspired with Katherine Mayfair to do something in that bedroom (with the gash in the wood floor) that at her life's end she deemed a mistake that shouldn't have been covered up and kept from Dylan. Sadly, Lily didn't get the chance to tell Dylan why she doesn't remember living on Wisteria Lane — or did she? Lily's final desperate act was great drama (and Bach helped): In her final wheezing moments, she scribbled something on a piece of paper at her bedside, folded it several times, and as she to... read more

Daydream Believer

I've been traveling the last week and a half from L.A. to Dallas to Atlanta and back. Still working off little sleep, I find myself daydreaming. I used to walk and talk in my sleep when I was a child. Would wake up and find myself out of my bed, down the stairs in the living room on my rocking horse, or other places. I've done it a couple of times as an adult, had conversations with friends on the phone that I don't recall and waking up in a different room. I wake up slightly disconnected for the rest of the day. Having roamed while asleep, I then dream while I'm awake. I associate travel with dreaming. Fall into a reverie on trains and planes. When I come to, I'm in another city, another time zone, and sometimes feeling that no time or space has passed at all.I was in Atlanta last Tuesday when CBS aired The Unit's double-header evening of "Sub-Conscious" and "Johnny B Good." "Sub-Conscious," written by Daniel Voll, explores the dreams of unit wife Kim Brown (played by Audrey Marie ... read more

Doris Roberts Loves Post-Raymond Life

After nine years — and four Emmy wins! — as Everybody Loves Raymond's exasperating Marie, Doris Roberts decided to mix things up a bit. She returned to the big screen in the semi-raunchy Grandma's Boy, then switched from tickling funny bones to warming hearts with the Hallmark Channel movie Our House (premiering Saturday at 9 pm/ET). Roberts spoke with about her real-life-tinged turn as a wealthy widow who opens her manse to the homeless, as well as her upcoming reunion with her TV son, Ray Romano. So after years of making everybody laugh on Eve read more
