Re: One year later - how are we feeling?

I am still pretty much where I was at the time, in the disappointed group, and it feels pretty settled right now. I would not retract anything I wrote there, and do not feel like I have anything to add. Pretty much the same view here. I watch a few of the good bits on Youtube from time to time. Yes...

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

F*ckin hell, you still all here? Go out and enjoy the northern hemisphere spring. Just one quick comment about Lynch's "not where it counts" statement. If it is about his own filmmaking, then it just goes to show that the Return was never about Twin Peaks in the first place. He misspelled ...

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

People in this fandom and in DKL criticism/academia overall get very hung up on finding clues and themes, articulable meaning. This is probably one of the most frustrating aspect for those of us who unfortunately ended up on the other side of the fence. Once we'd made our final evaluation of the sh...

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

This felt more like a first exercise in stream of consciousness to cull imaginative ideas without the next step of discipline in streamlining it. You've nailed it. I have no idea why the concept of coherent storytelling is frowned upon by some apologists of The Return. Nor why being in daytime Vega...

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

As far as the whole dropped plotlines thing, it's really only when you get to the consequential plotlines and characters that I feel Lynch dropped the ball, and not intentionally. I highly doubt they planned to have Mr. C be such a flat character who barely goes anywhere, or to make the Woodsmen (e...

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

This thread still up and running? :) I haven't mustered the will to do a rewatch yet (apart from the opening 4-5 episodes in the first month or so). I still expect the good bits to be really good, and the sh*t bits to remain utter sh*t. I'd love to watch the scene at Otis' place, the glass box, the ...

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

And thank you. From what I've seen, I don't think that it's generational or anything. I think it comes down to what you want out of your television/entertainment in general. For me, it's just a taste I've acquired/grown in to. I'm 90% sure that the 17 year old me who watched the Gold Box and wasn't...

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

For me, now that the show is over, I enjoy dipping my toes in to that stuff like the overarching lore more, but I'm not interested in pouring over tiny details. It's just effort and time I don't have or feel the need to devote, especially since others will do it for me and I can just include the th...

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

It's the same with Season 3. I can accept that it is a very flawed work, and I totally understand where almost everyone in this thread is coming from(it's the only thread I read during Season 3 because it provided the best discussion that wasn't just about plot, lore, and minutiae) but I think the ...

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

I really shouldn't be posting here anymore. I genuinely dislike being the grumpy, dissatisfied guy, because it's somewhat out of character. Nor do I wish to be telling fans about how "wrong" they are in liking this show. Hell, I haven't even been close to doing a rewatch of the damned thin...

I just love the opening of this episode. If anyone wonders why people fell in love with the original show, this is one of the answers.

Re: Poll: Worst Roadhouse performance

Man... you guys are breaking my heart. The Sharon van Etten song is my favorite of the whole season. For me, it was a dreadful song/performance wrapping up a dreadful episode!! I can't remember the song, but I detested it at the time. Nor can I remember the episode number, or what preceeded it in t...

Re: FINAL POLL!!!!!!! Your Reaction to The Return as a Complete Work

While I agree that a lot of fans, critics and academics get rathered carried away in their analyses of DKL’s art, projecting their own agendas onto the work (not accusing LateReg of this!), I disagree with your premise stated here that there should be one agreed-upon “consensus.” Art is deeply pers...

Re: Different Twin Peaks podcasts

My preferred podcast throughout the summer was "Suck Professor" on Youtube. One enthusiastic fan (with the odd gap in general knowledge about the show, but with plenty of theories) and one bewildered newcomer. Great infantile banter between the hosts. Not exactly for those who take the sho...

Re: FINAL POLL!!!!!!! Your Reaction to The Return as a Complete Work

To answer the question of this thread, I do believe that The Return is work to be reckoned with, and which will grow in stature over time. It makes everything else look small and formulaic. I don't know where it sits in Lynch's filmography, but it's certainly as great a work of art as I've ever see...
