Re: Parts 3 + 4 (SPOILERS)

I think only the beginning syncs up - the rest in the purple world is just coincidence and the usual magic that takes place when you combine unrelated video/audio and our brains try to make sense of it. Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta go dig out "Dark Side of the Moon" I assumed that Mot...

Re: Expectation setting by fans in the modern cyber arena

I agree with you. Though a big part of loving a show is not based on rationality, but on emotional connection, a click with the material that has been offered. People connect with a show (or a band for that matter) and associate it with elements of their own life. When it has such a huge importance...

Expectation setting by fans in the modern cyber arena

While the show itself may buck trends, the existence of Twin Peaks: The Return is part of a recent trend of revivals. In each case the marketing behind the revivals is banking heavily on fan nostalgia. And the excited fan bases are approaching the new material with high expectations. It's not uncomm...

Re: Joan Chen's letter to David Lynch (NON SPOILER)

I'm definitely in the camp that she's a surprise cameo candidate. I can't imagine why they wouldn't bring her back if she was willing to come back. If they were sore about her wanting out in season 2 it wasn't enough to prevent her from coming back in FWWM. The door knob scene may be polarizing amon...

Re: NON SPOILERS: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Showtime Thread

The reactions have been interesting. Honestly there would be something amiss if there weren't polarizing reactions, but it's interesting that the disparity has been greater among fans than critics, who largely seem on board. Some people hated the first two episodes and loved the next two. Some vice...

Re: Parts 3 + 4 (SPOILERS)

The series needs to be free to set a tone that's different than the original series and FWWM. Just as FWWM had to be free to set a tone different from the original series and season 2 had to be free to set a tone that was different than season 1. Every step of the way a segment of fans wasn't happy ...

Re: Parts 3 + 4 (Spoilers)

A couple folks said negative things about Chrysta Bell, and I've been wanting to mention that she's my favorite new character. As Agent Tamara Preston, she's fun, spunky, and gorgeous. Hope she plays a larger role going forward. I agree. I think she's going to do things to break down the stereotype...

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

I know this is a safe space, but I'd been mulling over the fact that the reaction among fans seems far more polarized than reaction among critics. While it's no good to make sweeping generalizations, I do wonder how much of that has to do with fans setting expectations of what the third season neede...

Re: Parts 3 + 4 (Spoilers)

I know this is sacrilegious, as I'm aware of Lynch's opinion on the matter, but when I saw these two shots I could not help but think of possible product placement. IMG_2734.PNGIMG_2735.PNGI know the time (2:53) was important to show, but it seems like a different car or console without a blatant l...

Re: NON SPOILERS: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Showtime Thread

I'd be interested to know if there was a spike in Showtime On Demand subscriptions. I know I subscribed on Sunday, and I suspect many people did the same either Sunday or in the days leading up to it. It's not like those numbers would be less important to Showtime than the live ratings. In fact the ...

Re: Parts 3 + 4 (Spoilers)

I absolutely love all the Lynch weirdness and the intentionally stylized fx. Good Coop's journey from the Red Room to the point he replaced Dougie was great every bit of it. Tamara Preston is terrible though. Is she really going to walk like that the whole series? Generally I like to hold off judgem...

Re: Samurai Jack is back!

Edited to add: I wonder about overlap with TP fans. Both series are unusually rich artistically, and also are very much about good v. mysterious evil, there may well be an overlap. If there's not much of an overlap, there should be! Also there's this, the Samurai Jack revival will conclude the day ...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31

I just find that cross media stuff tends to be pointless by design. You can't create something that is in anyway essential to the narrative in a form that most people won't consume. I enjoyed Secret History (and I'm very excited to see something that might actually fill the gap), but, I picture it ...
