Critic Reviews for Desperate Housewives: Season 8

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5)

Desperate Housewives was part cheeky satire, part mystery, part racy version of Stepford Wives - and something entirely new.

September 20, 2018 | Full Review…

This installment of Desperate Housewives didn't exactly feel like a season premiere--it wasn't much of an event, as it were. But that's not to say that the season as a whole doesn't look like it will be fun.

September 20, 2018 | Full Review…

I honestly couldn't have imagined a better and more fitting end.

September 18, 2018 | Rating: 4.8/5 | Full Review…

After a finale like that, we suspect Desperate Housewives will endure in the minds of viewers for a long time as well.

September 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Beneath all of its trashy fun, "Desperate Housewives" often says something meaningful about the aspirations of American women.

September 20, 2018 | Full Review…

All the while, Mrs. McCluskey' actions gave weight to the drama during both hours [of the series finale].
