CNN on "Big Love"

I recently blogged on the upcoming controversial series "Big Love." Now CNN.com has released an article about the upcoming HBO series: "I pronounce you man and wife, wife, wife." This story concludes by saying:

"Big Love" should be an oddly comfortable fit with "The Sopranos," which makes its long-awaited return an hour earlier. But despite the similarities (family tussles, power plays and such), there are obvious differences. For instance, on "Big Love," the language gets no rougher than "Oh, my heck," "You dumb-head" and "There's no way in H I'll do that."

With religious fervor, "Big Love" chronicles the struggle to escape an old order, then to pass as conventionally wholesome somewhere new. It's about making big choices and honoring them.

Including wives. "They're the path you've chosen," says Don to Bill. "You gotta pray for guidance, walk it with decency."

On a show full of fascinating murkiness, decency seems the operative reference point. At least, that's one way of seeing "Big Love."

In any case, there's no way in H you should miss seeing it.
