Desperate Housewives

Desperate Housewives
© Buena Vista International Television

The basics: To the outside world, the Housewives are ordinary, respectable, middle-class American citizens. They live in a swanky suburb where lawns are mowed, gardens carefully tended and people immaculately dressed. But behind closed doors, the reality of life in Wisteria Lane is anything but normal! Desperate Housewives begins with the suicide of Marie-Alice Young, and her friends and neighbors Bree Van de Kamp, Susan Mayer, Lynette Scavo and Gabrielle Solis set out to find out what drove her to shoot herself.

Main characters: Marcia Cross (Bree Van De Kamp), Teri Hatcher (Susan Mayer), Felicity Huffman (Lynette Scavo), Eva Longoria (Gabrielle Solis), Nicolette Sheridan (Edie Britt)

Why we love it: For Susan’s blunders and Lynette’s strength of character – Lynne gave up her career to look after her husband and four kids from hell. Mum Bree is a serial perfectionist and control freak, while Gabrielle is a glamouspuss who won’t set foot outside if she’s not dressed up to the nines – even if she’s only going for a jog. The world of the Desperate Housewives looks – and is – too perfect to be true, and as the mysteries, plots and secrets are unraveled, we’re left on the edge of our seats...

Watch it with: Either your girlfriends or your partner. Desperate Housewives may be aimed at women, but everyone, including men, will also love the intrigue.
