Big Little Lies

Limited series on HBO. I didn’t know this was based on a book. Wikipedia had a synopsis on the storyline. I won’t give any spoilers away.

The series begins with a news conference regarding a murder. The teachers and staff at an elementary school are talking about the parents. The main characters (Madeline “Reese Witherspoon”, Celeste “Nicole Kidman”, Jane “Shaylene Woodley” and supporting characters, Bonnie “Zoe Gravitz” and “Renata “Laura Dern” just to name a few) have children that go there.

It is not revealed who was killed but it was revealed how the person was killed. There are flashbacks that tie in with the teachers talking about events and accusations about the parents involved.

I’ve seen 4 episodes and there were only 7. Television or movie versions are not like the book. I’ve read all the books for “Game of Thrones” and the HBO series went a different direction than the books.

I liked this series. According to IMDB, it says Season 1 and the last episode’s plot has not been revealed. Will there be a Season 2?
