This is a show I really love and I think discusses a lot of valuable issues. I think I said this once in this thread: I find absolutely nothing morally wrong with polygamy if all parties are legal adults and consent. Several faiths have polygamy at their heart (not just mormonism, polygamy is still largely practiced in many areas of the muslim and hindu world). That's what makes this story so interesting and complex. I think whether people dislike the lifestyle and find it repugnant or not, the show portrays people who are all reasoned adults, who all have informed consent, and none of them is being deceived or prevented from leaving the situation through coercion. So, where does this show go from here? The store may take a hit, but nowhere near as big as I think people suppose, it's a minor scandal, but Bill isn't running a compound and there are no "young" brides. This is a show that has incredible potential for some great drama and to ask interesting social questions. How well it persues them in the first season was off-and-on. I loved the central themes, but at times it felt as though they struggled with a central thought and purpose. I'm looking forward to season 2 and see where this goes.
