Interesting guide there.

Everyone I've talked too highly recommends the new series. The general consensus is that its totally unexpected in where it goes and for the better too.
Its just finding the right time to watch it for me. I'm not very good with TV programs/series in general. I still prefer film.
Lockdown and WfH really opened up new dimensions for me when it comes to watching TV shows.

Did you watch the FWWM follow up "The Missing Pieces"? I haven't yet. Supposed to be quite decent.

No, I've yet to watch Missing Pieces but I have been meaning to re-watch Fire Walk With Me. May check it out again this weekend. A rather undervalued film of sorts.

I'm certain I've posted this before, maybe even in this thread, but it's probably the most extraordinary thing ever shown in a TV show. Bizarre, brilliant, and terrifying.

Yeah, I was pretty much stunned into silence by that whole episode and couldn't think about much else for a few days. It might well be the best thing I've ever seen on TV.

I was pleasantly surprised they let David Lynch basically do what he wants - the new season is pure Lynch madness. It's great.

I think so cant quite remember. Dont want to spoil much for those watching but a certain guy is screaming or laughing if I recall.
Ah that's not the one I'm thinking of. That said, Bob has to be one of the creepiest characters ever. Thinking about some of his scenes still makes my skin crawl years after I watched the show.

Also, can anyone else hear this picture:

Anyone else subscribed to Dave's Youtube channel where he does both a daily weather report and a daily lottery?

I tried watching it 2 or 3 years ago for the first time, during the summer, but for some reason I didn't even finish the first episode. I gave it another chance just when all the corona madness was starting to get serious in my country and it actually managed to become my favorite show ever. yeah. not from the start, but with each episode I watched. I don't think there are bad episodes, for me they all have their place and purpose. if anything, TP wouldn't be half the show it is if it wasn't for those strange, meaningless scenes and details you don't see in other shows. both acting and soundtrack are perfect. I don't even love Lynch's work that much so I could call myself a fanboy, but TP I consider to be easily his best work. it will never be matched, neither by Lynch himself or anyone else.

you could only imagine the smile on my face when I realized there's another season. it's been trully a strange year so far and that probably helped me to get into the equally strange show. everything just clicked for me. I don't even remember when was the last time something hit me so hard I kept thinking about it for the next 2 or 3 weeks. well, that's what the ending of third season did to me. I was a bit angry at first because of the way it all ended, but I realized soon enough that there's really no need for that. it's simply a kind of show that can't end in a way that it will be understandable for everyone, neither it can end in a way that will make everyone happy. that's not TP and it's not Lynch. when everything is clear and solved, there's nothing to think about a month later. that's the beauty of it.

I couldn't get into the third season. I watched six episodes or so and just stopped. It was all too incoherent and felt like a chore to get through.

Yes, wonderful. Eaily one of my favourite openings to a show. Easily one of my favourite shows in general. I may start it again.
Been off work ill and have just smashed my way through all 3 seasons. Season 3 gets better with each repeated viewing.

I really hope the whispers of a season 4 / follow up film are true. Much as I love Lynch and his work I would love there to be a resolution to this, I genuinely think it needs one to frame it as an all time masterpiece.

Stick with it. It doesn’t necessarily become more coherent but you at least fragment yourself enough to become in sync with it.

This perfectly sums up every experience I've had with a David Lych film/tv show.
No other director makes me feel the things DL does. There’s a part of my brain that drinks his stuff up.

Regarding Twin Peaks, I was quite a latecomer to the party. I’d seen Eraser Head when I was young and it scared me off a bit.

I actually got to twin peaks through the soundtrack. I heard Moby’s Go, traced it back to Twin Peaks Soundtrack. Loved the inlay of the CD and bought the box set on VHS and smashed it all in a matter of days. There’s nothing else like it. Hammy. Menacing. Demented and uncompromising and season 3 was such a perfect continuation. Mesmerising stuff.

Plenty of other TV shows of massive quality but nothing that comes close to that surreal, dreamlike take on the evil lurking below the surface of a small town. Agent Cooper is one of my favourite characters ever and I spent ages wanting to be just like him.
