Immediately hooked

This series grabbed my attention from the first show. I had not discovered it on cable and found it when I was looking for shows with Catherine Bell from the discontinued JAG series. I've watched the first and third season and will purchase the rest of the seasons. One of my close friends is a military wife of a high ranking officer and through the years I've heard her say many of the things the wives on this series say. The expectations of her children are very similar to the children on this series. It has made many of the things I've wondered about with my friend so much clearer. I can only assume that the writers have a pretty good understanding of military life.

My only concern at this point is that it has the feel of an upgraded soap opera, which I don't like, but the shows are entertaining and seem to reflect what must be some authenticity of military life. I find it remarkable that so many main characters have lasted so long on one show. I understand that in the 2012 season one of the wives will be leaving. As I said earlier I will buy all the seasons and thoroughly enjoy watching the shows.

Amazing!
Verified purchase
It's funny because I'm active duty Navy currently and my husband is Army reserve. We joke that I'm an Army wife and my husband is a Navy husband! I've heard bits and pieces about this series over the years, but never really had the desire to watch it. For my birthday I got a Kindle Fire and was looking for different series to stream and thought to myself, why not? I fell in love after the first episode! I found myself laughing, crying, and frazzled all within an hour and I loved it!

The characters are all very relatable and the acting is superb. If an actor can make you love or hate them within minutes of meeting them, they're doing something right in my opinion! Although being a military spouse is difficult, you can't help but love how tight nit the community is and the awesome relationships that can come from both pain and happiness. This series does an amazing job portraying that and I'd highly recommend it to anyone, military or civilian.

Once you start watching, you can't stop...

I bought this series cause a friend recommended it to me. And let me tell you she was completely right when she told me I was going to become an addict to it.
Being a Army Wife myself, I have to recognize that there are certain things in the script that are a little bit different from the real Army Life and the Army Policies, Procedures and way to handle things. Anyway we all know it's all been adapted with purposes of entertainment. We all know that right? But on the other side, I think that the main message is clear and successfully delivered. Be and Army Wife is a though hard job! We marry a soldier = we marry the Military. It requires unexplainable amounts of sacrifices, we have to live and accept plenty of unexpected experiences and move on just for one worth cause... The LOVE for our Service Member. And that message is definetly in this Series with this awesome cast which whom we can easily identify ourselves. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll feel anger, frustration, fear... It really appeals to the emotions of the audience. It's doesn't matter if you are an Army wife or not, you will love this series and once you finish, you'll want more!

Fabtastic series
Verified purchase
If u have ever been an Army wife, as I was during the Vietnam War, you will become quickly addicted to this fabulous series. I cannot say enough as to how GREAT this series is, except Kim Delaney, in my book, over acts. But don't let that deter you..this is one series to add to your do not miss list.

Thumbs down.
Verified purchase
Most exaggerated and unrealistic and an insult to the real military families. Wasted 9.00 dollars. Quit watching at part one episode 2. My mom gave me a brief overview of every episode. This has to be the crappiest fiction I've ever watched. Someone needs to do a true to life documentary on the frustrations of going through the V.A.

Great Show with Strong Female Cast
Verified purchase
This show was so unexpectedly good, considering it originally aired on LifeTime. Lots of strong female characters, and a pretty good portrayal of everyday struggles, like getting food on the dinner table, doing laundry, dealing with spouses who aren't around nearly enough, etc. I learned a fair bit about the Army, too (though I suspect that their housing isn't actually that nice in real life!)

Things are making a little more sense now....
Verified purchase
I found this show half way through the 3rd season, and fell in love. It makes me cry almost every episode, but that is part of why I like it. The women in this show make me feel normal again. The people around me, for the most part, wouldn't understand things like being careful about how you wake someone up, unless they are one of the soldiers. Missing someone and hoping they are still okay too. Although lately there seem to be more people that get this one. I might not be an army wife, and I might not live on a base, but there are lots of people like me out there, that have friends and family that aren't active unless they are deployed. Or have friends that are active but they aren't a dependent of. At least for me, this show gives me an outlet for the emotions that my friends don't understand.
