As we move on from the Laura Palmer storyline, much like Garland Briggs, we go into the wilderness. As Hawk tells us this week, every soul must pass through the Black Lodge on their way to the White, and so we at Damn Good Podcast pass into the darkness o...

Resolution. When Arbitrary Law originally aired, a lot of the audience for Twin Peaks had already abandoned it, perhaps not accepting the resolution that they'd been shown when Leland/BOB killed Maddy. It's a shame they did, because the performance Ray Wi...

We're in a post-Maddy world, now, and the “Who Killed Laura Palmer?” storyline is barrelling toward a conclusion. Ray Wise delivers a terrifying and sublime performance as Leland who may or may not be behind the wheel of his own body. We see h...

Big shit goes down this week in Twin Peaks! We get the answer to the most important question that's been vexing us…just WHO THE HELL IS MR. TOJAMURA?! Well, not really, we also get pretty good idea who actually killed Laura Palmer this week. In addi...
22:28:07 2017-02-23
We return from our extended hiatus to a changed world but choose to stay in the weird 1950s/1990s hybrid that is Twin Peaks. We talk about all the happenings in Peaks land, including The Secret History of Twin Peaks by Mark Frost, and new audiobooks of Th...
22:29:16 2016-09-16
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 with the Hardy Girls ...

Laura's Diary is revealed, and Leland is held accountable for the murder of Jacques Renault while other shenanigans happen and a very racist character shows up. Cooper is incensed by the lesser elements of this episode, namely Hank and Harold, and discuss...
22:16:26 2016-07-29
We're disappointed to learn that some of Season Two's…lesser storylines start up this week, with far too little time (though exceptional as it is) given to Ray Wise and Leland. The One Armed Man undergoes a transformation, Maddy laments being though...
22:20:16 2016-07-15
A trigger warning is apt, that image that scarred some of us for life, of BOB crawling over the furniture, is in this episode of Twin Peaks. We find quite a bit to like in this second Lynch directed episode of the season, and are thankful that its shorter...

It is happening again…It is happening again… A Damn Good Podcast About Twin Peaks returns, with hosts Cooper, Miko, and Ophilia discussing the Lynchiest Lynchian season premiere that ever Lynched. In a double-length episode that uses its exces...

For the finale of season one, Twin Peaks borrows a page from Dallas. Mark Frost writes and directs a finale with multiple cliffhangers, uncomfortable moments, great performances from multiple characters, and terrible performances from a few others. This i...
22:17:29 2015-05-15
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 up to a ...
22:25:27 2015-05-08
We shake things up this episode, getting our least favorite storylines out of the way right off. (Hint, they involve Donna, James, and The Bobber.) This is a superb episode top to bottom though, thanks to director Lesli Linka Glatter and writer Mark Frost...
22:17:01 2015-05-01
Writer Robert Engles and director Tim Hunter impress the hell out of us with a dynamic and engaging episode that manages to showcase all the wonderful things about Twin Peaks while sidelining most of the obnoxious elements. That said, this episode does fe...
22:25:05 2015-04-24
It's Laura Palmer's funeral, and of course Leland has to ruin this too! Not, of course, before Snake and The Bobber throw down against Broody McBroodsalot. We discuss in this episode how there is a lot of crap in Twin Peaks, but what makes the show great ...
22:26:58 2015-04-10
Cooper, Miko and Ophilia discuss their disappointment with the recent news that David Lynch will no longer be a part of the upcoming Twin Peaks reboot. They then get into this very exciting episode with some of the most memorable scenes of the series. So ...
22:24:14 2015-03-27
The crew tackles the first episode of the series proper, addressing the differences in subtlety when David Lynch is directing vs this episode directed by Dwayne Dunham. They continue to hate on Mike and Bobby, especially now that they know their nicknames...
22:28:25 2015-03-20
Cooper, Miko, and Ophilia scramble to keep up with the veritable smorgasbord of character introductions in the feature length pilot to Twin Peaks. Entitled Northwest Passage, this first episode of Twin Peaks has the unenviable task of introducing the plot...
51:19 2015-03-07
Welcome to the very first episode of A Damn Good Podcast about Twin Peaks. Cooper, Miko, and Ophilia, hosts of Swingset.FM‘s Hannibal podcast Eat The Rudecast, partnered with Sound On Sight to crawl through the archives and watch Twin Peaks from the...
