Re-viewing (as opposed to reviewing) an episode
One of DL's signatures is dwelling on a scene or shot for what seems to many (including myself, on occasion) for an uncomfortably long amount of time. What I have noticed on re-viewing episodes is that subsequent viewings of those shots which I initially felt over-long now seem exactly right.
It's analogous to the feeling I get when driving to a new address I don't know: the return trip from the address seems much shorter to me than the initial drive even though it's precisely the same distance.
Does the this ring a bell for anyone else?
Yes, I've noticed this several times.
For more on this phenomenon, you should read "Only Forward" by Michael Marshall Smith. It's a novel that I believe would appeal to all TP fans.
