It is a great show !
If you like Zach Galifianakis, ( The 'Fat Jesus' from The Hangover) then you will love this show. Also Ted Danson, and many other mainstream actors.

*sigh* Just watched the season finale.

I was so disappointed that they didn't consider going the poly route, especially since Bill and Eric have been getting along so much better than normal. Of course, I still think Eric would make a terrible metamour ("See, Sookie? Bill's ok with it!"). But it seemed unrealistic to me that not one of them at least even suggested it.

Maybe next season?

I agree...I soooooo wanted them to at least consider poly.....

True Blood (both the show and the books) is ideal for some poly, it's a shame it never quite seems to reach the point of Sookie trying it. I wouldn't have thought Bill would be too good at sharing her but maybe.

I did however see an episode of The Mentalist (?) that had a poly couple in it. Wife was dying, husband and boyfriend both could have done it. Polyamoury was touched on, discussed in brief, and then moved on. It wasn't relevant to the case.
I liked how the writers hadn't made the people participating in the unusual arrangement the "baddies", which is what I was expecting.

There's a separate thread about that episode of The Mentalist. Just do a search.

I wish they would do a poly storyline, but not with Bill. He is a classic abusive partner.

I loved this idea in the show. I also really love Grey's Anatomy's relationship dynamic with Sloan, Torres, and Robbins.

Default Poly on Private Practice...

Just saw the scene where 2 women and a man disclose that they are "ALL" in love.... It should be interesting to see how this plays out.
