      Previous Maureen Ryan Chicago Tribune 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 Amy Amatangelo Boston Herald 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 David Hinckley New York Daily News 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 Alan Pergament Buffalo News The episode is loaded with cliches; however, they are forgivable cliches because the wives are so vulnerable, strong and appealing. 2.5/4 Oct 18, 2019 Full Review People Staff People Magazine [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 Kelly West CinemaBlend 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 Read all reviews Next

      Previous Louise C Season Two was even better than the first! The writers managed to develop the main characters while expanding the story arc. My interest was kept because there was always something new, with a few surprises / shocks along the way. All of the cast maintained excellent performances, which made viewing most enjoyable. 9/10 stars from me. Watched on Disney+ in NZ. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/16/23 Full Review Next Post a review
