I have read on several Web sites that the ratings for this show are only so-so. It's a shame more people aren't watching it. This show has attracted the best character actors in Hollywood. And what a dream it must be to play characters that are so complex and multi-layered.

I will admit, the storylines are all very similar. They all revolve around either Bill having some issue with his wives or Bill struggling against people who are trying to keep him from the business deals he wants to make happen. (This season is focused on making Weber Gaming a success and all the trouble the getting into gambling is causing him and his family). The thing is, even though there is a predictable pattern of going back and forth between family drama and work drama, all the people in Bill's life continue to evolve and we continue to see them grow and struggle.

I truly hope this show is renewed for a few more seasons. I am still very invested in these characters and want to know what happens to them.

As some of the other reviewers mentioned, it was a long time coming for Season 3 to come out, but definitely worth the wait. I've been a loyal viewer of Big Love (it's one of my favorite HBO shows) since the beginning. The first one or two episodes of Season 3 may seem a bit trite (and boring) but that's because the writers are building up the story line. Hold on to your seats because after the first couple of episodes, you're going for a thrilling ride. As always, character development is superb as is the drama between the characters (inside and outside of the Hendrickson family). I won't go into the storyline, as I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but this is a definite must see.

I've been a long-time fan of Big Love, and can't help but be addicted to this story about a polygamist, successful Mormon businessman Bill Henrickson (played credibly by Bill Paxton), and his three wives - Barb (Jeanne Triplehorn) the first wife who was initially (during her battle with cancer)persuaded by husband Bill to embrace "The Principle" which basically embraces the concept of polygamy. Through Seasons 1-2, we see Barb struggle with the consequences of living The Principle as reflected in the conflicts between her and her two other sister wives (as the co-wives are called) and also the impact it has on her own relationship not just with Bill and their children, but also Barb's family. Then there's second wife Nicolette (Chloe Sevigny) who is the daughter of Roman Grant, the patriarch and Prophet of Juniper Creek, a Mormon settlement and whose followers all embrace The Principle. Nicki's character is often portrayed as ultra religious and rather extreme in her views, though she is not without flaws - for one, she is a spendthrift and her battles with shopping addiction was well-chronicled in the earlier seasons. The main reason for Nicki's joining Bill's family was initially to provide a mother figure for Bill and Barb's children in case Barb should die. Finally, the third wife is Margene, the new convert to The Principle, and also the youngest amongst the wives. Over the seasons, we see Margene maturing into her role as the third sister wife and no longer as naive as she was in the first season.

As Season Three begins, there is plenty of drama to keep long-time fans entertained and to intrigue new fans (though this series does need to be watched from the First Season in order to truly understand all the dynamics of the relationships and the convoluted story arcs).

Binge watching may be inadvisable. I found myself wanting the Greene's to choke egomaniac, sex fiend, greedy, manipulative, not nearly as good looking as I thought he was in season 1, sanctimonious without accompanying religiosity Bill for at least another full minute, for Barb to wake up out of whatever fogs she's been in and finally inform her husband that she'll no longer tolerate his philandering ... regardless of his supposed testimony to go back to his fundamentalist roots, for Nicki to "shut the H up" with her whining, smirking, manipulative, destructive, falsely pious blather (actually, now that I think about it, she's Bill's female reflection) ... and for Margene to admit that she's bisexual, sexually attracted to Ben, and too naive to actually survive without at least three other people to care for her. I was very glad that Ana ran off.
On the other hand, I've obviously become so invested in the show that I'm writing a full length review.
Harry Dean Stanton is absolutely superb in his role as The Prophet; not only does he absolutely have that raw-boned appearance ... defines the concept, actually ... but voice inflection, facial expression, and entirety of presentation is award worthy (Hello, again, Kiser Pease. You ain't changed not one little bit in 40 long years. Where the Lilies Bloom made an indelible impression on me; this actor was a large part of that).
I'll be watching for other movies/shows that feature Matt Ross, who portrays Alby Grant; he has that charisma that makes him very interesting to watch
The other actors in Big Love play their roles to the hilt as well, as has been discussed by many other viewers.
