  1. Yikes! 1 error: The letter found under Laura’s fingernail is an “R”, not a “J”.

  3. Don’t think you need to worry about spoilers here. I haven’t listened yet but will do so on the morning commute out to Chiba. I’m looking forward to hearing your impressions of this special moment in television history.

    TP has been much on my mind of late as part of my animated GIF research project. I’ve actually been talking about the very topic in PFD02.

  4. Just listened to your awesome recording on the train ride out to Chiba. Well done Mke. I would like to hear more about your weird-o-meter. Maybe you could mention what scenes and moments bury the needle as you watch.

    And a couple of minor corrections. Big Ed is the uncle of James not his father. He is having an affair with Norma Jennings not Audrey Horne.

    Jack Nance probably was not in Deadwood as he died in 1996. He did however appear in Blue Velvet and he played Henry Spencer in Eraserhead.

    I am looking forward to your next installment!!

  5. Thanks Scottio! It was very difficult trying to recall the jampacked first episode of the top of my head. Please feel free to correct me as I go on. About to watch the second episode.

  6. I printed out the cast list for Twin Peaks. There are so many characters, I’m having a hard time keeping up with who’s who. Your review is so very helpful. This is great 🙂 Very entertaining. Thank you 🙂 This is my first time watching the series as well. Looking forward to future episodes 🙂

  8. Thanks Carrie! I’m working on another episode; I got Jessica into the show so she has to catch up and then I’ll start recording more episodes.
