 ***SPOILER ALERT***

 

 

 

Elise Moore and David Fiore plow right ahead into parts 3 and 4 of the story - and they're awfully glad they did! We contemplate the dismal final day in the life of an LMD (Lodge Model Decoy), marvel at the generous jackpot compensation plan offered to Black Lodge parolees, and forget to discuss Dr. Jacoby and his gleaming shovels. Two (Good Dale) thumbs up!

Here we are for Parts I and II - in which Elise Moore and David Fiore discover just how difficult it is to discuss a David Lynch project while it is still in progress. (We also receive dire intimations of what might have happened to Charlie Brown's little X-mas tree if it hadn't gotten a little love.)

Hello!

Just a quick reminder from Dave & Elise - we hope you'll consider joining us for the journey through David Lynch final (?) visual storytelling project.

It starts happening again on Sunday, May 21.

In the meantime, we heartily encourage you to check out our previous 'casts on TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME, MULHOLLAND DR., INLAND EMPIRE, and LOST HIGHWAY.

Don't take the ring, friends!

Join Elise Moore and David Fiore as they gear up for David Lynch's imminent return to the Pacific Northwest with an extended discussion of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. We'll be covering every episode of the show's much-anticipated third season, and we're more excited than ever after our most recent viewing of the director's divisive prequel/coda. Powered by Sheryl Lee's galvanizing performance, Lynch's first "Woman In Trouble" masterpiece emerged from the ashes of the TV show's rather confused (to put it charitably) second season. This Passion of Laura Palmer is a centrifuge which separates all of the most potently Manichean elements out of the folksy flannel Brigadoon Lynch and Frost had created for the network - generating some of the most soaring and soul-shatteringly debilitating moments ever filmed.

We worry that Season 3 may walk back FWWM's extraordinary final shots of Laura, Coop and the Angel; talk a lot about Victor Fleming's hyper-Freudian 1941 version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; and bear witness to the liberatory power of a sex-negative worldview (at least in some artistic contexts - don't try it in real life!)

We're here with our penultimate AMETHYST: PRINCESS OF GEMWORLD original maxi-series episode: 3/4, covering issues #7-#9. Amethyst gets a love interest and a nifty wedding outfit, while continuing to prove that STEM subjects are way more important than English to being a Gemworld ruler. There are more sad, creepy deaths in families. Dark Opal gets even screwier as Amethyst thwarts more of his plans, needs a Twitter account.

Elise and Dave take a look at AMETHYST, PRINCESS OF GEMWORLD nos. 4-6, the point at which a 7-year-old Elise came in, in 1983. This run of issues features some of Ernie Colón's best artwork and two of the series' most memorable covers (as Elise can vouch), as well as some signs of hastiness. Dark Opal cranks up the evil; we meet new important Gemworld denizens; and the hosts ponder the question of what exactly happened to the eldest Princess Emerald.

Dave and Elise turn their attention to Elise's favourite non-team title from the 80s, Gary Cohn, Dan Mishkin, and Ernie Colon's AMETHYST: PRINCESS OF GEMWORLD maxi-series, and give an enthusiastic account of the first three issues (plus the preview in LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES vol. 2 #298). Elise is depressed to remember which of the characters shares her birthstone, tries to do a feminist theory analysis of Amethyst's nipples. Dave gets excited about the prominence of a golden retriever as a character.

Dave and Elise tackle New Teen Titans Vol. 1, Issues 10-12. Ask whether the Terminator's motivations, or plans, really make sense; debate whether Wonder Girl is in danger of a dub-con or non-con romantic relationship; rejoice at the first appearance of T.M. Maple. Dave concludes that gods can only be totalitarians or do-nothings, and either way are jerks. Elise marvels at the creators' deft touch with the epilogue feels.

Elise and Dave look at a milestone issue of The New Teen Titans, No. 8, “A Day in the Lives,” and have a few nits to pick. We ask searching questions, like: is Wonder Girl's feminism consistently presented? (Answer: no, because the comics have to have as many hot babes in them as possible.) Did George Perez make a mistake when he drew college student Wally West's humble middle-class Blue Valley home as a mansion? (Answer: no, because DC comics need everybody to be super stinking rich.) We agree that Vic Stone has the best moments (finally) from this run of numbers 7-9. On either side of the centerpiece, The Fearsome Five return, and there's some even campier stuff with board member-murdering puppets.

Dave and Elise follow The New Teen Titans to the end of their first, rather shaky arc, all the way through to the breakthrough issue, #6. We contemplate the differences between the artistic styles of George Perez and Curt Swan (guest penciller of issue #5) and the editorial personae of Marv Wolfman and Ernie Colón and attempt to analyze the political philosophy of Trigon (“He's like Hitler and Satan!”).
