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

But seriously, how many times have the besotted said, ‘This isn’t the thread for gushing’ after gushing, then saying ‘each to their own’ then not leaving each to their own? Rhetorically. It’s been a lot. The name of the thread was not “Profoundly Disappointed- change my mind!” And even if it was, n...

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

Why Can’t People Who Weren’t Disappointed Leave This Thread Alone :?: Sylvia, take a look at the actual thread. People on both sides of the divide were actually having a reasonable, calm and (I felt) intelligent discussion back and forth about the show, not slinging insults. I certainly didn't star...

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

Anyone who slams The Wire is delusional. Soooo yeah, if you’re using ‘mainstream good tv’ -I don’t watch tv, so I’m not judging other shows either way- That's your prerogative, but I think if you don't watch other what are considered 'prestige TV shows' like Game of Thrones, Westworld, Fargo, Breaki...

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

^ wrong, actually. We had good, solid, evidentially based theories that we talked about daily for decades with almost full consensus, on everything. Consensus on some ideas, sure. But there's been wild-ass theorizing on all manner of things for decades. Did everyone agree with John Thorne's (was it...

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

David Lynch *is* prestige TV. He and Frost, already prestigious from his Hill Street Blues acclaim, was possibly the first to deserve that title. He is no longer indie, he is no longer the adventurer rebel. He has access to massive audiences, corporate support, because of his respected brand of del...

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

I used to think Carrie Page was not Laura but some twisted reflection of her, just as Cooper is irrevocably altered upon crossing over and Diane becomes Linda. I also thought Cooper and Diane quite clearly cross over into another, WKLP-less timeline on the road after going those many miles and reach...

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

I've made it about halfway or more than halfway through Out 1. Lost track around December due to the holidays. I need to dive back in and finish it. Should've done it quickly but fortunately there are some detailed recaps out there - I am not starting from the top again, I've had to do that once bef...

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

I'm glad I wasn't the only one reminded of Rivette and Out 1 in this discussion. I need to finish that. I agree Season 3 is kind of the antithesis of the current prestige TV mode of studied perfection, down to many deliberately cheesy FX. It is perfected on many Lynchian levels, but his standards an...

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

But the White Lodge described by Major Briggs not does match with what was show in The Return The White Lodge described by Major Briggs also doesn't match where Major Briggs was shown to be in his flashback in Season 2, on the jungle throne. And Lynch just said the Lodges' appearances are largely s...

Re: Season 3 Magazine Coverage and Articles Worldwide

Sorry, didn't know where else to put this. Johnny Jewel of Chromatics is hyping 5/21 (TPTR's first airdate) with this, but their new album may not be out til fall.

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

Yes, I've seen that interview. I still think it was the White Lodge or WL-adjacent for two reasons. Number one, that interview is translated from the French and the translation is actually pretty imperfect in a lot of places. And number two, Lynch's commentary tends to skew away from a definitive an...

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

Funny you should mention - Picnic at Hanging Rock is actually exactly what it reminded me of at the time. I found those scenes gorgeous and spellbinding - and incredibly satisfying as a longtime fan, because I felt (and feel) certain that where that white-gold portal led, and where Andy was subseque...
