Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

Was told by Amazon that the batch mainly went to the people who opted for next day shipping. Naturally all prime members used the free two-day option and were promptly bent over for it. I already paid extra when I became a prime member so I should have dibs when it comes to limited stock, I mean th...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

My Amazon order has officially been downgraded to “delivery date pending.”

I’m fairly certain that many of us on this board would have been among the absolute first to place preorders, and yet it seems like almost none of us got it. They must have manufactured an absurdly low number of units, no?

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

If it means they are selling more copies than anticipated, I personally am more than happy to wait and am very happy for Lynch/Frost/Showtime that sales have exceeded their expectations. We waited almost three years from the announcement to the Showtime premiere, a few more weeks to see the extras ...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

Cancelled with Amazon, because it had not yet shipped, and placed an order with a local Best Buy. Well, turns out that Best Buy ran out of stock before they received my order. Luckily, there's another one five miles further away that had some stock and they have one held for me to pick up on my lun...

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

Twin Peaks was named the 2nd best film (!) of the year on Sight & Sound’s list of best films of 2017. http://www.bfi.org.uk/features/best-films-2017/ I’m mixed on this. While it’s great to see the show get such a prestigious accolade, it raises questions about how BFI defines “film” going forwa...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

Has anyone received confirmation their Amazon pre-order shipped? I placed mine the day it went live and considering it comes out tomorrow I'm a little surprised I haven't been told it went out. I'm getting nervous Amazon is going to screw me on a pre-order yet again. I’ve been an extremely loyal Am...

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

It’s fair enough that the creators had a different opinion, but it felt like a completely separate project that was ‘Twin-Peaks-ified’ in order to get sold. That’s why I consider the whole of TPTR to be artistically senile. It was like an Alzheimer’s patient – memories of the past all over the plac...

Audrey — My post wasn’t directed at you! Gabriel referred to DKL as senile in the post before you. Your criticisms have been consistently level-headed and persuasive.

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

You know what, I’m really sick of this “senile” nonsense. I’ve found this thread by and large to be an engaging and thoughtful contemplation of the season’s weaknesses (of which I admit there are a number, despite my overall love for the work). But certain posters keep coming back to this idea of DK...

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

I don't think that is right, at least not universally so. I think the portrayal of Laura Palmer in FWWM, and the audiences possibility to connect with and understand the character, outweighs even the best moments from the series. I was gonna say the same thing. I feel more of a connection with Laur...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

This new footage is incredible — even better than the BTS stuff on IE. For a guy so protective of the final work as it appears onscreen, it’s shocking and thrilling that DKL allowed multiple documentary crews this level of access. I can’t wait for Tuesday. A few preliminary things from these videos:...

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

It seems likely to me something is going on behind the scenes with MJA. He trashed the show on FB up until a few days before it premiered. It's been too long now to just conclude he got religion and decided posting negative stuff about Lynch, Frost and Showtime. He stopped posting ANYTHING for mont...

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

I am rather hopeful of hearing “honest” reactions to the new show from the original cast one day. For instance, Lipton in 2001 opened up about the fact that she found FWWM too dark and joyless. I have to wonder how she felt about S3. I could see Kimmy Robertson having some choice words about the gre...

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

Why would a character be 'spoiled' by Season 3? I also have trouble understanding this mindset. Even taking it as a given that S3 was a steaming pile of turd — a perfectly valid viewpoint even if I don’t share it — I personally have always found it relatively easy to separate crappy sequels from be...
