Re: Part 17 - The past dictates the future (SPOILERS)

Fantastic episode, slightly disappointed in the Freddie v Bob finale, but it is what it is.One thing i was surprised, it took all of Mr C efforts to get to the White Lodge, but he was immediately sent from there by the Fireman to TP...why was it so important for him to get to the the White Lodge? I...

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

Repost: This is probably also the place to separate how the show feels while you’re watching it and how it lingers in the memory afterwards, something David Locke’s superb recent posts alluded to. The original run and FWWM were spellbinding live experiences but were so haunting that in the memory t...

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

That's totally fine. My comment wasn't levelled at you. It's at those who keep accusing us of just wanting a nostalgia fest, which actually isn't true. I mean yeah, if wanting a show that bears some slight resemblance to the original is a nostalgia fest then maybe it is true, lol. In any case thoug...

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

Plus as I and a couple of people have pointed out, there's a level of hypocrisy here. The same fans that decried our nostalgic tastes are in rapture because we have a missing piece from the original series back. Being honestly engaged with the Dougie saga and what it was trying to do does not mean ...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

So here goes, my preliminary write up of part 16. I'm okay with the night-driving on these winding roads, a very familiar Lynch imagery. With the Evil Coop at the wheel, his devil-spawn at his elbow, a headlights-illuminated gypsy ribbon leads us through twists and turns, up hills and down dales to...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

After a very long day driving to Nevada and exploring for hours around the shores of Lake Tahoe, hurrying after and at times carrying my son, we were heading back to California after dark. As I drove through the tall dark trees at night, the headlights illuminated a pitch black two-lane road windin...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

Okay if Audrey is in the "nut house", then we can only assume that all the new/nameless characters in the roadhouse who don't interact with anyone from "outside" are also patients in the "nut house". If so, the "I'm waiting for someone" kinda gets a whole new...

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

Agree that the sites you mention give decent measurements. However, most of these are based on the opening four episodes, as far as I can see. What happens when a writer gives his final assessment - is the earlier evaluation erased, or is the last one simply added? I'm not too familiar with how the...

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

(I'm pretty sure the straight-up reuse of Jacoby footage was simply out of economy/laziness and not some elaborate, deeply-embedded subliminal theme about time being out of whack, as several posters seem to believe). I haven't gone back to check, but was that most recent Jacoby rant exactly the sam...

The magic of Twin Leaks continues. Feel free to drop this ugly American cryptic teasers (and only teasers, please, not outright spoilers) in my inbox if anyone feels so inclined. In case you or anyone else decides to get spoiled rotten (like me!), there's a reddit thread with tons of spoilers. :twi...

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

There are definitely some subplots that feel oddly rushed and underdeveloped, considering that this thing was scripted and shot as one long production AND outsized to twice the initial planned length. Plot has always been a bit perfunctory to DKL, but with certain subplots here, it feels almost lik...

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

The Return could have been great if enough time had been taken to develop the characters and their relationships to each other. The complete lack of compelling characters has been the single biggest flaw in the series. There’s some pretty strong competition for that title. For me the honour would g...

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

I´m also interested why Mr. C gets so upset when Jeffries mentions Judy. It´s almost like he´s afraid that Judy is working against him and could bring him down. We never saw Mr. C loosing his cool or being emotional with the exception of his angry face after he punched the guy in the face after arm...

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

Mr. Reindeer wrote: And what is missing almost entirely to date is a psychological/allegorical element to the mythology. interesting point. But can counter that with: ep 8 sets up this very explicit ' yin yang' aspect to the mythology. The whole doppelganger theme also does this. The wish fulfilmen...

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

Am I the only one thinking that Billy might be some sort of a reference to John Justice Wheeler as he was portrayed by Billy Zane? Billy could be a reference to the "real world" that Audrey is currently not part of. If she cannot leave the house, it could mean that she is either dead or i...
