If you don't watch Big Love, the HBO series about modern day polygamists living in Salt Lake City, you must. It is simply one of the best shows on television (and second to none when it comes to providing a nuanced analysis of gender and sexuality issues). In case you haven't noticed, this is a plug. Please watch! Check your local paper for listings in your neck of the woods. I need people to discuss the show with and I know no one who watches, which is a shame for you as well as for me, because other than Gossip Girl and Mad Men, it's the only great show on television at the moment, in my opinion. Please watch and then we can discuss! Okay, well think about that while I'm in the British countryside this weekend, "freezing my tits off", as the British would say. I used to think this was an inappropriate saying, but the teacher at the school where I teach debating used it today in front of her pupils, and she's a feminist as well as an educator, so I'm assuming it's not profane or anti-feminist to say it.
