Re: Twin Peaks Season 3, Star Wars, JJ and Fan Service

There was a time when my Star Wars and Twin Peaks fandom was on an equal level, before the prequel trilogy came out. I was super geeked about the release of The Phantom Menace. I just saw The Rise of Skywalker, and I don't even know if I can call myself a Star Wars fan after 20 more years of Star Wa...

Re: Mr. Robot Finale Thoughts (Spoilers)

I also noticed the nearly identical structure of the end games of Lost and Mr. Robot (using a sci-fi plot mechanism to create a red herring theory to explain a possible alternate timeline). It's interesting to me that I found it worked much better with Mr. Robot. One reason is just the fact that my ...

Re: New Star Wars Getting Skewered

I'll see it later next week with my niece and nephew, as I have with all the new Star Wars films released around Christmas, and that's probably the main reason I'm not just waiting until video. I guess I enjoyed the first two in the series well enough. I can't say I had particularly strong positive ...

Twin Peaks and Watchmen

There's a thread about Watchmen in Hap's Diner, but one explicit connection between Watchmen and Twin Peaks is that Jeff Jensen is one of the Watchmen writers, and he co-hosted Entertainment Weekly's Twin Peaks podcast with Darren Franich. Jensen co-wrote last night's episode of Watchmen, and they r...

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

It's fair to question the role of women in S3, but the issue is very nuanced and twitter is an inherently poor platform to express it. It comes off that SF is primarily upset that she didn't have a bigger role, but she only has 280 characters to say anything. Kyle was the only headlining star that w...

Re: Watchmen

I think it could be up there with Part 8 of Twin Peaks honestly. There are some things that were reminiscent. The use of black and white to go to the past, it standing apart from the rest of the episodes of the series in structure and tone, experimental/trippy visuals and tone, etc. There was even a...

Re: Twin Peaks Actually Explained (Youtube)

like others have said, trying to interpret twin peaks (or anything lynch), is 100% subjective b/c lynch never reveals his motivations for anything. so to me, this theory is just as valid as many others. and he makes a better case for his viewpoint than others which is why i like it. i personally do...

Re: Watchmen

The origin story for HBO's "Hooded Justice" may be the most fascinating super hero origin story ever conceived. In and of itself, that may not be saying a whole lot. I don't know that that most super hero origin stories even want to be fascinating, they just need to explain the hero's powe...

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

Another revival that came out at the same time as Twin Peaks was Samurai Jack season 5. It was well regarded and it did take the character and the story in a completely new direction. It was similarly derided by a segment of the fan base who didn't approve of the new directions.

Re: Twin Peaks Actually Explained (Youtube)

I listened to this guy on a podcast. I didn't come away from it feeling like it would be worth the time to watch this whole thing. I watched the intro of the video. He described himself in the podcast as "creator-centric", and it seems he's attempting to create a kind of definitive "c...

Re: Watchmen

Anybody watching the HBO show? As a longtime fan of the comic (and of Damon Lindelof’s TV work), I’m really enjoying it. The Jeremy Irons stuff is clearly influenced by Audrey Horne on TP:TR (not tonally, but in terms of the disorientation re: time/place/context). Irons is having the time of his da...

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

Frost is also active on twitter, and while most of his posts are about politics, anything that is tangentially Twin Peaks related has fans blasting him about Season 4, so he's well aware. It doesn't mean the silence is definitively indicative of anything... but it's basically impossible that they ar...

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

That is what you're saying. I don't see any other way of parsing it. As a 3rd party observer, I would not parse it that way. People have different opinions on speculation and some seem unduly challenged and argumentative about that. I don't get the point of arguing and insisting someone is saying s...

Ok... wow. I've seen people grasping at straws for ambiguous tweets but that one takes the cake.
