Re: Poll: Worst Roadhouse performance

I liked Lissie's song, haven't heard anything else from her but I thought it was quite good and she has a great stage presence - it was one of the more compelling performances because it seemed more like it could be "real" and not just lip-synched etc (insert Club Silencio reference here)....

Re: Mark Frost's Contributions to TP:TR (Speculation)

I didn't care for those more politically-charged or Relevant moments in S3. They definitely felt more Frost than Lynch but regardless of their genesis it's just too didactic and trying too hard to take a stab at "saying something" about certain hot-button issues... but while remaining vagu...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

I've been doing a very protracted re-watch of Season 3 (I guess that's what we're calling it now? ;) ). I started out watching quite quickly, like a few episodes a day, but I got tired of it. I just find the thing to be too dispiriting and dark and cold and all those adjectives to be really watchab...

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

2. the scene with Leo, Jacques and Ronette waiting for Laura is from FWWM.. some of it might have been alternative shots but it's basically the exact same scene except Laura never arrives in this version. So was all of the old footage used in Part 17 from the Pilot or FWWM as we know them? It seems...

An interesting critique from The Solute: http://www.the-solute.com/twin-peaks-the-return/ "It’s been over a week since Twin Peaks: The Return has finished spinning its tale. I’m angry. No, I’m more than angry. I’m pissed off at David Lynch. David Lynch has taken a gorgeous image of tragic decay...

Re: So is there anyone else who prefers The Return to the original?

TR is definitely better than Episodes 17 to 22 and Episode 28 of the original, and the best of TR is better than Episodes 17 to 28. But overall I very much prefer the original series.

Re: The evolution of David Lynch and Twin Peaks (Spoilers)

@agent echo - You talk about the last episode in your interesting and thoughtful post. For me, the shot that changed everything that sticks in the mind emotionally was when Coop drives up to Judy's diner and you see him walk up to the door. Watching that, I had no idea atall what was going to happe...

Re: So is there anyone else who prefers The Return to the original?

Honestly, I find the Evelyn Marsh scenes at least more watchable than Ben's Civil War stuff, Little Nicky, or Lana "bewitching" every man in town (while generic "romantic" flute music plays, of course). Those three are at the bottom for me - the only plots with basically nothing ...

OK folks. I'm callin' it a day. This thread has been the one sane place I've seen regarding the steaming pile of manure I've been conned into watching over the last many weeks. It's been an honour and a privilege to be here, but I can also say that I'm kinda finished for real this time. I'll love m...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

Yes, saw that too. Just imagine how that scene was being directed: "Thrysta :-), you now look at the camera and appear subtly agitated, yes, good, good, like that" . What a joke. :lol: At least TR didn't end with Cole/Lynch waking up suddenly in bed after another of his Monica Belluci dre...

Re: Season 3 was incredibly mean-spirited (spoilers)

Mean-spirited? I think you're forgetting the first Twin Peaks. What do you find mean-spirited about the original series? It's difficult for me to think of any such example. The only thing that comes to mind is Lynch's explosive handling of Episode 29, except I really do think he cared about and lov...

Re: S3: Biggest Disappointment About Unresolved Subplots?

I went with Red. The Audrey and Sarah "resolutions" are rather jarring from a traditional narrative standpoint, but I actually kind of love how DKL left them. The ambiguity is clearly a conscious choice, and I far prefer it to the overexplaining of stuff like Judy and the Blue Rose. In a ...

Re: FINAL POLL!!!!!!! Your Reaction to The Return as a Complete Work

It was shit that only pseuds and post-modernists could claim any affection for. This is the kind of fan-judgement on here which is itself incredibly pretentious and arrogant - the idea that anyone who has a different opinion, or rates things that you don't, or even likes them, is a pseud. Nope. End...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

The amount of Gordon Cole in The Return does strike me as pretty excessive and self-indulgent on Lynch's part, in retrospect. He's portrayed in such a flattering light, unsurprisingly - look at the beautiful women he beds! Look at how even Tammy makes goo-goo eyes at him! Did anyone notice that, in...
