Big Little Lies S01E01 “Somebody’s Dead”
A murder mystery with MILFs and Cougars. It takes place in Monterey California, a small coastal city south of Silicon Valley where rich people live. Unfortunately, I have not personally had the opportunity to visit the northern California coast.
Plus Shailene Woodley who plays a poor single mom and who is young and pretty even though her character is made to look plain with her low maintenance clothing and hairstyle and lack of obvious makeup. And her character is even named Jane. Plain Jane. Not very subtle.
Not only is it a whodunit, it’s also a mystery who is actually murdered!
Plus there’s lots of soap opera type drama. This show is unusually lowbrow for an HBO series. I think I’m going to enjoy it more than The Young Pope. Thankfully, no gay sex, at least not yet.
The character played by Laura Dern is a real bitch. She has to be either the killer, the victim, or at least a suspect.
Also starring Reese Witherspoon, who seems to be the main character, and Nicole Kidman who still looks MILFy even though she has aged into a Cougar.
