Re: The Random Twin Peaks Thread

Ha, that is excellent. And don’t worry, TP (and Jacoby) still fall comfortably within the Tommy Westphall Shared Cinematic Universe(TM) thanks to Fringe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tazGD2aars&feature=youtu.be I've always meant to check out Fringe -- guess I finally have a good reason to n...

Re: The Random Twin Peaks Thread

Russ Tamblyn's character appears at about 3:18 in this General Hospital blooper reel. This clip doesn't seem to acknowledge the character's name, but it's the best I could find. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGJ8MoYOOqM Link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGJ8MoYOOqM for anyone that can't view...

Re: Three Days Later (between ep. 16 & 17)

I was reading an interview with Brad Dukes (author of Reflections: An Oral History of Twin Peaks) and he mentioned that Tricia Brock, the writer of episode 17, never spoke with Lynch about her script. Also, the director Tina Rathborne never discussed this episode with Lynch or Frost. I've read that ...

Re: Three Days Later (between ep. 16 & 17)

The only way I can reconcile this (not that I think this is the intentional effect) is to view everything in the slump as being a shared psychosis. The show is so rich with themes about denial already, so you can easily view these meandering plotlines as desperate attempts by characters to distract...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

I imagine Lynch/Frost probably have a strange relationship to say the least, but the stuff about Lynch not reading his books doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me. Lynch and Frost spent like what, a year or two scripting out Season 3? Lynch likely knew most of what would be in the books without...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

I could actually see that as being a facet/feature of the Diane character -- she was very obviously wearing a wig, both as a tulpa and her "real"-ish self. I'm sure at some point in the narrative it could've fallen off for some level of dramatic effect, maybe right before tulpa Diane meets...

Re: Three Days Later (between ep. 16 & 17)

I feel like, on some level, the decision to jump time ahead three days and not have hardly any characters acknowledge who killed Laura Palmer might've been Lynch/Frost's way of protecting the secret as long as possible. Really, if a script of Leland's wake leaked out, would anyone even be able to te...

Re: Three Days Later (between ep. 16 & 17)

What's always struck me as strange was why not do a LONGER time jump? Why not let a month, 6 months, or a year pass after Leland and Laura's death, and then pick up with these characters after they've had some time to move on with their lives? This would avoid some of the awkward and jarring plot d...

Three Days Later (between ep. 16 & 17)

There are a lot of weird alleyways of thought to go down when contemplating the pitfalls of TP's second season, but lately I find myself having an issue with the three day time jump at the beginning of ep. 17. Many viewers have pointed out how jarring the transition from ep. 16 to 17 is, abruptly sh...

Re: Episode 2

Wow, those are really insightful responses about Sarah! After Season 3, is there any more fascinating Twin Peaks character? My initial impression of Sarah's scene in ep 17 was something like this: Sarah suffers from PTSD, a response to her own denials about Leland's abuse of Laura, her pain at Laura...

Re: Episode 2

Maybe someone has brought this up before -- but it's fascinating to look at the scene where Leland dances with and breaks Laura's framed photograph, even more so after watching Sarah smashing a similar photograph in S3 ep. 17. If Leland shattered the photograph by accident, and cried due to his guil...

Re: General Discussion on Season 3 (All Opinions Welcome)

Just watched Dune for the first time in 15 years, and now I can't help but feel like "we live inside a dream" is somehow a callback to Kyle Machlaclan standing in the desert and yelling "THE SLEEPER HAS AWAKENED!"

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

If we never get a season 4, I'd be more than content with a "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" style special with Lynch and Frost getting coffee and pie and discussing Twin Peaks for an hour or two. And I know Lynch is opposed to explaining his work, but I get the impression that he and Fr...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

If Lynch and Frost ever wanted to write another script, I wonder how often Lynch would float an idea and Frost would say "Uh, well, in one of my books I actually said that...", and proceed to provide some example that conflicts with Lynch's new idea. I suspect that if it was a minor idea ...

Re: What would a Season 4 be about?

I'm cautiously onboard with Twin Peaks 1967, but... what purpose would Laura Palmer (and Cooper) have in 1967? My only thought would be that not only did Laura Palmer choose to die rather than be possessed by BOB (FWWM), but that she is now taking it a step further and preventing her parents from ev...
