okay, I'm really disappointed; I hope last night's show was not
an indication of what's to come now that Lynch is done directing 

the only good part was the funeral...the slowing down of
Bobby's voice was slightly satanic...or Dune-ish..remember the
Voice that the women used.... and I, too, LOVED Shelly re enacting
the scene in the diner...it was GREAT!

But the acting was very shallow, nothing too imaginative with the
cinematography...anything that could have been visually interesting
just made me think "they're trying to copy Lynch"; less unique than
forced...

My favorite quote:

HST:  Damn.
Lucy: Damn.

Is anyone else a little bothered that Cooper 'forgot' the name
of the killer?  Contrasted with his memory of everyone's police
record, and other little details, I found it a little strange.  Not
strange good, though, just an annoying plot trick.  I guess he
probably thought he would never forget it, so he didn't write it down,
but I'm pretty sure he did remember it when he called HST; you don't
just FORGET something that important...

and when he mentioned buying property in TP that was also a little
annoying.  Okay, okay, he has mentioned that he just loooves it there;
didn't think places like this existed anymore...but am I the only one
who thought, "and here's the connection if the series gets renewed..."
one of the things I liked best about TP was that it didn't seem to
care about 'outside' things like ratings and renewals...but I guess
one has to be realistic; it's all a big money game, and without both
of the above, this wonderful group would probably die out!

enough complaining, I suppose.

oh yeah, someone mentioned the 'secret place' imagery; seemed
appropriate somehow with the funeral and the burial and all...things
being put away and sealed up.  Wonder what secrets the coffin
holds...?

Damn!
