1) This is still one of the best shows ever made and probably the biggest leap in television history for a dramatic series. It's often forgotten just how consistently great it was from beginning to end, aside from some really terrible subplots near the end of Season 2. I really can't stand the "it jumped the shark" crowd when the second season up until the murderer reveal is clearly just as strong as the first batch and the main storyline after that only gets more intriguing with the larger introduction of the sci-fi element.

2) Audrey Horne is the hottest character in television history.

3) I've dreamt of this ever since finishing the series (and Fire Walk With Me) way back in 2006. I always knew it would eventually happen.

4) Don't worry about Kyle's scheduling issues with Agents of Shield. That show reeks of the usual "big in the first season because of name brand recognition, canceled by the end of season two" smell. Its numbers have consistently dropped from the premiere last fall and it will likely be wrapped up by this spring.

there is a six degrees of U2 associated with Twin Peaks

David Lynch, the big cheese, the head honcho in charge of everything used Lykke Li as a female vocalist on "Im Waiting Here"

Lykke Li provides guest vocals for The Troubles

***That is all***

There's also how Bono fell asleep while listening to the "Blue Velvet" soundtrack and woke up to write She's A Mystery To Me.

Six degrees of U2 association with Twin Peaks (as opposed to 2):

1) U2 appeared on the television show Conan O'Brien which is hosted by Conan O'Brien, who was a writer for...
2) The Simpsons, one prominent voice actor of which is Hank Azaria, who appeared on the television show...
3) Huff with Oliver Platt, who appeared in the film...
4) Flatliners with Keifer Sutherland who starred on the show...
5) 24, which featured the guest actor Dennis Hopper in season one. Dennis Hopper, was the star of the film...
6) Blue Velvet, which was directed by...David Lynch.

Three steps:

1. Bono helped write the screenplay for Million Dollar Hotel, which was directed by Wim Wenders.

2. Wim Wenders directed Paris, Texas, starring Harry Dean Stanton.

3. Harry Dean Stanton had a significant role in The Straight Story, which was directed by David Lynch.

1. David Lynch is the cousin of Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.

2. Marshawn Lynch is coached by Pete Carroll, who is a 9/11 truther.

3. Is Bono okay?

I've been rewatching this for the last few days, on the second episode of Season 2 now. Haven't seen it in like 20 years.

I think BigMacPhisto is right; Audrey Horne may very well be the hottest character ever. Dear lord.

Some of the humor in TP really doesn't work for me. Much of it does, but I find the Log Lady to just be completely boring and not funny at all.

The actor who plays Bobby is pretty awful.

None of the characters who are supposed to be in high school come close to pulling off someone that young.

I really miss the Invitation to Love show-within-the-show gag in Season 2. Either way, too-old high schoolers fits within the soap opera milieu of the show and worked to its advantage. Bobby makes a big leap in S2 to not being annoying and James is just... oh boy.

What's your opinion on Fire Walk with Me? Will you be revisiting that as well?

I think it's an indulgent wank, and having a bunch of cool scenes doesn't equal a good film. But I feel the same way about Lost Highway. Mulholland Dr, on the other hand, rises above that to become something truly great.

I think FWWM actually weakened the property more than elevated it. And I know several fans of the show who don't care for it.

FWWM was nearly unwatchable for me. I didn't even get the camp value out of it that Dune possessed. Just a dull, violent, charmless mess that added little to nothing of value to the storyline.

The soundtrack was killer at least.

The Alamo recently did a Lynch retro over the course of two months, and man, I was really taken by Fire Walk with Me. Watched it twice, I think it may be his masterpiece. Surprisingly, a lot of that audience felt similarly -- time may be beginning to vindicate it. The way that it takes the mythology of the series, particularly the "possession" of Leland by BOB and turns it into a more profoundly unsettling narrative, is Lynch at his most noir. The movie opens with an axe through a television for crying out loud. There's too much tenderness and affection for Laura that keeps it from being wholly mean-spirited, even as depraved as the Pink Room, BOB/Leland encounter, and final murder scenes get. That shit is harrowing, but it's ultimately transcendent.

Lost Highway has the marks of a transition film. The bits where Pullman gets lost in the darkness of his own apartment turn up again in a more potent form in Inland Empire.

I was reading this part-bio/part-film analysis text Beautiful Dark during most of that Lynch series and it's fantastic. If you would like a .pdf, let me know.

I will always support Lost Highway. It had a profound immediate effect on me and I've been wanting to give it a rewatch after indulging in fan theories after the first viewing.

Patricia Arquette walking out of the car to Lou Reed's "This Magic Moment" must've given Wes Anderson a boner.

But really Laz, I'd recommend giving FWWM another shot. Same with Inland Empire; I thought it covered similar ground to Mulholland Dr. and discounted it at first. It's a fucking trip.

My Lynch Power Rankings (not having seen The Straight Story):

1. Inland Empire
2. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me
3. Mulholland Dr.
4. Blue Velvet
5. Wild at Heart
6. Eraserhead
7. The Twin Peaks pilot
8. The Elephant Man
9. Lost Highway
10. Dune

And I still love Dune.
