Re: The slow pace of The Return

Lynch's other work doesn't come across as slow paced to me. I think one of the reasons TR feels slow paced is because many of the storylines simply aren't captivating enough. Forster as the sheriff, Dougie outstaying his welcome etc. Agreed. Most of the storylines go nowhere, and throughout them ha...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

I just realized today that the Owl Cave wasn't mentioned at all in Season 3. That was one of mysterious parts of the Twin Peaks mythology and I always wanted to know its history since it was a pretty big deal in Season 2 Lynch and Frost didn't watch that bit of the originals, so I doubt they rememb...

Re: Twin peaks: Nostalgia Fanedit

Every time I rewatch S2, the slump feels less deep and shorter than before. There's at least something interesting going on all the time, and the Windom Earle -plot starts quite soon.

Maybe S3 will become watchable in 25 years, who knows.

The green glove was what put an end to my plans of doing an edit. There is no story, there is no ending, no amount of editing (without access to possible cut material) can fix that.

I don't see it as annihilation, I see it as Cooper being trapped but working on a plan of action so he is ready when he can leave.

Re: Theories & Speculation

I think it's another great example that maybe what we are watching is a dream or a version of reality that Cooper has conjured up with his mind. That is the only explanation that I can come up with that explains all the inconsistencies, plot holes, vague characters, meaningless time wastes and comp...

Re: General Discussion on the New Series (All Opinions Welcome)

A relevant character, one shown to have a good heart using the glove would have made quite a lot more sense. When a meaningless side character beats BOB it means BOB isn't and never was a threat, and isn't important.

Re: General Discussion on the New Series (All Opinions Welcome)

Also, it's not like Twin Peaks has ever subscribed to the kind of strict narrative rules you describe. That is, really, the heart of the problem. It's not like Lynch and Frost went back and examined how the Giant behaved in the original. They just used a same actor as a similar character, without a...

Re: General Discussion on the New Series (All Opinions Welcome)

If the Fireman and the Giant are the same character, something very significant has changed betweeen S2 and S3. Some kind of power balance has shifted, perhaps. I wrote in some earlier topic: In the original series, the Giant clearly says he is only allowed to give Cooper hints, and a limited amount...

Re: Why so little of Grace Zabriskie?

Well... I suppose this is more a topic for the disappointed thread, but since you asked: S3 was Twin Peaks in name only. Lynch and Frost didn't have story to tell with Sarah Palmer so they didn't. Same with Leland. They just didn't. And won't.

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

Total nonsense. It is readily apparent that Frost and Lynch both care about the fans and Twin Peaks. Completely ignoring most of the continuity, dismissing characters such as Cooper to side notes and contradicting every theme and mood in the original speak loudly to the contrary. What they wanted t...

And since this is the Disappointed thread, I’ll add once again that while I can intellectually appreciate the scene on all these levels (and have also come around a bit on the really trippy shooting/editing style now that I have the ability to freeze frame it in HD and appreciate the various compon...

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

A thought just struck me. I had an idea of doing a fan edit of S3, cutting out all useless bits, until the final episodes made it clear it's all useless. But since it was all a fraud just get a budget to do the stories they wanted to do by painting a Twin Peaks logo on it, maybe the solution isn't t...

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

No idea why I just thought of it, but my goodness that Green Glove thing was just plain inept. I think that is one case where it is actually fair to say "you just don't get it". How ironic it is that it's you who just don't get it. Lynch and Frost failed to deliver a satisfying arc for BO...
