    "Desire" is (I can't believe I'm saying this) good. Compelling. Stupid. Well-acted. Not terribly written. Funny on purpose. Better than most series on TV.
  2. 50
    The writing is so bad that, I promise, you will sit there mouth agape.
  3. The better of the first pair [of soaps].
  4. 25
    In terms of intelligence, wit and quality, "Desire" is a serious cut below most prime time drama series.
  5. Reviewed by: Brian Lowry

    Somewhat more ambitious [than "Fashion House"] but equally hackneyed.
  6. "Desire" is so cheesy that the restaurant ought to specialize in fondue.
  7. "Desire" will make you ashamed -- of society at large, if not yourself --whether you like it (chances: minimal) or not (chances: off the charts).
