(1) WHY?  Why did this have to come along just when there's no possible
way I can afford the time to watch the show, let alone spend hours
afterward dissecting it and hours more through the week reading this
newsgroup.
(2) WHAT?  What was Leo doing slicing up that football just before
Shelley got home (and who but David Lynch would include a scene of a
psycho slicing up a football with a kitchen knife)?  Someone suggested
that Leo was trying to hide something in it, but then realized that once
a football's been sliced open, it's probably not a very good hiding
place.
(3) WHO?  WHO IS DIANE???  This seems to me to be THE central question
of the show.  Best idea I've heard so far: Diane is actually the NAME of
Cooper's tape recorder.  He talks to "her" about his cases.  Second-best
idea: Diane is a friend (of some sort of Cooper's), but is also the
murderer, and was having an affair with Laura, and is the perpetually
out-of-town mother of the guy-whose-name-I-don't-remember-at-the-moment-
but-who-sure-does-remind-me-of-J.D.-from-_Heathers_ (which is to say, a
junior James Deane).
--jed (No.  I can't afford the time.  No way.  Uh-uh.  Well, okay, I
missed the pilot, so maybe I can just watch this one episode...)
