  Big Little Lies: The Complete Second Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 1/1/20

I loved the first season of this show, and I have really enjoyed the second season as well. Each season has a new mystery, it seems. The characters are great because you seldom see such complex and flawed female characters like this anywhere on TV or movies.

I found the first episode to be pretty slow, at first, but then it got better, and the story quickly drew me in. Adding Meryl Streep to the cast was a stroke of genius. Her character is fun to both hate and pity. All of the acting on the show is amazing, just like the first season. I loved how they developed some of the characters more thoroughly, like Bonnie.

The cliffhanger at the end of the season had me yelling, "No!" because I couldn't believe they would end so suddenly. Now I can't wait until season 3. We have DISH Network, which lost HBO, so I'm very happy to have the series on DVD. I've been recommending it to everyone I know.

The only feature on the DVD has the main stars (the actresses) sitting around and chatting about the show. It's kind of interesting - certainly unusual for a DVD extra.
