Just finished 4.
Love "Dougie"/Dale. Casino scenes are wonderful, ditto Naomi Watts scenes.
Great to see Bobby! The scene with Laura's picture fits his character well.
Was Lucy this OTT/silly in the original version? Fainting/failing to grasp the concept of cellphones. She seems much more comical/sitcom-y than ever before.
Not sure what to think of Andy and Lucy's son. Wally? But found it funny/touching the way they were both looking at him with such obvious love and pride.
Forster is great as the new sheriff, but I miss Ontkean.
Great to see Denise!
Loved the scene with Bad Coop, Albert, and Cole at the jail.
This episode seems to be bringing things together a lot and advancing the plot.
Loved the thumbs up bits.
As much as I would like to see more TP scenes, it almost feels like each one is a reward, that we are slowly being given more and more glimpses of the town - and our favourite old characters - as the series (and Coop) wind their way back there. (I feel like this structure was the original intention behind FWWM before so many scenes were cut.)
Have warmed to the show a lot by now. It's not the continuation I would have imagined - and a big part of me does still wish it was more like the old series - but it's grown on me a lot and I have great appreciation for it as it's own thing now. I still kind of think of it as "The David Lynch Show" more than "Twin Peaks" - and still feel this is Lynch almost making the "Mulholland Drive" TV show he never got to make, while also continuing "Twin Peaks", making his own new experimental movie, and referencing and paying homage to his own entire back catalogue. (But with this episode it's gradually beginning to feel more and more like "Twin Peaks".)
Will have to rewatch all of these episodes.
You know, it does feel more like an 18-hour movie (as David Lynch said) than an episodic TV show. So I wonder why he insisted on it being released weekly? That worked with the old series, which followed a soapy and episodic structure, complete with "next on" and "previously on" teasers. But this isn't at all like that. While getting all the episodes at once might have been overwhelming, I think it would have been better if this had all been released at once. Each episode flows into the next like a movie. Apart from the closing scenes of bands in the bar, it does not feel especially episodic, so I think an all-at-once release would have been better. Overall - am glad they released these two episodes along with the first two (1 & 2 on their own would have left an entirely different impression, probably not so good a one), but I think they should have uploaded the whole show at once.
