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).

The time Desperate Housewives came into advertising moments at Studio23 it didn't catch my attention immediately. I thought it was just one of the usual drama series that inadvertently attracts the attention of any melodramatic viewers, however I was totally wrong with my primary impression, it wasn't dramatic at all, comedy and puzzling twist where one of its successful magnetism that will always keep you hanging at the edge of your seats. The series is starred by four "Desperate Housewives" in its usual episodically scheduled time in Studio23, namely: Susan Mayer, Bree Van De Kamp, Lynette Scavo, Gabrielle Solis played by this wonderful stars: Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria respectively.
Even for a guy like me could embrace and yearn for this kind of drama series. It even made weep many times; I thought it was a lowly dramatized play that couldn't even catch the interest of ordinary viewers, but it was the best realistic series that anyone could actually love. Witty moments were one of its attracting element, Desperate Housewives never lacks on it, every episode were complete, mystery, intrigues, drama, jokes, crime and hilarity always coalesce every episode that appear. I would even scamper instantaneously to finish washing dishes and bathe myself around 9:30 at night to capture the beginning of each episode.
For sure if anyone had followed the mystifying story of Mary Alice Young, going to every inhabitant of Mysterial Lanesuburban neighborhood, you would really appreciate the beauty of the plot of "Desperate Housewives", keep watching
