'Twin Peaks' Revival Delves Deeper Into 'Fire Walk With Me' -- and It's Absolutely Insane (Hi Naomi Watts!)

23 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Woo boy, Twin Peaks fans.

If you thought the first two hours of the Twin Peaks revival were weird, you haven't really seen anything yet.

Let's start with what is easily the David Lynch-iest sequence of the show so far.

The Purple Spaceship

After being expelled from the Black Lodge and taking a quick pit stop in the glass box in New York City, real Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) finds himself in a weird purple spaceship thing with a woman who is listed in the credits as Naido (Nae Yuuki). Her eyes are melted shut, which lends some weight to the idea that eyes are important in Twin Peaks -- Ruth Davenport (Mary Stofle) was missing an eye and it also appeared that Evil Cooper (MacLachlan) shot Phyllis Hastings (Cornelia Guest) through the eye.

The woman eventually disappears and Cooper encounters the shadowy head of Major Garland Briggs (Don S. Davis), who utters the phrase "blue rose »

‘Twin Peaks’ Guide to Returning Characters and How They’re Helping – or Hurting – Cooper: Parts 1 & 2 (An Ongoing List)

24 May 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Twin Peaks: The Return” episodes as they’re released weekly.]

Even if you recently re-watched the first two seasons of “Twin Peaks” through the magic of streaming, that doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily recognize everyone who’s come back for the Showtime revival.

Part of the problem is that there are a lot of people to keep track of. Though it’s a small town, it’s still a freakin’ town with a heathy population that thrives on that sweet mountain air. Even considering that some people end up dead, like Laura Palmer, that doesn’t necessarily preclude their return.

'Twin Peaks': Why the Nineties Show Was Made for the Binge-tv Era

24 May 2017 5:52 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"I am dead – and yet I live," Laura Palmer says in the new Twin Peaks revival, basically speaking for David Lynch's whole fictional world. The filmmaker's slow-motion murder mystery chose the right moment to come back to life – it fits into 2017 much better than it fit into 1990, in the context of a Golden Age glut of ambitious TV that the original show did so much to inspire. Like astrology, Joan Didion or the smooth grooves of Steely Dan, it's a token of boomer culture that speaks to millennials, while »

Twin Peaks: Season Three Ratings

23 May 2017 12:16 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

During its first season in 1990, Twin Peaks performed quite well for ABC. In season two, the series endured multiple timeslot changes and resolved the foundational mystery of who killed Laura Palmer partway through. Unsurprisingly, its ratings fell off and the network cancelled the mystery horror drama, which went on to spawn a feature film prequel, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. Now that Showtime has revived the soapy supernatural series, how will it fare? Will Twin Peaks be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season? Stay tuned. The Twin Peaks TV series revival kicks off 25 years after the murder of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) shocked the seemingly tranquil town of Twin Peaks, Washington. It centers on the return of idiosyncratic FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan). The large Showtime cast also includes: Mädchen Amick, Dana Ashbrook, Everett McGill, Kimmy Robertson, Russ Tamblyn, Ray Wise, Grace Zabriskie, »

The Scariest Scenes in TV History — IndieWire Critics Survey

23 May 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the scariest moment or scene on TV?

Ben Travers (@BenTTravers), IndieWire

Though there are moments within “Penny Dreadful” (the seance) and “The X-Files” (“Home”) that left me spooked, the title for scariest TV scene has to go to the only show to give me nightmares — actual, legitimate nightmares. After watching the first two episodes of “Hannibal,” I woke up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat and haunted by a bright red room with blood running down the walls — twice! Two weeks in a row, “Hannibal” ruined my peaceful slumber, and I had to stop watching the show live (and during the night entirely). Each week, »

"Twin Peaks," Episodes 1 & 2 Recap: Do Not Drop Up

22 May 2017 2:43 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.The world's gone mad. Fortunately for FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), he's been able to sit out most of the real-life insanity of the last 25 years. Unfortunately—as surely known by those viewers familiar with Mark Frost and David Lynch's singular television series Twin Peaks, which returned Sunday, May 21st for a limited, 18-episode run on Showtime—that's because he's been trapped in the unearthly purgatory known as the Black Lodge, all while his devilish doppelgänger, a mortal manifestation of the murderous spirit known as Killer Bob, runs amok among mankind.Already it feels like I'm speaking in tongues. But if Twin Peaks and Lynch (who directed, co-wrote, co-edited, and designed the sound for all of these new episodes) have taught us anything, »

Twin Peaks Cast Remembers the First Time They Heard About the Revival: "I Thought It Was a Joke"

22 May 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Not many casts get to return to their canceled TV show at all, let alone 25 years later, but that's exactly what happened for the cast of Twin Peaks.  When rumors started circulating that a revival was possible, many of the stars were just as skeptical as a lot of fans were.  "When I first heard it was coming back, I thought it was a joke," Sheryl Lee told us at the show's world premiere last week. "And I kept hearing it and hearing it and I kept thinking, this joke is going on a long time. Eventually I reached out to David [Lynch] and found out it was, in fact, happening again."  Part of the skepticism stemmed from the factB that in the past 25 years, many cast »

Twin Peaks Season 3 Review

22 May 2017 8:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“I’ll see you again in 25 years.”

It’s been one hell of a long stay in the waiting room, but Laura Palmer’s foreboding promise, made approximately a quarter century ago, has been kept. A murder mystery set in motion by a homecoming queen wrapped up in drug addiction, prostitution, and plastic, Twin Peaks enthralled audiences for the better part of two seasons in the early nineties and on Sunday, it made its hotly anticipated return to television with a two-hour premiere.

Created by auteurist David Lynch and Mark Frost, the horrific soap rapidly descended into bizarre obscurity following the reveal of Laura Palmer’s killer. An extra-dimensional afterlife, demonic entities, and phonetic reversal represent but a taste of the surreality that Twin Peaks offered its viewers, quite possibly resulting in the show’s cancellation following the completion of its second season.

TV Review: David Lynch’s ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’

21 May 2017 10:04 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The stature of “Twin Peaks,” David Lynch’s two-season surreal murder mystery that ran on ABC in the early ‘90s, is such that its modern-day reboot almost defies interpretation. Showtime’s “Twin Peaks: The Return” picks up the story of Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) and Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) 25 years later, and attempts to be an homage, a sequel, and a standalone story. The unique nature of this revival is overshadowed by the fact that the show itself was always a surprising, weird gem in the otherwise predictable stable of broadcast television programming. It’s hard to know whether it is more surprising that “Twin Peaks” ever existed or caught in the first place, or that 27 years after its cancellation, it has returned on premium cable with so much of the original cast and crew preserved. Lynch brought auteur-ish filmmaking to television, which elevated the medium for many viewers. Now »

'Twin Peaks' Returns as Confusing and Terrifying as Ever -- Here's What Happened in the Premiere!

21 May 2017 9:58 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoilers ahead if you haven't seen Sunday's two-hour Twin Peaks premiere. ​

Twin Peaks returned to TV ​on ​Sunday ​after 27 years and it was every bit as scary, twisted and confusing as the original -- though we expected nothing less from David Lynch.

In the two-hour premiere, there were two distinct threads happening: one with the show's original characters and one featuring new faces and new mysteries. They eventually intersected, but for much of the first hour it was a lot of introducing seemingly unrelated things, most of which were happening outside the titular small Washington town.

The Twin Peaks Sheriff's Department is still going strong with Lucy (Kimmy Robertson), Deputy Andy Brennan (Harry Goaz) and Deputy Chief Hawk (Michael Horse), with Lucy and Andy married and parents to at least one child. But things are about to get weird, as Hawk »

‘Twin Peaks’ Premiere: Debating Whether the Return Lived Up to Expectations, and What David Lynch Is Trying to Say

21 May 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

IndieWire’s Liz Shannon Miller, Hanh Nguyen and Michael Nordine trade notes after watching the two-part “Twin Peaks” world premiere at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. [Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the first two episodes.]

Hanh Nguyen: When the original “Twin Peaks” signed off after two seasons, the character of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) had promised cryptically to Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), “I’ll see you again in 25 years.” At the time, no one really knew what to make of that line, since the show was full of confounding dialogue anyway. I certainly didn’t take it literally. It was a show like no other when it premiered in 1990, and there’s still nothing like it… until now, perhaps.

True to their word, David Lynch and Mark Frost teamed with Showtime to reveal 25 years later that “Twin Peaks” was indeed coming back. It took more than two years to get all of it together, »

Notes On The Breaking Point, Alien: Covenant And The Return Of Twin Peaks

21 May 2017 3:50 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

God bless the Criterion Collection for their forthcoming Blu-ray of a nifty 2K restoration of The Breaking Point (1950), the second swipe at Ernest Hemingway’s novel To Have and Have Not, which is on the company’s release schedule for August 2017. You may have heard of the first version… Bogie, Bacall, Hawks, “You know how to whistle, don’t ya?” Remember that one? Well, this one, the story of a down-on-his-luck charter boat captain Harry Morgan (John Garfield) who gets manipulated into a deadly smuggling run to help make ends meet, is directed by Michael Curtiz, and it trades Hawks’ larky, Casablanca-derived vibe for something decidedly darker, a daylight-splashed noir that somehow ferrets out all the chiaroscuro shadows in Hemingway’s material nonetheless. Throughout The Breaking Point, but especially in the movie’s riveting second half when Morgan allows himself to get roped into a second, even more dangerous scheme, »

‘Twin Peaks': Where’s Donna? Lara Flynn Boyle’s Odd History With the Show

21 May 2017 1:42 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

There are some notable omissions from the 217 names on the cast list for Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” revival, including Heather Graham (who played Annie Blackburn) and Piper Laurie (Catherine Martell). But the most noticeable absence may be that of Lara Flynn Boyle. Boyle played the good-hearted best friend of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). And while her omission from the giant cast list is disappointing, it isn’t a huge surprise. Boyle was famously recast in the “Twin Peaks” prequel film “Fire Walk With Me” — in which the role of Donna was played by Moira Kelly, who is also not appearing in the revival, »

Twin Peaks – Five Questions About the New Third Season

21 May 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch with five questions about the new Twin Peaks

Back in 1991 when Laura Palmer sat with Special Agent Dale Cooper in the Black Lodge informing our FBI Agent, “I will see you again in twenty-five years.”, what we as viewers were not aware about at the time was that both David Lynch and Mark Frost were letting us know that we too, would be seeing the return of the Twin Peaks… a quarter of a century later!

When Twin Peaks began, back in 1990, the initial driving mystery was who killed Laura Palmer this then led to the supernatural Black & White lodge and Windom Earle.  Amongst these mysteries lay the ‘white picket fences’ of a quiet American town, in the Pacific Northwest region, bordering Canada.  However, behind this world of Cherry Pie, Homecoming Queens and Lumber Mills, there were secrets and lies everywhere and that’s before we bring in the supernatural. »
