This paper investigates how differently gender aspects and the cultural construct of "suburbia" interact in "Desperate Housewives." Next to an introduction to how suburbia is transformed into its dystopian counterpart, this scientific approach to the hit show offers new insights, focusing on the depiction of manhood and womanhood in the series. Ineffective and emasculated men, failing women, wives and mothers are the key to the ABC hit show. The author's in-depth analysis of "Wisteria Lane" reveals even more gender-relevant leitmotifs: the connection of violence/crime and manlihood, gayness, queerness and the not always uncomplicated friendships in "Fairview's" most exceptional neighborhood are only some of the major topics this paper deals with.
