God dammit, I won't be able to watch 3+4 until tomorrow so I'm steering clear until then. But man oh man the first two <3

Also the chromatics owe lunch at least $30

Oh fuck it we're watching 3 right now

God this day has been awesome

The evolution of the arm was genuinely unsettling and an elegant workaround given Michael J Anderson's instability of late, and the attempted passage out of the Lodge reminded me more strongly of the more abstract passages in Eraserhead than anything Lynch's done since. (I have to wait until tomorrow at least to watch episodes 3 and 4, so I'll be staying out of this thread until then.)

one way street, Monday, 22 May 2017 03:18 (two years ago) link

do I need to watch the original Twin Peaks before watching this

sexualing healing (crüt), Monday, 22 May 2017 03:23 (two years ago) link

Yes

one way street, Monday, 22 May 2017 03:24 (two years ago) link

It won't make sense unless you've watched the series and Fire Walk with Me.

one way street, Monday, 22 May 2017 03:24 (two years ago) link

I mean, insofar as it makes sense so far.

one way street, Monday, 22 May 2017 03:25 (two years ago) link

Well sky are being slowcoaches about putting the next two up so I will just say

Loved what they did with the arm, I got huge eraserhead vibes too

The red room is as weird as ever but it feels a bit like some of the "good" lodge inhabitants are speaking a bit too plainly at times?

I guess they recast Jeffries & maybe maj Briggs too?!

?!?!?!?????!

James is cool

in a soylent whey (wins), Monday, 22 May 2017 03:29 (two years ago) link

Yes, very pleasantly surprised by how reminiscent of Eraserhead this was in places.

So...that was Jacques tending bar at the end, yes?

human/hutt hybrid (Old Lunch), Monday, 22 May 2017 03:31 (two years ago) link

I think I laughed harder at "James is cool" than any other line in the first two episodes.

one way street, Monday, 22 May 2017 03:40 (two years ago) link

It definitely looked like Jacques!

one way street, Monday, 22 May 2017 03:41 (two years ago) link

Also, yes, the Log Lady scenes were heartbreaking.

one way street, Monday, 22 May 2017 03:42 (two years ago) link

I do appreciate that Lynch decided to not just maintain the continuity of having a bad Dale running free in the world but to completely upend any sense of fan service by making him irredeemably awful.

human/hutt hybrid (Old Lunch), Monday, 22 May 2017 03:53 (two years ago) link

Matthew Lillard has aged worse than anyone who was on the show.

took me a minute to place it, but did the arm reminded me of the gamesters of triskelion

Now tv still not coming through 😔 might have to go to bed!

The violence/horror in this was so upsetting tho I don't know that I want to sleep lol. The South Dakota & New York scenes are the stuff of nightmares

The palmer house is still a hellish place

A small part of me hopes Robert Forster's part in this is as large as his role in mulholland dr & we just get told he's gone fishin every week until the finale where he's in it for one minute

xpost Just a brief repurposed scene of Bob and Doppelcooper in the Black Lodge from the final episode.

human/hutt hybrid (Old Lunch), Monday, 22 May 2017 04:08 (two years ago) link

i guess the only grievance i have is the occasionally really artificial quality of the effects (and which is probably magnified for me by how this is filmed digitally) but even in this respect they remind me of lynch's animation

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Monday, 22 May 2017 04:09 (two years ago) link

Ah god I have to bail if pt 3 chatter is starting up, fuckin rupert murdoch son of a bitch

Enjoy, those of you who can! :-)

in a soylent whey (wins), Monday, 22 May 2017 04:10 (two years ago) link

I'm determined to wait on 3 and 4 until next week, so I'll probably be bowing out of here soon. I'm just still kinda reeling over this. It's actually happening, and so far it's actually exactly what I hoped for (a new Lynch project that actually feels like a natural progression from his recent work and that continues the story of Twin Peaks in ways that are completely unpredictable and that sears a number of unique and indelible moments onto my brain).

human/hutt hybrid (Old Lunch), Monday, 22 May 2017 04:16 (two years ago) link

The thing that came out of the box, the other thing sitting on the prison bunk, the evolution of the arm, the various distortions within the Red Room...they're all already enshrined among the pantheon of unshakable Lynch imagery. And I'm only two effing hours in.

human/hutt hybrid (Old Lunch), Monday, 22 May 2017 04:20 (two years ago) link

Oh, and MacLachlan squishing the old dude's face. Momentarily hilarious until you realize what ultimately occurred. That's our Lynch

human/hutt hybrid (Old Lunch), Monday, 22 May 2017 04:21 (two years ago) link

Only watched up to episode 3 but shit, this is really good!

Straight up near cried during the Log Lady scenes...

What about goddamn Jerry Horne, btw! So much stuff I've already almost forgotten. I may need the week of downtime to rewatch.

Okay, yes, I'm out. You guys have fun and we can all talk about Cera next week.

human/hutt hybrid (Old Lunch), Monday, 22 May 2017 04:48 (two years ago) link

my initial feeling is that it's like if you took every aspect of TP (except, notably, for the soapiness) and amplified it tenfold - the banal parts are more banal, the goofy bits are goofier, the infuriating bits are more infuriating, the surreal bits are much more intensely surreal.

a serious and fascinating fartist (Simon H.), Monday, 22 May 2017 05:09 (two years ago) link

i wanna celebrate a specific thing about episode three but i think i'll wait until tomorrow when more ppl have seen it

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Monday, 22 May 2017 05:10 (two years ago) link

needless to say this is everything i could hope for

there's even a minor soapy moment wrt the principal and his wife! i loved it

Critical scene: delivering shovels to Dr. Jacobi

Moodles, Monday, 22 May 2017 05:34 (two years ago) link

I appreciated how disconnected and nearly unintellible the first episode was. But by the end of the second, it felt like all the strands were coming together. This show is truly uncompromising. Love it.

I imagine the room with the glass box is probably some wing in Lynch's house where he conducts his experiments with time and space.

Moodles, Monday, 22 May 2017 05:37 (two years ago) link

only two episodes in, far far better than i was expecting. the cinematography in particular is staggering (except the weirdly conspicuous effects as bradnelson mentioned upthread). biggest distraction/downside so far is this is the whitest thing i've seen since the last australian thing i saw.

i'm sure lynch wasn't thinking about any of this when he picked vegas but it's just interesting to me the way the identities of the different places in the third season brush up against each other. new york seems like another planet (and we're only ever in the interior of a building so it might as well be)

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Wednesday, 27 February 2019 17:40 (one year ago) link

oh i'm pretty sure he was thinking about it! he's very sensitive to that stuff.

affects breves telnet (Gummy Gummy), Wednesday, 27 February 2019 18:36 (one year ago) link

he just doesn't like to talk about it (or almost anything else) in interviews.

affects breves telnet (Gummy Gummy), Wednesday, 27 February 2019 18:37 (one year ago) link

Mark Frost picked Vegas tbf

A funny tinge happened on the way to the forum (wins), Wednesday, 27 February 2019 18:58 (one year ago) link

Lynch said since the initial announcement that frost came to him with a particular idea for what the new series could be and Lynch loved it and they started writing; sometime after the show finished he was doing an interview with a French magazine and they asked what that original idea of frost’s was & he said something like “dale Cooper wakes up in an empty house in Las Vegas” “and it just went from there”

thank you for that really excellent info wins

I just finished my first rewatch a couple days ago. It's consistently amazing to me how much more coherent Lynch's works become on a second or third viewing, although that was almost certainly aided in this instance by not having to wait a week between every installment.

I can't remember if this was ever brought up while the series was airing, but among the details that I first noticed while watching in higher def is the hilariously-wonky family portrait behind Lucy's desk.

Has anyone said that it sounds like Angelo Badalamenti is playing the chords to New Order's Subculture in the cherry pie scene at the casino, before going into "Heartbreaking." I mean, I thought it did.

Invisible (Noel Emits), Tuesday, 25 June 2019 18:11 (nine months ago) link

that's not Badalementi

but yeah re: Subculture

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 25 June 2019 18:18 (nine months ago) link

That may explain why he didn't look like the guy I previously thought was Badalamenti. Anyway, the music.
