We Finally Watched "Big Little Lies"

“Big Little Lies” premiered on HBO on February 19, which was around the start of a crazy last semester of college, so we didn’t have time to watch it then, but we recently sat down to finally watch it and it is GOOD.

The show, based on a book of the same name by Liane Moriarty, follows Madeline, Celeste and Jane played by Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley and their lives in the upscale town of Monterey.

In the first episode you find out someone dies, but you have no idea who it could be.

Crazy, right?

Carine and I haven’t read the book, so we spent the whole series going back and forth about who it could possibly be and, no we didn’t choose the right person.

The show also highlighted that no one is perfect. Everyone in the town had what looked like perfect lives, but everyone was going through something painful.

With seven episodes at about an hour, Carine and I got through this pretty quickly.

If you want to watch something, check this show out. I promise it won’t disappoint!

Let me know if you guessed right and what you think about it.
