  1. Finally listened to this and this is an all-time great Designer Notes. Pope getting extremely existential trying to figure out how to be a Game Dev Dad was open and honest in the best way.
  2. ME FOR THE PAST FEW WEEKS: "I wonder what the neurologist will discover when Janey-e takes Dougie to the doctor? Will they discover what's blocking Cooper from surfacing? Or maybe that his brain patterns are reversed, or something like that?" Then Janey-e just takes him to their regular doctor for weight/heart rate/blood pressure. I laughed.
  3. This is the correct reaction to have. I am looking forward to the next curveball that gets thrown at us. As far as I can tell, it is. I've been trying to identify scenes that are shown out of chronological sequence but I can't think of anything not identified that way.
  4. What a straightforward episode! I guess after the last one you kinda have to do that. I was wondering if Johnny Horne was going to be on this new series and I guess he was.
  5. RE: Jake's problem with "teens together -> teen getting stabbed and turning into Jason" resulting in giving Jason too much information on teen locations, maybe a cooldown period for Jason to actually appear might be enough to let the teens scatter?
  6. I remember sitting in the theatre when the woman at the pizza place register answers the phone in time with the music and wondering, "How many takes did they have to film for that?" It was a meticulously planned moment with no impact.
  7. Just re-read my post from the Fire Walk With Me thread, in which Robert Engels said a post-series Twin Peaks movie would need to include at least "one of the four people who knew what was going on," which included Cooper, Windom Earle, Major Briggs, and another character the audience member didn't remember, plus a wish to use Phillip Jeffries again. Except for Windom Earle, all of these characters have (sort of) shown up again in Twin Peaks: The Return.
  8. For what it's worth, the current episode of Dev Game Club is an interview with Mark Laidlaw. He describes some of the decisions about the game (no cutscenes, no voiced Gordon Freeman) as more limitations of development than firm decisions. http://www.devgameclub.com/blog/2017/7/5/dgc-ep-069-interview-with-marc-laidlaw
  9. Oh, and Jake's description of Lost's finale as "the worst resolution of ambiguous lore, sort of meta-arc, in TV history a decade ago," really spoke to me. I might have said this before but I felt so burned by Lost I gave up watching all new television. In the years since I've seen new episodes of grandfathered series like The Simpsons and Arrested Development, some episodes of Orphan Black before they started torturing the husband, and almost nothing else. Twin Peaks The Return brought me back!
  10. There's nothing quite like urinating out in the open air!
  11. I love Dune! I love the Beast of Yucca Flats! Now they're the same thing! Oh, and Ray is working with the fake Jeffries? Jeffries has to know that the doppelganger Cooper can pull that trick, so what good is Ray, anyway?
  12. Did a Twitter search for a text snippet of the third diary page that wasn't read by Truman or Hawk. Whoever this Twin Peaks fan is is smart!
  13. How quickly will the doppelganger Cooper dispatch Ray? Is Ray basically a goner once Mr. C. gets him alone, or is Mr. C. going to use him to get to the people who hired him? I can't tell what the doppelganger currently views as an obstacle to his plan.
  14. It requires a formal definition of a Blue Rose case which we might never get (which is OK as long as all the involved characters know it), but it explains Diane's actions and reactions very well.
  15. RIP Jerry Horne lost somewhere out in the woods presumed dead or stoned.
