Big Shocks in Big Love's Final Season

Ginnifer Goodwin, Bill Paxton and Jeanne Tripplehorn

The cat's out of the bag in the fifth and final season of Big Love: Bill Henrickson (Bill Paxton), Utah's newly elected State Senator, has announced that he and his family are polygamists — and it's not sitting well with everyone.

"I don't think Bill regrets [the announcement], although I think he has underestimated the amount of animosity and persecution he faces," Paxton said at the Los Angeles premiere on January 12. "But he has to try to reform the image of plural marriage and polygamy, otherwise it will be left to guys like Alby (Matt Ross) to promote."

Bill's three wives struggle to come to terms with living out in the open for a ...

Matt's Weekend Picks: January 14-16

Ricky Gervais

Law & Order: UK (Friday, 9/8c, BBC America)
The big trend this winter is the Americanization of British series (Showtime's Shameless, Syfy's Being Human, MTV's Skins), so it's rather refreshing to check back in on this British translation of one of America's most successful exports, the Law & Order mothership.

Fringe Stars Preview What's Ahead in Season 3

Fringe

Fringe moving to Friday may seem earth shattering to some of its fans, but at FOX's TCA party on January 11, Lance Reddick and Jasika Nicole previewed future plot lines that will literally put the Fringe division on shaky ground.
