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

To make things clear, I do think it's possible to love the original series and still love TPTR. Obviously millions do just that. Power to them. But it's also possible to love the original series more than THE RETURN and also be justified, and not be called nostalgic, wants no change, and stuck in th...

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

Its not a pissing contest about who is a bigger fan, I was simply pointing out that those that perhaps watched it once are not affected as badly by the atrocity that is season three. And I didn't say ALL people that hate the season are Liberal voters, just I assert I bet the majority are... this is...

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

I also think part of the problem with TPTR, and the reason why a lot of newbies like it despite its experimental nature, is that it feels too contemporary, compared to the dreamy timelessness of the original. The Roadhouse numbers add to that feeling as well, and will sure date the series to some ex...

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

Episode 14. What is there to say? I liked the sequence in the woods and the revelation of the Fireman. Sarah Palmer's scene was frightening, but jarring as well. The tone in this episode was way off for me. And what about that atrocious sequence where our beloved James sits with a young body guard w...

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

I think it's also bizarre that detractors of THE RETURN are criticized for being nostalgic for favoring the original series. While the diehard supporters of THE RETURN keep saying that Lynch is returning to the styles and motifs of ERASERHEAD and his short films, which they love!!! How's that not b...

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

More and more, as I read posts by many people who keep staunchly defending this season, it becomes clear that many, not all, of them are against any criticism of Lynch whatsoever, to the extent of dissing the original series because it wasn't "pure Lynch"! I find this viewpoint mind-boggli...

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

With only five more weeks to go before THE RETURN ends, I think it's safe to say that whatever takes place in the remaining parts will not undo the damage done by the past 13 parts. That doesn't mean TPTR is awful. Far from it. But it is indeed profoundly disappointing. I waited 20 years for this? A...

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

I consider myself to be both mature mentally and emotionally That's what crazy people say! That's why we all say it :) Good post, very personal and well written. However, I strongly disagree that S3 is vulgar. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk I don't think S3 is vulgar, either, but it is occasional...

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

Really enjoying this group. After reading a lot of discussions about how Lynch really didn't deliver, in terms of capturing the mood, warmth, and tension of the original series, I've come to realize that the Lynch I knew and loved is gone. Remember when Lynch was fascinated by, and wrote with tremen...

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

God, I finally found a group that doesn't think Lynch is a demi-god and THE RETURN can do no wrong. I'm loving some of the discussions in here. Keep it up :) Welcome! I think we still all love Lynch but we don't necessarily think that anything made by David Lynch is by definition genius. Not saying...
