  1. 88
    The writing's crisp and the acting is first-rate.
  2. 80
    A tightly woven, watchable melodrama that connects an eclectic but friendly bunch of women through maybe the only thing they could possibly have in common: being married to the military.
  3. 75
    A satisfyingly meaty drama. [11 Jun 2007, p.41]

    The intimate moments have a gutsy realness, and the central characterizations are bedrock enough to sell us through the stereotypes.
  5. 63
    "Army Wives" is better than it has any right to be.
  6. 60
    Television needs a stronger series on the subject, and military families deserve something better.

    A stereotypical sudser that wants to be "From Here to Eternity" but feels like "All My Children: Military Edition."
