Critic Reviews for Desperate Housewives Season 3

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

The third season has recaptured much of the ABC hit's original comic-melodramatic zest. And below the surface there's still the resonance of some darker emotion.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

With the shorter story arcs, the writers were able to captivate the audience with new and exciting twists without keeping us hanging on for too long.

Sep 20, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Desperate Housewives was much better in its third year than its second, bouncing back with far more engaging and interesting plots and recapturing much of the witty comedic moments...that makes it a soap opera with something outside the ordinary to it.

Sep 19, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

The biggest flaws become apparent in the third season. Creator Marc Cherry continues to show his short-sightedness by killing storylines too quickly and never quite knowing where things are heading.

Sep 18, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

"Desperate Housewives" has improved its performance but not changed its ways.

Sep 19, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

[Desperate Housewives is] back in fine form, thanks to an amusing premiere that launched a plethora of promising stories while introducing welcome new residents.

Sep 19, 2018 | Full Review…

This third season promises to be delicious. The first episode is wickedly funny and warped. The Wives rule.

Sep 19, 2018 | Full Review…

"Housewives" definitely seemed to be in a better place than this time last season.

Audience Reviews for Desperate Housewives: Season 3

After a bit of a slumpy second season, the third one definitely returns to the first season's quality. The whole season is good, but it could've been so much more. The episodes before the departure of Bree Hodge surpassed season one in terms of interesting storylines, plots and twists. Sadly, after episode sixteen, as we got more time with Edie, the season started to drop from great to good. Despite that, season three is surely an improvememt from season two, mostly because the ladies socialize again. The best improvements over the last season were the well written mystery and the storylines' obvious improvement. Also, with an episode like "Bang", season three is hard to dislike. It may not be the best season, but season three stands out as the season that gives the biggest increase in quality over the last.
