A compelling series!,
This review is from: Big Love: Complete HBO Season 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
This definitely did not sound like my sort of thing at all - a television series based around a polygamist family?! It sounds like something many people would steer well clear from but, after being given this boxset as a gift, complete with countless recommendations I decided to give it a watch. It started off slowly and for the first few episodes, I could take it or leave it, but WOW I am glad I persevered! It has become compelling viewing, to the extent that I am now scouring internet online television-streaming sites to get my 'Big Love' fix as all five seasons are not out on DVD. The acting is superb, the storylines exciting and although it sounds strange, I have actually learned a great deal about polygamy! Informative, entertaining and strangely addictive watching - do not miss out!
