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

It's a really strange choice of the creators. It's like if Peter Weir made a sequel to 'picnic at hanging rock' where Miranda appears on the planet Venus which is inhabited by singing otters. Hilarious, but not a serious resolution to the unsolved mystery. I've just got to say, on that note. Whilst...

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

...Lynch and Frost are just doing what they want to do, which seems to be evoking various tones and atmosphere through a series of unconnected vignettes, exploring personal fixations with the atom bomb, 1950s Americana, or aliens, with no regard for audience, narrative or the original Twin Peaks. N...

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

But I think you're trying to apply standards to something that isn't there anymore. The warmhearted town isn't a major current anymore in Twin Peaks; by all accounts it isn't a warmhearted town anymore - just look at Chad if you want personification of that! So it's not depicting it well because it...

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

I know this hasn't been developed yet but, if this is the direction this goes in, I HATE the idea of Laura as some sort of supernatural force, Bob's equal of sorts. I loved Laura because she was a human, a teenage girl, nonetheless who was completely and utterly over-matched but still ultimately di...

Re: Thomas Ligotti

Are there any Ligotti devotees here? Although different voices, what draws me to Ligotti is the same thing that draws me to Lynch. Besides the fact that he is a masterful writer, he dabbles in that same weird area between reality and something not quite real. A destabilization of the psyche. The mu...

Re: Viewer reaction is the same as it was back then (SPOILERS)

I also remember vividly the original run. Lynch and Frost created something that blew people's minds. It was different from anything else on TV. It was a soap opera with a surrealist edge, which even had a show-within-a-show Soap that everyone watched. 25 years later most of the innovations of Twin...

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

Alright- I remind you that I mentioned Better Call Saul ( shot on digital ) and how different it looked from Breaking Bad ( shot on film ). I was much more disappointed between how those two series looked- Breaking bad looking stellar, and Btter Call Saul looking flat and digital- I got used to the...

Nope. Just a friendly wink.

I thought there might be some Bookhouse Boys shenanigans going on.

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

My point was that digital DOES look different from film- but I take your point about Lynch & co. potentially not using ' effects' on the footage- i'd have to hear it from the horses mouth to believe it- the footage looks great to me- but then I'm no expert. Hey Adolphus! I think we're talking a...

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

I think the new series looks great- as far as the " flat, electronic " look- I find that other series shot on digital such as " Better Call Saul " have the same look- I think it's the depth of film ( the richness of the blacks that adds that feeling of depth compared to digital ...

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

I don't know what settings you've got on your TV, but I've been working in post for over 20 years, I've done plenty of grading work, I know what cameras and lenses do and how they affect the final look of a video and I can assure you that what is on screen isn't being made to look 'filmic.' Sure, i...

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

There was one VERY dark overhead shot of the woods this week near the end -- possible preceding the Ben/Beverly scene, or else preceding the immortal sweeping scene. I took it as DKL indulging his IE excesses. Ha! I liked the sweeping scene. I meant IE excesses re: overly dark nearly impenetrable s...

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

Does anyone else find some of the shots too dark? It might be the computer I'm watching it on but there have been 3 or 4 shots so far where I couldn't really see what was going on. There was one VERY dark overhead shot of the woods this week near the end -- possible preceding the Ben/Beverly scene,...
