Catch Up on Big Love in Four Minutes

This "Big Love in Four Minutes" video HBO just put together makes me a little sad, because it's still going to be a long, long wait to see the show's third season. Thanks to the writers' strike, the series — which should have been on right now — won't be seen again till January 2009.

The good news is, that should give anyone who hasn't seen the first two seasons of the drama plenty of time to get caught up the old-fashioned way, by renting DVDs or checking out episodes On Demand. But if you're just not sure you want to commit, this four-minute summary is a pretty good one, with all the typical dry humor these ". . . in x minutes" videos tend to have. (I especially like the little "bleeeep" noise that keeps recurring when they talk about video poker.)

At least I'll be able to get a fix of some of the actors in other roles before January — Amanda Seyfried in Mamma Mia and Ginnifer Goodwin in He's Just Not That Into You. For now, though, it's just good to see Bill and his wives together, however briefly. To check out the video, just

My sister told me about this show a few months ago and I've already finished both seasons on DVD. Then I found out it wouldn't return until January, so sad!

This is easily one of the best shows on television right now (well, in January, that is -- boo!). The characters, dialogue, and stories are warm, funny, tense, and provocative all at once. I know the concept really weirds some people out, but give it at least 2 episodes, and I promise you'll be hooked!

Such a good show. I'm in the same boat as MollyKat though. We'll have to find another way to get our fix!

I was just reminded of how much I like that show and now I'm sad because I don't have HBO anymore. But maybe by the time it comes back I'll have it again.
