How about a Twin Peaks / David Lynch appreciation thread?
I am a huge fan of the show and have watched it about 5 times within the last month. Are there any other fans out there?
If there are how excited for the new season are you?
I'll give you that, a lot of his shit is super weird
I quite liked the second season but there was a drop off in quality when the Laura Palmer arc was "resolved" but I think it picked up towards the end of the second season. I still love the whole show regardless and don't think it should have been canceled.
That game is almost a direct rip off of Twin Peaks and with shittier dialogue. The gameplay was also complete ass. Why is it so fucking good though. Motherfucking Swery65
Yeah it definitely devolved into more of a soap opera for a little bit with all the tacked on love plots and James Hurley making out with every fucking girl in sight. I think if Lynch and Mark Frost had truly stayed on set and checked it for quality before every episode it would have definetely made a difference. Also fuck network pressure from ABC didn't help.
> hey zach, do you think they're trying to tell us something?
I love Twin Peaks, but I'm afraid the new season will have the same problem that the new X-files season and Star Wars:TFA had - "Hey, this is that show you remember! Look, references! Google and smartphones, Mulder!"
Still gonna watch it, though.
Excuse me, but is David Lynch the pie and coffee guy? Tbqhwy I have never seen a single episode, I just like this picture.
It is like he has a total single minded focus on the coffee and pie, his thoughts are disciplined like steel, nothing is given at all to the bullshit in the rest of the world and other people's nonsense, no one can interfere with his enjoyment of this good strong cup of fresh black coffee and that slice of homemade cherry pie, whisps of steam emanating from the crevices signifying its recent emergence from the oven.
Only started watching this abput a month a go but it's awesome.
I can't decide if I enjoy it so much because it's actually good or if because I lived extremely close to where it was shot and recognize a shit ton of places
I really really liked it actually. I know it gets a bad rap but I personally enjoyed the soul crushing atmosphere and interesting scenes. There's something about the colours used and the music that gives it this resounding sense of dread. I had to stop watching it half-way through because I started getting very uncomfortable.
I couldn't say it any better, I love how it delves into her psyche and shows just how fucked up and troubled she was before her death. The imagery is incredible and just brings out more of the insane beauty if Twin Peaks and even manages to do so outside of the dream sequences. Sheryll Lee really had an incredible performance as well.
Mullholland Drive is excellent, the pacing of the whole movie especially in certain scenes is masterful. It is also packed full of the usual David Lynch imagery that was interesting.
Blue Velvet is also pretty great and worth a watch, full of suspense and an incredible performance by Dennis Hopper in one of his best roles.
Inland Empire is also pretty good but is a real chore to watch at times as it just doesn't follow a traditional way of storytelling, but it is packed to the brim with insane and some terrifying imagery and just an atmosphere of uneasiness throughout.
Elephant man is pretty great and probably his least crazy movie
Also I just bought Eraserhead and have yet to watch it.
I don't feel like that will be the case, David Lynch is personally directing all 18 episodes and he isnt the kind of guy who would do shit like that. I just hope he is able to capture the atmosphere the show had that made it such a captivating show of surrealism and mystery.
Yeah I have watched it 4 times this month.
That must be really cool to be able to go to places where the scenes were shot. I hope to travel out to Washington and visit to do some sightseeing.
as an Icelander I really appreciate the first season
thx, I will be on the look out for this Dale Cooper when I start watching this, though reading my post again it wasn't quite as flowing as I had hoped, filling text with detail while maintaining a poetic rhythm is difficult, hmm
Yeah Audrey Horne, Shelley Johnson, and Donna Hayward are all super hot.
AhHHH finally the thread for me
Well OP, I am very very excited!
The cliffhanger SPOILER
ending in the black lodge with the main guy turned into an evil spirit was not very satisfying to me at all, although it did make for an extremely spoopy ending to the show. I've literally been to the white lodge in my dreams and an owl told me that it couldn't talk to me when i was trying to protect my ego with humor and deprication of self and others and that my higher self could only be realized when i was not trying to justify or protect myself to myself
I figured there would be some big fans like myself on here glad you found the thread.
What is it about the ending you didn't like? Personally I love it despite it being a giant cliffhanger. It is also expanded upon if only slighlty by the movie and some deleted scenes.
That is a pretty crazy dream man, has it turned out to be true yet?
The thing about the dream is I can't really function in the world without my sarcasm and wit, creating comics have transferred into my real life to the point where i can get along with anyone in my life even though I am full robot inside in almost every way possible, so no, i haven't gotten rid of my persona to reach my full spiritual pottential.
The ending I didn't like so much because I just wanted more! SHOW SPOILER
It slowed down so much after Laura's murder was solved, and it ended on the next interesting plot point, like it was finally going to come out of the valley and onto the peak of interestingness again and bam! it ends~!
I highly recommend it. For the most part Seattle is a fun city to visit and it's easy to make a day trip up to Snoqualmie and North Bend as its only about 40 minutes from downtown. There is also a hike I love to do called Cedar Butte that gives you an almost identical view of "twin peaks" that is used in the intro
I'm the same way, that is all I really have that makes me somewhat unique. If its more fun to experience life that way is reaching spiritual potential worth it at this point in life?
I understand what you mean, it was an incredibly abrupt way to end a show but atleast it was very exciting and packed full of great imagery. I too am upset that the show ended the way it did but now that its coming back we can expect to uncover more of the mystery of Twin Peaks. He HAS to address these plot points now and they were so crazy and interesting to begin with I just cant wait to see more.
Yeah, the season started really strong.
I was actually enjoying it more, but around the time Lynch shows himself as a character it just drops.
The ending of Laura's arc was amazing, based Leland was a great actor.
But come on
Catherine is suddenly a chinese fat man, and Josie's husband is alive and an evil mastermind
Still i'll finish it because i love the characters
Also Duchovny as a trans? Had a good kek
Name a more likable character than Dale Cooper.
Protip: you can't.
I am hoping to be able to attend Twin Peaks fest this year and I definetely plan on doing that whenever I go. Thanks for the recommendation man, i'll make sure to check that hike out.
How can one man be so based
I'm not american and there's no "pie culture" here.
I never had a cherry pie like the one's in TP, how much am i missing out?
Jesus, this fucking show makes me crave pie with coffee.
As in recommend Twin Peaks? Yes watch it, it is truly an incredible and unique show. I have never seen another show like it.
If anyone can recommend me similar shows it would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know more shows like it but the 12th episode of the 5th season of Psych is a tribute episode and it's quite amazing.
Had many good nostalgia laughs about it.
And you don't really need to watch previous episodes to understand it.
I felt the later half of s2 (after the author appears) is suffering from the series having to wrap up early. Wish s3 was in development. Would have been a great mix between the seriousness and overarching plot of s2 and the goofiness of s1
I just watched Mulholland Drive, it's pretty nice indeed but i prefer Inland Empire, it's gotta be one of my favorite movie from David Lynch.
I've watched Eraserhead and it was pretty great too, you should watch Lost Highway, it's really good too desu
My favourite scene in that was the one in the diner talking abput his dream. The suspense was amazing.
Yeah Inland Empire was great but is a very acquired taste for most people.
Yeah I really wanna see Lost Highway.
Yeah that scene in the diner got me on the edge of my seat kinda, i really love scenes like that in David's movies, speacially when it's someone talking about weird dreams and stuff like that
