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 bought the entire series. It was one of my favorite programs. How wonderful is it to watch this series WITH NO COMMERCIALS, it's great. Highly recommend to buy a series that you love and want to watch over and over without commercials. It's a NEW experience. The problem is, that After watching something I love without commercials, it's hard to go back to commercials. I don't know what's happening in TV land but the commercials are now 6 minutes long, but the worst thing is there are more commercial breaks than ever. I am about to consider not watching TV anymore. WHY AM I THE ONLY ONE AFFECTED BY SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY COMMERCIALS. It is totally ridiculous. I have several friends who are dropping regular TV and streaming movies so they don't have to deal with THIS MANY COMMERCIALS IN ONE PROGRAM. Yes!!!! I am able to FF through the commercials, but there are so many now, that it doesn't make a difference in not wanting to watch regular TV and I have been spoiled by watching Desperate Housewives and Becker without commercials, two programs I can watch over and over. I m so spoiled now.

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.

Desperate Housewives was one of my favorite shows so I'm happy to now have the full series. Not thrilled about all the advertisement at the beginning. It takes far too long to get through even by fast forwarding.

This was and still is my favorite show of all time and season 6 was my favorite season of all because it had the best guest stars on there such as Drea de Mateo from the Sopranoes who did an amazing job as Angie Bolen who was a strong,tough character and Josh Zuckerman from the movie sexdrive did an even more amazing job as Eddie Orlofski which was my personal favorite storyline. I couldn't help but to feel for him in spite of the awful things he has done but it was his mothers fault for making him turn out the way that he did and Diane Farr did an amazing job playing his drunken,evil mother!

I got hooked really fast on this series and had to have every season of DVDs. This one did not disappoint. I have already watched the whole thing at least twice. Have to give it a rest for a while so I can come back to it and watch it all over again and be delighted all over again.
