Christian Toto on ‘Big Love’

The HBO hit:

Sex. Religion. Intolerance. Acceptance. It’s all here, and the new episodes blend those ingredients with considerable finesse.
It’s still dicey enough material to push some viewers permanently away, but those who embraced Tony Soprano’s whack-a-gangster exploits should find enough moral wiggle room to relish the drama here.

He’s got a point. It’s hard to picture people calling up their cable providers and cancelling their HBO in outrage: “Foul-mouthed murdering Mafioso, OK. But I absolutely draw the line at polygamy!”
