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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
