Big Love, the series on HBO could be the best show on TV. It may be the only show I watch, now that NFL football has ended, but that’s because it is compelling, interesting, funny, dramatic – and entertaining.
Big Love is about a fundamentalist, Latter Day Saints (FLDS) family and their struggles and triumphs as they attempt to balance their faith and ostracism from society and the Mormon faithful – the true Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is unique and certainly not another crime scene, reality, or other knockoff show.
Last night I turned to my wife and said the current episode may have been the best TV show I have ever seen. I could have watched it for hours.
Since it is a continuing story, you will get more out of an episode if you are already familiar with the story line and characters. I suggest buying or renting the series on DVD to catch-up. Prepare to be hooked.
