6:13 – Something to do with your heritage

First of all, to anyone who had been checking this on a regular basis who has somehow returned, apologies for the delay in updates. You'd have thought the COVID-19 lockdown would've allowed plenty of time for me to forge ahead with this - and you'd be right - but the will to do so has … Continue reading 6:13 – Something to do with your heritage

6:11 – Oh no

Far be it from me to question the decisions made by the BBFC here in the UK for rating films and television shows, but their track record with Twin Peaks is a little unusual.Consider Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, for example. Since its initial VHS release way-back-when, Fire Walk With Me has always been an 18 … Continue reading 6:11 – Oh no

6:10 – Tough dame

In spite of the defiantly - and unapologetically - male gaze that Lynch aims at his leading women, on balance his work stacks up as resolutely pro-female. Yes, he covets a 'sexy' image of womanhood, idolising the form and celebrating female sexuality, but he also allots women just as much agency as men. Throughout his … Continue reading 6:10 – Tough dame

6:9 – “Battling” Bud

[Apologies for the small delay between posts; a lot has been going on and now, suddenly, not much is going on at all. This might give me time to get back into a Between Two Dougies groove...] Where were we...? Ah, yes. Lucky 7 Insurance. With helpful prompts from Phil Bisby (Josh Fadem), Dougie (Kyle … Continue reading 6:9 – “Battling” Bud

6:8 – Ike ‘The Spike’ Stadtler

At a motel, a diminutive bald hit-man named Ike 'The Spike' Stadtler (Christophe Zajac-Denek) sits before a mirror rolling dice. On the desk in front of him is a bottle of Bulleit bourbon, a measure poured in a glass, a salt seller, a notebook and pencil, and the lethally sharp spiked instrument that evidently gives … Continue reading 6:8 – Ike ‘The Spike’ Stadtler

6:7 – Red square

A couple of short scenes worth dealing with in quick succession now. Firstly, back to Vegas, Mr Todd (Patrick Fleischer) receives a coded message on his laptop in the form of a red square. By now we've readily come to assume that this must be from Mr. C, who seems to have an array of … Continue reading 6:7 – Red square

6:6 – 324810-6

The next few scenes link together as one sequence. At the Double R diner, a woman named Miriam Sullivan (Sarah Jean Long) sits in a booth talking to Heidi (Andrea Hays) about cupcakes. The two women giggle together about deserts. Shelly (Mädchen Amick) chimes in that Miriam is one of their best pie customers (a … Continue reading 6:6 – 324810-6

6:5 – Carl Rodd

An establishing shot reveals a new location for the show; the 'NEW' Fat Trout Trailer Park. The 'old' Fat Trout Trailer Park was situated in Deer Meadow where Teresa Banks was murdered in 1988. Indeed, Teresa Banks lived at the Far Trout Trailer Park and it was the last place that Agent Chester Desmond was … Continue reading 6:5 – Carl Rodd

6:4 – The magician longs to see

Out at a sawmill (the lumber trade remains a prolific source of employment in the Pacific Northwest), Richard Horne (Eamon Farren) meets with Red (Balthazar Getty) - previously seen at the Roadhouse at the end of Part 2. They meet in a shed riddled with bullet holes, the locale evoking a mix of the grim … Continue reading 6:4 – The magician longs to see

6:3 – No Gene Kelly

Cut to FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield (Miguel Ferrer) driving through pouring rain at night. He is in an inner city area. He thanks Gordon Cole (David Lynch) sarcastically, given that he has to endure evident discomfort while the deputy director is at home or in bed somewhere. Cole, it transpires, is on the phone and … Continue reading 6:3 – No Gene Kelly
