Re: Black Lodge/White Lodge mythology

I sort of got the sense from Part 15 that Cooper and Jeffries may not have spoken since FWWM. When Jeffries says they “used to” speak, Mr. C immediately references Jeffries’s appearance in Philadelphia, as if that was the last time they spoke. That whole exchange is odd. I think we can take everyth...

Re: Most impenetrable scenes

To me the jail phone call, like the arm wrestling and his resurrection, was just to demonstrate that Mr. C has some supernatural abilities and connections that are vast and unknowable. It doesn't necessarily need to have an "explanation", although further elucidation of this very importan...

Most impenetrable scenes

As much as I love Twin Peaks: The Return there certainly are some scenes that to me seem to be downright impenetrable and that i haven't even seen close to a "reasonable explanation" for, Mister C's weird technique gadgets aside, stuff like Major Briggs and The Giant's plan / Mister C's qu...

Re: Did Cooper really fail? Was Laura really supposed to die?

Excellent post. Definitely food for thought! Yes, I wondered that. Lynch has seemingly developed a great love of Laura and his raison d’être appears to me have shifted from the original idea of the ‘dead girl’ macguffin leading to new stories in the town to making Laura the main character in his fa...

Re: The visual aesthetic of the new Twin Peaks

as has been discussed and mentione in other threads seeing the entire series on Blu Ray really made the visual style pop and glimmer in a way that wasn't at all apparent when watching the compressed streams. there seems to have been quite a lot of work done after the fact so they might very well hav...

Did Cooper really fail? Was Laura really supposed to die?

it seems that one of the more accepted readings of "The Return" is that Cooper failed his mission and what he set out to do. having seen "The Return" several times now and especially having been able to see it all in a few 4-5 hours sittings spread out over a couple of days gives...

Re: TP:TR. Full 18-hour experience

something else very striking with watching the series in larger chunks and also having seen it many times and had plenty of time to think about it is that the storytelling of the piece really has started to make full-on internal sense.. this is pretty much the same thing that happened with Inland Em...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

After watching the behind the scenes docs there is no question how much Twin Peaks was DL's vision. no doubt it's his vision, but i don't think it really changed much.. i think there's just as much Mark Frost as we had thought as well.. being that the extras reveals how closely he stuck with the sc...

Re: should "Windswept" have been utilized more in The Return?

Yes! Both the titular track and others like Insomnia, as you point out. But I wouldn't know where they would fit... I wonder why Lynch went for an instrumental version of Saturday for Chromatics' second Roadhouse appearance? Did the lyrics not fit? I kind of liked that instro version of Saturday ev...

Re: The shot fired into the diner...

Not sure if this scene has been discussed on the board here, I hadn't been on the forum for awhile. I'm just going through a re-watch of the series on the DVD, and like everyone else I'm sure, I'm noticing so much more each time I go through the series. One scene that struck me as being odd in so m...

should "Windswept" have been utilized more in The Return?

just like Angelo Badalmaneti and Dean Hurley, Johnny Jewel added nothing but brilliance to The Return. i first saw the music vieo he released for the title track "Windswept" a few weeks before the series started airing and i instantly got the entire project and I'm very happy that i did as...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

I just needed a place to vent and say this Blu Ray release has been an unmitigated disaster. Despite pre-ordering on the day it was announced, and as a Prime customer, Amazon doesn't even have a suggested shipping date, Showtime has none available despite saying it's in stock, and all the Best Buys...
