Twin Peaks The Return (spoilers once the show airs)
« on: January 24, 2017, 11:17:15 PM »
After mentioning it twice on the "sequels long after" thread I decided to start a new thread for the upcoming show.

I started watching the original series again. Has anyone ever noticed that Air Force Major Garland Briggs could possibly be Air Force Major General George Hammond from Stargate SG-1? Its not just that he is the same actor, both characters are remarkably similar and investigations into the Twin Peaks phenomenon along with his involvement at listening post alpha would certainly put him in a position to be in charge of the SG-1 team and for security reasons he would have to change his name.

Now this is really creepy, The look of disgust on lynches face when interviewing the Palmers is just amazing followed by the looks of joy when speaking to Laura. The whole thing is so uncomfortable.

Wife says we should watch this together.  I've never seen the original, only the porno parody (I assume, since it shared the title).  Will be glad to give the "going in blind" perspective.

You mean you are going to watch the new series without watching the  original or you and your wife are going to start at the beginning ? I recommend the later and envying you getting to experience it for the first time.  Cuddle up and enjoy a cup of hot black coffee along with a piece of cherry pie together when you do.

I am taking you up on your idea, and starting rewatching.  This will be my fifth viewing of the series in its entirety.  Almost done with the pilot, and I remember every inch of why I fell in love with this show.

I liked Season 1. But Season 2 was very hit and miss. Mostly miss for the last half of the 2nd season.

If you haven't seen the movie "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me", don't. It is a steaming pile of turd.  ???

I love pretty much every bit of Twin Peaks, but the later bits of Season 2 are definitely lesser than the rest.  Less than wonderful isn't nearly "bad," though. 

I'm very badly looking forward to the upcoming, and I'm more optimistic than is probably reasonable.

When it was good in season 2, it was really good. But it was inconsistent. Much like David Lynch's movies.  ;)
But "Fire Walk with me" is just weird. For the record I hated "Mulholland Drive" as well. Lynch is hit and miss for me. Brilliant at times, overblown, confusing wankery at other times.  ;D

I loved season 1 and liked season 2, fire walk with me would have been better if it was unrelated to Twin Peaks.

"Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery" (2014) contains 90 minutes of edited footage shot for "Fire walk with me" that fleshes out the story and explains things for most of the original characters.

The reveal of who killed Laura, most of season 2, and the theatrical release of FWWM are typical examples of a studio screwing around with things they don't understand (Lynch runs into this more than most other directors ie Dune)

Still I cared so much about the characters as well as Lynches filming style that I still enjoyed S2 and FWWM when they came out.

I never saw that episode and cant wait to check it out. I was never that into SG1 so i'm missing a lot of the story.

Edit: wait, i just figured out that you are talking about a completely different show, I have never even heard of "Psych" and thought you were referring to an episode of SG1 that pays homage. Wow thats pretty cool, it even has TP cast members, Ill be sure to watch that, thanks.

An amazing episode, the music scenes at the roadhouse really holds up the nice creepy vibe.

I actually love the movie. The scene in the bar is very hypnotic, and the whole story is pretty depressing. The movie overall is much more Lynchian than the series is, though, so I can see why some might not like it very much. I would agree, though, that the series (especially the first season) is even better. I think it's probably my favorite TV series of all time.

"Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery" (2014) contains 90 minutes of edited footage shot for "Fire walk with me" that fleshes out the story and explains things for most of the original characters.


I wish they would release a cut of it with The Missing Pieces edited in, because I felt a lot of those scenes would have added to the movie and explained some things better.

EDIT: My sister once wanted to borrow the series from me, but she took home FWWM by mistake. Needless to say she was a little confused, and she's never asked to see the series since. }|:op
