Twin Peaks S02E05: The Orchid’s Curse – Damn Good Podcast

We reach a shaky point in Twin Peaks history, as a number of the cartoonier plot points begin to draw themselves front and center, with Leo potentially returning home, freakishly strong Nadine's high school memory, and of course more...

Twin Peaks S02E03: The Man Behind Glass – Damn Good Podcast

Twin Peaks S01E06: Realization Time – Damn Good Podcast

A beautifully shot and directed penultimate episode of the season from Caleb Deschanel is hampered by an at times underwhelming script by Harley Peyton that seems to take a surprising number of shortcuts. It's still very solid television, leading...
