While on the post, Roxy meets Claudia Joy Holden, who believes that her husband Colonel Michael Holden's promotion didn't come through because of base politics.

Then there's Denise Sherwood, who is dealing with her son Jeremy's anger-management issues as her strict husband, Major Frank Sherwood, is about to be deployed.

Did You Know?


When Roxy tells Trevor to go home from the hospital she says he can get a few hours sleep before his morning training. Trevor has said that his training is at 6:00 am and the TV news playing in the hospital shows that it is 5:15 am, meaning Trevor had just minutes, not hours, before his training started. See more »

great show
7 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the 1st episode. I am both a former military brat and former military which combined for many years and locations. My father was a field grade Officer when I was growing up and I recognized "attitudes" from those days. Set aside the technical errors and look at the story line. It was funny and very enjoyable. The Roxy and Pam characters are great. Those ladies can play their parts very well. Good direction. Kim Delaney and Catherine Bell play their parts very good but it is a little hard to see Bell playing a submissive woman. Especially after JAG. Kim Delaney plays a strong headed Colonel's wife and we got an indication why. The character was a Yale educated Law Student. They are four very talented women and good looking on top of that. The parts appear to be written exactly for each of them. They can pull them off. Keep up the good work.

I will watch this show for sure.
