CHECKING OUT! Desperate Housewives, Channel 4, 10.00pm You’ll have to forgive us if we seem a little weepy when writing this entry, but our TV viewing week just won’t be the same without our regular visit to Wisteria Lane, as Desperate Housewives comes to a close tonight. However, Channel 4 have decided that they can ease the blow by giving us a double-bill to end the series – nice try, guys. Hey, we’ll take what we can get. In the meantime, there are a lot of loose ends to tie up, so prepare for timely (if not tidy) resolutions to the following: Gabby’s affair with gardener John, Lynette’s frustration with Tom being forever at work and never around to help with the child-rearing, the on-again-off-again-on-again-who-really-knows Mike/Susan relationship, and the truth about Zach/Dana’s parentage and the whereabouts of Deirdre. Of course, we’re going to need a few cliffhangers, so prepare for an untimely departure, a new neighbour, and an armed siege. The property prices round there must be plummeting.

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses.
We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
