Re: ‘Twin Peaks’ Returns As Showtime Limited Series

I never really watched Twin Peaks in its heyday, probably in no small part because I was young at the time and had no clue what the show was about. But given what I've read about the show, I might see if I can take advantage of this.

Re: ‘Twin Peaks’ Returns As Showtime Limited Series

This is such wonderful news. I thought they would never bring it back. At the very least, this gives Lynch an opportunity to give the show a better ending. I wonder if Bobby Briggs will return. He's one of my favorite characters.

Re: ‘Twin Peaks’ Returns As Showtime Limited Series

I guess I should finally watch the show. I always resisted before because I knew it ended with an unresolved cliffhanger and I knew couldn't handle that.

Re: ‘Twin Peaks’ Returns As Showtime Limited Series

I'm a little concerned that it won't be a patch on the original, but Lynch and Frost being heavily involved is good news. I'm excited despite my worries.

Re: ‘Twin Peaks’ Returns As Showtime Limited Series

I've been listening to the 'Twin Peaks' soundtrack ever since I heard the news and I'm getting pumped.

As 'Seven of Five' suggests there's a chance it won't be as good as it once was, but I won't let that damper my enthusiasm.

FYI-- The original Twin Peaks is included with a Hulu Plus subscription, through Netflix streaming or $1.99 an episode at Amazon.

Same here! That said, I started watching it on Netflix last week. Still halfway through the pilot episode, but I like what I've seen so far.

You started watching last week, and you're halfway through the pilot...

I guess you really like to slow things down and take it all in.

I can dig it.

Except for The Straight Story, I have no idea what ANYTHING by David Lynch is about.

(Then again, that's the only one of Lynch's films that he didn't write as well as direct, so that probably explains it.)

Well, Lynch is far more concerned about subtext and thematic meaning than text (I don't think there's ever been a more meticulous director when it comes to mise en scene), but I've always found his work to at least have something of a defined narrative. Mulholland Drive is easily his most accessible film because it was written for television, but I guess his only film I haven't ever really wrapped my head around is Inland Empire, which is just bonkers on a whole other level.

To each their own, though, of course.

"Unresolved" isn't really the problem. It's the novelty characters who outlive their usefulness and become a tiresome burden. If you watch, best strategy is to skip straight to the final episode after the murder mystery is solved (mid 2nd season).

This is probably the way anything by David Lynch should be watched--but I think he was saying he started watching it and hasn't had time to get back to it yet.
