Re: Billy and Charlie

Disagree, and checked it with the streaming version on HBO Nordic, the detail shot of Todd's head blowing up has been shortened. I just compared, and the Blu Ray looks identical to the version on Showtime streaming, as well as a Youtube video that was uploaded 4 months ago, of the scene in slo-mo. ...

Re: Part 15 - There's some fear in letting go (SPOILERS)

Other Woodsman observations: The stick the Woodsman slams on the floor is very reminiscent of the one the Electrician leans on in FWWM. It’s always struck me as kind of funny that the Electrician is nowhere near an electrical appliance in that room, whereas the Woodsmen are. Part 15 continues the Wo...

Re: Part 15 - There's some fear in letting go (SPOILERS)

The Woodsman’s machine is a good replication of the one Jürgen Prochnow’s character used in FWWM. The outer casing is different, but the top level of electronics looks like it might be the same prop or a perfect imitation (notably, DKL orchestrated an obvious editorial zoom-in to focus on Prochnow a...

Re: Billy and Charlie

There are many things altered between the show and the blu ray edition, one of those things is that there is no longer a visual glitch when Todd dies. I still notice the glitch and I honestly don't think anything has been changed. The dialogue you mention further down the page has always been what ...

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

One thing I've noticed is that there are very few who seem to like Lynch's later works (Mulholland Drive/INLAND EMPIRE) who also liked The Return. I'd be interested in hearing from those who love Mulholland Drive or Inland Empire but dislike The Return, or like The Return but dislike both of those ...

Re: Would you prefer more Twin Peaks or an original Lynch/Frost production

I tend to lean toward more TP, largely because I tend not to love their few other efforts (On the Air, One Saliva Bubble). It would certainly be interesting to see what else they would cook up as long as it was in a non-comedy vein. But TP:TR was in many ways an original idea, or at least, contained...

Re: Black Lodge/White Lodge mythology

I look forward to your thread, Isis Unveiled, but I still find myself more interested in Grant from the little I’ve read — partly because the pseudo-philosophical tint of his approach to questions of “self” sounds more up my alley, and partly because his incorporation of Hindu philosophy brings thes...

Re: Black Lodge/White Lodge mythology

Xavi and Isis Unveiled, perhaps you should start a Woke Thread where you can liberate yourselves from the lazy and unaware? You know, I was just starting to think that my case to be made really deserves a thread of its own. I've answered the OP's question about the origin of the lodges. Instead if ...

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

I also never knew this until it was mentioned here. But then knowing it I randomly noticed his face in the scene without even thinking of it during my last rewatch. However, I would like proof of this as I'm not sure if I was tricked into seeing it or if I actually saw it! I think it’s just Sarah’s...

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

In terms of connecting her with the jumping man, many forget that the jumping man also becomes Philip Jeffries (Bowie's actual face) as well in those split-seconds. I don’t think people forget — I haven’t even heard this before! Do you have a screenshot of a frame you think is Bowie? I just freeze ...

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

My problem is that the follow up, or more importantly the non follow up reads as nothing but hollow shock value. This is with the knowledge that Mark and David worked on something for years of plotting, and this is their product, meaning they say they have nothing planned beyond this ending. If thi...

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

Very interesting Mr R as always, and very articulate. I must say though that this I the one time I've not thought fair enough, you have a point. Maybe it is the Pollyanna in me but in a world as bleak as it is, why can't we have a hero. Why does our 'hero' i.e. Coop, have to be knocked down as I fe...

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

Something also rubs me the wrong way about taking a character like Audrey and putting her through the ringer and leaving her in limbo... not of course if it’s a cliffhanger. It’s like silencing a beacon of a strong woman protagonist that was a semi symbol of the nineties and punishing her. I comple...

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

Audrey — I disagree that Dale is unworthy of this type of exploration. One of the most fascinating things about this season to me is that L/F made the seemingly counterintuitive decision to give the Diane Selwyn/Nikki Grace/Fred Madison treatment to a character who, over the course of 29 episodes of...
