Five episodes into HBO’s limited series “Big Little Lies,” we know that this show is deeper than a glorified soap opera about after-school pick up politics. The show (based off Liane Moriarty’s novel of the same name), explores the violence of affluent malaise. We’ve seen Chekov’s gun — over and over again — and we’re waiting for it to go off. There is excitement in the way the show uses the looming threat and fantasy of gun violence to propel the plot forward, but there is also a denser, dark conversation lingering beneath the surface. Perhaps the biggest conversation to come. »
