"Big Love" on HBO

We started getting HBO about a month ago (free 3 month special deal) & I've gotten hooked on their series "Big Love". It's about some families who are polygamists in the modern day. It's not "Six Feet Under" but it is very good!

Only thing is... we weren't planning nto keep HBO after the free months end because they just keep showing the same movies over & over... BUT now that I've discovered this show... hmmm..

Actually, they are not LDS. You cannot be a polygamist and be LDS. The LDS church hasn't practiced polygamy in over 100 years and doing so now will result in excommunication from the church. (I'm afraid you'll find this is a sore point with many members of the church.)

I'm sorry Cindy. I must've misunderstood what they said on the show. (I know they don't condone polygamy any more, but I thought the people on the show were doing it anyway... kind of a rebellious/more traditional strain of the religion.)I'll edit the post & take out the LDS part.

some of the characters in the show are in fact LDS. Once you get into the story lines further you'll know what I'm talking about. I'm not a spolier. :~)
