Lifetime's reality show "Coming Home", about soldiers coming home from overseas/surprising their families, premiered last night. There were some really touching scenes; impromptu surprises as well as some really elaborately staged ones.

Did anyone watch; if so, what did you think of the show? Just wondering, if you were in this same situation, how would you feel about having your reunion filmed?

If you didn't get a chance to watch, it is available for viewing online here:

I saw this and I like the stories but I also wondered about how much of it is scripted? It seems like it is such a private moment, but I think each family has to decide what works for them. I know my kids would be really upset if I played a trick on them like that, regardless of whether they were ultimately relieved/happy.
