Big Love Thoughts

I still love the show, but... I don't know. I feel like they're trying to stuff about twice as much plot into this season as there is room for, juggling so many plots that they keep forgetting things. Remember that Bill was starting a church? What happened to that? And is Amanda Seyfried still on the show?

Sunday's episode was just ridiculous- breaking into the compound in Mexico? Really? The episode was just one deus ex machina after another. It also doesn't help that the show decided to steal the entire background of the Jack Abramoff scandal- right down to the Scotland junction and a Ralph Reed stand-in- and it seems the only reason Bill is running for office is so they can make him into a John Edwards figure.

That said, the show is still very entertaining.
