  • Hey, I am trying to watch Twin Peaks, I'm at 4th episode but it's so boring actually. It's not even a mystery show, it's love and drama of the people. I always want to stop watching but something happens in the end so I can not resist. That dream scene, came up for example and then we learnt about a secret cult that protects the town from something inside the woods. I don't know I want to watch but... Is it always boring? Is it always a drama thing? There is no detectivity by the way, you know, clues and something. Mystery is being solved without clues but by some dreams and it kills all the mystery in my opinion. Should I keep watching, is it worth it?

    • Quite honestly, if you're not already on board with the show you probably won't ever be. I would watch until the second season premiere and quit after that if it still doesn't click.

      I will say that the mystery does eventually get solved, but it is with a certain degree of mysticism and divine intervention. Some people like that about the show, some don't.

    • Agreed wholeheartedly with Pyramidhead. It just may not be the show for you, and that's okay.

  • Did you notice that the sounds Naido made as you were with her in the metal box were the same that the ghostly figure made when it attacked Tracey and Sam? Perhaps your faith in Diane is misplaced?

  • I recall the Ferrer/Robocop casting comment by Lynch as well.  I'll look around and see if I can find the reference.  Like you, I know I've read it.

  • Hey! Great work getting all those actors articles up, just wanted to suggest that maybe it would be better to lead off with the Twin Peaks relation. For example it's a little odd to start reading Arnie Stenseth and get hit with something a about a video game, I think the general format should be

    X is a Y actor who (appeared/guest starred) in (Twin Peaks/the Twin Peaks pilot/etc) as Z.
    Separate paragraph, bio, credits, etc.

    I want to also have some standard way of listing other movies and TV roles but that can come later, thoughts?

  • Hi, I added a link to the SNL Sketch about Twin Peaks from dailymotion.com and you deleted it as an "unauthorized upload".  I was just wondering why and if I broke a rule or something? I apologize if I missed something, I was just trying to contribute to the wiki.  The URL is here: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7o2ca_twin-peaks-parody-by-saturday-night_fun

    • No worries, it's just that it's not an upload officially authorized by NBC and I'd rather not host links to potentially pirated material.

  • If you do - I've been having a blast putting all this together, and I'd really like to help out even more with moderating, keeping the new pages up to date, etc. Plus I have a few ideas - touching up the main page, adding the actual title font (no more of those header images!), and further improving the timeline mechanics - that would be much easier with the ability to get into the site CSS/JS. I did the current design of the 24 wiki so I definitely have a bit of experience in that area haha.

  • Page 212 of secret history states that nadine spoke with jacoby about the drape runners in 1987. Has this discrepancy been noted?

    • Is it a discrepancy? I just assumed she had been obsessed with creating silent drape runners for quite a while by the beginning of the series, but I could be wrong.

  • The only other two are German and Polish  (no content on this one, though).

  • User 74.118.91.222 is mass replacing references to the Bang Bang Bar with the Roadhouse. Which - whatever, don't care, but he's also removing all the links to the Roadhouse article despite being asked not to. Plus he's adding random stupid comments.

    • I agree with Pyramidhead, articles names should use the name that is the most comonly used and not necessarily the most precise one (eg "Dougie Jones" and not "Douglas Jones", "Jerry Horne" instead of "Jeremy Horne" and so on). Of course there might be debate about what is the more common for some pages and I guess we should do a case by case talk for them. That's the way the Dr Who wiki does for example.

      I think we should therefore change all mentions of "Bang Bang Bar" into "Roadhouse" since nobody used the former in dialogue. Though that would not be the most important thing to do with all the new info we have currently I guess.

      If we need to think of a narrative explanation, it might be something like the Double R case in which someone tried to change the name with a new sign but nobody actually used it. Also kinda like the Twin Peaks Gazette which became the Twin Peaks Post (even on the TV series props) but nobody called it by its actual new name in dialogue.

    • Yeah, that's definitely what we should do. I'm not personally going to edit articles simply to change the links (you guys can, if you want to, just too tedious for me) but I'll definitely change any when I'm making more significant edits.

  • I've actually encountered a similar issue over on one of the other wikis I'm contributing to: trying to keep coverage up-to-date while also being respectful of people who didn't have immediate access to the episodes when they came out for the public or were released on paid streaming services.

    What we've ended up doing is keeping the coverage up-to-date, but for a certain period of time hiding any and all new information under a spoilers tab––in our case after about a week, although the distribution system for that particular show is a little different. This includes plot summaries, character lists, trivia, and any new information on character pages. I think that might be a sufficient way to be courteous to people while still allowing people who've seen the episodes to be able to check the wiki.
