Big Love

I'm normally a comedy/reality TV junkie, but about a year ago one of my BFFs told me I needed to Netflix Big Love. And OH. MY. GOSH. did I get addicted to that show really fast. Sometimes Matt comes home from work while I'm watching it, and he will watch for a few minutes, but not before I have to spend about 20 minutes telling him all the DRAMAZ that happened in the previous hour-long episode.

For those who have never seen it, Big Love is a drama about a polygamist family — a husband, his three wives and nine children — as they navigate life both behind closed doors and in public, while dealing with a painful family histories and a corrupt, self-declared prophet that aims to interfere in every aspect of their lives.

I'm at the beginning of season 5, and I know this is the last season, and I don't want it to end because the show is FASCINATING and grip-the-edge-of-your-seat good, and filled with so much drama it makes my head spin. I can barely fathom that this is almost the end, because there is still so much left up in air!

And it's really frustrating that the DVD-makers only put two or three episodes per disc, because I rush through them all in a day, and then I have to ship the DVD back, and wait to receive one of Matt's movies (because we alternate to be fair), and then wait for him to watch his movie and send it back before I can get the next one.

Did anyone else watch Big Love when it was on? What shows are you obsessed with?
