Re: is there any other show that even comes close to your obsession with TP?

Well then, maybe stay out of the thread where shows are being discussed in detail. My discussion about The Shield wasn't the first such discussion here, and it wasn't the most concrete plot points-heavy of them either. I have seen The Shield. I have started this latest discussion on it. I was refer...

Re: is there any other show that even comes close to your obsession with TP?

They shouldn't read it, then. For instance, I skip all posts or parts of them that deal with a show I have yet to watch, like Mad Men - it's the safest bet. Just as soon as I read the title, I "turn it off". I wish everything was that simple. You never accidently read something you didn't...

That's too big of a spoiler for folks who might be interested in The Shield I think.

Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

As a few people have said, Leland doesn't think that Ben did it. He's defending a friend. This is even more interesting, because why doesn't Leland think Ben did it? Because Leland knows that Leland did it? Because he's just typical good Leland at the time and knows in his heart that Ben didn't do ...

Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

I guess that's because Leland isn't BOB all the time, he probably thought everything's fine and was in his right mind at that time. Why would Leland Palmer in his right mind defend Ben Horne from the accusations of raping and murdering his own daughter? It makes zero sense. The episode feels like i...

Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

However, I do not believe there is anything wrong with the Roadhouse scene. Cooper saying that Leland should be Ben's attorney and Leland nonchalantly going along with it is totally asinine, making everybody in that room - especially BOB - to behave subsequently like total idiots. Probably the bigg...

Re: is there any other show that even comes close to your obsession with TP?

I like both the Mad Men and the Breaking Bad finales, but there are far better episodes of both series. I find the MM ending perfectly ambiguous in a Sopranos sort of way: it can be read as redemptive, with Don finally making peace with his place in society as an upper-middle-class corporate schill...

Don't forget about MacLachlan's manners while sipping coffee in a promo video for some event that was made last September, I think - super creepy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIf3AhczxFI This one? Yep, the very one! There hasn't been a more telling hint at what we can expect from Coop in the ne...

Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

I think there is a massive clue in this article considering the initial reordering of the titles on Showtime website. I also seem to recall Machen Amick saying that she didn't think what they had planned had happened before. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/04/12/t-magazine/entertainment/david-lynch...

Re: Twin Peaks world premiere in Cannes

Which means I'm avoiding the Internet on Sunday night. Sparse tweet reactions to the premiere can spoil just as much as plot spoilers in my mind.

The episode is called Die Hand Die Verletzt. Originally from German, meaning "The hand that wounds".

IIRC, Mark Frost was the one who wrote Albert's peace monologue to Harry. I think Peyton said so on his reddit AMA.


Not the lines I was thinking of. All of his scenes in episode 3 are gold.

Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

That article seems unusually short, like it was heavily edited. Weird to have Lynch there and have a short article after the more extensive GQ and EW coverage.

Re: Twin Peaks Character Series - 82 entries, runs thru 5/19

Excellent write-up on Jacoby, especially on the differences between his plot importance and character nuances in the two seasons. I'm really enjoying this series, kudos! As far as Chet and Sam go, I have to say I was never a fan of the theory that it all takes place in Cooper's dream. I don't see a ...
