I know I've made my love for Army Wives known, so I won't continue to expound on the numerous ways this Lifetime show surprises me. Sure, it dips into the ordinary melodramatic territory that seems to be Lifetime's specialty, but it also touches on some important issues and often makes for riveting TV. The cliffhanger from the first season, when a bomber finds his way to the women's favorite watering hole — especially set to an eerie, slowed-down version of "Goodbye, Stranger" — left me literally holding my breath.
In tonight's season premiere, the women (and Roland) deal with the aftermath of this bombing as we discover what, exactly, went on that day in the bar. You can watch the first four minutes or so of the episode (which is already getting me right in the feelings) here.
Also, random fact: Senators Barack Obama and John McCain have publicly voiced their appreciation for this show. You can see their videos via that same link above, or just click here.
