Brief Synopsis:
Picking up 25 years after the events of the original series finale in 1991, FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper is trapped in the Lodge. Now with the help of The One Armed Man, Cooper must avoid the traps his evil doppelgänger has set for him.

Part I combines and trims episodes 1 - 3.
Intention:
Twin Peaks The Return was an exercise in patience. With its combined runtime of nearly 18-hours, some of subplots didn't contribute to the main story of Dale Cooper. As a diehard David Lynch fan I loved every minute of it, but I also know many people found some scenes went on too long and some storylines went unresolved. I decided it would be fun experiment to strip away some of the meandering stories and overtly long scenes/shots to see what a more streamlined version of Twin Peaks The Return would look like.
Additional Notes:
Some people may feel this edit is still too long. While I did trim many excessively long shots, I tried to balance it so that the final product retained that David Lynch quality. Something he does very well is create a sense of foreboding with long takes, a technique modern filmmakers don't do. I also left in some subplots that don't directly impact the Dale Cooper storyline but do impact the people that are part of it.

I rewatched this fanedit and realized that I failed to leave a review the first time around. Sorry Q2!

This really is an achievement. Somehow, Q2 has cut a third out of the show, and yet it still feels like what I loved about the original season. Slow, methodical and taking its sweet time in any given scene. I still have that feeling, but a lot has been excised. The choice of what to cut was spot on, I don't think there are any narrative issues with the main plots due to cuts. These edits manage to retain the pacing I loved but tell the story more efficiently. There are some minor nitpicks (the "between two worlds" font height, would like an intro to Ben a bit earlier, would like to see Steven being shitty before the hotel scene, ummmmm. I think that's all) but nothing that brings down my enjoyment. Here are some things that I loved:
- Insert of Laura in part 1
- Placement of log lady scenes in general
- Two ending scenes in part 1 are perfect
- Repurposing of Blunted Beatz
- Placement of the two 'thumbs up's
- Part 2 ends wonderfully - the Coop(ish) hero moment and then evil getting loose then bang, credits
- Placement of scene where Bobby sees Laura's picture - that scene will get me every time
- Flow of Mr C/Ray plotline
- The balance between the "real world" and the surreal interdimensional stuff felt just right for me
- The use of episode 1 and 8 footage in the final part 5 is inspired. I like how it made some of the connections more clear and played well together

Overall this is a fantastic way of experiencing the Return, a worthy alternative experience. It is of course on my shelf like all of Q2's David Lynch fanedits.

This review will cover the project as a whole as I binged through all 5 parts. I, like many others, eagerly anticipated Twin Peaks: The Return. I watched week after week with anticipation, bewilderment, awe, and frustration. What this edit does best is moves the story along at a quicker pace without sacrificing the work as a whole and removes the frustration. I love how this edit strips away a lot of the side stories that don’t progress the main story line. At the same time, enough is left in to make this still feel like a Lynch creation. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an edit of the series.
