Critic Reviews for Desperate Housewives Season 4

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

This season of Desperate Housewives was pretty intense, especially since it started with the after effects of the tornado. I really enjoyed it and this season was definitely better than the last.

Sep 24, 2018 | Full Review…

In an effort to keep itself fresh over its first four seasons, it has jumped the shark, introducing (and ultimately killing off) too many characters and suffering from lazy writing.

Sep 18, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

[Dana Delany] actually seems perfect for this role and looks to be a choice adversary for Bree. And I'm genuinely intrigued as to what the big mystery is surrounding her family.

Sep 19, 2018 | 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.

Audience Reviews for Desperate Housewives: Season 4

While the last two seasons of Desperate Housewives definitely suffered to live up to season one's high standards (especially season two), season four improved not only from seasons two and three, but also from the critically acclaimed first. Delivering great storylines such as Bree's fake pregnancy, Lynette's cancer, Gaby's affair and even Susan's real pregnancy, season four was already great. But then add the Kayla storyline and season four's top notch mystery, and you get season four, or in my opinion, Desperate Housewives at its finest. The only bad thing about this season is Victor Lang's death, which could've been better, but I can live with it. Despite generally not considered as the series' best season, it sure did convinced me.
