Are we that hard to please? Reactions to "Coming Home"

From ACU's, Stiletto Shoes, and Pretty Pink Tutus by Mrs. G.I. Joe -
So, many of you might have watched last night's premier of Coming Home on Lifetime after Army Wives. If you haven't heard its a really sweet show that documents service members surprising their loved ones. I'm guessing it was inspired by all the videos going around the web of the same nature. I always love seeing military families react to the new ways that our lifestyle makes its way into pop culture and the media.

But I'm kind of disappointed in reactions that I've seen to this. All I've seen for the most part is people complaining about Coming Home. For the life of me I can't figure out why. This post is NOT in any way directed at anyone specific but here are a few basic summaries of some reactions:

(That one I've seen even about stupid contests for the "best" homecoming picture)
