Re: Who is Alice Tremond?

Personally I think that translation is kind of fluid - I still think the B&W/purple place a.k.a. "The Fireman's House by the Sea" is the White Lodge. Or a sublevel/antechamber of it. YMMV. That's the beauty of the show.

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

Disagree. The first time I saw FWWM over twenty years ago I thought that good-hearted Agent Cooper only told Laura not to take the ring because he was thinking of her life but didn't understand the larger stakes, namely her possession by BOB unless she sacrificed her life by putting it on. Last year...

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

I think this is a completely valid area of discussion and pretty much essential to any analysis of Lynch, but good lord is most of the discourse on it utterly shallow and insipid. That SFGate piece describes the Sam/Tracy sex scene as being "framed from Sam's POV." This is the problem whe...

Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

What exactly do you think TP fans did on this forum and many others for 25 fucking years? There is a very clear and distinct difference between speculation about things we've seen on the screen and just pulling things out of absolutely nowhere. This thread is mostly the latter, these theories stand...

Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

I'm sorry, but this theorizing is a bit silly. What exactly do you think TP fans did on this forum and many others for 25 fucking years? If you don't like theorizing and deep analysis, guess what: This is the wrong fandom. Whether you like what you watched or not is not relevant to what this fandom...

Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

Re: one other plot point - I feel relatively convinced the voice on the phone in part 2 is Sarah Palmer/Grace Zabriskie/Judy ("I missed you in New York"). I've heard a fan's attempt at trying to undo the distortion in the voice and it sounds a lot like Grace. But that's me.

There's also Dana interviewing her in the same piece. Some great insight into Shelly in Season 3.

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

Who gave you the right to decide that anyone other than yourself has been “trod upon” or bullied? I haven't been, because that's not what I do. But AFAIC the dude's insulted and condescended to every poster he disagrees with on the board for months as you attempt to earnestly engage. The thing is t...

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

As has been noted in other relevant threads, the overall public and media reaction to S3 remains largely positive. That hasn't changed. Don't believe me, check the year-end lists. Any one poster's reaction is their own opinion, and they are entitled to it. As for the state of the forum - as has also...

Re: Black Lodge/White Lodge mythology

I still think the Fireman's House by the Sea is the White Lodge, or as intrinsic a part of it as the Red Room is to the Black Lodge - but what do I know. Still, the portal the gang finds in the woods takes Andy to the Fireman.

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

And, yeah, the TP interest across the board is definitely winding down. Oh, dude. Dugpa has been here long before either of us began posting and will likely be here long after. It ebbs and flows with activity. But as for the outside world, as other people have noted since your post, it definitely h...

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

I was thinking maybe there should have been a thread specifically for the disappointed and satisfied exchanging views, but seems the conversation is already dying down. Looks like TP:TR didn't hold that many people's attention for very long, it might be too late for a thread like that now. Your beh...
