Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group

Room to Dream was a fast read (audible listen) that I truly enjoyed. Every chapter opened a memory scrapbook of my own life, and I really liked the structure. And it touched on some of the critical things from this thread I think it’s worth noting. * Al Strobel talks about Return wasn’t trying to en...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group

It seems to me like Belushi is just goofing around. If it did screen at the White House, I doubt the President got past the first five minutes. Doesn’t strike me as his cup of tea. Then it was a scripted joke, because the cardboard cutout personalities (don’t know their names) prompt it: “Eight exe...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group

Anyone remember Kimmy saying in a SDCC interview that 45 got a private White House screening of TP3 before anyone else did? Nope. Source? https://youtu.be/MhZd2Ws3WZw Thank BOB it was the first one I thought to search. Not SDCC but Good Morning America. Thank you, for the small things, memory. Know...

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 ...

This episode feels to me the most well-crafted and cohesive of the entire thing - it has a consistent style reminiscent of 50s b-movies etc. I really liked Cooper'...

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...
