Re: What's your favourite scene from The Return?

I like the sick girl scene too, but feel it would have benefitted from just about anybody else attending on it aside from Ashbrook. He didn't belong. Andy or Hawk would have been preferable. The scene, like many in the series, felt like a nugget Lynch had in a drawer somewhere and decided to fish ou...

Re: Poll: Worst Roadhouse performance

I can't believe ten people said NIN was the worst. It's not a great song by any means, and the staging wasn't very good, but Trent's the best artist on that list above, by a wide margin.

Re: What's your favourite scene from The Return?

If I had to pick one main favorite, it would be the Woodsman's poem. That introduced a welcome sense of horror to the series which needed it at that point, but overall was too lacking in it. I can't say something positive about the show without bringing in a negative, which is that while that scene ...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

I thought the conclusion was that there is only one packaging option. I’ve only ever seen the one, and that’s what everyone seems to have gotten. Not sure where the references to multiple packaging options came from. I've found definite mention of a cheaper slipcase version that came out after the ...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

I've gotten around to looking at ordering options for this online (Blu-ray), as I cannot find it in any store. I'm finding people mentioning that it has a deluxe packaging and a regular packaging. It looks like the deluxe packaging is the one that pulls apart to reveal Dougie, all cardboard. What's ...

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

"Fire Walk With Me" has Cooper - on several planes of reality, trying to save Laura Palmer. That's a bit of a stretch in how it could relate to this show. This show itself gives no specific foreshadowing that trying to save Laura is Cooper's primary purpose; only after the fact do you rea...

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

I haven't yet read "The Final Dossier" (so don't spoil it please, but I don't have high hopes because of the last book), nor have I rewatched the final two parts in full. However, whether one calls it time travel or believes it was a failed attempt, the idea actually to save Laura comes ou...

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

You found the ending of part 17 to be a nadir? Why? I really liked the whole last part of that episode. How can you question that someone would dislike that very controversial episode which ends with Cooper pulling a ridiculous, out-of-left-field "Back to the Future" move and apparently u...

Well, Trouble is kind of nepotism. I didn't know "Out of Sand" was made for the show; I guess I had just read it was performed before.

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

As far as the songs, perhaps my main disappointment is that not one of them was created specifically for the show. It would have been nice to have had an original Badalamenti and/or Lynch composition, whoever performed it, or an original song from Lynch familiar Reznor. It just felt like a missed op...

Recall that Blake was also accused of killing his wife. Definitely a weird parallel. O.J.'s messed up.

Re: The Random Twin Peaks Thread

Really just a random tangential Lynch thing. Be sure to watch the Fox O.J. special that just aired -- an unaired 2006 interview in which O.J. essentially confessed to the murders (posing it as a "hypothetical" to retain deniability). He references a figure named "Charlie" (Bob?) ...

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

You're right about the deep introspection that the show can generate. And yes, compared with many other shows and movies, it's got a lot of unique ideas and cool imagery that get the mind turning in a way that other stories simply do not. However, for me at least, that fact only piles on more frust...

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

^^I share a few, but not all, of your disappointments. My problems with it stem from issues the show had in and of itself, less of how it related back to the original. I actually believe it would potentially have fallen more flat had he tried to replicate the moods and rhythms of the original exactl...

Re: Who is Alice Tremond?

My going theory for a while now has been that some of the Lodge spirits operate on what TV Tropes calls "Blue and Orange Morality" - meaning they aren't easily classified as good or evil or even "gray" so much as they just operate by a set of rules that we don't understand. That...
