Re: Twin Peaks Season 3, Star Wars, JJ and Fan Service

Finally watched Rise of Skywalker and had prepped myself to be disappointed because of bad reviews, and I LOVED it. I’m scratching my head as to why many reviews were so critical. I feel like some critics disdain anything that comes across as nostalgic in sequels regardless of quality. Instead of j...

Re: Episode 2

That opening dinner scene reminds me so much of many of the long lingering shots in TR (Roadhouse sweeper, etc.). It plays slightly more conventionally only because it has credits rolling over it. I’m really noticing and loving the use of “one-ers” this time around. I believe the entire scene of Coo...

Re: Episode 1

That “Help me” moment has always been one of the more confounding touches in this episode. I wonder whose decision that was. Dunham’s? Frost’s? It’s especially weird because the voice doesn’t seem to be Sheryl Lee. Maybe it was such a last minute choice she wasn’t available? But that doesn’t even ma...

Re: The Pilot

The Roadhouse/Book House stuff is definitely weird. Obviously L/F hadn’t planned it out in detail yet. But based on what we later learn....the Roadhouse is owned by the Renaults and is used as a drug running front. Yet it’s also a haven for “the bikers,” several of whom are also Bookhouse Boys. Who...

Re: The Pilot

I think as I rewatch, I’ll also do a running feature on Cooper’s coffee intake and food fetishes, for fun and future reference... — A tuna fish sandwich on whole wheat; a slice of cherry pie (which he describes as “worth a stop” and “incredible”; he tells Albert it’ll kill him); and a cup of coffee ...

Re: The Pilot

Started a rewatch today. Seemed like ideal timing, being grounded at home and all. First time I’ve revisited the original series since TR aired. TR didn’t color my rewatch of the Pilot too much, but Cooper driving past the “Welcome to Twin Peaks” sign took on an ominous/tragic air. Perhaps it alread...

Re: Episode 1

Something I always think of when I watch this episode, but something that may be bloody obvious to even the casual viewer, is what exactly is the motive for Jacques spiking Ed's drink? Surely he wouldn't have had the foresight to suspect that a fight would break out any moment, or maybe it's just a...

Re: Season 3, The First Draft - Speculation etc.

FWIW, I take his answer about Mr. C’s phone call as pretty definitely stating that the person on the other end of the line is Judy/Joudy impersonating Jeffries in order to find Briggs. I'm curious why you think that? Not disagreeing, would just love more of your thoughts on it. I remember the big t...

Re: Conversations With Mark Frost: Twin Peaks, Hill Street Blues, and the Education of a Writer

I can’t recall if anyone has mentioned Appendix C, the letter to Ed Victor, presumably circa 1990 (he alludes to the first season just having been finished). Clearly he had TSHoTP, or an untitled version of it, worked out in pretty good detail from VERY early on. It’s actually kind of incredible to ...

Re: Season 3, The First Draft - Speculation etc.

Finally digging into the chapter on TR (after having flipped around in it and read the tidbits in the forums here). It’s interesting that Frost, who had no real involvement in FWWM, was the one who advocated for Desmond’s return. He says Lynch didn’t show Frost anything in post, but Duwayne would oc...

Re: Peaks Fans Top 10 TV shows

and also goes out of his way to call Carlton Cuse’s Nash Bridges—the show which also gave Damon Lindelof his start—“really average”...he might well be right, I’ve never seen it, but it kinda feels like a calculated jab). He also comes across as rather disdainful of The X-Files, rather surprisingly....

Re: Season 3, The First Draft - Speculation etc.

I'm sure I remember reading an interview with him where he said that his first idea for bringing the show back was Cooper materialising in the empty house in Las Vegas. I can't remember the source. My theory since then has been that Mark Frost wanted to focus partly on the US situation after the fi...

Re: Peaks Fans Top 10 TV shows

The LOST love in this thread is great. Also I too was a huge fan of Invader Zim and being a world-weary teen at the time it seems you're destined to have that show stamped onto your heart. Also it seems your Leftovers write-up got snipped in the middle, I would have liked to read it! :) It warms my...

Re: Season 3, The First Draft - Speculation etc.

Mark says that “a lot” of the Las Vegas material and the Dougie “comedy of errors” came from him.

Re: Conversations With Mark Frost: Twin Peaks, Hill Street Blues, and the Education of a Writer

Someone really needs to ask Lynch about the “Josie drawer-pull” thing. By all accounts, this seems to be his biggest contribution to the latter half of S2 prior to E29. I’d love to hear his take on why that was the thing he became fixated on.
