The misery of beautiful people continues to be a moral as well as aesthetic pleasure as Big Little Lies continues its second series.

A second season was a creative risk. But so far that decision to continue the story is one well worth following.

Happily enough these first few episodes are just as engrossing as those that came before. Scenes rapidly fluctuate from concerning to hilarious, but keeping up with the pace is no problem: This emotional roller coaster is far too fun.

I'm still not sure I can say that the return of Big Little Lies is altogether necessary. But I can say that it promises to be thoroughly enjoyable and smart.

It's harder now to ignore, watching the early episodes of Season Two, that Big Little Lies is offering up some of the best psychological storytelling on television.
