Big Love Recap: End of Days

Big_love_margene_nicki Honestly? This season finale was kind of tamer than I had anticipated. I think Lois chopping off Very Truly Yours Hollis Green's arm kind of spoiled me. Henceforth, any Big Love episode that doesn't end in some samurai action is kind of dull.

Big Love Recap: Next Ticket Out

Big_love_henricksons I'm concerned. There's only one episode of Big Love left and someone has already lost their arm to a machete. What can we expect for the season finale? Tarring and feathering? Disembowelment? A musical number? The horrific possibilities are endless.

Big Love Recap: Blood Atonement

Big_love_margene_barb_ring Late last night, after taking in the latest Big Love episode, I thought back to my more innocent days. Namely, my more innocent days of last week, when I naively thought that seeing Nicki pull up to a seedy motel/creepy marriage factory in a mini skirt and side ponytail and then seeing her proceed to kick ass and take names was one of the craziest things that I had seen happen on this show. Oh, what a fool I was.

Big Love Recap: Under One Roof

Big_love_bill I'll be honest. I had a really hard time tearing myself away from coverage of the Olympics to watch Big Love. I mean, how could the shenanigans of the Henricksons compare to the drama of mens' moguls or womens' speedskating? Well, after last night's episode, I'll never doubt Bill and Co. again.

Big Love Recap: Sins of the Father

Big_love_barb_bill I was watching Big Love last night while waiting to hear whether or not my snow-buried city would be functional today (it wasn't) and wondered if seasons of Big Love always take place during the summer. That seems to be the case, doesn't it?

Big Love Recap: The Mighty and the Strong

Big_love_2 Bill has thrown himself into this whole politicking thing. He's doing radio shows, elaborate public events, hiding his family scandals, and throwing his lifelong friends under the bus. He's a born poltician!

Big Love Recap: Strange Bedfellows

MargeneThe reason why I know Bill and Nicki are perfect for each other is that for every bad idea that Bill has, Nicki has five. Like, toting a concealed handgun around DC, where people are totally cool with that because there aren't, like, assassination attempts or anything. Yep, those two kids are going to be together forever...unless they accidentally kill each other first.

Big Love Recap: The Greater Good AND Giveaway Winners!

Big_love_season4_episode2_nicki_bill_1 Well, it's a day that ends in "y," which means Bill Henrickson must have a New! Awesome! Fantastic! Idea that Totally Won't Take His Family to the Brink of Ruin! I swear, if I was married to him, I would have brain damage a long time ago due to repeatedly smacking myself in the head.

Big Love Recap: Free At Last

Big_love_season4_episode1_bill_roman_1Confession: we still have our Christmas tree up. We're taking it down tonight, but I've been really bummed the last few days thinking about how it won't be around anymore. Last night, I was all sad-pants...but then I remembered that Big Love was starting again!

10 Reasons Polygamy Is The Way, As Informed By My Engaged Viewing Of Big Love

Big_love Me and my wife don't smoke crack so we watch TV on DVD, compulsively. Like, just one more before bed. Please baby. One more episode. That kind of thing. So anyway, we recently started watching Big Love and I can't stop thinking about having sex with a bunch of women and having it sanctioned by my religion. Because, obviously, that would rock the house.

Seasonal Affective Disorder Got You Down Already? Big Love Will Be Here Soon

Big_love_season_4 Angela Chase once mused that there was something about Sunday evenings that made you want to kill yourself. It used to be the shadow of school looming over my head. Now it's the promise of a Monday at work, literally dragging my kid out of bed and to the school bus stop, and the lack of shows to recap.

Big Love Recap

Big_love_episode_33Ohhhh, kids. We're nearing the end of this season. On the one hand, I'm very bummed because Big Love is the one bright spot of Sunday nights. Like the patron saint of angsty girls, Angela Chase, once said, "There's something about Sunday night that makes you want to kill yourself." But on the other hand, plotlines are rushing at a breakneck speed and this show is just ridiculously exciting.
