That's okay for me.

There are only 30 episodes in seasons 1-2 and season 3 won't air before spring 2017. So, we have time.

Episode 2 may be one of my favourites. 

I particularly love the introduction of Jack with One Eye and the Red Lodge. I hope these places will be seen in season 3.

And I think Jerry is an interesting character.

Jeremy, on Netflix, the first episode is Pilot, then Episode 2, Episode 3, etc.  So I watched tonight Episode 3:  "Zen, or the Skill to Catch a Killer." 

haha!  The two brothers are Ben and Jerry (since I am fond of Ben and Jerry ice cream), who visit One-eyed Jack.  Is the "new girl" at the brothel the other kidnap victim, Ronette?  And Ben used to sing to Laura?  Weird.  Is "J" (in Laura's diary) = Jerry? 

Agent Cooper's dreams seem like acid trips.   Bob is one creepy character, but then again so is Leo.   And Laura's father is pretty creepy too.

I love how quirky Agent Cooper and Lucy are.  Agent Cooper blowing a duck whistle for no apparent reason, with a goofy smile.  Lucy and her weird love of stacking donuts in neat little stacks.  :happy face

I can post about Episode 4 sometime next week.  :happy face

No, Ronette is at the hospital :amused


And Laura's father is pretty creepy too.


I think he's just a father in shock after the death of his daughter. In the next episodes, there are also a few funny moments involving him. Actually, a scene involving Catherine and him may be one of my favourite TP scenes.

I will rewatch the next episode (Episode 3 for people who use the box set) next weekend.

Hi Jeremy, thanks for the answer about Ronette.   Yes, ok, I can understand about Laura's dad.   Sorry, which character is Catherine?   I need to memorize the characters' names still. 

So are you and I in sync, with the box set and Netflix numbering the episodes differently. Or are you ahead of me by one episode?

So I will watch what Netflix says is Episode 4 (which the box set calls Episode 3?)  tonight or tomorrow and post this coming week.

So I am half-way through "Rest in Pain," and I thought I would post my thoughts before I forget. 

So the dream of Agent Cooper is not like an acid trip after all.   His dream holds the clues that will solve the murder of Laura.   This really belongs in my post about the prior episode, but I'll post it here.

Things I can remember that were in the dream:

-Mike the one-armed man.
-His form of Mr. Hyde:  Bob the killer
-They/he lived above a store.
-The dwarf's cousin looks like Laura and is filled with secrets?  Or is Laura filled with secrets? 
-Something about Agent Cooper's gum.


I know I forgot most of the clues.  Jeremy, can you remember other clues? 

The forensics guy who Agent Cooper brought in was funny in this episode.  He was mean, but funny.  Jeremy, now I understand what you mean about Agent Cooper's kindness, how he intervened to make sure Laura's family would have Laura's body ready for the funeral.   He also defended the sheriff.  :happy face

I really dislike Bobby and Leo.   I think Lucy is hilarious.

I finished this episode. 

The funeral was pretty dramatic.  I respect Bobby's honesty. 

Agent Cooper's kindness again appears when he takes Laura's dad home when he breaks down.

There is another important thing in the dream : Laura says to Agent Cooper who killed her. 

The opening may be my favourite part of the episode. I love interactions between Agent Cooper and Audrey.

Bobby and Leo are awful, indeed. Nonetheless, in one of the next episodes, there is a beautiful scene involving Bobby and his father.

Ah yes!  If only he remembered! 

I'm embarrassed to say I don't remember the opening of the episode.  What was it?   I'll have to go back and watch the beginning of that episode.

Leo is so scary.  I did like Bobby's honesty at the funeral.

Agent Cooper has breakfast at the Great Northern Hotel. He is joined by Audrey (she tells him about the One-Eyed Jack) and, then, he meets the sheriff and Lucy (and they talk about the dream).

Thanks Jeremy. 

Having guests over this week.  I probably won't have a chance to watch the next episode until Thursday or Friday.  Will try to post before Saturday.  Sorry about that.

I'm half-way through the episode.   They meet the one-armed man,  Mike.   Bob is a great veterinarian, and is Mike's best friend.   The tatoo on his arm said "Mom."  :big grin  Love the scene at the veterinarian's office with the llama staring down Agent Cooper, and also the subsequent scene where they ask Lucy to go through the files to find everyone who owns a bird.    Lucy is funny.  Haha!   The files are filed alphabetically by name of pet.  :happy face


I see Agent Cooper's kindness in more and more scenes, Jeremy.   He defended Sheriff Harry Truman, and was understanding when deputy Andy (?  not sure if that is his name) dropped his gun and almost shot Cooper.   Cooper is a great shot himself in terms of his shooting skills!  Made two eyes and two nostrils at target practice!  :amused

Bobby and Shelley hatch a plan against Leo.  HOpe it works!  Poor Norma.  Her husband didn't change and now he's coming home.  Jeremy, do you remember what her husband's name is?  Was it Hank?  Is Norma's affair with big Ed done?

The continuing saga of why Lucy is mad at Deputy Andy (?) continues . . . :amused   Hope they figure it out before Andy shoots someone because he's so stressed.

So now we have Ben Horne involved with Leo.  Ben H. didn't seem to bat an eye when he saw the dead body of the brother of Jacques (forget his name, of the brother who died).   I don't remember why Leo was in prison, but now we know he is a cold-blooded killer. 

I'm a little confused about Bobby's reaction to Shelly showing him the bloody shirt of Leo.  I assume that Bobby thought the blood belonged to Laura?   If so, I would think that he would be more enraged upon seeing the shirt.  I guess I'm assuming he actually cared about Laura, but maybe he didn't. 

What is Hank's involvement with the owner of the mill (played by Joan Chen, I don't remember her character's name)?  She looked terrified.

I like how this show has an element of the spiritual or the fantastical, like how Agent Cooper, Laura's mom, and Laura have visions.   Sorta reminds me of certain films from Asia.  The scene with Donna and james in the woods was sorta funny, because they were spooked by Laura and her mom's abilities.    And why do Donna and James have Laura's necklace (I'm assuming the other half of the heart)?    Jeremy, to be honest, I don't remember much of this show.  ha.  Shows how bad my memory is.

Poppy, you're the only person I know who writes reviews after watching the half of a episode :amused

I don't think you have a bad memory. We just have so much things to keep in mind...

The owner of a mill is Josie and I think Norma's husband is indeed Hank. I haven't rewatched the episode yet. I'm gonna do that next weekend and, then, I will comment the rest of your review :happy face

Hi Jeremy.
Jeremy wrote:Poppy, you're the only person I know who writes reviews after watching the half of a episode

 ha.  I know it's not ideal.  But this show has so many things going on and I also watch whenever I have time, which means that I may only have time to watch 1/2 of it at any given time.  I may not get to the last half of the show until a few days later, and I'm afraid I may forget all the different things that happened in the first part of the show by then.  :amused

 
Jeremy wrote:I don't think you have a bad memory. We just have so much things to keep in mind...
Aw, that's sweet of you.  I also realized that I saw this show when it first came out.    I think that was in the early 90s, so some time has passed.   Thanks for the names of Josie and Hank. 

Enjoy the episode!  :happy face

I've rewatched the two episodes. In the first one, Lucy and the scenes related to the veterinarian were indeed funny. In the next one, my favourite part may be the storyline with the Icelanders (there is that Leland/Catherine scene I've told you about). 



Leo is involved in many dark stories... I guess Bobby assumes the blood belongs to a drug dealer or someone like that.



Laura and James was (kind of) a couple and, in one of the very first episodes, you see Laura giving the half of the necklace to James.

Hi Jeremy. 

I will watch the next episode this week and post by Sunday.  :happy face 

I do feel bad for Leland.  That scene where he broke down during the dancing was sad.   Makes sense about what you said about Bobby thinking the blood could have belonged to a drug dealer or someone else involved in shady dealings.    Thanks for the reminder about the necklace (why James has it). 

I forgot now which character said it (maybe it was Agent Cooper?) but a character reminded me of Sam in Glee, when that character was summarizing the facts by saying:  "FACT:  x.  FACT:  Y   FACT:  Z."  :happy face  It was in one of the earlier episodes.  Also, the Log Lady sorta reminds me of "Neckbrace Cheerio," and  the hair style of Agent Cooper (aka "Coop") reminds me of Blaine's hair/gelmet (and the name of "Coop"--aka  Agent Cooper-- reminds me of  Cooper Anderson's name).    For some reason, I'm thinking of Glee.  I wonder if Ryan Murphy was influenced by David Lynch's Twin Peaks?   Do you see any of David Lynch's influence in Ryan's other shows, such as Scream Queens or AHS (both of which I am too scared to watch  scared ), Jeremy?

I don't remember that scratch

Also, the Log Lady sorta reminds me of "Neckbrace Cheerio,"

Because they both have a object they always wear ?

At first sight, I don't see Lynch's influence on Ryan Murphy (but I must say I'm not a regular viewer of AHS).

I do see a link between Twin Peaks and Pretty Little Liars. And I'm not the only one : if I have a good memory, I got interested in PLL because someone wrote that it was a bit inspired by TP.

Yes?   They both are characters dropped into scenes with curious items, that seems arbitrary and results in interest and questions in the minds of viewers.   No explanation was given about why both characters have these items, although the Log Lady at some point has dialogue about the log that fits with other elements of the fantastical in Twin Peaks.
