Will I be live-tweeting #BigLittleLies, which starts right now on HBO?

You bet your sweet ass I will.
Meryl Streep just appeared in the title credits, and a shiver went up my spine.

Ten minutes into this season, and Meryl Streep is already flat-out ridiculous in her ability to transform into a character. Wow.

The principal alluding to the murder seems just a wee bit unrealistic, and yet, Reese Witherspoon makes that scene work perfectly.

Well... maybe not "perfectly", but I still love Reese Witherspoon.

I gasped at the conversation between Streep and Witherspoon. Good lord, her character is scary.

If someone like Meryl Streep's character sideswiped me like that in a conversation, I'm pretty sure I would just go home and cry myself to sleep.

Not sure how I feel about the tongue-in-cheek comparison of dangerous fish to pretty women.

"Do you know what kids do at college? They drink. They fuck. They mull over a sex change."

Thanks, writing staff. Classy. Much appreciated.

It's so very easy not to mock trans people, and you'd think a show with writers as introspective as "Big Little Lies" would know not to do it. Disappointing.

Followed by a weird "are you on the spectrum" joke. Really wanting to enjoy the show, but shitty humor like this that punches down on vulnerable folks is pretty distracting.

Noticing a lot of peppering-in of flashbacks similar to "Sharp Objects". Not as frenetic, but it's definitely a feature.

Meryl Streep's character is absolutely perfect at slipping-in these razor sharp barbs into her conversations.

Unpopular opinion, probably: the scream was over-the-top. Streep's character is so much stronger in her subtlety. Not sure it fit very well.

"Sooo... who are we planning to kill?"

Okay, that was a great scene. Well played.

Meryl Streep already has nine Golden Globes and three Emmys. Pretty sure she's about to get one more of each if this first episode is any indication.
