Re: One year later - how are we feeling?

Well, obviously Lynch and Frost had to make do without Ontkean. It would have absolutely been more impactful to have Harry present instead of Frank, without any doubt in my mind. That being said, they could've done a Donna and just blanked him. 'Here's his brother, take him . Where's Harry? Oh, he m...

Re: One year later - how are we feeling?

I'll always say that what they did with James in The Return is one it's best through-lines. They wrapped up a really nice reference to the original, ("Just You") while bringing it new context, meaning and weight. That's what sequels should do. From James' awkward teenage song in a love tri...

Re: One year later - how are we feeling?

I love it, and will forever. After distance, and a lot of thought, the show just sings.

Re: New Johnny Jewel album of unused/unreleased TP score

Some of these tracks are great. It does make you wonder how much he knew, or did he title these after he saw the show? Waking Up , Purgatory and to a lesser extent, Tommorow is Yesterday pretty explicitly reference the themes in The Return. Wow, Red Door sounds just like something from S2's Harold p...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

I got the DVD, not the Blu Ray. I'm still amazed with the clarity of the image. Sure, there was compression in the stream, but it's beautiful. I noticed it more than any DVD I've owned. The BTS insights are fascinating. When Lynch describes Freddie's fight with Bob, it sounds so much more visceral, ...

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

Spoiler:
I'm still not convinced as to the neccessity of the book, but Frost really gets into the feeling of the first two seasons. Really well. He should have single-handedly written all of Albert's dialogue this season, his personality just leaps out.

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

I really don't understand this book. If Frost is such a 'keeper of the flame' when it comes to the show's ambiguity and lack of conclusivity, then what is he wanting to achieve with this book? The Secret History was wayward, and sometimes intruging, but it was a perfect opportunity to set up some of...

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

Inland Empire, despite being heavily made-up as it went along, feels so much more cohesive than The Return. It's much scarier and more disturbing; the scene with the homeless people, the "hole in her vagina wall", and the final kick of it (maybe) being just a movie. The Phantom, too. It's ...

Re: The visual aesthetic of the new Twin Peaks

I saw this on Reddit, props to the user Hybries for the translation. It was an interview with Pierre Buffin, director of BUF who created the visual effects for The Return. There are some interesting quotes that stand out: "We did most of the special effect in 3D, like the atomic explosion, but ...

Re: After Kyle, who was the best actor?

After Kyle, I don't think I can just name one. Best performances: -Dana, who was sensitive and beautifully inquisitive. -Seyfried, an intense livewire throughout. -Lillard. Parts 1 & 2 were arguably defined by his tragic and utterly convincing downfall. -Everett, Forster and Brent Briscoe, who a...

Re: The visual aesthetic of the new Twin Peaks

I would have loved it if The Return was shot like Inland Empire. Something about it stands on this strange line between rich and visually stunning, and flat and lifeless. Compare Cooper's dinner with the Mitchum brothers or the New York scenes with Steven and Gersten in the woods or Gordon, Albert a...

Re: Poll: Would you like to see a 4th season happen? (SPOILERS PERMITTED)

Only if it's of a piece, and follows the plot threads of The Return sparingly. I would not want to hear more second-hand details of Major Briggs' inter-dimensional exploits, or protracted exposition. Any further seasons have to feel like they're their own thing, not just a simple continuation. I wou...
