It’s time for guest star Ted Raimi!
Also, the moon in this episode is half full! Again! [Read more…]
This episode kind of treads water in order to set some things up before. It avoids delving into just what the hell DID happen to Josie, but it does have some stuff with Major Briggs and elements of Lodge lore. In the interest of continuing to speed these along before the premiere Sunday, no more reminiscing! On we go! [Read more…]
You know, it’s strange. The first time I saw this episode (and the rest of the series), I really had no problem with Billy Zane’s character. I thought he was a good match for Audrey somehow, and–well, really, I don’t think I gave him all that much thought beyond that. Now, I find him bothersome. Not on Evelyn Marsh levels of bothersome, mind you. Not even James Hurley bothersome, but…somewhere around there. I’m not sure if it’s just that I’m older and more critical now, or if it’s that, the first time, I didn’t know where his story line would go, so there was, perhaps, more mystery and possibility about him. Knowing now that what we see is all we get, he’s just kind of blah and annoyingly suave.
John Justice Wheeler could almost be an author-insert/Mary Sue character. Maybe that’s what bothers me. Does the guy HAVE any faults? [Read more…]
On we continue with our headlong rush through the woods to what until just a little while ago was considered the series finale of Twin Peaks! But first, we gotta polish off that whole Evelyn Marsh thing…
Watch in horror as I squish down an entire episode into only a few sentences and images! [Read more…]
Confession time: When he was showing the series to me, Nick made a joke that I have since stolen and used each and every time I showed it to someone else. When Jean Renault is shot and collapses dead on the floor of Dead Dog Farm, Nick joked, “Next episode, Pierre Renault shows up! ‘You keel mah three brothers…”
So, there it is.
Four more days until the revival premieres, so let’s get this one going! [Read more…]
