Back in Haggett Hall, we watched the final two episodes together. It was an event (unofficially), with the biggest gathering we’d had for an episode watch ever. All of the people on the floor who knew we’d been watching the show wanted to come by for the finale, which they all knew was extra trippy.
See, on Netflix now, and on the DVDs, the final two episodes are separate, but back in the day, as we watched from Nick’s tapes recorded off of broadcast TV, it was one big episode. My biggest memory, at least for this first half, was being frustrated with how much time they were spending on the performances in the Miss Twin Peaks pageant. I kept thinking, “There’s only two hours left! Get back to Windom Earle! Get back to BOB and Cooper and Major Briggs! Get back to the Black Lodge stuff! I want some things explained!”
Did I mention that Nick was getting his revenge for making him tell me who killed Laura Palmer? He did not tell me how the whole show ends… [Read more…]
Because of this episode, and Major Briggs, I shall always remember that the capital of North Carolina is Raleigh.
The Miss Twin Peaks Pageant is nearing, along with assorted and related antics. Beyond those, Cooper discovers Windom Earle was looking into the Black Lodge as part of Project Bluebook, and the Major goes for a walk in the woods to clear his mind. (More on THAT brilliant move later.) [Read more…]
Well, it’s midday on Sunday, May 21st, and I’ve decided to admit to myself that I just don’t have enough time to get the remaining three episodes of season two both watched and posted about before the revival series premieres tonight at 9pm. I might have made it if I weren’t having some other fans over to watch (complete with donuts, coffee, and cherry pie), but the premiere must be watched properly.
It’s time for guest star Ted Raimi!
Also, the moon in this episode is half full! Again! [Read more…]
Counting this one, five episodes left! (I’d thought it was four a moment ago until I looked it up! I’m running out of time!!)
And that’s all I have to say about that. [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…]
