Re: What Did Laura Whisper?

Your Soul has been utterly annihilated. In this context, the trial that Dale underwent as he confronted his Shadow Self in the Red Room and the resulting failure to show perfect courage meant the destruction of his Soul. He is now a Denizen of the Lodge (or a Dweller on the Threshold, as it were) j...

Re: What's your favourite scene from The Return?

Great points, claaa7. I do think that scene, like Part 8, represents the L/F collaboration at its most simpatico, a perfect synergy between Mark’s more political sensibility and DKL’s philosophical interest in exploring/combating human suffering and pain. For a long time, I've had a big issue with ...

Re: Poll: Worst Roadhouse performance

In another post you've said that all criticism is valid which is fair enough in a general sense of appreciating all viewpoints. However, I would argue that some criticism is MORE VALID. Fans being negative about the Lissie performance are not being reasonable or thinking about its placement in the ...

Re: What's your favourite scene from The Return?

Sick Girl is way up there for me too. Not necessarily so much for that moment itself (although it’s a hilarious button on the scene), but for the sense of suburban anxiety and dread the whole horn-honking sequnce evokes. The foley and the lighting were outstanding. And it was just so damn cool, aft...

Re: What's your favourite scene from The Return?

Very difficult to choose, it would depend on my mood.
E18’s long drive to the scream is what I think about most often, especially when I drive in God forsaken roads in Texas, at night.

Re: Theories & Speculation (SPOILERS)

So at one point in TSDoLP (the 11/10/85 entry), Laura dreams of the address 1400 River Road. Upon getting there, she sees Margaret, who also dreamt of the location and was told to go there to spend time with Laura. What was the location? An “old, abandoned gas station.” :shock: And, from the same e...

Mr. Reindeer wrote:Heh, that’s a neat point about Jacoby and Norma. That gives me a new appreciation for the rather cliché/rushed Walter storyline.


It’s definitely a pretty weak storyline, but it’s not that terrible either; it has its merits.

Re: Poll: Worst Roadhouse performance

Man oh man, this poll is ample proof that some Twin Peaks are quite conformist and tunnel-visioned in their viewpoints. Its just a handful of dimwits but Lissie has been voted for most why? Because her performance makes it obvious she is lip-syncing? Because its too pop-rock and kinda upbeat? Jeez ...

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

I strongly, vehemently disagree. One reason is TP related, but the main reason is of a different nature. Let’s start with the easy one, TP. The fact that the kid died is due to reckless behavior exactly as Cooper venturing into the Lodge to save a girl. Both characters clearly display no interest t...

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

Ah ok so the argument is that Cooper released something damaging from the Black Lodge - on a cosmic level? I would tend to agree with that more than any of these definitive ideas about Mr C raping Audrey etc. In this case it’s not a matter of cosmic level - if I understand what you mean correctly -...

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

Let’s put it this way. If Cooper had never ventured into the Black Lodge to save Annie, the innocent kid would still be alive. I think that the function of the dramatic scene of the kid’s death is to show that unfortunately good intentions will not ease pain as a whole. Actually, saving Annie proba...

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

I get that, and it’s wonderful for it to be a success and a joy for you. And remember though I am someone who hated the second half of the second season, and aside from the soundtrack is left cold from FWWM. What I loved about Peaks was how tight it was, like a drum, in that first season... yet sti...

Re: Did Cooper really fail? Was Laura really supposed to die?

One of the quintessential events in TPS3 is Laura Palmer visiting the Red Room, as was predicted 25 years ago. Then she disappears and next Leland asks Cooper to find Laura. Laura was dead, wasn't she? So the only possible locations for her residence in such state would be ... 1. The Giant's 2. The...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread (SPOILERS)

I certainly won’t deny that there is a glut of sequels and remakes, maybe more than many previous eras; but the fact that something is a sequel or remake doesn’t mean it’s inherently bad any more than an original film is inherently good. TP:TR proves that sequels can be wildly original, and just ta...

Re: Did Cooper really fail? Was Laura really supposed to die?

there have been some really good conversations and theories put forward in this thread, its lovely the way the show inspire us to dig deep into our own selves and put the pieces together as we see them fit. i have been thinking about why Cooper is "rescuing" Laura Palmer at the end. why i...
