Big Love Recap

Big_love_ep3201This week on Big Love, the "previously on" replays Kathy's death scene, which makes me gag because I really could have done without hearing that neck-cracking sound ever again. Thanks, HBO.

Big Love Recap

Big_love_ep3105Apologies in advance for this less-detailed-than-usual recap, but I think you'll agree with me that nearly all of the events in this episode can fall under one of two categories: OMG or WTF.

Big Love Recap

Slideshow_ep3003

You know what I just can't figure out about the Henricksons? Whenever life gets way too insane, instead of slowing down and taking it easy and attempting to simplify life, they add more stressful things into the mix. And not small things like, "Oh, my brother's wife is poisoning people. I think I'll reorganize the silverware to take my mind off of it." Big things...like a fourth wife, another baby or two, a second store, a new gambling business. Or, like this week, a 3,000 mile road trip with the whole fam damily.

Big Love Recap

I love watching those ridiculous old airline commercials. You know, the ones that spend their whole 30 seconds pointing out that their stewardesses wear short skirts and are held to strict and misogynistic aesthetic standards and, oh, who cares about flight safety, anyway? Boobies! They're fun to watch because they're ridiculous in our context. But Margene apparently watched them as a how-to video.

Big Love Recap

Yes, yes, late again, I know. But I have another really good excuse! I was in Vegas with my...uh...colleagues! It was a business trip, because I'm a businesswoman and I eat lunch specials for businesswomen. It was a business thing. You know...*rolls eyes*

Big Love Recap (A Million Years Late)

Big_love_ep2705

What's up, party people? I'm sorry that this recap comes to you so late in the week. As I mentioned on Monday, I was preoccupied on Sunday with having multiple coronaries while watching the Super Bowl and then celebrating in the streets of Pittsburgh. I actually didn't get a chance to watch Big Love until last night. So let's get to it, shall we?

Big Love Recap

Slideshow_ep2605

I was trying to think about the worst date I ever had to try to segue into this recap, but I'm coming up blank because I never dated that much...I just sort of hung out with dudes until we moved in together. So I'm having a hard time relating to Ana in this episode, but I certainly feel for her.

Big Love Recap!

Big_love_ep2505

Oh, man. I am having such a hard time keeping my eyes open this morning, mostly due to the sheer excitement of last night. My dear Steelers are going to the Super Bowl. Plus, the third season of Big Love premiered, plus The United States of Tara premiered, plus the second season of The Secret Diary of a Call Girl premiered. However, due to the aforementioned Steeler game, I only got to see Big Love.

Anyway, let's get recapping, shall we? I've missed this show so much!

Big Love Recap

Ep_23_03_2

As the second season of Big Love starts to wind down, things are getting predictably wild. Barb is having a tough time dealing with the decisions that she's made in life, Alby is driving Nicki crazy, Sarah is getting ready to do the dirty-dirty with Scott even though she doesn't totally want to, Ben is dating monotonous compound twins, Bill's business affairs are just totally out of control, and Wanda is just...bizarre at this point. Also: THERE ARE SNAKES IN THIS MUTHAEFFIN' SUBURB.

Ep_22_01

For the record, I still really hate Rhonda, but I will admit that I wouldn't mind hearing her sing rather often. And I now think that she should marry Alby because they're both evil and manipulative.

Big Love Recap

Ep_21_04

Now that he's about to close on the Weber Gaming deal, Bill decides it's finally time to let his wives in on his dealings. Unfortunately, his wives have minds of their own (well, Nicki and Barb do, the jury's still out on Margene) and therefore conflicting opinions on the matter. Also, Roman is not dead but unfortunately neither is Alby, which leads me to believe that there is not a single competent wacked-out polygamist Mormon sister wife assassin in the whole state of Utah. Sad.

Big Love Recap

Ep_20_01_3I was a little irritated that HBO kept hyping this episode as "THE MOST DRAMATIC EPISODE EVER EVER EVER" and then it wasn't that dramatic for the first 40 minutes or so. And then...holy crap.

Big Love Recap

Ep_19_02Hi! So, I'm at Conneaut Lake in upstate Pennsylvania for a week with my family and have run into two serious problems: few people here have HBO and even fewer people have internet access. I've been roughing it here. But my dedication to HBO recaps is such that I Macguyver-ed together some VHS tapes and an internet connection in Meadville, PA.

Anyway, Margene's mom is in town and is on a mission to make everyone miserable through the cunning use of blinking light shirts and Stoli. Not surprisingly, Nicki LOVES her.

Big Love Recap

Ep_18_08You know, last week, when I predicted that PFWA would be sabotaged, I didn't think I needed to mention Margene in my "on notice" list. But, amazingly, her over-enthusiasm and Bill's fuzzy connection to the Holy Spirit seems to have
ended things...at least for now.

Also, I hate Rhonda. So much.
