    There are no nods even for The Leftovers, which most people thought was an obvious choice.

    everytime i see it in writing (twin peaks) i think of how horrible it was, and wonder if david lynch, in his own twisted way, was just ****ing with everybody when he made that mess.

    although i believe that kyle maclachhlan (sp?) deserves his golden globe nom, simly for subjecting himself to what have been torture to film all that.

    I have seen all the behind the scenes footage. By every indication, Kyle enjoyed reuniting with Lynch to film this, and Lynch is completely serious about his vision. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean it's the creator ****ing with you.

    Also, Kyle read the entire script before filming began. He could have easily turned it down or voiced his opinion that he didn't like what he saw.

    Is that correct? Kyle seemed as thrown off by the episode 18 conclusion as everyone else.

    I was surprised when you wrote that he had read the entire script because I couldn't reconcile that with reports that he was baffled by the way episode 18 ended. He remembers shooting it but not recognizing where in the episode the scene would be placed. Surely one would think he'd know all that if he had read the script.

    My problem with season 3 was, imo, that they hit very high highs in creativity, but I couldn't follow the story each week. I won't be buying this for season 3.

    It’s the difference between knowing what happens, and actually understanding what just happened. Kyle knew the former but seemed to be baffled by the latter.

    Not sure about that, either. At some point during the run, he said that the series would make sense at the end, only to confess to being baffled just like everyone else when we actually got there.

    Well, yes, a lot did fit together by the end. (And the final dossier helps recap it all and puts much of it in proper order etc.) But the final scene/cliffhanger leaves something open — a Twin Peaksian take on the traditional cliffhanger (and where there might not be a continuation that will resolve it).

    Lynch has a habit of going off script - or with the last episode of season 2 pretty much tossing the script in the garbage can. Just because Kyle and the network saw the script ahead of time doesn't mean the final product closely resembled the original script.

    That was one occasion, and that's because the original script was horrible. Other than that, Lynch follows his scripts, and only changes or adds something if he gets an idea on the spot. In a podcast, David Nevins said that besides a few small things, everything on the screen matched the script they read.

    My brain had just recently recovered from watching episode eight when it first aired and now I just went and had it messed up again.

    And I see that Hollywood Reporter just included Twin Peaks on their list of "10 Worst TV Series of 2017":

    "...this self-indulgent, pointless, meaningless (albeit visually trip-tastic) exercise in misplaced nostalgia and auteur idol-worship... I haven't read a good defense of the series that didn't seem delusional, dismissive of those who pointed out its flaws or wasn't both irrational and unpersuasive of its merits.
