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

The poll's not pussyfooting around anything. It's divided into quarters. Within each quarter there's a range. It says "Like or Love", which does not in any way imply that they are the same thing, but instead indicates that they both fit into the range covered by the top quarter. This poll...

I've never been so shaken and sickened by a swerve I knew was coming. Absolutely masterful!

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

It's too easy. The character is not hurting us DIRECTLY. And it has weaken the character. I disagree, what he did to Diane and Audrey hurts us directly. Cinema is showing. It's been too many parts that I haven't SEEN and experienced directly the evil that's inside Bad Coop. Of course, I know he's b...

Re: Part 15 - There's some fear in letting go (SPOILERS)

Seeing glimpses of him in his old state of mind does not constitute something like: "we have seen him for the past x number of episodes". Wake up people. Stop accepting whatever is thrown at you. You all know exactly what I mean with my previous statement. Eh, this thread is dedicated for...

Re: Ranking the episode of The Return

I need to rewatch before I can rank, but off the top of my head I thought the best parts (or at least the parts with the best bits) were 2 (Laura and Coop in the red room), 4 (the final scenes), 7 (I liked the narrative flow), 11 (loved the ending), 12 (Sarah Palmer's scenes), 14 (various), and may...

Re: Gender in Twin Peaks: The Return (SPOILERS)

I think as we close in to the end the central project of the piece's relationship to gender and sexuality will come into focus, and will put a new lens on the more problematic seeming things we already witnessed. I think, as usual, this is the authorial intent, we have the fun of parsing whether it ...

Re: Ranking the episode of The Return

Surprised to see so little love for 6. The narrative may have ground to a halt for a week, but it was full of stellar atmospherics, from Cooper slowly taking satisfaction in a form of expression with his doodles--the first real hint at how emotionally disarming his small moments of lucidity and cur...

Re: Part 13 - What story is that, Charlie? (SPOILERS)

Hey everyone that can, keep your subscriptions for at least a few months after Twin Peaks ends. Showtime is banking on our continued subscriptions. If they see a huge drop off right after part 18, they'll figure that Twin Peaks got their numbers up for a few months but there was no retention. No re...

Re: Part 9 - This is the chair (SPOILERS)

Most disturbing thing in episode 9 is that the girl's beer can is obviously empty and she keeps drinking from it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I KNOW. Took me right out of the scenes. She was such a tweaker though, maybe she didn't notice? (Grasping at straws here...) The only reason this is ...

Re: Annie Speculation (SPOILERS)

Hi. First post, long-time Lynch/Twin Peaks fan, loving Season 3. Registered to post my speculation about Annie. I've come to think Annie may be Janey-E, in something like a White Lodge witness protection program. We now know that Annie lived and survived, but elements of her story have been rewritt...
