Big Little Lies

Recommended Posts

Has anyone watched this HBO series?    My wife and I just finished season one (which originally was to be the only season), and are getting ready to move into season two.    It has a great cast, especially the female stars — Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and others.     The show has a unique plot device — in the opening of the show, somebody has been murdered, but you don’t know who it is.     So, not only is it a whodunnit, it’s a whowasitdoneto!   Anyway, it’s quite good, though it’s one of those shows where you basically dislike almost every character.

Just finished season two, which in addition to the excellent original cast, also features Meryl Streep in a prominent role.   As usual, she’s fantastic.    This was a really good series, though arguably a chick show since most of the main characters are women.   But the men are important too.   Highly recommended.    And great sound track.

I watched season 1 and liked it a lot.  Watched two episodes of season 2 and really don’t care for it.  Seems to have no plot line.

My advice is stick with it.    I’d say it’s not quite as good as season one, but it’s very good IMO.   It’s only 5 more episodes so not a big time commitment.

    • I don’t disagree with anything you said, and I’m grateful you said it. Everyone needs a designated driver. But lemme play devil’s advocate for a moment. This is 60 games. ~12 starts instead of 30. 60 starters instead of 162, and several guys who can start a time or two and not ruin our lives. One trait of greatness is consistency. Over 60, that is less important than over 162. Our starters and our pen appear much superior to the last couple years. Not enough to matter in 162 because the long season takes a toll, And quality-or lack thereof- finds its level, but in 60 games? Sure. And remember the short season doesn’t help the best, because the best doesn’t need the benefits a short season offers. The defense is much better too, unless Nunez is playing third, anyway. so yes I agree with you, but it’s not out of the question.  
    • This was a nice read.  And that's not sarcasm.
    • No qualifying offers this season.
    • If Stroman gets a qualifying offer he would cost the O's their third pick (either the comp pick after round 2 or, if that pick is traded, their third round pick). Jake Odorizzi got a QO this off-season at the same age as Stroman with a less successful career to date. I think it is quite likely that Stroman gets one too.
    • I appreciate Wildcards's enthusiasm and optimism. This season is such a wildcard because of all the variables that really anything could happen and I wouldn't be overly surprised. Saying that, there is no reality where this is the beginning of a sustainable winning core.  There is just as much of a chance of this team losing ten straight games as they do of keep playing .500 ball the rest of this season.  As Drungo has point out, there are some guys who have started out this season way above their carer norms. Even if you believe Severino, Ruiz, Alberto and Nunez are breaking out as they enter their primes, does anyone think Cobb, Milone and Wojo are going to keep pitching to their current ERAs? Cobb maybe since it seems his splitter has come back, but I'm not buying long term sustainability on Milone and Hyde has used Wojo right but not letting him go more than twice through an order. 
    • What does that mean? What's the cost of Wildcard's optimism? Also, I don't think what I said constituted being negative.  That's an honest appraisal of the team.    Not much of what we are seeing looks sustainable.
    • Yea I don’t know that I buy they will spend what it takes but they have very little money committed long term and that is when you can take advantage of it.
