my only concern is instead of going in direction of --just sex !
i would like to see more family direction- the kids - what is happening with son that went away to join military - no one even talks about missing him or how he is - the daughter that was in love with him and had sex before he left for military - the little kids that some have -- all the wives go thru trying to do everything and keep the family solid - the program last week was like all they each do is have sex or talk about sex- we want to see this program make it to the leading show - so just give us a little more real life struggles and concerns and issues- because this show -is A WINNER !
I do love this show, but I do have to state my opinion on something. I already believed this before, but now I believe it even more.....having a child when you are in the military, knowing that you will be sent away for large portions of their lives seems very selfish to me. This is only my opinion. Those children don't deserve all the missed birthdays, plays, holidays, or just everyday interaction. A wife, well she can make that decision herself as to whether she can handle the away time, the children don't have the choice. I cry almost every time one of those kids cries because their parent is leaving or dead.

I couldn't take my eyes off this show! You know how when you're driving down the road and come upon an accident? You don't really want to stare at those poor people but just can't help yourself. I've never seen such an outrageously inaccurate representation of Army life! The technical advisers should be fired and replaced. Even the simplest protocols are not correctly represented here. Sappy, soapy, overly dramatic plot lines are to be expected from any show produced by or for the Lifetime Channel. And, I understand the concept of dramatic license, but this thing is way over the line.
I couldn't resist calling my daughter-in-law to find out if she's ever seen the show. She said she tried to watch the premier but turned it off and went to bed about 45 minutes in. She hasn't watched it since.
I'm thinking that real Army wives ought to be insulted by this show; which should be retitled "Wannabe Desperate Housewives."
All I can say is: WOW what an incredible show. I don't even care if it's considered a chick flick. The show is so realistic with how it displays the Army life. Even having been in the Army, I didn't realize that the wives/caregivers had to do almost as much as we had to.
The way this show brings up the emotions is incredible. The emotions never feel forced like how some actors are when they have to cry. This seems all too natural. I definitely recommend to anyone, but especially if you were or are in the Army. Check it out.
With love and respect, Jaimie
