While Madeline and Celeste take new in town single mom Jane under their wing, none of them realises how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all. Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive. Written by
...not to get ahead of ourselves.. but this could be very, very good..
.. it's only one episode in, but it has all the makings of a really great series.. irregardless of all the big names involved on the acting side (and there are quite a few).. the writing and script is so strong that you loose sight of all their very familiar faces.. when scripts are weak then you're looking at the actors and all you get caught up in are the Hollywood personalities.. this one is different, and it's a credit to all involved.. it's sooo early and anything can happen but it feels as if it has the potential to be one the more outstanding TV series productions in quite some time.. keeping them all together for multiple seasons not an issue right now, but you've already got to be thinking (as the plot is clear).. who's first to go.. Have now watched all seven episodes... In June Nicole Kidman will be fifty years old... and one of the most gorgeous half-century old women on the planet.. (and one of the best actors). In this production she is just absolutely amazing, and I'm looking forward to watching it all again sometime. If you are only going to be doing one season.. this production is a benchmark. There are no flaws.. every detail down to the background music is exemplary..(and all the children are incredible). The leads were executive producers and they should most definitely reunite their production companies again very soon.. if they have not already. Don't even think about passing on this outstanding miniseries.. you'll be highly rewarded.
