    Just finished watching over the Christmas break. Great series. Highly recommend.

    Not sure about Johnno's ultimate role in the rape. I'm going with him not being involved, and not being able to stop it has caused his tremendous guilt through the years.

    Just finished binging last night. I like that it was only 7 episodes and they didn't completely wander like Twin Peaks.

    The bit with them telling Johnno he wasn't Matt's son seemed like it was thrown in at the last moment to remove the eww factor of him and Robin and to allow for continuing their relationship even to go so far as adopting the child. IE redemption for the one she gave away.

    While I think the Paradise camp was over written I do see this as a womens story all the way and that place was essentially a place for them to run to as a recluse.

    All the characters Tui, Robin, her mother went there as an escape. It's not clear to me though that the incarnation they gave to Holly Hunter really did all that much for the story though.

    As mentioned I am still wondering if Johnno was in on the Robin rape. He never did answer the question. All he had to do was say "No" as Robin said and he didn't.

    It looks like there is going to be a season 2. I thought it done. It's going to air sometime in 2017.

    Season 1 aired in 2013.
