Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
The Army wives face all sorts of challenges in trying to fit in, stay connected with their soldier spouses, and abide by strict military traditions. As the season unfolds, these characters will form an unlikely alliance as they help one another through the unthinkable and protect each other's darkest secrets. There's Claudia Joy Holden (the strong and respected wife), Denise Sherwood (the devoted homemaker with a troubled teen), Pamela Moran (a woman struggling to keep her family from financial doom), Roxy LeBlanc (a mom who married a soldier after a four-day courtship), and Roland Brown (a psychiatrist whose traumatized wife just returned from serving in Afghanistan). They may come from different places, but these characters create unbreakable bonds. And each of them knows one thing for sure: The Army has its code. The wives have their own.
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoA Tribe Is Born||After only a four-day courtship, Roxy impetuously decides to marry Pfc. Trevor LeBlanc and moves with her two kids to his Army post. Floundering in her new life as an Army wife, she takes a job bartending at a local joint known for being a Jody bar (where civilian men go to hit on enlisted men's wives). While on the post, Roxy meets Claudia Joy Holden, who believes that her husband Col. Michael Holden's promotion didn't come through because of base politics. Another Army wife, Pamela Moran, is heavily pregnant with twins -- she's secretly acting as a surrogate to get her family out of debt. Meanwhile, psychiatrist Roland Burton is trying hard to reconnect with his wife, Lt. Col. Joan Burton, who has just returned from Afghanistan. Then there's Denise Sherwood, who is dealing with her son Jeremy's anger-management issues as her strict husband, Maj. Frank Sherwood, is about to be deployed. The unlikely group bonds when Pamela unexpectedly goes into labor at Claudia Joy's wives' tea party. Not wanting everyone to know her family's dire financial situation, Pamela relies on these new friends to keep her surrogacy from being exposed.||42:44||$2.99||View In iTunes|

Totally great show
The first time I watched this show it was on accident and in the middle of the first episode.I finally saw the first episode from the beginning and got hooked. I come from a military family and am now married to a solider. This show will help the spouses understand a little bit of what it's like being away for them when they are away.It also has just about every family situation that you can imagine.I found that I actually have a small piece of each character in myself... I actually got my husband to watch it with me. Every Sunday night at 10 we would watch it together and then have a discussion. With him being in the army he would explain everything to me. Yeah..guys...if your wife is in the military...check out Roland. I would tell anyone especially...the "Army Wives" to watch it. Can't wait for Season 2.
Not just a show for women...
I just happened to luck into watching this show when the first episode aired. What a great surprise it was! It's smart, touching, funny, and very well written. There were also great songs used in the series (many of which I bought on itunes). My husband often watched with me and enjoyed the show almost as much as I did. I can't wait until season two and I highly recommend every episode of season one.
I remember this summer when I was in Georgia spending time with my family before school started again how everyone was praising this show, and I was like, "I'll admit that Lifetime has good movies, but t.v. shows, and it's about the army, I don't think so." But one night when they aired the two recent episodes and then the new one, I was hooked. I watched it every week. I couldn't believe that I, a 15 year-old, could enjoy a show like this. I mean, I have all the seasons of The O.C. and One Tree Hill in my closet, and now I'm watching a show about Army wives, but I have to say, this show is amazing. Believe it or not, my step-aunt and her husband just got from serving a term over in Iraq and her mother said it just takes the way the Army is and shows you what the families go through and the way they all bond and everything. It's a great show, and I can't wait for the second to come. All hail Army Wives.
