How Much Does Television Affect Your Views?

Last night, I met up with a friend who I haven’t seen in about three years. A lot has changed since 2009 when she came down from Boston to visit me in New York City; we’ve both earned our Master’s degrees and started new jobs, and she got married and is pregnant with her first […]

Recap: Big Love Series Finale, “When Men and Mountains Meet”

First, apologies on not doing a live blog, but in retrospect I’m really glad I didn’t.  I needed to let this episode marinate for a while before I was able to appreciate it for what it was.  Big Love has always done that to me, I need to let the episodes sneak up on me […]

Big Love: “The Noose Tightens”

This week on Big Love, the only gun was the one Alby pointed at Nicki and subsequently used to shoot the plot device named Verden, and everyone thinks Margie is in a cult.  “The Noose Tightens” is everything that’s great about Big Love, and another example of how fantastic this show can be when it […]

Big Love: Til Death Do We Part

It’s all guns, pills and teenage girls on Big Love as we slide into the final few episodes of the season.  The tension is building, and on Sunday night, all the cracks in the ice leading up to the end of this series joined into the black hole we’ve seen the characters descend into in […]

“What’s going on with us, Bill? No one’s ever tried to kill me before!” “You know I was a missionary for two years, Margene.  In a way, it’s where I learned sales.”

Big Love and Female Archetypes

Normally I would be writing my Big Love recap, but due to some technical difficulties I wasn’t able to watch it.  So what’s better than watching the women of Big Love? Analyzing them!  For fun, I ran them through this “What Female Archetype Are You,” quiz and here’s what I got: Barb: Barb is the […]

Big Love Recap – Season 5, Episode 1.

I come at this season of Big Love as being pretty much the only person I know who is not completely skeeved out by polygamy and having used the first seasons of Big Love as an example of why modern polygamy doesn’t have to be so bad.  Bill wasn’t too patriarchal and they presented a […]
