Sounds nasty. Hope she's better soon.

Re: Bad Karma

I had similar thoughts when the Manson allegations came out. To the above, I'd also add: Michael Massee fired the incorrectly-prepared prop gun on The Crow that killed Brandon Lee. Not his fault and a horrendous burden to have to live with. Twiggy Ramirez, who appears alongside Manson, was accused o...

Re: Episode 21

Still in the mid-season slump, although there are signs that the show might get back on track - both Thomas Eckhardt (the fire reflecting in his glasses is suitably ominous) and Windom Earle (wonderful introduction, although has Leo really spent a whole day wandering through the wood before finding ...

Re: Episode 20

After coming away from episode 19 thinking 'Laura Palmer died for *this*' I was pleasantly surprised to feel like things are getting back on track on this episode. It's not classic Peaks, but the good far outweighs the bad and the comedic scenes don't grate when used sparingly. A few thoughts and ob...

Re: Episode 19

Well, this seemed the least-essential episode so far. It's not without good bits - Ed & Norma, Dead Dog Farm, Cooper, Audrey & Denise and the Briggs family scene - but the balance is skewed to comedy that doesn't always work, wackiness and the Evelyn Marsh subplot with characters who don't h...

Re: Episode 18

Well, this felt like a big improvement on the previous episode - despite featuring arguably weaker lows (Little Nicky & Evelyn Marsh both make their first appearances here) the highs are higher and just, well, Peaksier. The opening shots of James on his bike were apparently filmed for the pilot....

Re: Episode 17

Easily the weakest episode on my rewatch so far, although it's not unenjoyable - it just lacks focus or any sense of what we're supposed to be invested in. The opening scene with Cooper and Sarah Palmer is actually really good, even if it reinforces the idea of Leland's innocence. Unfortunately what...

Re: Episode 16

I've seen this episode described as the last in the original series' imperial phase and also as the first episode in the season 2 slump. I can see both viewpoints while leaning towards the former myself. I remember it being a big hit with everyone I knew who watched the show at the time, although pe...

Re: Episode 15

A few thoughts on this latest rewatch... Opening shot of the Palmer house - it's a touch more secluded than the house used for FWWM/Return. Seems a bit less likely a neighbour would hear the attack on Maddy and call the police. Leland mentions dropping Maddy to the bus station, but in the previous e...

Re: Episode 14

Speaking of which... knowing what we now know about Bob, there isn't really any reason for Philip Gerard to collapse, is there? Yeah, this one of those cheats that bugs me on rewatches, even though Lynch gives the moment a terrific atmosphere (I love Ben purposefully chugging down the hall like a f...

Re: Episode 14

Well, that's about as good as a tv episode can get. I dread to think how many times I've watched this one over the years and it's lost none of its uneasy magic. That sense of the whole town experiencing the wrongness of the night but being too late to stop it is overwhelming. A few stray thoughts &a...

Re: Episode 11

Would the fight in the diner not wake Norma? I'm assuming the Jennings house is out the back of the diner - otherwise it seems a bit strange Hank would change into his pyjamas before leaving work. I assume Norma lived somewhere else and isn’t at a comfort level yet of allowing Hank to sleep in the ...

Re: Episode 13

Well, still no sign of the fabled Season 2 dip, even if the season so far seems a little less tightly structured than the first season (and there's also a sense they've run out of ideas for some of the characters - but for their names appearing on the opening credits, you'd be hard-pressed to guess ...

Re: Episode 12

Some thoughts on my latest rewatch: The note under Cooper's bed in this episode is addressed to 'My Special Agent'. The note beside the phone in Ep 8 is addressed to 'Agent Cooper' - are these meant to be the same note or is the 'Agent Cooper' note the 'Jack WIth One Eye' note from earlier in season...

Re: Episode 11

A few thoughts on the latest rewatch: On first viewing, I remember thinking the ceiling tile shot was going to be Ronette's POV from her hospital bed. Maddy seems to take Leland being arrested for murder in her stride. Louis at the Great Northern is annoying, and the set-up of the MT Wentz sub-plot ...
