t first glance, the Browns are a typical big American family, but as Kody, father and husband explains; I fell in love, fell in love again, and fell in love again. Kody Brown, is a polygamist with three wives (Wife #1, Meri; Wife #2 Janelle; Wife #3 Christine) and 13 rambunctious kids. This series presents a fresh look at a lifestyle that has been mired in secrecy and misunderstanding. Shattering stereotypes, the Browns show viewers a type of polygamy that has never been seen before - a lifestyle so close to mainstream America, yet so seemingly well adjusted.


1 Meet Kody & the Wives
Long: Meet the Browns, a seemingly regular family on the outside, but with a twist once you step inside their home. Things get even more
extraordinary when we learn that they are on the verge of another huge change that could transform the family s dynamic forever.

2 Courting a Fourth Wife
Long: Kody heads south to court his potential fourth wife, Robyn. Meanwhile back home, the wives express their true feelings about their new possible
sister wife as they make preparations for Christine s new baby.

3 Wives on the Move
Long: Kody and his teenage daughters throw a birthday party for his new fiancée, Robyn. Meanwhile, 1st wife Meri struggles with feelings of jealousy
as the whole Brown clan moves Robyn and her anxious kids closer to the family home.

4 Third Wife in Labor
Long: Kody's fiancée Robyn helps out with the kids while Kody and his pregnant third wife Christine go to the hospital. A week overdue, they must make
an important decision on whether or not to induce labor.

5 1st Wife's 20th Anniversary
Long: While the three wives buy a friendship ring for Kody's fiancée Robyn, Kody prepares to celebrate his 20th Anniversary with his first wife, Meri.
But when nothing goes as planned, will Kody end up in the dog house?

6 A Fourth Wife to Be
Long: As the wedding day nears, the three wives help fiancée Robyn pick a wedding dress, a cake, and a venue for their unique polygamist wedding
reception. Meanwhile, it s Janelle s birthday and Kody has a special trip planned just for the two of them.

7 Four Wives and Counting...
Long: The big day is finally here! Follow Kody and his wives as they make Robyn officially wife number four. See this extraordinary family as they

I had recorded a marathon of season 2, and the beginning of season 3 of this show, but wanted to see the beginning before I turned to my DVR. This DVD of season 1 was pretty short and didn't include the 2 "specials" that another version includes; but then, it was pretty cheap, too. I enjoyed watching these 7 episodes and think the program is very well produced. My only comment about the content of the first season is that there was a lot of crying. I look forward to continuing this series with my DVR recordings until I catch up to real time.

In a bold programming stroke, TLC flouted convention and dropped "Sister Wives" onto its 2010 TV schedule. A reality TV show in which the subject matter is considered both taboo and illegal is a daring bit of maneuvering that might have garnered TLC more press than actual viewers though. In truth, I don't watch many of these types of reality show--but I suspect people tune in because they identify with the participants or because the antics are so outrageous, they can't wait to see what happens next. As an avid fan of "Big Love" (who despite a rocky last season is TV's most consistently underrated drama) and Brady Udall's "The Lonely Polygamist" (one of my top five books of 2010), I threw caution to the wind with "Sister Wives." It might be interesting to note, at this juncture, that this TV show did open up a Utah legal investigation into the Kody Brown clan and they have subsequently relocated to an unspecified domicile in Nevada. Such is the price of fame!

I suppose the primary goal of "Sister Wives" is to show that polygamists lead lives much like you or I. The show is structured around Kody Brown and his three families that live under one roof. However, much of the season's dramatic arc comes from Kody courting and marrying a fourth wife. While I found the whole situation slightly distasteful and I didn't particularly like Kody, I'm going to be very politically correct and try to evaluate the merits of the show on their own rights. However, if you don't care for Kody or his wives, let's just say that there are really no more merits. What is lacking from "Sister Wives" is any sort of narrative drive--nothing ever really happens. Heck, if the wedding wasn't part of the deal, I fear we would have been hopelessly stranded in inertia.

There are reality shows for minor celebrities, musicians, tattoo artists, rich brats, people with huge families, lesbians, superheroes, and presidential wannabes.

And with "Sister Wives Season 1," you can add polygamists (or rather, polygynists) to the long list of slightly-off-the-norm people who have put themselves on reality TV. And while this show initially seems like an interesting glimpse into a family with, um, unconventional marriage habits, it starts getting disturbing and creepy as we see more of the family patriarch.

That would be Kody Brown, who belongs to a sect that splintered off the Mormon Church about a century ago (they share many of the tenets, but still practice polgamy). He lives in an enormous house with his three wives -- bubbly Christine, down-to-earth Meri, and earth-mama Janelle -- and their vast brood of children.

Over the course of the show, a few subplots crop up. Kody courts and becomes engaged to the weepy Robyn. Christine gives birth to her sixth baby, Truely. And as the family prepares for a new wedding, Kody's obvious favoritism makes some waves among his other wives -- especially when he takes Robyn on an 11-day California honeymoon.

I don't support polygamy, but I made my best effort to go into "Sister Wives" with an open mind, since I know that some people can make unconventional lifestyles work for them. And "Sister Wives" does live up to its name, since Janelle, Meri and Christine are all likable women who have a strong bond of trust, love and honesty with one another. It's also fascinating to see how the children in such a lifestyle turn out, and the attitudes they have.

But after a few episodes, the cracks in the "plig" lifestyle start to show. The biggest problem is Kody. This guy is CREEPY.

I must admit, I watched this DVD all in one night. There's something about the life style that's intriguing and hard to stop watching. It leaves many questions though, which was the reason for the three stars. The big one being, WHY? It's never explained, partially or in full, why he has so many wives. I would love to have been filled in on what particular beliefs they have (in their mormon faith) and what so many marriages are supposed to achieve. I also thought it was a bit humorous when the first wife askes her husband to imagine her flirting or being with another man, how does it make him feel? He is so indignant and disgusted to even have to think about such a thing, but yet he's in the middle of his fourth courtship! That's where I would have appreciated an explanation. What is it that makes a woman stay in a marriage where she shares her husband? I understand the whole having other women around to help with the kids, but why share a husband? I also don't get what Cody means when he's quoted at the beginning of every show saying, "Love should be multiplied, not divided." Isn't he dividing his love up between four different women? So yes, while this makes entertaining television, some explanations would be nice. (and if they explained and I missed it, leave me a comment cause I'd love to know.)
