What do you mean you've got 1,438 channels and there's nothing on?! Chances are someone here has some show they want to tell you all the spoilers for. Maybe the entire show has just been the main character's dream...

"Big Love" on HBO

  • Does anyone around here watch this show?  I think it's an amazing, well-acted drama with a great ensemble cast, though it does sometimes become over-ambitious in it's multitude of plot lines (though not to the extent of "Heroes"). 

    It's about a polygamist Mormon family that's trying to become "mainstream," but are still struggling with their roots in the compound, Juniper Creek.  It has many parallels with the stories that were in the news a few years back about Warren Jeffs, and for a great primer on the whole history of Mormonism, I highly recommend Under the Banner of Heaven, by Jon Krakauer (who also wrote Into the Wild). 

    Anyway, if you're a fan of good drama, and are fiending for another one with "Mad Men" and "Dexter" off the air, I highly suggest this show.


  • I tried watching it during the first season and it didn't take.
