9 p.m. tomorrow on TLC
Call me sentimental, but really — nothing says the peace of Jesus on Christmas morning like the always-welcome gift of a sub-machine gun.
And that’s just what randy Fundamentalist Mormon Kody Brown’s four wives buy their man for Christmas on tomorrow night’s third-season premiere of “Sister Wives.” Like Brigham Young running from the feds across the desert, Kody Brown last year fled Utah with his wives and 16 (soon to be 17) children across the barren desert to the oasis that is the holy land of Las Vegas.
On the premiere, wife number four, Robyn, gives birth to a baby boy, (at home, naturally); Kody takes the wives house-hunting (or make that compound-hunting); wife Christine tries to come to grips with her fading relationship with Kody since he hooked up with Robyn; wife Janelle is trying to lose weight; everyone except Kody is packing on the pounds; and Robyn offers to be a surrogate for wife Meri.
How you can be a surrogate when you share a husband, I don’t know, but it seems to be cheaper to just fake it. I mean, seriously, they already have 22 mouths to feed.
Welcome to the wonderful world of the Brown family, as they attempt to celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas, even though no one is Jewish.
This year of not living on top of one another in Las Vegas has made Kody realize the importance of everyone being on top of each other, so like a real- life “Big Love,” they find a compound of four houses in which to move. Kody loves this spot, because of the unobstructed view of the Vegas strip. Praise the Lord!
Oh — and Robyn now has a jewelry line. Did these people study at the “Big Love” school of TV or did “Big Love” study them? God (or maybe TLC) must be on their side though. I mean, people with two kids can’t even afford one house.
So strangely watchable it’s positively sinful.
