PostThe Twin Peaks Thread - It has happened again, for real
by Eighthours » Fri Oct 03, 2014 5:00 pm

David Lynch and Mark Frost just tweeted this at the same time:

Dear Twitter Friends: That gum you like is going to come back in style. #damngoodcoffee

:o :o :shock: :shock:

They must know what they're doing. Surely they can't be trolling us like that, it would just be cruel. Could Season 3 FINALLY be a done deal?

UPDATE: And it is! Showtime have greenlit a 9 episode (EDIT: 18 episode) third season, with all episodes to be written by Mark Frost and David Lynch, and directed by David Lynch.

FUUUUUUUUUUUCK. :shock: :o :shock: :o :D :D :D :D :D :wub: :wub: :wub:



Episode 1/2 (2 hour premiere) reviews:

‘Review: In “Twin Peaks,” an Old Log Learns Some New Tricks’ (The New York Times)

“Mr. Lynch’s mastery of tension persists,” writes James Poniewozik “The script, by him and Mr. Frost, recognizes the power of silence and anticipation. And Mr. Lynch, who is directing the entire revival, still has his penchant for dualities and eerie beauty.”

But he also notes that the first installment of the new “Twin Peaks” is a bit tonally inconsistent, observing that, “At times it feels as if a nostalgic 1990 version of the show is alternating scenes with a colder, harder-edged 2017 version. Whether and how the two come together may determine whether this sample, one-ninth of a unitary work, has staying power beyond the class-reunion phase.”

‘“Twin Peaks: The Return” and the Search for David Lynch’ (The New Yorker)

Film critic Richard Brody is less enthusiastic about Lynch’s return to television. “I don’t know whether he filmed “The Return” sequentially but the first hour and a half feels like a filmmaker under cobwebs, working not merely tentatively but conventionally, following patterns rather than inventing, recording and divulging information rather than creating,” he writes.


‘Splendid “Twin Peaks” Reboot Is Very Much Itself in Its Long-Awaited Return on Showtime’ (Los Angeles Times)

In one of many reviews that contextualize “Twin Peaks: The Return” within a 21st-century prestige TV landscape the original series helped to create, Robert Lloyd notes that, “In some respects this is a show that has clearly been made in a world that has seen ‘The Sopranos’ and everything ‘The Sopranos’ made bankable. Yet it remains very much a David Lynch film; and if it doesn’t aim to replicate the mood of the original — the stylistic cribs from 1950s big-screen romances and B-grade thrillers that animated the original series have been tamped down — it is more like that ‘Twin Peaks’ than like anything else on television.”

‘TV Review: “Twin Peaks: The Return”’ (Variety)

In an ambivalent review that questions Lynch’s apparent lack of interest in human nature, Sonia Saraiya concludes that, “‘Twin Peaks: The Return’ is weird and creepy and slow. But it is interesting. The show is very stubbornly itself — not quite film and not quite TV, rejecting both standard storytelling and standard forms. It’s not especially fun to watch and it can be quite disturbing. But there is never a sense that you are watching something devoid of vision or intention. Lynch’s vision is so total and absolute that he can get away with what wouldn’t be otherwise acceptable.”

‘“Twin Peaks” Is Back, as Strange and Stunning as Ever’ (Uproxx)

Alan Sepinwall expresses some relief that the premiere “never felt like a brand cash-in — Lynch and Frost returning to their most famous creation for lack of other ideas — nor like a show that had no business existing outside its original time and space.” He adds that, “for all of its self-indulgence with pacing and content, and for all off its opaqueness even by ‘Twin Peaks’ standards, this felt thrillingly alive and fresh, even as it was continuing a story that Lynch and Frost had to abandon back in 1991 due to low ratings and various bad creative choices.”

‘“Twin Peaks: The Return” Is Riveting, Horrifying, and Patience-Taxing’ (Vulture)

In an appraisal that seizes on the reboot’s difficult, experimental feel, Matt Zoller Seitz writes, “I was riveted,” and recommends watching without interruption, in a dark room, “on the largest screen possible.”

“But,” he wrote, “I didn’t see much evidence that the new ‘Twin Peaks’ is going to pivot anytime soon and turn into the show that people remember, or think they remember.”

‘In Its Nightmarish Two-Part Return, “Twin Peaks” Is Pure Lynchian Horror’ (A.V. Club)

“If you were looking forward to a return of the sometimes campy, sometimes cozy humor of the original two seasons of ‘Twin Peaks,’ this premiere could come as a shock,” Emily L. Stephens warns in her recap of Sunday night’s episodes.

But, she adds, “If you, like me, had heard whispers that this revival was going to be Lynch’s vision almost entirely unconstrained by network notes — if you, like me, were buckled in for two hours of uncompromising surrealism and horror, this premiere delivered.”

So good.

Would be so good to see this come back - I absolutely loved the series back in the day, and having caught a few episodes recently on SyFy it still manages to be completely absorbing.
I called off his players' names as they came marching up the steps behind him....All nice guys. They'll finish last. Nice guys. Finish last.

They should do a Fargo on it. That would be amazing.

What with the FWWM deleted scenes having just been released this year and now (potentially) this, it's a great time to be a TP fan.

Having said that, if they are going to do something new, I hope it's neither a reboot nor a direct (25 years later) sequel. Rather, I'd prefer if it was something tangential to the original series; set in the same universe but focused on a different aspect and with allusions to the original characters and storylines used sparingly. With Frank Silva no longer with us, I just don't see how a direct continuation of the Cooper storyline would work. You cannot recast Bob!.

I haven't seen the show in a while so my memory might be sketchy but didn't it finish with cooper being trapped in the black lodge and there was something about seeing cooper again 25 years later. Could it be possible they could continue it with Kyle Maclachlan getting out of the black lodge.

EDIT: did a search and it was Laura Palmer who said it

In the original Twin Peaks finale, the ghost of Laura Palmer said she would see us again in 25 years. In 2015, it will be 25 years since the first season was originally broadcast.

I loved the atmosphere and series 1, but series 2 (and who killed Laura Palmer) was a bit BS to be honest. Having said that, I'd no doubt tune in for a further series. :fp:

It does get more and more surreal. But it's easy to forget with a sort of sitcom like this that David Lynch is a surrealistic filmmaker. Watch some of his stranger films and it's no surprise at all, something I did a few years later.

Twin Peaks Returns! Showtime Orders Limited-Series Continuation of David Lynch-Mark Frost Classic

Turns out all of that Twin Peaks revival buzz was much ado about something. TVLine has learned that Showtime has given the green light to a nine-episode revival of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s seminal ’90s drama series.

I’m told this would not be a reboot but a present-day continuation — in the same vein as TNT’s Dallas. Also, sources confirm that Lynch and Frost are poised to pen all nine episodes, with Lynch directing every installment.

Lynch and Frost confirmed the news early Monday on Twitter.

As good a reason as any to finally start watching Twin Peaks on Netflix.

I saw them first. Eraserhead almost put me off eating chicken for life. What the strawberry float is wrong with that man? Twin Peaks actually seems quite normal compared to some of his late 70s and early 80s "works".
