Re: Episode 2

BTW, who do people think the Red Room “Laura” actually is in this episode? Later media (E29, FWWM, TR, even E16’s repurposing of the E2 scene) seem to present Laura in the Red Room as simply being the real Laura’s spirit. However, it seems pretty clear that Lynch’s initial intention was more compli...

Re: Episode 1

That “Help me” moment has always been one of the more confounding touches in this episode. I wonder whose decision that was. Dunham’s? Frost’s? It’s especially weird because the voice doesn’t seem to be Sheryl Lee. Maybe it was such a last minute choice she wasn’t available? But that doesn’t even m...

Re: Coronavirus Worries...

As a natural hermit and early overpreparer whenever I catch wind of anything, I'm feeling pretty okay so far, but the sense of national anxiety is palpable. I saw someone put it well, considering that the US is not currently experiencing what China did and what Italy currently is; "We're not ou...

Re: Peaks Fans Top 10 TV shows

Sadly, Mark Frost doesn’t seem to be a big fan of Lost. In the Bushman book, he accuses the show of ripping off a pilot he produced called Forbidden Island (and also goes out of his way to call Carlton Cuse’s Nash Bridges—the show which also gave Damon Lindelof his start—“really average”...he might...

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

The comparison to James Joyce, one issue I had is I don't think Lynch is inspired by him nor has he read him. The comparison has been made quite a few times, and Lynch is at least familiar with him. Here's an example from this interview , by the interviewer, and Lynch responding: Maybe, suggests th...

Re: Episode 17

There is a consistent vein in old Peaks of absurd stereotyping. For instance I recall some scandanavian viewers remarking that some of the Norwegian spoken aloud was actually gibberish. I watched Peaks with a Canadian friend once and he remarked that everything about Canada, including in FWWM, seeme...

Re: Peaks Fans Top 10 TV shows

The LOST love in this thread is great. Also I too was a huge fan of Invader Zim and being a world-weary teen at the time it seems you're destined to have that show stamped onto your heart. Also it seems your Leftovers write-up got snipped in the middle, I would have liked to read it! :)

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

Shocking and disorienting to see COVID-19 infecting every point of interest, excuse the pun.

Lynch has said he doesn't like going outside more than he absolutely has to, so i'm sure he can make hunkering down comfortable.

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

The comparison to James Joyce and some saying Lynch should just become more and more insular - I don't think any such comparison makes sense, nevermind seeming highly fake-pretentious (I don't believe anyone here is a scholar of Joyce, correct me if I am wrong) - is it not possible for the director...

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

I know many will say Twin Peaks - The Return was a critical success and received attention, I just don't feel it took Lynch (and co.) into the mainstream and gaining the sort of credit I want for him. It happened before mostly around 1990 and I did think it could happen again. That mainstream embra...

Showed Jack to two friends,

One loved it, one hated it,

Re: Twin Peaks: From Z To A 12/10 & The Television Collection 10/15 Blu-Ray & DVD Sets

Has anyone watched this all the way through? My wife and I are on episode 13 of the original series and there are numerous digital glitches in the picture and shaky/jerky looking scenes. Could you give specific scenes for reference? The discs that have the old episodes and the Return episodes are m...

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

I am often surprised when people declare that The Return is about nostalgia or deals with such concepts as time as it sounds so vague to me and also I'm just not convinced. I don't think it is significantly ABOUT such a concept although it certainly deals with how much time has passed since 1992. I...

Responding to discussion a page or so back: Yeah, I like the US Office and all, but the UK one really is something else; it managed even to be genuinely successful in emotional effect.

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

Yeah, for chrissakes, please not another home media release. I'm not even through the extra stuff from Z to A (I'm at part 12, Chrysta Bell trapdooring from up the floor super funny btw) and if I buy another one, my husband will go BOB on me.
