Post Apocalypse Peaking to early
I’d never actually watched Twin Peaks. My girlfriend, however, is a massive fan. Upon hearing of my “condition”, she eagerly embarked upon a marathon watch. Sadly, things didn’t go to plan. Ten minutes after the haunting, hypnotic theme tune, lulled like a baby ( and possible drooling like one), I was fast asleep on the sofa. Not a slight on the show; the fault lies with the hypnotic qualities of Julee Cruise’s backing melody.
I grew to love my sporadic drifts in and out of consciousness during these viewings, tuning into the show at random points which only served to heighten its surreal qualities. I experienced some of the most bizarre dreams I’ve ever had, leaving my girlfriend to patiently bat away comments such as, “Why is Kyle MacLachlan talking to a llama?”, before falling back into a doze to dream of slices of cherry pie washed down with coffee
“I experienced some of the most bizarre dreams”
served from a tree branch.
So bring on the next nine instalments! I’ll be waiting, in excited anticipation, for the opening credits to roll. If they keep the theme tune then my girlfriend’s in for a long journey, with random ridiculous questions throughout. “Why are they all riding pigs like horses?”; “Why is Agent Cooper wearing a banana as a moustache?” I guess I really need to start watching the original two seasons again and remember to mute the TV during the titles. Wish me luck! Craig Addy, High
Wycombe I had a similar experience with Outcasts. But only because it was incredibly dull.
