Familial ties slowly unbind in this exceptionally well-written episode.
This tale of rich American housewives and the boulders beneath the apparently tranquil surfaces of their comfortable lives is just superbly written.
Big Little Lies is at once a soap opera and a sitcom and a gimlet-gazed commentary on capitalism and its consequences. But the show is also, humming at its lower registers, a work of horror.
Episode 2, Tell-Tale Hearts, makes it very clear their guilty consciences or other distressing emotional issues will manifest in problems both little and big.
Now that the plot is shining light after light on the secrets and lies that held everyone's lives together, the final scene of Season 1 feels like a naive fantasy compared to the consequences and fallout.
Big Little Lies is bringing us so many different portrayals of motherhood, both good and bad, and I can't wait for more.
Apparently Big Little Lies' Season 2 premiere episode was simply an amuse bouche of the life and times of the Monterey Five, because Episode 2 is giving us the whole meal.
While the overarching season lie gets more difficult to hold onto the longer Mary Louise is within the orbit of any of the Monterey Five, it's the less significant fibs that are threatening to tear everyone apart.
Laura Dern is simply amazing to behold; the human embodiment of barely suppressed rage.
Secrets, it turns out, are a hard thing to keep, particularly when they're in the hands of 9-year-olds who know, ambitiously, 40 total people. But, like a dead man's heart thumping beneath the floorboards-ah, c'mon, you get it.
