Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

I'm in the same boat. In fact it's dawned on me over time that a lot of the humor in S3, to me, feels very in line with what On the Air should have been, re the execution of that style of humor. In S3 I find the extremely casual performative aspect of it (where puns fly under the radar to the point...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

Yeah, I'm in the minority camp of "bitterly disappointed with Season 3." Those characters epitomized the boring, masturbatory nature of much of the season, and its bent for dumb, unfunny comedy. Even a grade-B Original Twin Peaks character like Hank Jennings was more entertaining. I'm con...

It's striking how the perspective changes with the setting. Not a single person I've watched season 3 with has had any reaction but love for those characters. Yeah, I'm in the minority camp of "bitterly disappointed with Season 3." Those characters epitomized the boring, masturbatory natu...

That might have been something Showtime wanted in order to sell home media releases. But absolutely, he clearly loves being on camera. I mean, he's on Youtube every day! :)

Re: Part 13 - What story is that, Charlie? (SPOILERS)

I noticed something kinda fun, sort of interesting in a totally unimportant way. Others have probably noticed it before, but I swear I hadn't and had to rewind a few times just to make sure I was hearing it right. We see Big Ed for the first time, and then Walter walks in and asks what his name is ...

Re: Lynch Telling off his crew

Wow, interesting ideas here, in what has sort of turned into a psychoanalyzing Lynch through TP exercise. :) I'll add one thing, which is to challenge the kind of "old material" amnesia that I feel happens to me and that I feel I see in others, which is that when Lynch guest spotted on the...

Re: Laura's diary pages (Potential Spoiler?)

I'm really of the opinion that TP fans should feel spoiled in this regard. I mean, whatever you think of them as written materials for their own sake, the books as artistic efforts are not on the level of, like, the Star Wars expanded universe, or assasin-for-hire ghostwritten novelizations of films...

Re: Lynch Telling off his crew

Maybe you think a forum like this is the wrong venue for talk of mental health? Lynch's own mental health is something he has discussed up to a point. No he doesn't do a daily video diary about it (as I wished for previously) but he's made mention of suffering too much anger, agitation or the 'rubb...

This is such a funny sentence. :) Thank you for these posts, I don't think I'd ever have quite looked at them in this way.

Re: Lynch Telling off his crew

This topic is something that bugs me personally. So I'm not exactly ranting against anyone in particular. -- The discussion of an artist's psychology in a clinical sense has too much of a tendency in my mind to end up somewhere adjacent to the Nazis, deeming whatever they didn't like as degenerate, ...

Re: Part 17 - The past dictates the future (SPOILERS)

I will need to rewatch this part for at least one thing in particular: there is a one brief shot of some machinery in a room at Fireman's place/palace. That looks interesting. I don't know if I've said it on the boards anywhere, but I consider this the single most important shot in the entire seaso...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

One small detail that I fixate on every time. This episode ends with arguably the biggest gesture towards nostalgia, with Audrey reclaiming the limelight if even for a moment. And then, during the credits where the band plays, the curtains frame the image in such a way that it almost makes me feel l...

Re: Part 15 - There's some fear in letting go (SPOILERS)

That always makes me laugh. Who carries a pad of paper around in his pocket like that? Why wouldn’t he just put the coordinates in his phone? (Although he goes through phones so quickly, maybe that wouldn’t have been the best idea after all.) I never thought it odd, then again I carry a little note...

Re: Laura's diary pages (Potential Spoiler?)

Informing a performance doesn't make it useful for tracking dates for plot continuity. Also, no matter what informs a performance, it's still just saying the lines on the page, and if the people writing those lines don't care about the Diary, the result won't reflect it very much. The people writin...
