  1. I have to say its the DUMBEST show Lifetime has put out. As a former Army wife of someone who spent 20 years in and this doesn’t even come close. Why didn’t Lifetime make a show about REAL Army wives and their lives while their husbands are off to Iraq or the other short tours of duty to either other countries, schools and other such things? Why make a show where the acting blows and the situations are just stupid. If they are gonna make a show on Army wives, make it more realistic. The guys don’t even wear their hair in a buzzcut. This show is joke and I am never watching it again. Producers of this show, do us all a favor and take this crap off. Make a REAL show about Army wives, follow them around in their day to day routine, show what goes on when the guys are away at war. No one ever takes a look at how the spouses of those deployed handle life when the military spouse is deployed. It’s hard. Why didn’t you do that instead of making a stupid show? I HATE the way this show makes enlisted Army wives look cheap and stupid. The one thing they did get right in this show was making the officers wives snobby. Officer wives wore their husbands rank. I always hated that. By the way,if you want to have a show that makes people laugh,follow an Air Force wife around and watch her fall apart when her husband goes off for 3 days! LOL

  2. I am not an army wife, so I have no idea how real it is or otherwise, but I think it’s a great show. I look foreward to it every Sunday. Good job Lifetime!!

  3. This show rocks! There is nothing like it on TV. The characters are fantastic. The acting is great. The storylines are compelling. The music is very original and new. It really sucks you in. My wive was is in the military and this really hits home. Very accurate in so many ways. I can’t miss an episode. It is obvious why this show is such a big hit. Keep it coming. Awesome work!!!

  4. is army wive going have a second season
    because me and my wife every sunday night
    dont want come to the end

  5. this show rock_n_roll every sunday night i hope they keep go for sec season

  6. I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!I’m so sad it has come to an end for this season. So what if it’s not accurate on what happens the characters aren’t reall anyway. I think the acting is wonderful and they couldn’t have picked a better cast. The storyline is the best i’ve seen in a while and i don’t even like tv dramas i just love this show

  7. I watched the army wives, as a new army wife, I have already been 2 places in 1 year. My hub is off to Iraq in less than that.
    My husband is an officer, I dont wear his rank. I did not earn it, he did.
    Just because my husband is an officer dosent mean I have the right to be a snob, and I wont. I have friends that are enlisted dependants, and their biggest complaint is the ENLISTED wives trying to pull their husbands rank amoung the housing.Get a HOBBY ladies, and just be nice to each other, enlisted and commissioned alike, we are all in this together, and we can do more together, than we can fighting about unimportant things like, MONEY??? We all shop at the commisary and we all have husbands who could be taken away in the blink of an eye. The taliban dosent care who is an officer and who isn’t.
    So watch the show or not, but let the rest of us who like to do so. (and that is an order)

  8. as a army wife i love that show, yes its not accurate but come on guys what show is? it is good to have a show finally about us ( army wives ) if you dont like the show by all means dont watch it.. i personally CANT WAIT for the next season !!!!
    xoxox,
    a sgts sweetheart

  9. The show depicts enlisted wives as stupid because quite frankly they are. These women aren’t even smart enough to force their underpaid hit men into the higher paying officer ranks. Any simpleton can become an officer especially right now when so many troops are being killed off or critically wounded. I think any show which depicts the true misery, conjugal deprivation and bottom feeder status of all military members is a great show. Who in their right mind aspires to be a military member? The ranks are all meaningless and the war college degrees are worthless. I’ve been married for 20+ years to a career officer and it sucks! The military is comprised of under served communities never the rich, highly iq’d and not the politicians. No one wants to do this job. Except uninformed, ignorant trailer trash who are easily manipulated. The military is a dangerous mind control cult. Expecting its members to die, kill others and give up their lives for the mission. Killing others for the profits of War Biz, Inc not any type of American freedoms what so ever. If these wives had a clue they would be trying to get their husbands out of the game for good and save their lives. Also military members have the worse self esteem and need help returning to college to get grad or master’s degrees in relevant , real professions which help positively impact the global community. As VETS we see how the military quickly processes out the war wounded so that they don’t have to give them a high enough percentage of disability. VETS are throw out like trash. Benefits denied or delayed. This career sucks. I wouldn’t recommend it to any intelligent, beautiful woman with options. Unless you will enjoy having your man exploited and returned as damaged goods of the person you once loved. I wouldn’t recommend the military as a career option because the pay definitely sucks. They play a shell game with so called bonuses and allowances but that is what they should be paying our husbands plus 50% more for being their hired assassins! I wouldn’t recommend the military unless you enjoy being married to convicted chain gang prisoners , desperately seek conjugal deprivation , isolation and neglect. I chose to stay in the marriage, however I’m one of three out of over 300 officers wives that were my close friends who is still married…

  29. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
