What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Secrets & Lies is an apt title for this show; it lives up to that name in a big way with plenty of intrigue, drama, and yes - secrets and lies. Any drama show and even real life could tell you that small, close-knit suburban communities are not all they appear to be on the surface. People will always gossip about their friends and neighbours, and even the closest of pals will backstab each other without proof if it makes them look like a better person in the eyes of the public. This show covers all of that fantastically, with great acting to boot. I haven't watched the Aussie show it's based on, so I can't speak to whether it holds the same intrigue for those who watched the original, but without having seen it, I can say that this is damn good on its own.
