I didn't think it was possible, but Alby may grow up to be creepier than Roman.

I think the wives appeal to men though.  I have a male friend who says he'd gladly do any/or all three of the wives.

I was a bit surprise with Nikki. I saw strength and for the first time I saw honesty. I said I didn't like her, now I have some new found respect for her. I thought this episode was full of emotions and so intense. I will be buying the second season!

Okay, as of tonight Im up to date on the episodes and Ive seen all the extras on-demand. I wont be able to watch this week's episode until later in the week but I just LOVE how the character development has really blossomed this season. Im digging this show even more this season than I did last. I feel like when I watch it Im transported to their world...and to me, that is a sign of a good story.
It is exciting that the concept of poly is being introduced to mainstream America through these characters. It seems like last year the writers really wanted us to identify with Barb and now that we like her, they are presenting some interesting and integral poly issues...and we are watching and relating to these people because the issues they have are the exact same ones that face any relationship.
It's just a darn good show.
Katy, next time you come up to WNY we are going to play Juniper Creek and put on our Best Whites and have a group picture taken :-).




you really feel like the writers wanted to make Barb likeable and relatable? that's funny because i've disliked her from the very beginning, she's just so selfish and flighty. she doesn't seem to care about the principle at all, and if she had her way she'd be the only one married to Bill and the other wives and all the children who she didn't give birth to could go fly a kite. i REALLY started detesting her when during that period when she and Bill had that "affair" last season, although he was foul for that one too. and then for her to accept a nomination for Mother of the Year, knowing the huge risks to her family, just the epitome of self-centeredness. that actually made me happy for her humiliation at the Mother of the Year ceremony, although i was devastated for the rest of the family.

although this season her character seems to be more focused on the family (so far), i hope that continues.


Im not sure I think they were trying to make her likeable, Im saying that they focused more on developing her character at first because she was number one and I imagine that many women have never thought about being in a poly situation, much less being anything but number one. So, all the married women out there who are not in plural marriages would most likely identify best with Barb at the beginning... as the existing wife, if they were to imagine "going poly", they would be in Barb's situation, so to speak, and so, I think they focused on her character a little bit more.
I also like how they focused on relationships in the first episodes before they introduced all the drama this time. I just think it's really intelligently written.

As for Barb, she isnt "about the principle" but she agreed to it and to me that says a lot about her love for Bill and her commitment to her family. If she had said "no" to bringing Nikki in, I dont think there would have been a poly situation. I cant see Bill doing it without her blessing. So, I disagree with you. I dont think it is an ideal situation for Barb, but I think she loves the other wives as best she can and that she is growing and learning as a result of the situation. In a new, potentially scary and unorthodox situation, that's really the most you can ask from a person, at least in my book.

I also didn't like the affair story line.  I thought it did a lot of disservice to the family, especially the sister wives.
Anyway, tonight, don't forget.

Katy, I was angry with Barb and Bill for having the affair, but I wont say I hated the story line because it brought up some issues and we got to see how they worked through them and in the end did the right thing.

I will be out tonite, and we dont have cable at Daddy's house anyway, but I will watch in on-demand next weekend.

No spoilers!

oh things are getting interesting...but i wanted to ask about something from (i think) last weeks episode...
did anyone else break into fits of laughter when Roman said "i don't care if she got up on the table and danced the tootsy wootsy (i think)"...after Alby threw a hissy fit...?
i saw it on one of the on demand extra's and had another round of the giggles tonight...
oh and i understand that that little girl is fucked up in the head...but i still want to smack her sometimes....

Wayne playing with the rosary was pretty funny.
It was fun seeing Nikki look at her clothes and wonder "is this passable enough?"

I for one went back with the same feelings at had for Nikki. Nikki is very flighty and she has need for excessive attention. Barb save the world idea is getting on my nerves. Margene who went to catholic school is becoming more manipulative and I do see some serious growth within her. At thought was upset with the idea of Bill moving towards making the family bigger again. But Margene also knows that if she gets to this person first...she has an ally and a bit more power.

Bill disappoints me. He has too much pride and too much bitterness.

Yes, Barb's lets save everyone, even the people who have screwed us it's starting to get to be a bit much.
I do like the way she is supporting Nikki & Bill being able to be out, even though I find it odd that it would be in a Catholic arena, abut I guess that's what makes it safe, no one knows them there.  I also see Margene as wanting to be the one who welcomes the new girl into the family.  Should be interesting to see how this all plays out, is Margene sincere, or is this purely a power play on her part?
