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

Wasn't sure about much of the first half of Ep17. The Green Glove Guy v Balloon Bob encounter was risible, but, the last 90 minutes of this journey was absolutely mesmerising. The Diane / Coop / Linda / Richard motel scene was absolutely skin-crawling, as it became apparent that the loveable caricat...

Re: Part 15 - There's some fear in letting go (SPOILERS)

Episode 15 was tremendous. Other than Ep8 (and the first 15 mins of 3), the best of the series so far. Adored the Big Ed / Nadine / Norma sequence. Masterfully directed, this scene, on the surface at least, played out like a trite 'happy ending', a merciful release from the limbo that all three have...

Re: Part 12 - Let's rock (SPOILERS)

I adored ep12 - mystifying, mesmerising and disorienting, no other TV show moves quite so hypnotically. Lynch alternates between exposition and mystification, clarification and obfuscation. The Return is a puzzle for which most of the pieces are missing. We think we're almost getting a handle on thi...

Re: Part 10 - Laura is the one (SPOILERS)

Absolutely loved this episode. Apart from the astonishing Ep8 and the first 15 mins of Ep3, it may be my favourite so far. Short in duration, but so much to enjoy. At every step, this mystifying, elliptical work resonates with truth. Preternaturally still and silent for much of its duration, Twin Pe...

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

It’s interesting how many Brits/Scots are in this thread... Far be it from me to rain on the parade of those who wish to rain on The Return 's parade, (I'm an interested reader of this thread, but have no desire to inflict my enthusiasm on the resolutely disenchanted), but I'm Scottish and much pre...

Re: Part 8 - Gotta light? (SPOILERS)

I rewatched Episode 7, just before Ep8. A remarkable experience, taken as a 'whole', and a testament to how this artwork can only be evaluated as an integrated work (wish I'd had time to rewatch all seven preceding parts). As Lynch was telling us in the Manhattan prologue in Ep1, we must pay close a...

Re: Part 7 - There's a body all right (SPOILERS)

First impression on Ep 7: Really enjoyed it. Loved Laura Dern as Diane. I think she's going to be at the heart of this, and central to DougieCoop's transition back to Dale Cooper. Greatly enjoyed the mirroring of the scene with the two goons and Janey-E ('tough dame') in the scene in the apartment w...

Re: Part 6 - Don't die (SPOILERS)

Just rewatched episode 6 and it's still my least favourite episode so far, by a distance. I've loved almost everything about the first five instalments, so I won't be joining the ranks of the disenchanted just yet, but I found myself strangely alienated by Ep6 (Jeremy Davies' hair and performance ap...

Re: Part 6 - Don't die (SPOILERS)

First impressions: I'm a huge Lynch fan, and I've been completely on board with this so far, but, man, that was tough to watch. The hit and run scene felt gratuitous. We already know Richard Horne is an A grade asshole. The assault in the Roadhouse in Ep5 was more than enough to establish that. Wipi...

Re: Part 5 (SPOILERS)

Peggy Lipton still looks great, and Mädchen looks better than ever. Wow! I agree with regards to Peggy. But for me, Madchen is nothing like the super fresh hottie she was. Of course she can't be blamed and it's been 25 years. It's a fact of life that people do age (which apparantly is also a theme ...

Re: Part 5 (SPOILERS)

Things are really starting to fly now. There was much to like in the first half of this episode (Sizemore smoothly morphing from Dougie's 'buddy' to antagonist was a joy), but the second half was electrifying. So many moments of Lynchian magic. I can almost understand how some people are disenchante...

Re: Parts 3 + 4 (SPOILERS)

I've been meaning to get to this, but haven't had time. I was interested that you mentioned Bacon in connection with the lodge scenes. I'd say that, yes, there's some in there, not least of all with the fleshy head of The Arm, but also in some of the composition. There's also arguably some Bacon in...

Re: Parts 3 + 4 (Spoilers)

First impressions: I absolutely loved the first 20 minutes of Episode 3. Twin Peaks meets Eraserhead. Disorientating, surreal and brain-scrambling. The combination of that weird glitching effect and the incessant thumping on the door was more akin to psychological torture than entertainment, and I h...
