Critic Reviews for Army Wives Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

While lacking the satirical humor of [Desperate] Housewives and the edge of [The] Unit, the show is serviceable in its storytelling, quite well-done in its production and better than well-done in its acting.

Stand ready to salute the best new drama series in Lifetime's lifetime.

Top Critic

The show succeeds on a number of levels and builds on a well-crafted premise pilot.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

At a certain point, the soapy qualities could kick in and bring these characters to life, but as it stands, Army Wives feels as empty as expressing "Support the troops" sentiments on a bumper sticker.

Top Critic

The effects of war on the home front are unmistakable and are dealt with in a surprisingly straightforward manner.

May 31, 2007 | Full Review…

It tells entertaining stories that combine fiction with the very real drama associated with marrying into a military life.

May 31, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Army Wives is evidence of the channel's good shopping sense as opposed to production savvy.

May 31, 2007 | Full Review…

The Army wives know how to make it last.

May 30, 2007 | Full Review…

The producers of Army Wives seem determined to deliver a conscientious depiction of life for military families. They need to remember they aren't making a documentary.

Oct 18, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

There's absolutely nothing wrong with a good soap opera. It's just that Army Wives doesn't start out as a particularly good soap opera.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

What begins as a guilty pleasure becomes a legitimately enthralling series by the end of its fourth episode.

Oct 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Army Wives offers an intriguing premise that's bogged down in its execution by uninspired, unimaginative stories.
