Season Two: A Retrospective

Thinking back to my first viewing, I remember enjoying season two well enough. Many disagreed. So I thought I'd revisit it after some time to see if I felt worse about it. And...It's not great. The season started fine. The network forced their hand on the "Who Killed Laura" arc. And then t...

Re: How did you react to these turning points in Twin Peaks?

1. The pilot 2. The appearance of Bob in episode 1 3. The Red Room dream in episode 2 4a. The season finale - the fact that Laura's killer was not revealed 4b. The season finale - Cooper being shot 5. The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer - did you read it before watching season 2? Did it point you in a...

Re: FWWM questions (probably asked before but what the hell)

Any theories regarding the scene with Cooper checking the security camera repeatedly until he sees himself frozen on it? I always just assumed this bit was weirdness for the sake of being weird - i.e. no hidden meaning. But do you think it relates to a dream? Or to time slowing down because of Jeff...

Re: What are the Owls?

Does anyone know if there originally WAS supposed to be an extraterrestrial element in Twin Peaks before it was ret-conned into being a "message from the woods"? I've heard speculation that Frost liked this direction and Lynch didn't, although that would be odd given tha it seems to be al...

Re: American Horror Story

Watched a few of the first episodes. It was alright. Haven't felt any strong urge to return.

I think I'll check out Carnivale.

Re: What are the Owls?

I always thought the owls were (mostly) Bob's "eyes" outside of the Lodge. I think the Lodge spirits can all use such animals though. I've similar ideas on the monkey in FWWM.

Re: Why doesn't Cooper speak backwards in the Black Lodge?

At this point though the question becomes WHY have the monkey whisper Judy? This is not in the script and is something Lynch obviously executed in post-production, and most likely conceived there too. At which point, let's recall, he had extracted all of the sequel set-up/non-Laura elements in the ...

Re: Why doesn't Cooper speak backwards in the Black Lodge?

As per my own theories about the Black Lodge , it traps souls that face it with "imperfect courage" and over time assimilates them as full-time inhabitants (hence why Laura also speaks in that strange way in the Lodge, she's been trapped in there for a fair bit of time). That brings up an...

Re: My reading of the end of Fire Walk With Me

Not a bad takeaway from it, I think. As for that look on Laura's face, it does seem to me to be just a kind of desperation...And frankly, she's earned a little desperation. Always saw the angel as a White Lodge spirit too...Though much as I don't think the Black Lodge spirits have any real form, I h...

Re: Why doesn't Cooper speak backwards in the Black Lodge?

Cooper is a human. Only spirits speak that way. What about Windom Earle? As per my own theories about the Black Lodge , it traps souls that face it with "imperfect courage" and over time assimilates them as full-time inhabitants (hence why Laura also speaks in that strange way in the Lodg...

Re: Dopplegangers

From what we've seen in the black lodge, there are the 'spirits' (Bob, Mike, The man from another place, etc.) and there are Dopplegangers. In the last episode Coop goes into the lodge and faces his 'shadow self' and ultimately loses. He is trapped in there while his evil doppleganger escapes. One ...

Cooper is a human. Only spirits speak that way.

Also, it's not "backwards" at all.

Re: My introduction to Twin Peaks, and some other stuff

Hey! I love what you wrote. I feel like a lot of things about the Lodges have been talked about before but you've dialed in and come the closest to how I feel about them and their inhabitants. While also giving me a slightly differing view of them. I will try and organize my thoughts and post somet...

My introduction to Twin Peaks, and some other stuff

Born in 1991, Twin Peaks was cancelled a mere two months or so after I came into existence. Around...15, 16...I happened upon a fellow called Marilyn Manson and became quite the fan. In the course of my rather extensive fondness, I discovered references to something called "Twin Peaks" in ...
