Review:

The dramatic Lifetime soap “Army Wives” follows the trials and tribulations of Roxy a woman who impulsively decides to marry PFC Trevor LeBlanc and moves with her two kids to his army post. During the first season Roxy ends up meeting other wives when she takes a bartending job at “Jody Bar” a place where civilian men go to pick up on enlisted men’s wives. While there she meets Claudia, Pamela and others that form the core characters of the show. They all help each other with their personal issues involving husbands, wives and children. ***

The series which was inspired by a non-fiction book of the same name strayed further from the source material which isn’t a surprise given that the show is in its third season. We get all 18 episodes of season three uncut. ---

Image & Sound:

The third season of the popular Lifetime series arrives on DVD with a nice looking transfer. Colors are strong with nice flesh tones and detail. Edge enhancement crops up on occasion as do other minor compression artifacts. ***

Audio sounds quite good with dialogue crisp and clear throughout. The surround channels occasionally pop to life with full activity but, on the whole, they are restricted to ambient effects. Nevertheless considering that this is a dialogue driven show the 5.1 mix is quite nice. ---

Special Features:

Aside from an exceptionally good featurette “Stationed in the South” where the cast takes us on a personal tour of the city in South Carolina that provides the backdrop for the series, we also get webisodes . We also get blooper and deleted scenes. A commentary track or two would have been a nice addition but on the whole we get some solid if meager extras. ---

Final Words:

Fans of “Army Wives” will want to pick up this set on DVD. The transfer is quite good what’s more we get some nice extras even if they are a bit on the thin side.
