Goofs

Barb has a list of everyone's birthdays and social security numbers. However, in some episodes the birth years listed do not match the ages given for the characters. Nikki and Margene's birthdays are actually the birthdays of the actresses playing them. The birth year given for Barb would make her the same age as Nikki, but she is clearly portrayed as being about 10 years older. See more »

A new approach of the family concept by HBO
23 October 2006 | by gharbinourSee all my reviews

"The Sopranos", "Six feet under", and now "Big Love". Hbo offers us a totally new outlook of family, this time by describing the harsh quotidian of a successful polygamist. The family according to Hbo is always subject of greater afflictions than the regular family. In "The sopranos", the father's profession was the issue (the mafia), in "Six feet under", the father's profession was once again the issue (death itself), and in "Big love", the father chose to live against the rules of society, he chose to be a polygamist and that's a big problem because it takes a lots of responsibilities to have three houses, three wives and plenty of children. Somehow, in all these TV series, everything rotates around the problematic of being a father and in a larger sense HBO talks to us about MORALITY. The way of life of these men is really the main idea. "Big Love" is a really great and profound show. As always, HBO prefers the realistic treatment of his subject rather than the inner and comical sense of polygamy. The cast is unbelievable, and the score is great. In spite of the dramatic aspect of this show, I find it really entertaining. Anyway, if you like HBO's shows, you will love "Big Love".
