  1. Why Watch says

    It was a good night to read the newspaper. Rather enjoyable, more so than watching the miserable shows on the tube.

  2. Cvs121 says

    Watched “Top of the Lake” 7 part mini series on the Sundance channel. Same dark and brooding show like the Killing. The only series on regular TV that was worth watching was Law and Order SVU.
