‘Big Love’ = big fiction

As good as any repudiation I’ve read that ‘Big Love’ has anything to do with Mormons.

The Spectrum, St. George – www.thespectrum.com -:

So let’s set the record straight. The Henricksons are not Mormons. The Henricksons are not fundamental polygamists. They are a fictional modern-day family who practice the belief that plural marriage is a religious vocation conjured up merely for entertainment purposes. It is not educational or enlightening, nor is it a reflection of Utahns or the bordering polygamous communities of Hildale and Colorado City. In fact, it is no more authentic than the animated movie, “Finding Nemo,” with talking fish and reformed carnivorous sharks.

Take it for what it is – a television show trying to get ratings. Along those same lines, you’ve got the power to work your remote control. Turn it on if you want to tune in, change the channel if you don’t.
