Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

The talk about Cooper looking for the best in everyone reminds me of Bobby's recollection of something Laura said to Dr. Jacoby in the Season 1 ep. "Cooper's Dreams": "...people tried to be good, but they were really sick and rotten, her most of all. And every time she tried to make t...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

I think this is very interesting and I meant to reference it in my previous post. That scene of Dougie's homecoming can seem somewhat incongruous but also fits extremely well for me for a number of reasons that make it perhaps one of the most mysterious moments in the entire series. First, there is...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

I think C) or B) fit best for how I see it. Its amazing how its open for interpretation. Nice topic cappy. Thanks. I was always sort of vexed by Leland's doppelganger from the original finale. Leland in the original series is treated as a case of possession, and FWWM treats him as just a horrible h...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

There were a few poor judgement calls from Cooper, Truman & Sternwood in the Roadhouse too. Leo Johnson declared not fit to stand trial & allowed to return home - tries to kill Shelly a few days later. Leland bailed - kills Maddy almost immediately. At least Cooper & Truman never seem t...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

I think Between Two Worlds gives us a clue as to Lynch’s mindset, re: Leland during the period he was scripting TP:TR. In BTW, Leland—even after twenty-five years in the afterlife—is in complete denial about his own culpability, insisting that it was someone else who carried out those acts (which w...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

I'm still not sure if Leland Palmer's request to Cooper to "Find Laura" is: a) a sincere act on the part of remorseful (good?) Leland, the one who went to the light and saw Laura as he died in S2E16, whose intent is to save Laura from whatever is happening to her in S3. b) a deceitful act ...

Re: Twin Peaks: The Complete Television Collection (Paramount) 10/15/19

I'm not opposed to a theatrical cut of Season 3, but it sounds almost impossible to watch the entire thing in one 18 hour sitting. I could do maybe 5 or 6 hours at once, but even that would be pushing it. Not saying I don't love Season 3 or anything, it's just that I can only binge watch something s...

Re: Twin Peaks: The Complete Television Collection (Paramount) 10/15/19

It would be neat if they finally unearthed the decoy footage of Ben Horne murdering Madeline Ferguson, but I somehow imagine that it's lost or was never properly developed for presentation to begin with. That'd be just about the only thing that could entice me into buying the complete series AGAIN.....

Re: Tarantino criticism

I always felt like that scene in Blue Velvet where Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper) and minions beat up Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) to the sound of Roy Orbison's "In Dreams" was what paved the way for (or even inspired) Tarantino's similar juxtaposition of pop music with ultra-violence, ...

Re: Tarantino criticism

Someone's going to have to explain to me what the cultural value is in narcissistic gonzo revisions of real life tragedy and trauma. I had a similar reaction to Once Upon A Time... Within the context of the film itself, I don't really know what the point is in having a film that sets viewers up to ...

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...

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...
