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

The main problem with S3 is that the characters, such as they are, are wafer-thin and woefully underdeveloped. You cannot have a compelling drama without compelling characters. I mean, what the fuck is all that nonsense with Audrey and her husband? It's literally a waste of time. Their presence ser...

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

I know we're getting back into dangerous territory here and I don't really want to see arguments breaking out again. I really do believe that you guys posting here do love The Return and are not just swept up in some mass hysteria. But it's hard not to be skeptical when people on other threads aren...

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

What a lovely scene with Ed and Norma. I so often brace myself for the worst on this show! First when I saw Nadine purposefully striding toward the gas station, shovel in hand, I thought oh crap, she's about to kill Ed! Does she still have super-strength? Then when Norma seemingly brushed off Ed to...

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

I usually use white noise, possibly deep sounds. I like the electrical sounds in "Anthology Resouce vol 1" but unfortunately the sounds are often "interrupted" and not continuous. The youtube channel "Relaxing White Noise" has some incredible stuff. As for my tone, it ...

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

I watch ASMR videos on youtube with my headphones, it's nice. Me too, ASMR is awesome. Haven't seen the latest episode yet but (kind of) looking forward to. Yaxomoxay - that was an unusual spurt of aggression from you! Very out of character. Honestly I think at this point I'm going to find it hard ...

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

Just saw the Norma/Ed scene. Can totally understand why somebody would be underwhelmed by such a trite resolution of the saga. I certainly was. The Walter/"franchise" "storyline" was some of the laziest writing of The Return. Introduce an obstacle for one scene, just so Ed/Norma...

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

Here you lost all credibility. At this point you want to be disappointed, and you want to not care. The rest of your point is just bitching about nothing. Do I have to justify my feelings ? Very Well. If it is about Ed I was ok with him being a lonely bachelor, it felt real, sad but that's life. Th...

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

Trolling the audience need not be understood as malicious or mean-spirited, why not as simply being mischievous? But there has to be a certain measure to it, teasing the audience cannot be the central feature of a show. It is certainly allowed, but so should I be in calling the material and the cre...

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

Regarding Lynch "trolling" the audience...I don't like the word trolling or the mean-spiritedness it implies, but I have to admit that I do think that there is an obvious element of what I'd rather call "teasing" going on with The Return. I can't quite properly articulate it, but...

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

What people think about TP in 25 years is pretty moot. The original will be 50 years old. The number of people who will care about a TV show of that vintage will be pretty small, just as it is for TV made in the 1960s nowadays. There's still an audience but it gets smaller every year and kids aren'...

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

Mr C was a lot more interesting and intimidating in the early episodes, but I think this might be down to our unfamiliarity with Kyle as evil (loved the scene at Otis' place - one of my favourites of the season). He probably still has a vital part to play in the remaining episodes, though. Yeh, I f...

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

It is not like Ray Wise knew uprfront what exactly the original plot was back then, but he was able to nail it in. Try finding such a performance in the return. I still get goosebumbs just thinking about his performance. But, according to the experts, DougieCoop and Mr C is such a tour de force tha...

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

the footage as bland, digital and boring as possible. I have alot of sympathy with many of the complaints people have here about this series, in fact i agree with most of them, eg the above discussion about character ( lack of attractive characters /who there is are basically cyphers, etc - even th...

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

As far as acting is concerned, I am not really competent to speak. But maybe some people here are, or could make a better guess, so would you think that only seeing your page of the script on the day of shooting with the rest blacked out would affect your performance? It is not like Ray Wise knew u...

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

I agree with the observations about character, though I myself don't have any complaints. Lynch/Frost are definitely not handling character in a customary way. They seem to be using the characters as paint rather than fleshing them out, showing them simply and clearly as they are now without much de...
