But he was lying flat (I think, I was only half watching).

Oh yeah, holding his leg while lying flat was bollocks. And it's not as if she could have held onto him if the cliff had collapsed anyway.

I think the slightly farcical way that whole bit was filmed was to emphasise that it wasn't a well thought through plan or something they had done before - just a solution some not very bright people had come up with on the fly to dispose of their dead prostitute.

Think that's the key there - swinging half a dozen corners into the box each game is going to wonders for your "chances created" stats.

But he's not the only player in the division to take corners.

And they weren't all useless:

That seemed odd but presumably to stop his momentum from carrying him over the cliff after he pushed the suitcase?

I haven't seen the piece, but wouldn't Newtons third law be of assistance here?

Also why at the start; on the cliff did the woman have to hold on to the man by his leg while he lay down only for him to later stand on the edge and look over?

Took most of the set-pieces.

I imagine Vaughan's pass completion was quite high, but knocking it back to your centre-half is not difficult.

First episode of the new Top of the Lake was a bit disappointing.

The first series was set in a small NZ community, so it's believable that everyone investigating and being investigated are connected but, in a city the size of Sydney, for the detective's adopted daughter to be engaged to the upstairs language tutor of the prostitute who was murdered and her boss to have a connection to the same brothel seems unlikely. Also for a group of blokes to be discussing their ratings of prostitutes in the middle of a busy coffee shop? And the dinner party wasn't credible either.

If it was new, I'd be out but as the first series was good, I'll give it a chance.

I thought it was utter bilge. I'm not sure what the many gratuitous sexual discussions were supposed to add. Make it seem edgy? Or to distract from the quality of the writing / acting. In fact the poor delivery of these just made it cringe worthy,

I have never seen an X-Men / Wolverine movie. Ever.

That is all.

"No blacks".

Where are all "The Blacks", eh? Where are they?
