Drama: Top of the Lake. It's on Netflix. From New Zealand. Check it out.

Just started watching the first episode. At first I thought I was supposed to empathize with the old guy (Matt) but hell no. The girl playing Tui (Jacqueline Joe) is very good and making it hard to watch. Had to take a break halfway through.

Wife likes this a lot. I haven't seen it yet.

Holy shit! I just started watching that last week. I've only seen the first episode but I really really like it.

Have you seen AMC's The Killing? I watched season 1 of that and loved it. They have similar feels to them. I'm so behind on TV in general.

I need a full weekend of nothing but lounging and tv ASAP.

The Killing season 1 and 2 are amazing. It was cancelled after season 2, but then picked up again after people threw a fit. Then season 3 was only ok, and it was cancelled again. I was upset the first time it was cancelled, but I don't care as much this time around.

I've literally never heard of this. Thanks!

It's pretty dark and heavy. Wonderfully acted and looks beautiful, too. Highly recommend.
