Product Description

When things get rough on Wisteria Lane, the Housewives band together like never before. Relive the passion, the laughter, and the mystery of television’s celebrated dramatic comedy with The Complete Sixth Season of Desperate Housewives.

The neighborhood is jolted with the arrival of Angie Bolen (Drea de Matteo) and her family, and it soon becomes clear that they are hiding something. But what is their secret, and what are their true intentions? Meanwhile, a plane crash on Wisteria Lane causes everyone to reflect on their lives and the choices that have made them who they are.

Experience every juicy episode, and get inside access to your favorite show with never-before-seen bonus features. Find out more on DVD with this spectacular 5-disc set. It’s the perfect addition to your Desperate Housewives collection!


The lives, loves, loyalty, treachery, and deceit of the women of Wisteria Lane have become part of a fairly large subculture of American pop-culture vernacular thanks to the continued success of Desperate Housewives. Season six has not been considered one of the standouts in the long lifespan of the series, but it's certainly not the least inspired (that honor is generally placed on the sophomore slump of season two). Creator Marc Cherry has said he sees many more years of backbiting and lip locking in store for fans and the very happy ABC Network. He'll be following through on that promise at least through an eighth season. All that said, Desperate Housewives enjoys a very specific following of viewers who are anything but casual. Admirers consider it either a guilty pleasure that they're somewhat ashamed to admit or a piece of must-see TV for which their Sunday nights remain reserved along with empty shelf space for the coming DVD sets, no matter how many more there will be.

Even after so many years of following the same basic formulas, Cherry & Co. have managed to keep the story arcs relatively fresh with the trademark blend of camp, sharp humor, and cutting drama that's not so real to be a total bringdown, even when it involves insolvency, death, disease, and disfigurement. Season six has all those familiar elements, thankfully propelled forward by the original core cast of Teri Hatcher (Susan), Felicity Huffman (Lynette), Marcia Cross (Bree), and Eva Longoria-Parker (Gabrielle). Dana Delany, who joined the cast in season three, makes her final appearance here in six as Katherine, who provides one of the more titillating story lines of desperation as the episodes progress and her mental state deteriorates (thanks to the predatory actions of Susan). But the four core housewives still seem to be in it for the long haul. Lynette is aghast at the prospect of her later-life pregnancy (with twins!), not to mention a close encounter with a friendly neighborhood serial murderer. Bree goes through a welter of guilt and exasperation over her husband Orson's snickeringly horrible disability (Kyle MacLachlan again adds a welcome dose of pungent wit to his turn as the disgruntled Orson), and Susan discovers her daughter may not be such a prodigy after all. Gabrielle is exasperated over her motherly duties, especially remembering what life used to be like when she hangs out with the super-fun gay couple down the street. The newest housewife on Wisteria Lane is Angie (Drea de Matteo, bringing lingering remnants of her role as Adrianna on The Sopranos), who also adds a dangerous mystery to the seasonal arc. Like all the other stretchy narrative threads, it has well-intoned elements of both menace and outrageous farce. As a package deal, season six keeps pulsing with the Desperate Housewives ethos, which is still defined by the clever device of a long-dead narrator (Brenda Strong as Mary Alice) commenting on the behind-closed-doors doings from beyond the grave.

The special features included on the DVD set are slimmed down compared to other seasons' offerings. There's the obligatory blooper/gag reel, what's billed as a "Master Class" series of interviews with the stars explaining how hard they work to make the sometimes credibility-straining plot threads come to life, and a nice collection of Marc Cherry's favorite scenes, which really do showcase what's best about each element of the show. A silly segment titled "Miss Piggy Gets Desperate" follows the Muppet diva onto the set for her own round of interviews, which eventually belie her true motive--to win a role as the latest inhabitant of Wisteria Lane. It's silly, but funny and smart, which is a pretty good way to describe the lasting fun of Desperate Housewives. --Ted Fry

Format: DVD
Make no mistake: this show is basically a glorified soap opera, with much better acting and plots. However, it is pretty funny. The plots get so off the wall sometimes that it becomes hilarious. Each season has a separate story arch that usually involves a murder or somebody's deep, dark secret. Each episode also features a unique story and many plot twists. Things get pretty zany after several seasons. Over the past 5 years, it has included many (many) extramarital affairs, murders, holdups, hurricanes, gang lords, and dead bodies in the freezer.

This season has been pretty good so far. Angie and Danny as the new family on the block are good additions to the show. Angie in particular adds a lot of spunk. Unfortunately, it hasn't really developed the theme or subplot as strongly as some past seasons. It's only now that the backstory to Danny is becoming revealed. Also, the whole plane crash thing was kind of silly. However, a lot of the episodes were funny, especially the whole Russian gold-digger.

I was very disappointed with the cheap paper sleeve and cheap thin case the DVDs came in. Season 6 looks so crappy next to season 1-5 on my shelf. I like the big boxes and plastic sleeves that the seasons were previously packaged in, well season 5 did have a paper sleeve, but it was still ALOT nicer that season 6's packaging. Someones getting cheap. :( Other than that I love Desperate Housewives, its hands-down the best series on TV.

Format: DVD
Desperate Housewives continued on its downward spiral during this sixth season. Ratings dwindled and the writers made the same mistakes during seasons two and three. The show became about six different shows, with the housewives living in their isolated plot lines. Rarely did two housewives overlap story-wise, or even cross paths for that matter. The special bond these women share was sorely missed this season. What's perhaps more upsetting is the way the season's central mystery, Angie Bolen and her family, was treated. Since season four, the mysteries have been easily solved by viewers within the first few episodes. Season six was different, but not because it was as complex as earlier mysteries, but because we were left completely in the dark. For the entire first half of the season, not one clue about this family was revealed. Instead, we were distracted with a sub-mystery about a serial strangler. (Though it appeared the two were connected, they weren't.) Then, by the middle of the season, it was clear that Angie was a terrorist and was on the run from a man named Patrick Logan. Bam, mystery solved (save for a few minor details) with half a season to go! And, I might mention, in that second half of the season, the show's darkness is consumed by sitcom-esque comedy.

Of course, that's all the negative qualities about the season. There are positive attributes. For example, the first half of the season was deliciously dark, something that had been missing during season five. As mentioned, the Bolen mystery was unsolvable due to lack of clues in the first half. While this isn't exactly a good thing, it's preferable to being able to solve the mystery three episodes in. Katherine's (Dana Delany) descent into a nervous breakdown was probably the highlight of the season.

Desperate Housewives has been one of my favorite shows to ever hit television since it debuted in 2005. Season 5 was probably the weakest in my opinion although it did feature some extraordinary episodes luckily Season 6 is an improvement. There is good and bad in this season. The new family is pretty interesting however I feel a lot of the storylines were recycled much like season 5 and the show ultimately suffers without Nicolette Sheridans character Edie. The actresses are likely the best of tv especially Marcia Cross, Felicity Hoffman, and Eva Longoria they all truly shine but without the fire and ice of Nicolette Sheridan there is no confrontation and crack up moments between the ladies and its a shame since Sheridans character brought a much needed and appreciated brutal honesty to the series. Still a good season not great though but better than season 5 and hopefully season 7 will bring us back to the housewives we love and get them back on top so we don't have to bury this series too soon.

An excellent comeback from what Season 5 was. Susan and Mike are finally back together (let's hope it stays that way), Angie Bolen and her family are a much needed relief after Dave Williams and his mystery. They added something unique to the show, but I'm glad they only stayed a season. Even though the show isnt the same without Edie, it is beginning to be what it was in its early days again, and Season 7 will certainly see a continuation in this trend.

Season five was spotty, but turned out okay in the end. But this season finally fell apart. I couldn't even make it through the whole thing. The season's mystery is boring and protracted, the housewives are grating, and Dana Delaney is desperately under-served.

Format: DVD
Following the previous five seasons, this season was overall enjoyable but by no means the best - my honest rating for this season is 3.5/5 stars (but Amazon won't let me give half-stars) I have solidly enjoyed all of the seasons, including this one, though of course some were better than others. Some aspects of this season felt over the top to me, including the Christmas accident. I did like the fight between the Scavos and the Solises over Lynette's job and pregnancy, and there were lots of great plot points in this season - I would be lying if I said this was a bad season.

However, this show has been running for so long that some of the plot twists almost feel forced. As much as I have loved this show, I have to be honest, I hope that Season 7 is the last. The season finale for this season revealed some new twists to look forward to for Season 7 and I certainly am excited to see the end results of them, but I am hoping that this season has been leading into a good final season, so that this awesome show doesn't jump the shark.

Probably not for another year or so and that might just be the early seasons. The distributer wants to make as much money as possible on the DVDs before they offer the "upgrade" to Blu-ray. Supernatural kind of took the same route albeit they started to release on Blu-ray around season... Read More

Box/ Case?
Actually, seasons 1-5 were in the bulkier packaging, but since they are being re-released, they are being released in the slimmer packs. Seasons 4 and 5 will eventually be available in the slimmer pack.

Why's it coming out so late?
I know. Usually they realise it earlier to give viewers time to catch up before the next season starts.
