“It all cannot be said aloud now.”

So, with the advent of the new series of Twin Peaks, I had pondered on whether to do a weekly post about each episode, but of course people watch television so differently these days,  seldom on the same day, and so the possibility of spoilers makes this an issue. Maybe I’ll do so later in the season when we’re all firmly entrenched.

But in the meantime, new Twin Peaks has once again brought to my attention the way certain fans yearn with such frenzy to explain everything down to the smallest detail and to tie up every last mystery with a bow. Of course anyone is free to deconstruct and critique to their heart’s content, but I’ve never understood this attitude when it came to the work of Lynch, and while thinking about this phenomenon, an analogy sprang to mind:

Not every Picasso is a jigsaw puzzle of the Mona Lisa.
