Love this show! Have from the first season and am so sad to hear this will be the last season!

A smart and thought provoking drama about a man trying to balance his business and personal life. The thing is he has three wives that he attempts to keep secret from outsiders. You will see him make tough choices in an attempt to do what is best for his family. Watch all 5 seasons and see what happens, you'll love it. Be mindful it is an HBO series so an account with them and the show does have occasional nudity.

My guilty pleasure! Loved this show!

Definately sad they are canceling this show!

Absolutely love this show but definitely don't love the live style. Seriously I get jealous if my husband looks at another woman let alone sleep with one. I cant believe that they are canceling it :-(

Big Love Big Love is an American television drama on HBO about a fictional fundamentalist Mormon family in Utah that practices polygamy. The series revolves around Bill Henrickson, his three wives (Barb, first/legal wife; Nicki, second wife; and Margene, third wife) and their (combined) eight children. Henrickson lives with his family in three neighboring houses in Sandy, Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City. Big Love stars Bill Paxton, Chlo├?┬?├?┬ź Sevigny, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Ginnifer Goodwin, Harry Dean Stanton, Amanda Seyfried, Douglas Smith, Grace Zabriskie, and Matt Ross. With Tom Hanks acting as Producer. The series premiered in the United States on March 12, 2006. The second season aired in 2007 and the third season began airing January 18, 2009 in the U.S. and Canada. The fourth season began filming in August 2009 and will premiere on January 10, 2010 Though it's a bit staggering to the imagination that people still live like this- the show is fast paced and drama filled. But what would you expect in show where a man is trying to juggle three wives while looking for wife #4 and more children than you can shake a stick at.

Big Love is very entertaining. Like any show it does have the blah episodes. I love the different family dynamic it brings to the screen (true to life or not). It must definitely give the writers something to work with having 3 wives working/living together, sharing a husband, raising each other's children and having to entertain the idea of their husband dating! The characters are dynamic and poignant. I love love love this show - if for nothing else than to see what the writers come up with next. The only thing I don't like about Big Love is the opening credits. It is though they are reaching for symbolism. Just irks me is all. :)

Very entertaining!!!! I have watched since the Hit HBO Serious "Big Love" began! My DVR is set to record the 4th and final season. I watched the 1st episode of the fourth season this past Sunday evening and was amused. Two thumbs up for entertainment purposes! **SIDE NOTE - Regarding Polygomy** I actually read the book "Escape" by Carolyn Jessop & Laura Palmer. An actual TRUE STORY of a woman and her children whom escaped polygomy. Highly recommended! Good read, if you are interested in how REAL, UGLY & disturbing polygomy truly is. "Big Love" while entertaining, it glamourizes polygomy more than it shows the dark reality of what goes on in REAL Polyigomy families in UTAH. However, "BIG LOVE" does touch on the scary & evil side of polygomy; I feel to get a true & real reality based perception on this way of life, you should definitely read "Escape" or watch the True life Documentaries of Polygomy to see the evil in it, the lost boys, and abuse a lot of these women and children are brainwashed and subjected to. In my opinion it is awful and these men (so called prophets, etc.) take advantage of the religion and by using it as power to abuse. Young girls are put in a book to be chosen as brides at the age as early as 12 to 15. That is WRONG and the reality of TRUE polygomy.


I have On Demand and I thought " What the Heck" so I started watching. I watched every episode of every season they had listed! This show draws you in because it is so different. It is like Dallas mixed with some Polygamy..but it works!!!

guilty pleasure!

Great series!

This has been my favorite show since the first season. I look forward to watching it every Sunday. I love all the characters.

I like this show too!! Can't wait for the next season!

This show is wonderful! HBO knows what they are doing (True Blood, Hung, Entourage, etc.). Big Love is full of drama and excitement. The writing and actors are awesome. Eagerly anticipating what the new season has in store!
