10 Reasons You Should Watch Big Little Lies
The HBO series Big Little Lies is easily becoming one of the most buzzed about new shows of the spring. The American dark comedy-drama is based on the Liane Moriarty novel by the same name and is being released as a miniseries of seven hour-long episodes. The show is only half way through and it’s already receiving rave reviews from critics and fans alike, and we can see why! For those who are still on the fence about it, here are 10 reasons to watch Big Little Lies!
10. Mean Girls Meets Gone Girl
Big Little Lies is unlike any other show on television right now, not only because it’s produced as a miniseries, but the storyline is so unique it’s being compared to a mashup of two totally different, but both widely popular films, Gone Girl and Mean Girls. There’s also a hint of Desperate Housewives when it comes to the competitive nature of all the Monetary moms. The story starts off depicting the mundane routine of everyday suburban life, but then turns it into a world that is much darker and more complex.
9. Reese Witherspoon is Amazing
Reese Witherspoon plays the character of Madeline Martha Mackenzie, the sassy, bossy and outspoken mom who cannot stand the other entitled “blonde bobs” who think they run the school. This is Reese Witherspoon like we’ve never seen her before. Her character has so much attitude and some of the best punchy one liners which she delivers perfectly. Picture the blonde Southern belle saying this to a fellow driver, “Get laid, b-tch!” It’s pretty awesome.
