TOP OF THE LAKE: CHINA GIRL
September 10, 2017  | By David Bianculli

Sundance, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
SERIES RETURN: When Elisabeth Moss starred in Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake a few years ago, it was supposed to be a one-shot miniseries – but the star and director enjoyed working together so much, they came up with an excuse to do it again, even more darkly. Moss, as Australian Det. Robin Griffin, investigates the death of a young Asian prostitute – a case that continues to get more complex and personal as the episodes unfurl. Co-stars include Nicole Kidman, recently of HBO’s Big Little Lies, and Gwendoline Christie, one of the standout supporting players from HBO’s Game of Thrones. Christie, Kidman, and Moss (whose other triumphant TV roles include Mad Men and The Handmaid’s Tale) all seem to embrace the obvious here, that TV is providing the best roles these days for women. And for men, too… For full reviews, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower and Ed Bark's Uncle Barky's Bytes.
