Twin Peaks Returns : Damn Fine Coffee

Postby freezeblade » Wed May 24, 2017 8:32 pm UTC

aka Twin Peaks II: Lynchian Boogaloo

So I looked around for a Twin Peaks thread, and from searching comes loss.

It's back! I'm only 2 mini-episodes into the first 2-hour long "episode" and It's very...Lynchian. That's pretty much the only word I have to describe it. I was super happy that they had so many members of the original cast back, interesting to see how they aged in comparison to each other.

So far I give it two logs up.

I just noticed the first two episodes are up on Hulu.

I'm having trouble telling how much I'm not doing a good job of remembering the original series, and how much is new weirdness.

I have to agree, it is definitely, just, extra Lynchian.
The dialogue. People saying words to each other
as dialogue.

My tv shut off during
the "I am the arm" scene, and there's a couple places where I'm not sure ... what's supposed to be there.
Is it ... meant to be very obvious the lattes are empty paper cups?

It's pretty good, very cinematic.
There's five or six different distortions of time I"m trying to reconcile and I don't know if that's enhancing or hindering the experience.

I enjoyed S3, but not enough to be jumping to watch it again any time soon. I suppose it was to be expected, but my main gripe is that they just kept piling on the paranormal stuff. In the original series you mainly just had Bob & Mike, the lodges/grove, dreams and visions, the communications received by Briggs, a few people disappearing suddenly... my point being there wasn't too much to stomach. But in the new season there's...
all the coordinates and portals opening up all over the place, the Coopers sometimes easily transported to wherever they need to go, whatever was going on with Sarah and Audrey, and of course Freddie's freakin' glove.

I liked the glass box though. Also, Good Coop trapped in a stroke victim state is easily the most hilarious character I've ever seen on TV.

I also liked how a lot of it was the same old characters in the same old jobs in the same old town. Really depressing if you think about it too much. All the pointless new characters adding extra dull life to it.

A lot of 2001 vibes, along with the Lynchiness.

I just watched Part 8.

If we thought we might get clarification on things, we were mistaken. I don't exactly mind the "show, don't tell," but I also wouldn't mind chaining David and Mark to a chair and getting them to spill the beans.

Spoilers through Ep.8
So... the atomic bomb opened a rift to the Black Lodge (and myriad other dimensions), a spirit thing birthed a plethora of souls, Bob among them, and Mr. Homn and the Fat Lady sent Laura to Earth to save it?
