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

So, is discussion allowed in here or is it just for disappointed people to tell each other how they feel? It would be nice to have a discussion platform. I saw sadly some rather demeaning posts about those who dislike it and they have been removed, but I'd like to think positive discussion could con...

Re: Part 8 - Gotta light? (SPOILERS)

Just too hard to tell when it comes to intended likenesses between young/old actors in my opinion.

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

No I didn't. I had hopes after ep 7 as it showed a bit of promise, but I felt they were dashed on the rocks with ep 8. To me, personally, it's felt heartbreaking watching what has been screened so far. What is heartbreaking to you about it, out of interest? Is it just the missed potential of what I...

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

I'm still profoundly disappointed so am in the right thread for that. Good to know. I'm also in the mixed-to-disappointed category, but didn't you enjoy Part 8 at least? No I didn't. I had hopes after ep 7 as it showed a bit of promise, but I felt they were dashed on the rocks with ep 8. To me, per...

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

You bring up valid points. I'll be the first to admit I am taking this personally, probably too much, but you have to understand, this - well, that - show has been with me for so long now, and certain aspects of Season 2 especially are so profound and near God-like to me, so much so that I'm incapa...

Re: Halftime Poll: Favorite Part So Far

Part 8, which is as far as I'm concerned the finest television ever seen, and something frankly I doubted was even feasible. It's also a beautiful, thorough, stylistically unprecedented exploration of the mythology of Twin Peaks - this is where I felt the most extreme unification of Lynch as a direc...

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

Maybe the poster who made that post jumped to conclusion re Frost's presence on the set as there really weren't that many photos of him there (I remember 1, maybe 2) and everyone has been silent as a tomb re Frost's role in the actual shoot - hence, his speculation seems more than valid to me. Earl...

The other, truer option is that they don't care about the audience!

Re: Part 8 - Gotta light? (SPOILERS)

Regarding the mythology stuff, I think the problem here is all the cg effects. If you think about the mythology in fwwm eg: - laura in the painting - the convenience store & it's inhabitants - Judy behind the mask - the jumping man - the red room It's all clearly real; people / animals, costume...

Re: What we learned about the Twin Peaks mythology in part 8 (SPOILERS)

I'm starting to doubt whether the girl is Sarah because I think the insect/bug is just too sinister looking to possibly represent Laura in any way, even withstanding how Lynch manipulates duality.

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

How do people feel about the digital cinematography after E8? I thought it was simply stunning. And the visual effects remarkable, especially the physics textures of the bubble stream and the insect.

Re: General Discussion on the New Series (All Opinions Welcome) (SPOILERS)

I'm not a NIN fan or anything but I loved their performance - more than most of the Road House performances so far, it really seemed integral to the plot - it conveyed to me the spirit of the soot covered lodge men. Tonally, musically, even visually it worked, although it seemed a tad long. I was w...

Re: General Discussion on the New Series (All Opinions Welcome) (SPOILERS)

I rewatched the S2 finale and, without trying to dismiss the old show, it's amazing how "quaint" it seems in comparison to the lengths Lynch and Frost have extended the mythology now. I remember seeing that extended Red Room sequence and being utterly in awe that something like that could ...

Everybody assumed that Mr. C will kill Ray and will head where the coordinates lead him. Now I guess that he will need to find Hastings secretary himself? Or he'll go to the Farm to find Ray again? Or to Argentina to find Jeffries? Holy fuck, this has to be the most unpredictable show ever! The epi...

For all the talk about the "bad" CGI, I agree. That sequence felt to me like a cross between 2001 and The Tree of Life's creation scenes - but better!
