Format: DVD
For the vast majority of TV series there is an unavoidable law of diminishing returns so that by the 3rd series the interest is often lost. Only the savvy few adapt enough & have good enough scriptwriters to last the course.
The first 2 seasons of DH were fun & interesting enough to keep you watching. Season 3 was always going to have to up the ante if audience interest was to be maintained. So it is we are presented with far tougher story lines than seen in either of the previous 2 seasons. Toms daughter & her mother become a real problem as he & Lynette open a pizza restaurant, Carlos & Gabrielle's marriage ends, Bree finds herself imbroiled in all sorts of gran guignol style scenarios thanks to the new man in her life,(a brilliant turn from Kyle Mclaughlan as the spineless yet creepy mothers boy Orson),. New characters crop up, (Dougray Scott the only irritating performance as the wooden new man in Susans life Ian),.
As ever with DH the writers are not afraid to shake things up and so several characters meet with swift & unexpected ends. The standout episode is 'Bang' where a deranged jilted wife takes hostages in the local supermarket. This episode really illustrates how things have been 'moved up a gear', it's funny yet still shocks. This series is far more gruesome than those before yet is still very funny and above all the five main ladies continue to dominate.
The main themes of love, hate & the consequences of deception remain the central thread running through Desperate housewives. The pace my have changed but this remains a very likable programme that has still not outstayed it's welcome.
The sound is fine and the picture is excellent even if the colours are somewhat oversaturated,(giving Wisteria lane a kind of 'land of Oz' type feel),.

Well, we all thought it had declined in quality during Season 2 but with Season 3, Desperate Housewives is back to its old self and perhaps, is better than ever before. Witty, silly, dramatic, mysterious, complex, dark and shocking - this show has it all. It sort of went a bit lame during the second half but the ending of the season makes up for all that - it is simply the most shocking final scene ever and leaves you wanting more guaranteeing you'll be back for Season 4. If you haven't seen it yet, or simply want to relive it all again, then pre-order this box-set. You won't be disappointed.

Two years after its pilot, Desperate Housewives started its third season. And what a great set of ideas Marc Cherry got in it. First of all, he brought in it a very good mystery, which involved not only one of my favorite characters, Orson Hodge, but the other Housewives, most of all Bree and Susan Mayer, now in a new romance with a British businessman called Ian. Which was great because although the second season's mystery was great, I felt it could have been perfect had the Housewives been more involved in its story, and not just Bree. But for This season, this mystery was well-paced, exciting, and set at a better rhythm than the other seasons. For the writers got the brilliant idea of ending their mystery at the fifteenth episode and not at the end of the finale. That way, Orson Hodge's mystery didn't drag on and on like in the fifth and sixth seasons. And the writers got to use the other episodes to prepare us for the fourth season, gave more space to Edie's storylines and even include a mystery with Karen Macklusky, which I really liked.

Now for the episode Bang, I felt that this definitely was the best episode for it had lots of suspense and tension, but it also involved Lynette Scavo in one of her best scenes against Katherine Bigsby. This episode was such a success that Marc Cherry reused the concept of an accident in each season. Though I still think that only the tornado was up to par with the quality of the episode Bang. As for the fire and the plane crash, we'll talk about it in the next reviews.

Finally, it was a great season because the Housewives interacted more between with each other, but of course in which we got to have other interesting guest characters, such Dixie Carter, who was perfect as Orson's mother, Lynn Redgrave, Laurie Metcalf, Matt Roth, Gwendoline Yeo, Jason Gedrick, and Rachel Fox. All excellent actors who brought lots of energy to the show and to their characters.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 12 Aug. 2010
Format: DVD
Desperate Housewives was an instant hit in the first season. But the writing in the second season needed work at times, and the mystery plotline for that year wasn't nearly as compelling as in year one.

So would the show fall into the pattern of tv shows that start strongly but can never live up to that, or would it manage to recover?

The latter option.

The show reaches a stage here that many shows get to in their third year. The time when everyone involves knows exactly what they're doing and what works best about the programme. And that makes for episodes that are often brilliant. Even the ones that aren't are never less than very good.

Main storylines see Susan caught up in a love triangle. Guest actor Dougray Scott plays her upper class british boyfriend with an accent that attracted some criticism but really isn't anything bad. Lynette has to deal with a woman who'd break up her family. Gabrielle has marital strife and the effect it's aftermath has on her life. And Bree has a new husband. Who has dark secrets.

The latter is the main mystery plotline for the season and manages to do what season one did in presenting a storyline that twists and turns and offers more than a few surprises along the way. The plotline is resolved a little earlier than expected as actress Marcia Cross was due to go on maternity leave and thus misses the last third of the season, but even once that happens the quality of the other stories does keep you going. Although you do rather miss Bree.

Best episode of the season is the seventh 'bang', which sees several of the characters caught up in a hostage situation at a supermarket. Very tense and incredibly well directed you simply can't take your eyes off it.
