…….and let me first just say one thing.
Holy Douglas fir trees, Agent Cooper!
There are so many details to marvel at, that I’m not even going to attempt to put them into words. I will, however, wax rhapsodic over how the story evolved over these six episodes, going from disconnected, strange pieces to what appears to finally settle into some kind of pattern that I’m not entirely too sure of, yet.
There won’t be any spoilers in this post, mainly because instead of focusing on the show itself, I’d have been writing down what happened as it happened. That’s not conducive to enjoying the show. I expect that, when I have this season on Blu-Ray or DVD, I’ll be going over it again and again and again, to catch every little detail. Because that’s what the Pause and Search buttons on the remote are for.
“I’ll see you again in 25 years.”
So said Laura Palmer Dale Cooper towards the end of Episode 29 of the original series (22, if you’re going by season). It was worth the wait and I’m glad I was able to watch multiple episodes of Season Three. It would have been nerve-wracking waiting for it each week, trying to keep up with the details and the symbolism and what it all means.
Laura Palmer still seems to be the main thread that runs through the entire story of Twin Peaks and Dale Cooper is still trying to unravel it – or reweave it into a new pattern.
In any case, I have to wait on seeing the next few episodes. As nerve-wracking as that may be, I’m glad – being able to binge-watch several episodes actually helps keep the continuity flowing and I went from seeing multiple, seemingly unrelated episodes scatter different pieces around to watching as they started to coalesce into something concrete.
What that is, I’m not entirely certain. But I’m looking forward to finding out.
