The show is not interested in endorsing or deriding the practice of polygamy, but instead, holding it up as a funhouse mirror to mainstream constructions of "family." In doing so, it reveals family's many absurdities.
The performances by the three lead actresses (and by Amanda Seyfried as Paxton and Tripplehorn's eldest daughter) are so strong, and the nuances of life in such a complicated relationship so endlessly fascinating.
