The return of Twin Peaks

‘Person of Interest’ my have ended but ‘Twin Peaks’ made a return, bringing the surreal mind of David Lynch to the small screen again – you were expecting weird but perhaps not this weird. I don’t know if the screen shot below is an alternative universe or what (created from atomic rage??) but glad to see a phone box features:

I finally watched the finale of ‘Person of Interest‘. Of course there were a couple of important phone shots that I recorded for posterity. I’m going to miss this show…

New viewing

Adam Curtis has released a new documentary called ‘HyperNormalisation‘. I highly recommend it. Here is a screen shot of a phone box in Russia – not in working order but I love the architecture around it.

And yet another from ‘Person of Interest’ . This show has been great in presenting new ways to use the phone. This one gets bricked up behind a wall and still manages to work years later…
