Re: TP:TR. Full 18-hour experience

The fact that something was intended as a subversive commentary on storytelling conventions (as Frost has implied) doesn’t make it inherently good. Metacommentary, like all other storytelling choices, must be judged on the merits of how well it comes across onscreen. A storyteller can choose to del...

Re: TP:TR. Full 18-hour experience

I think Freddie and the Green Glove is the equivalent of the stuffed Robin at the end of Blue Velvet. We should be wary because it’s too good to be true. Something is ‘off’ and should be questioned. The fact that something was intended as a subversive commentary on storytelling conventions (as Fros...

Re: Billy and Charlie

Is it still commonly assumed that Billy is the drunk is the jail cell? I'm still confused as to what difference does it make. The man in the cell doesn't interact with anyone who refers to Billy, so it doesn't matter. Billy could be a lodge spirit crossed over into the real world, perhaps, which co...

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

Constructive conversations about the merits of the actual content is very welcome and why we are here. How about constructive conversations about the faults of the actual content? There have been so many engaging critical discussions about the faults. What Eyeboogers is talking about are just the p...

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

For my part, I thought that everyone should have still been talking about Twin Peaks months after it ended; I was sad a couple weeks after the finale to see so many conversations (across the internet) dry up, as people moved on to the next news. Which is totally unfortunate, because this is not only...

Re: TP:TR. Full 18-hour experience

Watching Episode 8, and to a lesser extent 11, on the big screen at MOMA among an almost-full house of Lynch aficionados was one of the more fun screening experiences in recent memory. The image quality of this series, when projected in DCP, is utterly stunning. And so far the experience of watchin...

Re: Billy and Charlie

This is actually amazing, and I had no idea. What's equally interesting is that I was going to start a thread on these names as well. I don't wish to derail this one, but since mine was going to be called nearly the same thing, I'll post it here. Has anybody attempted to try to link each of the name...

Re: TP:TR. Full 18-hour experience

Oh, and LateReg, I don't have kids nor what the mainstream majority would consider much of a "life" - books, movies, TV and videogames are my life, or, if you'd rather, the reason why I enjoy my life and am perfectly content and wouldn't have it any other way. So I'm willing to waste hour...

If he doesn’t like it, he doesn’t like it. It’s an 18 hour long commitment, plus analysis time. I wouldn’t spend extra time on it if I didn’t like it to be honest. I am quite merciless because I consider Time quite valuable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk He was responding to me and decided to ...

Re: TP:TR. Full 18-hour experience

So I finally did it! I just finished watching my mega-marathon that included Seasons 1+2, Fire Walk With Me + The Missing Pieces, and of course "The Return", which took me five or six days but I finally got through all of it. Thanks for reporting! I'm glad you had a good experience, and I...

What Judy symbol?


I believe he's referring to the triangle shaped horned symbol on the jerky packages. Which happens to be right next to the word "albatross," which fits perfectly.

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

Watching a horrible example of a "typical" movie recently, "The Shape of Water", made me appreciate "Return" more. "Shape" is a by-the-numbers, bland, predictable film with forced sentiment. I wouldn't care if it weren't acclaimed as one of the best of the ye...

Re: Season 3 Magazine Coverage and Articles Worldwide

Tim Goodman stays Tim Goodman until the very end. He hasn't read one defense of the show that doesn't seem delusional, etc.

Re: 2017 Best of Lists

I don't understand how someone could both like "The Leftovers" enough to put it at #1, while not including its spiritual cousin "Twin Peaks" on their list at all. Bold as it may be, Leftovers is still very "TV." In fact, I think that Leftovers is just about as good as ...

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

It is meant to feel inauthentic, to make audiences feel cheated. If someone punches me in the face, I don't care if they meant to do it to represent a symbolic issue. Bad writing is bad writing, even if the writers are aware that it's bad. I've said all along that the green glove scenario is disapp...
