Smaller moments show a softer side of the women Monterey without losing any narrative steam.
I think the story of Big Little Lies adds up to something larger than its individual parts.
It doesn't take much for temperatures to rise in sunny Monterey.
Surprisingly, [the murder plot] absence doesn't feel that important. The rest of the episode is more than entertaining enough without it.
I've never been a fan of Shailene Woodley but she's pretty great as Jane.
Some of the best parts of the episode happened in smaller, quieter moments.
The characters, though, remaining engagingly complex and worthy of redemption.
Episode two gave more context to the relationships introduced in the Big Little Lies premiere, richly expanding the world and setting the stage for bigger drama to come.
Ed's transformation from mild-mannered spouse into a deliberate, stand-up guy not willing to be run over by his dominant wife was well worth the wait and brilliantly played by Adam Scott in all his hirsute glory.
Big Little Lies has packed its cast with heavy-hitters who elevate what could be a rote series to a higher level.
It definitely isn't Shakespeare, but damn if it isn't good.
