I just figured out that Donna is Wayne's crazy girlfriend on Wayne's World. "Stacy, we broke up. Get the net!" I was thinking she was Trinity from the Matrix but bey straightened me out.

Also I really like the Air Force major. He was one of my favorite nobodies in the first season, all his lines sound like poetry. I especially like where they're taking him in season 2 so far.

I had the night from hell last night at work and was barely able to watch the first episode of Twin Peaks.

Default Re: Twin Peaks: some kind of watching party thrad or anything

Some observations after just three episodes:

1. What is it with all the phones being attached to walls or cords that plug into walls? Were they too stupid to have smart phones?

2. People actually think Twin Peaks, pop. 51,201, is a small town.

3. Piper Laurie has some ugly-ass bare feet.

4. I don't think I look that much like Jack Nance outside of the hair and shape of the face and nose and eye placement. No, I think he is much better looking than I.

5. You find prostitutes by going up a river. Symbolic?

6. Paging Dr. Richard Kimball, your one-armed man was seen in Twin Peaks.

7. Ooh, switchblade knives, so dangerous. Ooh, upward flashlight shining on face, so ominous.

8. Jesus Christ, Ed, wipe your hands before you come in the house. Ed, you idiot, you got your grease on my cotton balls. Oh wait... I suspect Lefty One-Eyed Lopes murdered Laura Palmer because she made too much noise.

9. FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper is obsessed, but not with crime-solving.

10. Wait, the cafe jukebox has the Audrey Horne theme music? Is that B-17?

11. Is it just me, or wouldn't you pay money to see Lara Flynn Boyle and Sherilyn Fenn get it on?

12. Peggy Lipton was hot in the early 90s. Then again, so was I, or at least I thought I was. She still is now, but I am not. That probably means I'll never sleep with her. *sigh*

13. The Palmers seem to take turns being lunatics. I suspect one of them murdered their daughter.

14. Miguel Fucking Ferrer.

I'm only through six episodes. I didn't realize the first season is only 8 episodes. Now I'm not so :freakout: that SOMEBODY binged the first season. And also, now I'm kinda mad that they're sort of making it look like one of the two suspects I first suspected which means that I'm totally wrong in my first guess. Another also, for some reason I thought the "weird Lynchian weirdness" happened later in the series, but that's simply not true. So far it's only a little bit of oddness and it's being introduced in a very sensible trickle.

Otherwise, for it being a character show, there are some fantastic characterizations going on. Starting with the Palmers. Even if it's colored in a very broad strokes, I find them fascinating. Grief can do some major shit to people and it can really stress a relationship.

I was also slow on the uptake. Madelyn was in a couple of episodes before I realized she's one of the people Coop's dream was telling him about.

What the fuck is up with all the donuts?


Was it foreshadowing? Jack "Eraserhead" Nance died as the result of a brawl with some panhandlers outside of a Winchell's donut store.

Royal Fucking Dano! Like Nance, he didn't live very many years after the series ran.

I tried watching some more of season 2 after bey went to sleep last night. I got as far as
*
and I was like NOPE! Nope nope nope nope nope nope.:nolike:

Looks like I will be watching the rest of this during the day with all my people and dogs awake and alert and ready to protect me.

pea you couldn't be more right about
*

I do like the other soap opera bits like Lucy's storyline, which is so human (so far). It is interesting and touching that in this crazy weird universe she has her own shit going on throughout. I like that it's not just the Laura Palmer show.

Finally,
*

*S2E7-ish?

And you guys all need to know that Leland's musical repertoire has a HUGE amount of overlap with my dad's, including Mairzy Doats as the default happy song. So anyone suffering from a case of earworm, pour out a forty for me, because I probably have it even worse.

I always heard "wouldn't you" in the song as "wooden shoe". It fit.

Hank Worden (1901-1992), the old waiter in Season 2 of this series, is playing this role the same as he played Mose Harper in The Searchers.

Finished season 1.

Well. That escalated quickly!

So many people with so many nefariousnesses going on. It's... It's almost like a soap opera!

Some more observations:

1. I noticed some intersect between Twin Peaks and Robocop. At least 3 actors were in both, Dan O'Herlihy, Miguel Ferrer, and Ray Wise.

2. Interestingly, Dan's son Gavan O'Herlihy plays Preston [King] of the Royal Canadian Mounties.

3. Zooey and Emily Deschanel's mom Mary Jo played Eileen on Twin Peaks, and their father Caleb directed several episodes.

That is Julee Cruise, who worked with David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti on lots of projects.

She also recorded the show's theme song with lyrics. I don't think it's actually in the show, but it looks like the videos of it have stills from the show, probably including some spoilers, so I'm going to make you go find it yourself if you want to see it so that I can remain blameless.

(Oh, the song is called Falling.)

You didn't even have to tell me cuz after all that I was like "okay I need to take a break from this" and I switched it to cartoons. I will stick it out for sure, though. Maybe give people time to catch up.
