7 Down, 7 hours of brilliance.
I still have nothing but minor quibbles and who gives a shit about minor quibbles. Twin Peaks is back, and yes I know it's too early to say this, but whatever; it's better than it was a quarter of a century ago. Yes, I went there!!!!
The most beautiful thing about this new season is that is slowly crawls into your mind and even heart, and places itself there as firmly as possible. The more complete the overall picture gets, the better the impressions of the show are. I love that each epsisode is just a piece of a puzzle which is being slowly assembled, becoming more wonderful with each new addition. That last episode definitely felt the most TwinPeaks-ian. Can't fucking wait for the next one.

Just finished episode 5. Had to stay away during some time due to work, but I expect to catch up with the new season and see all the new episodes (6, 7 and 8) this week. Meanwhile, I'll try my best not to read the things you've been posting.
4. The two policemen finding the dead body inside the apartment (Ep.1) 5. Kid leaving his house to check the bomb in Cooper's car (Ep. 5)
Number 1 is just brilliant, not only the idea but the way how it was executed. Numbers 2 and 3 are two of the most visually stunning things I've ever seen. Numbers 4 and 5 are among the most suspenseful sequences I've seen, not even Hitchcock would do better.
I'm loving it so far, and I'm also really curious to see where all this is going. Can't wait to see Laura Dern and Sherilyn Fenn too.
Lynch went full-on Eraserhead with tonight’s episode. Some of the most nightmarish imagery I have ever seen played tonight. That atomic sequence was like the evil twin of Malick’s Lacrimosa; instead of the beginning of time, we were treated to a threnody of destruction. And while I had no idea how it tied into the story at hand (I half-expected the teenage boy to be Leland Palmer or something, and that BOB would somehow infect him then and there), I didn’t want it to end.
Some friends and I could say that this is Lynch's Out 1. Obvious points of comparison are Rivette, Kubrick and Malick, but there's definitely Ken Jacobs, Stan Brakhage, and Marianna Tcherkassky there too.
Many people whose opinions I respect have been a fan of it
Actually, wait a minute: what if the teenage girl is actually Sarah Palmer? The "jackrabbit bug" birthed out of the Laura orb would make sense going into her.
Nah, pretty sure that bug thing is BOB and the girl is his first host. That's why the weird hobo thing was helping the bug find someone sleeping through the poem on the radio. Plus someone on Reddit mentioned that the ages wouldn't line up anyway.
