4.0 out of 5 stars The Final Act: Kiss Them Goodbye May 16, 2012
(Spoiler Alert)

On October 3, 2004, one of America's favorite TV series, "Desperate Housewives," was well received from viewers and critics alike, attracting over thirty million viewers in the first season's finale.

And now, eight years later, the soapy, sexy, fan-favorite show in the fictional town of Fairview is saying its final goodbyes. To mark the end of an era, a lump-in-the-throat final episode, "Finishing the Hat," was broadcast on May 13, 2012 to a bittersweet farewell. Whether or not you watched every episode from start to finish, a sense of melancholy will be felt, especially from diehard fans who watched religiously every Sunday night to see what would happen to those zany housewives on Wisteria Lane: Teri Hatcher (Susan Mayer), Felicity Huffman (Lynette Scavo), Marcia Cross (Bree Van De Camp), and Eva Longoria (Gabrielle Solis).

The final season is not without a few loose ends--and sloppy storylines. Although entertaining, some might say that the eighth season--maybe even the sixth and seventh season as well--was written too hastily, mainly by show's producer/writer, Marc Cherry.

It seems to many Desperate Housewives aficionados that Marc Cherry did not know what to do with most of his cast for the last few years (beginning with season six). So, in retrospect, at least to him, it made sense to send some of the characters packing. In season five, Edie Britt (Nicolette Sheridan) drove into a telephone pole and, head-on, met her maker. And now, one of the most likable male characters in the series, the most levelheaded of all the men, falls prey to a gunshot. Mike Delfino's (James Denton) death is dramatic, as he dies, in slow motion, in the arms of his klutzy, hopeless romantic wife, Susan Mayer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Farewell Wisteria Lane May 13, 2012
Series Finale: May 13, 2012

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, Wonderful May 16, 2012
When ABC and creator/executive producer Marc Cherry announced during the summer of 2011 that the upcoming eighth season of "Desperate Housewives" would be its last, it probably came as little surprise for a series that was showing its age quite a bit. When it premiered in the fall of 2004, "Housewives," along with its fellow freshman series "Lost" were the breakout hits of the 2004-2005 television season and gave new ratings vitality to the ABC network. Since then, "Desperate Housewives" had lost favor with critics following its well-publicized and messy sophomore slump. Viewers also gradually declined each season after the first year as the Sunday night landscape became crowded by the likes of "Sunday Night Football," "Family Guy," "The Walking Dead," and "Dexter," and TV viewership as a whole dropped with the rise of DVRs and online viewing. Still, "Desperate Housewives" continued to be an important player on Sundays and the fact that "Housewives" had kept its 9 p.m. timeslot for the entirety of its 8-year run shows the level of confidence ABC had in it. Furthermore, "Housewives" still held onto a very dedicated (although much smaller than the highs reached in season 1) fanbase that continued to tune in every Sunday for their weekly dose of soap opera, wit, and popcorn crime drama that "Desperate Housewives" was known for.

The fact that "Desperate Housewives" was a declining show on the outside said very little about it creatively, as those who stuck around after the second season would realize that for much of its eight years, the show had been remarkably steady.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice ending to a deliciously sinful series August 12, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I desperately miss the ladies on Wisteria Lane and there is no better sendoff then the final season. All of the storylines were wrapped up beautifully and the series is as vivid on blu-ray as it was on network TV (even more so)

My absolutely favorite series of all time. My only complaint is that I expected more closure on the switched-at-birth story. That's a disappointment. Otherwise hilarious and fun.

Hey there,
