Finally, we get to the heart of this story. Bebe's kid is now Linda's kid. Mia seems like maybe she was gonna straight-up steal that baby and Lexi is a nightmare of a human, but Pearl doesn't seem to care. At least now we know why they dropped 3 episodes all at once.
What do The Vagina Monologues, Kid n Play, and Irish Quintuplets (is that a thing?) have in common? They all figure prominently in our discussion of Episode 2 of Hulu's Little Fires Everywhere, "Seeds and All." Find out what happens when Elena Richardson has more than 4 oz of wine (spoiler: it involves a hand mirror).
Big Little Podcast is back and we're tackling Reese Witherspoon's latest passion project, Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu. Is Elena Richardson a monster? Is Mia an angsty artist or just kind of b*itchy? What does the Dave Matthews Band have to do with any of this? Find out in the first episode of our new season!
As we all deal with the end of BLL, we offer up the first of our Big Little Recap episodes. Here we do our best to answer your questions to us. We also talk about our favorite moments, music, and maniacal screams from the two seasons. And of course do the very important work of giving out Monterey superlatives.
The end is here. And....we have have a lot we want to know. Streep and Kidman face off in the courtroom acting, Jane gets some good lovin', Madeline and Ed kiss and make up, Renata destroys the world in a red jumpsuit, and Bonnie says goodbye to her mother and all the lies. There is a lot to discuss with this season (series?) finale.
We are reaching the end and the Monterey Five are tense and arguing, Renata and Gordon have nothing but a mouthful of fucks and tissues, Bonnie writes a tell-all letter, and Celeste is on trial for being a Bad Mother. This episode is like Madeline in her old wedding dress-totally busting out with things to talk about.
We are getting stressed out with where this season is going! Mary Louise is definitely manipulating everyone-even Renata, but why? To get the twins or to get answers? Bonnie is under a lot of stress and may end up under water. Ed and Madeline try the weirdest hugging retreat to save their marriage. Has Jane ended up with a wrong kind of man again? And the biggest little lie is that we didn't get to see Madeline throw her ice cream at Meryl Louise Streep.
She Knows. But who knows? Mary Louise? Det. Quinlin? Bonnie's mom? Or is it just that Madeline now knows everyone can tell she is unhinged. We take a look at this episode which includes the slap heard round the world. Where is this season going?
We decided to go to the original source and read and discuss Liane Moriarty's book, Big Little Lies, which the series is based on. In this episode, we continue our book club to talk about the second half of the book over another glass of wine.
*spoiler alert if you haven't read the book!
