Just as every good book does, Big Little Lies begins by demanding your attention. Laying out the foundations of a classic murder mystery, we are introduced to the women of Monterey. Never over acted, the venerated veteran acting status of each one of Big Little Lies stars comes through in their performances. Rarely can a show boast that no actor feels out of place or over reaching. Witherspoon, Kidman, Woodley, and indeed everyone in this miniseries feels perfectly cast.

Very interesting way of dealing with a murder. This looks like a very interesting show.
