TEAL IS THE NEW BLACK

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

late-night ses­sions with Marie (Susie Porter, left) are dis­cov­ered. Vera (Kate Atkin­son), mean­while, is fi­nally em­brac­ing her dark side and has be­gun go­ing out on a limb for the ladies even though it means break­ing the rules. Wet blan­ket Ally (Kate Jenk­in­son) fi­nally stands up for her­self against ex­girl­friend and cold-hearted killer Marie. And, thanks to the help of some drugs, Liz (Celia Ire­land) show­cases her ma­ter­nal side. Although not in the way you would ex­pect. Porter has been a sub­lime ad­di­tion to the al­ready stel­lar cast, man­ag­ing to bring just the right mix of vul­ner­a­bil­ity and cold fury to the role. Thank good­ness this se­ries was spared the death penalty as it goes from strength to strength. ONCE hailed as a fem­i­nist hero, Lena Dun­ham (left) has had a well-doc­u­mented fall from grace thanks to a se­ries of gaffes. Her show is equally flawed but there are mo­ments of great­ness amid the youth­ful self-in­dul­gence. The episode where Marnie (Al­li­son Wil­liams) and ex-boyfriend Char­lie (Christo­pher Ab­bott) re­con­nect for one last date is cer­tainly worth re­vis­it­ing.
