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

I know you meant no disrespect. I was very glad to have seen him, he was such an iconic part of the series and the movie, so seeing him back in any kind of role sure beats not seeing him at all. He did his best with the material that he had, plain and simple, and let us not forget he had to double-...

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

The Audrey dance scene, even in her imagination - was it a 'you can never go back' footnote, a commentary on history not being able to repeated. Even if it was that it was still wrong, wrong, wrong. Quite cringey. On an online Q&A with Sherilyn Fenn I actually asked her how she felt about doing...

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

So, back when us disappointed-ers were bemoaning the fact that we had nearly an entire season of DougieCoop, certain fans were v dismissive. The main criticism seemed to be: "Cooper's been trapped in some Black Lodge hell dimension for 25 years - you could hardly expect him to snap back to his...

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

To me, about the entire show, warts and all, is the mindset of the viewer. On opening night, I had a friend pm me and tell me TPTR was shit and I was gonna be so bummed. I turned on part 1 and immediately agreed. I disliked it immensely. I started part 2 and was more saddened. After part 4, I was t...

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

When Lost Highway came out I seem to remember there being a lot of talk about the Balthazar Getty character going through a psychogenic fugue state (think it was that character, apols if got the wrong one!). Is this entire series Audrey's fugue state and her way of working out who she is? I believe ...

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

[ I never go in for all this "greatest movie of all time" nonsense because it's so subjective as to be meaningless. The movies that top these lists (and I'd be curios to know, since we're talking "best flicks lists" business, what do you make of nearly God-like status ascribed t...

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

As the show begins its death throes and my expectations sink farther into the abyss to the point of becoming non-existent, I find that my biggest issue now is that I just don't care. The show spent 15 hours flinging mud in my eyes and giving me the middle finger, and now I can't be bothered to care...

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

The viewpoint of movie critics is more objective than that of fans (you and me both included). However, I would not take one single movie critic's word for it- I would take an aggregation of critics to be the closest we have to an objective evaluation of any movie. These metrics are far from perfec...

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

I thought you could benefit from an objective point of view... How is the view of the journalist writing that any more objective than anybody else's view? Do you think because this is in the fucking New York times that it proves that TPTR is 'good'? The viewpoint of movie critics is more objective ...

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

That's 100% how I feel Agent Earle. And I imagine most of us are the same. Which is why it's so ridiculous when we keep getting told, 'Go watch Ironman 3!' I'm so glad you agree about The Shawshank Redemption. I immediately dismiss any meaningful friendship with anybody who rates this as the greate...

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

Count me as one (who thinks so). I think the whole run of the original - very much including the dreaded so-called "slump" and the majority of plotlines you've listed (in particular the "Heather Graham" and "Wyndham Earle" arcs) - is brilliance personified. The new one...

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

She means that she won't be able to watch Audrey and Coop's scene as they were anymore, which is totally legitimate. My point is that each additional episode is going to "taint" something from previous episodes. Any update is going to "taint" what was there. The only way not to ...

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

Yes this is a truly upsetting thought and if it becomes true, then I don't see how it can't taint the original series. Deliberate act of vandalism but, the first series was about a teenager being raped by her dad. What do you mean, 'tainted'? ' vandalism'? are we watching different programmes? The ...

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

Likewise, the unpleasant theory that Richard Horne is the product of rape - this carries no dramatic weight if the viewer doesn't understand the relationship between Cooper and Audrey in the original series. But if it does turn out that Audrey was raped by (who she thought was) Cooper, it'll leave ...
