I believe this was from the Sam Esmail interview: https://m.soundcloud.com/thetalkhouse/esmail-frost-320
Don’t have a timestamp, unfortunately. I think he actually says the name translates to “Dead Man’s Passage,” but he can’t remember the Spanish.
BTW, does anyone who’s visited the FWWM Fat Trout location know if that pole actually has those numbers on it, or were they added for the shoot? I think I recall reading somewhere that they were put up just for the shoot, but I can’t remember where.
No, that's cool, don't worry about the timestamp...that's one interview that I didn't listen to, so it will be a treat later! I just got done telling some friends about Sam Esmail's thoughts on the show - how he was on a couple year-end podcasts jovially but seriously calling out the others on the podcasts if they didn't have Twin Peaks number one - so this is ironic. I had also watched Amazon Prime's Homecoming, which Esmail directed in its entirety (he didn't write it, though). I was curious is if would bear any of Peaks influence, and I felt it did in a couple small ways. First, in the Lynch ripping sound/Deming camera shaky fissure in one particular scene, which could have come from any number of Lynch projects, of course. But secondly, the credits sequences capture stillness and movement in a way that was so distinct to The Return. It has that distinct look and sound and uncanny feel and tone in each credits sequence.
