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

I can't see myself watching the original run or Fire Walk With Me any time in the near future. Season 3 sorta drained my passion for the show. If David Lynch doesn't give a shit about it then why should I? I recall that interview from some years back that had Lynch, Madchen, and Kyle. At the end the...

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

I do find it odd that a lot of people who found the third season disappointing seemed to enjoy the last couple episodes. To me it was trash, through and through. The last episode was just an extra kick to the teeth and a "Haha, you thought these past 17 hours might have meant something? How stu...

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

So according to Sabrina Sutherland on the reddit AMA, almost everything that was shot appeared in the final cut. And Lynch added material during filming, that was run past Frost who could say yes or no (and apparently always said yes). That explains a lot. Did anyone ask her why this season totally...

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

Like many others in this thread, I have been pretty underwhelmed by this new season. I recently made a brief video talking about David Lynch's self-indulgence in THE RETURN, particularly when it comes to the character of Gordon Cole. Here's a link to the video if you have any interest: https://www....

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

Were expectations too high? If Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John-Paul Jones got together as Led Zeppelin to record a new album, what are the chances it would equal (or even better) their 1970s albums? Pretty low I suspect. On what basis did we presume that Lynch and Frost would be equal to the task...

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

Thinking back, it strikes me as particularly and purposefully cruel to finally have Coop come back with the iconic "I am the FBI." (which fans of the season as a whole collectively shit themselves over after belittling the disappointed crowd for just wanting nostalgia) only to have him pre...

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

Not to harp on it, but I do find it funny that people think we all just wanted the same show we had in 1991. I never asked for nor expected that. What I did expect was something at least similar to Fire Walk With Me, but we didn't even come close to getting that. We got an aimless series of vignette...

Re: Recut of TPTR

I'd absolutely love a recut or fan edit of this. However, it's such an absolute mess with no running narrative connections other than the Dougie Jones stuff that it seems impossible, or at least an extremely daunting task. And now that I think about it, the ending would negate any kind of recut anyh...

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

"There's a sort of evil out there. Something very, very strange in these old woods. Call it what you want. A darkness, a presence. It takes many forms but... its been out there for as long as anyone can remember and we've always been here to fight it." Well Harry, that evil won and there's...

I quote MST3K...

Mike: "So guys what do you think the message of the story was?"

Crow: "Don't watch it."

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

There comes a point when "leaving it up to interpretation" simply does become lazy writing. Especially when you have so many plot threads and characters just tossed to the wayside. There's nothing clever about what we got here. He had no intention of clearing up any of the sub plots, and c...

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

I attempted to read some of the main thread, but I can only take so much of this being called "the most incredible 2 hours of television ever" before it sets off my gag reflex. Look, I'm not an idiot. I realize it's all subjective. It's just that I have a tough time understanding all the l...

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

That was an absolute shit fest, plain and simple. I mean, what else can be said? Wasted time and wasted opportunity. A deliberate slap in the face to every Twin Peaks fan who can see past the bullshit being spewed onto the screen and not just mindlessly praise it. It really does seem as though Lynch...

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

For the first few episodes, I found myself thinking about the show a lot during the week. I got caught up in theories and the meaning of certain scenes. Talking with a co-worker about it every Monday. I quickly realized it was pointless. That these characters, scenes, and stories were going no where...

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

All the Cooper stuff was cool. It was extremely lame how he just snapped back and rendered the last 15 hours of Dougie kinda pointless, but whatever. Everything else was just... Eh... definitely not the worst. But boy, this close to the end, it makes you wish there had been a bit (a lot) more substa...
