Ah "Desperate Housewives". The time has finally come to an end. Now what I am going to do on Sunday nights? This show has managed to keep me entertained now for eight seasons with enough twist, turns, and drama to make me dizzy.
I enjoyed this season. I feel that the series "went out" while it still had a good, solid fan base. Even though this was the last season it was NOT short on Mystery, humor, and the ever present drama that we all love. The finale showed exactly what I wanted to see, which was how the writers were going to conclude the story-lines of the four main characters: Susan, Lynette, Bree and Gaby and I was not disappointed.
As much as I enjoyed this show, all good things must come to an end sadly, this was "Desperate Housewives" time. Wisteria Lane will live on now through DVD'S.
amazon doesn't allow us to give half stars but that is what the grade should be, 3.5 stars.
well, i'd watched DH all along so couldn't say no to watching its final season, to see how everyone ended up. i wish i had been able to stop at edie's death, when the show finished being first rate, but i was weak. i can't imagine why you would want to see this season if you hadn't seen the prior seven seasons. it will make no sense if you attempt to do so. so i assume everyone is like me, hanging in there to see how it turns out. if you decide to satisfy your curiousity, watching it here on amazon instant viewing is a pretty easy way to take in the resolution. some of the highlights are as follows.
lynette and tom are still separated. tom is dating a new woman and the issue becomes whether he will make a life with her or go back to lynette. susan faces the biggest life changes of all. incredibly, she and julie come together in shared goals. carlos and gabby have to struggle with some drinking problems and career changes. plus gabby's past surfaces with a vengenance. but they stilll remain a very strong couple. bree finds herself fighting a murder charge and love looms large for her via her criminal defense lawyer. her second husband orson also reappears in her life again for awhile, still the same creep he's always been.
i guess the major thing that went AWOL was the smart, snappy writing in this show. as the writing went down to soap opera level, you had to take it or leave it at that level. it may be DH's weakest season, but if you want to see how it all turns out for them, this is the season which resolves all issues.
In this last season, you get the same story arc as before, with each character going through his or her own personal adventures while interweaving his or her path with the others. Lines are crossed, wars are declared, treasons become necessary, Hearts and lives are broken, secrets are revealed and, ultimately, peace and joy prevail. A central idea dominates the entire season while several other little mysteries are being solved.Read more ›

|Desperate Housewives Season 8 Release?||
it's not true that the season finale is on april 1st, the 23. episode is aired in may 13.
It is also not true that the full season dvd is released right after the last episode... For example:
- Season 7 ended in May 15, 2011 and the DVD was released in August 30, 2011.
