Should we move Fire Walk With Me page in here? It is essential to understand The Return.

You want to merge Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me under Twin Peak? What would be the benefit exactly?

"Essential to understand" doesn't necessarily mean "the same work." I don't see any point in merging it.

  • Society Marches On: The original series was fairly heavy-handed about the evils of drugs, sex work, and gambling, all of which were portrayed as traps to which characters (particularly Laura Palmer but also many of her peers) became corrupted victims. In short, the original series rode along with an After School Special like message aligned with the Moral Guardian attitudes of its era. The Return portrays many of these themes much more neutrally and casually (sometimes even positively) as part of the setting.

I'm not seeing a big difference in the way that the two runs of the show handled vice.

Anybody else noticed how surprisingly un-Troperiffic The Return is? I haven't spotted more than three tropes per episode which is pretty unusual for the length of 50 minutes.

Not sure if in THE RETURN section I should have the characters have Bittersweet Endings, Earn Your Happy Endings, and Downer Endings for the fate of the characters of the original run (which the Return provides) or just a single long "Where Are They Now"

I feel the new season should get its own folder instead of being merged with everything going on 20 years before. It could look something like this:

    open/close all folders 

    The series in general 
    Season 1 and 2 (1990-1991) 
    Season 3 (2017) 

What do you think?

Whoops. Missed the discussion. Didn't think it would be a big deal.

I'm not too sure about using (one of) the posters from the revival for the page image. Ideally, the image should represent the series as a whole, and I think that the old one did that much better. The poster sort of limits it to the revival.

I took this out. As I recall, The Movie does explain a lot, so it's kind of the opposite.

Does anything actually supernatural happen in this show? I tried watching an episode once, and it felt like watching Manos The Hands Of Fate.

"arbitrary law" is the episode where supernatural stuff goes down

Cooper's visions? The nature of BOB and the One-Armed Man? Josie's fate? The Black Lodge itself? These are all supernatural.

Twin Peaks isn't a supernatural show, it's a evening soap opera/mystery that just happens to incorporate supernatural elements into it. It's really about the fact Twin Peaks looks like a picturesque small town (the 50,000 was supposed to be 5000) but it's full of horrible personal evil deeds and secrets by virtually everyone.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
