The best moments ranking
It's finally so far. Desperate Housewives is over and all of you chose the best moments this series had.
Let's all take a look back, remember those moments and say a last goodbye to Wisteria Lane.
We will start with the one you voted to #20.
#20 Mary Alice shoots herself
Who doesn't know it? The scene that not only introduced us to Desperate Housewives but also lead to all upcoming mysteries and events. It was the first shocking twist this show had - and it was only on air for two minutes.
This scene would soon become iconic and known by nearly everyone.
Everything about it was fresh, new and funny. Mary Alice telling the story of her life and friends, Martha Huber - the curious dramatic neighbour and the shot.
The pilot itself was pure perfection and this won't be its last scene on this ranking.
One hell of a scene. Mike finds out Susan has met Zach but didn't tell him. Instead she gave him money and food to live on his own in order to protect her daughter Julie.
He's mad at her for lying about his own son and leaves her.
Teri Hatcher's acting in this scene is flawless and it's one of the few highlights the second season has had!
It was a fascinating introduction to the show and right away defines its satirical tone with Hubert being shocked at Mary Alice's death but happy to keep the blender, which is the whole point blending comedy and drama!
It's so easy to laugh
It's so easy to hate
It takes strength to be gentle and kind.
Mary Alice killing herself set the tone for the entire series run.I wish she'd been featured more in the series though, instead of doing voice overs only..
I remember the Susan scene too, running through Wisteria lane with a wedding dress and Mike driving off? Priceless.
