I’m about halfway through HBO’s Big Little Lies and it’s absolutely great. Not sure how much I like the gimmick of alluding to a murder at the beginning of the show, but not revealing who was actually killed, but otherwise, the mini-series is top notch. I’ve never been a huge Reese Witherspoon fan, but she’s absolutely great in this. And Nicole Kidman… oh my god, she’s just incredible.
I still have about three episodes to go, so I’m not sure how it will end, but I read that the show’s creators are already planning a second series, which could go either way considering that the original mini-series was based on a book, and that’s all there is. Any new content would have to be completely original and not an adaptation.
Regardless, if you like good quality TV, check this out.
