Figured Out What's Not Working in Big Love

Episode four of Big Love and I've figured out what isn't working. It doesn't feel like these people have been living together as a family longer than a month. The kids have no connections. There is no family history. Wives argue over issues that should have been recognized long ago. The wolves of the evil father-in-law prophet Roman feel too new. Everything appears very superficial and make-believe.

This is all in stark contrast to the Sopranos.
