Re: The Random Twin Peaks Thread

Certainly is.

I've finished my rewatch now, and am just quietly hoping for more Peaks!

Watching Out 1 has definitely filled the gap though, and I'm also watching Sapphire and Steel for the first time which provides a nice dose of weirdness and WTF moments.

Re: General Discussion on the New Series (All Opinions Welcome)

I do find myself wondering more and more where Season 4 could go. We could see them trying to hunt for Cooper, but would yet another series where they try and find a lost Cooper be satisfying? Maybe I'm simply making peace with the ending- it hints at more story to come, but I'm not desperate to see...

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

That's a great explanation. Everything in the run up to that scene seems super important and fixed by fate to me, but it was a confusing rush to follow. I swung from being very frustrated with Out 1 to loving it within the space of the first episode! The half hour improvisation with random moaning s...

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

Lucy seemed to be confused that someone on the cell phone can be moving into the office when they should be out fishing (she doesn't get that they are portable). However, if there are in fact two versions of every person, then one can be on the phone whilst the other one is somewhere else. That's ho...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

This is my favourite article on the paradoxes of time travel: https://www.csus.edu/indiv/m/merlinos/paradoxes%20of%20time%20travel.pdf Definitely worth a read. I'm teaching general relativity at the moment, and there is certainly no problem theoretically in having time travel. Technologically it's c...

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

Finally reached Part 17 on my rewatch. Fucking hell it's brilliant. Unbelievably good. Loved it the first time, had my mind totally blown, and loved it even more the second time. A few things occurred to me that didn't strike me before: 1) I had forgotten that it is made totally obvious that Cooper ...

Re: An Ever-Growing Collection of Quotes Pertaining to the Possibility of a Season 4

I'd missed that Mark Frost one, thanks. That is really reassuring to me for some reason. I had a really strong sense that there was a deliberate attempt to pause the story, rather than conclude it, and it's great to have that confirmed.

I think they'd do the same thing even if we got another series.

Re: Emmy Nominations thread

As a kid, I genuinely thought that an Oscar meant a film was great. Then Titanic won 11 and I never trusted them again. There is obviously a correlation between getting an Oscar and a film being good, but I've seen some shockingly bad Oscar winners (e.g. Ray, which I had to turn off because it was s...

Re: Part 9 - This is the chair (SPOILERS)

Glad I'm not the only one confused. I had missed the "multiple coordinates", but will reread the Final Dossier. Am totally loving the series on my rewatch. I had already watched Parts 1-9 again, so they were quite fresh in my mind, but I had forgotten how good the next stretch was. Also, I...

Re: Part 9 - This is the chair (SPOILERS)

Reached this episode on my rewatch. I forgot how amazing it was! One of the best single episodes. I'm now confused though. I've always assumed (and this episode sort of confirmed it) that Cooper killed Briggs, and the woodsmen that were accompanying him killed Ruth. In that case, shouldn't he alread...

Re: What's next? What chance do think there is we will see a season 4?

I feel like I really should go to this tour in Australia. It's not everyday you get to see stars from Twin Peaks in your own town. Then again, I find these "in conversation" things to be really annoying in general. Some people ask great questions and get no answers, others ask crap questio...

Re: What's next? What chance do think there is we will see a season 4?

I didn't watch Australian TV this morning, but I assume it was about this thing that popped into my inbox this morning: "In an Australian and New Zealand first, five of the stars of TWIN PEAKS, Sheryl Lee, Kimmy Robertson, Michael Horse, Al Strobel, Dana Ashbrook and the Executive Producer of T...
