I tried to watch it, and tried to give it a fair chance. But, after being in the Navy, and being a Navy wife for so long (between the 2, over 19 yrs now), and having many friends and family in the Army (and having lived on an Army base), I have to say, I just can't watch it.
There are some good parts, but then they just take it to that next level for the "Hollywood take" that I find insulting and so inaccurate that it just kills the show for me. The scene where the pg wife with 2 little kids (several seasons ago) was being kicked out of her base house right after her dh was killed, and NOBODY on base knew or cared or was doing anything (not to mention that she was being kicked out like that to begin with..) was the final straw for me with the show...
I've heard the book it's based on is good though :-)
