I'm not one of these weird trailer fetishists - I don't care if I never see one again, for anything - but that promo really hit the spot

That's a great trailer if you've seen the show but a terrible one if you have not.

Yeah, I think the idea was sort of like "Previously on..." to prepare for the new season. And usually when they do clips like that (for most TV shows), it's to highlight story elements and points that will be relevant to the upcoming episode.

That footage could all be used as a 'Previously on Twin Peaks...' to catch up those too lazy to watch the original series and FWWM.

The only thing missing from the trailer was The Ring- I would think that viewers should know some basics about the ring before watching the new season.

EDIT: underthefan beat me to the 'Previously on..' analogy.

I take it this trailer will be the workaround for the completely uninitiated viewer and I would not be surprised to see it played immediately before The Return premiere episode airs.

My guess is that this is it as far as trailers- we are not likely to get anything else of substance and this could be the last trailer period.

Notice the absence of "How's Annie?"

So curious as to how, or if, that will be addressed.

Yes, we did! And accompanied by that white noise and rumbling bass, it made my day.

My guess is that they decided to drop the character for The Return, and playing the 'How's Annie?' just builds expectations that she will be in the new show, so they are editing that part out.

I've been completely immersed in twin peaks stuff for the last few years, checking these boards daily, listening to umpteen podcasts and following sundry tp social media accounts, but part of me is considering taking a break from all that for a bit after May 21. It isn't quite the weariness with insta-takes and knee-jerk reactions others have expressed - I enjoy reading what people think in real time and will at some point go back to check all the thinkpieces - it's just that with the original series, I had a lot of time to figure out my own ideas about what it meant to me, before diving in to everyone else's theories and opinions. It had time to percolate free of outside input, which we all know is important.

I'm definitely going off the grid. Much for the same reason as you, to come to my own conclusions and interpretations, but also to avoid the cacophony. Places like this forum and elsewhere will be awash with people rushing to comment and theorize and it will be difficult at best to have a coherent conversation. Much to what I'd guess would be quite few people's satisfaction I'll likely be bowing out of these conversations until I'm prepared for a proper post-mortem when it's all over.

-Mordeen


Isn't this easier said than done, though? Checking this site 100 times a day has become a reflex for me and I will feel the absence of my favourite podcast and other content providers very keenly. I'm just banking on the series itself providing enough sustenance for those months, but I'm sure I'll crack at least a few times.

And your posts would be much missed, I'm sure! But in any case, look forward to picking it up in September :)

I've never listened to a single podcast. I only scan articles for new info, only to be frequently disappointed by empty fluff pieces. Since the spoiler thread went down I only come here in fits and starts. It'll be easy enough because of all of the noise. I look forward to returning when the entire series is over and it can be viewed as a whole. And someone is likely to guess the ending and theorize on it in here. I don't want that.

-Mordeen

EDIT: Thanks for the compliment. I try to be a positive and meaningful contributor here, but sometimes I digress.

It could just be that it's too much of a non-sequitur for a trailer that otherwise doesn't include Annie.

They definitely seem to be retconning her out of existence... Hmm.

Totally retconning her out would be super lame.

I believe it's more likely that she died or left town off screen. Mentioning her name during the promos builds anticipation that Annie will be in The Return.

FWWM haters have had plenty of time since Lynch's surprise appearance at the TCA event to brace for impact. If they haven't come to terms with it by now, they may never.

Meanwhile, doesn't that trailer just beat all? Just a tidbit of b-roll of the trees, as a cherry on top of a well edited recap. Almost as good as their FWWM promo. Almost.

"The Darkness of Future Past." Time, time, time. And places. And spaces. Intercourse between two worlds, and the gateway opens in thirty days.
