Wasn't too crazy about Frank and his Wife.
Jacoby's thing didn't do too much for me (nice to see Jerry again though, so, I think it's safe to assume he/Ben will reappear in some capacity, if they bothered to shoot that reaction shot).
I agree with what someone said about how there's a strange distance to the way the Twin Peaks stuff is shot (wide shots, lack of close-ups). I suggested somewhere that I wonder if it was just a time thing; lots of these actors are quite old, and also for stuff on location, they probably had a ton to squeeze in (they only shot there, what 3-4 weeks total?). Shooting in wides tends to be time efficient as you get a lot of coverage. But, it makes it feel a bit sterile.
I really wish they were doing two a week though. I like Dougie. But, it is like the waiter stuff dragged out over a few episodes. In binge, it'll play fine. But, I think at some point people's patience will wear thin. But, as someone else pointed out, once you set it up as being this much of a process for Coop to regain his identity/memories then, you can't really just have it *click* (otherwise you already passed by a few moments that could've serviced that; his first coffee, 'Agent', case files, etc.). It does feel like it's building though.
Perhaps 4 episodes all at once spoiled me a bit, haha.
Also, all this Jeffries stuff is interesting, wondering what's going on with that .. beeper? One worry I have though, is that if it is the case that Bowie was asked back, and wasn't able to shoot because he passed away, it is going to pull a bit of the air out of the storyline (either he's written out and we won't see him, or we'll have to see a recast for David Bowie, who is pretty one of a kind). It's actually hindering my enthusiasm just a tiny bit, because I really don't want to get my hopes up that they managed to film something with him. I'm pretty surprised as to just how important his character is. Before we knew anything about this season, I thought that we could reasonably expect some kind of reference to him, but mostly as a footnote (well, similar to how his scene is in FWWM is so small, self contained, but powerful).
Oh, also, it might've been that my stream skipped (CraveTV is .. brutal), but, the cuts in the kid/car/explosion scene were super super clunky to me. Kid's face/guy turns key/reaction of kid to explosion/burning car/the guys who were by the car (but didn't die) are already back in their car? Might have to rewatch, but, something about it felt really weird.
