well bumping means posting for the purpose of moving the thread back to the top on the forum list, usually in hopes of getting more action, lol.

subbing, hmmmm depends on the context but in this forum means subscribing to the thread so you get emails letting you know when there are new posts.


what else has Ginnifer Goodwin been in?

Mona Lisa Smile. She was also a regular on the TV show Ed. She most recently played Viviane Cash Johnnys' first wife in Walk the Line.

I loved it! Looks like it will be good!

And it looks like Ginnifer Goodwins character is nursing. WTG HBO! They had BF in the Sopranos and Six Feet Under as well.

Thank you for starting this thread, Arduinna

I watched the show again last night. Bill Paxton is yummy. Ginnifer is gorgeous, too. I like that scene of their night.

I really like how the show already has so many layers to it.

I watched on Sunday too. I found it interesting, but am not sure I really liked it. It might be like most other new HBO shows, I might have to let it grow on me. But I felt like something was missing......I am not sure what.........

I am definitely curious to follow along as the season progresses.

I understand your train of thought. I think most of HBO's dramas build on, giving us just that little bit of info each week. Nothing like alot of regular shows that wrap it up each week. Even shows with ongoing things, still wrap up their little "mini-point" within an episode...KWIM?

Very true Alkenny. HBO circumvents the traditional formula show for sure. And the characters are usually complex enough that you really have to get to know them before you become emotionally invested in their stories.
I am definitely going to give Big Love a chance, but I am not a completely addicted and dedicated watcher quite yet.

Just subbing

Haven't watched yet (sitting on my DVR), but probably will tonight

I loved it...but find it hard to believe they is no raging jealousy about sharing a husband. Maybe there will be? I hope so!

Oh, I saw some in there...and from the preview there will be more next week!
post #15 of 1049
When did the show start? I wanted to order HBO to watch it! Have I missed much?
post #16 of 1049
thanks for starting this thread!

I still want to watch it one more time this week as I missed a few parts last sunday. I think its going to be great.

I really like Bill Paxton. And the middle wife (chloe, is her real name I think). I like that she is from the same place he is (the clan) and that she has a serious shopping addiction! She also seems to have her own credit cards and her own checking account so I dont think anyone has any idea she has such a huge problem.

I'll definitely be tuning in next week.

I like how they give us one little crumb after another and force us to use our speculatory imaginations.

So, Wife #1 had cancer and shortly after he married #2. The first thought that popped in my head was, "that piece of sh!t did that to his wife while she was going through cancer!".... but that's the obvious conclusion, right? So that means that #1 probably came up with the whole idea to begin with?

The final scene... with the boner! LMAO!

The poisoning of the father? Hello! Isn't it obvious to the people that the prophet is poisoning him --- especially after bringing a pitcher of whatever and telling them to have him drink it all.

I don't understand why he is tithing to the cult anyway, other than the fact that he is married to the "Prophets" daughter. And that is wierd anyway since he chose to leave the group and clearly he and wife #1 (can't remember her name atm) don't support the cult either.

I didn't have any issue with him marrying wife number 2 when wife number 1 had cancer. I don't know? I'm a cancer survivor and had only a 30% cance of making it and I would have wanted my husband to remarry and be happy. And I support open relationships (between consenting adults) so I am sure I have a different view than many. Seems odd though that given the possibility that she would die that wife number 1 would want the prophets daughter raising her kids if she died, since she seems very against the group and how they live.

Just doesn't seem plausible, so I hope they explain.

I figure that he isn't really tithing to the cult, but is instead paying them back with interest. Maybe he received money to start his store from the leader, in exchange for marrying his daughter? Very mafia like.
post #20 of 1049
: I read that somewhere already-something about in addition to the pressures from his wives, he is being harrassed by a father in law who he owes or owed money to. There was definitely an element of mafia like behavior.
