Let's Guess What Nicole Kidman's First Line Will Be In Season 2 of Top of the Lake

Earlier this week, it was reported that Nicole Kidman would be joining the second season of Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake in an “undisclosed part.” To fans of the show—even ones like myself who were underwhelmed by its conclusion—this was a reason to be excited.

Here is a bad idea: to celebrate the return of Orange Is the New Black, a restaurant in Singapore, in an apparent partnership with Netflix, is doing a pop-up “prison dining experience.” That means “home-cooked prison grub” served in a jail-like cafeteria setting.
