影片对白  So, how's domestic life? Don't you just love being a mom?  

文化面面观  童话公主vs绝望主妇

思想火花

《绝望主妇》的宣传语是“每个人都有一个肮脏的小秘密(Everyone has a little dirty laundry)”。故事以家庭主妇Mary Alice Young的自杀作为开场。早上在送走了丈夫和孩子,做好了早餐,买了衣服,作了自己例行公事的家庭杂务后,Mary Alice Young拿出了一把左轮手枪……从此以后她作为小镇的观察者,对所有人的行为冷眼旁观。她用自己独特的视角和见解与我们分享这些主妇们的绝望生活。

Looking down on her friends and family isn't a way of life for Mary Alice Young (Brenda Strong), it's a way of death. One day, in her perfect house, in the loveliest of suburbs, Mary Alice ended it all. Now she's taking us into the lives of her family, friends and neighbors, commenting from her elevated P.O.V.

Her small circle of girlfriends are wondering why one of their own would do something so rash and so messy. There's Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher), the divorcee and single mom who will go to extraordinary lengths for love; Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman), the ex-career woman who traded the boardroom for boredom, mixed with moments of sheer panic as the mother of four unmanageable kids; Bree Van De Kamp (Marcia Cross), the Martha Stewart on steroids, whose family is about to mutiny; and Gabrielle Solis, the ex-model with everything she's every wanted, a rich husband, a big house, so what is she doing with John, the 17-year-old gardener (Jesse Metcalfe)?

From her unique vantage point, Mary Alice sees more now than she ever did alive, and she's planning to share all the delicious secrets that hide behind every neighbor's closed door in this seemingly perfect American suburb.
