I really hope that this is a very public negotiating tactic. I dunno. If Lynch isn't doing it, i don't want them to do it at all.

to be honest, the more i think about it, the more i feel like, if they've got the scripts from Lynch and Frost, as it's said they do, they can find a good high-quality director to bring those to screen. obviously Lynch would be first choice, but i'd rather see those 9 Lynch/Frost scripts get filmed by someone if it can't be him, as long as it's someone good.

oh no, if someone besides Lynch handles things the show might actually make sense! :-P

Takashi Miike aped Lynch's style pitch perfect in GOZU.
Nicolas Wingdings Refn aped one aspect of Lynch's style pitch perfect in ONLY GOD FORGIVES.

Both those guys would do it.

IMO Twin Peaks was such a unique show that anyone other than the Mother/father/creator of it would pale in comparison, and ALWAYS leave us wondering "what if Lynch did it". This isn't like X-Men for example, that can be interpreted in many fashions.

the best TP episodes were the ones that Lynch directed. but there were many good episodes directed by other people too. (yeah, and a lot of sucky ones in season two after he left the show). i just think you can make a very good version of the show still without his directing.

brad d studios:
Exclusive Interview with Twin Peaks Co-Creator Mark Frost!
BD: So what stories and mediums influenced you most growing up?

MF:
I would say that I was equally entranced by fiction and film. I was initially swept away by classic adventure authors like James Fenimore Cooper, H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, H. Rider Haggard. As I got older I got a little more populist in my tastes and embraced pulp fiction like Doc Savage and Tarzan. I also became a comic book collector in my early teenage years, particularly the silver age of the Marvel Universe and that led me into Tolkien and fantasy and sci-fi like Heinlein, Leguin and Bradbury. After that, I got more into adult fiction.

On the film side , I grew up in the era of James Bond and the great adventure movies of Lean and Hitchcock, and came of age in the 70’s, a golden age in American film making. The Godfather, Chinatown and Raging Bull – that whole canon through that decade really had a huge impact on me.

BD: What else would you say was influential in your early artistic development?

MF:
Well I started writing myself, inspired by all those influences but also by television shows like The Wild, Wild West, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Mission: Impossible, Star Trek and The Prisoner. I began writing novels when I was ten or eleven and had written 3 by the time I was fifteen. So I knew pretty early on that storytelling was the path for me.

But I have absolutely no idea what is going on in these new episodes.

They say if you re-watch the last 3 episodes of season 2 you will be in somewhat better shape for the new episodes (well at least the Black Lodge stuff).

Myself, 25 years is a long time for me to remember the intricate maze that is Twin Peaks so I'm watching the series again with giddiness.

Loving this so goshdarn much. To the point where I'm super defensive when anyone says anything bad about (I may have no avatar, but I still have mod powahs, so watch it...). I bet at least 80% of the mystery's blown right past my dense noggin, but I still catch the odd bit of weirdness (like the diner customers in the last episode completely switching around the moment that dude comes in looking for Billy). I feel like Twin Peaks may have revolutionised TV all over again.

MacLachlan really is putting in the performance/s of his life here. I'd bet money that a conversation along these lines will take place between him and Naomi Watts in a future scene:

Janey-E: "Dougie, this chicken coop we bought is too small; the chickens can't breathe in there. Do you hear me, Dougie? They need more coop air!"

Dougie: "Coop-air... Coop-er."

Um, yeah...I neglected to mention Fire Walk with Me, which is fairly critical in the Twin Peaks flow chart.

Just started Part 1. They are hopping around the globe a bit...Las Vegas, New York, North Dakota. Oh how I love David Lynch, let me count the ways.

Wait, I know you've become a little shakey as a source of information since that whole 'late, great Alan Arkin' thing, but there's a dead mod on that list? Say it ain't so!

I still think about vic sometimes. Think I swapped a message with him not long before...

And watching Twin Peaks is like looking at some dusty black and white movie where everyone onscreen, including the little boy doing a delivery round, is worm food; except this was only shot last year.

Oh death, won't you spare me over ‘til another year?

Ye Gods, episode 8, the birth of Bob, wasn't just Twin Peaks' peak, but television's peak*. The most beautiful horror‡. I can't wait for the ensuing dreams when I watch this whole series in one fell swoop. It's actually started me meditating properly again just in case I can glean a fraction of the creativity TM gives Lynch.


*until it's inevitably topped by a later episode


‡§I always thought nightmares were a great trip, at least the far out, eldritch kind and not the ones where your whole family dies and you wake up actually mourning them. I think Lynch must be on the same page as me

§I know you're supposed to put a single dagger/Jesus' cross footnote symbol thing here and not a double one, but how often does one get the opportunity to go double dagger?†

†I really have to read that J.G. Ballard book made entirely of footnotes to the sentence, "Notes towards a mental breakdown."

Holy crap! What a sensational hour of television. Oddly, I feel like I understand it - I just cannot put any of it into intelligible words. Nuclear explosions are to blame for unleashing these evil atrocities from other dimensions. Birth of Bob, birth of Laura Palmer.....

Seems like bad Coop has had some non consensual encounters and which kids are a result of that.

I am a little ticked off with the last 3 episodes.

The log lady died.
Audrey Horne has become a whiny middle aged woman.
And I don't really care about the band that plays at the end of each episode.

I guess I am feeling a bit impatient with the series at the moment.

finally, indeed.

the pace of this "season" has caused me to look back more kindly on season 2. perhaps now things will pick up a bit.

My thoughts on the 2 part finale of Twin Peaks last night...

I think in it's true essence Lynch feels that evil is ruthless and unrelenting and good will never give up.
Coop's mission was always to save Laura, but Laura's fate was meant to be tragic- she can't be saved. Cooper will never give up.
Life is messy and there are wins and losses.
Lynch gave us many wins but big losses as well.
Because we all love Cooper so much, we want him safe and happy but it's not who the character is or any of the FBI Blue Rose guys were/are. They are all lost in dimensions fighting for good or turned into tea pots - depends on your perspective.

I'm sad the show is over AND I love David Lynch's work.

I watched this Showtime series first episode last night, thinking that it didn't matter that I hadn't watched Twin Peaks since 1991. Was never a fan per se of the original series or that movie, but I know I watched them in college.

While it was great to see that Lynch went straight up batshit crazy from the first second of this new series, I had no fucking idea what was going on, so I bailed after 10 minutes.

it was a long, slow, confusing season. a few excellent moments, but also entire episodes that felt like wasted space. i think the more you enjoyed the original show, they more you would get out of this. it might be interesting to re-watch at some point, but i have no particular desire to do so, and probably not for a long time.
