Twin Peaks season 3 episodes 17 & 18 finale review

4 September 2017 12:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joe Matar Sep 5, 2017

As gripping as it is disappointing, Twin Peaks: The Return once again ends with more questions than answers. Spoilers ahead...

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Here's your first look at Murder On The Orient Express Part 17 “The past dictates the future.”

With the season finale distinctly divided into two separate episodes, Part 17 of Twin Peaks: The Return is unquestionably the more climactic of the two. Considering the unhurried pace at which David Lynch and Mark Frost eased into Cooper’s return in Part 16 (and, well, the entire series), the pacing of this episode is practically breakneck.

Beginning with a joke about how Gordon Cole’s penis is still functional (yeesh), we then get a big chunk of exposition about the infamous Judy, who is an evil entity (so, I’ve narrowed that down to either Bob or that ghostly thing that came out of »

'Twin Peaks' Series Finale Recap: Back to Black

3 September 2017 8:45 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It ended with a scream, and a million questions, only one of which really matters: How could it have ended any other way?

The two-part finale of Twin Peaks' long-awaited third season/reboot/revival/"Return" marks the conclusion of the most elaborate bait-and-switch in television history. For 18 episodes, co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost deftly played on a quarter century of audience hopes, fears and great expectations created by the show's two original seasons, a prequel film and a host of fake dossiers and diaries. We wanted to see lost loves reunited, »

Twin Peaks Finale Recap: It's Curtains

3 September 2017 7:03 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Before I start my final Twin Peaks recap, let’s get one thing clear: I love Twin Peaks. And I loved this new season. And I loved the finale. I remember one hot June evening back in 1991 when the show suddenly ended on a dramatic cliffhanger and then was (seemingly) gone forever. And people hated that finale! It was so polarizing! And then we all turned against the movie. And yet…

Twenty-five years later, here we are, once again. The fans are divided. Twin Peaks has split them in two. People are either furious, or rapturous. And I am the latter. »

Performer of the Week: Kyle MacLachlan

2 September 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Kyle MacLachlan

The Show | Twin Peaks

The Episode | “Part 16” (Aug. 27, 2017)

The Performance | When Dale Cooper sprang to attention, so did we.

To best celebrate MacLachlan’s reprisal of the loquacious, square-jawed FBI agent, we should first acknowledge the baseline he set with weeks (upon weeks) as that muted simpleton, Dougie Jones. Because it is the contrast of the performances that made Dale’s “return” all the more vivid.

From the moment the previously comatose electrocution victim reported level of woke as “100 percent,” followed by his abruptly expressed appetite for sandwiches, MacLachlan announced, loud and clear, that the Cooper »

"Twin Peaks," Episode 16 Recap: You've Made My Heart So Full

29 August 2017 6:02 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series."Finally," says the One-Armed Man a.k.a. Phillip Gerard (Al Strobel) about midway through Part 16 of Mark Frost and David Lynch's Twin Peaks revival, right after a certain FBI Special Agent returns to the world of the living. It's been 13 episodes since we've seen full trace of Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), though even then he wasn't entirely himself. (Being trapped for 25 years in the otherworldly Black Lodge has a way of tempering certain personality traits.) Now, however, he's "one hundred percent" (in his estimation, anyway), and there's certainly plenty of giddy pleasure to be had watching the energetic, Boy Scout-like Cooper of old take charge. But that presumes that this is the Dale Cooper of old, and it quickly becomes apparent that that's not the case. »

‘Twin Peaks 3×16′ Review

29 August 2017 3:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

In David Lynch, we trust. That should be what all Twin Peaks fans are thinking right now. What he and Mark Frost have given us in the 16th episode in this return is nothing short of perfect, and is sum of all of the parts that have come before it. Now next week, we have the two episodes that will hopefully cap off one of the best television shows to ever make it to the screen.

After Dougie’s (Kyle MacLachlan) encounter with the electricity outlet an old friend finally makes his return and has one destination in mind; Twin Peaks. Meanwhile Evil Coop and Richard Horne  (Eamon Farren) follow co-ordinates to a rock, with dire consequences for Horne. While all this is happening, Diane (Laura Dern) finally remembers what happened at her last encounter with Cooper.

For all the complaints that this season of Twin Peaks was moving slow, »

‘Twin Peaks’ is Flying Into Its Finale: Why All That Action Could Lead to a Definitive Ending

28 August 2017 3:02 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for “Twin Peaks: The Return” (Season 3) through Episode 16, “Part 16.”]

David Lynch’s persistence is paying off.

It’s not like after hearing some fans and critics complain about lengthy, redundant scenes (like five minutes of floor sweeping) and/or characters arcs (“Dougie”), the writer and director — as well as his partner in crime, Mark Frost — could change course midway through “The Return.” But those questioning whether or not the two creators are in complete control of their story — after being given absolute artistic license to make “Twin Peaks” however they see fit — well, those doubters can rest easy.

“Part 16” illustrated Lynch’s precise vision more clearly than anything prior, and it did so with a whole lot going on. From tulpa mania to Agent Cooper’s (Kyle MacLachlan) recovery, the penultimate week of “Twin Peaks” featured quite a bit of development that quickly pushed the story forward. »

'Twin Peaks' Recap: From Her to Eternity

28 August 2017 6:05 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's officially called Twin Peaks: The Return – and this week, David Lynch and Mark Frost's remarkable revisit of the world they created over 25 years ago finally lived up to the name. Dale Cooper is back. And Audrey is too.

With only one week and two hours remaining, this season/series revival had spent nearly its entire running time chronicling the (mis)adventures of a Coop far from the one we knew and loved all those years ago – and that's not even counting the evil doppelganger who escaped the Black Lodge into our world. »

Twin Peaks Season 3 Episode 16 Review

28 August 2017 2:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the sixteenth episode of Twin Peaks season 3…

Well, they did it. David Lynch and Mark Frost did it. Somehow they lasted sixteen episodes before bringing back Dale Cooper, and his first line isn’t anything to do with coffee or cherry pie, but Mike saying, “You are awake,” and Cooper replying, “100%.”

He’s not kidding. To the shock of family and friends, used to Dougie’s elongated pace, Cooper wastes no time getting a flight to Twin Peaks with the Mitchum brothers. Before he takes off, Cooper addresses a question that’s been bugging me since Dougie was busted. What happens to Janey-e and Sonny Jim after Cooper comes back? Do they stay a family, when it’s not Cooper that Janey-e originally married? So far, the answer is ‘yes.’ While all three acknowledge they’re not exactly sure who they are to each other, the shared »

Twin Peaks season 3 episode 16 review: No Knock, No Doorbell

David Lynch finally gives the fans what they want. 100%. Spoilers ahead in our review of No Knock, No Doorbell...

This review contains spoilers.

3.16 No Knock, No Doorbell

Let’s get this out of the way up front: this was an exhilarating episode of Twin Peaks: The Return that gave me chills all over. How could it not be? David Lynch and Mark Frost finally gave us, after withholding it until the sixteenth hour, what we wanted. That said, I still believe this was a weaker episode than the previous one.

‘Twin Peaks’ Review: Rewarding ’Part 16’ Confirms Theories and Evokes Nostalgia to Prepare for Final Gambit

27 August 2017 8:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Twin Peaks: The Return” Episode 16, “Part 16.”]

As David Lynch and Mark Frost round the curve toward the home stretch, all of the dedication and hours that viewers have put in begin to snowball into payoff after payoff in the penultimate installment for the show. But just as Eddie Vedder — sneakily introduced by his birth name Edward Louis Severs III — sings at the Roadhouse, this life and this series are “running out of sand.” The passage of time is one that we’ve been made acutely aware of in “The Return,” with reminders from characters who now have wrinkles or adult offspring and the fact that many of the actors have already passed.

The biggest payoff of course is that “Dougie” (Kyle MacLachlan) wakes from getting electrocuted and is 100 percent Cooper now, with the clear diction, upstanding nature, and take-charge attitude that’s made him so appealing from the beginning. And although he sips approvingly of a dark, »

‘Twin Peaks’: 7 Powerful Moments When Kyle MacLachlan Barely Moves

21 August 2017 4:35 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Recently, Seth Meyers imagined what his NBC talk show might look like if it was set in The Red Room. Despite the opportunity for easy potshots at the preposterousness of “Twin Peaks,” the two-minute segment played it pretty straight.

The original opening titles were reincorporated along with the 4:3 framing of the original seasons. There were stand-ins for Laura Palmer and The Man From Another Place, while Meyers took over the role of Agent Dale Cooper. For anyone familiar with the series, the video homage was quite fun. For anyone else, it would’ve been quite weird.

But one thing stood out above the rest: Seth Meyers was moving too much.

Now, that’s not a slight against Meyers. His take on Agent Cooper was about as physically restrained as possible, barring any lessons from »

"Twin Peaks," Episode 13 Recap: What Is This, Kindergarten?

10 August 2017 9:13 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.Much of David Lynch's work is about regression, or regressiveness, about people who are most comfortable when indulging (really, hiding behind) their baser instincts. An acid-jazz saxophonist with murder on his mind might take refuge in the body and soul of a teenage delinquent (Lost Highway), or a midwestern girl who has played and lost the Hollywood game might concoct a candy-colored dream-life in which she finally attains Tinseltown stardom (Mulholland Dr.). But these escapes always prove to be traps, and cyclical ones at that. What goes around comes around. What has happened before will happen again. Even Blue Velvet's Dorothy Vallens (Isabella Rossellini), finally liberated from her abusive sexual relationship with Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper), "still can see blue velvet through my tears. »

Twin Peaks Recap: Donna 'Returns'

7 August 2017 6:10 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

You may not realize it, but Lara Flynn Boyle’s Donna — the heart of the original series, the activated burgeoning girl detective, my one true love — returned to Twin Peaks Sunday.

Where exactly was she in the show? Well, it’s complicated. First, her face appeared in an old framed photo (of Laura and Donna, from the original series) sitting on a side table in Sarah Palmer’s living room. Then her voice (it was indeed Boyle’s voice) wafted out over the Road House as James Hurley sang his sweet, crazy, retro 50’s ballad “Just You And I” from Season 2. (Yes, »

What's worse: Crushing a person's skull or crushing their spirit? The back-from-the-dead Twin Peaks has seen its fair share of the former violation, courtesy of the supernaturally strong denizens of the Black Lodge. When those demonic entities are around – whether they're Woodsmen assaulting radio-station employees or Dale Cooper's evil doppelganger shattering a rival criminal's face with a single punch after an arm-wrestling bout – no cranium is safe.

Twin Peaks season 3 episode 13 review: What Story is That, Charlie?

Twin Peaks picks up steam and cues the music in its latest season 3 episode, What Story is That, Charlie?

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Gotham season 3 episodes 21 & 22 review: Destiny Calling & Heavydirtysoul

3.13 What Story Is That, Charlie?

We continue right where we left off, for better and for worse.

For a while there, every episode of Twin Peaks: The Return almost felt like a non-sequitur to the one preceding it. But Part 13 picks up directly after Part 12, even—and it’s funny to say it, but this feels like a rarity—checking back in with characters who are right where we left them one episode ago.

Thankfully, it’s faster moving than that last episode, which felt mostly like a series of long conversations in rooms and featured the reintroduction of Audrey Horne by way of an over ten-minutes scene (!!!) of her arguing with her diminutive »
