Of course, there’s always a disparity between what’s accurate and what makes for good TV.No one in the entire series played Dominion or Settlers of Catan even once, so I can’t say it’s a completely accurate portrayal of the life of the typical poly family. I know that poly communities do struggle with this in reality, but the lack of people of color is not nearly as absolute in real life poly world as it is on the show.And I do have a big criticism of one cast member accusing his wife of not being poly for not wanting to share her girlfriend with him.
I've heard there are a couple of good podcasts but I haven't checked them out. IMO: If you are watching it purely for entertainment, then go for it.
If you are watching it as a somewhat accurate representation of what poly relationships are like, then I wouldn't recommend it.
And of course I’m not at all surprised that Showtime would want a lot of fun sexy naked time on the show.
I just know that people in general tend to hyper-focus on the sex lives of poly people rather than considering our relationships, and the show didn’t do much to discourage that kind of thinking.
I think it's good IF you go into it understanding that a lot of it HAS to be dramatized to make it more "interesting" to mainstream people watching.
