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

Thank you for your videos, Joe! They're perfect. I'm still in shock by the whole Return. The only real concrete mystery to me in the end was how Lynch and Frost constructed this ultimate mess. There was so much great potential... and this coming from someone who hates most of the second season, and...

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

I must ask again. You lament the futility of Twin Peaks Sheriff Dept. What was its purpose in S1 and S2 other than guiding Cooper around town? The Sheriff's Department in seasons 1 & 2 has no bearing on our discussion of the Sheriff's Department in THE RETURN. But I do remember Harry Truman &am...

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

The Sheriff's station plot didn't really serve any purpose, like many other aspects of the show. Out of curiosity, they looked into some clues that popped up--e.g., Laura Palmer's diary pages, Major Brigg's notes, etc. But all of this goes nowhere, as they don't apply any of this information in a m...

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

Except that the Fireman pulled a fast one on him and sent him elsewhere, so there was never any threat from Mr. C to the main characters. He was just a pawn in a game we can't understand, and therefore pointless to the story. That’s not true. The Fireman’s plan needed some events to happen in a pre...

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

What do you mean by the lack of 'true mystery'? Did you really think The Return was going to revolve around a new murder mystery, like the original series (as a lot of media outlets speculated)? There is no way Lynch and Frost were going to do something so formulaic: It was fresh and new in 1990- i...

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

Some of you seemingly enjoyed my video on David Lynch’s self-indulgence from about a month ago, so I decided to make a new video talking about a few more issues with the show, primarily Evil Cooper's character and the lack of true mystery. For those interested, here’s a video link: https://www.yout...

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)

The Return failed on a screenwriting 101/filmmaking 101 level. For example, the main antagonist in a work of dramatic fiction should probably pose a threat. Evil Cooper wanted mysterious coordinates to a mysterious location for mysterious reasons. What was he trying to accomplish? What threat did h...
