I have to admit, I liked this show even though it reminded me of desperate housewives which I ultimately despised. The series follows the lives of 4 Latino maids, each one of them works for a rich employee in Beverly hills, usually a celebrity or some sort of social persona. But polishing and sucking up to their bosses isnt the only thing these maids have to deal with from day to day bases. They all have secrets, schemes and hidden agendas. There are many twists and turns that the viewer gets exposed to which are believable and adds more flavor to the show.
At first I was skeptical, cause I thought the writers and the producers would go for the classic (poor and kind vs. rich and evil) concept especially when it comes to the nature of the relationship between the maids and their bosses. I was afraid we would get the b""Chy employer who's impossible to deal with and the saint employer the cinderella story anyone? But that's not the case entirely which makes the series divert and fresh. We get the classic Cinderella case with some characters but the maids although partial victims are also not so innocent and have their own personal plans and tricks up their sleeves. I really liked that for a change.
This is much like desperate housewives in that not everything is what it might seem to be in happy luxerious beverly hills and ironically the pilot episodes opens up with a maid's mysterious murder. And slowly by slowly the truth unfolds. The producer here challenges the same idea he did previously with desperate housewives. Perfect things aren't perfect, sometimes we have to dig deeper to get the truth, superficial happiness etc.. It's basically the same moral the same sub plot line? But I liked this version better for some unknown reason it just appeals to me.
Give it a try, you might like it. I know fans of desperate housewives will have a better chance of liking the show but im not a fan and so far so good. I just hope it continues improving and the following episodes does not disappoint. Finger crossed!
