Ashley and Mat discuss the finale of The Return.
Returning guests Jess Lane (@notjesslane) and Brendan James (@deep_beige) join us for our 50th episode to talk about father-son bonding, texting etiquette, finger sandwiches, and dancing like nobody's watching.
Scott Benson (@ImSoSurePodcast) joins us once again as we approach the end of Twin Peaks: The Return.
It's time to talk about Judy.
Joel Bocko (@LostInTheMovies) joins us for a Parisian dream, some sandwiches with cheese, one hell of a Twin Peaks clip show, misophonia triggering noises, a superhero origin story, and... the best scene ever.
Conga lines, gym sets, Mormons, existentialism... and a place called Drape Runner Corner. On top of all that, the return of our "favorite" piece of Twin Peaks music. What a week.
We talk about Agent Preston, Sarah Palmer, the long-awaited — and oddly frustrating — return of a beloved character, and we brainstorm the perfect way that Mr. Todd could be taken out (it involves a Wendy's).
Jess Lane (@notjesslane) joins us to discuss allusions to art, parallels to True Detective, and straight-up references to Se7en in this week's installment. Oh, and we talk about the Briggs situation... you know we do. Apologies for the echo-y audio — the Woodsmen may have interfered.
Part 10 wasn't our favorite, but it was a useful jumping-off point to talk about larger concerns with the new series. Plus, how can you not love Albert and Constance?
Three investigations. Two Coopers. One sweet, sweet boy. It's the Frostiest episode of the new series yet, and we're here to gab about it.
Our discussion of The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer — which assumes you've seen the original series, Fire Walk With Me, The Missing Pieces, Parts 1 through 8 of the new series, and that you've read The Secret History of Twin Peaks. Got that all down? Good.
Brendan James (@deep_beige) of Chapo Trap House joins us to discuss Part 8. We ponder woodsmen, soul orbs, gross eggs, Kafka critters, and "The" Nine Inch Nails — plus we take a moment to consider Lynch and Frost's original plans for a third season.
Part 7 feels like a real return to the town of Twin Peaks and this episode might feel like a return to the old Twin Peaks Peeks — longer discussions, goofier tangents... and some last minute dunking on Billy Zane.
Scott Benson joins us to talk about loss. About getting to know people. About mysterious messages... and... about swearing in the rain.
Reckless kids. Shady dealings. Mysterious phone calls. There's a lot of shit to dig through this week — good thing we've got our golden shovels.
Familiar faces. Unfamiliar spaces. Good fortune. Bad smells. Thumbs up. Furrowed brows.
Our dharma? Podcasting. Your dharma...
The stars turn. A time presents itself. Intros are nailed. "Lost" is discussed. As is "Scooby Doo." Billy Ray Cyrus is invoked. A new member joins the Silver Fox Club.
In other words, Twin Peaks Peeks is back.
New episodes of Twin Peaks are just a few days away. We're still here. Today we're talking about coffee ads. Join us.
Mark Frost wrote a new Twin Peaks book. We're here to talk about it. You know the drill.
Our discussion of The Missing Pieces (deleted scenes from Fire Walk With Me) and our initial thoughts on the casting news from Showtime!
Our discussion of Fire Walk With Me. We also delve a little bit into our thoughts on what the film might mean for season 3 and have a comment or two on the recently released casting news from Showtime, but our extended discussion of the latter will accompany our episode on The Missing Pieces.
Twin Peaks Peeks finishes Season 2 with guest Scott Benson of I'm So Sure Podcast. This week's cover art is a comparison of the Owl Cave petroglyph with a real petroglyph in Washington, sent to us by Christian Hartleben (@prophit19701).
A rocky start to what aired as the first part of the Twin Peaks finale in 1991.
We credit a particular writer for putting the entire Twin Peaks team on their back this week as we approach the season 2 conclusion. There's also a murder offscreen this week, because Twin Peaks.
The show starts picking up threads to weave together in the finale. Oh, and Donna makes the least impactful threat ever.
Things are looking up on this week's episode. It's a miracle. A massive, massive miracle.
We try to figure out the motivations driving each character in the show. It only goes sort of well.
Even though there's another new face in Twin Peaks, all eyes are on Ben's FILA jacket.
TPP is back from hiatus with (1) some news about the new series (2) serious discussion (3) Dana Ashbrook talk (4) Chris Pine talk and (5) more Dana Ashbrook talk.
Mat got lazy about updating the podcast. If you've already watched the episode, you've got one guess as to what kind of scene we spend time ranking this week.
Molly Shannon is in this one. In an alternate timeline, Leo would be starting a new business venture. Just pretend a writer's strike happened.
A wealth of new characters helps us add to the ever-growing pile of Twin Peaks spin-off ideas.
Are you on the Twin Peaks "list?" You don't know what the list is? Oh, then you weren't invited.
Fair warning: this episode temporarily becomes a "Lost" podcast. But then again, by the Tommy Westphall Hypothesis, wasn't it always?
Does Twin Peaks let us have private moments with characters? Will Ashley's dream of a Twin Peaks sitcom starring Norma ever be realized? Is Seattle really that far from Twin Peaks?
Audrey returns. Josie leaves. The One Armed Man speaks. Bobby and Shelly raid the only party store in all of Twin Peaks.
A shorter episode. Blame Donna?
Ashley and Mat discuss their trip to check out the Washington towns where the show was (and is being) filmed! No casting spoilers! #KeepTheMysteryAlive
Hey, while you're listening to this episode, pop open your browser and donate to Planned Parenthood. Podcasts about TV shows are nice and all, but real peoples' real healthcare is at risk: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/
The hosts return from North Bend, but there are no from-set spoilers for the new series of Twin Peaks. Instead, there are spoilers for Mulholland Drive and a few other things. Whoops.
Ashley and Mat discuss: does this show not make room for women in the humorous supporting cast? They watch: Blue Velvet. They eat: creamed corn.
It's the Season 2 premiere! This week, Ashley and Mat are joined by special guest Scott Benson. All three set out to answer an important question: Who's your favorite Hayward?
The season one finale of Twin Peaks. There are so many cliffhangers we found a list of them all (warning: list may exaggerate the number of substantive cliffhangers).
The Mystery Teens are particularly busy in this week's episode... but should they be focusing on the mystery of the grapes instead?
The Icelandic investors arrive in Twin Peaks... but the question is, did they time travel to get there?
There are two really long parts of this REALLY long episode. No, neither of those parts is "Drape Runner Corner."
Ashley and Mat discuss funeral fashion and the internet's inability to form good theories around this episode.
Welcome to the strangest place you've ever been... welcome... to Drape Runner Corner.
Cooper and Audrey flirt, Donna does Laura dirty, and a fish goes for a swim in some coffee.
The first episode of Twin Peaks Peeks! Extra long because the Pilot is too. If you like the show, subscribe and share it with your friends!
