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

I am relieved to see that I am not alone in being disappointed with the explanations given with the new book. At least all the spoilers regarding the Mark Frost book strongly imply that Frost's writing is at least as much to blame as Lynch's excesses for the mess that Season 3 turned into. Most of t...

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

So according to the spoiler thread of the coming Mark Frost book, Laura Palmer is now missing instead of dead and Sarah hosts a demon since she was a teenager, which means that two demon hosts got married and fathered a being of white lodge light. Does anyone else find all this convoluted mess profo...

Re: Season 3 was incredibly mean-spirited (spoilers)

I don't interpret the ending as neither positive nor negative. It just doesn't work as an epilogue. It's a to be continued. It ends at a point where you aren't provided enough information to reach either conclusion. Cooper can still fail, but at the point The Return ends there's no real reason to b...

Re: From an artistic standpoint, why was The Return needed at all?

I really can't see though how the placeLynch has left Cooper at is any better than the season 2 cliffhanger. Cooper now seems even more trapped and the integrity of his character is again poisoned by evil forces (albeit to a lesser extent) as traits of the character of his evil doppelganger have bee...

Re: Reconciling the ending of FWWM with the ending of The Return

I think The Return is definitely post-FWWM, and it's Cooper's fault Laura is stuck there with him. I think the new series is excellent and 18 is particularly haunting and special, but a few other supporting characters getting more closure aside, the idea that Laura is stuck in that nightmare is one...

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

Looking at credits on idmb for the original TV show, I'm thinking Producer like Fienberg ( worked on shows like Deadwood, Carnivale), Harbert, D.Simon are deserving a lot of credit. Would like to know what Carr Kneel was also in charge of as he worked on a show like Boston Legal. I think the reason...

also - what is up with the influx of new users with 10 posts who only registered to hate on the series.. if these are in fact the same few users using multiple accounts to flood the board with their hate then that's utterly pathetic. Comments like that are unnecessarily offensive and this is the se...

Re: David Lynch should not get away by declaring TP as a "dream"

Sounds too much like an excuse for sloppy art, which IE definitely was. And I'm not trying to start a debate here, but it's seems strange to me how someone with a good pair of eyes could not see the cinematic inferiority of both IE and TPS3 in comparison to Lynch's previous works. And as TPS3 shows...

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

What about Richard being burned alive? That's quite a horrific and violent death. Ah Richard Horne's sudden and violent death. If 90% of the storylines in Twin Peaks weren't suddenly abandoned or ended abruptly, this would have been one of the highlights of the season. A promising evil character wi...

no he did not do it for the money no he did not do it to troll fans no he is not senile. no he does not bear a grudge against people who liked his previous work or against it's success yes the first 2/3 of TP 1/2 was his vision and yes parts of the original ideas for a continued TP series 3 or 4 we...

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

To me, it is pretty obvious that Frost lost any possibility to have equal power on the decisions for the TPTR when Showtime made the decision to accept all Lynch's demands after the actors campaign for him to come back and gave him the astronomical amount of money he was asking. For this point on, ...

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

However i dont see how these problems are laid solely at Lynchs door when, to me, the problems i have with the show is mostly related to the script. And what you mention mostly relates to that as well. Exactly. I am not trying to absolve Lynch for the end result, but since the screenplay was a coll...

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

By the way I feel that the trope of multiverses/alternate realities/dream worlds is now beginning to get really tired. It has been done too many times and I have never really liked it, except in Lynch movies. I always felt that the only director who could do it well was David Lynch precisely because...

They just want the money. this is a crass thing to say.

Re: Annie and Dale

More tulpas? The concept is starting to feel tired and much like a cop-out.

I have always hated Annie with a passion, but she deserves better than to be ignored/sidelined/written out as tulpa/non-existent or whatever.
