OK, so I'm late to the party....

After living in the area this show was largely filmed in back '90 (the year I moved here actually!) I had heard of it but never saw it. Until today!

Thanks to our superb library I now have all 29 episodes on an extended loan. And watched the first 2-hr pilot this afternoon.

Full disclosure - I live in the area this was filmed in, right down to the Mar-T R&R Cafe (actually named Twede's), Great Northern Hotel (known locally as the Salish Lodge) which is now owned by the Muckleshoot tribe. The Snoqualmie tribe owns the land and Casino nearby. (And they could have had this property as well, but that's a discussion for another day.)

And there were many other shots that I identified with. Including and especially the dilapidated bridge. It's all local stuff to me.

Right, so the 2-hr pilot hooked me. And I'll be looking forward to the rest of the series. So far!

And yes, there was a new series that was filmed here recently. I'll see that in due course.

Any Twin Peaks fans here?


Cheers,

RR

I remember when this was first airing we used to RUSH home so we wouldn’t miss anything. We were totally hooked. It was so dang WEIRD.


Has anyone out there ever watched, “The Lost Skeleton of Cadavera”?

Forgot to add that a great many shots include Mt. Si, which is the predominant landscape feature here in Snoqualmie and North Bend. Mt. Si is visible on any semi clear day and sort of broods over the area. I also recognized the roads that were shown as cars travelled down with Mt. Si in the background. All local stuff.

And the waterfall - Snoqualmie Falls - right at the Salish Lodge (Great Northern Hotel in the series) is about a mile from my brewery. Supposedly the #2 tourist attraction after Mt. Rainier in W. Washington.

I'm working my way through the original series of 29 episodes, and will also get in the new series in due course. In fact I remember when they filmed the new series not too long ago, as they changed the sign on Twedes cafe back to the Mar-T for filming. I drive right by there to the brewery and back every day.

Now I'm starting to understand the cult following of this show, and why there are always so many tourists taking pics outside Twedes with Mt. Si in the background. Yet I've never had their cherry pie, which of course they are noted for.


Cheers,

RR

Now firmly entrenched into the series. Starting to binge watch it. Too much to discuss right now but it's hooked me big time!

One thing I'd sure like is to to have close captioning as some of the dialogue is difficult or impossible to understand. While I sort of get the general idea, it raises more questions than it answers.

In any case it's a way great series, and I can see getting this DVD set in after I return it to the library.


Cheers,

RR

That's impressive if you can watch it all during one library checkout.

After you're done, be sure to watch Fire Walk With Me. Then jump into Season Three!

I enjoyed the series immensely--you'll have to post when you've finished it.

Knocked off another 5 episodes today, and 3 yesterday.

All I can say is that this series has me hooked like a fish!

The scene where the ex-girlfriend and new boyfriend make it on the kitchen table in front of the paralyzed ex boyfriend sitting there in the wheelchair, unable to move a muscle...is very likely a classic of nasty excellence that even the great David Lynch may never surpass.

Just finished the original series, and I have more questions than answers! Too much to go into right now. I have the special features to watch before I return this to the library, but those are just peripheral to the story line. And I don't expect an conclusion from them, but will view them anyway so as to have a full accounting.

The 3rd season is now being burned for me on DVD, courtesy of a bud with the connection to do this as I don't have the necessary hookups. I'll be viewing that soon.


Cheers,

RR

I'm a big Twin Peaks fan also.  I have the Gold Box Edition and have watched just the beginning only because my dvr broke!  I put the set away and forgot about it unit now!  Shoot, now I'll have to find another dvr to use.  I'm sure my son will let me borrow one, he has a lot of video stuff.  Or, I could just go out and buy one if they still make them!!!  Now I'm excited to watch this again. bounce

Now 2 episodes into season 3, and have to say it's hooked me once again!

Interesting to see how the ~25 years between the original 2 seasons have aged the main characters. And Lynch has his signature stamp on this all over again!

Looking forward to the rest of the season. Creepy!

I was pretty young when Twin Peaks first aired and was hooked even at an age when I couldn't fully appreciate the series. Season three was just as good, although in a new and fresh way. Also, I absolutely loved Dougie.

Did you watch Fire Walk With Me? It clears up everything in Seasons 1 & 2, and frankly, I don't think I would have understood Season 3 without it. I think it forms the entire foundation for Season 3, actually.

Yes! FWWM is very important, also the two supplemental books that Mark Frost wrote.

Oops, just saw the ?.

I’ve only read the first bit of the first book. Kinda slow going but I’ve been told it helps explain a lot in the 3rd season. I haven’t snagged the the 2nd one yet, apparently it ties up some loose ends from the series.

I read the reviews about these books on amazon and they seem to be mostly positive, except for perhaps readers who got in the kindle versions. I'm not a kindle guy so would be getting in the hard copies if I decide to do it. And I don't hold the reviews as gospel anyway.

If they can help explain the details that seem to be obtuse to me it would be helpful.

If you could offer your opinion on the book you're reading that would be appreciated.


Cheers,

RR

I hadn't gotten far at all when I put it down last summer. Need to pull it out and finish and grab the second soon.

It starts with the Lewis & Clark expedition and what they find when they visit what becomes the Twin Peaks area.

It's basically a dossier written by one of the agents compiling what the FBI has uncovered about all the mysterious events thus far.

Finished up season 3 the other night.

What a weird and great series. But it clearly didn't resolve anything, at least IMHO. More questions than answers. Held my attention though. Riveting. Great acting.

Much hi-tech evident in the presentation. Way more so than seasons 1 and 2. Lynch and Frost clearly had their hands on this from start to finish. Unlike how season 2 waffled. MHO as always.

Need to re-watch this whole series from the beginning. And also get in the books. They may help explain things but I feel it will be another chapter in WTF?

Personally I don't think there is any logical explanation to the series. Rather it's just a combination of dramatic events which produces a complicated and convoluted story line with no outcome. Except possibly for that of the viewer.

e.g. make up your own conclusions and theories. And perhaps that's what Lynch and Frost really wanted to do in the first place. Keep folks talking and guessing to hold their interest.

That being the case, they sure hooked me!




Cheers,

RR

Just finished re-watching the 1st and 2nd seasons. And have started re-watching season 3.

Catching much that I missed previously, but it sure would be good to have on-screen closed captioning as some of the dialogue is impenetrable. And it doesn't seem that I can program my equipment to decode this. Still, very enjoyable.

As I just moved from the immediate area some of this was filmed in, it helps me re-connect with it. I'm well familiar with the Mar-T Diner (actually called Twede's) as I drove by it daily on my way to and from the brewery.

And the Great Northern Lodge is known locally as the Salish Lodge (Salish is a Native American tribe indigenous to this area). The location of which was about a mile from our brewery.

The backdrop of the 'Twin Peaks" range is none other than Mt. Si, which dominates the landscape and which I passed under daily. The mountain was named after local homesteader Josiah "Uncle Si" Merritt. It's a dormant volcano caldera, and I've climbed it's ~4K' peak on a few occasions. One can view downtown Seattle and the Olympic Mt peaks to the west and Mt. Rainier to the south on a clear day.

I miss that area for the above mentioned features, but sadly after retiring I could not continue living there for various reasons.



Cheers,

RR

I've read that listening with headphones allows you to catch a lot of the subtle audio cues Lynch added to the score.

Jesse took me and another friend up to the top of Mt. Si and to the other TP related sights. Loved it and it is quite a beautiful, its truly a special place.
