Regrettably, I've come to the conclusion that with TP you've got to take
the bad with the good.  The show has its ups and downs, that's for sure.
 For every brilliant sequence it's given us, there have been six or
seven sequences that never should have made it into the script.  I've
also come to the conclusion that different people adore the show for
different reasons, so it's pretty difficult to say definitively which
moments are enjoyable and which are crap.  But I know I have my list ...

I think so.  Here comes our first spinoff TV series: "Audrey Horne:
Special Agent Spy Babe".  A Mata Hari for the 90's.

Yeah, personally that spooked the crap out of me.  Hypothesis: Briggs
was in BOB's world, wherever that is, somewhere across space/time.  Not
a nice trip either, I think.  And not intentional.

I don't think we're done with Laura Palmer OR Bob yet.  Or Leland.
