Anyone Watch Top of the Lake China Girl??
Loved the first series - Campion made this a little different as there are quite a few laughs throughout.

thought both were great. 1st series is a Bit Female centric.
Thought the second series was better…..

+1

Writing is getting lazier each episode. The edge of your seat feeling the earlier seasons had is gone. Jon snore is invincible now. Continues to do the dumbest shit every episode but can't be killed off, too important now. If he's out of options just bring in a character we've known for 5 minutes to sacrifice himself, don't forget some slow motion and sad music so we are reminded we should care. White walkers are boring. 6 seasons of "winter is coming" and they haven't done anything. Mind you they are only an overnight jog away. Roll Eyes I swear the whole continent can't be larger than the Peak District.

****************************** SPOILERS MAYBE ******************************

^^^ hahaha i meant just leaking but yeah I agree with what you're saying. Still pretty exciting but its got to the point late on where they're just showing what everyone wants to see, before it was all death, pillaging, people you liked dying etc

Since Ozarks the only new show this year thats really good is Tinstar, just tremendous, Tim Roth underplays well in a heightened drama.

^ Was alright that. The new prog on after it Snowfall(?) looks like it could be decent series.

Most of the users blamed prescription drugs for their addiction.

Snowfall created by John Singleton who did Boyz in the Hood. So far it's decent.

Narcos season 3 very good for those who haven't watched it.
