    Is it just me, or is the music in the turkey speech scene eerily similar to American Tail: Fievel Goes West?

      Probably just you, or smelling too many diesel fumes while cranking landing gear, or checking the PSI in your three air tanks on the Super B, or maybe listening to it while trying to shift the converter and back it into your second fifty three foot trailer for your next haul while the brakes are frozen solid.

      I hope your trucking career goes well for you actually (work in transportation/warehousing myself) and luckily you probably don’t have to deal with cold weather first world problems. Pin to Pin is the best job in trucking where you just drop trailers, hook up trailers and go without having to physically move product is the ideal but that probably won’t happen.

      As for the show, I never saw it but heard a lot about it, and it seemed too weird too interest me. Glad you’re a fan and the review it really good, but it’s not a show I ever had any interest in.

        Without Twin Peaks, there would have been no X-Files, if that helps. :-)

    When will The Dark Knight Rises review come out??

    If you want The Dark Knight Rises review soon reply with YES to this post.

    • John Wilson

      Well, I like to see it when he can do it:).

      • MichaelANovelli

        Well, Sofie wants in on that one, so it’s a question of when we’ll both be available for it…

    Congratulations on the 50th, Mendo, and good luck on becoming a truck drivin’ man!

    You were asking why the movie started the way it did and why characters disappeared and such. I think a lot of that has to do with Kyle McLachlan not getting along with Lynch anymore and wanting to leave the movie early, so the story of the movie was shattered by the need to create a bunch of work arounds for the male lead (if you don’t count Leland) not being in most of the movie. Sure, Lynch likes weirdness for its own sake but I think in this case a lot of that weirdness was in order to save the movie. “I meant to do that!”

    One name you didn’t mention in the review (at least I don’t recall it, if you did) is Mark Frost, who co-created and co-wrote the show, but wasn’t involved with the movie. That’s another factor involved in the structural issues of the film — Frost is a more traditional Hollywood storyteller, and like the Beatles they aren’t the same flying solo. Not that I’m saying the movie is bad, like you I liked it a lot including taking seriously parts you thought were silly like the murder scene. Believe it or not, I saw the movie the first time with my mother. She liked it too, and was very moved by Laura’s story.

    I’ve thought a lot about this show and movie over the years. That’s the only reason I went on so long about it like a know-it-all above, not trying to be critical. I enjoyed your review and own personal reactions. I also enjoyed the final shot of this review, which was both a reference to Twin Peaks and a callback to your earlier shit pie shenanigans!

    • MichaelANovelli

      Yeah, the first half of the film kind of beat us over the head with that. It was like, “We get it, he’s not Cooper…”

  • Thomas Stockel

    Congratulations on fifty episodes, Mendo!

    • MichaelANovelli

      Thank you! ^_^

  • MichaelANovelli

    I realized when I was putting together that montage at the beginning that, for most of its run, my show hasn’t been very interesting, visually. Hopefully, this episode will put an end to that…

  • gasmaskangel

    Congrats on a 50th episode man, and here’s hoping you do 50 more.

    • MichaelANovelli

      Knowing how you sound when you talk, I probably would have heard that as, “And here’s hoping you do filthy porn!”

      • gasmaskangel

        You should do some filthy porn to, just out of principal.

        • MichaelANovelli

          Well, I’ve got no class, and I’ve got no principles, and I’ve got no innocence! I can’t even think of a word that rhymes!

  • CaptainCalvinCat

    50 episodes? That is not just some small deal, this is definitely awesome. So congratulations from Germany. To many more episodes to come.

    • MichaelANovelli

      Oh, there will be!

      • danbreunig

        Great job Mendo for number 50, and more to come down the pike! How many is that including the written recaps?

        David Lynch sure ain’t one to spell things out for you while you watch. When it comes to pleasant ambiguity though I’d have go with Don Coscarelli.

        So…would I win a donut for solving the “whose cameo came from what review” game?

        All the same–I’m ready for more. And best of luck in truckin’.

        • MichaelANovelli

          I’m curious to see if you could pull it off, myself…

  • John Wilson

    This is werild. I was just looking at twin peaks last week:).

    • John Wilson

      also I just realized Laura diary is like the Diana tapes:).

      • MichaelANovelli

        So, the butler is gonna steal them?

  • The_Stig

    Here’s to you, Mendo. May the next 50 episodes be even better than the first.

    Yanno, I agree on David Lynch. Anybody who calls themselves a cinephile should know what they’re getting into when they watch one of his films.

    • MichaelANovelli

      You know, you wouldn’t think a guy who started his art career setting dead mice on fire would be that weird…

      • The_Stig

        I know right? Funny ol’ world, innit?

        • MichaelANovelli

          That’s why I love it!

  • Creature SH

    Congratulations on the 50th and on making me confused!

    • MichaelANovelli

      Always a pleasure!

  • Alexa

    The first David Lynch movie I ever watched was Dune, but maybe that didn’t count because it was the Alan Smithee version. But really what I enjoy about David Lynch is the moods and atmospheres he creates. There is just something very mesmerizing about his directing that even if you hate it, you won’t soon forget it. Its very rare nowadays to find a director as distinctive.

    • MichaelANovelli

      Lynch might be the only formalist director I actually like. ^_^

  • edharris1178

    Congrats on 50, buddy.

    • MichaelANovelli

      The excitement has not yet worn off!

  • MichaelANovelli

    So, here’s the most important thing: did this review make anyone wanna watch INLAND EMPIRE?

  • maarvarq

    I am not scared of David Lynch, I’m am just tired of random crap thrown onto a cinema screen being called art.

    • MichaelANovelli

      Well, Lynch isn’t quite as bad as that. His films generally make a sort of sense once you’ve had a chance to think about them. They’re not all easy watches, though. I’ll give you that…

  • The Horror Guru

    I love me some David Lynch. Well done, my friend. =)

    • MichaelANovelli

      That’s because you are sane!
