Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says itís happening again. This time to ABCís ďDesperate Housewives.Ē
The series is scheduled to wind up in May, ending an eight-season run. But Sokolsky says itís really been six. At least, they ran out of material after six.
The result has been a recycling of scripts with Susan doing Breeís role, Bree doing Gaby, etc.
Sokolsky calls that an old gimmick that probably started during the radio soap opera era. Or, he adds, it may have even been pioneered by the old comic strips that found heroes like Liíl Abner having the same adventure every year.
