I thought that Lynch didn't direct more in season 1 because of "WaH", but even without that, was he not planning to do more in S2? I guess he got disenchanted with the direction of the series, but I don't know why he didn't contribute more to try to right the ship.
Yeah, I have no idea actually. It surprised me too, I assumed he would automatically want to direct the premiere, since he did so with the pilot. Maybe he had planned, as with Season 1, to direct a pivotal episode, and leave the set-up to someone else -- as it was conceived and scripted (and it still is, at turns, in the final product) it was very expository, so maybe Lynch wanted to avoid that. Then again, though, when would that pivotal episode come? 'Coma,' which I think is a good episode, is meandering and there's nothing about it that feels as important as, say, S1E2.
Lynch might have something to say on all this in Lynch on Lynch, which for some reason I haven't read yet.
Recipe not my own. In a coffee cup. 3 TBS flour, 2 TBS sugar, 1.5 TBS cocoa powder, .25 TSP baking powder, pinch of salt. 3 TBS milk, 1.5 TBS vegetable oil, 1 TBS peanut butter. Add and mix each set. Microwave 1 minute 10 seconds. The cup will be hot.
