Top of the Lake - great. My first impression was "bleh it's just The Killing in New Zealand, not this shit again". But it's much better than that. It's intense, the character development is superb, it's hard to watch, you really hate some people and are afraid of what might happen, which means they're doing something right. It is also a bit disappointing in the end; there are some weird Lynchian tones hinted at early on, making me think it might drift into a semi-Twin-Peaks territory and it never develops that thread. And the last episode really sucks; all the episodes before the last are slow and develop things gradually and beautifully, and the last one just wraps everything up neatly in a rushed way. Totally worth watching. It did all feel a bit disjointed, as most modern TV shows do, like they were writing it as they went along without a great overall plan, and it had a lot more promise than it delivered, but still just way more real and powerful than almost anything else on TV.
The Fall - meh, good. Totally straightforward BBC-style crime serial. Not really anything interesting about it, hey there's some crime and some detectives, with no particular twist or local character, but it's very well made, the acting is good, it looks beautiful. Watchable.
Nobody Walks - underrated; simple little obvious movie, but nicely done; it flows well, some good little moments of human interaction. It's right in the early-Lena-Dunham wheelhouse of disfunctional upper class intellectual families.
BBC Storyville - "The Road" - really well done slice of life doc. I love this kind of thing; reminds me of "The Tower". Sad and beautiful, this world.
Endeavour - old-school BBC style detective show, in the sense that it's sort of charming but the "mysteries" are totally retarded, the local characters are shallow stereotypes, and it sets you up from the beginning to let you know what you're going to get and then gives it to you. It's like a warm bowl of milk and a cardigan, very comforting. I think it's great, carried by the delightful Shaun Evans and Roger Allam.
Out of the Wild - trash reality show survival thing, but I'm a sucker for this and found it addicting. Better than Survivorman or Man vs Wild for my taste. The group dynamic is pretty interesting and much nicer than the typical vote-them-off reality format.
Crap : Orphan Black, The White Queen, Silver Linings Playbook, Rectify, lots of other crap that doesn't bear mentioning.
Lots of good food docs on Netflix right now. "Three Stars" is the best, really superb, but I also enjoyed "Step Up to the Plate", and "A Matter of Taste: Serving Up Paul Liebrandt", both interesting.
