Our Big Little Lies Book Club Podcast

Big Little Lies Book Club

Episode 116: The Water Cooler Gang kicks back with a bottle (or three) of wine for our Big Little Lies Book Club. Plus, we dish the premieres of Legion, Girls, and more!

This week at the Water Cooler, we’re embarking on a first – the Water Cooler Podcast book club. As you’re well aware, popular novels are often adapted for screens both big and small. It’s a whole “pre-sold concept” thing. HBO’s hotly anticipated adaptation of Liane’s Moriarity’s 2014 “chick lit” novel Big Little Lies captured our attention, so, with that, we kick off our Big Little Lies Book Club. We talk about what the novel does particularly well, what it doesn’t, and what themes we took away from it given our varied backgrounds. Follow the Big Little Lies book club at home! Please feel free to post comments or questions here to start the conversion leading up to next weekend’s premiere of the limited series.

But before that, we talk briefly about Wednesday’s premiere of FX’s Legion, the return of HBO’s Girls, and the unveiling of the opening credits for FX’s upcoming Ryan Murphy miniseries Feud: Bette and Joan in our TV Tidbits segment.

Finally, we close with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.

Thanks for listening and thank you, in advance, for remembering to rate us on iTunes!

    Will you be addressing (and reviewing) the Grammys in your next podcast? I’m very interested in your take on it.

            I’m an Adele fan you can probably presume. 😉

            And since I’m not from the US I liked that it wasn’t suffocated with political statements.
            Corden was not as annoying as I usually find him to be.

            All in all I thought it was much better than last year.
