Re: Episode 3

It may be purely an editorial coincidence, but I believe that the few times Dale is seen with an alcoholic beverage, the camera never actually shows him imbibing. Funnily enough, this was something that struck me as I watched through one time & I wondered if that spoke to his character at all. ...

Re: Episode 3

As some other posters in this thread have noted, this really is such a strong episode. The funeral (capped off by Shelly’s hilariously ghoulish reenactment, a wonderful little character moment), Harry’s speech about the evil in the woods, the graveyard scene with Jacoby, and so many more. The scene ...

Re: Episode 2

This is an instance of something I felt happened a bunch in S3, where so much of the I guess "sanctified" interpretations of things were flouted in favor (unsurprisingly) of Lynch's original meanings, there all along but not yet reaffirmed. It’s crazy to rewatch this early stretch of the ...

Re: Episode 2

BTW, who do people think the Red Room “Laura” actually is in this episode? Later media (E29, FWWM, TR, even E16’s repurposing of the E2 scene) seem to present Laura in the Red Room as simply being the real Laura’s spirit. However, it seems pretty clear that Lynch’s initial intention was more complic...

Re: Twin Peaks Season 3, Star Wars, JJ and Fan Service

Finally watched Rise of Skywalker and had prepped myself to be disappointed because of bad reviews, and I LOVED it. I’m scratching my head as to why many reviews were so critical. I feel like some critics disdain anything that comes across as nostalgic in sequels regardless of quality. Instead of j...

Re: Episode 2

That opening dinner scene reminds me so much of many of the long lingering shots in TR (Roadhouse sweeper, etc.). It plays slightly more conventionally only because it has credits rolling over it. I’m really noticing and loving the use of “one-ers” this time around. I believe the entire scene of Coo...

Re: Episode 1

That “Help me” moment has always been one of the more confounding touches in this episode. I wonder whose decision that was. Dunham’s? Frost’s? It’s especially weird because the voice doesn’t seem to be Sheryl Lee. Maybe it was such a last minute choice she wasn’t available? But that doesn’t even ma...

Re: The Pilot

The Roadhouse/Book House stuff is definitely weird. Obviously L/F hadn’t planned it out in detail yet. But based on what we later learn....the Roadhouse is owned by the Renaults and is used as a drug running front. Yet it’s also a haven for “the bikers,” several of whom are also Bookhouse Boys. Who...

Re: The Pilot

I think as I rewatch, I’ll also do a running feature on Cooper’s coffee intake and food fetishes, for fun and future reference... — A tuna fish sandwich on whole wheat; a slice of cherry pie (which he describes as “worth a stop” and “incredible”; he tells Albert it’ll kill him); and a cup of coffee ...

Re: The Pilot

Started a rewatch today. Seemed like ideal timing, being grounded at home and all. First time I’ve revisited the original series since TR aired. TR didn’t color my rewatch of the Pilot too much, but Cooper driving past the “Welcome to Twin Peaks” sign took on an ominous/tragic air. Perhaps it alread...

Re: Episode 1

Something I always think of when I watch this episode, but something that may be bloody obvious to even the casual viewer, is what exactly is the motive for Jacques spiking Ed's drink? Surely he wouldn't have had the foresight to suspect that a fight would break out any moment, or maybe it's just a...

Re: Season 3, The First Draft - Speculation etc.

FWIW, I take his answer about Mr. C’s phone call as pretty definitely stating that the person on the other end of the line is Judy/Joudy impersonating Jeffries in order to find Briggs. I'm curious why you think that? Not disagreeing, would just love more of your thoughts on it. I remember the big t...

Re: Conversations With Mark Frost: Twin Peaks, Hill Street Blues, and the Education of a Writer

I can’t recall if anyone has mentioned Appendix C, the letter to Ed Victor, presumably circa 1990 (he alludes to the first season just having been finished). Clearly he had TSHoTP, or an untitled version of it, worked out in pretty good detail from VERY early on. It’s actually kind of incredible to ...

Re: Season 3, The First Draft - Speculation etc.

Finally digging into the chapter on TR (after having flipped around in it and read the tidbits in the forums here). It’s interesting that Frost, who had no real involvement in FWWM, was the one who advocated for Desmond’s return. He says Lynch didn’t show Frost anything in post, but Duwayne would oc...
