In a very a parallel way, Sister Wives, a current reality show about a polygamous family presents us with a family who choose to live their lives in the open. Unlike the Hendrickson's however, the patriarch of the family did not run for public office nor have a business that depends on public support.

This final season of Big Love was much better than the cartoonish and improbable episodes from Season 4. It takes a very dramatic turn towards the reality of their lives and there is no longer anything remotely humorous except dead on issues that can no longer be run away from. It's mostly about Senator Bill Hendrickson's refusal to put his religion in the closet. While he has noble intentions, the political, financial and emotional toll it takes on his family is overwhelming. This is also the season of self realization for all three wives, no longer able to do just what's best for their family but to meet their own individual spiritual, emotional and intellectual growth that can no longer be suppressed.

Like many, I sure am sorry this wonderful series has concluded. I can only hope and pray that one day, maybe we'll see Big Love, the Movie (which I'd much rather see than another Sex in the City installment). Big Love you will truly be missed!

As an atheist I have been thoroughly captivated by this show because of its authentic struggle with fundamentalism and faith. While my own faith is firmly planted in the here and now and has evolved from a Catholic upbringing into one that sees most organized religions as manipulative, superstitious, patriarchal, and hypocritical, "Big Love" struggles with all of these considerations, but digs more deeply into the nature of faith beyond the here and now and surprisingly finds the true relevance of faith in the here and now. (Spoiler) When Paxon's character, Bill Henrickson, finds his own church built upon the principles of pluralistic marriage apart from the cult pedophilia that had characterized the elders set adrift in the Juniper Creek Compound, his gathering sermon recognizes that faith does not rain from above but emerges from our connections with family and friends. This is such a tremendous revelation for him. In this final scene, souls are repaired, covenants are remembered, and a vision of a once forward-looking church reveals itself. While I abhor the idea of polygamy, taking a wider view of history and a view of woman as healers (which is not impossible for an atheist), maybe it takes many wives to tame the irrational, aggressive beasts that are most men. This may be too generous and too slight, such is the dichotomy of the genders blessed and cursed by compassion and cruelty. When Barbara, Bill's wife, assumes the Priesthood and gives Bill his final blessing, his new understanding of faith is sanctified by virtue of the connection he makes with his equal.Read more ›

Polygamy works for our lead character Bill. It also works for his three wives and his children. They consider themselves law abiding, family oriented, god centered people. Thus, Bill wants to come out of the shadows and be accepted for what he is, a polygamist. Thus, this final season is primarily a tragedy on Shakespearean levels because he and his family can never be accepted in this country for what they are. This is because even though they live in the most religiously tolerant nation in the world, which also confers the greatest personal freedoms upon its citizens, that county can never allow polygamy to come out of the shadows because it is against our law.

Utah was permitted to enter the union only if it ended the practice. And it is clear why the country insisted on this: it is a nation of laws and too many legal problems are potentially created by polygamy, especially for a modern society which confers equal rights and responsibilities upon its citizens. This practice worked somewhat in an agricultural society centuries ago. It is too much of an anachronism for a post industrial revolution society which has marched off into the digital revolution. Just look at how little educated his entire family is. How are they going to fit into this modern world? He is very rich through most of the show and it is pretty clear all of these children will NOT be going on to college. I can't recall any of these children ever using a computer of any sort. Are they all going to sell washing machines at the family store?

It never occurs to Bill to ask himself how he can expect his store patrons, his senate colleagues, his neighbors and other acquaintances to feel when they see him and his family prospering although they are flagrantly breaking the law.

We have watched this series via Amazon instant video all the way from Season 1 through the season 5 season. We're certainly enjoyed the series....but this final year (season 5) was somewhat of a disappointment. It was very "dark" and while I'm glad we watched it to see how things end....it's not a very satisfying ending season. It's not that I think every TV show needs a happy ending...but there are so many ways the writers could have gone which in my opinion would have been more satisfying and less "dark". While watching season 5 it was like you were forced to carry around a 50 pound cement block while watching....it was heavy, dark and ended up with far to many loose ends for our tastes.
