Amazon Prime Video, 8 seasons
It's 16 years since Desperate Housewives debuted to staggering viewing figures as the mysteries and secrets of Wisteria Lane had us glued to our TVs.

The drama gets pretty wild across its eight seasons, but the various mysteries remain compelling and addictive viewing.
