Re: Twin Peaks - Series 3

Yes, I am itching to see Big Ed myself! He's one of my favorite characters, I like the entire gallery of Bookhouse Boys. I think it will really start to feel like Twin Peaks once Big Ed and Audrey are involved.

Re: Twin Peaks - Series 3

So is the scary dirty homeless demon monster who appeared in the jail cell earlier (episode 2 or 3) (and walking the hallway of the South Dakota morgue in episode 7) the homeless person who appears in Mulholland Drive?

Also, is Patrick Fischler's character the same in both Mulholland Drive and in Twin Peaks?

Holy crap! This episode was just BEYOND!

Beyond EVERYTHING!


The next episode doesn't appear for two weeks.
I think I'm going to watch Begotten and as many films by the Brothers Quay as I can find.

Is Bob Azathoth?

Re: Twin Peaks - Series 3

Mind blown after tonight's episode. Possibly - probably - the most surreal and horrifying TV that I have ever seen. For me, it approached the level of Art. Loved the atomic bomb explosion to Pendercki's "Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima!"

Heavy Spoilers Follow:

......
......
My take-away is that the atomic bomb tests opened the doorway between worlds so that the spirits of the Black Lodge could incarnate on earth a la Jack Parsons. The Giant and the Victorian Woman in the Kenneth Grant-esque Mauve Zone were in the White Lodge, and the golden Dragonball w. Laura Palmer's soul was their response to the hatching of Bob.

And is Lynch telling us that Laura Palmer has always been an Emanation of the Giant (in the Tibetan sense)?

Many of the visuals reminded me of the "soul bubbles" from Hodgson's "The House on the Borderland," so much that I was actually waiting for the House to be shown right when we see the Mansion /White Lodge in the Mauve Zone.

It was surprisingly shocking to see the "killing" of EC, not really ready to see the last of his story, and was gratified by his resurrection. The oily hobo-types are apparently Black Lodge spirits in service to Bob. I am curious about the "Got a light?" guy, (credited as "The Woodsman"), he seems to have a lot more agency than the ghost hobos.

Horrifying moments? The Nine Inch Nails performance set the stage for Evil; and the "roach-frog" was pretty appalling.

There appears to be a minor internet mystery about the Woodman's poem, as online searches found it only listed at the top or bottom of several defunct websites, posted weeks or longer ago.

This is the water, and this is the well.
Drink full, and descend.
The horse is the light of the eye, and dark within.


I was not the first to be reminded of FWWM after viewing tonight's episode. Would leave to see anyone's thoughts about it.

Re: Twin Peaks - Series 3

Nice summary of episode 8 - don'tread if you don't want spoilers

I like the author's assertion that the boy and girl are Leland and Sarah on their first date

Re: Twin Peaks - Series 3

Last night's episode was part Dr. Strangelove, part 2001, and part Matthew M. Bartlett story. The weirdest thing I've seen on TV. One of the weirdest things I've seen period. I could not be happier with this show.

Re: Twin Peaks - Series 3

That opening scene with Doppelcoop and "that ####er Ray" driving down a dark highway was incredibly tense. The protracted length of the thing was very effective. I kept waiting for something horrible to appear in the headlight beams, but it never did. Of course I was shocked when Doppelcoop was gunned down. And then the woodsmen appeared and began rubbing gore all over his fallen body. And that ####er Ray's terrified reaction. And that god awful, hideous sounding score. Man, that was like a hit of Lynch heroin. F'ing. Awesome.

Re: Twin Peaks - Series 3

Episode 8...what can one say...WOW! Mind blowing...I don't know where to begin, but I have hypertension and must monitor my blood pressure...after this episode it was through the roof, my pulse was 82. I caught myself watching the episode standing up and very close to the screen. I even toyed with flashbacks to when I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey on acid. David Lynch should be President...he is a genius. Agent Cole's office has a huge picture of the A-Bomb explosion ...that rift in spacetime has put the edge where the horse treads heavy water and the ash becomes the flesh of our own unique nightmare. Enjoy the ride...meet me in the lodge in two weeks. My doppelganger will ask you for a light.
Then I'll watch this episode again...standing up!

Re: Twin Peaks - Series 3

I think David Lynch sold out with that episode.

Oh, you of little faith! SOLD OUT?...Easy for you to say...David Lynch is like blue cheese, not for everyone...nor for the literal minded...SOLD OUT? Raymond Roussel will haunt you, Kafka will unsettle you, David Lynch...well you fill in the blank...SOLD OUT? To what...Christianity?
