I started watching the original Twin Peaks series again (it’s on Netflix), and I forgot how good it is! I’m getting a lot more out of it the 2nd time around and seeing the new series helps explain certain things. But what’s really amazing is all of the Thimbleweed Park similarities I’m seeing!

- The R&R diner is reminiscent of the S&D Diner (especially from the outside)
- The light outside the roadhouse (when Jacques Renault is in trouble). This one really blew my mind:
