2017, Analog

with season1 episode 4 aka episode 3 aka rest in pain

notes:

  • First mention of the bookhouse boys
  • Miguel ferrer is so good
  • First appearance of Laura Palmer lookalike cousin Madeline
  • first appearance of the soap opera within twin peaks on tv?

 

Previously on Twin Peaks: The Livedoodles:

3 aka episode 2 aka zen, or the skill to catch a killer

2 aka episode 1 aka traces to nowhere

1 pilot aka northwest passage

almost too engrossed

2017, Analog

To get much doodling in during episode 3 of season one of original twin peaks.

so good. So strange.

Notes

  • The baguette scene is so weird
  • Red and black and white again
  • Lynch so good at making us feel like voyeurs into these people’s personal lives
  • Agent dale cooper becoming more interesting all the time.

update: I’ve been reading the Wikipedia entries for every episode so far, but the entry for this episode is NOT spoiler free. I now know too much, unfortunately:(

twin peaks livedoodle

Analog, 2017

Season 1 episode 2, aka “Episode 1“, also known as “Traces to Nowhere

Notes

  • What’s up with him hanging upside down? What is that good for?
  • can’t get over agent cooper’s dialogue. So good.
  • I don’t remember this much black and white and red in the costumes and set design in the pilot

UPDATE: It wasn’t just my imagination. There was a lot of red in this episode. From the wikipedia entry for this episode:

“He (director Duwayne Dunham) also continued the use of a “warm” reddish tint to the footage, using soft coral filters and carefully selected props and costumes to obtain this coloring.[16] This tint was considered important enough that Lynch sent a representative to the network to ensure they understood it was deliberate and not a mistake, for fear that they might correct the saturation to be more “realistic” before broadcasting it.[17]”

 

started watching original twin peaks

Analog, 2017

Heard the 2017 twin peaks is so good that I’m going back to watch the original so I can catch up.

Season 1. Episode 1.

livedoodled it.

Going to do this for every episode.

Will be interesting to see if I can hone in likenesses over the course of the show.

And draw more than faces.

Notes I noted while watching:

  • Lynch so careful to have a logging truck go in the frame whenever possible.
  • Recurring music makes it so dreamlike.
  • Archetypes.
  • Cooper so naive and childlike at times.
  • So that’s where the phrase ‘fire walk with me’ comes from.
  • I wonder if there even is a Diane.
  • “When a man’s sweetheart is in the pen for manslaughter the word parole has a nasty ring to it.”
  • “Who is the lady with the log?” “We refer to her as log lady.”
  • Didn’t realize the sheriff’s name was Harry S Truman until I read the episode 1 entry at Wikipedia.
