Quotes

[introduction]
The Log Lady: A poem as lovely as a tree: "As the night wind blows, the boughs move to and fro. / The rustling, the magic rustling that brings on the dark dream. / The dream of suffering and pain. / Pain for the victim, pain for the inflictor of pain. / A circle of pain, a circle of suffering. / Woe to the ones who behold the pale horse."

I am currently RECOVERING from this episode.
21 May 2015 | by louisjamesbanksSee all my reviews

David Lynch shows his genius once more. I have fallen off of my chair whilst watching a TV show, overwhelmed with emotion just once. That was Breaking Bad Ozymandias. I am truly in awe at this masterpiece of an episode. I strongly believe that this might be the best episode of TV ever. I did not want this review to be full of plot analysis, spoilers or any direct relation to the idea of 'review'. I am sorry if this is not entirely a 'review' but if I could convey to just one person how sublime this episode was to me, then maybe others may share in the awe that I have just. I urge you to watch the art that I have witnessed. Utterly unbelievable I am staggered beyond recognition.
