Just started watching "The Return" again, binged episodes 1-4 the other night and I REALLY loved it.  The awkward bits felt even more awkward, the funny bits made me LOL IRL and the freaky bits still made me feel uneasy.  The call back to the first 2 series also hit home in a harder way.  Great tv.  Cannot wait to carry on watching it.

Yeah, a PS3 is dirt cheap on Ebay.

 

Also... the 2 guys responsible for the excellent podcast "Twin peaks Unwrapped" have just released a book, and it looks quite interesting.  I will order a copy if any get shipped over here to the UK, carriage makes it quite pricey.

Yes, PS3's are region free players, they play everything.

DVDs are a bit trickier and can be regional only - but blu rays should be absolutely fine.  You can buy a 2nd hand Ps3 with a whole load of games for about £60

Yep, use mine almost daily too.  Don't play games very often, but it has the Youtube app and my mate lets me use his Sky login as well ?   Sometimes I play CDs through it too, as it runs some nice screensavers.

Also plenty of games can be downloaded from the Playstation store - Ive got Mega Bomberman

lol I just noticed this in another thread and had a momentary identity crisis when I didn't remember posting something you wrote... are you my doppleganger?!!! (jk)

Agreed, should be a mass avatar switch for TP day. . . love that vid of Kale recreating his entrance. . . 

BTW, good work grabbing that set. The S3 Blu Rays were a noticeable bump from the original stream. IIRC the OG series was essentially remastered w/ Lynch's input for the penultimate set, so you're getting, basically, the best possible look at these (plus all that extra material, and 4k of Ep 8 + pilot(s) which is amazeballs). Def think once you get you Bluray setup sussed out it'll pay dividends for years to come! ?

Yep, just got it as well. Missed the Amazon "deal of the day" (€99,-) by a few days and had to pay 20 Euros more, but it's worth it. I think this is now the fourth time I've shelled out for S01 and 02 (first time was on VHS, lol), and I know I'll do it again when the complete 4K remasters are coming, and so on until someone has to wring the 864K version out of my cold dead hands. Looking forward to rewatch S03 (preceded by that ginormous YouTube thing), there must be tons of stuff I missed in the first round. TP is the Exai of TV shows, definitely rewards multiple revisits.

I'm not sold on this Z-A boxed set.  I had the original S1/S2 gold box (sold it) and Ive got the blu rays of S1/S2/Return, so there is no need realllllllllly

 

Re: The 4.5 hour mega-explanation on youtube, im about halfway through, and everything he says so far makes sense (in his annoying accentual way)

Not sure if I could sit and watch it all in one hit though.

Last week we mentioned a new David Lynch film. Turns out the project might actually be a limited series for a very popular streaming service instead. Also, they may have aged up the lead to an actress in their 30s now but nudity is apparently still required for the role.

I don't know, but I guess sometimes a part you played can be so iconic that you get kind of trapped in it. I mean, Ray Wise has been in couple movies and shows after TP, but every time I see him, I just think ... well, Leland Palmer. I guess that might be a problem for some of them.

can anyone fill a more casual lynch fan in on why most actors in TP didn't really hit the big time? one thought i had is the 90s isn't the most accommodating decade for the style of acting you see in twin peaks.

Some did, some didn't.

Lynch's casts seem like a troupe he could draw on depending on the role & the work's moods (Jack Nance, Grace Zabriskie, LFB, Harry DS, Kyle M). Jack Nance plays the same sort of oddball in both Blue Velvet & Wild at Heart, but in TP he goes eccentrically conservative. Then think of EH & the persona he portrays there. Think Lynch had a superb eye for a very specific type of American weirdo & the actors who could personify/capture the essence of that.

The Sopranos cast didn't seem to thrive as well barring Mr & Mrs S, or those from The Police Academy series, in fact everyone from the latter should be found & killed asap.
