Critic reviews for Burning Love

Doe-eyed, hoodie-enshrouded Jane turning into a stone cold potential killer is a great turn.

Much of Burning Love feels like a set-up for the series' finale, but the episode is still full of satisfying moments.

In other words, it may be centered around a murder mystery, but Big Little Lies is at its best when it's about life.

In many ways, Burning Love feels like the calm before the storm.

What started out as a sudsy, delicious series about affluent women Mean Girls-ing around the bluffs and into the public schools of Monterey, California, has slowly unspooled into a weighty, aching, drama.

I'd be more then fine sticking with these characters without a big murder investigation framing the whole conceit. With drama this good, we barely need it.
