Ready to look at Twin Peaks Season 1 with the eyes and ears of someone who’s seen every minute and page of Twin Peaks? We are too, and we have just the thing for you. The Blue Rose Task Force Podcast continues its deep-diving spoiler-filled exploration of Twin Peaks here with Episode 1, the second overall installment of Twin Peaks (which is otherwise known as—depending where you look—S1E2, Episode 2, or what the German regionalization team named “Traces to Nowhere”).
Your host John digs into how director Duwayne Dunham established the tone of the new episodes after the show’s Pilot was ordered to series and production moved to Los Angeles. Then—using all aspects of Twin Peaks from 1990 to 2017—it’s time to sift for clues in the Log Lady Introduction and Episode 1 as a whole, all the while looking into the show’s evolving—yet surprisingly consistent—mythology.
What advice does David Lynch give us for being the best detectives? How does sound design influence what viewers consider important? Is Dale Cooper already influenced by the Red Room? Is the whole town influenced by Lodgespace? What kind of presence is Laura Palmer? And what is going on with Sarah Palmer and the Palmer house? John puts on his detective trenchcoat to find out.
