I didn't watch My Five Wives. I live in Utah, so polygamists just aren't all that interesting to me (which is not to say that I don't care about all of the craziness that can happen and want to help/support those who are trying to leave difficult and abusive situations; I just don't care to see a reality show about it).
It's interesting, though, to see the comments people have made. In the newspaper article I think I remember the family saying that they wanted to show people how normal the are. Guess that didn't happen.
