Release Date:January 5,2010
The HBO® series Big Love returns to DVD with its 10-episode third season on January 5, 2010, just before the eagerly-awaited fourth season premieres on the network. Honored with nominations from both the Emmys® and Golden Globes®, Big Love tells the story of Salt Lake City native Bill Henrickson, a modern polygamist, who tries to juggle three wives, eight kids, three houses and his home improvement stores. Featuring a dynamic ensemble cast including Bill Paxton, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloë Sevigny and Ginnifer Goodwin, Big Love: The Complete Third Season features bonus materials including mini-episodes and character POVs.
Big Love has sparked a host of rave reviews since its first season debut, with TV critics like the San Francisco Chronicle, the New York Times and The Hollywood Reporter calling the series “compelling,” “ingenious,” and “…rich,…complex…intense.” In Big Love: The Complete Third Season, new personal and professional challenges force Bill to try to protect his family by diversifying his businesses and building neighborhood goodwill. Over the course of the 10 episodes, Bill deals with a Native American tribe on a potential partnership in a Mormon-friendly casino; faces unexpected consequences from the imprisonment of “prophet” Roman Grant; confronts crises with family members; and contends with a crackdown on polygamists around the country. And as if his life wasn’t complicated enough, he wants a fourth wife who can produce more children.
Big Love: The Complete Third Season includes:
· “Three Past Midnight” – three mini-episodes that show the reactions of several of the characters to news that a polygamist compound in Kansas has been raided and state troopers have taken children into custody. The three pieces are titled “Margene and Nicki,” “Bill and Barb” and “Ben and Sarah.”
· “Their Stories So Far” – vignettes that allow viewers to catch up to what’s going on in Salt Lake City as several of the characters provide their point of views on past storylines.
