Twin Peaks

Post by Consigliere_11 » 21 May 2017, 20:31

So, season three is coming today in the U.S., and it will be broadcasted in one of our local channels tomorrow night, which will be a rare occasion for me to watch something live on TV :lol: Anybody else is exited about Season 3? I guess we could discuss the series here, if someone is interested

My favourite show of all time. What should we do regarding spoilers?

Well, I don't really know - I guess in regards with the first episode we can discuss our initial impressions at first and then, when others catch up, move on to the spoilery parts. The weekly schedule gives time for the interested people not to fall back dramatically, so hopefully it won't be a problem.

Gosh, I am really exited about what's coming. People that saw the premiere say it's phenomenal and is the next step for Lynch. It's so great that the network gave him full control this time!

You don't understand how excited I am to see a FULL SERIES directed by the greatest film director working today. No series 2 plot slip-ups, no lack of focus, hours upon hours of fucked up imagery and tension.

I read some of the initial vague reactions to the preview, and I've never been more excited. These few hours are going to drag.

I really wanted to watch episode 1 tonight but I haven't actually season ANY of the previous seasons so I decided against it, at least until I've caught up.

Worth watching then?

150% Tom.

I can tell those four episodes are going to polarise people... Part 1 contained one of the scariest moments I've ever seen on television.

I think I've just got to dive in then.

I have just watch the first two episodes of Season 3... This was pure horror and madness, all I can say now, but the 2 hours felt like 30 minutes.

Edit: For now I will avoid the spoilers and try to sum up some of the emotions. By the end of the second episode I was relieved when I saw a couple of old characters at the old place. Lynch does not want to stick to the past, and that's fine, but the maze of new locations and all the terror that he brought during those 2 hours remind me that Twin Peaks in the original run was not only fear-giving, but also weird, witty and funny at certain points. I found those traits only in a couple of scenes of Season 3, which concerns me a bit.

If you haven't seen episodes 3 and 4 yet, I think you'll like them a bit more. I couldn't stop laughing.

I just watched Episodes 3 and 4 and it definitely got better. Episode 3 was still too surreal, but the fourth one was sooo good and some of the moments were hilarious in their awkwardness.. like the Michael Cera scene :lol: And the last scene with Albert, it brought me back fully. I can't wait for the story to unfold!

I love the surrealness and the boundary pushing, but that comes from being a fan of Lynch's early work, like Eraserhead and the short film stuff. But Cooper in the casino is bound to spark some meme creativity :lol:
