Critic Reviews

  1. 60
    “Army Wives” is by no means a perfect show, but there’s a lot of potential material in the lives of these women.
  2. While lacking the satirical humor of "Housewives" and the edge of "Unit," the show is serviceable in its storytelling, quite well-done in its production and better than well-done in its acting.
  3. 60
    Television needs a stronger series on the subject, and military families deserve something better.
  4. 50
    If you like Lifetime, you'll probably love this one.
  5. The obvious, soapy stories plod along at a too-languid pace, leaving talented actors in their wake.

    Never saw the kind of drivel you write about the Army or it's environs. Make a mockery of the Military and you can expect negative criticisms.

    Army Wives is the best drama on TV today and also very underrated. Catherine Bell as Denise Sherwood continues to shine with her performances Army Wives is the best drama on TV today and also very underrated. Catherine Bell as Denise Sherwood continues to shine with her performances weekly. You will cry after the first ep of season 4 if you have not seen her yet. Everyone on the show is phenomenal and they (the Tribe) do make you want to cheer for them and their families. Full Review »
