"Between Renata (Laura Dern) screaming that she will not NOT be rich and Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) ranting about her distrust of short people, lost in the shuffle is that Big Little Lies Season 2 has a problem writing its women," says Kayla Cobb. She notes that while Big Little Lies has strong female characters, the show "has forgotten exactly how women talk to each other." "Even when it was at its most dramatic Big Little Lies’ first season understood how women communicated, likely by drawing so heavily from Liane Moriarty’s stellar novel of the same name," says Cobb, adding: "Somewhere over the past two years Big Little Lies has lost that nuance. This season’s most jarring moments are filled with bitter, direct confrontation...Most women aren’t that confrontational about complex emotions, especially not when they’re talking to a friend as important as Celeste is to Jane." Cobb wonders if the problem this year is creator David E. Kelley struggling to write for women without being able to pull dialogue directly from Moriary's book. ALSO: Yes, Young Sheldon's Iain Armitage also appears on Big Little Lies.
