    I really think that Nicole Kidman is the answer to Michael’s blind item from last week’s AA session
    This is the second tv show she will be on But I think she is free to do whatever she wants movies or tv or both

  2. Joey Padron says:

    Good poster for Top Of The Lake’s new season! Can’t wait to see season 2!

  3. Fingers crossed that Chelsea got a face AND personality transplant!

    Wasn’t the Salvation plot just done on No Tomorrow? (rhetorical question…of course it was)

    I’m glad S2 of Top of the Lake will be somewhere else entirely, Robin needs to be able to put everything behind her, I hope she can…
