Re: Season 3 Magazine Coverage and Articles Worldwide

And let's not forget: no-one forced Lynch to walk away from TP the first time around . Kimmy Robertson would do well to get her facts straight instead of perpetuating the same old same old rumor whenever she feels like crapping all over season 2 and the collective efforts of people who worked reall...

Re: Listen to the sounds....

Good observations. And of course, the skipping-needle scene in E14 features the white horse, who is linked to the Woodsmen in P8. As I’ve mentioned , the “gatekeeper” Woodsman’s machine in P15 contains a record player (a new addition which wasn’t in Jürgen Prochnow’s version of the same machine in ...

Re: Listen to the sounds....

Good point, that it might be the radio station vinyl in IE. That never occurred to me. I tend to envision old-time radio plays being done live, but I believe many were in fact pre-recorded, particularly the ones with more elaborate production values (like The Adventures of Superman).

Re: Listen to the sounds....

You could easily say that it's a mutual fascination between Lynch & Frost. There's Jacoby (or was it Jerry?) who had the sheds converted into speakers and the huge vinyl collection in TFD, and keeping in mind that Frost wrote E14, with the Leland & Maddy vinyl-skipping scene. Then you have ...

Re: Listen to the sounds....

The record theory ties in (at least as leitmotif) with the Leland & Maddy death scene, that when Jeffries sends cooper back, he flips the 8 around and changes track much like a record, and there's also that the Woodsman swipes a needle off a record to begin his broadcast. Good observations. And...

Re: Season 3 Magazine Coverage and Articles Worldwide

You know, that's a great point I'd never considered. Even without the executive meddling, the setup of the series involving other directors & writers was probably doomed in and of itself in terms of Lynch's disenchantment ... I think it's also worth pointing out how Mark (according to Reflectio...

Re: Thought Gang Album Out November 2

Very cool news. I’ve been waiting for this forever. The “Woodcutters” track was presumably written for that abandoned video game DKL was writing. I noticed that connection as well but wasn't that game developed in the late 90s? These tracks were recorded in 92-93. So it seems if anything, the game ...

Re: Season 3 Magazine Coverage and Articles Worldwide

The forced resolution of the “Who Killed Laura Palmer” arc (which Mark has said he endorsed at the time but now regrets) may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back for DKL, but I think once he was forced to confront the realities of conventional TV production, the whole process was anathema...

Re: Emmy Nominations thread

Well, for what it's worth, Versace is actually quite bold and uniquely compelling. It's as much a thriller with disturbingly real horror elements as a melodrama as a psychological profile as an historical and political document, and the sprawling time hopping narrative is challengingly fragmented, ...

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

None of us knows for sure, but I could certainly envision Donna/LFB in the “rhinocerus/turquoise” scene with Steven. I wouldn’t put it past L/F to conceive that scene as a loving tour de force comeback for LFB, if she felt she was up to it. Again, I’ll note that DKL is no stranger to redeeming paria...

Re: Emmy Nominations thread

Sadly, there is almost no chance of Lynch or Frost winning. And if one or both of them does, I will eat my hat on this forum. Underestimating their ability to subvert all expectations is a dangerous game...! That doesn’t mean they have the superpower to change the hearts and minds of Emmy voters wh...

Re: Emmy Nominations thread

There is surely a shift in tone. But I do not think this can be attributed to the change of network. I think Brooker still gets to do whatever he feels like. I think Netflix is very creator-friendly (the new season of BoJack Horseman goes to a place most networks would veto on any show let alone an...

Re: Emmy Nominations thread

Metalhead seems to be the most polarizing episode of Black Mirror, possibly because there's less story than usual, but as a horror and aesthetics fan, I loved it and thought it was flawlessly done. It's also especially interesting/relevant to a discussion of Part 8 because of its near wordlessness,...

Re: Emmy Nominations thread

I love Black Mirror, but the “U.S.S. Callister” episode doesn’t exist in the same universe as TP P8. From a technical standpoint, the former is a lovingly executed tribute to a 50-year-old series; the latter is the only thing of its kind in the cultural landscape. This is a pretty clear demonstratio...
