Thats not the case, at least in Argentina, the only thing on Netflix is THE RETURN.

If you wouldn't mind, perhaps in spoiler tags (?), what is it that makes season 10 better?
. But then the wildly stupid/ironic thing is that the six tacked-on Covid episodes strike me as unquestionably the weakest, most tired episodes of the entire run! But along the same lines the really interesting thing is that the climax of Season 10's actual finale (episode 16) required a ton of people/zombies to be crammed altogether as an integral and intricate component of the plot, which you most certainly could not do during Covid times. So it just makes a really interesting juxtaposition going from the actual, mass-populated, shot-on-film finale to the tacked-on, sparse, shot-on-digital Covid-era episodes. Gives you a lot to ponder in that regard.

I have a hard time keeping Walking Dead seasons straight. I don't consider it any great show.

The all-out war stuff with Negan was cool. It reminded me of recess in elementary school. The Samantha Morton whisperer stuff was alright, the covid episodes with Carol hunting down a rat by herself in a house sucked. I love Jeanne Dielaman, but watching Carol look for a rat, cant do it.

The Negan backstory episode was okay, but covid prevented us from seeing anything of him actually as a gym teacher interacting with a class of high school students, mostly just described etc. His wife's cancer diagnosis was just a CU of her face with a doctor's voice off screen, so many obvious covid shortcuts.

Jennifer Lynch directed a few eps pre Negan era.

Ah, so maybe I misunderstood. For some reason, I thought it was all three seasons.

Greetings Underthefan!

Regarding Dern's words about what Lynch is working on, I take her to be responding as an actress to the opportunities the project will offer for her. As in, it could still be Twin Peaks but she could play both Diane and another character, or transform whilst trapped in a jail cell. :lol: So there would be no boundaries for her as an actress.

In terms of 'radical', what Lynch project has not been that in one way or another? You mention 'radical' as in an original project but without knowing what that project could be, its hard to know how it could be more radical than more Twin Peaks that was completely different to what we might expect.

Lastly, with regards to Kyle MacLachlan and a number of the Twin Peaks cast up to Sherilyn Fenn posting the #wisteria photo craze, there is no doubt that has to link in with this new project. All of these cast members must meet-up in a Zoom call and discuss posting these Wisteria things - that doesn't mean that they know precisely how it relates to a new project though of course. We saw a photo of one Zoom meeting, during this pandemic I fully expect the Twin Peaks alumni have checked in with each other similarly.
Hey, Norm! You could very well be right about what Dern was referring to. And I agree about the idea of what "radical" could mean. Certainly Inland Empire could be considered radical for a film and so could The Return when it comes to cable TV. I'm still skeptical as far as what TP cast members may know and how much we should read into their posts. As far as I remember, no cast members other than Kyle knew for sure about The Return until the Lynch/Frost joint tweets. So I would believe that Kyle and Laura may know something, but very much doubt about Andrea, Sherilyn or Michael. I think they're just as curious as we are and having a bit of fun with the rumors. I guess we'll have to wait to find out but guessing is definitely fun!

So, what’s the consensus? A film or a new season?

The Return was in a way both film and series. Lynch himself called it a film, although he clearly edited the Parts to air as standalone “episodes” with themes, arcs, etc. I imagine that if this is one long story (as opposed to an anthology series, which I half-expect), he’ll continue to break down the distinction between film and episodic television. Although it is interesting that the copyright filing was for thirteen individual scripts, whereas TR was one long one.

I'm thinking either an anthology series of movies OR a two-part season A and B like the next Ozark.

But The Return was both, hence my first comment. I'd argue the return could even be deemed a selection of anthology-like mini movies that were edited into an overall 'season '

I really, really hope it is not an anthology series. I can't think of any of those that are consistently good (and that criticism includes "Hotel Room").

I depends on how you define "anthology series", I guess but Steve McQueen's Small Axe series on Amazon is fantastic. It's basically just a collection of 5 different films.

Yeah if they market and distribute them as individual titles then that's lovely. Otherwise anthologies usually end up being inconsequential overall or just bloated/uneconomical within each installment.

Dekalog is an exception.
