Army Wives > Army Wives Review: Haven't We Been Here Before? > Comments Page 3
Carissa, you're totally right! I haven't enjoyed AW this season like I used to. This show is declining I don't even know why they added more episodes. They should toss it and instead give more episodes to Drop Dead Diva which gets better and better every season.
First of all, it's good for a show to get new characters-- it keeps things from getting stale. Personally, I love Gloria (I'm originally from Brooklyn) but she certainly deserves a prince, not Hector. I hope she'll get with the wounded guy, who was Trevor's friend, after he takes that instructor's job. I don't think that Jackie Clark and Hubby are bad characters-- they just don't have any chemistry with the others on the show. Also, Roland just keeps sitting on the sidelines like a pitch-hitter. He's simply too terrific to keep in the background like that.
Whatever happened to Claudia Joy? Or Charlie and her partner? Lastly, it bugs me that they keep killing/wounding characters with "domestic terrorism".
They did it with Emmalyn and once was enough. Denise already lost her son; why should she lose Frank, too? These writers can't seem to come up with anything new!! Well, let's see what unfolds in the next 4 episodes.
I do watch each week waiting for that old spark to come back. So far, not so much. Why not try some new writers? These just add people but they need that original feeling of friends supporting each other. Need Pam back.
I kept thinking they are setting it all up for this to be the last season. Michael is the one shot and either dies or retires, Frank gets into war school so him and Denise take off, Trevor decides he wants to be with his family more so takes the job with Chase, Joan gets reassigned because of the fiasco. All the army wives follow their spouses and go their separate ways. Jackie and Gloria are new and easy to wrap up because nobody cares. JMO.
It's hard to believe that so many people keep dying in this series. And not in a War Zone! Really! I agree with what's been said. The fans would do a much better job of writing than the writers they have now. And at the end of this episode, it sounded like there ARE only four episodes left...in the series, not just the season. What a shame! Not for this season but for the previous seasons.
i still look forward to watching this every sunday but i totally agree. i think jackie & kevin need to go and pamela and chase should come back. As far as hector gloria needs to divorce his ass!!
I have been saying since Pamela left that this season is bad, but I was just attacked and told no its not, but now everyone wants to start saying its bad, ok sure.
This season is bad because the friendship between the group feels force now, I like gloria and she does fit in but Jackie does not fit in and her and denise do not have chemistry together. roland dosent seem to fit in anymore with the girls, I just feel when Pamela left, the friendship between the group somehow just dosent connect anymore.
and is this really the last season because in the previews last night they said 4 epiosdes before it all ends????
Didn't watch the show because I forgot it was on. This tells you something as I couldn't wait for the next episode. I miss the original way it was written, the story lines and the way the characters interacted. I miss Claudia Joy, Pamela and I loved Denise and Roxy and the friendship between them. When the reruns come out I will not watch this season of shows.
Some one needs to fire the writers of this show. I was just so fustrared after last nights show. Denise is a nurse. Why was she not aloud near Frank after he was shot? I am so tired of not having the central character of CJ in the show. The writers have taken a feel good every week show and tanked it into an unbelievable attack on certain families within the shows core!
Not much else to say that hasn't already been said. Need to toss Hector out without so much as a "goodbye." Seriously, I wanted Gloria to slap him when he tried that "I love you" CRAP as she was leaving. Good for her! However, unlike another fan, I don't want her to be pregnant alongside Penny. I don't want ANY reason for Hector to be in the picture anymore.
And yes, FOUR boys for Roxie is a bit much. However, does anyone remember Drew Fuller's run on "Charmed"? His character's older brother was named Wyatt, which was the baby they did get to take home last night. Had to smile at that.
If Frank getting shot isn't a good enough reason to bring CJ back for Denise to lean on, I don't know what is. Those two ladies have been to hell and back together. If they kill Frank I am gonna be SO PO-ed at the writers too. I'd rather see Jackie lose Kevin than Denise lose Frank. At least Jackie has her kids for support.
I miss the interaction between the friends as well but appreciate new characters. I think that Gloria and Penny will bond and bet that Gloria is pregnant too. I still love the show, but Claudia Joy had better come back and Frank needs to be ok or I'm done. Killing Jeremy and Frank would be too much!
Totally agree with all of the above. I have loved this show since the beginning until recently. What has happened? I continue to watch with hopes of it getting better only to be so disappointed. So often, shows start out with great gusto then the writers just lose it. It's been the demise of many a great show and I can see doom for this one for those reasons. If they think replacing Pamela & Chase with Jackie Clark & Gloria whatever, ick! They both make my teeth hurt. I can't hardly tolerate their characters, either of them. This makes me so sad...
WHERE'S CJ? HOPE FRANK LIVES GLORIA NEED TO DIVORCE THAT PEICE OF CRAP HECTOR
First, what is going on with Kim Delaney? It is getting harder to believe that her frequent absences on the show don't have anything to do with the incoherent speech she made (before having to be be escorted off the stage) at the Philadelphia National Constitution Center on 9/22/11.
Also, in last night's episode the indication was that Colonel Sherwood was severly wounded by a terrorist gunman when he jumped in front of General Holden to protect him. Are you kidding me?? Not long ago, he and his wife, Denise went through the ultimate anguish of having their son KIA. Then Denise was seriously injured in the storm and Molly, their infant daughter, became gravely ill and almost died. What's next for this family - a fatal car crash that does them all in? I think they need to let up on the Sherwood family. It's really starting to get old. And the young Hispanic couple - after last night's episode, is their anyone who doesn't want the wife to divorce that jerk as quickly as possible? That
I agree that the show is all over the place. Isn't there some way that the character of Pamela and her family could return to the show. I loved the original premise that these five vastly different people could be such close friends. Now there seems to be scurrying around trying to fill vacant spots. I missed an hour of the Olympics to watch this (but I did tape it.) Jackie and Gloria have so very quickly fallen into the supposedly close-knit circle of friends, there was nothing that happened that should have brought them in so close so rapidly. I still don't like Gloria, it is painful to listen to her talk!
I agree with your review 100%. I still look forward to Sunday nights, but the show has disappointed more than once this season. Claudia Joy is such an important role and with her gone it just seems empty. How come Molly didn't get older in that 5 month jump??? I sure hope the writers can get their act together as I would hate to see the demise of this show.
When Brigid Brannagh left the show (for whatever reason), I lost total interest in Army Wives. Wish she would do another movie or a show of her own.
This has been one of my favorite shows, but it's just gone down the tubes. The story lines have been all over the place, and the conspicuous absence of Kim Delaney just makes things worse. The scenes between Claudia Joy and Denise were always the best of the show, and without them, the show lacks heart.
Even if I suspend reality for an hour this just borders on ridiculous now. Carrying a baby out of the operating room in a blanket and down the hall in a hospital?? Seriously? The allowing of the general public on to a non tradoc post for a celebration without so much security that it would make your eyes spin in their sockets??? Wow. I guess the writers just get to write whatever they want now with no regard for blatant ignorance for the truth. Shame on army wives. It used to be an awesome show. Now it is flaming out.
I totally am with you on this. I didn't watch much of last season for personal reasons and those were there this season as well. I just couldn't bring myself to continue watching. Things just have gone downhill and I haven't been a fan for a while. I watched 3 episodes ago and just couldn't get into it. It's sad because while my husband was deployed this show got me through. It kind of felt like another support system and to watch it stray from it's core beliefs well it's sad.
