I saw this last week.  I'm glad Lydia called off the courtship. I was not surprised though, she was not into it. The hubby was so desperate for a cooking /domestic wife.

I thought it was just a one-off episode, didn't know it was a series. I'll try remember to tune in ( I have a terrible memory). Last week, I had planned to watch this when I saw it listed in the tv guide, but completely forgot about it. I was half-watching Netflix instead when I noticed it was trending on Twitter, so I managed to catch it on +1.

She didn't seem that into him, truth be told. 

I don't know how many episodes it will be, but it does follow them for a while!

I was surprised to hear it was her third or fourth broken courtship. I hope she doesn't make another appearance later in the series saying she changed her mind and now ready to marry.

The second wife was not a bit happy about having a new addition, she couldn't conceal her delight when Lydia was hesitating and taking time to think on it. I thought it was weird when the husband gathered the children to ask them if they agreed to add Lydia to the family. That one lil boy saying 'No' was repeatedly asked until he agreed.

Did I mishear or misunderstand I am certain Lydia said her mom had been one of 34 wives. I am hoping I misheard but also would not be surprised if she had said so.

I just watched it and think she said her grandfather had 4 wives and her mom was the oldest of the 36 kids...but I could also be wrong. Is it just me or does Lydia look like she could pass as the younger sister of the first wife?

36 kids does make more sense than 36 wives, although either sounds like a terrible scenario. There truly is only so much time and love to go around and nothing about either scenario sounds like it wouldn't have been pleasant for anyone.

34 wives would be Warren Jeffs level (though I believe he had more toward the end). I'll have to learn more about the Rockland Ranch community. It'll be interesting to learn about another group. Thanks for the heads up!

Tonight's episode shocked me. To think Abel may take on his dead brother's two widows as wives! I'm floored. And absolutely hooked.

And if they have children with Abel they will be the dead brothers children in gods eyes. That part throw me for a loop. Also the three years of self sufficiency thing, I'd heard about mormons keeping a three month stock of food but three years?

I watched the first episode yesterday and I felt really with that one pregnant wife and when the other two wives said that they don't really like her and only spend time with her because she's married to their husband :/

I have just spotted this on channel 4 now, so have gone back to watch the first episode.

" I know people who have 7, 8 wives and are still functional" 

 

I wonder how the children feel about having to share their father with more mother/wives and more children?

Still functional. What a ringing commendation.

I watched the second episode last night. It was even more shocking, yet intriguing that the previous week.

That Abel and his many un-merry wives - what a miserable mopey foursome they make. These gals sure don't keep 'sweet'! 

Wife no.3 was bad enough, but then wife no.2 joined in the misery and hate fest. The bitchy, jealous grumpiness was epic in this family. Only no.1 seemed to be ok with it all and happy enough (or at least getting on with it).

It was completely baffling how Abel could consider adding his brother's 2 widows and all their kids to his already chaotic cluster-f* family.

It was funny when he was buying 3 Valentine cards though, and the check out lady was trying to work out if he had a lot of mistresses in different towns.

I really felt for Marina, who was already struggling the most with just being one of four. And Beth wasn't thrilled.

I like that the woman in the headstone place just rolled with it and helped them choose a gravestone.

I was really hoping to get more details on this show and some interviews I had heard recently from the politicsrusprinciple tumblr but it seems to have been shut down. :(

Anyone else having trouble watching it on the channel 4 website? I can't watch the youtube because it's a super small corner and the sound is weird.

Channel 4 doesn't let you watch if you have any kind of adblocker in place, which is super annoying

Yeah, I'm really sad about it. It was such a good resource. I noticed it down on April 1st and was hoping it was a prank of some kind, but no such luck.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
