Trusty companions for a wild ride

Jensen and Franich are an extremely likeable couple of raconteurs and infectiously enthusiastic about the world Frost and Lynch have created, having obviously invested many hours immersed in Lynch & Frost's works to prepare. I found their geeky Lennon/McCartney riffs after each of the 18 parts of The Return essential listening. This was as raw and recorded as soon after each episode went to air as you could get, and yet despite this, their analyses and interpretations were deeply thought-through, with only a few minor missteps in the podcasters' recollections of which character did or said what, or who a character was meant to be or represent.

I looked forward to downloading each new podcast with almost as much child-like joy that I experienced watching each hour of The Return, and it was clear that they enjoyed making the podcasts, judging by how often they would make the other guy guffaw uncontrollably in the background. I can't think of anyone or anyone else's podcast that I would rather have hold my hand for this awe-struck journey, and the bonus episodes of interviews with Kyle MacLachlan and Laura Dern were engaging, funny and not fawning at all. As Dern said during her interview, if Lynch does make any further Peaks-related films or TV, these guys absolutely must podcast about it.

Their post-Episodes 17/18 podcast was suitably poignant and I found myself agreeing wholeheartedly with their conclusion that what Lynch/Frost have gifted to us will not be easily digested but requires considered mastication. It can, as they say, be seen as a fitting end, and it is ultimately up to us, the viewer/dreamer, to interpret the closing hour in our own way.

Is it future or is it past?

I'm going to miss you guys! Or did that happen already? I found you late in the series, and have been so impressed with your uncanny insights. You're smarter than a lot of other commentary out there... I will cry when your last podcast is done!
