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

re. Al Strobel.

I wonder if the reason we've heard little in the way of new, very recognisable material from Badalamenti is age related. I know there has been a smattering of new tunes but nothing comparable to first time round.

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

Mike's lessened 'power' may simply be due to the the fact that Al Strobel is 78 years old. He's clearly a little frail and combined with the way Lynch has shot the Red Room, he sometimes looks a little diminished.

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

Uh, Lynch was chastising him for improvising. It was a turn of phrase - not a plot leak!

Re: When do you think will "Dougie" snap back to being Cooper? (Spoilers)

How long was Coop in Las Vegas? A week? Ten days? Let's not paint this as some kind of zen-like journey of healing and self-discovery. Dude barely had time to learn which end of a fork was which.

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

This thread has been notably harsh on Lynch - Frost less so. Yet I wonder if the lack of simple entertainment that many have highlighted should be laid at his door. I think you could see a problem even before the series began - that hidden supposed message in the spines of books in an image in TSHOT...

Re: Theories & Speculation (SPOILERS)

What no-one knows is that the Entertainment Weekly images weren't taken at a photo shoot - they're screen grabs from the final episode. TPTR is actually a tribute to Friends.

This is a 300+ message discussion. Can't see how it would have been comprehensible lost inside another thread.

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

It certainly seems like an incomplete arc at the moment. Like the Steven and Becky story, we'll need to see if we get anything else.

Re: POLL: The Nature of Audrey's Situation (Spoilers)

Can it be a coincidence that Audrey and Cooper both appear to have 'awoken' in the same episode?

Re: Twin Peaks The Return: The Mixed/Moderately Disappointed Thread

But it's those parts - the sweeping, Carl, etc. - that feel like TP, it's the attempted assassination on a bright Las Vegas plaza - that seems bizarrely lifted from a different show entirely.

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

I've said this already somewhere on the board but I don't think TLL's last appearance added anything more than her first. It was blunter for sure, but we'd already had a 'Good night, Margaret' or a 'Good bye, Margaret' in earlier episodes and these will inevitably seem smaller on further viewings. I...

What's the 'official' response been like John 'WIP' Thorne seems positive. What about Brad Dukes (who didn't like FWWM)?

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

Make a show about a Las Vegas lunk who undergoes a trauma that leaves him mentally incapacitated yet somehow mixed up in an insurance fraud scheme and I'd watch it. Make it a cross between The Sopranos and On The Air. It would be a lot of fun! But don't call it Twin Peaks or have the lead character ...
