Big Love: The Complete Fifth Season - Preview

Big Love: The Complete Fifth Season

Preview by Jack Foley

IT’S time to bid farewell to the provocative and unmissable drama Big Love, as the fifth and final instalment Big Love: The Complete Fifth Season is released on DVD on August 6, 2012 from HBO Home Entertainment.

After 53 episodes of the intriguing and wholly originally drama, the Golden Globe® winner and eight-time Emmy® nominated series will also be available as a complete box set – Big Love: The Complete Collection on August 6, 2012.

Big Love features an all star cast, including Bill Paxton (Titanic, Apollo 13), Jeanne Tripplehorn (Grey Gardens, Basic Instinct), Chloë Sevigny (Hit & Miss, Boys Don’t Cry) and Ginnifer Goodwin (Once Upon A Time, Walk the Line).

Catch up with Bill Henrickson (Paxton) a polygamist, who lives in suburban Salt Lake City, Utah, balancing the needs of his three wives (Tripplehorn, Sevigny and Goodwin), nine children, three houses and expanding businesses while attempting to enter into the world of politics.

Everything comes to light in the aftermath of Bill Henrickson’s announcement, witnessed at the end of Season 4, when he shook Utah to its core by announcing he was a polygamist.

Rather than being embraced for their honesty, the Henrickson family is engulfed by hostility from neighbours, Home Plus employees, casino partners, students at their kids’ schools and even fellow polygamists hoping to keep their personal lives private.

Meanwhile, at Juniper Creek, Alby Grant returns from a self-imposed desert exile with revenge on his mind. Can the Henrickson’s survive this flood of ill-will?

As the season comes to end, the much-awaited chance to find out if Bill’s fateful choice to go public will change everything. And rest assured – things will change.

Special features provide an insight to all five seasons with episodic featurettes with creators and executive producers Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer, plus a seven minute Season 1-4 recap to prepare you for the grand finale.

Also included is a 25 minute End of Days feature looking back on Big Love, with interviews from the cast and creators as they bid farewell to this acclaimed drama.

Big Love: The Complete Fifth Season and Big Love: The Complete Collection comes to you on August 6, 2012 courtesy of HBO Home Entertainment.
