Lost & Found: And The Winner Is....



Click here to be taken to the full article, which gives some unsolicited advice on how to watch Twin Peaks, talks a bit about what's interesting to me about it, and generally rambles on for no discernable reason (an aspect I should look into copyrighting, since I'm so darned fond of it, apparently).

I'll be watching the pilot episode tonight. Check in tomorrow for the InstaReaction!

UPDATE: No Instareaction today, obviously. No time to watch last night (sadface). I've seen a couple of folks on Chud complain that the pilot episode is "slow" and "boring." I disagree, but I think that's a valid subjective reaction, especially because the pilot is intentionally paced as a kind of requiem. If you've never watched Twin Peaks before, let me suggest that you approach it the way you would an older film.

  1. Awesome!! Since I am one who has never seen this show, I am excited to watch for the first time with all of you. I appreciate the "No Spoiler" rule as well. Not sure how that will work though, as this is a re-watch column.

  2. There are only two real spoilers for this show - the identity of the killer and the final fate of one of the characters. Neither spoiler will "ruin" the show, but it'll be better for you if you don't know them going in.

    Discussing the show while omitting these details is going to be very easy, actually.

    Glad you'll be watching along with me, D. I highly recommend reading my brief suggestions on how to watch Twin Peaks. The article should be up on Chud. by early afternoon.

  3. Oh, and I sort of can't wait for your reaction(s). I genuinely LOVE this show (the first season, anyway - I've never seen Season 2 all the way through) and I'm looking forward to your thoughts.

  4. Great news! I look forward to the "How To's" Chud post. The one question I do have is, how can I get the Pilot episode? The online series seems to not include this.

  5. OK. Ignore my last post. I found it on Netflix, but its not on Instant Watch :(

    I guess I will have to actually wait for the discs to come in the mail. Dammit, what did we ever do before the digital streaming age? Better yet, what did we do before video rental all together? Ok, I do not want to show my true age, because I remember before Cable and VCRs. Ugh.

  6. I'm glad this one won, I'm really excited to watch it. I know almost nothing substantial about Twin Peaks, so it'll be fun to go into it with a blank slate. Judging by your initial writeup, I think I'll like it a lot.

    I might try to write up a bit about each episode. I'm not sure I'll make it in time for the pilot, but when I do start I'll put it up at allshallbewellandallshallbewell.blogspot.com

    I've never done any kind of writing about television though, so everyone consider themselves forewarned (eeek).

  7. I would be interested Katie. I like seeing others' thoughts about what I am watching and reading.

    Morse - I am still waiting for my Pilot disc to arrive so I may not be back to read until I get it. :(

  8. No worries, D. I wasn't able to watch last night, so you'll be right in line with me by the time you get your disc.

  9. Nobody wants to play "Pass the Sentence" with me :(

    I get bored at work sometimes.
