After having watched the first 3 episodes of 4 released so far, I actually don't have much to say off the top of my head. As David Lynch is one of my favourite directors, I am definitely interested in who's watch it here as either a total newcomer or primarily a Twin Peaks fan. I think it will be controversial to basically anyone but the most avid Lynch fans as it absolutely gives no affordance to anyone. Looks like its set to be an 18 hour art project, which is what long-form media should really be IMO. Just like the original two series subverted family dramas and soaps, this is subverting modern TV dramas and thrillers, including the original seasons. It's David Lynch doing what he does, and perhaps the strangest, least commercial thing to have ever appeared on the medium.

 

Anyone posting spoiler stuff should use the spoiler tags.

Mathijs and I actually thought about starting the series.  When I'm done with Star Trek Enterprise, I'll likely start going through Twin Peaks.

I just finished the original two seasons of Twin Peaks.  The first season was fantastic, but the second sort of dragged on toward the later half.  But... the final episode of season two was genuinely unsettling.  I really enjoyed it.

 

Also... in that final episode, they brought back Laura Palmer and she told agent Cooper "See you in 25 years."  Umm... that aired in 1992.  Season 3 started 25 years after that - almost exactly.  That's incredible detail, needless to say.  I'll start watching season 3 very soon.

Yeah I agree totally, second half of series 2 (after Leland dies) is just a bit of a bore. Really never liked Windom Earle at all. But those last 2 episodes are insanely good. The "I'll see you in 25 years" was definitely their ticket back in, though series 3 is really a whole new story and experience thus far. Maybe the most Lynch you'll ever see.

Yea, just finished the first episode.  Wow... it's turned into sheer horror.  I absolutely love the old-fashioned cinematography with the new quality.  Some of the shocker moments were just so good.  And the bit where they recreated Laura Palmer whispering into Cooper's ear?  Chilling.  Utter nonsense as well.  The Evolution of the Arm is about as Lynch as it gets.  We need to start the Twin Peaks book club since there is too much of this crap that I need to discuss.

Wait, did you watch the movie Fire Walk With Me? I definitely would, it's a bit of a masterpiece (at least after the first 30 minutes which are somewhat detached from the rest of the film). I think it would help somewhat with the new series, and is closer in terms of horror tone.

 

You have no idea what you're gonna see this series either. No matter how far in you are it cannot be predicted.

Oh, there's a movie.  Of course there is.  I'll look for it.  And I've predicted everything so far, so... yea.  The part where the hobo in the prison cell turned into a floating head?  Phh.... saw that coming a mile away.

I'm all caught up now.  Really enjoying the season, but there are some moments when I'm just looking at the time and waiting for Lynch to get a move on.  Like all of these hours of footage with Cooper bumbling his way through life without his memories?  Fun at first, but I sort of want that resolved already.  All of his interactions with the Black Lodge were so good, but now, watching him stumble about just seems like a waste of air time.  And stuff like watching a guy brush a floor for 5 minutes and Candy being disinterested in doing her job...  I can only put so much stock into Lynch's nonsense.

 

Everything else is great.  I'm really enjoying Horne's grandson since he is literally the worst human being in existence.  But really, I just want more jittery, weird Black Lodge stuff.  The monster from the box really set my standards high for the concepts this season.

It's definitely loads of tease. I think after all the 18 hours is out it'll just be a great big movie, that's apparently how they wrote it and shot it, where really 2-3 hours out of 18 of Dougie's bumbling isn't a huge amount. Probably the ending of the series will be Cooper being "released" in some way, whether the good one returns properly to the real world or not.

He's not Dougie!  Well, the moment he wakes up and realizes who he is, all of that build-up should make for a great moment.  Maybe he'll keep loving his fake family and be torn between returning to the FBI or staying with Sonny-Jim and that horrible woman.  Or maybe he'll turn into a salamander and be fed to a strange fat man that exists outside of space and time... I'm up for either as long as it happens soon.  I imagine there aren't too many more episodes left this season.

Great episode last night.  Jim Beliushi and Robert Knepper as the Mitchum brothers is really fantastic.  Those two are golden together.
