Top of the Lake: China Girl was awfully boring. I can't believe I finished it.
I quite enjoyed it but the ending was pants. Made me feel a bit cheated really.
I kind of don't like how the ex-husband is kind of evil/the enemy in Doctor Foster now.
I just started watching the original season to catch up, but I'm finding it such a slog to get through.
Hasn't he always been the enemy?
Yeah but it's much more obvious. Season 1 he was like Rex, Season 2 he's more like George when he was evil if I'm comparing to DH.
Yeah you're right. But his characterisation is a little inconsistent, one scene he's acting like a moustache twirling villain and the next it reveals he's really not in control of what's happening beyond pure chance. I liked the revenge angle but they seem to have just dropped it this week.
I hope Gemma and Simon team up to destroy their shit kid if there is a third series.
I'd rather they destroy Ros.
And bring in Emily Thorne.
I was genuinely upset that her 'one last thing to do' wasn't ruin Ros's wedding.
I'm on the second season of Please Like Me gherls; and it's great isn't it.
I miss Claire, but alas, Josh wacking the baby in the shower to clean it after a shit; well, if only I'd have thought of that when looking after my niece for the first time.
Has anyone else given The Good Place a try? How's the opinion over here.
Although it can be very silly, the show is smarter than it looks and very meta.
The second season has been a treat so far, very worthy.
I was so behind and I just can't at all the praise heaped on Dr. Foster. I've just finished the 1st series and I think I refuse to watch series 2. Its a total joke. I love campy, over the top and don't really have a problem with ridiculousness either, when someone moans about things being unrealistic I'm the first to chime in thats a TV show and 'entertainment' but it was just making me angry to watch such a stupid stupid woman.
I think its the tone, in that, if it was more campy fatal attraction-esk, I'd be into it more, but it's trying to be too real and I'm just sitting here rolling my eyes.
I tried it because I love me some Kristen Bell, and the fantastical aspects of the show felt refreshing, but I just couldn't get into it, like, at all. The British ex-presenter is a really bad actress. I'm glad Kristen seems to have found herself a solid show on a major network, though; she deserves it.
Ahh that's a shame to hear. Try and reach the end of the season, it really brings forth a twist on the story, a major one.
I ADORE The Good Place! I'm rewatching Season 1 now before starting Season 2 because everyone keeps referencing the finale twist & I can't remember a thing about it.
Ugh I was googling the shows cast and read about the twist by accident.....
I'm loving season 1 so far, gotta love Kristen Bell! And she looks amazing!
Poor Queen Jameela Jamil.
It's the finale of Doctor Foster tonight. I'm so perched. I'd be satisfied if nobody has a happy ending, to be honest. I started stanning Kate this series, to be honest.
Well that ending was bleak.
I think we could get another series in a few years but I'm in no great rush to see more of the depressing adventures of Dr.Foster. Maybe we can recast Tom with somebody who can actually act . . .
Spoiler: Ending Spoilers
The spoken to camera bit at the end was maybe a little much, I was half expecting the reveal of Simon appearing from behind the door for a reveal they had got back together in the hopes of luring him back.
Still, you have to think her life will probably be better without that little shit ruining everything.
I really like The Good Place. I feel like the first 3 episodes have been a bit samey with the whole reset and repeat element so I hope they figure that out in the next episode.
