    I highly doubt they go in drama. I don’t think they’re an automatic nomination in drama series, and I think actors overall would do better in limited, Machlachlan could even win which I think is doubtful in Drama series. Same with Lynch, and the show itself would have a better chance to win in limited series.

    That’s exactly what I was saying!

    That sex scene was hilarious. But since Dougie isn’t really in his right mind was that rape?

    The scene where Richard stole the money was devastating. It was beautifully done and it was so hard to watch.

    I don’t care for the Casino stuff.

    I love the twin peaks stuff. I hope Lucy busts the crooked cop.

    I need less of Gordon so that Lynch will be guest eligible. But WTF was up with that scene where he saw Laura?

    Good episode, I’ll give it a B

    Unless the rules change, it must be a drama series at the Emmys. They will have complete freedom to do whatever they want for Globes and SAG.

    “Limited Series is defined as a program with two (2) or more episodes with a total running time
    of at least 150 program minutes that tells a complete, non-recurring story, and does not have
    an on-going storyline and/or main characters in subsequent seasons.”

    I think Twin Peaks should be fine in limited with these rules

    They are not enforcing the rules so Twin Peaks would we able to fraud into limited if they wanted. They let The Missing and Gilmore Girls go Limited which was total fraud.

    Yeah, I don’t know much about the missing, but with GG it’s basically the same thing it feels like. I’m going to assume their in limited and make any predictions about the show based upon that assumption until we get official word on where it’s submitting.

    The only reason Gilmore Girls made the limited series ballot was that it was 4 installments, 2 less than the required 6 for drama series. I promise you the Emmys will force Twin Peaks to go drama, just like they did for X Files and 24: Legacy. These discussions are already taking place and that’s what the decision will be.

    But the Emmys no longer require six for series if you have been previously established as such, e.g. Treme and The Big C would not have been miniseries under the current rules for their final seasons.

    I think that you are confusing 24: Legacy and 24: Live Another Day. Legacy was the Corey Hawkins spin-off that was intended to last years (and it was cancelled after submissions), so of course it went drama (and it never tried to do otherwise). It was an entirely different show with its own “created by” credits. Live Another Day was the bonus Jack Bauer season of the normal 24 that was not even subtitled “Live Another Day” on screen, only in marketing materials, hence it was forced to go drama by the guilds. It was the perfect opportunity for the Emmys to enforce their supposed rule about continuations of existing shows not being allowed to go limited, but Live Another Day went limited.

    So, let’s say the show is forced to compete in drama. I don’t think it would do nearly as well there.

    Something else to consider about its placement, and I don’t know if this has any effect, but this isn’t officially considered a 3rd season, it’s the first season of a revived series, where as the X-Files revival was officially season 10.

    The X-Files is also coming back, whereas David Lynch now says that this is a one-off (like Gilmore Girls, which also changed networks from original to revival).

    Tonight was weird and entertaining like always, but I am a little concerned about how everything is going to come together and play out by the end. This season is much less coherent than the old twin peaks. There’s so much going on, does all of it really matter? I hope by the end there is actually a point to this show being made. Hopefully I’m just being impatient.

    Also, I really fucking want Laura Dern to get nominated for this.
