Really Weird Stuff E14: Demons

Al Strobel in Twin Peaks (1990)

On episode 14 of Really Weird Stuff, we’re discussing Twin Peaks Season 2, Episode 6: Demons. This episode was written by Harley Peyton and Robert Engels. It was directed by Lesli Linka Glatter. It’s best known as the one that calls out the “Really Weird Stuff” directly (Gordon Cole, played by David Lynch, makes his first on-screen appearance). And Al Strobel knocks it out of the park as Phillip Gerard and MIKE, an otherworldly inhabiting spirit who broke good to stop his former partner in crime from killing again.

Special guest Chris Brugos joins us to explore such mysteries as:

DOES Twin Peaks have an official ACAB stance?

WHO wore the red plaid jacket best?

WHY must we hear “Just You and I” every time we see James and Donna on screen together?

PLUS: Brugos has some mind-blowing theories on Tulpas, Maddy, and why Gordon Cole is deaf!
