With the mystery involving the suicide of Mary Alice explained this second season introduced new characters and new plots into the mix. It still mostly made for a fun watch but, for me at least, this was the shows worst season as the writers attempted to stick too closely to template set out in the shows debut season but were never able to make the central mystery anywhere near as interesting.… Full Review »

The main reason is the way that the cast chemistry transfers effectively to character interaction, building the bases for which the show's entire comedic presence can be thoroughly felt.… Full Review »
