Army Wives

Though similar in premise to CBS' "The Unit," which splits its focus between military men and their families, "Army Wives" felt more like "Desperate Housewives" or "Sex and the City" but with a dark, almost gothic twist. Especially given the subject matter, it was gloriously strange. Over the course of the season, though, the show leveled off to become a conventional, often gripping family drama -- although it is set in and around a military base, in the shadow of war, "Army Wives" is little concerned with politics.

I love this show, it's got all the great tv drama qualities, I get so excited for it to come on and then as it's going off I always think, wait it hasn't been an hour yet! New episodes come on at 9pm Sunday nights on Lifetime.

If you're aren't should be!
