This week marks the 1st Anniversary of The Golden Age of Television blog. We thought we would take a look back at the past year of blogging and look into the future as well.
This week on the roundtable we continue with our Summer Television Secret Santa. Katie gifted the TV mini-series, Top of the Lake, to Jane. Below is their conversation about the show.
Katie: So Jane, Top of the Lake. Any thoughts off the top?
Jane: I really enjoyed the series. I think the pilot was my favorite episode. The opening scene was stunning. Watching Tui walk into the water was so emotional for me, which was quite a feat of story telling. I did not know this girl or her story, but it was still incredibly sad. The entire series was beautifully shot.
This week, and for a number of the weeks to follow, we will be doing Summer Television Secret Santa. We each randomly chose a name and were given the job of gifting a television show to that person. This week we will be discussing the person we drew, the show we chose for them and why. In the coming weeks we will be pairing down our roundtable to two and interviewing our Secret Santa about the show they were gifted (or forced) to watch. The rules state that you may watch as much or as little of the show as you like and that the gift giver must have seen at least a portion of the show as well.
