It's alternately hilarious, shocking, poignant, titillating and cringe-inducing. But it's also important. Polyamory and the range of ways it can manifest itself in its practicing groups, and then still, what it means to each person inside these groups, is not an easy thing to telegraph. This show lays it out as carefully as possible in its profiling of two multi-person committed relationships. It works not just as the freak show that we've come to expect from reality TV, but also on a political level. The slippery slope anti-equality argument stating that if gays are allowed to marry, then soon we'll have to allow multiple partners to as well, is bullshit not just for side-stepping the issue — if you believe in the fundamental principle of sexual equality, that it doesn't matter what people do in their bedrooms as long as they aren't hurting others, there is no legitimate ethical argument against the kind of configurations you see presented on Polyamory.

To offer a bit of a summary before I move on to some of the finer points, though, overall I have to say this show is a good thing. And unless it portrayed poly folks in a simply awful light, I think that any amount of increased awareness is a meaningful thing. But all joking mostly aside, I present a list of my likes and dislikes about the show, in no particular order. And I mean an absolute lack. 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. The entire cast is white, able-bodied, cisgendered, thin and conventionally attractive.
