Funday Sunday: "Twin Peaks"

Stepping in real quick today to squeeze in a Funday Sunday post.

Since I posted that meme a couple of days ago, I've not been able to get the magnificent TV series called Twin Peaks out of my head. And, while it isn't a comedy series - it does provide a wicked sense of humor. Not the laugh out loud kind - but the kind that keeps your smile attached to your lips from start to finish.

Besides - Emmeline told me she hadn't seen the series, and I must do what I can to allow her the pleasure of watching such a wonderful show.

Don't forget to check out the "3rd" monthly commenter story if you missed it yesterday! (Scroll on down)

A wicked sense of humor is the best kind. I laughed out loud a few times during that clip. Well, it was more like a chuckle but still, it was something. All the characters in this show were great. The timing is perfect.

Madman, you are officially tagged for the "Getting to Know you Meme". My apoligies...

Dianne: Ah! Yes... and when the disturbing stuff starts happening the cold shivers start up your spine - and who doesn't just love that feeling?

Jay: Lynch is WAY out there - that's why I love him so much (in a very professional sense).

Fortune Cookies: Twin Peaks is the one and only show everyone must see at some point. It is a sin not to have seen it ;)

Jill: Well, I hope that's only because you're too tired right now ;)

Jahooni: Yeah, I've missed you 'round these parts this past month. You didn't even make it into the story!

Nice to see you back though!

Knight: This is the kind of humor I enjoy the most. I don't usually like it when they try too hard to be funny. Twin Peaks has many of the funniest moments I've ever seen - the llama at the vets, the old man at the bank (in the last episode), the fish in the percolator... and about a thousand others.

Richard: Hmmm - another meme? Ok - thanks, I guess. I'll be over to check it out and see what I can do.

I'm too young for Twin Peaks. Watched that clip... I have a feeling it makes more sense in context...?

Jill said...

Not only I'm not gonna be watching it again tonight, I'm trying to find energy to takes my contacts off, but I'm not getting you tonight!

Emmeline said...

Hmm . . . I feel like I've missed some key point of the story . . . weird clip . . . not sure if I would like it or not. I'd probably have to watch a whole episode, but thanks for introducing me!

Cinder-Single: Twin Peaks does not play out like a "normal" TV series... you'll just have to let it take you wherever it goes ;) It's like a dream...

...speaking of dreams - you still dream about me? Sweet, and no need to be embarrassed about it. You could tell me all about them, instead!

~Angela~: You can never be too young for Twin Peaks. They are available on DVD... just need to buy the boxed sets and enjoy the show ;)

Jill: Are you not getting me, or are you not getting the awesomeness that is Twin Peaks?

Emmeline: Yeah, any short clip is going to leave you confused when you don't know the story. Twin Peaks especially, which was a typical series in which you needed to watch every episode to be able to follow the story... and it keeps getting weirder ;)

Jill said...

Well......both!

R.E.H. said...

Jill: That's tough...

Jill said...

It's a first time for you, darling! Don't get disappointed!
