Of course the most exciting news comes from HBO. The long time envelope-pusher is striking out again into the wilds of sexual improvisation and misogyny. In ‘Big Love’ the cable network introduces the first sitcom which centers around a man and his three lady friends and all of their children. Set in Salt Lake City (surprise!), Bill Paxton plays the “normal” middle aged, polygamist husband who strings three concubines, er, I mean wives along, seeking to hold their household(s) together.
I don’t know; this is all really very boring actually. What I really want is for someone to be brave, really courageous. Quit pussy-footing around with this tame Mormon stuff; go for the gold. I want to see a sitcom about the exploits of a “normal” middle aged man in love with little boys. Of course being a ‘principled’ man, he would marry them along with their pet Labradors. Come on, HBO, is that as good as you can do?
