HBO really knows how to hike up anticipation for its shows. Shortly after announcing that the highly anticipated (and very slow-cooking) fourth season of polygamy drama Big Love is set to kick off early next year, the cabler recently gave out the release date for the similarly highly anticipated release of the Big Love season 3 DVD.
According to HBO, the 10-episode Big Love - The Complete 3rd Season is due to hit stores December 22, giving fans of the show barely enough time to get themselves up to speed before the fourth season begins. Clever marketing. Running for approximately 600 minutes, the DVD set will of course cover the season that wrapped up March of this year. There is still no word on the available features on the set.
It was reported previously that Amazon.com had started taking pre-orders for the DVD as early as four months ago, even without the go signal of HBO and distributor Warner Home Video as well as a working title. At least now, if you want to brush up on your Big Love universe before confronting a potentially nerve-racking but exciting season, then get the DVD and get yourself up to speed.
