    Except how does that fit with her apparently rejecting that poisonous care as a kid and thus living? I misread it as “psychics” the first time and that made more sense.
  2. S01.E08: Milk

    I’m only halfway through, but what am I watching? Did Camille deliberately allow herself to be poisoned and now I have to watch her hanging around being poisoned for an hour? This is so boring and stupid and a waste of time.

    I hope its not true that they remove the pigs teeth (while they're alive??). That seems horrible and unnecessary torture. I know farm animals are tortured in all sorts of ways like being kept in small crates, but I can't see the economic benefit to the teeth thing so I just hope it isn't really done. But if it is, its terrible detective work for the police not to have known that when they were talking about how much strength it takes and testing it out.

    I could see Adora drugging/poisoning girls, dressing them up, painting their nails, etc... but I really can't see her doing the gruesome teeth part. In fact I can't see anyone doing that or why they would want to, but her least of all, she seems too frail and hung up on appearances. I suspected Munchhausen's By Proxy before this for Marion, but it does seem out of nowhere for Amma - I don't recall any mentions of Amma being sickly, let alone with anything to serious as to require a g-tube. That should have been mentioned before now, to not seem like a ret-con. Amma has always seemed very hale and hardy and not at all worried about her own physical health or wellbeing, and no one else has mentioned her being sickly.

    Maybe he was saying, given that she was killed, he's glad she wasn't ALSO raped first? That's very reasonable. But if he's saying he'd rather have her dead than alive and having been raped, then that's really messed up. I know some people think that way, but I wouldn't think you'd say that about your daughter who is actually dead. I would think you'd be willing to make almost any deal with the universe to have her back, even if it meant she had been hurt in some way.

    Ooh, that could work. I do think there’s going to be some big reveal that Camille and/or her perspective isn’t what we think. The short and long hair in the flashbacks is confusing. It would make more sense if the long hair came first and then she suddenly cut it off, but other aspects make them seem the other way around.
  7. S01.E06: Cherry

    I haven’t read the book, but what would be the most unpredictable ending? Maybe Camille did it all - killed Marion, killed her roommate, and killed the girls in a wind gap (driving there and back secretly at night or whatever). Maybe she doesn’t even know it herself.
  8. Season Two Talk: Top of the Lake

    I didn't understand what was going on there, Robin was going to marry Johnno real quick in the jail?? She was totally going to do that until she found out he'd been messing around with a teenage girl? So besides assassinating his character, it made her look like an idiot. And I couldn't really remember who the people were that she was burning the dress with because its been years since I saw the first season, but I don't remember anyone from the first season she was that close with in that way. And what was the deal with the guy she shot in the first season showing up, having a wife and kids all of a sudden, attacking her dramatically well despite being seriously crippled, and then no one ever mentioning it again? And the above complaints are just as relates to the first season. All the stuff that was second season only made absolutely zero sense. I'm not even sure where to start. Puss wasn't attractive or appealing in any way, and I never understood Mary's attachment to him as he just got grosser and grosser. Miranda's character was bizarre and who hires a surrogate with their affair partner while one of them is still married to someone else?? But at least I guessed early on that she wasn't really pregnant. And they left a lot of stuff unresolved. What's going to happen to those babies? They never clarified if the women carrying them wanted to keep them or if there was a ransom plan or what. They let Puss get away, despite plenty of stuff to hold him on. Robin keeps on just talking to him without arresting him or calling in backup. Why was what's his name hiding under the sand waiting to shoot... who? I guess he was hallucinating but it didn't make sense. Nothing in this season made sense. That's the bottom line: nothing made sense, not plots and not characterizations.
  9. Season Two Talk: Top of the Lake

    I wish there were episode threads, because I have no idea what’s going on in half these scenes. I guess I’ll be back once I’ve finished season 2.

    Camille took the detective to the gang bang spot as part of a tour of crime scenes, so she clearly knew it could be considered a crime, whether or not she “consented” at that age.
  11. S01.E04: Ripe

    At first I thought it might turn out to be about Adora and Camille being the baby, but I guess not?
  12. S01.E03: Fix

    Now that you mention it, could very well be. Surprised it didn’t occur to me earlier; I think I’m somewhat trained by fiction to suspect that whenever a sister is 14 or more years older than the next sibling. I guess I assumed in this case Adora had another kid late because of a second marriage, but we don’t really know the history of when she married Alan or anything yet. Anyway, now that’s ou mention it, I think your idea very well might turn out to be true. (I haven’t read the book).
  13. S01.E03: Fix

    I just don't pause. If I miss a word, I miss it (I do miss most of them). On the other hand, I agree about the super quick flashes, flash-backs, whatever they are. A few of them have made me jump, but a lot of them leave me feeling like I just missed whatever it was. However, I still haven't been pausing. I figure they'll make stuff clear eventually if its important.
  14. S01.E03: Fix

    This episode was really confusing. Not even sure where to start. Amma's behavior is bizarre, I don't know what to make of her - is she supposed to have some kind of personality disorder? (I also have trouble telling all the teen girls apart; it took me a little while to be sure it was Amma at the pig farm.) Are there rehabs just for cutting? Do rehabs usually have young teenagers share rooms with grownups? I'm not catching any of the words on my small screen but I like seeing the discussion here. I am glad that they don't seem to be critical clues, just an extra layer for fun, like "easter eggs".

    I don't see how they could know that the person didn't use that loosening method - but maybe they can tell somehow (ew). In any case I think a better question is why someone would WANT to extract the teeth. As for physical strength, we know the body was left in the middle of town without anyone knowing, so whoever moved it must be a reasonably strong person - that wasn't a little kid; a 15 year old girl isn't that easy to lift up for, say, a small woman. But certainly doable for many women. So they are looking for a reasonably strong woman or an average strength man - that seems like it would rule out Adora, but who knows, maybe she has her weird husband or someone else doing the heavy lifting.
