Typical Lifetime trash
14 June 2008 | by (Rhode Island, United States) – See all my reviews

I understand Army Wives is a significant departure from the standard Lifetime fare. I assume that's why the premiere of its second season scored record-breaking ratings. Most of the women's cable channel productions are meant for stay-at-home wives and mothers, and females who enjoy stories about being victimized. This one, however, reaches new lows: bad acting, worse writing and a bad plot line. I think soap operas are better than this and I don't even watch them. The chilling message in "A Teacher's Crime" is that teachers should not get close to or go above and beyond to help their students or they might wind up being accused of having affairs with them. Instead of being dedicated to their profession, public school teachers who watch this may decide that they should just put in the time until they retire, collect their benefits and retire with big pensions at taxpayers' expense.

Ironically, I watched this movie on Father's Day weekend when Lifetime was showing "good dad, bad dad" fare. The emphasis apparently is "bad dad," standard for this male-hating cable channel.
