DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Wednesday -

IVE al­ways thought if I was go­ing to kill some­one I’d wait un­til they were in bed and just put a pil­low over their face. Ide­ally they’d be in a coma, or se­ri­ously ad­dled, the way Ro­man Grant was when Joey Hen­rick­son smoth­ered him at the end of the last se­ries of Big Love.

Is he dead though? He looked it, but Ro­man’s looked half-dead for the past three sea­sons. And as one of his wives points out tonight, he plans on liv­ing till he’s 126. It’ll be a bit of a shame if Harry Dean Stan­ton’s no longer on this show, child-mo­lest­ing mur­derer that he is. Or not him ob­vi­ously, his char­ac­ter.

He’s fan­tas­tic. Creepy and hideous, sure, but even just hav­ing him there, walk­ing around, adds value. I love his face, his look, and I love his sing­ing voice too.

Ro­man’s been missing for six weeks when this episode starts tonight. For such a close — in­ces­tu­ous — fam­ily, no­body seems overly concerned.

They’re all crim­i­nals of one sort or an­other, so there’s that. Plus Bill Hen­rick­son and his three wives — one of whom is Ro­man’s daugh­ter, re­mem­ber — are caught up with the open­ing of his casino, only three days away.
