Review:

Army Wives airs on Lifetime and it is easy to see why it is so popular. It is touching, the plot lines are interesting, and you easily get attached to the characters. This season starts off with Denise and Frank dealing with their new baby, and Jeremy's upcoming wedding. Claudia Joy is getting ready to send her oldest daughter off to college. Pamela has to decide whether she wants to be with Chase or to take a job with Atlanta PD. Roxy is having problems dealing with her teenage son. Plus Joan has recovered from her brain injuries and is thinking of going into retirement. The highlight of the season is episode four, On Behalf of a Grateful Nation, which is a powerful and shocking episode. That is all I am going to say about this season because after the fourth episode I will be getting into major spoiler territory. The cast and crew have gotten better over the years and it is a show that is consistently good.

Special Features:

The extras this time around are 18 deleted scenes spread all across the three disc set. Other extras include Fun on the Set: Bloopers, Babies, Ballroom, and Brian McNamara, which is basically a bunch of outtakes. Although they are fun to watch. The best extra on the set is a featurette called Hangin' At the Hump with the Cast of Army Wives. In this extra the cast talk about the past five years as friends over dinner. It is fun to see the great chemistry that everyone has together. There are moments in this segment that are entertaining and it is probably the best thing about this set. The only downside is that there are no episode commentaries in this set.

Final Words:

The fifth season Army Wives is another solid season and it is easy to see why it is one of Lifetime's biggest hits. It is a shame that this season is shorter than the previous seasons. Plus the extras are kind of weak with the exception of Hangin' At the Hump. However, these are not big complaints. If you are a fan of the series, then the DVD is worth purchasing. If you are just getting into the series, then start from season one.
