"Big Love" Returns Tonight

"Big Love" Returns Tonight

While we're all still mulling Sunday's season finale of "The Sopranos," there's another buzzworthy HBO show set to make its return tonight: the Bill Paxton polygamy drama "Big Love."

I've just started getting caught up on the first season of this show, which centers on Paxton as a Utah businessman who seems shockingly normal for a guy who has three wives living in three separate houses. Already, I love the way the show mixes its unconventional setup with the very commonplace problems of raising children, succeeding at work and living a standard suburban life. The show seemed to gain momentum throughout its first year, and I'm excited to see what the producers have in store for us this season.

The return of the show also marks HBO's first attempt to put original programming on Monday nights since the final season of "Six Feet Under" in 2005. That show floundered in the weekday spot and ended up being moved back to Sundays, where it finished out its run. Though I selfishly wish "Big Love" were airing on Sundays with the rest of HBO's awesome shows, I hope it gets some attention on Monday nights. To watch a dreamy and somewhat surreal promo for the new season,

I'm so glad "Big Love" is back! I'm SO MAD that BL been kicked out of its old Sunday timeslot to make room for that new show "John in Cincinnati" - especially since the first episode was terrible. I'm willing to give it a few more episodes since it's from the "Deadwood" people, but that's it, HBO.

I love the promo for the new season. Never watched the show, though. Maybe I'll rent season one and start from there. I'm not a Bill paxton fan though. I think he's kind of a dry actor. Is he better in this show?
