    It’s a tough show to assess week to week.  It really is one of the least episodic TV shows ever.   Things are set up and not followed up for weeks.   I love the show but it’s hard to size up some of the episodes on their own.

    That said, this week was more focused than most.   Lots of interesting developments with both Coopers, and Hawk+Truman’s learning that good Coop was banished to the lodge.  MacLachlan has been so good.  Laura Dern is a prize as the ‘tough cookie’ Diane – that’s a character carrying a lot of expectations fron viewers that does not disappoint.    It’s a pleasant surprise that Naomi Watts’ role has turned out to be a significant one – who better to be shepherding the brain-dead Cooper?

    I’m beginning to doubt how many performers will be eligible for Supporting Actor/Actress, since the current rules for these categories indicate the performer must have more than 5% screen time. With 18 episodes at 1 hour each, someone would need to have at least 54 minutes total screen time to qualify. We still have quite a few episodes left to go, but I doubt anyone (other than MacLachlan, who would be lead anyways) has come close to 54 minutes.

    The last episode was the best. The FBI stuff is the best. I wonder if David Lynch can get an acting nomination if he qualifies for guest? Naomi Watts, Laura Dern, and Kyle Machlachlan are all coming for a those nominations

    Is this not going to be in limited series? It is a limited series and has been advertised as such.

    Watts has had decent screentime so far, I could see her making it

    That was something special right there.  How does one even elucidate what happened or how to feel about it?   But it was mesmerizing and unsettling like few things I have ever seen on television.  This show is in its own category.

    A guy I follow on Twitter tweeted this: “That was Twin Peaks’ “Here Was A Man”. The gold standard by which all future episodes of any television program ever will be judged.” I pretty much agree. Do we realize tv will never be better than this?

    I just watched the first 30 episodes along with the new 8 ones, and I seem to like season 2 a lot more than others. It had stumbles in the middle, but recovered nicely. I can’t imagine anyone being able to wait 25 years for that cliffhanger to be resolved. The new season is different, but I’m digging it. The only problem is I have to look for a recap everytime to figure out what just happened. The original series is fantastic, and I hope this one continues to impress.

    I wouldn’t agree with that. It may have been the most disturbing episode of tv I’ve ever seen, but it’s definitely not something that’s even for every twin peaks fan much less tv watchers in general.

    Extremely hard to say because it was so….indescribable? It was certainly extraordinary, perplexing, beautiful, terrifying…I don’t really think other Twin Peaks episodes (even the most surreal ones) can really be used as a basis for comparison. This week was the closest thing to an hour long nightmare I’ve ever seen. Can’t wait to see where Lynch and Frost take us next.
