Wonderful. Absolutely wonderful ride. Every episode well written and heartful and passionate. I was shocked but not surprised when I heard the gunfire, and shed a tear at the ned. You should be so proud of the work you all did. I hope someone from teh cast or crew ACTUALLY sees my comments. Congrats to everyone involved with a gold standard in television.

I will so miss tha show. It has broke my heart to let this go. I was drawn into this family. I was a big fan of this show. It made me look at life and love and relationships in a whole new way. I can say with a full heart this show has changed my life. Thank you all so much. Sincerely, Susan

I also can't believe HBO is cancelling a show with so many viewers! I DO NOT like what they did with Margie's character this last season. Leave her children...really? Obviously written by men! Ginnifer--you are a gorgeous girl--hope to see much more of you (but with longer hair and no bangs) :)
Cheers Big Love!

NEVER have I loved a show and cast more than Big Love! I truly felt sad this morning knowing that the series was finished!!!

I agree what happened to the other story lines. What happened to the other families????????

I'm so sad that Big Love has ended. Although the writers felt that the show could be wrapped up in ten episodes, I really felt that things were rushed and the show could have went for a few more seasons.
I didn't know how things were going to end, but was hoping that it would be left open for a comeback (ie. Bill goes to prison). Guess that's not going to happen.

Thanks for the Love, Henricksons. You will be missed.

I loved this show and am sad to see it end! All the characters were beautifully formed and I've always been a fan of Bill Paxton! I'm sorry to see him killed off, but at least his character was able to see the changes take hold in Juniper Creek. I thought the writers were brilliant. If they wanted the world to see polygamy as not a cult, but just a group of people. Just families. Then they achieved that. I'll miss the show...

What an amazing series and I can't believe it's come to an end. A beautiful ending - I especially thought the Frank and Lois ending was beautifully done. Bravo to all who took part in the show and I thank you for giving us a great show to watch! I will miss you dearly, Big Love.

I've watched this show since the very beginning, and immediately fell in love with all the characters. Even though there wasn't a black face in the entire town, I was a fan. I am absolutely angry that the show is gone. With all the reality mess that no one gives a hoot about, this was a wonderful break from all that crap. So frustrated with HBO....you come up with the best shows, Deadwood, Sopranos...was Six feet Under yours? Anyway....you hook us then leave us hanging....I hate that! Another favorite has fallen. So sad>

I'm going to miss the show and the chemistry between all of you. The superb writing, the beautiful visual story telling and even the great music... Big Love has to be my favorite show (ever). And you all ended it beautifully. You should be very very proud everyone :) It was a breathtaking journey... I'm so glad I could be a part of it!

I considered myself a fan of Big Love, even though I never admitted it to ANYONE I knew! Knowing this was the last season, I really can't believe how much the writers tried to cram into these 10 episodes. The whole season felt so rushed, I thought they needed at LEAST 5 more episodes to tie things together....it ended so abruptly! Even though a lot of comments are saying this was a good ending to the show, I disagree. It would have been a good ending to the show if there were more ends tied up, and more leading up to it. I mean, even "Lost", one of the best (and most confusing) network TV shoes EVER had a better finale and more closure than the finale of Big Love offered it's fans. After watching every episode for the past 5 years, I feel like the writers really let us down. :( But, I guess at least you know what happens to the main characters, vs the finale of the Sopranos where everything just goes black!

I agree with Marie. The writers/producers really blew this one. The editing was so poor on the finale, you didn't know what day it was, and who was coming or going. It was as if they were told at the last minute that the world was coming to an end and they had to tie up all the loose ends in minimal time. The finale should have been at least 2 hours...very disappointing! There was definitely more story to be told, and the ending left the viewer feeling cheated. The only 'good' thing I garnered from the finale was that I didn't see Bill's death by his neighbor coming. What happened to Adeleen's baby? Bill's brother and Wanda? I could go on....but my questions would take up more time than the finale did.

I wil miss this show. it was a great escape from my world. remind me we all look at life differently.

Why do they always cancel the good ones? I guess it had run its course but I hate to see it go.

I remember a critic making a caustic comment about "Little House on the Prairie", when he said "every time the ratings sag, they just blind another child." In this case there was no profit in killing the main character at the end. Death always has its dramatic effect, since it's something we all face, and film makers simply use it as a tool. But it still pisses us off when it's done gratuitously. Still, given the choice between prison and death, I guess there's not much choice. I feel as if something was left unresolved here, not sure what, but then we can't follow them into old age. Things have to end. It was such a pleasure to watch all the fine acting in this series. Bill Paxton has always been an appealing actor, and came into his own in this series. Jeanne couldn't have done it better. And Ms Savigny surprised everyone by inhabiting her character so well. And Margene, whom we watched grow up, and wanted to pounce, was in some ways the most interesting and evolving character. Rhonda was a bitch, and the rest we really didn't care about a great deal. A big hole in my Sunday nights. Best of luck to the cast, as they move ahead, and thank you. We did love the show.

I am going to miss this show. I looked forward to watching it every Sunday.
Fortunately, I don't have to say goodbye. I began watching Big Love during the third season. I still have seasons 1 & 2 to catch up on.
I too will now shut down my HBO subscription.

Can someone delete Marie's inappropriately rude comments. After such a wonderful show- we shouldn't have to read that disgusting dribble.

Yay!!! This was an amazing show and my husband and I completely enjoyed watching it all these years. We spent last week trying to guess what would happen in the finale. Great writing and superb acting.

But I have to add: Bill was the guy I loved to hate. Did he hold his family together for love and faith, or controll them as he tried contolling everything else in his life? I'm not sure. But I didn't want to see him die, and I'm sorry that his character won't get to fulfil his "prophet" role (that he seemed to be headed toward). The writers did a great job making it real. Thanks for such a great show!

Being on a plural marriage myself, I identified strongly with the show from episode 1 of season 1. Last night I started crying with the mini-cooper scene, and I am still crying today. The final hug of the wives, Bill's blessing, ugh... I will miss you Big Time, Big Love! Take care Margie, I love you.

I have really enjoyed watching your show on HBO.
I will miss wating till Sunday Night to watch Big Love on HBO.
Thanks for the Shows you all did. You will be missed.I still can't believe BHO cancelled the show with SO many viewers. Would be great if they would had a follow up episode or two of how you guys are doing better then the little clip of the 11 months later. I cried so much this last episode , this was the best HBO series hands down.

I loved Big Love!! I will miss you all, what a wonderful look at an alternative lifestyle, I feel like there was so much more for this family to tell us, I wish the writers and HBO would have given us more time with them.

Sunday's will never be the same ): I think the endng was perfect. It shows Bill's love bonding these three "wives" as sister's, a bond that will last all their lives. Kudos........

ps Don't forget about your kids, Margene! Nikki's too strict!!
