New show on Lifetime, starring that girl from season two of Heroes who would cry black liquid and it killed people, Carla from Scrubs, Graham from My So-Called Life, Butthair/Jason from Pretty Little Liars and some other people who look sort of familiar. It's a murder mystery that shockingly, revolves around the lives of a group of maids!

I watched the pilot on hulu and I liked it. I like a good who-the-fuck-dunnit. But now i'm worried that Lifetime only put the pilot on hulu and I will never get to watch another episode.

God dammit, I knew I was going to be the only person to watch a show with a title like 'Devious Maids'.

haha. So, Jason has plans almost every night this week without me, so I may get bored enough for this!

Honestly I just can't with that title. If they'd called it anything else I might give it a shot, but Devious Maids? Nope.

I'll be watching this too, MBM ;)

I don't mind the title... unless there's something I'm not getting? But it does give off a different vibe to the actual pilot. I thought it might be more of a comedy but it's not. I also think it has potential, it just needs a few more eps.

Also, yay for Judy (Carla) being back on tv!

The name just isn't very good, I think it's supposed to be a play on Desperate Housewives?

I am so weirded out that Graham is a creeper in this show. Also I will never learn the character's actual name because he is Graham Chase.

Yeah, I just hate the name... I don't know why. It strikes me as self-explanatory to the point of being ridiculous, like muthaforkin' cakes on a plate, except not funny.

I am glad Ana Ortiz is back on tv, though, I loved her on Ugly Betty.

That is one of the people who looked familiar and I couldn't place her!

I think the title is off anyway, so far the maids don't seem very devious. They're not like, Fairuza Balk/Neve Campbell in The Craft after they get their powers or anything. Someone dies before the opening credits and we're trying to find out who killed her and why.

I thought this was thought provoking. Haven't seen any of the show, though:

Well. I don't know if there's any way for me to say that I hadn't even thought of it being a big, fat stereotype without sounding like a privileged douchenozzle. So.

watching the pilot now. i heart judy reyes and ana ortiz, so i wanted to give it a shot anyway, and once i saw some ppk interest i threw it on the DVR.

first thought of any substance: i really hate this stupid font they keep scrawling all over the screen.

That article was really well done, and I thought about it/commented on it to my bf when we watched the pilot.

I thought the same thing and that article above says Eva is involved so now I'm not surprised at the name choice. It's totes misleading, it seems like the employers are the devious ones - unless the maids start screwing with their lives to get revenge on their dead friend.

It may also be a play on The Maids by Jean Genet about homicidal domestics.

I love Judy Reyes. I'd watch her in anything. Just saw her in the Sopranos where she played Paulie's compare.

I am, but my interest is waning. Susan Lucci is a cartoon and not really in a good way, and I already don't care who killed whats-her-face.

Really? I'm liking this show. It's a great guilty pleasure, fun soapy show for me. Plus it has so many actors/actresses that I like in it.

BD - I think you should! I caught up by watching eps 2-7 in a row and it hooked me in.

I spied Charlotte from The Lying Game in one of the later eps.

i'm on my fourth episode of the day, having a catch-up marathon. i think i like it the same way i liked desperate housewives... enough to keep watching, but not enough to stop multi-tasking when it's on. judy reyes is woefully underused, but she has great delivery as always.

Some of the acting is so cartoonish though, like Susan Lucci. I know she's a soap opera actor but i'm pretty sure that's how the character is written. I watch it while interneting and I feel the same way, like it's not engaging enough to need my full attention.

I love the idea of butthair being the killer though. Possibly while he was high on a cloud of blow.

anyone still watching this? i got kind of sucked in toward the end of last season, so i went ahead and recorded again this season. i've watched all six or whatever episodes thus far in the past week or so, and it's still entertaining enough for me to hang onto it. plus, more zoila! yay!

I kind of hate the big story arch, which is whoever actually shot that dude getting caught I assume, and I only like a handful of the characters, but it's still okay for a summer filler show. I like the Powells, Rosie, Judy Reyes, Susan Lucci, and everyone else is just kinda meh.
