For a while now, Delissa has been in love with the Big Love show on HBO. The concept is pretty far out there as far as I am concerned, but it does make for a great show.
The show revolves around a family of Mormon polygamist who happen to live in Utah. The land of the Mormons from all that I have ever been told. They are trying to live a normal life outside of the Mormon reservations that exist in the state. I am not exactly sure if this is the case, but the show says that it is. I am honestly too lazy to go look it up.
The family lives everyday life just like the rest of us, but their homes are all connected together through the backyard. So to the neighbors, there is nothing going on. It is crazy. The man sleeps with a different wife every night based on the schedule they have come up with, and they are trying to add another wife. The husband owns several home improvement warehouses, and they are looking to buy a casino so that they can make sure that their families are taken care of.
The real losers here are the children because they are unable to show everyone the real lives. No one can come over because people can’t see the life that they are living. In most cases, the children want to escape the life, but they are unable to. If they leave, they are brought back to the reservation so that they can continue the life they were brought up in.
The show is honestly a great show, and it makes you want to watch week after week. We are in the process of watching Season 3 so that we can watch the current season. I highly recommend that you go back to the beginning so that you can get the full scope of the show. Tom Hanks is one of the producers of the show, and I believe that his wife brought the idea to him. Who would have thought it would have been such a hit.
