  1. The better of the first pair [of soaps].
  2. "Desire" features better production values than a daytime soap, but just as wooden acting by its no-name cast and terrible dialogue.
  3. 25
    There are desires that are best left unfulfilled.
  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. "Dynasty" plays like Tennessee Williams in comparison.
  8. Reviewed by: Diane Werts

    Viewers are expected to swallow - worse, to savor - simplistic recycling of melodrama plots seen a hundred times before.
  9. "Desire" will make you ashamed -- of society at large, if not yourself --whether you like it (chances: minimal) or not (chances: off the charts).

    this is a combination of terrible acting mixed with horrible writing. The only reason to watch this show would be for unintentional comedy. this is a combination of terrible acting mixed with horrible writing.
