Well, folks, after a season of increasingly outrageous plot-lines, BIG LOVE has gone off the rails. Understandably, there's a need to whip up drama to the point of climax, but this year the various under-developed and under-motivated plot-lines have collapsed under the weight of badly constructed story-arcs. Take for example the scene of Nicolette's near-operation at the clinic, while Adaleen is in another room, suddenly hitting her captor and showing up miraculously un-drugged, to rescue her daughter... The story beats are not only unbelievable, they fail to exploit the drama the series hoped to whip up. It would be preposterous under any other circumstances.
Basically? It was a season of strange and hard-to-fathom plots being tossed around, and somehow, at the end of it all, none of it was really all that FUN. The premise, I'm afraid, has run its course.
