having had a week to reflect on it (and one rewatch) i think my favorite overall is the Sonny Jim in 7th Heaven (or as Cooper repeats it back, "Seven heaven" - a clue, as in ??????? Heaven perhaps?). very strong scene with a perfect Lynchian atmosphere, complete with the eerie yet beautiful rendition of the Swan Lake song produced by either Lynch, Badalamenti or Hurley. the image of Sonny Jim having the time of his life while that spotlight searches for him and Janey-E and Dougie watches him as the proud parents they are (haha)
overall, the consensus seems to be that episode 13 was a slamdunk while 12 was a dissapointment.. i personally think 12 was a really strong part that demanded at least one rewatch while this part felt a little stale at times. in about 12 hours i will once again be in 7 Heaven!
The conga line at Lucky 7 insurance. Honestly, I enjoy this Las Vegas plotline so much that I just got overjoyed when it opened with the statue.
I thought 12 was a weak part that improved with each rewatch (I rewatched it once, then rewatched it with a friend last Saturday) and that this was a very strong one. It seems like since Ep 9 we've been alternating good and bad feelings on the evens and odds. But while I've avoided spoilers, I keep seeing positive statements from the Germans about 14 so maybe the pattern's broken.
I may be mistaken but the Swan Lake music sounds very much like the radically abbreviated version you get from those cheap Chinese-made music boxes you can buy from anywhere online. I have one that I bought for some media experiments, and it sounds virtually identical.
Just out of interest, did anyone slow down the music from that conga line scene yet? I would be interested to hear it. (And to the guys in the profoundly disappointed thread: no, not because I think it will mean
anything; simply because I'm a freak who likes listening to modulated, processed and warpy stuff, especially if it amplifies the whole Twin Peaks experience).
