For the longest time, watching TV has mostly been about work. Watching a show ahead of an interview with an actor, or to write an analysis about the show and its themes. It’s now rarely about enjoyment.
But there are times when you watch a TV show, and you are just blown away. "Big Little Lies" is that show.
When HBO announced a second season, I was a bit upset. “Why do we always want more? Why can’t we be happy with the little we have?” I recall asking a friend.
The first season of the Emmy-winning show was perfect.
The cast was great, the writing, direction and cinematography was sublime, the acting was a master class. So, I was afraid that the second season would undo all of that excellence.
