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...

Re: Episode 9

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...

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

Good post, Mr. Reindeer, and your reading of it all seems entirely plausible. Thanks. Despite my rather constant whining these past couple of months, I still haven't been able to tie everything together into a coherent criticism. If the show had been all bad, then it wouldn't have been a problem. Bu...

Re: The visual aesthetic of the new Twin Peaks

one that sticks out a lot to me is the entire introduction of Mister C - from the night time driving to "American Woman" to the entry to Otis and Buella's place to the meeting with Darya and Ray. everything about that scene is great, the night light, the camera angles, the lingering on fa...

Re: So is there anyone else who prefers The Return to the original?

Time elapsed might be the essence here. Just as those of us who prefer the original series could be accused of cozying up in the warmth of our familiar blanket, having grandma read our favourite bedtime story for the umpteenth time, so could The Return's hallelujah crowd be somewhat susceptible to t...

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

So as far as it goes, I'm well aware that those of us who really went for the Return are 'geeking out' over it to an extent that others might well find nauseating and even pretentious, but some of us have held it in quite a while I guess. I really wanted to love this, and although in places I didn'...

Re: Poll: Would you like to see a 4th season happen? (SPOILERS PERMITTED)

To those who enjoyed the return (and maybe even those who only enjoyed the last part) , but who aren't sure about a continuing story, I'd ask what you'd have thought if part 17 had ended season 3, and part 18 had been the premier of season 4. Would you say "This premier was the perfect ending....

Re: Poll: Worst Roadhouse performance

I would hardly vote it worst but I will say Rebekah Del Rio's autotune made her song more frustrating than it should be. It's a long song and a bit samey or repetitive already - though otherwise quite gorgeous - so having that autotune effect where it sounds like a robot is singing every 30 seconds...
