Big Love (2012)
For the Columbia Law Review, Dr. Adrienne D. Davis assessed legal debates surrounding polygamy after the premiere of Big Love and how it was being likened to same-sex marriage. She wrote, "The highly acclaimed hit series self-consciously invites viewers to consider analogies between same-sex and polygamous families. In the show's much-anticipated second season, the invitation became more pointed and persistent, with intermittent references to 'coming out,' 'closeted families,' and 'the state' as repressively surveilling nonconforming 'big love.'" However, she claimed that Hollywood and television critics' desire to interpret the polygamy in Big Love and beyond as representative of American "quirky families" was a miscue. Ultimately, she argues that the dichotomy presented by Big Love works when viewed in terms of "intimacy liberty, privacy, autonomy, and agency, or even an incipient constitutional respect for 'sexual minorities.'"; the very essence, as Davis notes and commends, of the series' themes.

First of all, can everybody please give Richard a big round of applause for that great introduction. A couple other people I want to acknowledge. First of all, your outstanding Congresswoman, Chellie Pingree, is here. One of the great statesmen of our time, Senator George Mitchell, in the house. From nearby Portland, Mayor Michael Brennan is here. And the Maine Finance Committee and everybody who helped put this together--what a wonderful event. And whoever arranged for the great weather, good job. The last time I was in Maine it was snowing--[laughter]--not surprisingly, and I love snow, but this is good too. [Laughter]
From it we can witness the truth of living systems interconnected with all other living systems. And we can experience the truth of a world of abundance, creativity, love, vitality, and mutual support, on all levels. In other words, we experience a shift in consciousness.

I believe that teaching youth the skills and discipline to contribute is extremely important. Youth not only learn real-life skills but develop a sense of healthy self-esteem through relationships. As a psychologist, I feel that this connectedness is necessary for proper development. I would love to see more communities incorporate such relevant, experiential, and relational education for all youth.
On playing after a tragedy..."It was hard. I lost a woman who I truly love, but I have my family around me and my football family. At the end of the day, families are forever and I will see them again someday."
About the support..."My family and my girlfriend's family has received so much love and support from the Notre Dame family. Michigan State fans showed some love. It goes to show that football is just a game that we play and have fun doing it, but at the end of the day what matters are the people around you and family."
