The price isnt so right!!
Really got into watching Desperate Housewives 4 and thought id buy all the series! then i looked at the prices - £32 for season 1 - which was released 3 years ago!! Ridiculous!!!! Put your prices down and you may get more people wanting to buy series like this!!!!!!
Excellent TV Show that I recommend downloading. Just about the best thing on TV at the moment. I've watched every episode since the very first pilot - that's how addictive and good it is. Of course the next series will be Season 4, but you've got to watch it from the first season if you really want to know what's going on. Out of all the ones I've watched, the only one that I found quite average was the pilot (so don't let the pilot put you off). I promise every other episode is fantastic.
