Even though most critics agree with her, Chloe Sevigny caught some heat last week for saying she thought the last season of Big Love was “awful”.
When asked about the fourth season of the HBO show, in which she plays Nicki, one of the three Henrickson sister-wives, Chloe didn’t hold back. She told the A.V. Club, “It was awful this season, as far as I’m concerned. I’m not allowed to say that! [Gasps.] It was very telenovela. I feel like it kind of got away from itself. The whole political campaign seemed to me very farfetched. I mean, I love the show, I love my character, I love the writing, but I felt like they were really pushing it this last season. And with nine episodes, I think they were just squishing too much in. HBO only gave us nine Sundays, because they have so much other original programming—especially with The Pacific—and they only have a certain amount of Sundays per year, so we only got nine Sundays. I think that they had more story than episodes. I think that’s what happened.”
