Re: Poll: Criticism of The Return

No option for it just being a complete disaster? Below is my own rant/summary on that subject, to give you some ideas. You might also want to check the 300-page forensic dissection of the flaws on the Profoundly Disappointed thread and search it for posts by judasbooth, David Locke, Gabriel and mlss...

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

Sadly, at the end of the day, despite all the gushing critical reviews and praise- The Return will largely not be remembered by anyone with the exception of Twin Peaks fans and hardcore Lynch lovers- the world has already moved on to their next show- Heck, I moved on before The Return even ended an...

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

Goodbye to boske and judasbooth, then. Superb signoffs from you both. Thank you for your insight, sanity and wit -- you are both v funny fuckers. And yeah, let's use this shambles as rocket fuel for our own projects. We've just sat through a gruelling eighteen-hour crash course in precisely how it s...

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

I think we really need to see the original script, I simply do not believe that most of these scenes are there. I agree with you by the way 100%. And the notes scribbled on beermats, napkins and the like. BASE 18-PART STRUCTURE ON ULYSSES. INFORM AUDIENCE WOMEN 40+ = HAGS. INFORM AUDIENCE AM STILL ...

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

I'm aware of the separate gender thread but I still would like to mention here that the blatant misogyny has been unbearable in TR even by cable show and overall problematic Lynch standards. Older women are ridiculous nagging caricatures, younger ones are naked and lingerie-clad victims offered up ...

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

But, I wouldn't quite agree that Laura's murder was unambiguously retconned - I think it's more precise to say Cooper tried to do this, but failed (it seems so, anyway). But yes, that idea is icky, even if it's Cooper's failed plan more than what the show is trying to literally do. Even just seeing...

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

The amount of Gordon Cole in The Return does strike me as pretty excessive and self-indulgent on Lynch's part, in retrospect. He's portrayed in such a flattering light, unsurprisingly - look at the beautiful women he beds! Look at how even Tammy makes goo-goo eyes at him! Did anyone notice that, in...

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

Much about The Return is undoubtedly unique. Uniquely bad, uniquely contemptuous, uniquely ambitious, take your pick. As others have been saying, and for the reasons detailed throughout this thread, it really is one of the worst dramas ever aired. The clinchers were the random “resolution” of the Do...

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

I suppose that The Sopranos's viewership was a lot higher than TR's, which is established fact! I had no idea how active those boards were, I wasn't on there. Sure. But I can't see the relevance to The Return is a masterpiece/not of "When that show ended 11 years ago, the ability to use the In...

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

This forum has taken a strange turn. There is all this casting about for whether things like... the Sopranos... provoked any critical dissent on release. Straw man. Nobody has posted anything like this. then there is the ' OMG this isn't a masterpiece it must be a failure then' hyperbole. Not just ...

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

I wouldn't call the new season a masterpiece. But I also don't think you can compare the online response to The Sopranos to what's happening on this board. When that show ended 11 years ago, the ability to use the Internet on smartphones was very limited, expensive and slow. So what does it say tha...

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

Another thing that it is not is Total Camp. I’m actually surprised that Lynch’s trademark mix of kitsch and deeply felt sincerity all of a sudden seems so baffling to his more or less seasoned viewers. The number of times your posts get misrepresented on this site, or even completely reversed, is q...
