Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

Based on reports that all all actors except MacLachlan got scale, it seems unlikely. Who's bankrolling this anyway? Just Showtime and Rancho Rosa?

Re: is there any other show that even comes close to your obsession with TP?

I think in most cases it's a futile endeavor to debate what did or didn't influence a specific scene, unless it's REALLY overt ( True Detective season 2 dream scene) or someone involved in the scene specifically puts the influence on the record. For instance, Matt Weiner mentions on the audio commen...

Re: The Random Twin Peaks Thread

I'm surprised anew on every rewatch how criminally underutilized Grace Zabriskie was. After Episode 4, she has a voice-only cameo in Episode 5 (possibly reused from another episode? She's not credited), then disappears until Episode 8....appears in Coop's dream in reused footage from the Pilot in E...

Re: Episode 12

There's an odd amount of violence against women in this episode: Coop hitting Nancy (somewhat mitigated/justified by his anger regarding Audrey, but still arguably unbefitting of an agent of his standing and prowess), Jean stabbing Blackie (and in a beautifully creepy unscripted moment seemingly sav...

Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

I can't remember who, but someone was chatting w the Diane folks, who I follow on Twitter - this person seemed to know what they were talking about & was intimating that these were basically pickup shots & not particularly unusual if you think of it as a film production so not sure if we ca...

Re: The visual aesthetic of the new Twin Peaks

I tend to think the "film" portion of MD is much more vivid and striking than the "TV" part. Like the very second it shifts into what was shot for the feature (where Watts is lying in bed, and Harring stands in the doorway) there's a sharper, more, well "cinematic" pal...

Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

Here's what SeriesGuide cones up with so far: Episodes 1/2 on May 21 Episodes 3/4 on May 28 And episode 5 airing on June 4. Not familiar with SeriesGuide. Is this a generally reliable site/app with insider knowledge, or more of a fan-edited IMDB type thing? This does actually seem like the best app...

Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

I'm still confused about the two hour premiere. Is it parts one and two edited together? Or is it eighteen parts and part one happens to be two hours? The official ShowTime announcement said the show was 18 hours , but in EW, DKL called it a movie in 18 parts . If both those things are accurate, it...

Re: Twin Peaks Character Series - 82 entries, runs thru 5/19

I reread it again, yeah you are right, he was definitely talking about the doctors. :( I guess I interpreted it that way because I wanted it to be so. (I feel kinda stupid now) Nah, part of the experience of being a TP fan is the maddening dichtomy between the show's tendency to drop subtle hints (...

Re: NO SPOILERS: Twin Peaks Season 3 on Showtime May 21st 2017

Yeah, I think that's a good way of putting it, TP is diluted Lynch (a screwdriver, if you will), and FWWM is undiluted Lynch (vodka, neat). Or maybe you could call it "pure heroin" version? :) Personally, while I'm a drinker and not a drug user, I've always viewed TP as "marijuana Ly...

Re: Twin Peaks Character Series - 82 entries, runs thru 5/19

After reading Gordon Cole's entry today, I was reminded of a deleted scene from the movie script that seems very interesting for what we can expect of him in the revival: Just after Jeffries disappeared in the FBI office, a frustrated Cole tells himself outloud that he is 'GOING TO BE READY FOR THE...

Re: is there any other show that even comes close to your obsession with TP?

For me, that third season of Hannibal is where the show really comes through on Fuller's stated goal of telling a Hannibal Lecter story in the style of David Lynch. The character motivations and the story are increasingy absurd, but the mood is incredible.

Re: is there any other show that even comes close to your obsession with TP?

Lost for me as well. I actually think it holds up better than TP as a unified whole, although it certainly doesn't have the artistic highs of the best (primarily Lynch-directed) episodes. I'm certainly hoping that the upcoming TP season changes that, of course. For me, Lost 's greatest weakness is ...
