Last August, when Season 4 of Army Wives ended, it seemed like the end of the series. I was shocked when we had a Season 5, which ended last night... again, looking like the show was over. But I see that Lifetime has seemingly renewed the series for 13 more episodes.
Honestly, I don't know why they're bothering with it. Last night's episode was totally lame. They ended the season like they began season 1, with everybody at a dining out and everybody getting news about their future... along with the news that fictional Fort Marshall is about to close because of BRAC. BRAC is a big thing to military folks... it's the reason why my husband and I had to move after just eighteen months in our last location. The military installation where he was working is being phased out.
I don't know... I am disgusted with the show, but will probably watch it next year because I've been watching it all along. It seems wrong to give up on it. On the other hand, I watched ER from the beginning and then took a few years off. And ER was a much better show than Army Wives has ever been.
I just wish the writers would either get their acts together or they'd just pull the plug on the show.
