‘Twin Peaks’: 7 Damn Fine TV Homages to David Lynch’s Influential Series
It’s no secret that David Lynch’s original “Twin Peaks” series has had a lot of impact on TV series creators and directors. And while his influence can be seen in the small-town themes, quirky characters, striking visuals and sweeping, cinematic shots that are common today, some TV shows haven’t made their love known in oblique ways. Instead, they’ve paid direct homage through references and spoofs.

'Twin Peaks' cast list: 11 major omissions, from Lara Flynn Boyle to Heather Graham

'Twin Peaks' cast list: 11 major omissions, from Lara Flynn Boyle to Heather Graham
What a way to start off the week! The formidable cast list for Showtime's forthcoming Twin Peaks revival series was revealed this morning, and man, is it a doozy. In addition to boasting such key returning players as Kyle MacLachlan (Dale Cooper), Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer/Maddy Ferguson) and Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne), there are a number of surprising A-listers in the mix including Michael Cera, Trent Reznor, Amanda Seyfried and Naomi Watts. On the downside, a not-insignificant number of cast members from both the original series and the 1992 prequel film Fire Walk with Me are completely absent from the list. Where, for instance, is Lara Flynn Boyle (or Moira Kelly, for that matter)? Michael Ontkean? Piper Laurie? Joan Chen? Anyone from the mill? (Literally, there is no one from the mill.) So while I'm thankful that most of the major players are back in action, I can't help but

‘Twin Peaks’ Cast, Crew Celebrate Unseen Footage Release

‘Twin Peaks’ Cast, Crew Celebrate Unseen Footage Release
From David Lynch to the Log Lady, Laura Palmer’s mom and dad and Laura Palmer herself, it was a darn good reunion at Silver Lake’s Vista Theater Wednesday night for the release of “Twin Peaks — The Entire Mystery” on Blu-ray. Almost 90 minutes of outtakes and deleted scenes from 1992′s “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” have been compiled into to nearly an entire new movie’s worth of material that answers a few questions left hanging in the feature film capper to the cult classic TV series.

Lynch introduced the footage with a signature non-sequitur poem. “Tonight I would like to speak about wood,” the director intoned, “Much happiness can be had from observing a tree.”

Many of the cast members hadn’t seen each other in years, so there was much hugging and catching up. In addition to Log Lady Catherine Coulson, Ray Wise (Leland Palmer), Grace Zabriskie

8 Awesome Homages to ‘Twin Peaks’ (Including Cookie Monster)

April 8th marked the 24th anniversary of Twin Peaks’ premiere. But as any good fan knows, this means it’s also been 25 years since Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) first visited the Black Lodge on March 26, 1989, when Sheryl Lee’s Laura Palmer whispered in his ear: “I’ll see you again in 25 years.” For fans, it’s been a whirlwind of cherry pies and snapping fingers, but the anniversary is also a reminder of just how far David Lynch and Mark Frost’s influential show stretched. This wasn’t a little cult affair seen and quoted by few. Glimpses of the show can be seen far and wide in homages, parodies, and vague references from stage to screen, from adult comedy to children’s programming. By this point, just about everyone has seen at least a little Twin Peaks through one of media’s many references, and here are some of the best. Psych

Celebratory Return This October For UK Twin Peaks Festival!

Back in 2010, we all saw the 20th Anniversary of David Lynch’s cult TV series Twin Peaks. Since the cult series ended in 1991, there has been an annual Festival in the town where it was filmed, Snoqualmie/North Bend, Washington but also in November of that year, producer Lindsey Bowden thought London deserved its own and created the first Twin Peaks UK Festival.

The inaugural event was hugely successful with screenings, performances from the Double R Club (a Lynch inspired burlesque and cabaret club) plus special guests including Catherine Coulson who played the Log Lady, Charlotte Stewart who was Betty Briggs (and was also Mary X in ‘Eraserhead’) and Julee Cruise whose hauntingly beautiful music really adds to the mystique of the show. All of this with official David Lynch Coffee and lashings of cherry pie and doughnuts, a Twin Peaks must!

Now, in 2012, they have bought the festival forward a month to October 20th,

TV Fanatic Report Card: Psych

  • TVfanatic
Psych concluded a tremendous fifth season late last month. How did various aspects of this USA stack up? What grade would we give it? Find out now...

Best Episode(s): A tie between "One, Maybe Two, Ways Out" and "Extradition II: The Actual Extradition Part." What made these episodes so great was their integration of the Shawn and Juliet plot within the greater context of the story.

Worst Episode: "Ferry Tale" did nothing to advance what seemed to be the larger goal of this season: character growth both as a group and as individuals.

Best Character: Hands down, John Michael Higgins as Clive Prescott. In Psych’s homage to Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Higgins played the quintessential gentleman, capable of seducing any woman he wanted, but specialized in educating younger men in the art of seducing the classiest of cougars.

Worst Character: Mr. Yin. But it's not his fault. While

Twin Peaks: 20th Anniversary Homage to David Lynch Show on Psych

  • TVSeriesFinale
It seems Psych series star James Roday is a big fan of Twin Peaks and has wanted to do an homage to the legendary David Lynch series for quite awhile. Roday co-wrote tonight's episode, titled "Dual Spires," and it revolves around Shawn (Roday) and Gus (Dule Hill) in a small town (Dual Spires) trying to solve the murder of a Laura Palmer-like young woman. Fittingly, the murderer of Laura Palmer was revealed 20 years ago tonight on ABC.

Roday tells Zap2It that they crafted roles specifically for the Twin Peaks veterans they hoped they could get to appear. Robin Lively, Lenny Von Dohlen, Sheryl Lee, Sherilyn Fenn, Dana Ashbrook, and Catherine Coulson gathered for the episode. Roday noted, "I think what we discovered is that a lot of them haven't seen each other for 15 or 20 years."

A Dark Prophecy from Downstream

Sometimes what is horrifying is not what happens to people, but what can happen to all of us in the future. Downstream is an an independent production that completed in 2008 and now an official movie poster is available along with the synopsis, which does not portray tomorrow as something to look forward to. In Downstream's future: "the food supply has been wiped out, and cancer rates for women have skyrocketed, depleting the female population." If that is not horrifying enough visit Quiet Earth to see the latest trailer that shows a world rampant in violence where central Wes Keller can only dream of hope and a better tomorrow.

A synopsis for Downstream here:
