Twin Peaks redux?
March 25, 2017 9:20 PM - Subscribe

So I'm not sure what the protocol is for a show that has already been done in Fanfare, but in the lead up to the new series, I started KidRuki on Twin Peaks for the first time tonight. Kid's coming into this completely unspoiled, and it is fascinating to watch it through Kid's eyes. (Kid thinks Audrey did it!) Can we do a re-watch until new episodes air in May?

This would be a re-rewatch (or 2nd rewatch), as the full show has been posted as a re-watch already, back in 2014 (!!). You could try doing a new run as a First Watch, to share views from Kid's eyes, and welcome in other first-time watchers, or we could work out some "second go" formatting to kludge repeat re-watches into the system. This could be done with something bold like a line of blocks:


or other visual formatting to separate the prior re-watch(es) from the current/ new discussion, posting the new "break" comment on the agreed upon dates to "stage" the rewatches.

Or we could discuss duplicate re-watch threads, but that would likely break the "prior episode" / "next episode" linking, which currently links to previous and next episodes of the same type (first watch, rewatch, show only, books included).

Or, you could start a new "Books Included" series, given the recent publication of The Secret History of Twin Peaks, and the recent FanFare posting of The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer and The Autobiography of FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes.

I would be into a first watch.

So with 30 episodes plus FWWM, and seven weeks until new episodes... we're looking at 3 - 4 episodes a week. If we do a first watch, we can keep it going with the new season.

I posted this in the two current episode threads but we're doing a MWF plus weekend schedule. I'm posting it as First Watch so we can lead up to the new season next month and keep it together.

I was an active participant/poster for the previous FF rewatch threads, and now that I'm rewatching the whole thing again on Blu-Ray ahead of the new season, I'm looking forward to peeking in on the first watch threads (and maybe leaving a few non-spoiler comments) over the next few months. I have a feeling the revival is going to be a crazy ride for everyone.
