Big Love


Tonight’s episode of the HBO drama Big Love was frankly disappointing. This entire season has annoyed me more than anything. The series seems to have fallen into the same trap as most soap opera, with too many oddball plotlines.

A big problem this season has been the death (murder, actually) of UEB “Prophet” Roman Grant – played by Harry Dean Stanton. His successor son Albie, is too much of a lightweight to pose a serious counterweight to Bill Henrickson. Further complicating things, Albie’s (gay) love interest bears a more than passing resemblence to the Federal Prosecutor, with whom Nicki shared an unrequited crush in the previous season. Making things even worse- Bill and Barb’s youngest daughter (Teency) has been replaced by an entirely new actress.
