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

Feel free to direct me to all the prestige TV shows that prefigure the middle 20 minutes of Part 8. I would genuinely love to watch them! https://www.esquire.com/entertainment/tv/a54762/the-flaws-of-prestige-tv/ “It’s Not Prestige, It’s Just TV” "Prestige TV" as a label is meant to denote...

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

David Lynch *is* prestige TV. He and Frost, already prestigious from his Hill Street Blues acclaim, was possibly the first to deserve that title. He is no longer indie, he is no longer the adventurer rebel. He has access to massive audiences, corporate support, because of his respected brand of del...

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

If you want to be a total hardass about it, then technically a lot of what we see in The Return is less than radical because Lynch has done it before. However, too few people do what he does, or are able to do it in the same way, or were given the funds to do it on such a scale, so I think to deem ...

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

Red herring, a fish Cooper isn’t particularly fond of, =/= subverting expectations. This is a staple trope of mystery, it can be done masterfully or pointlessly. Sarah’s storyline was “delicious” or at least fun to watch (the hyperbole will always get :roll: here) I guess but only because she was th...

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

One can break new ground and do something radical, and have a drifting, inconsistent season (at least to some). IBy itself making an 18 hour movie is a pretty radical step, although some may be flummoxed by the length. But here's the groundbreaking stuff that I saw: -Pacing: feeding into a growing ...

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

At the end of the day, don't we expect great art to be divisive? It's like the classic scenario where two friends go to a museum of modern art;; whatever one thinks is a work of genius the other thinks of as a piece of utter pretentious garbage. Neither of the friends is right or wrong; the art spe...

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

Part 18 was great for me, too. It just wasn’t symmetrically of quality with the rest. It did not paint the rest of the series with gold like ep 29 and FWWM did. I also burned my TP/Lynch stuff not in protest, or because it was a passing phase, but because 25 years is over half my life and I’m ready ...

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

My reaction’s been more straightforward: last weekend, I took my complete Twin Peaks Blu-Ray box set, my David Lynch movie Blu-ray set, the Secret History, Secret Diary and My Life, My Tapes books and Crazy Clown Time CD to my local charity shop. The new show ended my decades-long affection for Dav...

Re: The Random Twin Peaks Thread

Blake was found guilty (or whatever word salad they use, like with OJ) in a civil trial, but even if they’d gotten out of that, you’re guilty once you do it- not once a flawed and biased system says so. In other random notices, Watching Vegas, the Randy Quaid series- and Vegas, the James Caan series...
