  • I just watched it recently too! I didn’t get a chance to watch the movie because it’s not streaming on Netflix. After a visit to Snoqualmie falls where the show takes place, I was interested to learn more about it, though it had been in my queue for a few years. I had seen the Psych episode “Dual Spires” before so I knew a little about the show, but it was not enough to prepare me for what I actually watched! I’m not really even sure if I liked it or not, but it was enough to keep me interested and start to sort of care for the characters and their well being. It’s sort of a weird show, which I normally like, but it’s a weird that I’m not used to. I love Supernatural, Buffy, Charmed, and Eureka, so when they bring up the ideas of the “Black Lodge” and “White lodge” I’m thinking, okay, makes sense… I guess. other dimensional magic or something, sure. But in the series it was never fully explained for me, so I still don’t know what that was all about. The last episode was almost TOO much weird, lol. Overall I was glad I watched it so I can get the references.

    • Did you watch both seasons? I haven’t seen season 2 yet, but I feel exactly how you do. Not exactly sure.

      • Yep, I watched both seasons. It was enjoyable in the way that it kept me watching because I wanted to know what happened, lol. But the last episode ended on such a cliffhanger that now I really need to watch the movie! I tell you what though, if you like Psych, you should watch that episode when you finish as much Twin Peaks as you can handle. It makes it all better! :)

      • Small warning, though; the movie is a prequel, and will in no way tell you what comes after the last episode :P Hopefully the new series will clear things a little up though, but knowing Lynch and Frost, they will probably just end the new series as open as they did the old one, and leave you with new questions instead.

  • I’m halfway through the podcast right now, and I’m finding your commentary so interesting. The show came out when I was in high school and I watched the whole thing as it came out. It was definitely otherworldly / out of time feeling when it came out. Not a case of it just feeling outdated because you’re seeing it in the present and it was made a while back. The contrast between teenagers who look and act almost like they’re from the 50’s, and sometimes an even artificial acting style, was done very deliberately. It’s in such stark contrast to what we learn while watching about the hardcore lifestyle undercurrent of the town and the evil forces at work. The smoking, the diner, it’s all part of that throwback to make you feel like you’ve stumbled into an alternate world.

    • Hi Skye!! Thanks so much for listening :)
      That’s so cool that you watched it when it came out. Def feels like an alternate world. Because it is set in the real world though the lines are blurred and it makes me uncomfortable, probably on purpose.
