Desperate Housewives - Season 5,
This review is from: Desperate Housewives - Season 5 [DVD] (DVD)
Being a huge fan of the Desperate Housewives series, this season was dissapointing. As previous reviewers have said, the time jump of 5 years really did nothing to the plot. The writing is still good, but it's certainly not at it's best, many of the best lines going to Gabby (Eva Longoria Parker), who really does provide most of the humour this season. The 100th episode...actually not that great. Not as heartfelt and emotional as what it could have been and overall left you thinking 'was that it?' Which unfortunately, is a question that most of us seem to have been asking ourselves at the end of this season.
We also loose a much beloved member of the cast this series who will be deeply missed by many fans (personally, i don't think losing her was a good move at all on the writers behalf) and with ratings sinking in the U.S, the future of D.H doesn't look bright. It's not terrible, and seeing as I have Seasons 1-4 I almost feel I have to buy this boxset, so will look at it as hopefully just a weak season, a minor bump in the series which will hopefully improve in it's next season. But with (uncomfirmed) plans for a musical episode in season 6, this may well be the end to what was once a very, very good series.
