Damn Good Podcast

Cooper, Miko, and Ophilia, hosts of Eat The Rudecast, return to watch and dissect every episode of Twin Peaks season 1, season 2, and Fire Walk With Me, leading up to season 3 on Showtime in 2017!

For the finale of season one, Twin Peaks borrows a page from Dallas. Mark Frost writes and directs a finale with multiple cliffhangers, uncomfortable moments, great performances from multiple characters, and terrible performances from a few others. This is the last Damn Good Podcast before our hiatus to cover Season 3 of NBC’s Hannibal for Eat The Rudecast. We will return in the fall with Season two of Damn Good Podcast.

A beautifully shot and directed penultimate episode of the season from Caleb Deschanel is hampered by an at times underwhelming script by Harley Peyton that seems to take a surprising number of shortcuts. It’s still very solid television, leading up to a “come back next week” style cliffhanger, but it pales in comparison with last week’s cracker of an episode.

We shake things up this episode, getting our least favorite storylines out of the way right off. (Hint, they involve Donna, James, and The Bobber.) This is a superb episode top to bottom though, thanks to director Lesli Linka Glatter and writer Mark Frost. At this late point in the abbreviated first season, it really feels like the storyline is approaching a climax, and the show is firing on all cylinders. “Into the Night” by Julee Cruise (with a superb music video) Damn Good Podcast is a co-production between Swingset.FM and Sound on Sight

Writer Robert Engles and director Tim Hunter impress the hell out of us with a dynamic and engaging episode that manages to showcase all the wonderful things about Twin Peaks while sidelining most of the obnoxious elements. That said, this episode does feature the disturbing domino oral fixation and Shelley Johnson trying to sexily rub a gun on her chest.

It’s Laura Palmer’s funeral, and of course Leland has to ruin this too! Not, of course, before Snake and The Bobber throw down against Broody McBroodsalot. We discuss in this episode how there is a lot of crap in Twin Peaks, but what makes the show great is its ability to put truly transcendent material around the crap. Don Davis and Miguel Ferrer turn in superb performances this week, as does Kyle McLachlan as always. Damn Good Podcast is a co-production between Swingset.FM and Sound on Sight

Cooper, Miko and Ophilia discuss their disappointment with the recent news that David Lynch will no longer be a part of the upcoming Twin Peaks reboot. They then get into this very exciting episode with some of the most memorable scenes of the series. So much to cover from the uncomfortable silence at the Horne dinner table at the top of the show, Jerry Horne’s entrance, Agent Cooper explaining then using his unconventional deductive process, Ed getting grease on Nadine’s cotton balls, Snake and the Bobber’s encounter with Leo in the woods, the introduction of the abrasive forensic analyst Albert…

The crew tackles the first episode of the series proper, addressing the differences in subtlety when David Lynch is directing vs this episode directed by Dwayne Dunham. They continue to hate on Mike and Bobby, especially now that they know their nicknames: Snake & The Bobber. We catch our first glimpse of BOB and Cooper debunks the mythology surrounding Frank Silva’s hiring for the series. We enjoy ourselves thoroughly.

Cooper, Miko, and Ophilia scramble to keep up with the veritable smorgasbord of character introductions in the feature length pilot to Twin Peaks. Entitled Northwest Passage, this first episode of Twin Peaks has the unenviable task of introducing the plot, the style, and the town, all at once. We all love on Special Agent Dale Cooper just as much as we hate on Mike Nelson and Broody McBroodersen. Um. James. Damn Good Podcast is a co-production between Swingset.FM and Sound on Sight
