I’m rewatching the two sessions of Twin Peaks on Netflix streaming, and it is just as good or better than when I left it 15 years ago. The show is horrifying, and razor sharp in its writing.
The show shaped a view of the world that I might not have noticed otherwise. Of course there’s a spirituality to the show that is neither here nor there.
But there’s an element of “real life” to the show. When I’m in public, I get excited when I see the same faces. I even name them or give them nicknames. And when I see them, I excitedly say, “There’s Crack Lady!” And there’s Asian hat guy!
While watching the show, you can’t help but say, “There’s log lady!” or “There’s Curtain Lady!” or “There’s the one-armed man!”
It’s a great show.
Here are a couple quotes that I noticed and wanted to write down for later:
“Harry, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it, don’t wait for it, just let it happen. Could be a new shirt at the men’s store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot, black coffee. Like this.” -Dale Cooper
And this one:
It’s usual in cases of strangulation for the victim to void his bowels.
Let it be written, let it be said, I not only miss Dale Cooper, I miss practically every character on that old show.
