Twin Peaks S3E16: "No Knock, No Doorbell"
-What "special effect" did they use to kill Richard? A f*cking strobe light at his feet? If that was a joke it's not a great one. I guess anyone could have guessed at this point who Richard's father was too. At least the lead-up to it was pretty nice dark stuff. More of that please, only two episodes left to go!
-LOL at Jerry Horne and his binoculars that are bigger than David Patrick Kelley's head. What does he say about Richard? "Bad...bad...bad!" something like that. Funniest DPK line since "Warriors, come out to play!!"
-Alright, Tim Roth and Jennifer Jason Leigh eat it in a shootout with a Russian gangster? How 2017-relevant (ditto, I guess, for Diane's rape story....err, sorry.) I guess I can get behind that? Honestly, the most amusing part of it was the three girls-in-pink showing up with the Mitchums, not to mention how brain-dead-serene they look in the car.
-Good Cooper seems to come back so abruptly that that whole part of the show played like a big gag, right down to "Falling" turning up on the soundtrack.
-Deadly text message!! Has Lynch watched Marble Hornets Entry #26?
-So Diane mentions the gas station, that'd be the one we saw after the nuke blast in episode 8 and the one where Philip Jeffries was, that's a link to BOB and MIKE working in a convenience store? Right? Wrong? Eh?
-I'm such a perv. I spotted Diane's spanx when they blew her away. Gross.
-More bad FX when Diane was in the red room. Hey, don't tell me Lynch didn't have the money to do better--that episode 8 nuke sequence was great!!!
-Solo Eddie Vedder with an acoustic guitar? Get me the Dramamine. Worst musical performance on the show easily, and I'm not forgetting we had to listen to James Hurley.
-"Audrey's Dance." You know, I've queued up the TP soundtrack a billion times just to listen to the first two tracks and always stop at the beginning of the third and it's "Audrey's Dance." Friggg. Her scene prior to that isn't so good, though.
-So Audrey's still in a hospital or something, then? Someone here mentioned that Eddie Vedder as a musical guest makes sense for someone who's been in a coma since 1991. Hey, whatever, as long as it means she's gone! The weakest bring-back of a character from the old TP world, for sure.
-Wait, so that was scorched engine oil coming out of the girlboy's mouth in the honking car in that one episode?
-If it sounds like I hate this episode, I didn't. It's actually one of the better ones. Remember, I like to nitpick. Also quite a bit of it had an X-Files feel to it.
NP: Jethro Tull - "Sealion" (one of the most annoying songs they ever did)
