The entire second season works better than it has any right to...
June 10, 2019
I'm still not sure I can say that the return of Big Little Lies is altogether necessary. But I can say that it promises to be thoroughly enjoyable and smart.
June 10, 2019
Although Big Little Lies doesn't seem entirely sure of where it's headed, it can still work itself up into a delectably roiling state of privilege and anger.
June 10, 2019
[Meryl] Streep gives Mary Louise a vicious and eerily hilarious maternal edge. She is clearly having a ball. I can't wait to see how her story line expands.
June 10, 2019
Murder may be murder, but sisterhood dovetails with executive producer [Reese] Witherspoon's girl power brand.

June 10, 2019
Happily enough these first few episodes are just as engrossing as those that came before. Scenes rapidly fluctuate from concerning to hilarious, but keeping up with the pace is no problem: This emotional roller coaster is far too fun.

Big Little Lies might have more petrol left in the tank
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 13, 2019
Beyond the staggering strength of the actresses on screen and talent behind the camera, there's a story of friendship, found comraderies in the spirits of women and general intrigue and drama that keeps us looking forward to what is going to happen next.
June 11, 2019
[Meryl] Streep's scenes with [Reese] Witherspoon and [Nicole] Kidman are high camp played in deliciously low key style.

June 11, 2019
A second season was a creative risk. But so far that decision to continue the story is one well worth following.
June 11, 2019
Streep then, doesn't just bring forth a curious tension to the show's proceedings, but also represents an antithetical worldview that is wired to willingly look the other way and often, blame women.
June 10, 2019
The second season of 'Big Little Lies' shows a world in which everything has changed but you must pretend that it hasn't. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 10, 2019
Through it all, the signature Big Little Lies approach is in full effect: sharply observed, endlessly patient, emotionally true.
June 10, 2019
Big Little Lies has taken the fallout of trauma and made it the most engrossing thing on television right now and you should definitely be here for it.

June 10, 2019
That first season was perfect television and this second season, while promising, already lacks the kind of stakes that existed in the first. But we shall see.
June 10, 2019
The series justifies its existence with a compelling story and the addition of Meryl Streep to an already absurdly talented cast.
June 10, 2019
Rather than running out of gas in its second season, Big Little Lies is more deliciously watchable than ever.
June 10, 2019
It's crazy funny, scary and disquieting. And it's about as must-watch as anything on TV.
June 10, 2019
Whatever your expectations are, double them, because [Meryl] Streep is stunning as Perry's mother Mary-Louise.
June 10, 2019
Forget closure. Forget questions. The premiere of Big Little Lies Season 2 delivers on what's really important about the show: spending time with our five wonderful wives.
June 7, 2019
Those who love this series are likely to love these new hours just as well. As for we few who weren't entirely swept up, one can't quite say there isn't enough of a story to merit a new season of this drama.
June 7, 2019
It's harder now to ignore, watching the early episodes of Season Two, that Big Little Lies is offering up some of the best psychological storytelling on television.
June 7, 2019
It looks great, sounds great, and is populated with some of the best actors on a very crowded planet.
June 7, 2019
It's a visual idiom that sure sizzles, making the natural setting and the homes both captivating and unnerving. What is also here in the continuation is a fabulous sense of humour. There are scenes of exquisite dry hilarity.
