3.0 out of 5 stars A must for every Desperate Housewives fan 13 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
I had some difficulties finding the fifth season for a good price, but this offer was definitely the best one I could get. I don't regret buying it, but I have to admit that I prefer the other seasons much more.
Although this is a must for every fan, be aware that this season isn't as thrilling as the ones before. Hence the reason I only find it OK. But it is also interesting to see how the characters evolved in the fifth season.
Just buy it and make yourself an opinion :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as series 1-3 13 July 2010
Format:DVD
Good, but not as good as series 1-3, which had lots of sub-plots and complexity to the characters.

Apart from the usual "airbrushing" of the actresses on the DVD & Box covers, (always annoying), some of the storylines did really spoil it for me.

The plot for Susan with her new "boyfriend" Jackson gets irritating, and goes on too long, as does Dave's (Edie's new husband), when it comes to putting into place his evil plan for revenge. Although, I actually felt quite sorry for him in the finale, where he ultimately made the right choice, (and, sadly, ended up as & where he did... I don't want to give too much away, so I'll say no more on this).

You also come to realise how nasty Bree can be! Poor Orson!

One thing to note, is that the sleeve for the bonus DVD (disc 7) and the box for the set itself, both say there will be two episodes with audio commentary on disc 7, and although they can be viewed on the sequential discs (1 & 4, respectively), they are NOT on the Bonus Disc - the Bonus Features end at the Deleted Scenes point; (or they do on MY set, anyway, so this may not apply to very recent issues). There are three episodes in total with audio commentary, one of which has two different commentaries.

Also, there is NO audio commentary option for the Deleted Scenes, so it's difficult to understand why they were deleted, (and therefore, detracts from the point of featuring them at all). Fans who own the other seasons on DVD will know the Deleted Scenes section always has an audio option by someone key in the show's production, (usually creator Marc Cherry), but this time, it's been avoided for some reason.

Otherwise, creative in some areas, and darkly funny in others.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Great As Ever 16 May 2010
By E. Smith TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is just one of those shows that's different shades of great. It can be funny, sad, tense and sentimental, but it's never dull or depressing.

The girls are all as much fun as ever, although I always see Catherine as the odd one out, never really a main player. Bree's just wonderful, as always, and her interaction with Susan's ex and unscupulous lawyer is very entertaining with the promise of more to come.

The creepy storyline comes from a new too-good-to-be-true husband, but despite his obvious nastiness, I couldn't help but feel for him. Under different circumstances, he'd be a great guy.

Anyway, it's a show that's always a real pleasure to watch, and I'm only sorry it's going to be a least a year until the next dvd gets to the magic 18 mark.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still very enjoyable 24 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
Season 5 sat on my shelf for nearly 2 months after I bought it while I watched some other DVDs, but then...once I started, I watched the whole season in 4 or 5 days! This alone shows that I still find it very entertaining. It's funny and lively, and always keeps its multiple storylines moving along quite well.

There are many aspects to admire about DH, but for me the outstanding ones are the quality of the characterisation and the subtlety of the writing. The actors are mostly excellent and create great characters (one of my favourites is Karen McCluskey, who has deservedly grown into a main character from a very minor role). They all have some wonderful lines at times, often with multiple meanings and great comedy.

It's true that there were fewer plot twists than before, and this is a shame. Some of the characters are also running through the motions of what they have done before. In particular, Susan was sadly under-used, with this season being just an extended tease about her relationship with Mike again, without really developing any other sides of her character.

The five-year gap was clearly a fairly minor plot device whose purpose was mainly to age the children of Wisteria Lane, and I think this was good because it allowed some development (particularly the Scavo twins and Juanita Solis). However, the ladies certainly didn't look five years older, and didn't seem to be in the stories (Lynette claims to be 43 in this series whereas I always thought she was already in her 40s). The claim that Gabby had lost her looks also didn't really hold water (thankfully!).

On the other hand, anybody looking for realism has missed the point. DH is a fantasy world and not meant to be taken seriously. It's entertainment, and that's something that it still does very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars I just love Wisteria Lane... 28 Dec 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can never get enough of those women at Wisteria Lane. There's always romance, intrigue, mistery, all perfect ingredients for a good series. On the 5th Season, there are still lots of twists and great one-liners. I usually catch my husband laughing out loud while I am the one watching!!! If you are a fan of the series, you will enjoy all the surprises, although some of them are quite bitter... Don't worry, I won't spoil your pleasure of going OHHH!!!

I loved this series! It is true that the plot with Jackson drags out for a bit too long however this is probably because we all know Mike belongs with Susan and we resent anyone... Read more
