    Yeah HBO released the Sunday shows early to avoid clashing with the Oscars.

    i'm watching. it's definitely got my attention and there are quite a good few interesting dynamics going on.

    reese seems to be the lead and i proper love/hate her character so she must be doing something right.

    the nicole/alexander storyline i find myself most drawn too but i hate her wig and i just feel a bit uncomfortable watching her be sexual.

    laura dern is amazing as bitch on heels.

    shaileen i've been trying to like but she is quite poor here.

    yeah, it's all pretty good. don't even really care whodunnit.

    I'm quite liking Shaileen, she seems good for that role. Nicole is making me all sort of uncomfortable, both good and bad. Laura and Zoë I hope to be featured more at the expence of all the boring husbands, including Skarsgård.

    Why is this only a miniseries? :angry:

    I watched the first episode, it's ok but it's all about the cast. Do we get to find out who died or is it going to be a secret till the end?

    "I said THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU" seemed a bit much from Laura Dern.

    I watched Episode 1. The tone is all over the place, making it seem a little janky. And WHAT is Nicole's problem with WIGS? She's such a TWAT.

    I downloaded the two episodes to watch on my train journey but the audio files are corrupt. I was so in the mood for some high class Kidman too

    I am a big Kidman fan, huge, the BIGGEST. So I am allowed to say it. But the woman is always flopping on a terrible wig no matter the role and it's getting on my NERVES.

    I think the plastic face has been a much bigger distraction lately.

    Maybe that's the point of the wigs.

    I guess you won't be tuning in for season 2 of Top of the Lake then?

    AND the added on AGE SPOTS on that face filled with more poison than Alexander Litvinenko's teacup! WHY?

    I don't see the need for a new season of Top of the Lake, it was brilliant as a one off

    can't she just crawl back into her Virginia Woolf skin? I liked her like that

    Loved this. Reese doesn't have the greatest range but when she gets the right role she's dynamite. Felt a bit unnecessary her abusing her dead mother Laura Dern in that way. Nicole is an enigma and was she having anal sex up against that mirrored wardrobe door or does Tarzan just have a good aim?

    Very intriguing though. Like The Slap meets Desperate Housewives.

    Just starting episode 2. Why did they ditch PJ Harvey for the tunes?

    Oh yes, considering these are meant to be the metropolitan liberal elite of Monteray, why would they be offended by AVENUE Q as a community theatre production?

    Episode 3 was fantastic. Reese showing her character isn't 100% Pure Bitch and Nicole growing some balls. Not a very showy role but Robin Weigert as the therapist was outstanding.

    Laura Dern's office sex felt unnecessary but I liked her comment about oral sex with Snow White and Dumbo.

    Is it too obvious that Shailene's rapist is
    Alexander Skarsgård? I don't think she's met him yet.

    Is it? it could be Adam Scott. He was looking funny at his stepdaughter.

    Episode 3 was the strongest, Renatta was the best part. I'm tempted to just wikipedia the book to see who gets murdered.

    As much as I love Nicole, her storyline is rather shit and the second best queen of the show is clearly Renata! Reese is still everything.

    I thought that the identity of the rapist was rather obvious and makes things even more interesting.

    Nicole's story is the best one! God it's well played. That entire scene in the therapist's office was a masterclass in acting from both Nicole and Hot Skarsgard.

    Who do you think Jane's rapist is?

    Not Perry? That would be shit.

    Another thought on the rapist:

    What if Jane knows full well who it was and she moved to Monteray with the intention of entwining herself in the life of his family and plotting a deadly revenge?

    Oh this sounds quite tempting. Even the vaguest similarity to 'Desperate Housewives' is going to pique the ZU INTEREST

    COME BACK BREE :(

    It's not as sharp but it's enough to fill the gap, especially if you want blonde power wives threatening each other over SABOTAGED BIRTHDAY PARTIES. And who DOESN'T?

    I've always though Reese was a bit ONE NOTE whichever role she plays but she's like an onion in this.

    Does it really matter though? I don't think it will be revealed until the last episode.
