The entity in the glass box in New York City looked like a grey alien. Wasn't Major Briggs involved with alien contact, if i remember well?

Re: TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN - Discuss the past, present and future of all things Twin Peaks
Can I watch this without watching the original seasons?
 Quoting: neocide

The original seasons and movie are essential to understanding what's going on in the revival. Otherwise you're going to be pretty lost.

They are definitely worth watching though! Check them out. :)

If not the first season, at least a viewing of Fire Walk With Me is in order.

I'm a big fan of the show. Just rewatched season 1 & 2 recently to refresh my memory for season 3.

BUT.... I am really disappointed with season 3. It just felt too stupid to watch.

I never watched it, but it is right in my back yard. I've eaten at that cafe and didn't even know about the tv show.

I guess I missed out?

 Quoting: Diener und Herr zugleich



That whole NYC glass box portal thing is very compelling as an opening meme for the series, considering there's been 25 years for, um, other planetary conjunctions? to have caused interactions...or, what happens in twin peaks is simply one part of a widespread dimensional portal system that an alphabet has tapped into.

From the moment I saw the guy sitting on that couch STARING at at that box in a warehouse, my mind was like 'whoa! That's some clandestine government op going on!" I guess we're soon to find out more on that count.

That odd window looking out at the cacophony of city lights with muted stars in the night, then the box. It wasn't until a later shot that I saw a hint of the tube, but, I totally did not expect the tube to extend outside, or, Coop to materialize into and through it, OR...bleed back into a wormhole.

I have to wonder if 'it is future, or is it past'...meaning, before the couple on the couch is attacked, because the glass is intact when Coop floats in. We really have no idea how long that box has been around, and WHY it has an extension to the outside.

Is it supposed to be a closed-looped vacuum of some sort, designed to 'pull' things toward it?

My mind also has me thinking of ley lines and other 'ethereal' connections.

The possibilities are exciting!

All I really know is that I'm going to watch it at least once more this week, to see what I missed first time around.

Project Blue Book, blue rose, trans-dimensional entities/aliens, deep gov. conspiracies etc.

For fuck sakes, one of the first things out of Agent Cooper's mouth in Season 1 was- "I wonder what really went on between Marilyn Monroe and the Kennedy's, and who actually pulled the trigger on JFK." That was 25 years ago. I'd bet my life without TP, places like GLP wouldn't even exist today.

This show is a GLP'ers wet dream.

I know not everyone's flavors are the same but this show has EVERYTHING we talk about here at GLP plus badass music and sexy women.

Re: TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN - Discuss the past, present and future of all things Twin Peaks
Thanks for posting about Twin Peaks, Beast333! I'm a big fan, too, since the original airing.

My first impression was that this season is much darker than the original series, even surpassing FWWM in tone and vibe. There's a lot to take in that's going to need more than one viewing, at least for me, to pick up on and notice. Figuring out how everything ties together is going to be fun.

I'm wondering, though, if the book Mark Frost wrote, The Secret History of Twin Peaks, ties into the new season. I read a little of it but never finished.

Gotta admit, I loved the scene at the Roadhouse where Shelly stuck up fo James: "James was always cool". It felt like a jab to all the James haters. As much as I hated the James/Evelyn storyline and cringe at the Doo-wop sing-along with Donna and Maddy, I truly do like the guy lol.

Well, Amazon and Showtime still have the original series.

But I know what you mean. I was in New Orleans some years back before I started doing genealogy. While I did find, and go to, a street that bears my family name, what I DIDN'T know was that during the 3 weeks my hubby and I lazily flitted about in the city, I had walked on, drove past, and hung around the very same streets where I later found my dad's family had lived, worked, played...besides the cemetery where they're all interred in THE family crypt.

One day I'll go back, but what a missed opportunity that was finding out.

I just looked this up.

Netflix has the original 2 seasons, only.

Hulu has both the original and New episodes. I get this from my brother, who doesn't appear to have Showtime...but, I was able to start one of the episodes.

We get Showtime on Sling. I just did a search for the first two seasons, and it LOOKS as if it comes with sling for free. Hmm.

It also has The Music of David Lynch, which I just saw for the first time while searching. I LOVE his songs on the series, so I guess I'll be listening. They are mesmerizing.

Amazon Prime has the first two seasons for free. That's 30 EPISODES, but a way to start if you have Amazon.

Amazon also has a 7 day free trial for Showtime right now, which would allow you to watch the later movie Fire Walk With Me', and last night's two episodes. If you're paying, you also can watch the original 30 episodes

They will also include immediate access to a subscription to Showtime for $8.99 a month.

Hope this helps.

Too bad Laura Flynn-Boyle put too much plastic on her face.

I hope the best for her.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74524139


Who?

Seriously - fuck Lara Flynn Boyle! She bailed over a quarter of a century ago from the series. Didn't even do the Fire Walk With Me movie. The character of Donna Hayward was needed for the movie. And Lara let everybody down by refusing to do it. No other cast member did this. Most would NEVER say no to David Lynch about anything. And for the record, Moira Kelly did a much better job at playing Donna Hayward. Much sexier, too.

So now, Twin Peaks is back and she's not needed anymore. Sorry, Lara, but you never bite the hand that feeds. And besides, Twin Peaks is certainly better off without you!


:dalethumbsupgif:
 Quoting: BEAST333


Yeah Lara Flynn Boyle is a bitch in real life I hear. Good riddance and I agree about Moira Kelly being the better Donna.

I liked James for his innocence in the face of having grown up the way he did. The motorcycle is more a symbol of his needed to fly from that life, and fly into something more tangible...a world with hope, where love is enduring and real.

The early episodes play much like a soap opera, so I saw James in that light. Soapy and sappy, but, honest and true. Which made him an anchor for struggling youth at times.

I'd like to hear more about Frost's book, also.

Furthermore, she suffered some pretty traumatic experiences, while trying to navigate Hollywood as a young woman. She was only a teenager when she was cast in "Twin Peaks", for god's sake, and she'd had a very difficult childhood, as well. Add in all of the Hollywood manipulation, brainwashing and such...and it's no wonder she had a difficult and challenging path, which affected her career choices.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74938155


That implies she had some traumatic casting couch sessions, which probably started when she was underage... I hope she heals.

Re: TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN - Discuss the past, present and future of all things Twin Peaks
I loved the original show and loved this episode. I will make some interesting thoughts I had about the start of season 3:
1) Cooper has been controlled by Bob the entire 25 years since season 2 and is even looking like Bob (hair etc).
2) I believe Bob is the owner of the see through box (Bob is probably very rich) and is part of his plot of him not going back to the other world.
3) The grey alien was most likely the arm thingy with the tree head.
4) I believe this episode was more like Fire walk with me then a normal episode. The episode has no music AT ALL till right at the end, at the Bang Bang Bar. This was done on purpose and is a tell to us, the audience that the show is heading back to what the original series was like.
5) I believe the murders Bob did 25 years ago (Lara specially) and the murders he has done in this episode were somehow an effect by him so he could stay in the material world. His goal is to live, and he will do it by any means.

Great episode, so many questions. I feel sorry for Cooper :(.

Re: TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN - Discuss the past, present and future of all things Twin Peaks
So we just watched the very first pilot for series one and my question is does it get any better? this seems overly the top dramatic and downright corny at times.

We are always late for these series, we actually just started the walking dead this past winter and binge watched every season until we were caught up in only a month. I didn't think I would like TWD but we ended up loving it.
