Really Weird Stuff E6: Twin Peaks – Cooper’s Dreams

“Cooper’s Dreams” is the 5th episode of Season One of Twin Peaks. It was written by Mark Frost and directed by Lesli Linka Glatter, who is one of the more experimental auteurs in the Peaks-verse Lynch/Frost, notwithstanding. It originally aired on May 10th, 1990 and is perhaps best known for being the one where Cooper’s a little on edge and only has time for coffee, and the gang hikes to the Log Lady’s cabin for tea and spooky log testimony. Special guest, Cecelia Gunn joins us to explore such mysteries as:

WHAT is Doc Hayward doing, tagging along on strenuous police field work?
WHY does “Flesh World” keep publishing photos of Leo’s truck?
HOW come nobody, including Maddy, remembers meeting Maddy?

PLUS: Donut Crimes, gun-happy Peakers, and of course, STFU JAMES!

What’s the best part of the brownie? What happened to the Bradley Cooper who was in Wet Hot American Summer? All this and more will be revealed!

Paid in Puke S6E9: Dirty Dancing

On today’s episode, we’re carrying a watermelon for Emile Ardolino’s 1987 romantic drama, “Dirty Dancing”, starring Jennifer Grey, Cynthia Rhodes, and Jane Brucker. It’s a slumber party classic for women of a certain age. We reminisce about how much of the plot we understood when it first came out, Johnny’s chaotic energy, and the short-shrifting of Lisa Houseman. 

On the Lunchtime Poll, we discuss memorable moments from our youth that resulted in our radicalization.
