I don't have HBO this year! I'm really hoping I can find somewhere to watch it online. If not, I'm sure I'll break down and order HBO in a few weeks.

Hooray! I watched the whole last 2 seasons on the computer- try www.sidereel.com and www.surfthechannel.com. Now we got a big a$$ tv with tivo so I can watch with ease.

Yes, I'm waiting for the first episode to show up on my cable box's schedule so I can set it to record. Last year's writers strike is responsible for the delay; I'm so glad BL is back and hopefully will be renewed again (and again and again...). It's really a well-written show with great performances.

Maybe because of the concert in DC for Obama. It was broadcast by HBO, and if you had cable TV, you had access to the concert via HBO.

Glad you enjoyed BL!

It's the only show that DH and I watch together.

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.

I can't believe no one has made any comments yet! What did everybody think?

I wasn't blown away but I enjoyed it. It was great to see what's going on with the family after so long! The Nicki going to work and being a spy story line is pretty interesting, I wonder where that will lead.

I hope we get some flashbacks about margene's pregnancy and birth!

I don't know what I think about Anna. The family seems perfect with the 3 wives but I know they have to add drama with the 4th wife question!

I just watched it last night- I am so happy it's back! I'm a little bummed that the story picks up so much later, but it makes sense as the kids are so much older than the last season. I'm with everyone else- I hope they have some flashbacks.

I can't believe the scene with Albie in the bathroom. That just shocked me. I'm wondering who put the hit on him but I really think it's his mother. I think there's going to be a lot of drama this season, with Nicki being a spy and the 4th wife and Roman's trial and Barb's cancer.

I don't like Anna. And, I hate that he had sex with her. Even though he takes things to the extreme to protect his family, you always felt like he was a man with strong moral conviction. And then he can't keep it in his pants? I hated that. It made the whole process of adding a wife cheap.

I too think his mother put the hit on Albie. She knows he tried to kill Roman and now he's taken over the compound and pushing everyone out.

I do not want Barb to have cancer. That makes me sad

I was proud of Nikki for what she did on the roof. That was a good out.

But, what the heck is up with Teenie showing other kids porn?

So, is anybody mad that Bill and Anna hooked up? It's one thing to cheat on one wife, but on three? One one hand, he's supposed to be Mr. Super-husband, and then he does this? I don't know. Not good in my book. I wonder if Bill's heading for a downturn.

I am not happy either that Bill hooked up with Ana. I agree with amcal that it cheapens the process. But--- it does show that he is human and that even someone with strong moral convictions can have trouble resisting temptation. It could lead to some interesting character development.

I love the scene at the block party where they assume everyone is ignoring them because they found out that they were polygamists but really it was because Teeny was showing porn. And I love that Nikki could see what was going on and saved the day.

What was up with that scene with Wanda and the bird? Did that strike anyone else as odd? I mean, Wanda herself is odd, but the bird thing just seemed a little weird to me.

I thought he did the same thing when he hooked up with Margene? I'm thrilled Ana is staying around.
