Army Wives

The story of four very different women who all meet at the army post where their husbands are stationed. Denise Sherwood (Catherine Bell) is the perfect wife and mother with a major secret she is hiding. Claudia Joy Holden (Kim Delaney) is the wife of one of the highest ranking officers on post and is looked up to by almost all the other wives. Pamela Moran (Brigid Brannagh) is a woman who does the unthinkable to keep her family out of financial ruin, with a major tarnish to her reputation. Roxy LeBlanc (Sally Pressman) is the newest wife on the block, having just married one of the soldiers after knowing him for four days. There is also an army husband, Roland Burton (Sterling K. Brown) is a psychiatrist whose wife, Joan (Wendy Davis), has just returned, changed, from Iraq. As their lives become intwined what problems will arise for the group.

I really enjoyed this show. It was nice to see two actresses from two of my favorite shows, Catherine Bell from JAG and Kim Delaney from Philly (which was cancelled WAY to soon), back on TV. However, I love Sally Pressman as Roxy. Some people on IMDB have called her character white trash but I see her as a woman who has made mistakes and is now changing her life for the better. I highly recommend this show, good dramas are hard to come by these days.
