Desperate Housewives Season 6 DVD Review

“Desperate Housewives” has lost its luster.In the 23 episode sixth season, a mysterious, secretive new housewife named Angie is introduced (along with her messed up family). Other key plotlines include: Gabrielle struggling to to raise a teenage niece, Bree having an affair with Karl, Lynette dealing with pregnancy, a plane crash, Katherine wanting to win back Mike until she discovers something about herself, a “what if?” episode, a stripper named Robin, and a strangler.

“Desperate Housewives” was the IT show for the first couple of seasons. Viewers couldn’t get enough of Wisteria Lane and the quirky primetime soap opera format. Nowadays, however, the show has both dropped in ratings and in popularity. Heck, the show doesn’t even have one one of the housewives anymore (Nicollette Sheridan). Judging by the sixth season, it’s not hard to see why. The show has clearly grown tired with never ending cliffhangers, over the top drama, and downright annoying characters. One also has to wonder why anyone would even stay in Wisteria Lane as it appears to be the worst neighborhood in the world.

Summary: Not even guest star John Barrowman of “Torchwood” and “Doctor Who” fame can save this season. Recommended only for ‘Housewives’ fanatics.

The 1.78:1 widescreen picture quality is a little on the fuzzy side. The Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track, meanwhile is fine (despite the fact that the show has the most irritating score on television).

Extras:
* $10 off Disney TV show DVD coupon.
* A random extra in which Miss Piggy and Prawn interview the cast and crew of “Desperate Housewives” aand tour Wisteria Lane.
* 7 deleted scenes.
* 5 minutes of bloopers.
* “Desperate Housewives Master Class”- An extra about what it takes to be an actor or actress on the show.

* Creator Marc Cherry’s 4 favorite scenes with optional commentary.
