TLC, which used to be about learning and is now a gentle freakshow, has released a preview reel for their upcoming real-life Big Love series, Sister Wives, about a Utah family with one husband and three wives. Yay weirdos!

Look, there are obvious and unsettling implications of a patriarchal, imbalanced-gender-dynamic thing going on here, but this seems far less socially horrifying than 19 Kids and Counting, right? At least these folks — who do have a fair amount of children — aren't the enormous walking environmental catastrophe that the Duggars are. Either way, the show looks strange and curious and could very well be fascinating, in a vaguely depressing way. God only knows what we'd do without TLC.
