As you can see it's exactly the same as the original Desperate Housewives, right down to the music - which I'm not mad about because I don't like remakes. I've tried a few but I've never stuck with them because I don't see the point in watching a story I already know.

I always assume the point of remakes is that they aren't for people who've already seen a show but for those who haven't. Do you feel the same? If you watched the original will you watch again?

Here's an intro. to the leading cast:
