I'd say it's sort of deliberately over-acted and overly dramatic to an extent in a way that many Lynch movies often tend to be. It's probably quite dated to an extent in that if it came out for the first time now it wouldn't work...even though it was quite groundbreaking for its time.I've just stated watching Twin Peaks. I know it's very popular, but the acting and background music really puts me off. It's as if the whole thing is made by amateurs. Not sure if it's because of the early 90s. I'm only on the pilot episode. Will it get better? How was it for any of you who started watching it in recent years?
Was it James? Because if so James is just universally shit. It's sort of an in-joke in the series. Once you embrace that he's tolerable somewhat. The other teenage actors/actresses are generally fine.@Cheesy, I'm on the third episode, and it's much better now. This is the first time I'm watching anything by David Lynch.
There's a scene in the pilot, where a teenage boy character drinks beer from a can, standing on the hood of his car, acting like he's standing on a a thin ledge, trying to not to fall down. That made me want to shift delete the whole thing off my pc. But glad that I did not. Was it over acting on purpose, or those child actors were just plain bad?
Ah, fair enough. Bobby's alright but can be very cheesy 80s in the way he acts sometimes, especially in some of the earlier episodes.No. Bobby at Donna's house. Mike is there to meet Donna, and Bobby is with him in the car. He leaps on the the hood to drink, when Mike is talking with Donna's father.
Still think that first season when he appears is probably the most terrifying. He's always a bit freaky but you get used to him...however that first cut to when he's behind the couch caught me off-guard.The vibe they managed to create around Bob in the first two seasons is chilling to the bone.
Yeah that came out of nowhere. I also still get chills when I think about the scene at Donna's house, I think it is, where he climbs over the couch towards Maddie. That grin of his.Still think that first season when he appears is probably the most terrifying. He's always a bit freaky but you get used to him...however that first cut to when he's behind the couch caught me off-guard.
Middle part of the second season gets really silly, yeah. The James Season 2 storyline is probably as bad as it gets insofar as it's completely irrelevant as well as dull and contrived.Some of the side stories have like 0 sense. James with the rich woman and her husband thing for instance.
Yeah I usually like these kind of endings but this one was quite a let down.What the hell happened in the end? what in the hell is wrong with Lynch?
Twin Peaks is just the best,though s2 is very up and down. Still it finishes on a high.
Still haven't watched the new season.
Interesting guide there.
People who watch it for the first time can safely skip the red episodes and half of the yellow ones too in my opinion.
I'm also a huge fan and bought the new episodes on Blu Ray recently but haven't watched them yet. I'm kinda scared of them tbh.
