'Army Wives: The Complete Third Season'
(Brian McNamara, Catherine Bell, Kim Delaney, Brigid Brannagh, Wendy Davis, et al / 5-DVD / NR / 2010 / ABC Studios)
Overview: Experience the unexpected moments in this heartfelt drama that has won the acclaim of fans and critics all across America. Go inside the inspiring lives of five amazing military families with the third season of ARMY WIVES.
DVD: 'Army Wives' is one of the best shows out there anywhere - and the best show that realistically conveys life on a military base since "Call to Glory." I was an Army dependent for over 20 years and am an Army Veteran. The only aspect that I found slightly off was the closeness of the lower enlisted wives with the upper officers' wives. However, it has been over 10 years since my father retired, so things may have changed. That being said, the show really dipicts the everyday life on an Army post exceptionally well.
Anyway, as you can tell from my gushing above, I absolutely fell in love with this show from episode one. We always hear and see stuff about the soldiers, but we never really see what they have behind them: their families. This show really gives us insight in to the military life. Of course, some things are going to be over the top, but that is what makes the show great. I would recommend this show to anyone who wants to watch a heart felt, woman powered, family oriented, full of emotion, militray style show that can make you empathize with people you have never met.
In season three, it is a new year of challanges for the Army Wives as Denise and Frank fight to save their marriage and Claudia Joy discovers a life-changing personal truth of her own! Newly promoted Joan wrestles with a major decision that affects her husband and new baby, while Roland imagines what his life would be like had he taken a different path. Pamela questions Chase's family commitment after he returns from capture and Roxy encounters unexpected new responsibilities as Trevor explores a new job in the army.
OK, so it's also obvious that I own the first two seasons and have watched the third on Lifetime in it's fullest majestry before this box-set came out, but still, wow, I love the show to bits (can you tell!). It is a great show and this season was just as good as the first two seasons. It is however a few episodes shorter than the last. This seasons finale has to be one of the biggest cliff hangers that I've seen and I can't wait until April for the new season to start. I originally got hooked on this show because of my boyfriend and have watched it religiously ever since. I now have got my mother and my brother-in-law hooked on this show as well.
