I know that you all are waiting for the third season to start. And let me tell that the third season of the series will premiere on January 25, 2009. I also know that the series have been liked and loved a lot by everyone. I myself have seen the series and I am too waiting for the third season. But on a serious note, do you think that such kind of topics (polygamy) should be given such hype. Don’t get me wrong anywhere, please. Entertaining people with a TV series is one thing. But promoting such issues is another.
‘Big Love‘ is the story of Salt Lake City native Bill Henrickson, who has three wives - Barb, Nicki and Margene and seven kids. The three are completely aware of each others presence in Bill’s life. The story revolves around how Bill manages between his three wives, kids, three houses and his home improvement stores. Because he lived and worked in a country where polygamy was a crime, Bill was forced to jump through hoops to keep his multiple-marital status a secret.
Now with such kind of things coming on television, I don’t know what kind of effect it will leave on general audiences. Are they trying to tell people that you can manage three wives at a time or are they publicizing polygamy, which is against the law?
Well I don’t have anything personal against the series. It is an entertaining series if we don’t get such issues in between. It is just this polygamy issue that did not appeal to me. It’s possible that it did appeal to many of you, but sadly it did not appeal to me. And, so I thought of writing on it. If nothing much I would at least like you to think on it.
