Aug. 11, 2017
Allie and Jeremy sift through the mixed emotions they and the rest of the
Internet felt about different aspects of this episode. Sudden "hey look
who's back" returns, more violence, and perhaps they have discovered the
true endpoint of Twin Peaks. We'll find out in the coming weeks if they're

The crew jumps into the show this week with lots to talk about. NBA Live

shoutcaster getting kink-shamed, and if that's really a thing. We discuss
the success (or lack thereof) for the most recent Pokemon Go event. After

and blue jokes abound on this episode of Spawn On Me!
Aug. 2, 2017
Allie and Jeremy discuss an episode that Showtime and the cast have been
hyping as one in which "big stuff happens" (as if that weren't every
episode). Find out whether Allie hated this divisive episode at all...or as
much as many friends texted that they assumed she would.

Nintendo is making chat so hard for its players.

Jake Fogelnest returns to discuss the most substantial, "Lynchian" episode
yet, coming just before Twin Peaks goes on a two-week break before the
final ten episodes start airing. Does this episode deserve the "one of the
great episodes in TV history" praise that Jeremy and others gave it the
night it aired? Are the questions it opens up more fascinating than the
ones it does/doesn't answer?
Does it convince us that we all really need a serious Transcendental

was our first guest, and is therefore better than the rest.

continuing dividends paid from watching the original series as well as
Fire Walk With Me, new micro-mysteries revealed as we continue on through

modern media (and potentially real life?).
