Just in case you were afraid that the writers might run out of plot lines and character developments, season two comes along with heart-stopping excitement! I can't stop watching Big Love, and I hope that it keeps going for many, many seasons to come.

If you're already a fan, you understand my excitement. If you've never seen the show, I almost envy you for the opportunity to sit down and see it all for the first time without having to wait from week to week for new developments.

Without any doubt, purchasing Big Love on DVD is a great investment, because it will provide you with hours of entertainment that you will watch multiple times. It's that good!!

This show follows the life of a polygamous family most with fractured ties to a compound and their prophet. The family is trying to live "The Principle" though white lies, deceit, and deception are common occurrences. Some of the kids embrace their life while others are looking to break from it. The Book of Mormon is mentioned but this family is a break away from the LDS. The LDS families in the show are depicted as intolerant of plural marriage and slightly nutty. Having known a LDS High Priest I'd say the series is a blast but is far from an honest portrayal of LDS members who are imperfect in various ways like everyone else.

Great intrigue as Bill's perfect world starts to fray at the edges. Nicky, surely the least likeable wife, wrangles with her money demons. Barb renews her attempts to placate and mediate impossible situations for love of Bill and Margene makes efforts go her own way.

The threats hinted at in series one emerge powerfully in this series because it was too good to be true. Veterans of series 1 knew that and the narratives which drive series 2 will please them. Bill's oldest children have to find ways to deal with their weird family which adds an extra level of intelligence to the script.

I am a big love addict, but I can't justify paying for HBO every month just to watch it. So instead I wait and wait for it to come out on DVD. As soon as I get it I watch multiple episodes in a row, what can I say I already told you I was addicted. This is such a well made show, the characters are so real and the storylines are amazing. I cannot recommended this show enough, I tell everyone about it and have even let them borrow my seasons. I say borrow because I have to get them back. This isn't a show I watch once and am done with, this will be a classic.

Very great acting, all three women give a realistic idea from a non-believer on what it would feel like to convert into a situation like this with Ana being the most ideal one. The ending was great, with a good conclusion about family no matter what religion if any one practices and fits the title. As a woman that prefers solely a monogamous marriage, call me greedy, Bill was my least favorite but it didn't stop me from watching episodes back to back!

I'd recommend that the viewer watch at least three before dismissing the show all together.

I didn't expect to much from this series just based on a couple of episodes. I left it came back and this series has everything, love, hate, guilt, conniving, sex, murder, jealousy, I mean it has it all and more. If it isn't one thing it's another and it keeps coming. I was involved in every series because of the religious belief and it proved to me that this is not what God intended for his children, children of God because some of us are not a child of God.

If you watched season one, you already know what this series is. If you liked season one, you will like season two and three. I am waiting for season 4, so I'm hooked. It's good fun that I never find boring.
I have been fascinated with the polygamy thing for a long time. I live in the West about `50 miles from one of the most well known polygamist towns.
This series brings out the Mormon experience and their ambiguous feelings about their history.

I was introduced to the show by a friend and became hooked. Good cast, good storylines. Bill is a guy you think you'll wanna like, but he tries real hard to make you hate him. Some of the plotlines turn corners a bit too quick and don't get explained well - especially those involving his middle wife, Nikki and her relationship with the folks of the compound. But all in all, a very satisfying hour a week - while we wait for Dexter and Weeds to return!

I'm halfway through Season 4, and I think Seasons 1 & 2 are my favorite. Season 3 gets a little, "Wait. What, now?" and Season 4 is pretty off the rails. I rather hope Season 5 is better, but unfortunately I've read some spoiler (looked at IMDb when I shouldn't have) and I'm afraid I'm going to be disappointed in how it wraps up.

But 1 & 2 are very interesting, witnessing the day to day workings of such an unconventional family.
