5.0 out of 5 stars Army Wives Season 1 Aug. 23 2010
I watched the whole first season on Sunday. My only complaint was that it only had 13 episodes. I cannot get lifetime tv, so I had caught a couple of episodes in rerun on a local station. I liked the story line so much that I ordered season 1. I love the mix of characters, the mix of ranks, and all the little quirky things that happen. (gossip) Good to see no one is perfect, and the the drama is good. Going to order season 2 & 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good show, but somethings missing. May 24 2013
By melty87
I really enjoyed the show, however I did feel it lacked a little excitement, some of the characters are a little boring. I hope the next season has more to offer. As far as leaving you on the tip of your seat, I didn't feel that way, but I looked forward to watching before bed to get relaxed! I will purchase season 2 based on season 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wives is the female side of Miltary Life April 22 2008
By Bennet Pomerantz - Published on Amazon.com
Someone said the women are what is left behind when men go to war. If this is so, Army Wives is a great examples of the homefront.

I watched the whole first season on demand cable, since my advance copy of the DVD was not available yet. I was amazed with the depth of the storytelling of this series. These 13 episodes were not soap opera-ish, as I thought they might be. What annoys me is such shows like the Unit which touches the same subject matter and I have seen weaken by the way they tell the story in their show. You wont find that here, the show is told with a female point of view. However The storylines seem real as if the screenwriters have written and lived it!

The cast lead by Catherine Bell and Kim Delaney makes this cast cook in a way I have not seen a cast mesh together this well in a long time.

This is good television. I only wish it was more than 13 episodes. But in these 13 episodes is a class act.

I cant wait until June for the second season

5.0 out of 5 stars Far better than I would have expected! June 29 2008
By Don't tread on me - Published on Amazon.com
I am a conservative, pro military and a former US Navy sailor. When my wife first introduced me to Army Wives, I was immediately suspicious. My experience with Lifetime network is that most shows have a liberal theme, man bash or other aspect that I don't care for. Army Wives was a VERY pleasant surprise. The show deals, in my opinion, very realisticly with military life. There is no political theme to this. It is not out to bash the military or even any politicians.
As a conservative and veteran, I would recommend this show to any and all to watch whether you are liberal, conservative, middle of the road, etc. The show is not a political statement, it is a well done drama that deserves the positive attention it is getting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Army Wives is the best show!!! April 12 2008
By Kristen Maloney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Army Wives was named one of the top 10 shows of 2007 for a reason. The show is extremely well written and has an awesome ensemble cast!! For those who are JAG fans (like myself) you will get to see Catherine Bell (Mac of JAG). CB and everyone on the show do a beautiful job of depicting life for military spouses. It does have alot of drama but it also has very humorous parts as well. The season 1 cliffhanger will have you shaking your heads and therefore make you long for season 2 to start!!! The Season 1 DVD has alot of extras, such as behind the scenes and outakes. AW is well worth buying!!! You will not be disappointed!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Army Wives Season 1 - AMAZING! April 21 2008
By C. Dube - Published on Amazon.com
This show is amazing. It's a little unrealistic in some respects (as far as the military goes), but other than that - it's fantastic! It's Desperate Housewives meets JAG - it's funny, emotionally heart-wrenching, and touching all at the same time. Once you watch it, you'll laugh, you'll cry...and you'll want to buy the DVDs! You wont regret buying this DVD set - it's entertaining and also gives you insight into some aspects of military life. If I could give it more stars, I would!

4.0 out of 5 stars A show about family, friends, and the military July 6 2008
By K. Hinton - Published on Amazon.com
Army Wives is the story of a group of four soldiers' wives and one soldier's husband located at Fort Marshall in South Carolina. This series is based on the book of the same title by Tanya Biank, Army Wives: The Unwritten Code of Military Marriage.

The series begins with Roxy, a smart-mouthed bartender who decides to marry private first class Trevor LeBlanc only a week after their courtship begins. Roxy has two kids by two different fathers and Trevor offers her stability, love, and a real family. She also knows nothing about the Army and is used to taking care of herself. Watching Roxy learn the trials and tribulations that come with being an army wife gives civilians who have no idea about it an insider's look. Then there are the more established wives like Claudia Joy Holden, whose husband is one of the highest ranking officers on post. He has also recently been overlooked for a position because one of the other wives called him a racist--something Claudia Joy won't take lying down. Also, there's Denise Sherwood, a sweet, kind woman whose teenage son often takes advantage of his mother's kind nature. Denise's husband is a major and he's overseas more than at home, but their marriage seems solid. And finally there's Pamela Moran, an ex-cop whose husband is in special ops. Pamela is heavily pregnant at the beginning of the series and we learn that it's because she's a surrogate who needs the money to get her family out of debt. The only army husband on the show, Roland Burton, is a psychiatrist specializing in post-traumatic stress. His wife is one of the highest ranking women on post. This ragtag bunch of "army wives" makes friends with one another despite their spouses' ranks, their own backgrounds, and their differences. They accept one another and the responsibility that comes with supporting the soldiers they're married to.

When I first started watching this show, I'll admit it was because I think that most things on Lifetime are a train wreck and I wanted to see the carnage. But this show is surprisingly good for the network that gave us such hits as Death of a Cheerleader (True Stories Collection TV Movie) and Sex & The Single Mom. Army Wives is touching, dramatic, and entertaining. This is a story about real women, real marriages, and real lives that only happens to be airing on Lifetime. These characters go through everyday situations with the added pressure of having their actions put under the microscope because of their husband's or wife's profession. They have all the normal problems that regular marriages do: slow sex drives, thoughts of adultery, working outside the home, troubled children, they just have to do it under more intense scrutiny. I urge everyone to give this series a chance rather than just shrugging it off because it's on Lifetime. I'm certainly glad that I did. Army Wives has the girl talk from a show like Sex and the City with the drama of a series like Law and Order and manages to blend the two into a fun, heartening series that anyone can enjoy. I look forward to watching season 2.
