Audience Reviews for Big Little Lies: Season 2

  • Aug 21, 2021
    Although not as great and impactful as the first season, Big Little Lies still manages to hook in audiences each episode.
  • Mar 24, 2021
    What was interesting and exciting in season 1, now has the feel of a daytime soap opera TV series that even Meryl Streep cannot make it worth watching
  • Mar 17, 2021
    I loved season 2 as well as season 1. Absolutely fabulous TV. A must see! This show will stay with me lor a long time. And Meryl Streep played her role very well. I hated her.
  • Feb 27, 2021
    Not as show stopper as the first season, but it's as Good, gives a closure to all storylines.
  • Feb 20, 2021
    High quality show with outstanding performances all around. Meryl Streep deserves an award for brilliantly portraying one of the most sanctimonious characters I have ever seen.
  • Jan 31, 2021
    Meryl Streep just steals the show this season.
  • Dec 29, 2020
    A disappointing follow up to its perfect first season— still performed wonderfully especially its addition, Meryl Streep
  • Dec 27, 2020
    Season 1 was so incredibly good. Season 2 on the other hand is unwatchable. An ordinary soap opera.
  • Dec 18, 2020
    Another solid season of Big Little Lies with new twists, including a remarkable Meryl Streep performance. The writing and cast impress once again, driving this story forward in an emotionally enthralling and satisfying fashion.
  • Nov 12, 2020
    It's fine. Season 1 was the whole book, so season 2 was written out of thin air, and it shows. A lot of the "developments" don't grip you as much because the sequences don't make total sense. Basically, they wrote a whole season only for Nicole Kidman to battle with Meryl Streep in the finale, and the episodes reflect that.
