Twin Peaks Episode 1 & 2 – My Thoughts

Posted on May 25, 2017 in

I took a lot of notes watching the first two episodes of the new season of Twin Peaks. Unfortunately, my cat was sitting on my notebook so I didn’t take any notes for episodes 3 and 4. Regardless, here is basically my stream of consciousness as I was watching:

    • It’s the theme song!! Not sold on visuals yet, but I’ve missed this song.
    • I’m not sure what’s going on in this weird studio.
    • They’re certainly going for atmosphere over plot here. That’s cool and all, but I’m anxious to catch up with my favorites.
    • I honestly have no idea what’s going on.
    • The security guard at this weird box place looks like Jax from Vanderpump Rules. Right???
    • The Great Northern! I hope we see more Ashley Judd.
    • Lucy! She’s as strange as always, which is nice.
    • I’m really into the music. It’s Trent Reznor-ish. Did he do this?
    • Not a fan of this Dale’s long hair.
    • Tracy kinda needs to get a life, because this guy seems sort of like a weirdo.
    • Are there subliminal flashes of something in this show for everybody? Or is it just my computer?
    • Wow, they’re taking full advantage of the ability to show nudity on Showtime. Good call!
    • What’s in the box? What’s in the box?

  • Goodbye to Tracy and unnamed guy, I guess.
  • So far this doesn’t feel as much like Twin Peaks as it does Mulholland Drive. I don’t hate it.
  • I’ve jumped a couple times, not going to lie.
  • That was an interesting dead body.
  • The Log Lady!! Hawk! A message from the log! I love this.
  • I didn’t realize Shaggy was old enough to be the principal of a school, but I mean, I guess he is.
  • It was definitely the wife.
  • Jail is scary!
  • I guess it doesn’t matter that it’s the wife.
  • “I don’t need anything. I want.” Hmm. Interesting.
  • The Log Lady again! Is Hawk going to save Dale? Please do. I really like what they’ve given him so far this season.
  • This may be the longest two hours of confusion in my life, but the shots are gorgeous.
  • The Black Lodge is so awkward and I feel awkward watching it alone. But I love it.
  • The lingering shots on emptiness really creep me out.
  • Laura! I really hope they have a third role for Sheryl Lee to play.
  • Sheryl Lee looks great, and her smile hasn’t changed.
  • Okay, now something terrible is happening.
  • The arm is so Eraserhead-ish. I don’t want to look at it.
  • Now there is some face mushing and some lightning.
  • It feels weird to see Kyle MacLachlan in bed with a woman like this. He’s so not threatening.
  • Even Evil Dale can’t help but carry a tape recorder around.
  • There is a lot of head shooting so far.
  • No there’s another lady next door. Interesting.
  • “Oh, you’re nice and wet,” is going to haunt me until the day I die.
  • With all those curtains, I would get very confused in the Black Lodge.
  • 20 minutes left. Am I going to get to see Audrey??
  • Ray Wise looks pretty good!
  • So like, has Dale just been sitting on a couch for 25 years?
  • The Palmer house! And mountain lions killing things on TV.
  • I think Grace Zabriskie is so underrated.
  • The Bang Bang Bar is hopping. I’m into the music.
  • Ugh, we’re seeing James before we’re seeing Audrey?
  • Shelly Johnson is definitely one of my favorites. I’d like to see more of her in this.
  • So James appears into Jessica Szohr, but Shelly is into James and also another guy?
  • This episode was dedicated in memory of Catherine Coulson and Frank Silva. Pretty cool.

Ultimately, there was a lot missing that I wanted to see, but I have faith that it will happen eventually. I’m definitely ready to see some more familiar faces and also to see WTF is happening to Dale Cooper. There really isn’t enough for me to write a cohesive piece about it, so I’m just going to leave this here for now.
