'Desperate Housewives': New season-3 promo

Posted on

Maybe I’m thick, but can someone please tell me which metaphor ABC is getting at in this clip promoting the forthcoming third season of Desperate Housewives? Is it about airing dirty laundry? Or just that, after season 2 proved to be such a wash, this show’s future is on the line? As Adweek’s AdFreak blog points out, this clip is modest and circumspect compared to last year’s promo, which promised more than the season could deliver.

I like it except for two things: 1) Eva Longoria’s new blond tresses; this could be as disastrous a decision as Keri Russell’s haircut in season 2 of Felicity and 2) that ugly cover of ”You Really Got Me” is almost bad enough to make me forget how Zayra butchered the song twice (twice!) last month on Rock Star: Supernova. Could everyone please stop beating up on the Kinks? What did they ever do to you?
