Re: Episode 8 (Season 2 Premiere)

Thoughts on this rewatch: A lot of stuff to love in this episode but it also drags in places and there's a lack of focus. The hospital food joke isn't that funny and outstays its welcome. Leisurely 3-minute opening - Kimmy Roberston moved to main cast. Piper Laurie no longer listed so Catherine's de...

Re: Episode 1

Just began my own rewatch the other day and concerning the one armed man, isn't it a bit of serendipity that Hawk loses him in a room bathed in blue? We can pretend it's a deliberate attempt to foreshadow a Blue Rose case. One curiosity is that Cooper asks Norma for the list of recipients for the M...

Re: Episode 7

The most action packed episode yet. Only a few things to note on this viewing: 'There's gotta be a way to turn it off' - I've always hated this (presumably looped) line from James as he's still saying it as he turns the music off. Poor Nadine. Wendy Robie's done such a great job this season to take ...

Re: Episode 6

Another immensely enjoyable episode! A few thoughts: Nice touch having the Invitation To Love display at Horne's - I never spotted this on broadcast or the VHS cassettes. I love the little rewind on the Dictaphone where we hear Lucy feeding Waldo. Harry: "I know all I need to know, I love her a...

Re: Episode 5

Another good 'un! Josie's appearance/disappearance/reappearance in Ben's office has always bothered me - particularly as all they had to do was ditch the first cutaway to her. As Jonah says upthread, James & Donna by the gazebo has quite a season 2 feel - shame we never got to see the scene with...

Re: Double R Jukebox Records

Rewatching episode 5 I spotted another shot of the jukebox just before Maddy enters the diner. It might be a slightly clearer shot of the 3 sleeves on the right, although the centre sleeve is still mostly covered.

Re: Episode 2

'Night Ed!' - it's been mentioned before that this might be Lynch. Certainly sounds like him. Another thing previously mentioned is the chronology of the Pete & Catherine bedroom scene - from their conversation, this should really have taken place the night before. It’s scripted to be the prior...

Re: Episode 4

Another winner, although surely Gerard could press charges for police harassment - having finally tracked down the man they want to question for no discernible reason, the police kick down his hotel room door and point guns at him... Cooper and the llama! Yes! Even the receptionist can be seen laugh...

Re: Episode 3

This is the first episode not to have Frost or Lynch writing or directing, yet feels very much like classic Peaks. After last episode's big cliffhanger, it's a very subdued ending this time which serves as a reminder that the town's guilt and grief are just as important as Who Killed Laura Palmer. A...

Re: Episode 2

Bit of a Rat Pack theme on the RR jukebox: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and possibly also Sammy Davis Jr (not 100% on this one - there's a note covering much of the sleeve) on display. Which one do you think is Dino? I definitely see ‘This Is Sinatra’ on the left, and next to that is Al Martino’s ‘Pa...

Re: Episode 1

A noticeable shift in tone watching this straight after the pilot. It's a lot warmer, the grief a lot less raw, the town more welcoming. A lot of the quotable dialogue shows up in this episode too. I was going to say it seemed a bit disappointing on this rewatch, but the entire episode seemed to fl...

Re: Episode 2

Between the rock-throwing scene and the repurposed red room sequence, I always feel that this episode is where first-time viewers either bow out or are definitely in for the duration (or in until the reveal of the killer anyway). No prizes for guessing which camp I fall into. Anyway, a couple of obs...

Re: The Pilot

Rewatched this today for the first time in a while and noticed a few things that may or may not have been mentioned before: The calendar at the saw mill suggests the date is Monday 20th Feb 1989. There again, previous weeks look like they've been struck out in a single line, in which case there's no...

Re: March 25th or March 27th (25 Years Later)...Or another date?

^^ Somewhat similar to the dubious arithmetic that turns Doppel Coop's comment about being 25 years Richard Horne's senior into proof that Richard is 25 years old. :D
