So which is it buddy? This show is complex, no doubt about it. It could all
be Lynch's idea of a big joke on the American public, but I doubt it and I
don't care anyway. The question doesn't have to be whether Lynch or anybody
else did it on purpose, but what the effect is on you (us). You don't want
to look for complex hidden meanings, you hit 'n'.

In other news, did anybody else find the effect used in the dream sequence
very interesting? I mean the way it was edited to be "jumpy", as if every
so often frames had been dropped. Also, the views of Agent Cooper's face
were strangely distorted; I couldn't tell if it was makeup or an electronic
effect. Unfortunately, as has been made clear by others, that's it for the
Lynch-directed episodes.
