Re: NON SPOILERS: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Showtime Thread

thanks :-)

My half memory of what the sleep deprivation did last time makes me think that I'll be in the perfect mindset for new TP come April/May.

Re: NON SPOILERS: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Showtime Thread

Yeah I'd got used to reading the Spoiler thread just for something to do, and suddenly there are actual spoilers in it! Nothing amazing as far as I can tell (though I jumped out pretty quickly). It'll be really odd watching the series waiting for these random moments to crop up. I'm hoping that I co...

Re: SPOILERS: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

Have finally finished the book after it arrived earlier in the week. I also skimmed most of this thread. I think the book confirms that series 3 will be fascinating. The early insistence on the dichotomy between mysteries and secrets, and the late summary that all of the anomalous happenings have a ...

Re: 'The Secret History of Twin Peaks' novel by M. Frost 10/18

Finally got my copy, after Alvin Straight's lawnmower delivery service reached Australia. I was expecting to find it a reasonably distracting curio that would contain the odd clue here and there, but would otherwise be a dry read due to the format. I was completely wrong! I raced through the first 1...

I have now seen the book. They have it in a book shop in Adelaide. Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for my copy to arrive from Amazon, so I couldn't buy it. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

My copy of the book just shipped from Amazon, but with a delivery estimate to Australia of November 2nd?! Are they sending it by lawnmower?!!!

Re: 'The Secret History of Twin Peaks' novel by M. Frost 10/18

yep, just got that. I'm in Australia so I'm not going to read it for ages. Luckily I just found a surprise fete for old age pensioners, and have David Niven's bawdy memoir to tie me over.

Are there any better options than Amazon at this point? Cancelling is an easy option.

Re: Twin Peaks Poll - First Time

I'm actually reminiscing now. Bravo was bloody good at that time. The Prisoner, Twin Peaks, Troma movies, The Saint, Danger Man, the list is endless. Plus I was 12, so my brain soaked it all up.

Re: Twin Peaks Poll - First Time

Bravo 1993 airing. Then my brother and I won the VHS tapes in a magazine competition. Amazing!

Thanks for reminding me of the Bravo date. That means I was 12. Blimey.

Re: What is the audience?

I know a few people who have picked up on the buzz around the series and are determined to watch the old one before the new one airs. I think it helps that a) TP is a known classic, b) it's not really that long and c) Lynch is well known even if they haven't seen TP (an entire generation seems to ha...

Re: 'The Secret History of Twin Peaks' novel by M. Frost 10/18

Apologies if this has already been suggested, but if there is a second volume, it might indicate that the series will be split into two parts.

Then the second book would come out between the two blocks of shows. i.e. this might tie in with the 9->18 hour expansion.

Re: Episode 29

I really, really love the Prisoner. In the 90s, I watched both Twin Peaks and The Prisoner on Bravo, a UK satellite channel devoted to old shows. Both ruined TV for me really, since I have never seen anything that lives up to either of these shows for sheer originality. My parents came to visit me i...

Re: Episode 29

yep, I've seen that film (after getting a nice cheap Bava boxset) and I always assumed Lynch ripped it off. There are similarities with The Prisoner finale from 1969 as well which intrigue me.

It's also clear that Tim Burton took a heap from Bava.
