Season 1, 2, and 3 were amazing. Absolutely addicting. Then season 4 came. Then cancer showed up. Then it became more like a soap opera than an actual fun entertaining "whodunnit" show. Such a shame. This show helped many of us escape our real lives and they ruined it by bringing real life into it. But seasons 1-3 were AWESOME. So that's why I rate season 1 FIVE stars.
I think the show was meant to be funny but only at those opportunistic moments. Other times it was meant to be the drama and many episodes showed us how 4 great actresses proved that week after week. I never imagined this show lasting 8 seasons and staying a ratings juggernaut for ABC on Sunday nights. It was a great show and accomplished many things for bringing ABC back from the doldrums to lead the ratings during many weeks and fans never seemed to get tired of the show. Monday mornin gossip
I didn't watch this when it was on tv. Back then I thought it was another stupid soap opera. But o found the whol series on netflix and was addicted by the second episode. Wish they would bring it back. The plot was great. The way the characters lives intertwined was totally awesome. This is series that you can watch over and over again because so much happens you forget big and small moments. Well worth it.
