Re: Different Twin Peaks podcasts

It's been kind of interesting to see the world of television podcasting try and grapple with something like TP:TR, since it so cut against the grain of traditional response and analysis. Many of them seemed to be unable to acknowledge this disconnect and adapt. Not surprising with "The Twin Pea...

Re: Watching 17 and 18 in sync

Well, to me the author is dead and so his opinion of his own work could be interesting but shouldn´t limit my own experience with a piece of art. And Sabrina Sutherland isn´t even the author, so it doesn´t really matter to me. I totally agree with this. But with regards to the "sync" theo...

Re: Watching 17 and 18 in sync

Back to the incoherent drawing board! I know some people find that this sync theory helps them make sense of the finale, and if that's the case, I'd say run with it. Just because it wasn't intended to be watched this way doesn't mean that you can't make interpretations about the show based on the i...

Re: Mark Frost's Contributions to TP:TR (Speculation)

This discussion seems to illustrate the problems with the "auteur theory". Lynch is obviously the head creative with this project... he had final cut and had more roles than Frost. He directed the thing and oversaw production and post-production. Those were his jobs and not Frost's. There'...

Re: Sabrina Sutherland Reddit AMA on Sun., Sep 10 @ 3PM PT

Strange to be so secretive over who voiced the gumtree / EoTA. Was it perhaps requested by the actor to remain not only uncredited in the series but also in subsequent post-broadcast materials? This is a very shy boy, Will. And she now just said "That is a fair assumption" to someone who ...

Interesting confirmation that the story about frogmoths in the Quinoa video was indeed the origin of the frogmoth in part 8.

Sabrina Sutherland on her Reddit AMA when asked if part 17 and 18 were meant to be played concurrently:

This is definitely not the way to watch these parts.

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

I'm not really ready to make a call on this. At the moment I feel the highs are slightly higher with the original, the lows are WAAAAAAY lower, but The Return is more consistently engaging and fascinating. I think in a few years The Return will be what I more frequently re-watch.

Re: Lynch or Frost interviews re Season 3?

Frost I would guess would do some interviews to promote The Final Dossier and will probably not be dodging questions about the series. Though he may be dodging those about his own book - if it'll contain as much inconsistencies as the previous one did, that is. Ya know, he'll be givin' the kinda an...

Re: Mark Frost's Contributions to TP:TR (Speculation)

The fact that he took a well-paying gig doesn't mean he's super passionate about the subject matter, and I've never seen him express any interest in superheroes or comic books. I'm pointing this out more for the amusing timing than to refute your point, but an hour ago Frost referenced The Joker an...

Re: Mark Frost's Contributions to TP:TR (Speculation)

I'm also not seeing a connection between Mark Frost's comic book screenplay and Freddie. Freddie seems like a parody of comic book tropes, one of a series of choices that seemed interested in subverting expectations... in this case the expectation of a big showdown or battle between the good forces ...

Re: Mark Frost's Contributions to TP:TR (Speculation)

This is an interesting thing to think about. I have to assume that a lot of the creative choices in TP:TR that cut so against the grain of conventional wisdom when it comes to constructing stories for television or in general came from Lynch, and I have wondered how much Frost embraced that. Some ti...

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

Rialto, you are pulling things out of a simple question that aren't there. It's a genuine question because most Star Wars fans seem perfectly happy with how things have unfolded with that franchise (maybe the recent spate of firings have caused alarm).
