Trivia

The title, "May the Giant be with you," seems a clear reference to "May the Force be with you" from Star Wars. The Giant himself, Carel Struycken appeared in Ewoks: The Battle for Endor (1985). Editor Duwayne Dunham also cut Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). Laura Dern, who also appeared in the revived Twin Peaks (2017), also appears in Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017). See more »

David Lynch at his most surreal....
19 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first season of Twin Peaks was really great. Although it was only 8 episodes, it introduced some very interesting and mysterious characters with secrets and hidden backdrops. It was a great mystery/crime drama with elements of surrealism. The 1st episode of the 2nd season continued but dwells even more into the surreal and nightmares that David Lynch is so known for. The episode is masterfully written and directed, and it involves some of most disturbing images ever on Television. The last scene is enough to scare many viewers and to wonder what type of show they are watching, since many must have thought this would only be a murder mystery. Hopefully, the rest of the season is as great and I will be looking forward to more and to where Lynch and Frost takes me.
