the leaking nipple was odd wasn't it.
would that actually happen?

clangermum Tue 20-Aug-13 11:35:27

Yes it's much more satisfying than having everything neatly explained

And also, as with a programme like top of the lake, there's room for different takes on it

clanger that was my understanding of both those situations too.

I like the fact that nothing is clear cut, that you have to work quite a lot out as the viewer. Although having a thread like this helps enormously wink

But was it a brothel? I thought maybe she had misread that part of the situation too, she was so set on saving someone connected to her daughter. Maria said 'this is my home'. Not that that means necessarily it wasn't a brothel - I just thought maybe it was where a group of migrant workers lived

I wondered if the daughter had a nipple piercing and mum just wanted to feel close to her?

Also, if that was a brothel there was a bit of a staff shortage.

I wanted to like it and but God it was tosh. It was full of holes and improbabilities and pointless scenes but I got the feeling that because it was classy drama with a good cast you were supposed to ignore that.

I was puzzled [and repelled] by the safety pin, then thought it she'd done it to make her look more authentic as a sex-worker when she went to 'rescue' Maria, who didn't want to be rescued. that was another baffling part of the story, seemingly slotted in to make the episode last an hour.

Were we meant to infer that the young soldier had done the shooting when we saw him shoot that rifle? Or would you have only thought that if you had read this thread??? Yes, I agree. Pointless things shoved in. Why was Anna's mother putting a safety pin through her boob? It seemed just voyeuristic to me. And there was a shot of her breast leaking. What was that for? If there is going to be another series to explain all this, at least make the first one interesting enough to make people want to watch again?

The note said

You asked for it
You deserve it
All souls (day?)
Happy returns

All Souls' Day is on 2nd November which is when shootings were isn't it?

waikikamookau Mon 19-Aug-13 08:08:20

I couldn't properly read his invitation, but it said All Souls, and he was at some All Souls gig at the moment, having closure, hmm

My idea of the young soldier shooting Steven would have been much better - Channel 4 - you need me!

The ending was a great big let down - it didn't exactly end, just fizzled to a stop randomly. I guess they ran out of ideas - annoying/

What on earth was the point of the old copper & the type of gun stuff?

waikikamookau Mon 19-Aug-13 08:03:01

rory Kinnear's dad died when he was 10 shock sad

waikikamookau Mon 19-Aug-13 08:02:21

bit of an oh, is that it
at the end, unfortunately as my expectations were higher.

dexter73 Mon 19-Aug-13 07:50:42

Jenda - totally agree. That was a real let down.

ButThereAgain Sun 18-Aug-13 22:54:41

Hmm, I thought it dwindled away a bit today, reducing to: folks turn their back on other folk's unhappiness, which makes bad things happen.

The only poignancy that remained for me was the brilliant performance of Anna's dad, and the memory that Rory Kinnear, like the character he was playing, lost his dad in childhood -- which made all the sadness in his performance feel very raw for me. Dear old Roy Kinnear (Rory's dad), he was a lovely.

so basically tommy felt guilty over his wife and was going to kill his self but didnt - reporter stopped him

stephen went ott/mental and went on a killing spree day after he was beaten up and pissed on by tommy and uncle

so maybe if tommy hadnt had attacked and humiliated stephen that his wife and others would be alive?

Jenda Sun 18-Aug-13 22:38:51

whoops, so annoyed I said it twice grin

Jenda Sun 18-Aug-13 22:38:04
