Sneaky Good Binge Watch

Top of the Lake Spring Break is finally here, hooray!  Typically Spring Break can be spent outside frolicking and enjoying the nice spring weather.  Unfortunately, as we all are aware, we live in Michigan and that might not be an option this year thanks to Mother Nature.  Which means it is perfect time to stay indoors, put your feet up, relax, and binge watch something from your friendly KDL branch.  You could catch-up on shows that have run their course like Breaking Bad or The Sopranos.  Or if you want to be in the loop for shows that are nearing their finale, Mad Men or Californication would be excellent choices.  But if you want something sneaky good that didn’t get much hype, I would highly recommend Top of the Lake.

Top of the Lake is a show filmed and set in beautiful New Zealand and follows a detective who is investigating the disappearance of a 12-year-old girl.  The detective is played by Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss (who was nominated for an Emmy) and gives a truly outstanding performance as a very strong female lead in an environment dominated by male testosterone.  The series explores many themes throughout and takes great care to develop each character within their own experience.  The series is very unexpected and thankfully stays far away from the cliches of police procedurals found too often on TV.  Top of the Lake is a great show you will be sad ends after only six superb episodes.
