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

So, in short, I'm not a Lynch fan, I'm not a fan of anything, Lynch's work happens to speak to me, to my cultural background and to my emotional responses to visual arts, the same way I have affinities with other creators, famous or not. This is not a high brow vs low brow contest, and I don't cons...

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

We don't know that the image on the playing card is an image of Judy. You're projecting that meaning onto it. There's actually a reason to think that it isn't Judy - when Evil Cooper meets with Jeffries, Evil Cooper asks Jeffries, multiple times, "Who is Judy?" So, Evil Cooper doesn't see...

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

I love you guys, but if you really think that Frost and Lynch are writing to specifically piss you guys off, then I reckon you're way off. They are not. Wonderment is cool and it's not all about the payoff. For what is worth, writing to piss people with certain expectations off is an argument I've ...

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

That covers the first book but it doesn't the Final Dossier. In any case there's not much of an argument to stick to without knowing the contents of the yet to be released book. I'm pretty sure the Final Dossier came about because Frost realized fairly quickly that his hands were tied on the Secret...

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

Glad you enjoyed the video! In regard to the Denise scene, I am hesitant to believe that it was intended to be condescending towards those who are apologetic of him. There is a certain level of self-awareness on his part, but he quickly dismisses the allegation from Denise by saying he's "old ...

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

Frost writing 2 books after what was to be the last word on the Twin Peaks universe took definitive shape speaks for itself. What artistic reason is for him to do something like that if he was truly satisfied with The Return. Not that what he'll come up with will necessarily be better. i don't thin...

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

Regardless of Frost's input on TPTR, it's unquestionable that it's Lynch's baby. The majority of the plot of TPTR revolves around plot threads and motifs that originated in FWWM, a project in which Frost had zero input. From the get go it has been obvious that Sutherland is Lynch's spin doctor, wit...

Re: Watching 17 and 18 in sync

Well, to me the author is dead and so his opinion of his own work could be interesting but shouldn´t limit my own experience with a piece of art. And Sabrina Sutherland isn´t even the author, so it doesn´t really matter to me. I absolutely agree. The work should speak for itself. Having said that p...

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

So according to Sabrina Sutherland on the reddit AMA, almost everything that was shot appeared in the final cut. And Lynch added material during filming, that was run past Frost who could say yes or no (and apparently always said yes). That explains a lot. Regardless of Frost's input on TPTR, it's ...

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

Like many others in this thread, I have been pretty underwhelmed by this new season. I recently made a brief video talking about David Lynch's self-indulgence in THE RETURN, particularly when it comes to the character of Gordon Cole. Here's a link to the video if you have any interest: https://www....

Re: An explanation of the end of Twin Peaks that provides closure

While acknowledging this 'tainted maternal' theme to be there in spadefuls, I don't like it. It places an undue amount of pressure on the figure of the mother to bear responsibility for literally everything wrong with the world. It's all mom's fault. That wasn't absent even from the previous incarn...

Re: Season 3 Ended On A Positive Note (Spoilers)

Our age needs heros more than ever, and good will always win over evil. Good doesn't always win over evil in real life. There's plenty of shows that depict the theme "good will always win over evil" but Twin Peaks is not one of them. If Lynch wanted to depict that theme he would have ende...

Re: Poll: Criticism of The Return

It's a balance issue. It's not anything specifically but how it ties together. It's less than the sum of it's parts essentially. The pacing alone didn't bother me. What bothered me about that was that it became repetitive very early. It too often ended up feeling pointless. I actually liked the mood...

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

I agree with part of your post but part is nonsense. I loved FWWM too for what it's worth. But to say that those who enjoyed the show are behaving better than those those who didn't is totally wrong. Look at this thread for God's sakes. It was created for one specific purpose. Lovers of the show ha...

Re: Season 3 was incredibly mean-spirited (spoilers)

I don't interpret the ending as neither positive nor negative. It just doesn't work as an epilogue. It's a to be continued. It ends at a point where you aren't provided enough information to reach either conclusion. Cooper can still fail, but at the point The Return ends there's no real reason to b...
