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?
