‘Big Love’ Returns to Deal with ‘Outing’

Jan 16, 2009  •  Post A Comment

HBO’s “Big Love” returns on Sunday to deal with the repercussions of the family’s outing of their polygamous lifestyle, the New York Times says. Meanwhile, the family is also pursuing a fourth wife, an Eastern European waitress whose reluctance to join appears to be waning. The show can be seen as a narrative about “ambivalent assimilation,” as the patriarch wants to hold onto a lifestyle abhorred by most Americans while freely moving about the middle-class circles of mainstream Mormon, the paper says.
