Desperate Housewives

The Complete First Season

Desperate Housewives, ABC's surprise breakout hit, has arrived on DVD just in time for fans to brush up before the premiere of the second season. Bask in Wisteria Lane's devilishly delightful blend of satire, drama, and mystery--from the gunshot that started it all to the tense cliff-hanger of the season finale.

Six of the 23 episodes on this gorgeously packaged set can be viewed in an "unrated, extended" format with clarifying introductions from series creator Marc Cherry. Also included are deleted scenes for seven other episodes, audio commentaries from Cherry and the Emmy-nominated Desperate Housewives cast, a blooper reel, five fascinating featurettes, and The New Neighbor, a special segment in which Oprah Winfrey arrives on Wisteria Lane.

A box full of dirty laundry has never been this much fun. Enjoy ...

Mr. Parker
The Pretender is the story of Jarod, a boy-genius taken from his family as a child. Jarod possesses the ability to quickly learn and impersonate different jobs and occupations. His abductors, a facility simply known as The Centre, tested his abilities through various simulations. But after years of these performances, Jarod becomes wise to the fact that these simulations aren't being used to help people. The Centre sells the sims to the highest bidder to do with as they please, whether it is for good or evil purposes. Knowing this, he breaks free from his captors. Now, as an adult, Jarod sets out to find his family. Along the way, he befriends many people, righting any wrong by using his abilities to become anyone he wants to be. But the Centre has a lot invested in Jarod, and they won't give him up easily. They recruit Sydney, his father-figure and trainer all through his time growing up in The Centre. Sydney is the only man who is close to Jarod, he knows how he thinks. Also in pursuit is Miss Parker, Jarod's childhood friend whose father runs The Centre. Both are aided by Broots, a nervous computer whiz who goes above and beyond the call of duty (whether he wants to or not). The Pretender ran for four years on NBC. TNT co-produced two Pretender movies with Twentieth Century Fox TV. The Pretender 2001 premiered on TNT Monday, January 22, 2001 at 8PM. The second movie, The Pretender: Island of the Haunted, premiered on TNT Monday, December 10, 2001 at 8PM ET. Seasons 1-4 and both TV movies are currently available on DVD.moreless
