I wouldn't mind a resolution, though I don't think I'd want a full series.

FeedTheCollapse: I wouldn't mind a resolution, though I don't think I'd want a full series.


Agreed. I really wish they had wrapped up the series instead of ending on a cliffhanger.

As is, there weren't a whole lot of places for the show to go but a resolution would have been nice

TV Guide ranked the show's pilot at No. 60 in its top 100 TV episodes of all time.

Are you f*cking kidding me?

You could make a pretty strong argument that it should be #1 by a long shot. It's influenced pretty much every drama, spooky or otherwise, since. There was never anything on television like it before it aired, and it's never been duplicated by its hundreds of imitators, including a lot of shows that were/are great in their own right.
 
2013-01-04 09:47:04 AM
It's another one of those shows, like Crime Story, which suffered from its own success. It should have been a one-and-done series, but once ABC saw the ratings, they demanded it be extended into a second series, which was a mistake.

To be fair, the first season was only 8 episodes.

ABC farked up by forcing Lynch to resolve the mystery midway through season 2. If the mystery had went on to end the second season (and the series), it may have been the perfect TV show.

Bingo. ABC doubly f*cked up by refusing to air Mullholland Drive as a TV show because the pilot was "too long" at 90 minutes.

Now they air 3-hour episodes of The f*cking Bachelorette.

I don't get that. A Pilot "too long" at 90 minutes?

Did ABC forget that the majority of NBC's successful dramas in the late 60s and early 70s (Dragnet 6X, Columbo, Quincy, and CBS's Kojak) began life as 90 minute made for TV movies that eventually became 60 minute series?

Last year a of my friends organized a marathon viewing of her Twin Peaks DVDs. The group included everything from people like me who actually went to see Fire Walk With Me in the theater to those who had never seen a single episode. It was fun, and there was pie and coffee and brie and butter baguettes all 'round. I couldn't find a smoked cheese pig though.

Find the Psych episode "Dual Spires" to see the majority of the Twin Peaks cast in present day form.

Remember many movies of the 80's were only about 90 minutes. Entertainment people were convinced for a decade the American public couldn't go that long without keeling over.
They were wrong, of course, but that was thinking at the time.

In fairness, I think it was 96 minutes without commercials. I just read this great book of Lynch interviews and he claimed ABC freaked when he delivered the pilot and it was that long. Still, they could've aired it at two hours.

Exactly. That's the way it was done for the series I mentioned... the networks made a big deal out of a WORLD PREMIERE TV EVENT 2 hour movie since the pilots were movies of the week, and then, the shows were off to their timeslots in their usual 60 minute length.

Of course, I can see networks being stupid about length in the 80s, too.

Some definitions of dwarfism state that anyone under 4'10" is a dwarf. At least yours were under 4'.

/by that definition, Danny DeVito is only an inch or so above Dwarfdom.

I just began watching it on Netflix, and it is highly entertaining. Whatever form they bring it back in, either as a complete reboot, or continuation, I'll definitely tune in. But it needs to be on HBO or Showtime.

I love the series, but never got around to watching Fire Walk with Me. I heard it didn't resolve anything and was quite a disappointment. After the way the finale ended, I didn't much feel like increasing my frustration at the show's lack of closure.

Is it worth giving it an watch? Or should I just ignore it completely?

A lot of people hate it. I think it's Lynch's best film and one of my favorite movies of all time.

The almost universal negative reaction to Fire Walk with Me, particularly among Twin Peaks fans, has always been really confusing to me.

If they don't bring it back, how the hell will I ever find out who killed Laura Palmer? What about Arnold Palmer and Robert Palmer? And President David Palmer? And Carson and Jesse Palmer?

It was Julee Cruise, wasn't it?

All my hipster friends who love Lynch insisted I watch Twin Peaks. the wife and I watched it. I enjoyed the first 3/4 of the show but the last quarter devolved into weirdness for weirdness sake. Fire walk with me was just kinda boring

I had the same problem. I loved the show up through the resolution of the Laura Palmer story. I think I made it through an episode or two after that, and that was it.

ABC screwed the pooch making Lynch rush things.

Albert, one of the best TV characters of all time:
Albert: Please Cooper, I do not suffer fools gladly and fools with badges never. I want no interference from this hulking boob, is that clear?
Truman: I've had just about enough of your insults.
Albert: Well I've had enough of morons and half-wits, dolts, dunces, dullards and dumbbells, and you chowderhead yokel, you blithering hayseed, you've had enough of me?
Truman: Yes, I have

Albert: "You listen to me. While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I am a nay-sayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I'll gladly take another, because I choose to live my life in the company of Gandhi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman."

Never understood the love for Twin Peaks. I tried watching the pilot when it came out and couldn't bring myself to watch any more. But a bunch of my friends at the time were into it, and so I had to hear about it constantly. What I gathered from there conversation was that there was a lady that dragged a log around with her everywhere and one of the characters turned into a doorknob or something.

I think the hate for FWWM is that it doesn't offer any real resolutions (at least, not overt ones) but rather
embroiders onto the existing mythos.  Not a bad thing, but I prefer the series because it is somewhat
more coherent (I like Lynch, but in small doses).

I always heard that Mark Frost was the major driving force for the day-to-day operation of the show.
Lynch was very involved in the pilot and writing the character bible & scenario, but that by the time
the show got to the air it was almost all Frost (including the post-Laura murder stuff).

That was a major issue with the show. They admitted they had no idea where the story was going so things became surreal just for the sake of being "odd". It sort of ruined the whole thing for me knowing the writers were just throwing bizarre shiat at the wall to see what would stick. I heard shows like Lost have the same problem.

The X-Files is another show said to have the same problem. After the fifth season or so (and especially after the first movie). people started to figure out that the big Alien conspiracy thing was going nowhere and it was all being made up on the fly.

There really is something to be said for the British way of doing things... short seasons plotted out and filmed before a single episode is aired.

The BSG writers admitted to just making it up as they went along. When it came to the final cylons and the opera house, they had non idea what the answers were going to be until those episodes happened.

Lost sometimes felt like it was being made up as it went along, but a lot of it was planned out ahead of time. Some people just got bent of of shape because some of the answers were crap.

Lost was NOT planned ahead of time.  They claimed it was but that was utter bullshiat.   Mathew Fox was supposed to die in the first episode and the whole thing was only supposed to be three seasons.  One of the reasons I have such an abiding hate for that show is that they presneted it as a puzzle or mystery, which I spent a season and a half trying to figure out before i (correctly) figured out that there WERE no answers and everything they were doing amounted to a pile of red herrings that they'd desperately try to sort out later....and that's exactly how the series worked out.

Hmmm.... Sounds like some other JJ Abrams show I've heard of.....

Oh yeah, ALIAS.  That was a show that I should have absolutely LOVED (and my wife, who is not a fan of
genre media absolutely did), but I was completely put off by how every single episode had some world-
shattering revelation that ultimately betrayed the fact that the only plan they had for it was that every
episode should have a world-shattering revelation, not that there would be an overall plot that went
somewhere.

In fact, I have no idea why the show lasted as long as it did.

But they did wrap up the main plot point, where the Rambaldi device gave you immortality. The big bad guy achieved his goal and became immortal, but in a bad way that was just awesome. Yeah, they never did explain exactly how the Big Red Ball tied in with everything but I was satisfied with the way they ended the show.
