Re: So is there anyone else who prefers The Return to the original?

Wow.

There's a scene where a guy doesn't know how to urinate.

Re: Mark Frost's Contributions to TP:TR (Speculation)

I think the important thing to remember is that, for example, the actual script element of episode 8 could have been very brief. "Atomic explosion." Perhaps the script has the Woodsman delivering the poem once but Lynch decided to try for an extended, trance-like effect. That's an obvious ...

Re: Mark Frost's Contributions to TP:TR (Speculation)

Man, imagine having the opportunity to work on a well-loved TV show after 25 years and make it deliberately "anti-climactic". What a thrill that would be.

Re: Part 18: something's bugging me...

He might think he's Cooper, but clearly Linda thinks he's Richard - hence the note.

Side note - where is he going when he happens across Judy's? That's accidental / fateful but he was heading somewhere.

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

The response to FWWM has often been discussed by those championing TR, but surely the obvious thing to take away from that episode is that FWWM was hated by the critics at the time but has been subsequently re-evaluated. Now TR has been lauded by critics so...

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

The end is clearly an integral part of the project. It's not a studio-bound piece where Lynch could work on the fly. Lynch would not have pulled Sheryl in for this role without Frost being part of that conversation.

Ronette and American Girl

Although Phoebe A played 'American Girl' there's nothing in the plot that suggested she was actually Ronette. Now that Naido has been revealed as Diane does this change things at all? There is the suggestion that BadCoop must have killed the 'real' Diane or at least taken her to the Red Room (and by...

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

Time travel may not have been something Lynch has done before but Cooper - on some level - meets Laura in the woods. Maybe he only dreams of doing so, but he's dreaming of going back in time.

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

Cooper simply being on the next stage of his quest - how long do people think he has? It took 25 years for him to be allowed to take one step forward (and one step back).

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

Were expectations too high? If Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John-Paul Jones got together as Led Zeppelin to record a new album, what are the chances it would equal (or even better) their 1970s albums? Pretty low I suspect. On what basis did we presume that Lynch and Frost would be equal to the task ...

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

There are lots of good and strong characters in TR - the Las Vegas material, the Buckhorn stuff. I like 'em. They're engaging for the most part. Like I said somewhere up this thread (I think) I was reasonably happy watching them, but the actual story was never that interesting (insurance fraud!) and...

Re: S3: Biggest Disappointment About Unresolved Subplots?

Not a hanging plot point per se, but the whole Truman's wife situation. Their relationship is developed and you guess this will inform things down the road but, no. Similarly, you get an insight into Beverly's life which goes some way to explain her relationship with Ben. But it stops. It's not a lo...
