Critic Reviews for Army Wives Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

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.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Sure, it's melodramatic, and the gloppy Lilith Fair-era soundtrack music should be court-martialed. But Army Wives is pretty addictive.

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

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.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

If Army Wives is political in any way, it is in commenting on how war can ravage even the most serene of families.

Jun 8, 2008 | Full Review…

Army Wives regularly accomplishes something more politically basic: It portrays working-class lives.

Jun 7, 2009 | Full Review…

It gets a bit soapy but overall, it's well written, the premise is original and the acting is good.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

The episode is loaded with cliches; however, they are forgivable cliches because the wives are so vulnerable, strong and appealing.

Oct 18, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

[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.

Oct 18, 2019 | Full Review…

I guess I've never understood the allure of Army Wives.
