Re: FWWM questions (probably asked before but what the hell)

when I watched this in the cinema recently (only my 2nd time) the security camera scene seemed to be a very obvious echo of the finale, with a blank-faced (but increasingly panicked) cooper walking back and forth between a room and a corridor, and eventually being faced with a double of himself Oh....

Re: 'The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks' new novel by M. Frost 2

To each their own - to me, the sudden dead space, then the laugh and the hand rising up over the side of the bed creeps me out every time.

As for BOB only being tied to the Palmers, I never saw it that way so I am good with it.

Re: 'The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks' new novel by M. Frost 2

I stand by the BOB/LMFAP moment with Josie. I think it's so shocking and jarring to realize every dark human story links back to them or is potential prey for those forces in the woods, not just Laura. It's the last possible place you expect to see them, but it ties that errant noir plotline back in...

Re: Revealing the killer - public vs. private

I think a lot of people loved Season 2. It's certainly my favorite season, warts and all.

Re: Journey Through Twin Peaks: the complete presentation

I wish the essay could've been included on the set. I may not agree with every point or theory Lost has, but overall I think it's incredibly comprehensive, meticulously researched and an excellent piece of work.

Re: Revealing the killer - public vs. private

A lot of people were really hyped about the TD lore, thinking it would be a huge part of the story. In the end it was about those two men and their personal (and spiritual) journeys. I ended up satisfied with that, but I can understand why some people wanted more Yellow King. I don't think Frost was...

Re: Fire Walk With Me early drafts

I think it's all consistent in its own way. In episode 16 it's from Leland's POV, and it's from the POV of characters who felt for the entire family but also could never know the whole story. I think FWWM fleshes it out and reveals the whole picture. To me, as a viewer, even before I saw FWWM I felt...

Re: Fire Walk With Me early drafts

I don't agree that the show totally absolves Leland. I think it treads the line in episode 16, but is also somewhat rushing to tie up his character arc, so they gild some edges until the final scene, where they put it right out there that he raped and murdered his daughter. I think episode 17 hits t...

Re: Fire Walk With Me early drafts

I liked the Robertson myth. And I like not knowing what was real and what wasn't. It's fodder for so much imagination. But I do believe Leland was also molested. I believe his version of the story is at least semi-true, and somewhat addled by BOB. I don't know that I think Mr. Robertson (or whoever ...

Re: The European Version alternate ending

I love the gum. I think it makes a sort of dadaist sense while also having some real world layering. It just clicks for me.

Re: The European Version alternate ending

I vaguely recall reading somewhere that Frost insisted they sit down and figure out the meaning behind the pilot ending/dream sequence if they were going to include it in the show, so he and Lynch hammered it out together. From that, I assume, came the mythology. That may even be how they hit on bri...

Re: Andy “plank” scene and Philip Jeffries scene

I can't speak for Lost, but I know some of the later guest stars tell differing stories about Lynch in Reflections. Annette McCarthy (Evelyn) claims he was involved in her audition process, I believe, and Kenneth Welsh says he dropped in at one point to insist Windom Earle only be shown wearing black.

Re: Episode 23

I always thought Josie was that classic Lynchian archetype of the noir "woman in trouble" - caught up in lies upon lies, versions upon versions of herself. You see characters like her recur throughout his work. I think it was obvious he was especially fascinated by her both from that famou...

Re: How did you react to these turning points in Twin Peaks?

I mean, I think back then we let kids get away with a lot more (or maybe that was just my mom - she used to watch a lot of stuff like Helen Mirren in Prime Suspect with me as well). And also, for that moment in time, the show was really the biggest thing on TV and everyone watched it, so I think it ...
