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.

All things hit their peaks and then start sliding downwards. My personal guess is that they probably should have ended this show with Edie's death. What we seem to be doing in this season is just dealing with ongoing "more of the same" in the neighborhood. The characters have all had their days in the sun and are well past those days. There have been some new characters added but they haven't really added anything to the show. It seems as if they are trying to breathe some new life into this but they can't. Drea Matteo from the SOPRANOS is one of these. Hers is basically a one note performance of someone hiding out in the neighborhood from criminal mistakes in her past. Another is the stripper with the heart of gold (I wish I were making this up). I wish Mike and Susan had stayed divorced. The two of them now irritate me constantly. Terri Hatcher has become positively grating. The last best story arc this show had was Dave, the neighbor, married to Edie, who was trying to kill Mike and then Susan for killing his wife and child in an auto collision. When that arc of the story ended, last season, the air just went out of this whole thing. Tom and Lynette are now having yet another baby and it isn't doing a thing for me. That couple has completely lost their drift. I enjoyed Gabby more when she was plotting against her mother in law and having it off with the teenage boyfriend, not to mention trying to jump start her haute couture career again. Bree and Orson are now beyond soap opera cliche with him in a wheelchair. I think this show needed to keep a few "evil" characters, like Edie and Gabby, the way she used to be, and Dave. Now everyone is kind of a nice person with the usual suburban problems and it is boring. Every series runs out of gas eventually and I believe this is one of them.Read more ›

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.

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.

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.

I would like to know that as well - have you received any reply yet?

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.
