Desperate Housewives
First off, Joely Fisher needs to go. I get that she's supposed to be the boss from hell, but come on. She's Cruella De Ville with a boob job and a better benefits package. And Lynette darting from staff meeting to computer screen to video IM with her kid? Nope. Not buying it, even on sale. And apparently a lot of

you didn't buy Betty's therapy chat last week, either, and you're all probably right. Maybe she was spilling her guts to get those sedatives. That doesn't mean the dude who made such a mess of breakfast isn't still her hubby. Especially with that "I've had my share of family knockdown, drag-outs" comment. The family I would like to knock down and drag out to counseling is the Myers clan. Between Susan ambushing Edie and Julie's church talent-show act, her patently humiliating scene at said event and Karl's affinity for emotionally crippled women, none of these people should be allowed to play together. Nor should Bree and George, so let's hope that she sees through those flying colors on his polygraph test and realizes that her lab-coated crush is a superfreak of murderous proportions. If he needs to take out the mother-in-law to open her eyes, so be it. Which brings us to Gaby and Carlos. Guess what? Loving them. Best scenes of the night, right down to Eva Longoria trotting out the soap-trained tears for her big apology. Totally worth pausing my marathon screening of the Veronica Mars Season 1 DVDs. But now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get back. It turns out there was an even better mystery last year than Mary Alice's suicide. How come none of you told me, huh? Damian J. Holbrook

Grey's Anatomy
Another episode that made you think of your parents. Last week it was "Would you save your alcoholic father by giving him your liver even though he continually beat up your mother?" Tonight it was "Would you rather have your mother die a fairly quick death due to liver cancer, or die a much slower way while not recognizing you due to Alzheimer's disease?" I guess I don't blame Meredith for being disappointed when she found out her mother's cancer was benign rather than malignant. I can't imagine going through life if my mom didn't know who I was. A friend of mine is going through just that, and she's told me how difficult it's been, so if any of you are in the same boat, my thoughts are with you. Kate Burton does a phenomenal job as Ellis Grey, but I feel rather old every time I see her. I remember when I was a child that the leading man and woman of Hollywood were Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Then I remember reading that Richard's teenage daughter, Kate (from a previous marriage), was an up-and-coming actress. Now look at her: She's playing someone's ailing mother. So yes, I feel old. Elsewhere, what a way for Burke finally to find out Cristina was pregnant after she lost the baby. You could tell how much he cares for Cristina when Dr. Webber needed Burke to assist him so he couldn't get to her. And I'm glad Meredith finally came to her senses and forgave Derek loved her "Hating you is the most exhausting I don't want to do it anymore" speech as she kissed him.  Nice timing right after Addison kissed him and he surprisingly allowed it. Oooh Soap Opera with a capital S and O!   Dave Anderson
