Michael Cera's scene was great. As was Coop getting used to life in his new home with Naomi Watts.

The show hit the ground running, and has been great in terms of not dipping quality, and varying its style so much episode to episode.

I don't know, it seemed straight out of inland empire to me. (and I absolutely loved it.)

Right on the money. Each episode has felt very unique (I still think the 3rd episode is the best so far) but the exciting thing is that they're all leading to the same place.

Oh and while Michael Cera's scene dragged on a bit, I'll take it over half of season 2 any day.

David Duchovny showing up just made my whole day.

Episode 3 was WTF in terms of nightmare fuel.

Epidose 4 was WTF in terms of LOL I LOVE IT.

Although I still find Lucy and Andy to be completely irritating.

I'm still on my first run through Season 2 (about two thirds of the way there) and my solution to this point has been skipping anything to do with James, Andy/Lucy/Dick, and Nadine.

That's correct, and soon you'll do the same with the Andrew Packard storyline.

I was told a long time ago, and I'm not entirely sure if its validity, that the network forced them to reveal Laura's killer earlier than they wanted and that they planned on dragging it out until the end of the season. Then they would have made season 3 more about Wyndham Earle. I've never been able to find documentation on it. Plus, Lynch and Frost stepped away to work on other projects.

This is why I'm so excited for the rest of this season. Lynch and Frost wrote/directed each episode.

That's not saying much.

Eh, having scenes drag out for comedy's sake has always been part of the show...such as Lynch's long scene with a slow old man to start Season 2 and his long scene with a slow old man at the end of Season 2. It's funny. And the Cera shit was gold because it was a lot of nice absurdist humor.

Having done a massive rewatch starting a few weeks before the new series premiered, I definitely didn't even like the Windom Earle stuff the second time around as it all felt rather cartoony. Basically, Season 2 is just as strong as the first through the reveal and death of Laura's killer...then it only really picks up with the still phenomenal season finale (arguably the show's best episode) and the handful of story elements before that leading up to the Black Lodge (such as the cave stuff).

Everything else from the second half of Season 2 can be thrown into the trash, really, but it was still done a cut above anything else on television at the time so I don't really get why people in love with the show's artistry decided to bail. I will say that another reason that I don't buy the "last third of Season 2 returning to form" argument is that while the episodes might not have the embarrassing sub-plots that came in the middle of the season, they're actually on a lower level overall in terms of direction and technical craft compared to those, making them just as unrewarding for me.

Overall, the back half of Season 2 doesn't matter at this point. The show gave us about 20 straight hours of the best television ever made and now we're getting 18 more.
