Joi (missjoious) | 3834 comments Gillian Flynn's Sharp Objects has been made into an 8-episode miniseries premiering on HBO this Sunday, July 8th (in the USA).

It's been a while since I've read it- I think a couple years, but I remember how delightfully creepy and dark this was. It's been long enough I don't remember all the details- which I think will be better for enjoying the show. Amy Adams is the lead role, who I love so I'm pretty excited for this.

Early reviews have been mixed. Washington Post said it will be the "show of the summer". CNN said it's a wannabe Big Little Lies- but that's just their opinion. I absolutely loved Big Little Lies, so I have confidence I will enjoy this.

Here's the trailer

Anyone else going to be tuning in?


Jason Oliver | 2105 comments I didn't like Sharp Objects but I love Amy Adams. Might be pulled to try this out.


LibraryCin | 9082 comments Oh, shoot! I saw an ad for it on tv recently, but thought it was for a movie theatre movie, not HBO. I wanted to see it. Guess I won't unless it ends up on Netflix at some point. :-(

I'm tempted because I like Amy Adams too. And I actually liked the book just fine. But it's baseball season, so who am I kidding? I might save it for the winter.

KateNZ | 2674 comments Baseball season ie running season, lol Anita!!

This does look good, and I haven’t read the book so my view is uncoloured by it. I’ve seen so many ads. Will have to check if it’s on the NZ version of HBO when I get home.


Susie | 4488 comments I’m looking forward to watching it. I’m going to attempt to find the time to watch the first one tomorrow night. It airs at 11am but I’m guessing it won’t be kid friendly. 😜


Jason Oliver | 2105 comments So how was the show?


Susie | 4488 comments I still haven’t had a chance to watch it.

Well, please get on it because I'm waiting for someone to tell me if this is worthwhile (jk).

And it's the All-Star break so no baseball for like four days.

Joi (missjoious) | 3834 comments I tried to watch the first episode last night, and fell asleep.

I think this is a testament to how tired I was, and not the quality of the show though, will try again soon.
