Although the creators of the show keep the location of Wisteria Lane a secret, several clues have been given that contradict each other. For example, in the first season the restaurant Saddle Ranch is featured once, suggesting that the mystery location is either in California or Arizona, where the restaurant has locations. However, two families, the Applewhites and the Mayfairs had moved from Chicago suggesting that Fairview is near there. Those two cities are very far from each other. When Renee (Vanessa Williams) arrives she tells Lynette that she flew all the way across the country to see her. Renee lives in NYC so that would suggest Fairview is on the west coast of the United States. There is also a scene where Suzy is looking for her ex-husband's grandmother's ring. You can see a sign for US Highway 7 which runs from Norwalk, CT, to just south of the Canadian border in Vermont. See more »

The credits contain references to famous pieces of art, including Adam and Eve by Lucas Cranach the Elder, The Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck, American Gothic by Grant Wood, and Andy Warhol's Campbell's soup can. Also alluded to are the lesser known Couple Arguing and Romantic Couple by Robert Dale (drawn in a comic book style similar to that of Roy Liechtenstein) and a 1940s "Am I Proud!" poster by Dick Williams (showing a woman holding cans).

I first stumbled across this on an ad and I decided to watch it on it's first air date. What I thought could have been a lame show like Sex and the City or Lost I was wrong, the show seems to be a black comedy drama and turns at some times to be brimming with some campiness and occasionally gets a bit over the top. I admire this because it is a nice show which doesn't patronize the viewer at times like most American television shows and it does get a little silly but that's what's the fun of it.
Susan Meyer, Bree Van De Kamp, Lynette Scavo and Gabrielle Solis are all housewives with passions and desires. They are all different and unique from each other and they struggle with everyday life on Wysteria Lane. All four of their stories/actions are done great in a hour and there are some great character detail and emphasis. Hatcher is good but I'm not sure wherever or not she should be the lead, Huffman is very good and makes good expression and emotion when living in an annoying environment with her kids, job and life. Longoria is beautiful and lovely with nice frustration, lust and desires in her marriage. Cross is excellent and shows how a woman who wants to be the perfect and most distinguishable from the rest with repression of anger, confusion and sadness.
The male leads are not as strong as the female mainly because obviously its to do with ladies and they are left in the cutting room but Chavira, Savant and Metcalfe are pretty good too. Desperate Housewives is a great show and I think it's probably one of the best American shows out now.
