Re: Episode 1

Something I always think of when I watch this episode, but something that may be bloody obvious to even the casual viewer, is what exactly is the motive for Jacques spiking Ed's drink? Surely he wouldn't have had the foresight to suspect that a fight would break out any moment, or maybe it's just a...

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

Mulholland Drive: The Return. Just calling it in case I'm right. I always felt like Inland Empire was a kind of thematic sequel to MD. Just the whole plot of an actress losing her identity in a movie role felt like it could've happened to characters in MD, had it continued as a series and more abou...

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

I wonder if anybody has mentioned this. S3 has at least one Arthurian reference - Lancelot Court - and I believe another, correct? I was watching "Knightriders" the other day, a movie I'd never viewed despite being a Romero fan. (SPOILER) The movie's characters are inspired by the King Ar...

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

I personally have no qualms with TP having a new season on Netflix -- I'd just hate for the entire season to get released at once. That model seems to work well with certain shows (OITNB, Stranger Things), but I really enjoyed having a week to sit with each individual episode of S3.

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

There's still no guarantee they'll want Twin Peaks for this, but CBS' new streaming service needs marquee content *badly* after the weak performance of CBS All Access. With David and Mark still leaving the door open, it wouldn't surprise me at all if CBS/Showtime greenlit season 4 to add to the all...

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

This is just blind speculation on my part, but I wonder if the all the CBS/Viacom merger stuff would potentially be hindering any talks with Lynch/Frost over a new season. The fact that Showtime canceled Ray Donovan seems to not bode well for the chances of a Season 4, I think. Also, the reports of ...

Re: Part 15 - There's some fear in letting go (SPOILERS)

Not sure if this is relevant to anything, but one thing that always stick out to me about Norma's interaction with Walter is his insistence on the Double R restaurants carrying Norma's name ("Norma's RR Diner"). Norma refuses obviously, but I can't help but think this is somehow in contras...

Re: The biggest problem with The Return - the fear/mystery element largely missing?

I think Mr. C might have been more of a Windom Earle re-do than any sort of recreation of BOB/Leland. That probably wasn't Lynch/Frost's intent, but Mr. C's quest for JUDY was primary narrative thrust of S3, much the same as Windom Earle's search for the Black Lodge structured the last 6 or so eps o...

Re: LMFAP original season 3 script page!

I think maybe the original idea was an unnerving symmetry. This is done also in The Missing Pieces - the trio of scenes where LMFAP repeats the line of returning home. But I'm glad we got what we did, too. Mike's repetition of his Fire Walk With Me poem is, and this is the real risk of the idea of ...

Re: What would a Season 4 be about?

Might see a "Many Sons of Newark" style flashback into the past where Harry, Hawk, Hank, Ed, Norma etc are high schoolers in the late 60s/early 70s, Leland and Sarah a young couple new to town getting ready to have a baby, Ben cheating on Sylvia with Doc Haywood's wife, etc, while Coop ja...

Re: LMFAP original season 3 script page!

Now I am curious what the original plans were for Philip Gerard -- maybe he was only supposed to appear at the end of ep. 17, where he recites his poem and guides Cooper to Philip Jeffries?

Season 4: Shelly falls into a deep depression when "Invitation to Love: The Return" premieres and largely abandons it's late 80's soap opera roots.

Re: Twin Peaks and Watchmen

Watchmen most closely resembles Lindelof's own Leftovers in its structure and post-crisis alt-present world, as well as Westworld in its puzzle-box withholding of twists as well as sci-fi topicality. I haven't listened to the podcast yet, but episode 6 of Watchmen seems to be indebted to Twin Peaks...
