Re: One year later - how are we feeling?

I did think about that. But I wanted to watch things in series chronology order, since I've never done it.

Re: One year later - how are we feeling?

I remain totally obsessed with it, think about it every day trying to puzzle it out, and even dream about it on occasion. That must mean that I like it! I've been trying to find time to start a rewatch, and I might start this weekend (FWWM -> S1 pilot -> S2 finale -> S3). Watching the whole of the o...

Re: What's next? What chance do think there is we will see a season 4?

The persistent rumours/wishful thinking on a series 4 or series 3B that is ready to drop (mostly on reddit) are almost certainly nonsense, but part of me of course is counting down the days til July to see if anything materialises. Failing that, even if a series is announced, it only starts another ...

Re: How would Lynch/Frost tackle Season Four?

I have the feeling that a new series would be set in the alternate reality that we ended up in at the end of S3, but this thread has made me question that. The ending was an obvious attempt to set up a new series in my opinion. I can now see the series taking place across the two timelines/realities...

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

:-D Great posts above about the relationship between recent Lynch works. I've been reading the Cahiers du Cinema Twin Peaks special recently, since I don't have time to start my epic rewatch. Reading is slow because my French is crap, but it's a great dissection of the show, and even more impressive...

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

Regarding the comment about Lynch being drunk on the critical success of Mulholland Drive, and stretching that out to 18 hours, I think that is the wrong way round. I think Mulholland Drive would have basically been Twin Peaks S3 (without the Twin Peaks characters). In fact, the Vegas parts of the s...

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

I have Out 1 sitting on my shelf (it was my Christmas present to myself), and I bought it precisely because I wanted to compare S3 to another great director having a go at a long format. To balance out the pretentious scale on my shelf, I bought the Police Academy boxset to go with it :-D (Rather un...

"It's funny that a year ago, we were completely in the dark about what we would be getting. A year later, most fans are still trying to figure out what we got."

So true! I love this statement.

Re: Why so little of Grace Zabriskie?

The more I dwell on it, the more I think that a huge part of the aesthetic and feel of the show was driven by the decision to have such a large cast, and to therefore only spend a short period with each actor. That precluded a show where a smaller cast interacts regularly, which would generate a mor...

Re: A Long Reflection...

A considered opinion, and one I respect. For my part, I wish I had managed to avoid the forum full stop during the run. This was the first time I have experienced a TV show through the lens of interactions with other people on the web, and I definitely changed the experience for me. I felt I had suc...

Re: the Missing Pieces

I just watched bits of the missing pieces for the first time after watching S3, and there is something I noticed in the convenience store scene that didn't strike me as significant before. Putting in a spoiler tag just in case. Laura's face gets superimposed on the convenience store at some poin...

Re: Movies to watch between episodes!

If you want to see the average of Hitchcock and Lynch, watch The Fourth Man: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086543/ One of the classic early Dutch films of Paul Verhoeven (yes, that Paul Verhoeven!), and based on the novel by Gerard Reve. Very funny, lots of symbolism (apparently added deliberately to...

Re: Kyle MacLachlan sounding far less optimistic about more Twin Peaks

Watching the bluray behind the scenes features really brought home what an epic project it was. I'm sure Lynch is positive because he'd love to continue the story, but I'm sure that is tempered by the knowledge of how much of his life it takes over. Of course, all we can do is speculate, but that is...

Re: Would you prefer more Twin Peaks or an original Lynch/Frost production

For me, season 3 was both of the things you mention. It was more Twin Peaks, but it was also an original story with totally new elements that they cooked up.

That tells me that Twin Peaks is flexible enough for them to go where they want, so hurry up and announce season 4!

Re: What Other Directors/Actors Think of Season 3

Regarding Star Wars, I never saw any of them until I was 16 (and I am certainly old enough to have seen them as a kid), and I therefore missed the magic window of becoming very attached to them. By the time I saw them, they were ok, but I'd put Flight of the Navigator above any of them! So that make...
