I hate reviews, and I usually do not give any credence to them . . . but boy, 75 percent of reviews I am reading are not good.

I thought it was absolutely fantastic. Felt like there were a lot of tonal call backs to other Lynch projects, Mulholland Drive and Lost Highway in particular.

Holy fucking shit. That blew me away. People who didn't like it can just not watch it. THAT was fucking amazing.

Managed to stay up for 1/2 of episode 3. Will watch 3 and 4 tonight.

I got through all four (might need to rewatch the second half of four as I was dozing off) and am running on fumes today.

They aired 2 hours last night. They put the first four on their OD becuase we're in a free Showtime demo window and they're trying to hook people into signing up and paying for the rest.

Only a fraction of ?Twin Peaks? old broadcast audience returned for Sunday night?s two-hour premiere of Showtime?s revival, which arrived more than 25 years after it was last on the small screen.  The much ballyhooed return of David Lynch?s TV classic delivered only 506,000 viewers, according to Nielsen. Compared with a premium rival, HBO?s ?The Leftovers? had 770,000 viewers at 9 p.m., and ?Silicon Valley? had an audience of 844,000 at 10 p.m. Even Starz?s ?American Gods,? in its first season, had a larger audience with 631,000 viewers.

?Twin Peaks? 1990 premiere on ABC drew nearly 35 million viewers.

506k paying viewers vs. 35M non-paying viewers... apples and oranges.

Also doesn't factor in that streaming is a thing now vs 1990, especially for a show that dropped 4 episodes OnDemand that day on a station that has a standalone online service and is available to a ton of cord-cutters via Amazon or Sling add-ons.

This landed in my email today:


CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS


From its 1990 premiere, the cult classic Twin Peaks has inspired a myriad of scholarly studies, but only a handful to date have examined the role that music and sound play in Lynch and Frost’s work. Compounding this is a new season that builds upon the sound and music from the original series and Fire Walk With Me. Angelo Badalamenti’s music and the nuanced sound design for the series’ original run and its recent return not only create its ambiance but also contribute to new ways of understanding the soundtrack.


The chapters in this collection illustrate the various ways in which Twin Peaks’ music and sound encourage multiple interpretations in both the original series and The Return.  The collection will cover topics ranging from the show’s sound design to its reuse of well-known musical works.


We invite proposals for chapters approaching the music of Twin Peaks from a range of methodologies. We are interested in considering how the show’s sound and music deepen and change the narrative mysteries at the heart of Twin Peaks.


Possible topics may include, but are not limited to:

    Television genre and the music of Twin Peaks
    Lynch and Badalamenti’s collaborative process
    Star image and the musicians of Twin Peaks
    Twin Peaks fan communities and musical interpretation

Submission Guidelines:

Please submit your abstracts of no more than 500 words and a brief 100-word bio by Friday, February 2, 2018. We have a positive initial response to this project from a respected publisher.  Finished essays will be approximately 6000 words in length, including footnotes. Acceptance of proposals will be sent by email by the beginning of March 2018.

 

Please email your abstract and bio to both editors:

Dr. Reba Wissner at wissnerr –at- montclair.edu

 

Dr. Katherine Reed at kareed –at- fullerton.edu
