The Desperate Housewives flap

Uh-oh, looks like the Philippine Defense Squad dot Com is whipping itself up in a frenzy again, this time over a remark by Teri Hatcher's character in a Desperate Housewives episode.

Before the emails and blog posts really start flying, it's helpful to look at the issue in view of past patterns. Will a simple apology suffice, or do we want to take this to the logical and ultimate conclusion that we so often demand? Which is, of course...

...to fire Teri Hatcher

...to fire the writers of Desperate Housewives

...to take Desperate Housewives off the air entirely, including both local free TV and cable TV

...to erase all trace of Desperate Housewives from the Philippines, including bootleg DVDs

...to swear to never ever watch the comings and goings at Wisteria Lane or even discuss it ever again

O ano, mga DH wannabees? Kaya ninyo?
