I've been a big fan for many years and there are certain shows that I'll always remember. I'm not sure if it's just because the show has gone on for many seasons or because the story line's are controversial.
I have to start off by saying that I love Bill Paxton. When I was getting divorced in 1994, I saw the movie Indian Summer and I fell in love. As soon as it came out on video, I watched it a million times and once the internet was invented....I searched for information about him. I am not a stalker...I am a fan.
Dear Bill Paxton....please get a twitter account.
Dear Friends....Indian Summer is available to rent on Netflix.
Fast forward to March 2006. iKeith had just been laid off from his job and I was 8 months pregnant. I was in the finishing stages of nesting and my favorite actor was about to be on a new show on HBO. I didn't know what a Mormon was, had never heard of a sister wife and had never been to Utah. All I knew was that I might get to see Bill neeked.
I loved this show and quickly picked a favorite sisterwife. I loved the energy and lust for life (and Bill) that Margene had. I admired Bill and his ability to have three loving relationships and be a good father at the same time. I never ever liked Nicki. Edit HTML
Imagine my surprise to find myself LIVING in Utah a little over a year later. I found myself looking for Bill and Margene when we'd go to Salt Lake City. I figured they had to film parts of the show in Utah but I never found them. I also found myself watching BIG LOVE in secrecy. Utah Mormons very much dislike the show and admitting that you watch it....brings wrath (aka Brother Horton) upon your family.
I even encountered a sisterwife or two at my local grocery store. Except that they were the *compound* variety with their big hair and prairie dresses. Whenever I saw a hummer....I wondered if Albie was driving it.
We don't have HBO anymore and I was so bummed when the last season premiered and I knew it would be a year before I'd be able to see it. But NO...that would not be the case at all. Once again...one of my internet friends who have never met me, decides to do something nice for me.
Adrienne shared Big Love with me.
I'm sad that the show is over but I think I'm happy with how they ended it.*mouse over the next part to see spoiler* Each of the wives were able to pursue lives that they were meant to live....and perhaps were held back by being married to three other people. But they are still a family and Bill's legacy lives on. I held my breath during the part when the sisterwives were in the convertable! I thought they were going to have an accident. I just have one question. What happened to Ana? OH and another question...was Teeny in the bathroom during the entire season?
I have GOT TO stop crying now....because it is just a TV show and Margene is not real and her hair won't stay that way forever.
Did you watch Big Love? What did you think of it?
