Also watched the first Derry Girls, funny enough but jesus the acting in it is shocking.
Really?? I think they're all very good. I think its meant to be overacted though isn't it?

Its strange seeing Tommy Tiernan as the quiet one of them all.

Why overact it though? The main girl is completely distracting the way she overacts and the nun in the school is clearly trying to steal the show by overacting too. The writing is grand, the actual jokes are decent, there is no need for the stupidly OTT acting.

It's probably quite loose with the truth but Waco is entertaining.

Burned through Big Little Lies in the space of a few days, super stuff, highly recommend it.

Great performances out of everyone, especially Reese.

Nicole and yer one Shailene Woodley played the fragile victim roles brilliantly, but I think she had an equally difficult task in playing the spoiled, prissy bitch while actually remaining very likeable for the audience.

I correctly guessed that Nicole's husband was the rapist; most people probably did though right? I read the book synopsis and it sounds like it would have been WILDLY obvious in that.

Streep cast for season 2, would you adam and eve it. As his mother, I'm told. That sounds amazing, but it feels like a show that could jump the shark at a moment's notice.

Correct. According to wiki it was controversial because it was nominated (and won) in the miniseries category at the Golden Globes, from which a second season should technically disqualify it. They announced after the nominations or something, so the other shows were bulling.

Well it was up against Top of the Lake, Fargo, Feud and The Sinner. None of those are an actual one series miniseries.

Its based on a book and it was just supposed to be a one off thing, but the writer of the book is writing the story for the second season now. It'll probably be a bit rushed but the first one was very good alright
