Re: Diane (SPOILERS)

As it's thrown out there and never mentioned again, it probably has no deeper significance.

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

I think it shows remarkable writing craft to think Lynch and Frost must have sat and discussed whether or not doppelgangers would have properly functioning testicles. They had to have that conversation, right? Otherwise how could BadCoop father a child? Man, the sheer depth of world building they we...

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

Anyone 'Disappointed' folks going to the UK Peaks Fest this weekend? Not sure how I would feel. Think being surrounded by so much positivity might make me want to re-enact the Civil War.

Re: FINAL POLL!!!!!!! Your Reaction to The Return as a Complete Work

If there are two breadcrumbs, that's the beginning of a trail. One crumb offers nothing, no direction or even an indication whether it's a trail at all.

Re: FINAL POLL!!!!!!! Your Reaction to The Return as a Complete Work

We do actually know what BadCoop wants, we just don't know why and, as a result, the stakes are non-existent. Maybe 'Playing Card' borrowed one of his Willie Nelson CDs and he wants it back?

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

I just mashed my own brain by thinking "Instead of an 18 part TV show, what if L&F had made 9 TP films?"

Re: Dougie Jones Discussion

It's banal to say that if Cooper had woken up after two episodes S3 would have been a "joke". If L&F had wanted him to wake up then, the story would have clearly gone in a different direction. Maybe Cooper would have been involved in actually trying to track down BadCoop. It might have...

Re: Season 3 Magazine Coverage and Articles Worldwide

Of course they have ideas for another season - it will be about living inside a dream. But who is the dreamer, etc.

Re: An apologia for Sarah

I suppose asking why Sarah hasn't been arrested for killing a guy is just me not accepting S3's radical re-writing the rules of narrative. Then she could be in the cells when BadCoop came to town and, well, imagine the theories!

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

We don't really know why Fenn was holding out. She's unlikely to have seen a script much in advance - if at all - so it is more likely to have been about size of the role or money. Actor's scale rates are available online. I imagine her scenes could have been filmed in a day, and if so it's possible...

Re: Mark Frost's Contributions to TP:TR (Speculation)

If Frost does a book tour, someone should raise their hand and say "I have a question for Mark" and then just get up and leave. See how he likes it.

Re: So is there anyone else who prefers The Return to the original?

"He's always been cool" made me well up, as did a couple of other scenes but I can't use that as any kind of barometer. The line about James was a response to the fact that we were here, again after so many years. How wonderful! Little did I know at that point where we were actually going....

Didn't you hear, TR is a "parable about never being able to go home."
