    Big Love - The Season 4 Thread

    There are other HBO series that get more notoriety and popularity, but this show is one of the reasons I send an additional amount of money every month to DirecTV. This, and some of the movies and their sports documentaries mainly.

    Anyway, Big Love's fourth season premieres this Sunday, and I can't wait.

    We've even had "Juniper Creek Christmas card" video advertising, here on various MiceChat pages.

    Here's HBO's trailer:

    And from the LA Times today:
    The weather reports might have shown that it was a sunny mid-November afternoon in Southern California, but inside a Santa Clarita-based "Big Love" soundstage, a storm is brewing. Tucked within a nondescript building sit the three Henrickson houses, and head wife Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn) is quietly working at the island in her kitchen. That is, until sister-wife Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin) slips in through the back door and nonchalantly drops that she had gone out and done something . . . huge. Only, because this is filming seven episodes into the fourth season, we can't say what that is.

    Suffice it to say that the news does not sit well with the first wife. If that wasn't bad enough, wife No. 2, Nicki (ChloŽ Sevigny), stops by, and Barb quickly discovers she's been the odd woman out all along. "Nicki, you knew?" she accuses. The jaw-dropping news and the betrayal are too much for even the temperate head wife to handle: Barb bursts into an all-out rage -- "My cope container is full, do you hear me? It is full!" -- and storms out, leaving the other spouses to uneasily absorb her wake.

    Welcome to the ever-volatile, ever-revolving swirl of secrets and wives. Over its three seasons, HBO's drama about a man and his three wives has evolved from a curious polygamy premise into a nuanced family drama. The dense interlacing of tense marital strife, social commentary and even a fair share of laughs proved a potent mix its third season out, and the series picked up its first-ever best drama Emmy nomination. More recently, it was named one of AFI's top television programs of 2009 and earned Golden Globe nods for Bill Paxton (who plays Henrickson patriarch Bill) and Sevigny as well as for best drama.

    But on the eve of its fourth-season premiere Sunday (9 p.m.), the series is not content to rest on its laurels. There's more "Love" now than ever.

    "It's much bigger in scope," announces Will Scheffer, who co-created and executive produces the show along with partner Mark V. Olsen.

    "It's a roller coaster ride," affirms Mary Kay Place, who plays Roman Grant's head wife, Adaleen.

    Should be another fun nine weeks for one of the more underrated shows on TV. I just wish HBO's seasons were longer!
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Re: Big Love - The Season 4 Thread

    It certainly should be interesting, with Bill apparently ready to run for public office, and the exposure to the family that will bring.

    I've never been quite sure why he felt the need to get into the casino business. That's been a part of the story line I haven't quite understood.

    As I understand it, the existence of "the letter" (about whether or not the Mormon Church distanced itself from polygamy in the 19th Century) is a matter of debate among scholars of such things.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
