    Are you positive you were getting 5.1 on your Apple TV? I sent an email to Showtime regarding the issue and this was their response, no mention of it working on any devices:

    yeah, i keep my receiver in "straight" mode so it decodes whatever is sent to it (i.e. if it's only getting stereo, it spits out stereo; if it gets 5.1, it spits out 5.1) and when we re-watched episodes 1 & 2 and watched 3 & 4, all "on demand" it was definitely in 5.1. the rear left speaker is right near where i sit and i was getting plenty out of it. plus the compression issues i had with the stereo stream were completely gone, so that was a big plus.

    Very strange. I even sent a follow up asking if there was any way to watch with 5.1 apart from on cable TV and this was their response:
    At this time SHOWTIME shows cannot be streamed view Dolby Digital 5.1 on our apps. We hope this information helps as we value you greatly as a customer here at SHOWTIME.
    Guess I'll just have to deal with it for now.

    Getting the kid from Looper to play the son was inspired (if not a little handy, he was just coming off the CBS show with Halle Berry) casting.

    Dear God did you guys hear the accusations Michael J Anderson made against David Lynch?
    I'm not generally into gossip, but this is just too fucking crazy not to bring up.

    Yeah, that's what I was alluding to earlier when I said he wasn't exactly stable.

    That's awful.

    On a more positive note, Lynch received a standing ovation at it's premiere at the Cannes Film Festival tonight.

    So I'm utterly thrilled with the new Twin Peaks and am already desperately hoping for another season.

    You can tell Lynch inserted some "Fuck you guys" in the story:

    - "This is the evolution of the arm"

    -"Hello, i would like to see Sheriff Truman
    - Which one?

    I found that part hilarious. He replaces a character played by a dwarf who volleyed some very serious accusations against him with a fucking tree. If that doesn't piss off Anderson, I don't know what will..

    I like the actor that does the "new Truman", but he's too old!
    I know it's 25 years later; but this guy looks in it's 70's; and Ontkean wasn't that old in the original series.
    My only complaint, so far the series has kicked ass!

    Is it wrong that I'm already hoping MacLachlan gets an Emmy nomination for this? We've seen such an incredible range of emotions, personalities, mannerisms and affectations so early on and it's all been uniquely believable and genuine, all the while relying very little on his dialogue to get his performance across.

    If the rest is as good as the first four episodes, this is going to probably be my favorite thing from everybody involved, and that is saying an enormous amount. It feels like Lynch poured everything he's ever had into this, and it's wonderful.

    I'm also fully expecting that as the season goes on and the story naturally dives back deeper into Twin Peaks, we'll see more and more of that "classic" feel come back -- it's earning it, rather than starting out as a nostalgia-fest. I'm very impressed by it.

    Did anybody else absolutely lose it when they saw Naomi Watts? I fangasmed all over the place.

    Michael Ontkean is living happily off the grid in Hawaii, last anyone heard. Pretty sure he retired awhile back and just wants to be left alone..

    It makes perfect sense that Naomi Watts and Balthazar Getty would be involved in this. According to Lynch, Lost Highway takes place in the same universe as Twin Peaks, while the foundation of Mulholland Drive was based as a spin-off of the Audrey Horne character. Not to mention the stylistic flourishes of Mulholland Drive and Lost Highway are all over this season so far..

    Except Ontkean was publicly looking for his old Truman jacket; this made me think he was planning on doing the show at first.
    Who knows?

    Regarding the bit about Watts and Getty, I agree. This doesn't feel like JUST a Twin Peaks "revival" to me. Rather, it feels like a continuation of most of Lynch's work, and it's insanely generous. It's a once in a lifetime treat for a David Lynch aficionado. I don't even have the right words to express how much I'm loving it.

    he's playing harry's older brother, frank, not actually replacing harry.



    finally spun this yesterday after owning it for months (wanted to wait until we had re-watched the film). as much as i like the music from the show, this blows it away (at least the season 1 soundtrack that got released). it really stands on its own as a strong soundtrack.

    Just played that one myself a few days ago. There are two new soundtracks for the new series coming out in September as well, I think?

    Wonder if episodes 3 & 4 will be edited together tonight like episodes 1 & 2 or if they'll be separate.

    i've only seen one 2xLP, and i'm guessing it's going to be all the songs from the ends of the episodes. not sure if there's enough new score to justify pressing a record, but maybe there will be more as time goes on (i hope so!)

    but this article makes it confusing... http://www.factmag.com/2017/05/22/tw...s-coming-soon/

    Twin Peaks (Music From the Limited Event Series) and Twin Peaks (Limited Event Series Original Soundtrack) are out on September 8 on CD and 2XLP from Rhino.
    so like...is one record going to be the songs from the roadhouse, and the other will be score? or is there a second release that hasn't gone up for pre-order yet?

    According to the current Amazon listing, the main TP theme and 'Shadow' are going to be on the same album. Of course, that could change.

    And I'm just going to outright say it: I already like the new opening theme montage with the waterfall/curtains/floor better than the old opening..
