I haven't had cable tv since 2009.

Had it installed yesterday just to watch TP3.

Looking forward to discussing with any forum members who are going on the journey.

As I would expect from Lynch, Iím not even able to rank his films. For years Iíve thought MD was his best, but after TP3 Iím not so sure.

I love them all but some are harder to get through than others.
Troubles A Foot Posted - 06/18/2019 : 15:05:56
Hm, I'd say no for various small reasons (the shot on video but not in a fucked up way like Inland Empire, some of the bands featured that I did not like, etc.), but it's still a magnum opus of a work for the guy.

I'm always torn between Mulholland and Fire Walk With Me.
Bedbug Posted - 06/18/2019 : 09:44:29
Is it Lynch's best film?
Troubles A Foot Posted - 06/17/2019 : 17:37:06
well DUH it is

Jim Jarmusch said TP3 is the best American cinema of the past decade

That is really fascinating. Almost scary to think about.

I like the 25 Years Later site, and also the artwork of Rinaldo Zoontjes. Some great TP fan stuff out there.
Troubles A Foot Posted - 03/26/2019 : 11:39:48
Yeah. My favorite thing lately about Twin Peaks is that it's always been this neverending loop. So when you finish the series back in the day by watching Fire Walk With Me, it circles right back to the pilot (AND EVERYTHING WILL PROCEED CYCLICALLY... (cut line from FWWM)

Now it's kind of the same thing, you finish season 3 and that also kind of works in going right back to the pilot. You just can't get out of the loop.
Bedbug Posted - 03/26/2019 : 03:04:03
I'm starting Season 1 again. The pilot is so emotional. And going back to it now, after all these years and after S3, it's like a whole new experience and a familiar thing all at once.

Do you visit any Twin Peaks fan pages?




Sopranos and Mad Men are practically the same show (same writers, same tone and in a lot of ways, same themes and structure and even humor and surrealness and etc), so if one interests you, you may naturally be interested in the other. Mad Men is brilliant and incredible and hilarious and I was insanely sad when it ended, because I haven't liked a show as much as Mad Men since that last episode aired. It felt like the end of an era to me.

I'm still amazed when people haven't watched Sopranos yet! David Chase (the creator) said Twin Peaks was the biggest influence on Sopranos, so that gives you an idea. It's a work of art. It's also hilarious. And terrifying. And sad and complicated and...

Buffy is an interesting one, as complex and thematic and layered as the others, but unlike Sopranos and Mad Men, it's not really showy about it (ie it can be goofy and funny and feels like a normal tv show, not exactly "cinematic" like Sopranos)...it has the veneer of a campy teen show. I was unbelievably obsessed with it for years.

But there's reasons why there's a ton of books written analyzing Buffy. It's probably the singular show about what it's like to be a human being and all of the tragedy and problems we face in our lives. Like I can really just think of Buffy and Sopranos as the two that are really about LIFE in every way. The writers on that show worked so hard making (nearly?) every episode highly metaphorical and allegorical and thematic...and once the show gets into seasons 5 and 6, in my opinion, it kind of transcends everything and becomes a singular work of art. Long story short, it blew my damn mind.

I am on the Twin Peaks reddit often but sometimes I get frustrated there and leave for periods of time! I posted a bunch this week though.

I'd only offer Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and The Sopranos. Maybe Mad Men. But yeah, Twin Peaks, especially now with season 3 is still the most uniquely peculiar and intensely fascinating.

Not just on purpose too...Like I find the bad points of the show to be fascinating. I find it incredibly interesting to see Lynch's directorial touches in some episodes and then totally absent from other episodes. I find it really interesting to see when a non-Lynch director evokes Lynch really well, or fails at it. Etc, etc. I'm incredibly obsessed with Mark Frost and David Lynch's collaboration or anti-collaboration, where they both do things without the input of the other. Insane! As an entire work there's just nothing like it.

Wow this is crazy. A friend of mine emailed me to say he's finally watching Twin Peaks. So I got this intense urge to watch it along with him (not physically with him). So now I'm like 10 episodes in again. This is like my 5th time watching the series.

Bedbug Posted - 07/16/2018 : 18:48:36
I believe itís in the song ďDonít Clip Your WingsĒ that reference is made to Sonny Jim, which of course is a character in TP3.

Is it future? Or, is it past?
Bedbug Posted - 06/23/2018 : 16:51:18
However, I for one am not clamoring for a season 4, simply because season 3 was so perfect that it really doesn't need any more.

But... if it were done right, just as Lynch would do it, then of course I'm game.

And, for the hundredth time, this is where the comparison between TP 2.0 and Pixies 2.0 breaks down. One was just as good if not better than the original, and the other was vastly inferior to the original, though still enjoyable.

David Lynch says "more Twin Peaks is calling him."

https://theplaylist.net/david-lynch-twin-peaks-calling-20180623/

We live in a world with more FBF and more David Lynch, how bad can it be?
Bedbug Posted - 06/16/2018 : 20:14:37
There's a good analysis called "The Broom is Not What It Seems" which deals with the infamous 2 1/2 minute sweeping scene and makes some good sense of it.
Bedbug Posted - 05/29/2018 : 10:00:27
About to start my 6th viewing of the series. You can't believe how much sense the whole thing makes after you watch it enough times. It's almost straightforward at this point.
Bedbug Posted - 03/23/2018 : 08:31:58
The website ď25 years laterĒ has a snippet from a book coming out by JB Minton called The Skeleton Key to Twin Peaks.

The theory of the book is that Laura Palmer is the true bad guy.

Looks cool
Bedbug Posted - 03/05/2018 : 09:23:14
And now, after the Oscars last night, Kobe Bryant has one Academy Award, and David Lynch has zero.
Bedbug Posted - 02/26/2018 : 10:13:49
I'm getting ready for episode 8 again, and am preparing to look at it like Lynch's take on the creation narrative, beyond even Bob or Judy, but for the entire woods and the world beyond the woods, the stars and everything we know. Interpretive.
Bedbug Posted - 02/06/2018 : 07:19:25
By the way, I'm on my fourth time through season three, and if there is any downside to this it is that the series actually starts to make a lot of sense and is less bewildering.

I felt the same way about Mulholland Drive.

I'm sure Angelo Badalamenti and most likely David Lynch himself were influenced and inspired by Suicide, some of the music on their debut album is simply terrifying (Frankie Teardrop) and has that dreamlike otherworldly vibe.

Know FB is a big fan of Suicide and Alan Vega (covered Rocket USA) but I've only recently had a good listen. Any other fans?

Here's a link to the song for reference

Thanks for that, loved it.

I just finished the second time through and am about to start the third go 'round.

The reviewer at NY Mag said the finale was so disturbing to him that not only can he never watch it again, he tries not to think about it.

The Maharal Posted - 12/12/2017 : 12:34:57
What a series huh? I must do a re-watch at some point.
Bedbug Posted - 12/12/2017 : 04:10:55
New York Magazine / Vulture listed the top ten best TV episodes of 2017 and TP3 had the top two spots, with number 2 being the two part finale (episodes 17-18) and number one of course being episode 8.

"Gotta light?"

Bedbug Posted - 09/12/2017 : 05:47:20
Yes, I've heard the theory that if you watch episodes 17 and 18 at the exact same time on two different screens then.... something awesome happens.

Not sure I'll be doing that anytime soon, but I love that people give it a go
pot Posted - 09/09/2017 : 14:26:03
Maybe all 18 episode are meant to be watched in sync.

Maybe episode 17 and 18 are the same episode and we just think they are different.

I don't really give a fuck either way to be honest. I made soup today using a giant onion, one of two who were given to me by last years onion club winner. I'm going to make another one later in the week with the other one, then I can call it Twin Soups.
The Maharal Posted - 09/09/2017 : 03:27:17
Another interesting one that 17 and 18 are sort of in sync together. https://medium.com/@onantiad/episodes-17-18-of-twin-peaks-the-return-are-meant-to-be-watched-in-sync-81352ce38e8

Great theory!



Thank you for sharing that one, that was excellent!

The Diane wearing a bathrobe thing - that's what Andy and Lucy gave Naido to wear in the jail no? Naido then turned into Diane with Cooper's touch.

Yeah that whole Bobby scene was incredibly intense. The incessant beeping of the car was what got me.
Bedbug Posted - 09/08/2017 : 06:25:52
Also, the scene where Bobby finds out that the bullets that came through the window were shot by a father and son who could care less, and then there's a panicky mom with a zombie type vomiting daughter in the car seat next to her. That was insane.
