    Entertaining! Hilarious! Great!

    Although Desperate Housewives piloted many years ago, I never had the occasion to watch an episode until I was stuck in front of a television at the beauty salon. I was so captivated that I decided to buy the first season and start watching it through up to the most current season.

    I've only watched the first four episodes, but what fun! I normally watch true crime shows, and this is such a breath of fresh, adult air!

    Love it! Absolutely love it! Me time. Doesn't get any better than that! I finally see what everyone was raving about.

    You have to see it to believe it.

    I am the biggest desperate housewives fan in the entire world. I started watching it by chance during season 2, and I have not stopped, when season 1 came out on dvd I got it for christmas, and I have been keeping up with whats going on on wisteria lane every since. Marc Cherry is a pure genious. The characters are amazing, and it is something interesting going on behind every door on that street. I will recommend desperate housewives to anyone. If you enjoy fear, comedy, and just plain drama like myself, you need to get the series and start at the beginning.

    Guaranteed Satisfaction!!

    If you love comedy and drama soap operas you will not want to miss the TV series Desperate Housewives. It tells the story of Mary Alice Young , a seemingly perfect housewife who commits suicide because she feared a secret, involving her, her husband, and their son would be exposed. Other characters are Susan Mayer, Lynette Scavo, Bree Van de Kamp, and Gabrielle Solis. Mary Alice describes how her friends try to find out the reason for her suicide, while trying to deal with personal problems in their lives. Susan Mayer, the klutzy, lovable divorced mother in search of love. Lynette Scavo is a full time mother of four. Bree Van de Kamp is the uptight perfectionist homemaker and the mother of two teenagers and is struggling to save her marriage. Gabrielle Solis is the materialistic ex fashion model who cheats on her husband. As you can see there is never a dull moment on this show, the problems these women experience everyday will tap into one of your emotions and that is why I like this show. From the beginning of the show to the end I was interested and I was dying to see more. The audience for this show is mature adults. Some people may think only women watch this show but many males have taken an interest in this show. The show is not like the older soap operas that were feminine and always told a love story. This show is so much more, it is comedy, drama and passion all intertwined together to give us one of the best TV series of the 21st Century. The genre of this show is to entertain. The show reaches out to the audience's emotions because at times the show was hilarious but there were not always happy times, sometimes it was sad or frustrating. Producer Marc Cherry, created these stories with the audience in mind, he wanted to create something people will actually enjoy watching. I recommend that you watch at least the first season of the show. I was humored, sad, and sometimes frustrated by the series but overall my attention was kept. This show guarantees satisfaction and you will not regret buying this TV series.

    An awesome performance!

    This show really shocked me! The housewives weren't desperate for what I thought! Mysteries, murders, and love interests persue in this perfectly wound plot, mixed with an awsome ensemble!

    A sinful pleasure

    Although targetted to women at first, the show gained popularity with a wide male audience,both straight and gay. The cast is top notch and all the characters resemble someone that we all know in our own private Wisteria Lanes. Who does not have the nosy neighbor? The soccer mom or the go getter? And is there not the sexy mom or newcomer that everyone talks about? And who does not know someone hiding a long held secret? The show is amusing, dark, and hooks you from the first, with the mystery of why one of the ladies killed herself, when her life appeared perfect. The chemistry amongst the characters and the quirky writing made for an entertaining tv season. Let's hope the second time around is as good as the first!
