It just keeps on getting better
16 September 2017 | by parthpant19See all my reviews

I just cannot sleep until I finish this work of art and dexterity."Big Little Lies" is so fine a show that you don't want it to end, its that great and this episode justifies that.

We learn more about the ladies's past and their ability to hide it shrewdly.Nicole Kidman literally gets into her character Celeste and so does a surprising Alexander Skarsgård as her husband.There is more light thrown into romances of the past while a dark, dirty future is being ominously hinted at.

The show has literally brought forward some very sensitive issues and that too with a realistic brilliance-why ladies endure domestic violence, suppress their own dreams for their families and would do anything for the safety of their children. Emotional, disturbing, touching and tensed- this is a series you don't want to miss.
