;D :D ;D

But seriously, locust and frog...a biblical reference? The bomb unleashed a plague on earth, literally infecting people?

Sarge

The theory going around is that the girl is Sarah Palmer, and the frog.....is Laura (who's soul was in the orb thing)

(afterall, that thing fell from the sky, and Laura's soul was sent to earth......)

This is more backstory of the black lodge people  :o

2nd time watching it and it seems far more coherent to me. It's just the shock of not knowing: what you're seeing, what's going to happen and why it's happening for the first time.

Still, quite clearly there are new things introduced, like The Giants lady-friend, the woodsman (blackened hobos) and such, that we have very limited knowledge of currently (though the are clearly brought on by "The Mother", just like Bob)

Only David Lynch could bring *that* to television.

The theory going around is that the girl is Sarah Palmer

Might go some way to explaining Sarah's occasional psychic visions.

Looks like the ratings suck. Maybe they'll cancel it?   >:D 0:)

Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

I don't think broadcast ratings have quite as much power for a VOD/streaming company as they do for a traditional broadcaster, not to mention on demand services have become very popular and a lot less people watch broadcast television now compared with ten years ago, so ratings for pretty much everything have dropped. Showtime's PR has also been vocal about Twin Peaks bringing a lot of new subscribers to their online service, so I imagine they're quite happy to let things play out as they are.

The theory going around is that the girl is Sarah Palmer, and the frog.....is Laura (who's soul was in the orb thing)

Except Laura was produced by the Giant in, presumably, the White Lodge (and therefore a source of good) and the egg that produced the locust/frog was spewed out along with Bob by the Experiment (Mother?), a source of evil. How can the orb and the egg both be Laura? That makes no sense (I'm disregarding what could be Lynchian sense  ;D ;) ).

Okay, thinking about it a bit more, Laura was the quintessential good/bad girl. Still, I'm having trouble believing that insect/frog creature being proto-Laura.

Yep, episode 8 seems to have gotten quite a few people interested in Penderecki  ;D

Episode 9 is a really nice contrast with 8. I also feel like the two-week break really worked for these two, it was tense waiting to see how they were going to follow 8 up, but they've come back with something very close in feel to classic Peaks, at least in the sense of how it balances darkness with goofy humour and idiosyncratic asides.

In other words "It's A Fucking Morgue!!!"



Diane couldn't be more perfect, I've always loved Laura Dern and not because of how attractive she is but every character she plays is so distinctly different, lots of respect there!  ;D

Episode 10  :o today!

Haven't seen it yet (It's already started airing I think) but I can't believe we're now just passed half way!  ???
I can't wait to see where Lynch takes this in the next 9? 10? hours  ;)

Can someone kill Richard Horne already? He infuriates me more than even Frank Booth, such an asshole.

Maybe evil coop can kill Richard in the casino, where Dougie finally wakes up as normal Coop?

Good to see Albert happy with the coroner lady, I wouldn't mind her myself  ;)

Candy? what's with her?

The Dougie/Janey-E sex scene was incredible, funniest sex scene I've ever seen  :laugh:

Johnny Horne and the creepy toy thing

Diane and mexico?

Gordon's Laura Palmer flashback thing

More Jacoby and seems like Nadine seems to be in a relationship with him? or really, really, really like him?  ???

Another Log lady epiphany, about Electricity.



This keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Now I'm also confused to whether I want normal Coop back or not, Dougie and Janey-E are so loveable  :-*

Now that was more like it. Probably the most hilarious episode yet.

And Del Rio singing at the end.. chills.
