Re: General Discussion on Season 3 (All Opinions Welcome)

What about the sick zombie-esque girl with the unknown disease and her honking mother in Part 11? I think that level of panic and confusion goes along with what you're saying as well. Definitely. I think there's also something also to be said for The Return's fixation (or mere acknowledgement) of h...

Re: General Discussion on Season 3 (All Opinions Welcome)

The Thing is the most relevant Carpenter movie to today’s situation... It's funny you mention that -- I was watching Adrienne Barbeau watch the supernatural fog creep across the beach and into her town, and I couldn't help but think of the current situation. But yeah, The Thing is most relevant and...

Re: The Pilot

I don't remember Jean-Michel Renault's specific words in Part 7, but his claim that his family has owned the Roadhouse for decades could be read as an over the top boast. Almost every criminal in film/tv makes similar statements about running a city, neighborhood, or particular industry. It's usuall...

Re: General Discussion on Season 3 (All Opinions Welcome)

I watched John Carpenter's Starman for the first time in decades. The alien has instances where he just repeats the words of people. Then he goes to Las Vegas and manipulates two slot machines to win a ton of cash. It's probably just a coincidence, but you never know. I've been rewatching a bunch o...

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 4? Or is it over after this?

Mulholland Drive: The Return. Just calling it in case I'm right. I always felt like Inland Empire was a kind of thematic sequel to MD. Just the whole plot of an actress losing her identity in a movie role felt like it could've happened to characters in MD, had it continued as a series and more abou...

Re: General Discussion on Season 3 (All Opinions Welcome)

I wonder if anybody has mentioned this. S3 has at least one Arthurian reference - Lancelot Court - and I believe another, correct? I was watching "Knightriders" the other day, a movie I'd never viewed despite being a Romero fan. (SPOILER) The movie's characters are inspired by the King Ar...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

I personally have no qualms with TP having a new season on Netflix -- I'd just hate for the entire season to get released at once. That model seems to work well with certain shows (OITNB, Stranger Things), but I really enjoyed having a week to sit with each individual episode of S3.

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

There's still no guarantee they'll want Twin Peaks for this, but CBS' new streaming service needs marquee content *badly* after the weak performance of CBS All Access. With David and Mark still leaving the door open, it wouldn't surprise me at all if CBS/Showtime greenlit season 4 to add to the all...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

This is just blind speculation on my part, but I wonder if the all the CBS/Viacom merger stuff would potentially be hindering any talks with Lynch/Frost over a new season. The fact that Showtime canceled Ray Donovan seems to not bode well for the chances of a Season 4, I think. Also, the reports of ...

Re: Part 15 - There's some fear in letting go (SPOILERS)

Not sure if this is relevant to anything, but one thing that always stick out to me about Norma's interaction with Walter is his insistence on the Double R restaurants carrying Norma's name ("Norma's RR Diner"). Norma refuses obviously, but I can't help but think this is somehow in contras...

Re: The biggest problem with The Return - the fear/mystery element largely missing?

I think Mr. C might have been more of a Windom Earle re-do than any sort of recreation of BOB/Leland. That probably wasn't Lynch/Frost's intent, but Mr. C's quest for JUDY was primary narrative thrust of S3, much the same as Windom Earle's search for the Black Lodge structured the last 6 or so eps o...

Re: LMFAP original season 3 script page!

I think maybe the original idea was an unnerving symmetry. This is done also in The Missing Pieces - the trio of scenes where LMFAP repeats the line of returning home. But I'm glad we got what we did, too. Mike's repetition of his Fire Walk With Me poem is, and this is the real risk of the idea of ...
