Big Little Lies

United States, created by David E. Kelley
Broadcasted by HBO

Based on Liane Moriarity’s novel by the same name, Big Little Lies is easily the best written, most intelligent, darkly funny and heartbreaking soap I’ve seen in a long time. And I mean that in the best way possible. Story-wise Big Little Lies doesn’t offer anything we haven’t exactly seen already. A young single mom moves to an affluent California community. Right on the first day at school, her son is being accused of molesting a classmate, which bitterly divides the community.But Big Little Lies works brilliantly as a cynical exploration of the privileged.
