Just a wild guess, but what if that were a VHS of the fictional soap opera that Lucy used to watch in Seasons 1-2? I can't recall what it was called but I've been rewatching the original series and it shows up briefly in almost every episode.

Invitation to Love.  

Shelley watched it a lot too.  I could never quite figure out the point or significance, but it seemed important.

After looking at the snack more closely, i think it might be pork rinds.  I believe the video is some sort of nature video about predators.  I believe I see a lion.  Remember when Sarah was watching the lions eating the water buffalo show on her TV?  That's a possible connection to Sarah along with the white horse.

I don't think it had much significance other than being a hoot. And also a wink that TP itself had many elements common to soap opera's (quite a bit subverted of course).

Is Cooper 's mistake, not a real a mistake. But a realization that the marvellous way out not the right one is. And that an acceptance should be in place, that in no matter which universe you end up, there always will be failure.*

* In this instance the failure of Laura`s rebirth/reincarnation.

Oh, it was only in Season 1, and I don't think it had any bearing on the story. It was just a meta-reference to the fact that Twin Peaks was a wild soap opera. It was, like many elements*, a sign that Lynch is communicating to us both as story consumers and as fellow artists who analyze what we're watching. It served as punctuation to some scenes, but I don't think it was ever meant to be like characters in Invitation to Love would show up in Twin Peaks.

Others have pointed out that Dr. Amp's show is like the Invitation to Love of the 21st century. In the 90s, people watched daytime soaps; nowadays, tons of people watch political diatribes on Youtube. (Though of course, Dr. Amp is a character in Twin Peaks and does have bearing on the story.)

I suppose Dr. Amp is the modern equivalent, but it doesn't quite ring true with me.  Most of the Soaps have gone by the way side and replaced by "reality" TV, of which I would specifically mention the shows like "Real Housewives of...." or "Basketball Wives" and whatnot.

Ugh, I really hate reality TV.

Agreed.

And I want my television programming as far away from reality as possible. 🙂
