Product Overview

The critically acclaimed hit series Big Love returns for its second break-out season. Bill Henrickson works hard and plays by the rules. All he wants in return is a happy, secure, normal life for his family. Is that too much to ask? Maybe so. For a polygamist like Bill, the American Dream comes with strings attached.

Season 2 opens with even more drama, as Bill's mission to learn who tipped off the authorities and exposed his first wife, Barb, as a polygamist escalates. Not surprisingly, his search will lead him to the polygamist compound of Juniper Creek where his primary suspect is Roman Grant. Bill contemplates changes in his personal and professional life that promise to impact every member of his family.

This four disc collection includes all 12 episodes from The Complete Second Season of Big Love!

Editors Note
Note Life is never simple for the Henricksons, a Utah fundamentalist Mormon family. BIG LOVE: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON opens on a dramatic note as the clan tries to discover who outed Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn) as a polygamist. All signs point to sleazy patriarch Roman (Harry Dean Stanton) and the Juniper Creek compound. On a lighter note, Bill (Bill Paxton) falls for Ana, a Serbian waitress at the local diner, and envisages the idea of a fourth wife. Meanwhile, pregnant Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin) takes a shine to Ana, and uptight Nicki (Chloe Sevigny) endures more family problems.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review The most striking thing about HBO's captivating new drama "Big Love" is that it starts in the middle, without pause for background or explanation, chronicling the life of a polygamist and his three wives as if they were just another family, with more complicated issues. It's a bold move, tossing off crumbs of backstory through the first five episodes...As with HBO's best dramas, "Big Love's" point of differentiation from broadcast TV isn't defined by its graphic sex scenes. Rather, what's unusual is how the show allows these relationships to unfold so assiduously, fostering curiosity about what prompted Barb to accept this arrangement.
