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

I don't think Mr. C ended up simply flat, and I do think his barely going anywhere was what was intended. We're seeing just a few days in the life of a character who has existed without us for 25 years. Like so many characters in The Return, the idea seems to be to drop the viewer into this exact m...

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

The problem with "subverting expectations", a term that has been used as an argument by TP:TR apologists time and time again, is that there are different possible outcomes of doing it. Some are good and some not so good. The next big blockbuster movie could be filmed featuring a 10-second...

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

I think that the term "nostalgia" is a misnomer when it comes to describing people's expectations for S3. The majority of those who watched and enjoyed the original seasons, as far as I can tell, always wanted a continuation to happen. It's not a yearning for something from one's youth tha...

Re: Poll: Do You Understand Now Why S.F. was pissed about her role in The Return?

I understand, but she has much to be proud of. Audrey's arc this season was one of the most talked about and based on the finale, I'd argue one of the most significant. I personally thought it was pretty enthralling and I thought she did a great job. Fenn did a great job and it was a fantastic star...

Re: List of all the unsolved mysteries (SPOILERS)

What year is it? 1970. Laura: Concieved 1970 born 1971 died 1989 aged 18; would've been 43 25 years later in 2014. Cassie: 1945 Laura orb created by Fireman. Becomes 43 in 1970 (assuming 18 in 1945 then 43 1970; picking this over 1988 which full 43 yrs later) ; somebody after her she says as Coop v...

What were the most impactful scenes of TP:TR?

Like it says in the topic's subject. There were plenty of great moments in TP:TR, many of which I can't remember now. I will have to rewatch the whole thing, which I will probably do in a few months as right now the ending is still too fresh in my memory. In the meantime, I am trying to recall the b...

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

Question for the profoundly disappointed: Would you have preferred an alternate scenario for the revival that was more akin to the current iteration of the Star Wars franchise, where a media company basically purchases the rights to the franchise and hires filmmakers who were fans of the original t...

Re: The "We live inside a dream" theory

Of course, 'we live inside a dream' could be just a general statement of Lynch's philosophy of life- it does not necessarily mean Twin Peaks is a dream (though it suggests that possibility). Certainly there are indications that TP operates on dream logic, but I for one never liked that interpretati...

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

I think that Lynch has held a grudge of sorts against the success of the original TP. Perhaps it had something to do with it not being entirely in line with his vision or perhaps for some other unknown reason. this is total bollocks. I agree with many people in here who have problems with this seri...

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

I think some people think Lynch went off script a lot when filming. Also scripts are always written to be too long for the final cut. Looks like Lynch not only added or changed things while filming but really did not do the normal fat trimming. this should have been a 13 ep run. when we watch peopl...

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

I feel like Diane did travel with Cooper into the alternate timeline, or at least partway into it. They found the spot that was ripe with electricity, drove into it, and suddenly it was night, an indication that they had both gone "elsewhere". Then Diane saw an alternate version of hersel...
