What I'm watching: Big Little Lies

What I'm watching: Big Little Lies

Yes, I've been watching a lot of television lately.  I'm comfortable and happy in our new home and really all right with this low-key suburban lifestyle.

As a writer, it is interesting for me to watch an entire series back to back to notice references, smart thinking and keeps me wondering what happens next.  Remember when we had to wait a week to see what happened to find out if Ross picked Emily or Rachel?

I read an interview with Reese Witherspoon about her new HBO show Big Little Lies, based on the book by Liane Moriarty, and was intrigued by the talented cast of women including Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz.

The murder story line delves deep into the complexities of all the beautiful mothers living seemingly perfect lives in beautiful homes on the beach.  While the kids are at school together the ladies are involved in affairs, abuse, past traumas and mischief, yet when the bell rings at the end of the day their innocent little children bounce out of school clueless to any of it.

I'm all caught up and now am back to having to wait an entire week to see what happens next.

What are you watching these days?  Have you seen Big Little Lies? 

A few other shows I've been binging as of late: How I Met Your Mother, Nurse Jackie and LOVE
