Trivia

Amanda Seyfried said in an interview she was watching the show with her parents and freaked out when her sex scene came up. "'I was sitting there watching and all of a sudden, it cut to a scene where two people are having sex, and it's me! Having sex! I just thought, 'No, no, no!' It was so much more graphic than I remembered. I was horrified." See more »

What I truly LOVE about BIG LOVE!
18 June 2007 | by hobbyhobSee all my reviews

Yes, it has a nice complexity of characters, who are ever being revealed to us. Yes, you really don't need to know much about the Mormons to get this show. But what I really love is how it points out how very few people in our supposedly "free society" are truly free to be who they are without fear of judgment, or worse, legal hassles and entanglements. Little by little, our freedoms have been whittled down by those among us who think they know best for ALL of us. If you don't believe me, go find a cancer patient who wants to smoke pot for their nausea and pain. Go ask the Californian who adores their pet ferrets but must hide them from the dept of fish and game. Ask the person who exclusively prefers the company of someone of their own sex yet fears losing their job if the wrong people find out.

This show is for anyone who enjoys great television, but it is mostly for those of us who know what its like to not be truly free to be who and what we are without fear.
