    Great drama but far from realistic. So far I see a dumb wife, a cheating wife, a lost wife and a stressed husband Then there is the "savior" colonel's wife. Believe me that doesn't happen. No

    Show started off as a good drama now wallowing as the sappiest of the sappy of smarmy soap operas. Last show of season (10/11/09) was prob my last ever. TOO many explpsions for a season finale. A good showmight have some minor cliffhanger drama; This had a pregnancy , a possible suicide after a bar fight(Yaaawnnn-cliched, biz shutdown for the new mom-to-be ,possible combat death, angry Show started off as a good drama now wallowing as the sappiest of the sappy of smarmy soap operas.

A good showmight have some minor cliffhanger drama; This had a pregnancy , a possible suicide after a bar fight(Yaaawnnn-cliched, biz shutdown for the new mom-to-be ,possible combat death, angry mopey husband, 'preciou' baby with dead or woundedothet, FBI invading former black activist on the run, needy, horney teen trying too hard( she'll prob be in bed in the other room when they find suicide possible, or even worse she's shot cuz she bravely tried to stop him,mama leaving rogue hubby, feistyblack bar worker turns out to be fantastic singer(bet she can dance too,) a shame she can't act beyond the sassy stereotype of the street smart heroine as stereotypical black female actress. Roxy spiraling down to the duh-duh-duhmm blond abyss, plot lines all sensation with little acting and many confrontational 'walkaways' (when does that happen in real life, and WAY too many 'can I talk with yous while adjourning to a spot a few feet away , very obvious and where everyone can still hear' , OVERacting and chewing up scenes by the brilliant and beautiful Kim Delaney ( forgive me for saying, in the past we have seen that during her bouts with substance abuse-I pray that that is not happening). All in all a reliance on cheap gimmicks and tawdriness as a lazy excuse for good writing and acting, it seems that all involved stopped creating and read some early positive press go to their heads- HEY Y'all , as you soar over that shark glance down and see what you were and could have been and try to get back work -if it is not too late. Thank you. Expand

    "Army Wives" is better than it has any right to be.

    “Army Wives” is by no means a perfect show, but there’s a lot of potential material in the lives of these women.

    An earnest soap about women who are scrappy, sensitive, and stoic. [1 Jun 2007, p.64]
