This show is so underrated, sadly. I mean the show is in top 3 of HBO's dramas. Seasons 1 & 2 are kinda bad but after that 'Big Love' becomes a perfection. I'm on season 5 now and it's SO hard to watch. So much happens with all these characters, damn


I don't know why exactly but every time I've seen Big Love mentioned I just glossed over it for some reason, I finally gave it a hard look this summer and just finished the series last night. Pros: - Strong performances by the lead antagonists, Harry Dean Stanton (Roman Grant) and Matt Ross (Alby Grant) were a cut above the rest here. - It was fun to see familiar faces like Aaron Paul, Amanda Seyfried, Bruce Derns, and Mireille Enos (The Killing) just to name a few. - Chloë Sevigny (Nicolette Grant): You can take the girl out of the compound but you can't take the compound out of the girl. The most interesting of the 3 wives for me early on. - Bill Paxton is Bill Henrickson without a doubt, I never cared for him in other roles but he is a perfect fit here. Cons: - Cheesy at times. - Overall Big Love was one of the weaker HBO shows I've seen when compared with what they had out at the time, it's surprising to me that Rome, Deadwood, and Carnivàle were cancelled yet Big Love was allowed 5 seasons. Side note: Not a con just an oddity, over the entire series it was very hard to relate or sympathize with any of the characters really, from normal daily activities to their whole way of thinking. Everything was just a bit off like an alternate universe type of feeling. When an argument would happen sides would form and I would find my self not caring and take neither side. I'm sure a Mormon or even a religious person would have a better chance at relating but I still expected I would be able to do so in some way at least.


I finished this series last night. I honestly do not know what to feel or how to rate this so I am not going to do that. Acting was really good. I didn't like the main characters very much nor could relate to them. I was puzzled about how the show presented religions and churches like mormons and polygamist mormons and christians. I kind of liked it because I don't think that they sugar coated a thing. The whole last season was giving very strong messages that there is a big chance that everything is not going to be okay. I feel a bit puzzled because of the ending. I hate and love it same time.
