Re: Part 14 - We are like the dreamer (SPOILERS)

It being all Audrey's dream would be really, thoroughly, mind-mindbogglingly stupid. What would possibly be the advantage to such a corny idea? There's nowhere for the writers to go and it drains so much of the power out of the story if it doesn't matter. There's no upside to it at all, it would lea...

Re: Part 14 - We are like the dreamer (SPOILERS)

So, has anyone presented any ideas as to why they did this? Probably some simple technical reason, like the original dialogue wasn't loud enough to stand out in the new mix? Seems pretty clear that with the new actor doing Jeffries' voice, it would make sense to dub that one line to match the new a...

Re: Predictions - will Season 3 be the last Twin Peaks? (SPOILERS)

yeah, that's not exactly accurate. Les bragged that it was PART of what led to higher than expected earnings.

It IS a good sign, tho.

Re: Predictions - will Season 3 be the last Twin Peaks? (SPOILERS)

T As the "end" draws near, for this season anyway, I think we should also move towards and united effort to show David, Mark and Showtime our love, to make a grand statement. Damn straight. I think all parties have an interest in continuing, the thing is arriving at a number, a schedule, ...

Re: RE: Re: Part 13 - What story is that, Charlie? (SPOILERS)

Why would anyone pay for that? Pay a production to have their competition highlighted as well? It's not super unusual, actually. For instance, James Bond movies often have placement deals with multiple car companies in one movie (such as BMW and the old standby Aston Martin). That being said, I'm 9...

Why could they not secure non-exclusive deals? Why would anyone pay for that? Pay a production to have their competition highlighted as well? You can certainly get free use of automobiles for use in shoots, tho. Somebody needs to ask Sabrina Sutherland about it, this must have been an insane thing ...

Re: Part 13 - What story is that, Charlie? (SPOILERS)

Final thought (and sorry for the long post)...has anyone noticed an abundance of product placement throughout this series. Maybe I'm just extra attentive because it's TP and this stuff is in all shows, but with the branding being so clear on laptops, Andy's Rolex, the Beamer - and many, many more -...

Re: Part 13 - What story is that, Charlie? (SPOILERS)

Here's just one of my questions from Ep 13: not just about the Owl ring, and why DoppelCoop put the ring on Ray. BUT WHY does DoppelCoop even HAVE the ring in the first place? He didn't have the ring, Ray got it from a man dressed as a guard at the prison and pulled it out of his pocket to show Dop...

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

You're watching the product of a corporate investment, in one of the heaviest corporate environments in the world, all written by a guy who owns or co-owns corporations, with actors that own corporations or are heavily invested in them. You seriously think Frost and Lynch's sympathies are with the ...

Re: Part 13 - What story is that, Charlie? (SPOILERS)

If Lynch wanted to show us unnatural movement, that scene would've been terrifying. It's not like he doesn't have the ability to unnerve us. It was about a sad old man being alone, not reflections of passing cars. That rant about Janey-E makes no sense to me. Is it that you haven't been married? She...

It's more that she's outraged about the HUGE interest they tacked on above and beyond what Dougie owed.

"CBS earnings boosted by Twin Peaks" is definitely the sort of phrase you want to hear when getting ready to negotiate for more.

I just realized something about Dr. Amp, he is reporting (not necesarily in this part) from `...American "Hindu Kush"`, which could also be read as `..."American Indian" Kush`, and so a place of Native American death, killing, and suffering. This ties into the TSOTP mythology an...

Naomi Watts' reaction to getting the gifts was so beautiful and perfect. What a ridiculously entertaining episode! Existentialism 101.
