Re: Part 8 - Gotta light? (SPOILERS)

Cheap shots aside, I've been thinking the same... I think that we see Sarah's story as a cautionary tale of sorts, as the example of a frocust hosted in a person whose life eventually got so wrecked, so painful, that the critter was successfully incubated. The others... are out there. Dormant. For n...

Re: New Stand-alone Parts of Twin Peaks?

I wonder if any viewers have ever looked at any of the 100% genuine video art of the type you might find in Tate Modern Art Gallery. It is pretty far out there and not much of it does anything for me, but Twin Peaks espesh The Return/S3 seems to be art with characters, an atmosphere, a narrative, i...

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

Final Fantasy X-2. And last year I found XV to be even more of a jumbled mess, approaching the platonic ideal of a jumbled mess, but it worked with its own characters and setting, so, who cares. It was honestly an appalling experience and I'll still tell tales of my increasingly hallucinated playthr...

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

That's part and parcel of building upon established characters and storylines, tho. Established for decades, even. I've read and promptly forgotten so much outrageous crap, but watch me still gleefully spew bile over one specific videogame sequel from 2002...

Re: The deceased dugpa spoiler thread's partial mirror

Did anyone get wind of when they shot the red room stuff? And the Roadhouse scenes, were they in Washington or on a Roadhouse set later on? Thanks in advance to anyone who might help

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

I went through Wikipedia's Deus ex machina page after his reply and I found a couple of interesting quotes to mumble over, in addition to the basic confirmation of the fact that Freddie's intervention (or the Fireman's trough Freddie, if you will) was intentionally jarring and out of left field: Ari...

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

Both? Some were very likely older thoughts (like the confirmation that Steven didn't shoot Becky, that must've come up while plotting the show), some sounded like cheerful freestyling (the excellent Dick Tremayne answer, for one), the rest... who knows. For example, I assumed he'd made a mistake in ...

Re: Thoughts on 'The Autobiography of F.B.I Special Agent Dale C

I'm leaning toward Diane proper! MLMT always felt like a file compiled after Coop's disappearance, and it would be odd to wait 4-5 years to do so?

Coop himself also probably qualifies as unreliable narrator. Diane (either) is an added unreliable editor :mrgreen:

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

"Good-bye, my son." How could Mr C possibly know? Did Richard tell him? Then, how could Richard possibly know, when not even the mother had no clue? Not sure what you mean. Mr. C knew because Richard said that his mother was Audrey Horne. Richard himself may not have ever figured out that...

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

Thank you! I was talking about it just yesterday with friends... the way we saw it, Tammy's comment that Audrey never tested for paternity, maybe because deep down she knew basically boils down to three major options... 1. straightforward way out: Tammy is left wondering why Audrey didn't test for p...

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

I don't like it either, not one bit, but at least the connection via My Prayer is still there. It's not as literal as "that frocust is literally in the room" but there is still something there, and we're invited to wonder what. I think you’re underestimating what an emotional, complex posi...

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

It's normal to wish the best for our fave character and see them as the third protagonist of the show and for them to somehow have superpowers that make them proactive and successful in a show that is very pointedly not about "getting what one wants" or even accomplishments in general. Hec...

Re: Mark Frost Q&A

I remember entertaining a similar thought after reading TSHOTP, and I think several friends shared the sentiment... Something along the lines of "Oh look, I'd bought the narrative of him being the grounding force to Lynch's oddities, and maybe it was true 25 years ago, but look at him go now. M...
