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

One of the things that I see some people point out as a negative about the show is that it was just a bunch of ideas that David and Mark had built up over the years that have nothing to do with Twin Peaks, but that seems like a good thing to me and something they did with the original series. Wheth...

Re: What Other Directors/Actors Think of Season 3

Jim Jarmusch: "But I think the masterpiece that took the last few years in American cinema is really Twin Peaks: The Return. Eighteen hours of incomprehensible T.V. It wasn’t easy for him, and, by the way, no one will finance David Lynch’s feature films — so, what the fuck, I don’t get it. Tha...

Re: What Did Laura Whisper?

I'd be genuinely surprised if it ever turns out that Lynch and Frost actually decided what she whispers. Exactly. It's just a joke/homage/reference to season 1. Even if I'm sure they haven't thought about it, anyway I'll go and say that she whispers 'we live inside a dream'. I think it's way more t...

Re: Philip Jeffries learned the horrific truth about Twin Peaks before we, the viewers did...

Part 8 seems like the perfect opportunity for Frost and Lynch to indulge a lot of their greatest interests: the occult, historical fiction, innocence vs demonic evil, movies, the 1950s, the atomic bomb. The series as a whole seems like one where they've found a lot of common ground and reached a sim...

Re: Philip Jeffries learned the horrific truth about Twin Peaks before we, the viewers did...

I think the most important line in the world of Twin Peaks comes from some cut footage from the convenience store scene in FWWM. BOB says, "I have the fury of my own momentum." I can assure you that line was written by Frost. A line from a movie not written by Frost was written by Frost?

Re: An apologia for Sarah

I think you're on the money about what they were doing thematically. I think it's frustrating when people interpret it like 'Sarah was the real evil all along', or that Leland was holding her back from perpetrating true evil.

Re: Season 3 clips with old Twin Peaks music (SPOILERS)

It makes it feel very comfortingly conventional, and one of the most interesting things about these episodes was how airy and cold they were. Fantastic stuff! Bad Coop without that music goes a bit to a comical direction, although sure his first scene where he blocked the guy trying to hit him with ...

Re: Parts 1 + 2 (Spoilers)

I find the literalism complaints odd, given it's all on par with what we got in FWWM (I am the arm and I sound like this, the good Coop is in the black lodge, etc).

Re: NON SPOILERS: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Showtime Thread

IMDB has no credibility really; anything that has an online fanbase is severely overrated, and any great challenging films made this century (and therefore not part of the canon yet) are severely underrated. If Coulson didn't film much material (which I assume to be the case given how early in produ...

Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

The tricky thing about critical responses is you have to know what their narrative assumptions and aesthetic values are before taking what they say seriously or not. For example, if they value traditional cause and effect, tight/quick pacing, and generic plot structure, then they probably won't be ...

Jonah wrote:How important are ratings to an outfit like Showtime? All the buzz the revival is generating on social media has to be good for them, even if the ratings aren't huge.

The question is how many people is it enticing to subscribe and whether that number justifies what they've spent on it.

Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

I really hope the ending is reasonably closed. There's a very real possibility that this performs below Showtime's expectations.
