Summary: Wisteria Lane just got Juicer
Comment: This season of Desperate Housewives is one of the best with several interesting storylines.

Katherine Mayfair comes to Wisteria Lane after an absence of many years with her daughter Dylan and new husband (who has a few mysteries of his own). Dylan and Julie Myer used to be friends when Dylan lived on Wisteria Lane, they pick up where they left off but there is something different about Dylan (especially considering she can't remember living on Wisteria Lane when she moved when she was 6) Dylan wants to find her father and enlist Julie to help her, but when he shows up it becomes apparent why Dylan can not remember living on Wisteria Lane.

Gabby Solis is courted by Victor Lang who is the Mayor of Fairview They get married, but soon Gabby is in the arms of her ex Carlos and then tries to hide her affair from her new husband.

Carlos Solis had been having an affair with Edie Britt, but soon after a fight about them starting a family he is in the arms of his ex Gabby who had just got married.

Susan Myer had been involved with Brit Ian and was about to get married to him before her ex boyfriend Mike Delfino regained the memory he had lost in a car accident. Soon she could not make up her mind, but after Ian broke up with her she and Mike got married and she soon found out that she was pregnant.

Bree Hodge just got back from a honeymoon with her new husband Orson and she is pregnant, so so her friends think. It turns out that she is just pretending to be pregnant because she is protecting her teenage daughter Danielle who is pregnant. She has a hard time keeping the secret and when Danielle comes back it is even harder. Edie (the baby's great aunt) soon finds out and blackmails Bree who is forced to tell the whole story to her friends (and leads to this seasons mystery with Edie's new hubby)

Then there is Lynette Scavo who finds out that she has cancer and also has to deal with her wicked step-daughter who tries to make her life difficult

The storylines all come together in the last episode when a tornado comes down on Wisteria Lane.

What is the reason Dylan can not remember living on Wisteria Lane? What happens to Gabby, Carlos, Lynette, Susan, and Bree watch the fourth season of Desperate Housewives

Summary: Poor follow-on
Comment: This season is far inferior to the previous three; the characters lack plausible motivations, the story is increasingly soapy, and the tornado is so unrealistic that it takes one directly out of the storyline. However, the worst aspect is the ending: it is so anti-climatic and uninteresting that not only does it fail to wrap up season 4, it sapped all interest for season 5.

Summary: Terrific extras make an already good season a must-have set for fans.
Comment: There's little else to add to what others have said of the season itself. Instead, I wanted to note the great extras that make this DVD set a nice buy. Several are of the same type as previous season sets:

There are audio commentaries for six episodes, the first by Marc Cherry and some writers with nice tidbits (season 3 was to end with the revelation of Bree faking her pregnancy but ABC didn't think that was dramatic enough so they came up with Edie's "Hanging"). The other five are "Couple commentaries" with nice banter between the actors and some fun stuff (like Marcia Cross marveling at how her cleveage was so big early in the season).

"Desperate From Beginning to End" looks at the creation of an episode, this one the tornado ep. It notes what a challenge it was with all the stunts and special effects work and how amazed they were ABC let them destory the set like that. It's a great insight to how they created the amazing story.

Hanging with the Men of Wisteria Lane" has the male actors bowling and sharing stories about the show.

"Cherry Picked" are Marc Cherry's half-dozen favorite scenes from the season.

There are also a dozen deleted scenes, many filler but some interesting and fun. This includes the alternate ending for the season finale and it's clear that Cherry made the right move changing it.

So overall, great extras flesh the season out and make this rebounding series back on its game.
