Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

I agree that there are a lot of plot holes in this story. But to be honest, I don't think they matter all that much. It pretty much goes with the territory. Almost anytime you create this huge, complex narrative, the plot holes become inevitable. Since 99.9% of the audience either doesn't catch the...

Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

It’s pretty convoluted, that’s for sure. I still have doubts about how much L/F thought this kind of stuff through. In retrospect, it seems pretty obvious that Gordon and Albert were much further ahead of the audience than most of us initially assumed. For instance, given the Lois Duffy history, the...

Re: Part 17 - The past dictates the future (SPOILERS)

the more i've seen and thought about the show my interpretation is more and more becoming that there's a straight path from beginning to end in Cooper's journey ín which he ultimately succeeds. this is much more in line with Lynch's other work in which wisdom is gained after a hard struggle which l...

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

I’m still not quite sure what to think of the “not where it counts” bit, but there’s definitely a lot going on there. First we have avowed pacifist Albert having gunned down a person, a colleague (are tulpas an exception to his philosophy?). I’m not passing judgment on him — it was self-defense — bu...

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

I didn't call you a victim, and I have no interest in telling you how to feel. You can do whatever you want. But I do think you're being taken for a rather trollish ride. I also have no interest in saving you from anything - I just think it's a waste of time and an ugly, frustrating scene to watch....

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

I don’t necessarily share LateReg’s interpretation of that line, but there has certainly been a lot of metatext to Gordon’s character from the beginning. It seems strange that anyone would debate that. Him being Cooper’s boss mirrors his mentorship of Kyle (and Laura Dern and Chrysta Bell, in the ne...

Frankly, there also isn't much impetus to post a lot when a ton of the traffic is in this thread and driven by a couple random folks fancying themselves the umpteenth iteration of Plain-Talkin' Truth Teller and bullying other posters, who seem to inexplicably allow themselves to be trod upon while ...

Re: Parts 1 & 2 - My log has a message for you & The stars turn and a time presents itself (SPOILERS)

Is Otis the only person is season 3 to call the doppelganger "Mr. C"? I'm trying to think who else does - I think Ray calls him Cooper and Chantal calls him boss. It would be kind of wild if what may have became the most popular moniker for this character is only ever said once, by such a...

Re: Theories & Speculation (SPOILERS)

Just posted this in the Part 18 thread, but figured I’d cross-post here given the lack of conversation lately. I don’t yet have a theory, but in the hopes of spurring some, here’s something I just noticed and haven’t seen discussed before. So we all know by this point that the dead guy in Carrie Pa...

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

Some more thoughts, having watched all the extras twice: I know some have insisted that a Gordon/Tammy romance was intended to be subtext. The BTS footage refutes this. Although DKL jokes about this at one point, everyone else in his closest inner circle responds like it’s a one-time joke they’ve ne...

What is the deal with Tommy’s stomach (assuming that is Tommy)?! He seems to have some chestburster action going on! C0478DFD-1F0A-4668-B217-CD92D8D82519.jpeg Is that black creamed corn, a Bob-orb, or something else entirely? Not to mention that his flannel shirt has a distinctly Woodsman-esque qual...

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

As far as goofs, MT rightly notes that such flubs are an indelible part of film history going right back to the beginning of the medium. Whether you view them as fun trivia, charming quirks, or little distractions that detract from your enjoyment, they’re inevitable. I think this production overall,...

Re: Kyle MacLachlan sounding far less optimistic about more Twin Peaks

If it happens, it happens, and if it doesn't, it doesn't. It's all about how the fish bite. That’s pretty much how I always felt about the original series continuing as well. Episode 29 was a great ending to me (even though I know DKL has said he felt differently). Part 18 is a great ending. I thin...

Re: Kyle MacLachlan sounding far less optimistic about more Twin Peaks

I imagine that now, even DKL and Mark being seen in public together (they had their preliminary conversations for this show at Musso & Frank’s) would immediately become entertainment news fodder and lead to rampant speculation. The scrutiny would be much higher for a new season from the get-go, ...
