Late to the game, but I finally got around to watching Big Little Lies
off a friend’s recommendation, and it was quite good. I think I put it off for so long because the original marketing left me confused about what the show actually was. So let me try to help: Big Little Lies is a 7 episode miniseries based off a best selling novel. It follows the lives of helicopter parents in an affluent area of California, it’s funny, sad, and brutal, and it has a satisfying and surprising payoff at the end.
