HBO Series : Big Love

Big Love is the first American TV drama series devoted to the subject of polygamy. Produced by HBO, Big Love starred Bill Paxton as Bill Henrickson, the owner of a hardware-store chain headquartered in Salt Lake City. Although Bill was no longer an active member of the extremist Mormon sect United Effort Brotherhood, he remained married to three different women at the same time, who lived in neighboring houses with one connected backyard.

Played by Jeanne Tripplehorn as Barb, she is Bill's first and only legal wife, who loved her husband and respected his religious beliefs but wished that she could be certain that she was foremost in his heart. Wife number two, was Nicki Henrickson played by Chloe Sevigny, who had grown up at the United Effort Brotherhood's Juniper Creek compound was somewhat ignorant of the ways of the outside world. The youngest of the wives, played by Ginnifer Goodwin, was Margene Henderson, who was understandably confused and disoriented by the unique situation in her household.

Because he lived and worked in a country where polygamy was a crime, Bill was forced to jump through hoops to keep his multiple-marital status a secret, thus enabling wife Nicki's father, Roman, self-styled "prophet" of Juniper Creek, to blackmail Bill into giving him a sizeable chunk of his business profits. Also in the cast were Bruce Dern and Grace Zabriksie as Bill's parents, Franklin and Lois, who still lived at Juniper Creek, as did their other grown son, Joey, who in turn had given up a promising football career to remain at the compound with his wife, Wanda. Other main cast members included Daveight Chase as Roman's new child bride, Rhonda; Joel McKinnon Miller as Bill's best friend, business partner, and fellow polygamist Don Embry; and Amanda Seyfried, Douglas Smith, and Jolean Wejbe as Bill and Barbara's children, Sarah, Ben, and Tancy. Though the basic situation was frankly nothing to laugh at, a great deal of wry and provocative humor arose from the byplay amongst the many cast members, and from the tortuously twisted plot convolutions.

I really like this show and hope it becomes as popular as the other great HBO series.

just an amazing show! and an amazing last season. Big love has ever been a great series, and i'll regret it because big love talked about family, lobe, anger. Big love doesn't nly focus on polygamous, it focus on life. I watch Big love Online

thе structure of youг blog? Ιts very
