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.What's an FBI Special Agent to do after being locked away for 25 years in unearthly purgatory? Episodes three and four of Mark Frost and David Lynch's revived Twin Peaks, which aired on Showtime this past Sunday in a two-hour block (aside from September's two-part finale, it's all single, hour-long episodes from hereon out), follow our besuited, Black Lodge-incarcerated hero Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) as he reintegrates into modern terrestrial society. So this is basically Peaks doing Rectify, just with a sterile death row replaced by an infernal hellscape out of Clive Barker. Or David Lynch, really. What's becoming more and more evident as the new Peaks progresses is that the series is, in large part, a repository for Lynch's subconscious, past and present. »
Warning: Plot details for May 4’s Season 2 finale of “Superstore” follow. Do not read unless you have seen Thursday night’s finale episode.
NBC’s sophomore comedy “Superstore” finished its second season with a bang tonight — or more exactly, a cyclone. A tornado ripped through Cloud 9 — opening up a gaping hole in the roof of the store. As the employees ran for cover, tensions boiled over — including a long-awaited kiss between Jonah (Ben Feldman) and Amy (America Ferrera). The episode ends with Amy returning to her family to embrace them both, and Jonah staring after looking a bit forlorn.
Showrunner and executive producer Justin Spitzer, who worked on the “The Office” for several years, is no stranger to the second-season-finale kiss; that show’s star-crossed lovers Jim and Pam finally kissed seconds before end of “Casino Night.” “Superstore” has elements of that crescendo, but with a characteristically different and more realistic tone.

The employees of Cloud 9 just got blown away!
On Thursday, Superstore ended its second season with a bang. Or rather, a funnel, as a massive tornado touched down on the St. Louis-based big-box franchise, completely destroying the store as the employees ran for cover.
“[We] didn’t expect to do it this year, and then we found out that Universal was having to knock down our soundstages to expand the theme park, and they were going to be moving us onto different stages,” Superstore Ep Justin Spitzer recently told Et of demolishing the practical Cloud 9 set on the Universal backlot. “So we knew the set was gonna look somewhat different next year, and we would have to motivate that. Also, it was just a great opportunity to beat the crap out of our current stage and not worry about having »
