Re: Season 3 was incredibly mean-spirited (spoilers)

Mean-spirited? I think you're forgetting the first Twin Peaks. What do you find mean-spirited about the original series? It's difficult for me to think of any such example. The only thing that comes to mind is Lynch's explosive handling of Episode 29, except I really do think he cared about and lov...

Re: S3: Biggest Disappointment About Unresolved Subplots?

I went with Red. The Audrey and Sarah "resolutions" are rather jarring from a traditional narrative standpoint, but I actually kind of love how DKL left them. The ambiguity is clearly a conscious choice, and I far prefer it to the overexplaining of stuff like Judy and the Blue Rose. In a ...

Re: FINAL POLL!!!!!!! Your Reaction to The Return as a Complete Work

It was shit that only pseuds and post-modernists could claim any affection for. This is the kind of fan-judgement on here which is itself incredibly pretentious and arrogant - the idea that anyone who has a different opinion, or rates things that you don't, or even likes them, is a pseud. Nope. End...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

The amount of Gordon Cole in The Return does strike me as pretty excessive and self-indulgent on Lynch's part, in retrospect. He's portrayed in such a flattering light, unsurprisingly - look at the beautiful women he beds! Look at how even Tammy makes goo-goo eyes at him! Did anyone notice that, in...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

I tried to watch Inland Empire last night (had seen it actually 3 times before, but years ago)... couldn't finish it. Got to 2 hours in, will have to watch the rest soon, but man - IMO at least The Return wasn't that shoddy! Certainly aesthetically, IE is so amateurish in sound and image and even a ...

Re: S3: Biggest Disappointment About Unresolved Subplots?

I really don't mean to be flippant, but I don't think Annie is important at all 25 years later in the context of a continuation. She was basically a narrative pawn to get Coop in the lodge, and it's not like Lynch or Frost are terribly invested in her or any mid/late S2-unique characters. Maybe Anni...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

Although TR was quite a mess overall, and 17 and 18 didn't remedy that (i.e. no conclusion to characters like Sarah, Red, Becky/Shelly, etc) I still thought this was a great ending on its own terms, as a mindfuck Lynch movie. Albeit, Green Glove Man and Bouncing-Ball BOB was possibly the worst exten...

Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

Well, only Dallas :lol: And they blew it in their own way. There's a revival that really should have gone full camp pastiche, but instead became a bland shadow of the original. Yeah, I missed that one, you're right. :-) Here though most of the core cast was available, with the exception of Frank Si...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

Sounds almost like you have a vested interest against people discussing whatever element of the show they wish to. Actually I've just been waiting for the conversation about VFX to evolve from the bullet points of "I like it!"/"I don't!"/"I think it's intentional!"/&qu...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

That is absolutely not what I said and a massive misread of my very explicit post re: the European pilot. But whatever powers your victim complex. Oh damn, I'm sorry. It seems I had you confused with that super troll-y poster named Watchlar. Apologies for the mix-up; certainly a low blow to compare...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

Seriously guys, we can't discuss and debate the VFX in a TV show without resorting to ad hominems for anyone who doesn't "get" the brilliance of a particular effect? I'm not sure how much there is left to discuss and debate after the first two hours on 5/21 of "I don't like these FX!...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

It really bugs me when a flawed work like TR which happens to be very ambitious and artful and unconventional gets those really positive reviews - the ones that say basically that this is the ne plus ultra of challenging/non-idiotic TV/cinema/literature/etc, and so unless you're a philistine who ne...
