^David has said countless times that the main reason why he hasn't made a film in recent years is because he doesn't really have any ideas.
Cool article on how to continue the series here
After reading it i would love to see a third season for Twin Peaks so bad!
I also found a petition to bring back the series: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/b...ck-twin-peaks/
Twin Peaks is the greatest show of all time. Its something of a holy grail and remains unrivalled.
That said Im not eager to jump on the season 3 bandwagon. On the one hand I wonder where things would have gone from its ending... on the other there's a lot that can go wrong. That petition raises a good point: there are a lot of unanswered Twin Peaks. But if ever there was proof that some questions are best left unanswered, it is Twin Peaks itself, which failed because its ultimate question was answered in concession to executives. David Lynch movies aren't about explaining themselves, its one of their brightest defining qualities. The fact that they can engage the viewer long after they finish.
If I were to jump on the bandwagon, it would only be on the condition that David Lynch were on board for the whole thing. And he won't be. If he wanted to do it, he woupd be doing it. He isn't the type to wait for the TV go ahead, especially in this day and age. Part of me would rather see how the mulholland drive show would have come out...
Im curious to see what will happen.
Twin Peaks and Carnivale are the 2 shows that left me so frustrated because of unanswered questions but like many I wouldn't want the quality of a show to be compromised just because the public need answers. Sometimes, it is better to not have them at all.
I'll give Picnic at Hanging Rock as an example. What makes the novel (and the film) so great is the mystery of what happened to the girls. Originally, Joan Lindsay had written the last chapter, explaining everything but the publisher made the decision to remove that last chapter which was a stroke of genius. When the "missing chapter" was finally published years later, readers were disappointed with the author explanation of the mystery because what made the novel was the "not knowing".
didn't realize there was a dedicated thread for the show!
finally watched "fire walk with me" last week and it really got under my skin.
in fact, just today, i got this:
cool tat man! i want to get an owl as a homage to the series (amongst other things), now i just need money...
Oh, in other "news"...
There's a cabaret night in London called The Double R Club which is essentially a David Lynch-themed event. Free "Agent Cooper" (i.e. coffee style) cocktails and doughnuts on entry, acts from the films/TV shows (e.g. stripping Audrey Horne, lipsyncing, Bob-style body modification) and "guess who" style quizzes with bunny-themed prizes. Oh, and a yearly Miss Twin Peaks contest.
It's pretty good.
i started watching TP on netfling. i've been meaning to get back on it, and i think i will after reading this thread.
speaking of david lynch, can someone...anyone...explain Mulholland Drive to me? I love Eraserhead and Lost Highway, but i am secure in knowing that these are admittedly, not exactly cohesive "stories," per se. I look at lynch movies almost like paintings. But with Mulholland Drive, lynch himself swears up and down that it IS a cohesive story. After 8 or 9 viewings over the years, i have a theory...but like bowie said on earthling..."I dont want knowledge, i want CERTAINTY!"
Mulholland Drive is the wrong place to go for certainty. But most people assume that it's about a dream.
Eraserhead on the otherhand, is actually a cohesive story especially compared to Mulholland Drive and lost highway. It's deceptively simple and straightforward.
Mulhulland Drive does have a cohesive story. Just have to watch it a couple times to get it. And some of the story isnt linear. I'll try to explain it though.
Spoiler: it was a dream. Diane and Camilla had a fling and were actresses. Camilla was more successful and so on. In the dream, everything was almost the complete opposite from reality:
In the dream, the waitress' name was Diane. In reality, it was Betty.
Betty was well received during the audition. Diane wasn't.
In the dream, the director was forced to hire Camilla due to pressure from outside influences.
The director's life was falling apart around him. But, really, it wasn't.
Diane was dead in the dream. Same apartment and everything.
The hitman was a clutz in the dream. He was actually the opposite.
The limo drops Diane off at Mulholland. She goes up and the opposite direction.
It's Diane's guilt before committing suicide. Everything in the dream was everything she wished things would've been. Success etc.
I've got about 7 episodes left to go and then I'm finished watching season 2 for the first time.
I can definitely see how this season was starting to get frustrating for some folks, certain things that you were more interested in ended up taking a backseat for a bit and they went down all these detours with the characters that just wasn't as interesting.
Also it's funny, I was just thinking on how this show is probably responsible for inspiring what ended up being The X-Files a year or so later...
Low and behold David Duchovny shows up in some Twin Peaks episodes lol

david duchovny in drag...oooooh boy, did i like that too much.
Heather Graham was cool too!
I felt cheated by the end. The movie doesn't really answer anything either. Spoiler: Guess he's stuck there... I saw somewhere that they were to go to the black lodge to save him, if there was a third season..
Your crazy! Tue ending is like the best episode of anything ever! The perfect ending! Blasohemy!
So is there going to be a Twin Peaks Season 3 or what?
One thing that's eating me...why does the movie contradict the show with Donna's character and her involvement with Laura? this seems like a pretty huge difference... is it supposed to be an alternate reality/timeline of events or what?
It's a prequel. What contradiction?
SOME SPOILERS AHEAD
On the series ending:
I like the ending, i know the series was intended to continue, but i think the final chapter is awesome and the "inconclusive" nature of the final scene is what makes it for me... in a way it says: Copper was the real victim and Bob always wanted an intelligent honest man ...that's fuckin scary!
I can't think a better way to end a different and unique TV show, than that last scene... not your regular: "happy ending", but an end with a BANG!!!
On the movie:
I don't think it's bad is a prequel because the movie fills most of the gaps on the series.... as a "sole movie", it's a total failure (mostly because you have to know the series beforehand), yet as a "long prequel chapter" it's awesome! and the movie also gives closure to the audience showing us that Cooper will always be "lost" in the Black Lodge but will always protect Laura until the end, that's another good ending that does not contradict the series yet it gives us peace...
Still the series can continue from this point and it would be awesome but only if David Lynch and Mark Frost are involved.

The best part of the movie was Teresa Banks investigation at the beginning.
Lynch is done with it. He's said he's fine with someone coming along and rebooting it, if done right. And I'm lost by a few things though.
What happened to Desmond?
And it seemed like Cooper would be stuck there for at least 25 years. Assuming from what Laura told him in the lodge.
That is correct, also in the movie we find out that Laura had the same dream as Cooper, so she knows him already when they meet in the Black LodgeAnd it seemed like Cooper would be stuck there for at least 25 years. Assuming from what Laura told him in the lodge.
Desmond went to or is on his way to the black lodge via the waiting room since Mike/Little Man obviously gets the ring back from him somehow. Unless he conjures up another one and uses his magics.
Whenever Laura or Cooper have these dreams, are they essentially projecting their subconscious into their shadow selves?
Also when Cooper mentions to Albert about what he knows about the next murder, whether that was info he got or gathered from a "dream" or not is it also possible that he got some offscreen information from the Giant? that and who would have given him the idea to do that security camera thing?
