Big Little Lies is perfect. I love that HBO decided to do this as a miniseries instead of a movie. I think this is what they need to do more often with stuff, especially book adaptations. Movies often require cutting too much material because of time constraints. Books that aren’t series don’t have enough material for a full TV show with multiple seasons but a miniseries is perfect. And even original content sometimes isn’t really “enough” for an entire show but could make a really great miniseries.
[side thought: Imagine if Harry Potter had been done as a TV show with a season for each book and 10ish episodes for each book. It would have been so amazing.]
That said I also can’t wait to see HBO’s adaptation of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
We throw around the word never likes its nothing but a small rose petal. The word never is a doubled edged sword. On one side it says ‘I will never leave you’ and on the other it says ‘I will never love you.’
