Disclaimer… after watching this for the second time on a better setup (audio wise) there are some things/details that we totally missed in our initial reactions. We’ll get it right and go deeper in the actual episodes. So just be aware of that. The evolution of the arm and how it relates to the hokey pokey among other things (a potential James and Shelley side plot) in our Part 2 Reactcast. Enjoy.
So we'll be doing a couple of different things with Season 3. Here is the first in our "React" series. It's exactly what it sounds like. Brian and Da Professa give their initial reactions and thoughts (no notes, no fidelity, no theories, just raw emotion) about each episode immediatly after they watch it. Later on chris and/or MlFotos will be involved in more formal shows (planing to do 2 parts at a time). These episodes will work more like our episodes in the past with recaps, specific questions, thought out (to some extent) theories, etc. However, the actual dates/times of release may vary depending on everyone's schedule.
In this react podcast Brian and Da Professa talk Part 1. The majority of this installment was located outside of Twin Peaks. The horizons are expanding and we now find ourselves in South Dakota where history is repeating itself with some gruesome twists. Meanwhile in New York we have ourselves a brand new box mystery. WOLF.
On this episode MlFotos and Da Professa join Brian to discuss the polarizing 1992 film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me directed by David Lynch.
It is highly recommended that you listen to this podcast soon after you watch the film (within a week or so). We do not recap anything. The first half of the show focuses on critical review and the second half on analysis, mythology, putting pieces together, and theorizing about how FWWM will factor in to season 3. We briefly talk about the missing pieces but nothing formal.
On this weeks episode Brian sits down with Da Professa for a Twin Peaks Talk. First half of the show focuses on Lynch and some overarching thoughts on Twin Peaks along with the top 5 love em and hate em lists. Then in the second half the duo compare the original script of the finale to what was aired on TV. And finally a little (or a lot) of what we like to call LODGE TALK.
On this special episode Brian sits down to talk Twin Peaks with Mitch Franklin. Mitch has watched the series right along with the guys so it makes sense to bring him in to get some fresh takes and perspectives. We also get his top 5 love em and hate em. Next week Brian sits down with da professa for some (at least for our show) deeper analysis (lodge talk) and the finale script comparison.
On this weeks episode annie, whose only been on screen for 15 minutes, is crowned Miss Twin Peaks, Windom Earle takes her, and that's pretty much all that happens. brian and chris unpack a somewhat lackluster episode considering what comes before and what's about to come. Speaking of (sic) cooper and annie did the nasty in one of the most awkward sex scenes of all time. Thank god for Nadine, Pinkle, Big D, and Mayor Milford without them I'm not sure we could have got through this one. We also learn that if you want in with the Log Lady you best get in with the log first.
In other news chris went deep sea fishing.
Miss Twin Peak Talk Starts at 55:40
And then there were 3. On this weeks epsidoe the boys talk Twin Peaks Season 2 Episode 20 The Path to the Black Lodge. Without a doubt this is one of our favorite episodes. Pete sees and talks to Josie in the Wood, Windom Earle and Leo play dress up, and Briggsy manages to get his ass abducted for a second time. Oh yeah and it looks like a portal to hell has opened up in the Twin Peaks woods so there's that. Brace yourselves because when Venus and Saturn meet there's no telling just how SHOOK you'll be.
The Path to the Black Lodge Banter begins at the 56:00 mark. We had some rat business we had to cover at the top of the show.
On this weeks episode the boys talk Twin Peaks Season 2 Episode 19 Variations on Relations. It's hard for this episode not to conjure up a plethora of strong emotions. Gordon Cole kisses Shelly (TRIGGER WARNING) in front of the Bobcat, Big Dick hosts a wine tasting gala, and Windom Earle puts a "heavy metal man" in a giant paper mache pawn only to kill him with a crossbow. Oh yeah and Snake manages to elicit a Chris Franklin trademarked WHOAH out of Execuite Assistant Bob Briggs when talking about Nadine Hurley's sexual prowess.
Variations on Relations Spiel Begins at 37:19
