Re: TWIN PEAKS BACK IN 2016

Though Eps 1 & 2, thought it was ****ing incredible. Extremely happy and surprised at how well it turned out. If the rest of the season is that good...wow.

Re: TWIN PEAKS BACK IN 2016

Alright, so I have a couple of questions regarding episodes 3-4. These might be stupid as I feel like I must have missed something, but I don't have time to read all the super in-depth analyses around the internet so I might as well ask here.

DO NOT READ if you haven't seen eps 3-4.

Re: Dougie. A friend spoiled me on this theory before I watched the episode, but watching it with this theory in mind, it made a lot of sense (of course, could have tainted it as well):

Just watched the first 2 and was blown away. So weird, so great.

Can't believe we'll be getting new episodes through early September.

Re: TWIN PEAKS BACK IN 2016

Damn. I watched all 4 episodes and am totally obsessed. This is genius-level stuff. There are some great shows airing right now but David Lynch just **** on all of them. I was tempering my expectations but clearly there was no need for that.

Yeah that makes a lot of sense, tyty.


PS. Holy **** it's fun to speculate about everything, it's going to be an awesome summer WTFing at everything week to week. Not that I wouldn't love to be able to marathon it all immediately, but this show is made for epic OOTV discussions/speculation.

Re: TWIN PEAKS BACK IN 2016

I'm glad it's going to be a week by week thing now....binging the firs 4 episodes was exhausting...too much to take in a ponder all at once.

Re: TWIN PEAKS BACK IN 2016

as someone who is very slow to get through TV shows, and has a long list of top tier television to get through, can a convincing case be made for me watching all the back stuff to catch up on this show? i like slow stuff like mad men, but the fact that nearly half the comments online revolve around how 'WEIRD!!!!' twin peaks are is a little offputting to me.

should i just go watch something like mulholland drive (never seen), and if i like that, proceed with twin peaks?

Re: TWIN PEAKS BACK IN 2016

just watch the pilot...if you like it, continue...if not, don't bother.

Can't imagine anyone not liking the pilot, though.

Re: TWIN PEAKS BACK IN 2016

Yeah, I'd agree with that. Mulholland Drive should be viewed at some point regardless, but the Twin Peaks pilot is considered a great episode and sets the tone for the series quite well. You'll know what you're getting into.

Re: TWIN PEAKS BACK IN 2016

Of course liking the pilot is required to continue and get through the original series but seeing Mulholland Drive is a good shout for the current series.

When watching the Return it has definitely struck me that it is similar to what a Mulholland Drive universe tv-series could have been like, which was the original plan.

More and more have come to recognize it as a masterpiece and in recent years it's been increasingly near the top of various recent greatest films lists. I could definitely see it being something great enough to ignite a spark or an appetite, a fascination, for Lynch and the return of Twin Peaks.

Ok some random thoughts and impressions on many things part 1-4.

This will probably be messy.
