Do You Watch Army Wives on Lifetime?

I'm way behind. You all were chatting about Army Wives coming back for Season two in the comments last week, and my interest was piqued. I caught the encore of the season premiere last night, and I clearly have catching up to do.

The New York Times latest review makes it sound like a show with a complex message saying, ". . . at the heart of the show is a deep skepticism about the psychological impact of military culture on family life, a distaste for the brand of masculinity it breeds. . . Army Wives reminds you how rare it is on television to bear witness to the shoddily appointed space. And how rarer still to see women who don’t know a whit about labels."

And uh, the scene with Roxy and her husband on the video? And the husband who was crying by his daughter's bedside? Amanda? Who is this? Help! I think I'm hooked. Plus John McCain watches it with Cindy. Are you a fan? Do we need to watch and recap? Will you fill me in on what I've missed?

Army Wives is a great show! You'll need to catch up though, a lot happened in the first season, I'd Netflix the first season and Tivo the current eps, then you can watch the first season first.

Hey Jill, since you are our resident Obama expert, did Obama ever give an answer to McCain about that joint townhall meeting idea? I never heard anything. I know its probably 90% political posturing from McCain, but I still thought it sounded like a neat forum for voters... what do you think?

You know, I have to say (with a little bit of shame) that I dismissed this show at first, thinking it would be just another sappy Lifetime show. And then I watched it. And I loved it. Like, love-love-loved it. So, with chagrin, I take back all my preemptive criticism! It's just really interesting. And I often hear people say how many things are not realistic about it, but then again, I'm pretty sure Seattle Grace isn't a starkly honest portrayal of a hospital staff (and not every doctor looks like Katherine Heigl!).

Cabaker, you are hysterical! The show did very well last night, 4.5 million viewers. This is big for Lifetime! I think the success of this show combined with the success of Sex and the City movie will cause more studios to scour their libraries for female oriented content. It is like they just realized they can make money off of us if they offer something that is not just another romantic comedy.

I wonder if the McCain's REALLY watch it... if I go to a townhall meeting with Johnny Mac I'm going to ask him a very specific storyline question and but that shizz wide open!

Yay! I LOVE Army Wives. I wrote a blog about it last week: I think the show is so well written and acted, and yes its corny at times, but in that awesome Lifetime kind of way. Most of the military wives I know love the show and I'm always surprised how many people with no affiliation to the military love the show! Yes it can be overly dramatic and cheesy, but many of the issues are the same that military wives deal with every day.
