    The actresses do a good job, too. It’s just a shame they have to do it in a largely dull, predictable show where it’s impossible for them to shine, no matter how hard they clean and scrub.

    It would be great to report here that Devious Maids is not that bad, except that it is, despite a lot of real talent on-screen.

    Best part of the pilot "Mrs. Westmore! The baby just said his first word!" "What did he say?" "He called me mama!" This show took time to introduce all the characters, but I think we'll see lots of drama later on in the show. People are probably going to go compare this to Desperate Housewives, so I'll tell you right now, I enjoyed Desperate Housewives much more, but this is a show to keep your eyes on for sure.

    The actresses look professional. The storyline was good. My main concern is that it lost the charm desperate housewives had. Cherry really didn't build up a climax, but the ending did it for me. the first half of the pilot was okay. the second half was extraordinary and that's the Marc Cherry I know. looking forward to it and I hope to see some plot twists and engaging storyline that will keep us tuned in!

    I was ABSOLUTELLY thrilled about the characters and how they were going to manage all the stuff that was happening on the houses they were working. It's amazing how the writers can make you feel things about EVERY single character, and the one you hated the most maybe it's going to turn in your beloved. I just can't describe this series in one word, but I can try with 'realistic'. The series shows how the fathers make everything they can do for their children and I thinks it's a good way to start and ending the series. And I just have good words for the actors and actresses that appears in the serie. Just awesome, specially the acting of the main four maids. Good job! Just waiting for the second season.
