Series Sunday: Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu TV

(Little Fires Everywhere E1-E3) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Watch an adaptation of a book series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author, cast and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is Little Fires Everywhere now playing on Hulu TV. The intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and an enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. Per the mini-series description, the story explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, the ferocious pull of motherhood and the danger in believing that following the rules can avert disaster.

Oh, I've only patiently waited 2 ½ years for Little Fires Everywhere to adapt to the television screen. Seriously, ever since I read this novel back in 2017, I have wanted to see it play out with a bomb cast. What better duo than the beautiful Kerry Washington (whom I loved as Olivia Pope in Scandal) and the talented Reese Witherspoon (rocking her role as Madeline in Big Little Lies). They bring such chemistry to the screen.

Having already read the novel, I hold high expectations of this TV mini-series. Especially because I subscribed to Hulu TV just to watch it. So far the first three (3) episodes meet my expectations and now I'm feening for the other episodes. As I mentioned, Kerry Washington as Mia Warren and Reese Witherspoon as Elena Richardson have great chemistry. I pick up all of their emotions as they interact. The supporting cast is most certainly holding their own too. Even though I know the outcome, it is still interesting to watch it play out.

Tune in with me! The remaining episodes will stream every Wednesday per the schedule below. And if you have not read my original high praise review, do so now. I will be back with my final review of the TV adaptation after the finale. In the meantime, follow my live tweet thread. Click the title link below for the official trailer and extras. Happy Watching!
