Did anyone else see the last episode of BIG LOVE. In a season full of moronic and half-baked storylines that were never fully explained, the final episode was even worse than what came before it. At one point the Sissy Spacek character tells Bill, he's like a pinata-- that you will never know what will drop. So, too, this whole season. Maybe moving from 12 eps to 9 threw them but a roomful of chimps could write a better season than this. Make that one chimp. And Bill has lost all sympathy-both with two of his wives and all of his fans. Pull the plug on this one HBO.
