I DVR’d the season premiere last night and watched it this morning. I will admit that I was less than impressed with last season and only watched the first episode and last few episodes of the season. But as always, it ended with a bang (literally) so I had to tune in at least to see what happened.
It seems as if this season has some potential. All of the characters are involved in something instead of just a few. And as much as I hate Lenore, I think it will be interesting for her to be back in the mix again.
One thing I have never understood (and feel free to enlighten me) is why some refuse to watch it because it is not realistic. I get that it is not. In fact, there’s very little on the show that mirrors real Army life other than maybe some of the personalities that are portrayed. But why does that matter? Very little else on television is real either. It is all just entertainment pure and simple.
I’m sure crime scene investigators feel the same about CSI and doctors feel the same about ER and House. I guess I just don’t understand why some can’t just view it as entertainment and state they won’t watch it because it isn’t real. It was never meant to be a documentary. The Army post doesn’t even exist.
I’ve heard some say that it portrays Army wives in a bad light. I can see their argument to a certain extent but I don’t watch other shows based on different professions and lifestyles and use it to base my opinions on the real people living that life.
Feel free to enlighten me. I’m just hoping for a more entertaining season than last.
