This season has been a glorious train wreck.  It's goddamn awful, but I just can't help but look at it.

I really don't get the hate for this season. I love it.

It's brilliant. It's also David Lynch, so most people are going to hate it. Most people prefer to watch Seinfeld reruns instead of being gloriously confused.

Also the new Twin Peaks stands at a 94% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so it's hardly a critical failure. Just dumb people who demand things like "plot" and "cohesive narrative." Which if you are a Lynch fan, you wouldn't expect anyway.

Right, because the guy behind Eraserhead and Inland Empire is known for such things. If you don't like David Lynch, you should have figured that out by now. He's only been doing what he does for several decades of film now. And the new Twin Peaks is pure Lynch, with no more ABC nitwits telling him how to run a TV show. Of course people are going to hate it. But like you, they'll pretend it sucks while still being sucked right into it.

Did you even seen the first two seasons of Twin Peaks?  I don't think it's too much to ask that the third season be somewhat similar in tone and style rather than the insane shiat we've got so far.

I watched every episode when they were released. I know Twin Peaks and most of Lynch's work quite well. Lynch has famously said over and over he lost interest in the series when ABC executives demanded he solve the murder of Laura Palmer (he never intended to) and forced him to work under a network TV narrative. That show was David Lynch being forced to work as director-for-hire. New Twin Peaks, that is REAL David Lynch. If you want ABC TV, there's still plenty of it out there. Maybe he's just not your style, like your gum.

Considering Twin Peaks was the only successful thing he's done, perhaps those executives knew what they were talking about.  The premier of season 3 only drew 500,000 viewers and those numbers have been dropping every week (now under 300,000).   His only appeal these days is for people who want to be different and like what everyone else doesn't.

Yet you admit you'll keep watching. Hehe. And since when is "these days" any different than when he was making Rabbits or even Eraserhead? When, exactly, was the part of Lynch's career that you loved? Oh right, Twin Peaks, (on ABC).

You do know that Mulholland Drive was meant to be a TV series, but it was rejected by the networks, right?

I love Twin Peaks. I really do. But other than episode 8, I think this season has been just awful. They say they had a full script before they started shooting, but I swear this episode felt more like they were making it up as they went along than any other so far (which has been pretty much every episode other than 8.)

Are you guys really enjoying this? To me it seems to be going nowhere at the speed of light.

And yet another week with STILL no Sherilyn Fenn. WTF?

I do. It was actually designed as a spin-off of Twin Peaks starring Audrey going to Hollywood. But it's a brilliant movie in its own right, much like the 2-hour version of Twin Peaks that was released in Europe back in the day, that had a coda revealing Killer Bob. But your point remains invalid.

I completely disagree. I've rewatched the original series recently and the new season is FAR more rewatchable than the old. I guess it's a matter of taste.

I know there were a few dud B storylines in the original (Nadine in high school, pretty much everything with James), but I thought the A storyline was rarely ever dull in the first two seasons. I can't imagine wanting to rewatch season 3, again, with the exception of episode 8, which was awesome.

Are you really finding Dougie Jones amusing? Dougie has remained exactly the same since Cooper switched places with him: a single-note character shuffling around like a zombie and parroting the last few words said to him. Don't you miss the character of Agent Cooper at all?

Ninety-year old Harry Dean Stanton sings the hell out of "Red River Valley!

Which side is Diane on?

Dougie sex.

The full name of Dougie and Janey-e's child is Sonny Jim Jones. Hmm.

This week the assholes had the upper hand. A real downer of an episode (intentionally so). The farks have taken all our wool, and I feel we'll need a bigger golden shovel to dig ourselves out of the shiat.

Look at all you Farkers, turning up your nose when counterculture actually dares to be counterculture, the culture being countered being hyperfast TV shows that can't hold a scene for more than three quarters of a second.

As for what we've been seeing this last episode or two, I've got a notion that the somnolence of Dougie might be contagious, spreading to the people he's been in contact with.

I am still loving this series for the way it refuses to explain anything or, well, make any damn sense. I would have disappointed if Lynch & Co. had decided to make it more accessible and conventional. I love that they are leaning hard in the other direction. A show can throw plotting and storytelling conventions to the wind if there's a functioning brain and compelling vision at its core. This isn't aimlessness disguised as edginess, and it's not  lazy writing.

Okay. These guys are called the Woodsmen. They arrived when the Atom Bomb was detonated on July 16th, 1945. The explosion ripped open a portal / bridge / doorway to something that might be related to the black lodge, or worse. "Mother", the creature that ate the heads of the two kids watching the cube in Ep. 3, was released in the explosion, and vomited up what looks like thousands of eggs, as well as BOB. 

At the same time, the Woodsmen arrived. We see them at the 'convenience store' milling around, simultaneously here and not here, in many ways behaving like neutrons. These guys are even creepier than the lodge denizens, as 1) they have the look of someone who's died by electrocution, 2) similar to the lodge, they survive on pain and suffering. They differ from the Black Lodge residents in that they siphon off pain and suffering directly; they don't need it turned into an edible medium - garmonbozia. 

So, what you're seeing there is Matthew Lillard as Bill in the previous cell, who has just been booked for murder, lost his wife, and found out she's screwing his friend and lawyer at the same time. Bill had previously crossed over into what he called 'the Zone' in 1997 - which is where he attracted the attention of BadCoop, and the Woodsmen. 

The Woodsman in the cell next to Bill looks the way he does, because he's mainlining Bill's extreme pain. "Drink and descend" the Woodman said on the radio in Episode 8. It's almost as if they're dependent on tanking up on Mankind's pain in order to move on, leave, go elsewhere. Bill gives him enough that this guy was able to move on. 

Looks like a junkie, is a junkie, feeding on actual horror.
