Moody Mysteries And More Punching Bags

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes and Glen Weldon are joined by producer Jess Gitner and NPR Books editor Petra Mayer. They discuss the new Sundance miniseries 'Top of the Lake,' a crime drama starring Elisabeth Moss and Holly Hunter, directed and written by Jane Campion. They'll talk about the pacing, the acting, and how to best put a drug trip on screen. Then they'll defend some Pop Culture Punching Bags, among them The Monkees, Billy Joel, the Kardashians and the so-called movie flop 'John Carter.' All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week.
