Re: Part 14 - We are like the dreamer (SPOILERS)

Opinions; Another astonishing Part. Lynch's acting has really surprised me this season. He's really expressive. Both alert and tense, and goofy. Being British, Freddie's whole "London Tahn" accent felt pretty caricatured to me, but I guess Twin Peaks has always done that (the Buenos Aires ...

Re: Part 13 - What story is that, Charlie? (SPOILERS)

Opinions; This Part was so great. I was disappointed with 12's removed atmosphere, and this one was a really beautiful 'people' part. The stuff with Mr C. was intimidating, and scary. Particularly when Ray knew he could get really fucked up by the doppelganger. It seems Mr. C's simple shooting of hi...

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

I feel like doing this. Things I've liked: - The more emotional scenes; be it the uplifting ending of Part 11, Cooper drawing on the case files, Carl Rodd's compassion, Laura's orb or Bobby, Shelly and Becky in the RR. There are too many to list here. I feel they are some of the most rich and moving...

Re: Part 12 - Let's rock (SPOILERS)

If there was one phrase I could use to describe this Part, it's stunted. Emotionally stunted. The Chet Desmond namedrop was a little forced, and the 'Blue Rose Task Force' was ugly, sounding like a bad anime. Cole is proving to be far more complex than I'm sure many of us anticipated, both with his ...

Re: The Roadhouse scenes performances (SPOILERS)

- The Chromatics have been the best act on the show for me by far, one that actually felt integral to the events unfolding around them, contributing heavily to how moving the ending of Parts 1 & 2 was. I couldn't sleep (having to stay up really late in the UK) after the premiere, and that song w...

Re: Part 11 - There's fire where you are going (SPOILERS)

I love this quote from an article by Decider.com: Suddenly, the lounge pianist strikes a plaintive key, the mood shifting toward airy melancholy. The piece is “Heartbreaking,” an Angelo Badalamenti original (but it sure sounds an awful lot like a stripped down rendition of “The Theme from Love Story...

Re: Gender in Twin Peaks: The Return (SPOILERS)

Exploration can be good and healthy, but if the focus shifts to a sardonic study of the commentators' political orientation, (and I get that the two are intertwined to an extent) I'm not interested, and if it's used to smartly put each others' ideas down about a TV show, not OK with that. Twin Peaks...

Re: Gender in Twin Peaks: The Return

I feel Lynch does not make 'themes' in his work, it's about individuals. If a particular individual is violent, and feels powerful being violent, towards women then that is what Lynch has chosen to define that character. I can't speak for Frost; he's very political, and I try not to be. But, as a fi...

Re: Make your wishes for the remainder of The Return! (SPOILERS)

- I hoped The Return was going to be a little more wintry, but it's not. - Sheriff Harry Truman and Cooper, with Badalamenti's aching music. - Bowie as Jeffries, archival footage or secret new footage. - Less linear 'Frostian' storytelling. - Annie's OK. - More of the woods, and that feeling from th...

Re: Part 10 - Laura is the one (SPOILERS)

Of everything this Part threw at me, and I loved this one, Johnny staring into his freaking teddy bear is going to stay with me the longest. That was both deeply unsettling and deeply heartbreaking, much like many of the more violent scenes. But there was something so tragic in that situation. Maste...

Re: Part 9 - This is the chair (SPOILERS)

I have a lot of faith in Audrey in this story, so it hasn't been something I've thought deeply about. I'm so curious to see how Janey-E exits the story. At first I found Watts' performance to be kind of grating and one-note, but I think I've fallen in love with her "don't fuck with me" att...
