Re: Recut of TPTR

Oh, I know there's something to this new "thing" that refuses to let go of me, so to speak - if it were not so, I wouldn't still be here, blathering about my disappointments over the show more than a year after it concluded. And even though I initially didn't care if we'd get more after S ...

Re: Recut of TPTR

I simply can't imagine waiting 25 years for more Twin Peaks and then complaining that there's too much of it once it finally arrives. Because what we got too much of is not Twin Peaks - not that Twin Peaks for which we've been waiting 25 years, at any rate. Yeah, give me more of what was once deeme...

Re: The Random Twin Peaks Thread

But we can. I'm hereby declaring Twin Peaks' Season 2 as the best part of the TP universe - take that! :D Well, I mean, it's tough, right? Because even if you hate the "bad" season 2 stuff, the first 8 episodes and the finale are arguably the best part of (the original) Twin Peaks. Even i...

Re: Freddie's fight scene in part 17

Actually no, Missula started attacking those that saw qualities in the scene and series as being brainwashed or over intellectualising things. It would make sense to start this thread if Missula was curious about why others liked it, but if it was only to write page after pag about how the only rig...

Re: Freddie's fight scene in part 17

At the end of the day, it's all down to personal taste and what moves you. On a whole, TR felt disappointing to me. We got that many pages ago. Your feelings are clear. This thread isn't your forum to repeatedly insult and condescend to anyone who liked a scene (or series) you didn't. Tone it down ...

Re: Freddie's fight scene in part 17

It's easy to over-intellectualize things. I read one comment earlier in the thread where the poster suggested that one must do as Dr. Amp says, dig yourself out of the shit, to really learn to appreciate the greatness of the Return :) It becomes a little far fetched. At the end of the day, it's all...

Re: Freddie's fight scene in part 17

It is the same thing that makes the nostalgia-crowd hate "The Return" . The sense of unredeemable loss of innocence/opportunity combined with the slower than even real life pacing, the lack of music. It all combines to something that is deeply and utterly scary. This is how the artists ge...

Re: Twin peaks: Nostalgia Fanedit

Hey, reddinocc! Just wanted to give you a quick pat on the shoulder for doing this project! I guess what I admire more than anything is someone having the motivation and energy to bother with S 3 at all (once he/she's seen it, that is), let alone going to the length you seem to have gone. I'll be su...

Re: The slow pace of The Return

And what about Jerry Horne? His interplay with Ben brilliant in the first season. Now reduced to a non-speaking character almost, looking at his foot with despair in the woods. Not funny, just frustrating. Almost as if a random film student was to offer his/her take on where Jerry Horne was 25 year...

Re: FWWM sequels

It would've been really interesting to see what Lynch and Frost would've produced back then, if they had the right support and funding. Going back to the point in time where The Return didn't exist, there was a lot on the table narrative-wise and much that still was never brought up again (both in ...

Re: Twin peaks: Nostalgia Fanedit

Every time I rewatch S2, the slump feels less deep and shorter than before. There's at least something interesting going on all the time, and the Windom Earle -plot starts quite soon. Maybe S3 will become watchable in 25 years, who knows. Of course, one has to note the Windom Earle plotline is for ...

Re: Twin peaks: Nostalgia Fanedit

sounds akin to the no jar jar binks fanedit of star wars episode 1. well, I made the mistake of watching the season 2 mid-season slump over one long weekend with friends. it's their first time through. we had a lot of donuts, but at the end we fell into a valley of despair. the final episode didn't...
