Twin Peaks

Laura Palmer - Wrapped in plastic I’ve started re-watching in the evenings to try and stimulate my mind a little. “All work and no play make Ben and Jerry dull boys…”, and I so miss it… on the whole, Twin Peaks was fabulous TV, yes there are some dodgy bits, yes there is some dubious acting, but as a general rule it’s great. I’d love to see a cut with parts of the incedental stuff taken out..

I have always been dissapointed by the fact that more Twin Peaks or Twin Peaks spin offs were not developed… Just a show about Lynch’s view of the FBI would be fantastic alone… Agent Dale Cooper, Albert Rosenfield, Gordon Cole, Chet Desmond. I think Twin Peaks alone was responsible for my need to be able to drink coffee black (“Black as midnight on a moonless night.”)

Coop and Albert have some of the most mermorable lines ever, just thinking of Albert alone, almost all his lines are memorable…

ALBERT
What the hell kind of a two-bit operation are they running out of this tree house, Cooper?

ALBERT
I have seen some slipshod backwater burgs, but this place takes the cake.

ALBERT
What are you waiting for, Christmas? We’ve got work to do damn it. They’re putting this girl in the ground tomorrow and we’ve wasted half the day traveling out here to the middle of nowhere

ALBERT
Mr. Horne, I realize that your position in this fair community pretty well … guarantees a venality and sincerity and uh … a rather irritating method of expressing yourself. Stupidity however, is not a necessarily inherent trait. Therefore, please listen closely. Your can have prestigefuneralplans any ol’ time. You dig a hole, you plant a coffin. I however can not perform these test next year, next month, next week or tomorrow. I must perform them now. I’ve got a lot of cutting and pasting to do gentlemen so please why don’t you return to your porch rockers and resume whittling.

ALBERT
Oh yeah, well I’ve had about enough of morons and half wits, dolts, dunces, dullards and dumbbells … and you chowder head yokel, you blithering hayseed. You-you-you’ve had enough of me?

And I could go on – Albert hasn’t even finished 2 episodes and he has more quotes than I can shake a stick at…

I just wish someone would hurry up and get the rest of the episodes out on DVD – my video player is dead so I can’t watch all my videos. I’ve read somewhere that Paramount are putting it out around spring 2006.
