Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 15

There will be SPOILERS throughout this post. David Lynch's love of Billy Wilder's 1950 classic Sunset Boulevard is well established. He's cited it in interviews as one of his favourite movies, and time and again its influence rears its head in his work. The road itself makes a cameo in Mulholland Drive. In INLAND EMPIRE he recreates a … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 15

Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 14

There will be SPOILERS throughout this post. 253. It's a number that has a strange significance in this week's firecracker installment of Twin Peaks, pointedly appearing twice. We finally seem to have reached 'the day' as Sheriff Frank Truman (Robert Forster), Deputy Chief Hawk (Michael Horse), Deputy Bobby Briggs (Dana Ashbrook) and Deputy Andy Brennan (Harry … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 14

Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 12

There will be SPOILERS throughout this post. Here's a hot take for you; Twin Peaks is better now than it's ever been. How about that? Season Three, or The Return (or whatever you want to call it) has been different, absolutely, and that otherness has perhaps alienated those who wanted the show to continue existing in a bubble, … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 12

Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 11

There will be SPOILERS throughout this post. Despite my assumptions last week that Part 10 was tangential filler before our arrival at 'the day' for Hawk (Michael Horse) and Sheriff Frank Truman (Robert Forster) to follow the trail left by Major Briggs, Part 11 found us still two days away from that important event. No matter, for … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 11

Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 10

There will be SPOILERS throughout this piece. While half the world was having their bums numbed by one of the most dramatically bereft episodes of Game Of Thrones so far, Twin Peaks fans were treated to something moderately more stimulating as Lynch and Frost keep the engine running this week with a lot of bitty moments forwarding some … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 10

Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 9

There will be SPOILERS throughout this post. So, we've had a fortnight to let Part 8  sit, we've ruminated, and we've both feared and marveled at where Mark Frost and David Lynch are going to take us next. Part 8 rewrote the rules of TV and did it by simply pretending it wasn't TV. Lynch refers to this season … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 9

Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 7

This post will contain SPOILERS throughout. I'm sitting here as the UK enjoys a sweltering spell, biting great chunks from a baguette filled with (what else) brie and butter, desk fan blowing hot air at me, thinking about how Dougie Jones (Kyle MacLachlan) seems to divide the audience of new Twin Peaks. There are those who … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 7

Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 6

There will be SPOILERS throughout this post. I've been thinking a lot about my gripes last week with Part 5, an installment that I liked in the main, but which caused me frustration because I felt that the narrative was dawdling. When I talk to friends and colleagues about Twin Peaks ,  or really any David Lynch material, I … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 6

Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 3

Aaaand we're back in the room. As previously, these posts will detail plot points for episodes in the third season of Twin Peaks and so WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS THROUGHOUT. Following the bracing one-two punch of the opening double bill, one imagines a number of fair-weather fans will have been weeded out by Lynch's no-holds-barred approach to his … Continue reading Twin Peaks Season 3: Part 3
