Critic reviews for Burning Love

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

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

August 30, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

The pressure of keeping secrets was getting to everyone on Big Little Lies Season 1 Episode 6, and admitting imperfections seemed to be the theme of the hour.

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.

This week, as BLL deftly maneuvers all of its pieces in place for next week's finale, the facades finally begin to crack, as Madeline, Celeste, and Renata all decide to let go of the destructive elements they've been holding onto for far too long.
