Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Despite criticism that Season 2 of Desperate Housewives took too long to establish story arcs -- and that the housewives themselves barely interacted for most of the season -- fans had their patience rewarded with some dazzling, soapy drama. Bree Marcia Cross had it hardest this year as she discovers that her boyfriend a suicide victim had murdered her husband, Rex Steven Culp, a revelation that drives her to drink. That leads her to Alcoholics Anonymous, and a new boyfriend, Peter Oz's Lee Tergesen. Alas, Bree's teen son, Andrew Shawn Pyfrom, seduces Peter, so as to disgrace Bree and win emancipation from her -- in order to get his hands on his trust fund. Susan Teri Hatcher has her own relationship issues involving ex-husband Karl Richard Burgi, hunky next-door neighbor Mike James Denton, and Karl's new girlfriend, fellow housewife Edie Nicollette Sheridan, who burns down Susan's house. Gabrielle Eva Longoria wants a baby this season and will do anything to get it, including allowing her maid to be artificially inseminated with her husband, Carlos's Ricardo Chavira, sperm. Lynette Felicity Huffman and Tom Doug Savant face financial difficulties, forcing Lynette to return to work at her husband's company. Eventually, their boss decides to fire Tom after revealing to Lynette suspicious business trips he took to Atlantic City. By the end of the season we learn that Tom actually has another daughter, and that her mother has moved to Wisteria Lane to be closer to Tom. Finally, Alfre Woodard received an Emmy nomination for her role as mysterious neighbor Betty Applewhite, who keeps her one son chained up in the basement because he allegedly murdered his brother's girlfriend. The wild and wacky happenings on Wisteria Lane kept Housewives at the top of the ratings charts, as Season 2 placed fourth overall among the season's most-watched TV shows. Dubbed "Extra Juicy" on DVD, the nine-disc Season 2 set arrives with unaired story lines, deleted scenes, and featurettes with series creator Marc Cherry.

    I Also Recommend:

    Pretty great!

    Season 2 was a great continuation of the series-- making it energetic and very professional. It is not by far my favorite season yet but it isn't the worst. There are normally a good pick of bad episodes but they were pretty low key in this series. I recommend it very strongly for anyone that is stuck into the pop culture phase right now.
    ---------
    As for the set-up of the box set I am not a fan. I suggest getting the newly updated one where the removal of the disks are much easier. In the original box set you are unable to remove the disk behind without taking the first disk out. It is quite a handful to get them out without breaking them too.

    Marcia Cross should have won an Emmy for this season.

    How upsetting is that this show and Marcia Cross was unfairly snubbed from the Emmys for this season. Marcia Cross was fantastic this season, her character Bree Van De Kamp was suffering from her husband's death, dealing with a psychotic boyfriend, battling alcoholism, fighting with her homosexual son, and much more. The storylines of the other housewives are deliciously twisted and of course, exciting!!!! The season finale is a must watch!!

    I Love It

    I'm only on disc 3 of season 2 and its amazing. I cant believe what happens in this season. So many people are backstabbing others and I wouldn't have realized that so many people where capable of doing this. Anyone who doesn't watch this show are missing out. And if you haven't watched it please don't judge other people who do.

    What's not to love?!

    Those who do not enjoy the brilliance of Marc Cherry's fully-rounded characters and superb plot-line must not be able to relate. True "desperate housewives" find comfort in knowing they aren't alone(however embellished it may be). AMAZING SEASON! Can't wait for the 3rd!
