I got a massive deja vu from this comment.

Is it future or is it past?

Hey now! And have you seen Fire Walk With Me? Is that really what he did? Actually, I like The Missing Pieces too so I can't say anything. =)

I usually  find it hard to tell if you're being sarcastic or not but whatever that case may be, Fire Walk With Me was a splendid movie. If we were to get something like that again...
Also it was made during Lynch's "second period", which I prefer most. The mood, music, sounds etc... were best then. Twin Peaks season 3 and Inland Empire belong his third period which is also the Avant-garde one.

He should just make a 2 hour long movie without pointless scenes and it would be both high quality and produced relatively fast.

Spoilers ahead (why are you here if you haven't watched :schierke: )

Killing Littlefinger wasn't just horribly done, he shouldn't have died. Yes, he became redundant but it's completely the writers' fault for not being able to use the best character in the series well. Instead, he got fooled by a dumbass and her overpowered Mary Sue sister. This show's gotten pretty bad story-wise.

Just a few days ago Griffith predicted they'd use Thormund to be the lone survivor to tell them about the Walkers breaching the Wall. Most things in this series are that predictable

Most people thought the Fireman was the kind of fireman who puts fires out but based on the locomotive/train themes around his house + that Jeffries tea kettle which is actually one of those locomotive things it's becoming increasingly clear that The Fireman is one who stokes fire. What does that entail? After all: "Fire is like the devil, coward who hides behind the smoke"

No I don't think it's him, as much as I don't think he's the tree-eyed raven... (you heard about that theorie?)

  the only theory that seems at all satisfying to me is Littlefinger is already dead and Arya is only testing Sansa

I also don't think that's the case.

It wasn't much predictable when they were basing the story on the books. Now that they don't have anything to base themselves on it's pretty easy to figure it out. Especially when the cast is reduced to half of what they were and that the characters are just there to be there when needed.

But there will always be a huge amount of people who does not notice that (the quality drop in the script, the fast moving plots, the characters that seems to regress vs their actual development) it clearly shows that they had an idea in mind and wanted to get there asap, which sucks 'cause the start of the series was great but the end will be sketchy as a whole bunch of tv shows.

Like you said, though imo, from this season it's completely a different fantasy show.

Oh well, it could have been worse... like a certain Once upon a time where I was unable to finish the first episode vs the "Fables" comic series...

They still get most of the story from George R.R Martin. Like that dumb freaking Jon & Dany romance. It's funny because everyone knew this was gonna happen and they still went the most predictable rout. It's also gonna suck when a character as 1 dimensional as those two wins the throne while they kill the few sorta complex characters that are left one by one.

Are people actually surprised about the Night King taking a dragon for himself thing? I saw it coming like since season 4 or whenever the White Walkers were shown This whole show is incredibly predictable and cliche tbh, it has turned into a Disney show for adults. I know what happens next episode and once it's confirmed I'm giving it a 1/10 rating

Update: Using the Twin Peaks Survival Guide Grail posted as a template, I decided to rate the episodes of The Return:

Feel free to disagree, I'm largely going off memory and double checking some episode summaries to job it, there's plenty of episodes that could be downgraded (possibly 4-6) or upgraded (particularly 13 and 15), which would indicate a more balanced season... but nah, I think I'm pretty much right. =)

Swap the rating of episode 14 with that of 15 and you'll have it right

Has to be my favorite episode of the season. So emotional and didn't have the sorta cheap visual look of the previous episode, great atmosphere and the DougieCoop scene made me scream and pause it.

Griffith, I don't understand why you're taking Twin Peaks this seriously. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm really enjoying this season, but I don't understand the urge to find depth or consistency about Twin Peaks (this isn't Berserk) because... There really isn't. I mean, literally everything about this third season is arbitrary (because it could have been anything "25 years later", there's no necessity). Whereas, you've been quite harsh with "Better Call Saul" which is a more consistent TV series (and at least takes itself seriously). I mean, even the origin of "Bob" is an happy accident: a man working on the set appears in a mirror (which is hilarious). The adventures of Dougies Jones are entertaining but, when you think about it, it could have been a spin-off or a series that has nothing to do with Twin Peaks. Anyway, there's also a lot of cynicism involved (like Lynch himself appearing in too many episodes... He's having a blast as an actor).There's also the fact that the third season has been financed by the French tax-payers.

Lmao what? You need to join a Twin Peaks group in facebook or reddit and see the crazy amounts of theories and connections (I'm talking about those that are likely true) if you think there's no depth or consistency. I bet you didn't even notice the creamed corn in Sarah's scene and thought it was pointless, or the fact it was hitting at timeline repetitions in the latest episode. Even the whole Bob, Woodsman etc... stories were hinted 26 years ago, and they have deep figurative meaning

Well, the next one might blow your minds. Why? Sky serien in Germany showed the next episode by mistake.

The thing with brilliant art is that some of it is better understood, enjoyed and valued after re-experiencing it some months after the first time. I watched the first two seasons and FWWM about 3 years ago and really liked them. Didn't really rewatch scenes or even think about TP that much until season 3 began. Then I started spending so much time thinking about it, reading theories and rewatching episodes and particular scenes (just hours ago I rewatched s03 e03 and I could appreciate it far better than first time around), and now I genuinely believe it to be some of the best art ever made, with elements and details so profound that are mostly missed in first watching and only become clear by putting more thought and view into it. Now I deeply love the series. The final s02 episode when the Arm appears and Sycamore Trees is being sung leaves me in awe, much more so than in first view.

I just wish that in season 3 there wasn't so much time wasted on crap like Jacobi's shit-digging shovels and boring conspiracy rants.

P.s FWWM missing scenes are a must watch.

I think Episode 1 was far, far worse than this one.

You're not remembering correctly. Femto is incarnated into a physical body after the tower falls. Later, he and Guts have a discussion on the Hill of Swords.

Well that's better to know because it means that they didn't completely remake his incarnation. Although they did execute it pretty terribly...

Perhaps the worst episode out of a pretty bad adaptation.
And why are Ninas in anime so annoying? Whoever watched this and Code Geass will understand

Also, I haven't read the manga in a while so my memory might be shady, but did this scene with Griffith reincarnating there even happen? I thought it happened in the hill of swords

At least we got Hai Yo and a fantastic Berserk album out of it

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG  :ubik: :ubik: :ubik: :ubik:

That's one thing I didn't expect to wake up to. Can anyone romaji-ze that new Hirasawa song's name? (From what I can gather it's Hai no yō)

I'm still skeptical about this. And not because the poor animation or some artistic choices, but because the story. If they keep focusing on making cool battles, fantastic environments and unnecessary cameos... Well, after all, Berserk isn't more than monsters and blood, is it? What can spectators search besides fanservice?

On the other hand, I don't get how Miura could give the rights to make an anime so easily. Given the amount of effort he has put in his work, I can imagine him very strict with these things. Maybe little to none studios were interested in this? Maybe Hakusensha has very influence over it?

I agree. I got a JoJo feeling watching the teaser, but I guess it's just a teaser and it's too early to say anything. I just hope they prioritize substance over style.

I'm hyped guys.

The 3D CGI looks... well not that good. But regardless, it's going to be The Black Swordsman Arc/Lost Children saga!!! (I assume) I have been waiting for over a decade! It's a teaser so I wouldn't take the animation so seriously. Keep in mind that the movies drastically improved from 1 > 2 > 3. The CGI in Descent was great IMO, and it was well paced. The first movie was crappy, because so much material was skipped.

You guys don't dig this?

I do really dig it. Too bad it will probably be 15% this and 85% of early PS2 game graphics.
Though when I saw this particular face I did think that it was a studio different from 4*C. The movies had Guts with a face that seemed fatter and not rough enough like in the manga or the old anime series for that matter.

Motherfucking Littlefinger all the way. I hope George R.R Martin doesn't kill him off, or if he does then near the end after he's played more people.

It's pretty shitty, as you'd expect from TV Tropes.

Exactly. They were even saying the music of the trilogy fits Berserk more than the OST from the old anime


0:41 kinda reminds me of something...

From where I got this link people were saying Studio C'4 has part on this one too

It's still very objective in my opinion to judge it as an adaptation, which this trilogy is obviously terrible at.
It doesn't matter if they showed the favorite scenes of someone who loves action more than the other aspects, because it's quite possible that one who likes action more than story and character development has a far inferior taste to the others who are the opposite of that (also what the series's spirit is more about), even if this might not be able to be objectively proved to others so far, there is an absolute truth to every particular thing.

Quality itself is subjective though, one person's opinion can't be stated as a universal standard.

Nothing is really subjective, only people lacking the intelligence or methods to objectively judge one thing.

One person's opinion can't be stated as a universal standard, but when he gives arguments and it makes sense it isn't wrongful of him to rage at others claiming the opposite (especially when it's really stupid for them to do, not saying it to you, but many supporters of this trilogy are extremely annoying, check youtube comments in the most viewed Aria video for example).
Also even a billion people's shared opinion can't be stated as a truth just because they are many people believing it, if such a thing is used as an argument that would be an argumentum ad populum fallacy.

So a million people could say they're good, but they're really still bad because you say so?

Yes, actually. Writing quality can be objectively judged.

Actually I know a critic who rated the first movie 4/10 and he hasn't read the manga.
The problem isn't non-existent if they don't think it's terrible, but they might not find it good enough to check the original material (especially because of the moronic fanboys who tell them the adaptation is faithful and put down everyone who criticizes the way the movies were adapted) because this trilogy might just seem not as good or interesting to them and due to ignorance and misleading think the manga might not be that much better.
