Big Love on HBO

Nowadays, I've got hooked on to HBO's Big Love series. It's not just about a man who has multiple wives, a secret wish that most Indian men are likely to entertain though outwardly they would be too chivalrous to admit so.
Well, coming back to Big Love, it is about a polygamist group, which is banned in the US, and how they live under the fear about the society which we all know will not take kindly to such an arrangement in civilized society.
The main lead features is played by Bill Paxton. As Bill Henrickson, he plays the role of a successful professional based in Utah, to perfection. Always well dressed, well behaved and a decent family man who loves each of his wives, he is the epitome of a fine gentleman.
In Big Love, he runs a successful chain of hardware stores called Home Plus and his home is amidst 3 different wives who live like siblings but in three different homes. All the three homes have one unifying backyard.
The first wife is played perfectly by Jeanne Trippleh…
