Audience Reviews for Big Little Lies: Season 1

  • Dec 28, 2022
    Even some tragic events happened in the show, it is still funny, well written. Good production. Nice acting. Loved Nicole Kidman here.
  • Oct 22, 2022
    A very empathic and strong cast with a mysterious yet empowering story.
  • Sep 10, 2022
    Predictable plot. No characters to root for.
  • Aug 27, 2022
    Very well done. An interesting mystery story. A wonderful, high-powered set of acting talent.
  • Aug 27, 2022
    Absolutely an amazing show. Everything about it is perfect! The cast, the place its truly a masterpiece.
  • Jun 19, 2022
    Slow and somewhat predictable but showcases some good character development. Laura Dern is a remarkably bad actor though, super disappointing as I loved her in Jurassic park. Overall the show is watchable but overrated
  • Mar 13, 2022
    I only have a little big problem with this series: I couldn't care less.
  • Dec 30, 2021
    Fantastic performances all round. Witherspoon is particularly suited to this role. Not sure Zoe Kravitz works. She feels too young, yet also very ‘old' and jaded. Kidman is marvelous, although the role is somewhat predictable for her. Still, great stuff.
  • Dec 01, 2021
    This show is fantastic. It has an intriguing mystery and interesting, complex characters (played by a A-list cast!) Love all these actresses.
  • Nov 06, 2021
    Superb and gripping. I loved the local skirmishes and the arching story through the whole season. Really great show. Perfectly delivered
