Trivia

Cooper's dream is mostly made up of deleted scenes from Twin Peaks: Episode #1.1 (1989) in its alternate international edit. See more »

Goofs

When the Horne brothers go to the One Eyed jacks by boat, the scene is running too fast, visible when you observe the movements of Ben . Matter of fact it is not a real goof as David Lynch liked to protect natural environment by shooting scenes like this slower as needed just to speed them up later. See more »

Quotes

Albert Rosenfield: What the hell kind of two-bit operation they running out of this treehouse, Cooper?

Crazy Credits

Instead of the show's usual closing credits still shot of a photograph of Laura Palmer, the closing credits of this episode features footage of the Man from Another Place dancing. See more »

It's getting weirder & better.
17 June 2010 | by joshi_3592See all my reviews

I started watching this show because I had heard it was a form of paranormal or supernatural based, or something, but at least I knew it had to be good since it is a David Lynch show. The pilot missed any oddities, but it was good so I continued watching. This episode is where it get's weird. If any of you have seen the Simpsons episode "who shot Mr. Burns, part 2" you're gonna have fun with this one. This episode has the infamous dream sequence, it is weird, it is confusing, but I loved it. This is Lynch at his weirdest and best. I can't help it, I love dream logic, and it is very hard to make on film/TV, but this time they really got it right.

And not to forget the rest of the show, it's getting more intricate, butt hat just makes you wan't to watch the next episode even more.

It's finally getting there, I give this episode a 10/10.
