I feel as though Malachy Sreenan was cast as 'Bosomy Woman' for at least two reasons, which seem mutually contradictory but oh well here goes: i) pretty strong resemblance to Bonnie Aarons and ii) so they could get a weirdly-pitched deep voice to use without using dubbing.

I lean towards number ii) being of significance. Pitch-altered voices have been used before in Lynch (e.g. 'Yeah! Yeah! Pigeons spread diseases, and mess up the place; you've seen it' in WaH; also in Dune) but as an effect it leaves something to be desired. Better is to have the voice actually coming from the body in real-time for a host of reasons. So we have a male actor playing the Bosomy-Woman in order that the voice is nice and deep and gravelly-raspy. It's also recorded backwards, played forwards so we get the strange pre-echo on the hard consonants as in MJA waiting room scenes.


agreed, but i don't think it's only significant bc of the voice but also to make her stand out as more creepy/otherworldly in apperance. similiarily to how they had a male play a disfigured female in "Pet Semetary" to pretty damn unsettling effect:

Why should I?


Because you're being condescending. A "colossal exercise in pretension." If you've enjoyed it then in what way to you consider it pretentious, assuming of course a no-name writer/director had created it? How many great authors and directors are constantly called pretentious? What does it mean? That you don't like it after all? Is it a synonym for slow-paced or unconventional? Not enough mass appeal? Maybe you mean it is not sufficiently plot-driven.

By calling something pretentious, you are claiming that others who enjoy the work are mistaken. In order for this claim to be correct, you have to back it up with something other than your personal tastes. Otherwise, just say you don't like it. So again, give me a break here.


Telling someone to trust "the masters" while essentially saying they just don't get it is far more condescending.

I've enjoyed the bulk of it, but not all of it. There are bits that exceptional and bits that are exceptionally poor - and I can understand why someone would feel that the exceptionally poor parts ruin the whole thing. And the poor parts are pretentious, no doubt 'bout it. Watching a guy sweep for 10 mins to test "audience patience" is pretentious and a poor execution. There are many ways to create ideas and engage audience - or testing them, however you wanna phrase it - but sitting there watching Jacoby paint or a guy sweep is not good, and whatever meaning you derive from it doesn't account that it breaks up the pacing and flow of the episodes.

Pretension exists when something grand is executed poorly. And saying something is pretentious doesn't accuse anything of the audience, but only of the artist.

DougieCoop will be OK. He inserted the fork in the large blade of the socket. N. American code dictates that this is the neutral, which is ultimately bounded to ground. The hot wire is the smaller blade.

... sorry ... Just a pet peeve of mine. You'd think one of the set electricians could have given a little guidance here. Maybe they did, and the set dresser didn't have a fork that fit right.

He came out of an outlet and swapped places with another person who got turned into a gold bead. I think whichever part of the outlet he stuck the fork into matters little when it comes to this story.

I love this idea :)


I don't know, living in a house in the woods near to the portal that claimed a quarter century of your life might make it hard to move on. Like moving in next door to your ex.


True :D.

But I think if Cooper makes it out of this season alive,it will be as equally hard to resubmerge himself in a world where he's constantly reminded of the life experiences and people he missed out on. I think he could easily become quieted, more of a recluse, after this whole experience sadly. My guess is this is why Janey-E and Sonny-Jim are in the story, so that our hero has the option of living the life he missed out on, even if it's not the one he chose.

Maybe Cooper will end up looking for Annie once everything has settled. Wouldn't he still have feelings for her? Or did 25 years of being trapped make him forget about her? They could have a double wedding: Ed/Norma and Dale/Annie.

What do I remember from Sunset Blvd? Well, that factually it was a story told by a dead person. Talking of such, this episode 15 ( 7 + 8 ) represented love and death to the extreme. And did you notice that Jeffreys "lived" at number 8.

I believe Freddie and James were in cells 7 & 8 also.

As much as I want Cooper to return to the FBI and perhaps get reinstated, I'm going to miss Janey-E and Sonny-Jim. I really hope Janey-E learns the whole truth about Coop and his connection with Diane. I'll be over the moon if she decides to stay by Agent Cooper's side once Season 3 reaches its conclusion.

I've been accused of being a glory hog around here, but I did propose this theory. It's several pages back on this thread.


"No one" was hyperbole... Guess what I meant was that I expected MORE to be speculating about this.

Lynch put strong emphasis on that woman for a reason. (And yes, in the world of the show, it's a woman. Don't care that the actor is male.)

i love how open minded 99% of twin peaks fans are. gotta love it!

Does anyone think we'll see anymore of Big Ed and Norma? I hope this isn't the last we see of them, we only got Big Ed in two "parts" :cry: I would love to see them planning their wedding or sharing their bliss with Bobby and Shelly and helping reunite them.
