  • Twin Peaks Commissioned Pod

    Listening to the podcast and I had to pause and write this post.

    If you were too young or not around back then, it's  hard for anyone to really understand how impactful this show was when it first aired. 

    Jim, the cheesy soap-opera music, the weird biker bar (that is not like any real biker bar) are all part of Lynch's weird take on the show. Oh man I wish you could take off your 2017 lens and see this show as it originally was.

    That scream that Grace Zabriskie gave (Laura Palmer's mom) was unlike any scream heard on television before. It was real and Lynch let the audience wallow in it for as long as he could get away with. Our eyes are so trained today to not even notice these things, but back then, it was incredible. The lingering camera shots, the awkward pauses, the bizarre dialogue--none of this had been done on TV before. I know it's hard to see it now though, because we have those techniques on the worst of shows.

    And for the love of all that is holy will you watch Blue Velvet? It is one of the seminal films of the century for god's sake.

    Has anyone pointed out yet that Sid Barrett was a founding member of Pink Floyd and was known to do a lot of LSD?

    Probably.

    I noticed this as soon as they mentioned her name.

    Also, I'm old, and may know something about LSD. Just saying.

  • You guys really gotta ditch the "half assed cast" format

    I like the way the guys are doing it. The Leftovers is such an unconventional show, and leaves us pretty much breathless after each episode. The way Jim and A. Ron attack it is like being around the water cooler at work the next morning.

    I like that. But I can understand how others would prefer the more conventional way.

  • The Americans - Season 6

    Since the boys don't cover this show anymore (arggghh) I found a very good podcast called Watching the Americans. There is also another put out by Slate.com and every week it features the two main writers and a special guest like a director or actor. The two leads have appeared on it several times.

  • Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell - BBC miniseries

    I loved the book when it came out and I thought the series was very well done. 

    I can't wait to see the BBC adaptation of His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman. Such a great series deserves a good treatment. The first film in the trilogy wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either.

  • AMC's The Terror

    I came here to start a thread but I see there already is one. Wow. Those first two episodes were great. This really seems like something A. Ron would like, considering his love of the Master & Commander books.

    And the cast! Wow. Looks like AMC does have some money after all. (People talk a lot about how TWD is notoriously cheap on production and actors' salaries.)

    I know this is based on a book, and I'm really trying to stay away from spoilers. I'm not sure if there is something supernatural at the heart of the show and I don't want it ruined by some reviewer. Anyway, I'll be tuning in again. I may just buy the season, which I do for most shows I watch.
