BIG LOVE's series finale was powerful yet infuriating
"The last episode of the drama's fifth season," says Matt Zoller Seitz, "was overstuffed, rushed and brazenly melodramatic, tying off subplots lickety-split, as if working its way down a checklist. And its last 15 minutes built toward a wannabe "one for the ages" climax — a shocking twist that reordered the hour, the season and the show, forcing viewers to view everything that came before in a fresh context. Was the power of that ending justified? Or was it a shortcut to catharsis, wringing emotions through sudden trauma that should have been built to more meticulously and thoughtfully?"
