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

I just can't fathom people saying "I've loved everything he did since Eraserhead, but hate IE." Eraserhead is excellent, especially knowing the struggle of getting it completed. First great example of DL doing fine work under extreme restrictions, over five years! It really shows how much...

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

As for comparing TPTR to a turd, I'll leave it to anyone's appreciation. Lots of things have been calledvshit, crap, etc this way before your time or mine, and your words could be put in the mouths of countless people criticizing stuff, over the past century, stuff that you might yourself consider ...

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

everyone's got a different idea of what a story is. There's at least 25 pages of telling us some day we'll like it, or condescendingly that 'one day it will click!' or other variations of wishing we'd change our attitude or try harder, like the disappointed audience is the problem, not TR. Also, it...

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

The joy of not getting answers is that we can theorize for years to come. Yes, we can theorize about things like maybe Audrey is actually hiking in the arctic and just had a nightmare, which is why her background is white when she looks in the mirror. Or we can speculate that Mr. C is actually look...

Re: Poll: Do You Understand Now Why S.F. was pissed about her role in The Return?

To paraphrase Norma, maybe Fenn is overreacting. But they're her reactions. And the hurt she feels is her hurt. And how she reacts is none of anyone's damn business. Audrey was a tailor made character written FOR Fenn after DKL met her. How special is that? So how could she not take this revision as...

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

I think sometimes presence of heart makes the avante-garde crowd itchy under their berets, because anything resembling sentimental is Happy Days, clearly. DL has been telling the same story since Lost Highway, and others are just as proficient at the mind-bendy and the 'nothing much going on in a s...

Re: Poll: Criticism of The Return

Dropped plotlines are whatever since I didn't care about any of them terribly much. I feel soooo bad for the dogged theorists it makes all those weekly discussions pretty funny. I was bored for lots of the repetitive scenes. Roadhouse, jail, Audrey, Jacoby, Freddy's monologue, Cole's expositions. (C...

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

just a quirky melodrama. ...It's like comparing Happy Days to Apocalypse Now. Yep, just a quirky melodrama (not.) Twin Peaks S2 set this all up for TR and it wouldn't exist without the groundwork laid, the grounded and the far-out mythology. I think sometimes presence of heart makes the avante-gard...

Re: Reconciling the ending of FWWM with the ending of The Return

How about she got the shortcut to the angels, but Cooper still had more work to do- like vanquishing the evil (Judy?) that took over Sarah instead, and becoming Carrie's guide out of the nightmare he brought her into, which is not our Twin Peaks, or the world of the Return at all? We know it's not t...

Re: Calling all who think the original timeline is still intact

Sure everything still happened, why not? Jeffries, OAM or Jumping Man could have tricked Cooper into entering same timeline, but in another multiverse, knowing what he was trying to do and thwarting him. OR because the entities as Milford explains in SH aren't good or evil in our terms so we can't u...

Re: Annie and Dale

It would've been so easy to just simply have Naido turn out to be Annie while leaving what happened to real Diane being just simply she was taken to convenience store and tulpa created of her to wed half sister Janie-E to Dougie. I That I think would've worked much better while changing little. Thi...

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

There was a lot of potential to be had with the idea of Evil Coop manipulating the characters in Twin Peaks into thinking that he was the Dale they once knew. Also, the idea a Good Coop & Evil Coop showdown was teased from the get-go of THE RETURN, only for him to be abruptly offed by Lucy. as ...

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

The Return annoys me less since I haven't seen it hundreds of times but give me 25 years not watching original Twin Peaks and I'll tell you- it hasn't aged well. For now, they're both middle of the road. Twin Peaks is my wife, the love of my life, and The Return is an ugly mistress who is still kind...

Re: Music From The New Series

Am I the only one who actually likes Lissie's song? It isn't my usual taste, but it came to me at a time when I needed to hear those words, so I have nothing bad to say about it. Yes that's my favorite, prior to that was Cactus Blossoms. Fireman, Headless Chicken- worth the price of the album. All ...

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

Final Dossier is a mere 160 pages :cry: I dunno whether i would call this meta-fiction or alternative time-lines as other people have done: I think it is something else. I suppose if we get more books and maybe another series it will be clearer what it is. Would the "something else" be a s...
