  • Bloopers – Fans will laugh out loud one more time at the most hilarious moments of filming on-set during the hit series’ celebrated eighth and final season.

My Take on the DVD
I have been a fan of this show for all eight seasons and this season was amazing, and it led to an amazing end of the show. This DVD set brought the whole show itself to an amazing close and I thought that the writers did a great job at pulling together all of the loose ends even though I did not think that they would be able to. Too many shows when they end do not end in such a seamless way, but this one did, and this set brought it all back.

Outside of the DVD set itself, this DVD set had some great bonus features. I particularly enjoyed the deleted scenes as it gave me an even greater insight into the series and the season in general.

All-in-all this was a great DVD set and a great season and I would highly recommend this set to any Desperate Housewives fan!
