OK, so I'm late to the party....

After living in the area this show was largely filmed in back '90 (the year I moved here actually!) I had heard of it but never saw it. Until today!

Thanks to our superb library I now have all 29 episodes on an extended loan. And watched the first 2-hr pilot this afternoon.

Full disclosure - I live in the area this was filmed in, right down to the Mar-T R&R Cafe (actually named Twede's), Great Northern Hotel (known locally as the Salish Lodge) which is now owned by the Muckleshoot tribe. The Snoqualmie tribe owns the land and Casino nearby. (And they could have had this property as well, but that's a discussion for another day.)

And there were many other shots that I identified with. Including and especially the dilapidated bridge. It's all local stuff to me.

Right, so the 2-hr pilot hooked me. And I'll be looking forward to the rest of the series. So far!

And yes, there was a new series that was filmed here recently. I'll see that in due course.

Any Twin Peaks fans here?


Cheers,

RR

I remember when this was first airing we used to RUSH home so we wouldn’t miss anything. We were totally hooked. It was so dang WEIRD.


Has anyone out there ever watched, “The Lost Skeleton of Cadavera”?

Forgot to add that a great many shots include Mt. Si, which is the predominant landscape feature here in Snoqualmie and North Bend. Mt. Si is visible on any semi clear day and sort of broods over the area. I also recognized the roads that were shown as cars travelled down with Mt. Si in the background. All local stuff.

And the waterfall - Snoqualmie Falls - right at the Salish Lodge (Great Northern Hotel in the series) is about a mile from my brewery. Supposedly the #2 tourist attraction after Mt. Rainier in W. Washington.

I'm working my way through the original series of 29 episodes, and will also get in the new series in due course. In fact I remember when they filmed the new series not too long ago, as they changed the sign on Twedes cafe back to the Mar-T for filming. I drive right by there to the brewery and back every day.

Now I'm starting to understand the cult following of this show, and why there are always so many tourists taking pics outside Twedes with Mt. Si in the background. Yet I've never had their cherry pie, which of course they are noted for.


Cheers,

RR

Now firmly entrenched into the series. Starting to binge watch it. Too much to discuss right now but it's hooked me big time!

One thing I'd sure like is to to have close captioning as some of the dialogue is difficult or impossible to understand. While I sort of get the general idea, it raises more questions than it answers.

In any case it's a way great series, and I can see getting this DVD set in after I return it to the library.


Cheers,

RR

That's impressive if you can watch it all during one library checkout.

After you're done, be sure to watch Fire Walk With Me. Then jump into Season Three!

I enjoyed the series immensely--you'll have to post when you've finished it.

Knocked off another 5 episodes today, and 3 yesterday.

All I can say is that this series has me hooked like a fish!

The scene where the ex-girlfriend and new boyfriend make it on the kitchen table in front of the paralyzed ex boyfriend sitting there in the wheelchair, unable to move a muscle...is very likely a classic of nasty excellence that even the great David Lynch may never surpass.

Shocked

Just saw that episode last night. Surreal.

Exclamation

Just finished the original series, and I have more questions than answers! Too much to go into right now. I have the special features to watch before I return this to the library, but those are just peripheral to the story line. And I don't expect an conclusion from them, but will view them anyway so as to have a full accounting.

The 3rd season is now being burned for me on DVD, courtesy of a bud with the connection to do this as I don't have the necessary hookups. I'll be viewing that soon.


Cheers,

RR
