Even in the midst of both political conventions, there’s one things hockey moms and soccer moms can agree on: the addictive nature of "Desperate Housewives."
When the series started you didn’t even want to start watching it; yet four seasons later there you sit, restlessly awaiting the September 28 premiere of season five. It's okay; it happened to all of us. In the meantime, season four has just this week hit DVD, ready to remind you of all the confessions, lies, break-ups and make-ups we loved watching the first time.
Season four’s most notable event, of course, was Bree Hodge finally meeting her match, in Dana Delaney’s Katherine Mayfair. New neighbor Katherine’s arguably every bit the chef, hostess and homemaker Bree is—and like Bree she’s not going to nominated for Mother of the Year. Making her the perfect nemesis for our favorite manic Martha Stewart.
Also notable, of course, are two pregnancies, an attempted murder, a cancer battle and one hell of a natural disaster. And at season’s end we get another suprise: a five-year fast-forward where we glimpse the women our favorite housewives will become. The future flash calls into question the fate of one of the ladies’ marriages, one housewife’s parenting, and another’s ability to maintain her own identity. What’s also revealed is the solidity of Katherine Mayfair’s place as the show’s sixth lead, as she’s shown as part of the womens’ lives five years in the future. Delany's casting marks the first addition to the core female cast since the show began.
In addition to offering a great refresher of the season, and filling in any episodes you may have missed, the five-disc set also offers extended scenes and a behind-the-scenes look at the development of an episode, from conception to casting, to shooting and editing. All-in-all a worthwhile investment for fans die-hard and casual.
