Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

God, a couple of years back, who'd've thought that one day in the not-too-distant future we'd be hotly debating Lana Milford as a character of some importance regarding Season 3 of Twin Peaks.

To quote Jeffrey Beaumont, "it's a strange world" ...

Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

If you hate the book, want to return it, are disappointed in Frost; are worried about the new series... please continue to post those feelings here in the Forum. We're all here in a forum talking about a show (and movie) that are over a quarter of a century old. We're doing that is because we love ...

Re: Does Anyone Dislike Episode 29?

How can you say Windom Earle is some sort of redundant aspect of the episode, when he was, bar Cooper, the most important element that led to the Black Lodge?! Moreover, it's not like the episode took its sweet time to wrap up his storyline (not that I'm complaining - I think his undoing at the han...

Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

hell I just skip from the killer reveal episode to the series finale when I rewatch the show anymore This hurts my heart. I love those episodes. I am sad now. Me too (love those episodes). I am, too (sad). But I love it how he puts it - "no trumped up drug charges to keep flannel wearing coope...

Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

I like how the guy arguing that changing Nadine's maiden name "opens the door" for, like, Cooper to be turned into a mailman instead of an FBI agent is accusing other people of being absurd. I like how the guy justifying an author just arbitrarily and blatantly changing stuff of his own p...

Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

Well, these are most certainly BIG, IMPORTANT things in the show (unless one considers anything that came post Laura's killer revelation to be a little, trivial thing). So much for the common sense theory ... There are many things that occurred in the series that are not mentioned in the book. The ...

Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

The inconsistencies just seemed minor irritations to me until the end of the book. When the "archivist," Major Briggs, brings up Windom Earle, he just brings up the backstory given in the show. Former partner and mentor to coop, went nuts confined to a mental hospital etc, like he has no ...

Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

if you change a "small" thing, who's to say that a "large" one is safe? Anyone with common sense. That depends on what's your understanding of a "common sense". Mine certainly doesn't entail an author of the original work changing around stuff when he returns to the sa...

Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

Hey, y'all! What if Cooper never even entered the Lodge, never returned from it Bob-possessed/as a dark dopelganger and, hence, never smashed his head into the mirror? What if those are just irksome little details that we the silly ones are hung up on but really shouldn't be as they stand in the wa...

Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

My increasing suspicion (all gut and no insider knowledge) is that the episodes up to the revelation of Laura's killer will count, along with bits and pieces of the rest season two and all of the movie, but a lot of the 'filler' in between is going to be regarded as disposable fluff to be used or i...

Like I said, if all this eventually transpires as Frost's trick he played on the faithful fans, I'm buyin' the man a lunch! :)

Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

A GREAT couple of posts before this one. I especially like the thought about the book being more appealing to the casual (I would add breezy) kind of fan. Kudos, guys!

Didn't you mean to ask me if I took my pills? That would somehow be more appropriate regarding the nice little tone of our "fan conversation".

Re: 'The Secret History of Twin Peaks' novel by M. Frost 10/18

At this point being surprised Lynch doesn't get wholly embedded in the minutiae of deep lore and continuity is like walking into a casino and being shocked gambling is going on in the establishment. He seems to have had the same hands-off approach to the tie-ins and similar material in 1990-91. Hey...

Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

In addition (to LonelySoul), I'm sharing each and every one of your worries regarding such loose attitude to canon (on the creators' side, of course).
