Country Estates was an example of the frustration one might experience after reeling in "A big one" only to lose it just before pulling it out of the water. You are left with the only the memory of what you might have had. I was fortunate enough to have recorded this brief moment of quality TV and I had been intrigued by the David Lynch-ian twists expressed in the plot-line. Such twists created an atmosphere of surface normality while disguising the underlying 'reality' that hinted of evil. All the points laid out in the episode appeared to be setting the stage for future development (as they should), but we will never know. The opening scenes introduce us to a family that has suffered the loss of one of its members. This son appears as a spirit revisiting the family, his observations are then shared with the viewer. A novel, The Lovely Bones, by Alice Sebold offers a similar vehicle for expression.
