What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I'm in awe of the stellar performance of all the cast and the intriguing storyline of this show. Big Little Lies is just... powerful. It really touched me in so many ways. It was truly mesmerizing to watch the different charaters' development throughout the course of the story and the scenic setting rounded everything off perfectly. I'm kind of disappointed that this was just a miniseries but considering the epic ending it wouldn't have worked any other way.
