What to Watch: “Big Little Lies”

In a recent post, we talked about our new obsession with the Netflix series, Dead to Me. Today, we’ve decided to come clean about our excitement over the Season 2 finale of Big Little Lies this Sunday, July 21 (and the binge-watching of Seasons 1 and 2 that we’ll be doing between now and then).

Most us know that the series and all of Season 1 is based on Liane Moriarty’s bestselling book of the same name, which is about the innerworkings of the relationships of five women and mothers who live in the picturesque coastal town of Monterey, California. But, of course, everyone has their secrets and Season 1 reveals them all brilliantly and tops it off with a (spoiler alert!) tragic, although not entirely undeserved, death. Cut to Season 2, which builds on what the book and Season 1 started and delves further into the lives of the Monterey Five and the details swirling around the mysterious death. 

Have we convinced you to drop everything and start watching yet? If not, let’s take a moment to highlight the insanely talented cast which is stacked with critically acclaimed actors: Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz, and this season’s newest addition, Meryl Streep. It’s enough to make any entertainment buff swoon. And with that, please tune in to the Season 2 finale of Big Little Lies, this Sunday, July 21 at 9 p.m. on HBO. You’ll thank us later.
