The one show my husband watches with me!
Verified purchase
What I love most about Desperate Housewives is that every season gets better. Season 4 does not disappoint in the least!

My husband refuses to watch most television shows because they simply don't keep his interest. This show has him wandering into whatever room I'm watching it in and sitting down with me, asking questions about the plots and really getting into the story lines. It blows me away, especially since the longest time ago he used to criticize me for wanting to watch a show titled "Desperate Housewives."

Marcia Cross (Bree), to me, stole the show this season. Her quips and slyness always leave me rolling with laughter. She has a certain level of polish all her own, and she only gets more amazing with every show.

This cast is one of the most synergistic I've ever seen yet. I watch all of the bonus material that comes with the DVDs and it's wonderful to see how much they enjoy working together. Hooray for Desperate Housewives!

Verified purchase
Essentially a black comedy with soap opera pacing . All superb actors , acting superbly .
Greatest is Dana Delaney , such extraordinary theatrical dynamics .
Can some non spoiler explain HOW Kathryns biological daughter was killed ?
Is it in the deleted scenes ?
Thanks .

Personal Favorite Season thus far
Verified purchase
Maybe season one is the best yet, but my personal favorite is season four, since it introduced who would become my favorite housewife.

Season four opens with the aftermath of season three's season finale story arcs. Susan and Mike just got married, Bree is pretending to be pregnant to cover-up Danielle's pregnancy, Lynette discovered she has cancer and Gaby married Victor, oh yeah, and Edie's intent of suicide.

But also on season four's premiere an old neighbor moves back to Wisteria Lane, she used to live there 12 years ago back when only Susan, Mary Alice and Mrs. Mccluskey lived there, her name is Katherine Mayfair, previously known as Katherine Davis. Katherine moves back to Wisteria Lane with her now teenage daughter Dylan and new husband Adam Mayfair (Nathan Fillion) The Mayfairs are this season's "mystery", that involves sexual harassment a daughter that can't remember anything regarding her childhood and a possible murder.

Still Crazy After All These Years
Verified purchase
I collect this series on Dvd rather than watch each episode on tv. This gives the story much more continuity and helps keep the story fresh in your mind.
I find this series to be so well written, blending comedy with mystery and intrigue, that you find yourself laughing at the one liners as much as guessing at the series subplots. The fourth season doesn't disappoint. It maintains the high quality of story line and dialogue that has made this series a winner for a long time. New characters and story lines are seemlessly introduced and absorbed into the Wysteria hysteria with a blend of mystery, seasoned with a dash of humor. There's always a synister mystery brewing under the madcap lives of these truely desperate, but lovable women. It reminds me a little of Twin Peaks, the way the writers juggles mystery and absurdity with ribbons of out-loud laughs stirred in for a tasty recipe for sucessful television.
If you already are a fan, season 4 does not fail to deliver. If only movie sequels would be this consistantly good.

Best Season Yet!!!
Verified purchase
I can see that most of the complaints here are regarding the price considering the shorter season & I can understand that. However, considering the price for this in other stores amazon.com always seems to ahve the best prices. Which is why I frequently shop here for the lower prices & free shipping on top of that(shipping is also quite fast even with the free super saver shipping). You can't beat that! Now as for this season of Desperate Housewives I honestly think it is the best season yet. Even though I have loved all the seasons this one is funnier, more emotional, better drama, & the mystery story is quite intrigueing as well. I love all the characters & the quirkiness they all bring to the show. We couldn't do without any of them & I hope they continue to make many more seasons of the show. It just keeps getting better!

guilty pleasure
Verified purchase
Love this show. Slowly, I am building up to collecting all of the seasons. This was well packaged and I have no complaints. Arrived even faster than expected and the discs themselves are in immaculate condition and play with no issues. Such a fun guilty pleasure to watch after the kids go to bed at night.
