Desperate Housewives: The Complete Second Season's most intriguing female story lines — a nun covets Gaby's husband, Bree pursues her sex-addicted AA sponsor, and new addition Betty (Alfre Woodard) has problem sons — get stale when stretched over multiple episodes. Only the show's male supporting roles (like Richard Burgi's Karl) are fresh. EXTRAS The Waltons' Michael Learned and other classic TV moms dish (''I look at Bree and I think, No wonder she drinks,'' says Learned).
