Polyamory married and dating episode 1
Kamala and Tahl have a “deep connection” (if you know what I mean, makes Jen uncomfortable, but for whatever reason – she keeps going along. Tracy lives in a tiny, blue house with her dude, her dogs and her cat.
Obviously, part of the show’s appeal is that these polyamorous people are having sex right on the screen in front of you, but it would be nice if the direction focused a little less on the “kinky” aspects of their lives and more on their interpersonal relationships.They have a night off from childcare and it’s their first night together in the house.And it’s kind of romantic, but also, interestingly, a little fraught.They all have relatively independent lives away from each other.The Quartet, on the other hand, is investing a lot more in this lifestyle.She fears mutant hillbillies, Scientology and people who don't watch tv.

Tahl expresses some irritation with Jen in his interview — he’s eager to go farther with his polyamorous lifestyle, but Jen’s rules hold him back.
Jen is more hesitant about this lifestyle, it seems, and requires more attention from Kamala and Tahl in particular to validate her.
It certainly isn’t the free-for-all, booty fest I assumed it to be. They all have sex with other approved partners, but Lindsey was throwing off, “new relationship energy,” which is only acceptable when all the members of The Triad agree to bring a new person into the family.
In the first episode when Lindsey returns from a stint out-of-town visibly besotted with a new guy name Kristoff, Vanessa and Anthony, but mostly Vanessa react with all the jealousy one would expect from a monogamous partner. Makes sense I guess, but Lindsey really likes that Kristoff and I feel badly for her, which is just… Family #2 – Kamala, Michael, Jennifer & Tahl Kamala is married to Michael and in the first episode they ask their lovers, Jennifer and Tahl to move into a weird harem room in the back of their house.
