People are too quick to blame Frost for the show's lesser moments, but these excerpts :?

I'm glad Frost justified my quick blame

Just finished a pdf there. It's not worth buying but I'm glad I read it. It's short, and does make a real effort to tie loose ends together but it's also totally lacking in internal logic or coherency, and tammy's voice is baffling.

I thought Annie's annual "I'm fine"Toggle Spoiler was one of the few nice touches.

Yeah, I can’t figure out what he was going for wrt Tammy. Or why she would have bothered piecing together all that...mostly gossipy minutiae of the TP townsfolk’s lives, most of which only very tangentially related to Coop or a blue rose case.

Agreed about ha Annie detail, but tbh, I wouldve rather not known what happened to her, or Audrey, than just get a page-long, mostly dispassionate recap.

frost you fooled me once, zero interest
Flutehampton will turn out to have always been relished by women who dwell in or near to the past. This is where The Little Reptiles were digitally collected. In recent decades it has become a popular photographic background whenever a maverick cop marries a hooker with a heart of gold.

Yeah I had the same issue with the previous book too. Like why the fuck would anyone care about Hank Jennings throwing the state football game, let alone the FBI.

I mean I wouldn't say I care but I'd prefer that to a description of what happened in the show, which is at least 80% of the new book

Oof. I downloaded the audiobook version of the previous one and *checks schedule* don't think I'll have time for this new one.

Found the most damning and damnable part of he new book.

Once the Double disappeared from Twin Peaks after his meeting with Briggs, he utterly vanished. Every maximum-alert all-points bulletin issued around the world by the Bureau failed to turn up any trace of him for the next quarter century, save two. There was a surveillance photo of the Double from a South American sting operation, which certainly appears to be him, though analysis did reveal hints of digital manipulation, so in the Photoshop era, it may be impossible to authenticate.


Frost is basically Pizzalatte.

https://www.screendaily.com/news/david- ... 03.article

Lynch was asked to comment on Italian director Nanni Moretti’s recollection of Lynch threatening him with death just before the 2001 awards ceremony at the Cannes Film Festival, when Moretti went on to win the Palme d’Or with The Son’s Room over Lynch’s Mullholland Drive.

Recalling the incident, Lynch laughed and said: “I clearly wanted to kill him at that moment. I don’t remember why I felt that way. I love Nanni Moretti.”


:lol:

Finally, Lynch also commented humorously on the idea of him being involved in the sex scandals that Hollywood is currently caught up in: “Stay tuned”.

speaking of, does anyone know if mark frost's novels are any good?

i haven't been a fan of the twin peaks stuff i've skimmed but it's more because i'm pre-disposed to not liking extended universe type stuff, especially in the context of something like twin peaks where the unanswered questions are supposed to be unanswered. i do really like the themes he works with, though, and could see it working a lot better in a non-twin peaks context.

i haven't read any of his non-TP stuff myself, bc the general subject matter didn't really seem like it would be my thing, but i had a friend that checked one out and they thought it was alright? sorry, i know that isn't too helpful, but there are fans out there of his non-TP work

Starting to really dislike Frost. Why does he feel the need to supply details like this? What does he think is gained by doing so?

[Bobby and Shelly] raised Rebecca together but slowly grew apart, as young couples often do. Amicable divorce, shared custody. Shelly's weakness for "bad boys" never went away, but infidelity was not the root cause for their breakup.
Warrants have been issued, but Red, as of this writing, is still on the loose.

The Dick Tremayne one is funny at least. Things like Bobby and Shelly's relationship can be inferred from what was shown in the series. Who needs to have that spelled out further?

It's funny people assumed Frost had to rein David in to keep the story moving forward but now it seems like David had to know when to disregard Frost's drivel.

like frost and co's original season 2 finale script (BOB as evil dentist etc.) is a perfect example of david having to do that in the past, it's just that that dynamic was writ large in s3 with lynch at the helm the whole time
