At times, the stories are more raw than what people might expect on a network that's more about feelings than lethal weapons. But it works, with a few fringe benefits besides.
Sure, it's melodramatic, and the gloppy Lilith Fair-era soundtrack music should be court-martialed. But Army Wives is pretty addictive.
This show knows exactly what it is: a soap opera. And it unashamedly exploits the soapiest TV conventions, but at least it does so without making its capable female characters conform to predictable stereotypes.
The series thrives because the ladies are so likable the viewer may feel they can join them for a gossipy dinner or ask them where they got those great shoes.
If Army Wives is political in any way, it is in commenting on how war can ravage even the most serene of families.
Army Wives regularly accomplishes something more politically basic: It portrays working-class lives.
It gets a bit soapy but overall, it's well written, the premise is original and the acting is good.
The episode is loaded with cliches; however, they are forgivable cliches because the wives are so vulnerable, strong and appealing.
[Army Wives] succeeds, in a corny way, and produces a brief but undeniable emotional surge. That's how the show works, as a tribute to the earnest, the unglam, the unsung yet worthy.
