Did You Know?


Hank Worden was a veteran character actor who appeared in several westerns (including One Eyed Jacks) after working as a rancher - a genuine cowboy. His most notable role was in the Searchers as Mose, a cowboy kidnapped by the Apache who has "gone native." Mose's erratic behaviour bears a striking resemblance to that of The Waiter. See more »

What was that?

I don't think I have ever seen such a wonderfully meaningless and surreal scenes as in this episode of Twin peaks! I mean, the first seven minutes of the episode with the old man/waiter/host is just insane and surreal as it can get. Then, the scene when the two girls are talking in the restaurant and then Donna's transformation into femme fatale and her 'dialogue' with James ( who is, by the way, looking so handsome - it is just unbelievable - in that prison scene with Donna) ... Just unbelievable! And then the dancing of the brothers with their lawyer who has gone white over night ... Just too many scenes of utter absurdity! But this is what makes it so interesting!

I would have given it a ten if there wasn't for 'less' defining moments in comparison to the pilot/first episode of the series.
