Time for Cherry Pie and Coffee – PART 10

We sent Candie out to fetch our Part 10 episode, so naturally it’s a day late! After this brutal episode of Twin Peaks we discuss how the pendulum of violence swings from the distressing to the absurd. Perhaps one of the darkest hours of Twin Peaks yet focusing all too closely on the evil that men do. As the Log Lady says, now the circle is almost complete. Watch and listen to the dream of time and space.

Contains spoilers for Parts 1-10, Seasons 1 & 2, The Secret History of Twin Peaks and FWWM.

Time for Cherry Pie and Coffee – PART 8

It’s Part 8 of Twin Peaks The Return! Join us as we recap and discuss the latest episode, not only one of the most striking hours of Twin Peaks so far, but perhaps of modern television itself. We try to make sense of events that take us back to the origins of Killer BOB and the meeting place above the Convenience Store, interweaving Twin Peaks mythology from screen and page with the Manhattan Project, aliens and Kafka. We can’t promise any answers, only our accounts of what we saw.

NEXT TIME… Although Twin Peaks is taking a break next week, we’re not! We are teaming up with Lindsay and Aidan from Bickering Peaks for a special crossover episode: “Listening Post Alpha”. We’ll be talking about everything that has happened so far and where things might be going in the new season.

Time for Cherry Pie and Coffee – PARTS 3 & 4

Twin Peaks The Return is now 4 episodes in! Join us as we recap and discusss all the twists and turns in Parts 3 and 4. We’re also starting to formulate our thoughts about what might be going on. We’re already revisiting our earlier ideas, revising some and forgetting others (Richard Chamberlain, ahem). Theories abound about The Secret History of Twin Peaks and its mysterious dossier, non-linear storytelling, Hawk’s connection to the mission, gaming imagery, the glass box, and the blue rose. We’ve spent far too much time this week freeze-framing episodes and annotating the annotations in TSHOTP. It’s packed into a concise 2h40m and will likely all be proven nonsense by the next episode.

Time for Cherry Pie and Coffee – PARTS 1 & 2

Twin Peaks is officially back! Having watched The Return Parts 1 and 2, we sat down to record to our thoughts, feelings and theories whilst in the daze and wonder of experiencing our first new screen Peaks in a very long time. It was overwhelming and we ended up with this beast of an episode… At time of recording we still haven’t seen Parts 3 and 4 and are being very careful to avoid spoilers so in the next episode, we are almost likely to have been proven completely wrong about everything that we say here. We need coffee now. Contains spoilers for Parts 1 and 2.
