G4 and David Lynch

David LynchJake Gaskill did an excellent writeup for G4 on his first impressions of Bright Falls.  It rehashes what seems to be an obligatory comparison to David Lynch before recapping the first two episodes.

Interestingly there’s also a section called Alan’s Story which appears to have additional clues about what led up to the events of Alan Wake. New clues are being unveiled as the “episodes” air.
