‘Twin Peaks’ Christmas: Hear Dale Cooper and Others Sing Their Creepy Take On a Carol — Turn It On Podcast

‘Twin Peaks’ Christmas: Hear Dale Cooper and Others Sing Their Creepy Take On a Carol — Turn It On Podcast
On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: A body, dead, wrapped in plastic.

And so begins “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” as recorded in 1990 for Kroq-fm’s “The Kevin and Bean Show.” The morning drive radio program used to put out an annual Christmas album, and for the first one, Jack Nance, Dana Ashbrook, Frank Silva, Kyle MacLachlan, Kimmy Robertson, and Robert Bauer created their own rendition of the classic holiday tune. Among the highlights: Twelve cups of coffee, 11 cherry pies, eight dancing midgets, five dozen donuts, four talking logs, three possessed souls and two secret diaries. And of course, the dead body of Laura Palmer.

You can listen to that, and several more holiday songs from and inspired by TV shows, as part of Turn It On’s special Christmas episode! Listen below!

Among the songs: Julian Casablancas does a rendition of the “Saturday Night Live

David Lynch Reacts to Hollywood Sexual Harassment By Evoking the Golden Rule

David Lynch Reacts to Hollywood Sexual Harassment By Evoking the Golden Rule
David Lynch recently visited the Ukraine capital of Kiev for the launch of his new charity organization, the David Lynch Foundation in Eastern Europe, and reporters attending the event couldn’t help but ask the lauded director about Hollywood’s sexual harassment and abuse issue.

“Sexual harassment is the new topic of the day. Harvey Weinstein started this thing and it’s like an avalanche,” Lynch told the press. “Now everybody and his little brother are talking about sexual harassment.”

Lynch then evoked the golden rule for a simple solution of how to end harassment: Treat others the way you want to be treated. The director noted that we are judged by how we treat our fellow man, and learning how to treat others starts with deciding how you want to be treated yourself.

The 10 Best TV Shows of 2017

Samuel Brace with his ten best TV shows of 2017…

Wow. What a year it’s been.

2017 has been a true standout for high quality television; featuring never better returning favourites, premium series finales, and new shows announcing their arrival onto the stage. There’s been a bit of everything in 2017 but just which of its myriad TV entries have transcended above all others? Well, that’s why we’re here today, to present to you the 10 best TV shows of 2017.

10. Legion

This was certainly unexpected, not because its showrunner (Noah Hawley of Fargo) isn’t talented but because of its subject matter. An X-Men spinoff show about Xavier’s son? “No thanks” many said, but the many were wrong, Legion was terrific. A truly bizarre adventure, this mind bending FX escapade forced itself away from the pack by bringing prestige TV back to the superhero genre after Netflix temporarily departed it a few series ago.

James Marshall & Louis Mandylor cast in new drama ‘Three Knee Deep’

Luna Films today announced that James Marshall (Twin Peaks) and Louis Mandylor (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) have signed to star in the new series Three Knee Deep, which goes into production in Bucharest in January 2018… Marshall is hot off Showtime’s Twin Peaks, in which he reprised his role of James Hurley, while Mandylor recently completed work on Jesse V. Johnson’s The Pay Up. Holt Boggs, Adam Horner, Manuela Harabor and Marius Stanescu co-star in the series.

A harrowing psychological drama set against the backdrop of the world of “black op” special rendition and detention, the show will follow the lives of a handful of criminals incarcerated in a secret prison and the lengths that certain government officials will go to get what they want.

The first season of Three Knee Deep will consist of 5 episodes, and will be shopped upon completion. Bobby Barbacioru directs and produces under his Luna Films umbrella.

Kyle MacLachlan is “thrilled and humbled” by his Twin Peaks Golden Globes nomination, 26 years after first winning

In 1991, Kyle MacLachlan won a Golden Globe for his role in Twin Peaks, and now, 26 years later, he has picked up a nomination for the very same show.

Much was expected of Twin Peaks upon its return and for ardent fans of the surreal David Lynch mystery series, it didn’t disappoint. The Golden Globes certainly seem to agree, handing out a nomination to Kyle MacLachlan for best actor.

Over the moon about the news, MacLachlan provided his response to the nomination (via Deadline), one that is incredibly sweet after first winning for the show all those years ago.

“I’m truly thrilled and humbled by the nomination this morning. What a surreal experience to be nominated today for a role that I was so lucky to win this award for 26 years ago,” said MacLachlan in his official statement. “I am so grateful to the HFPA for this acknowledgment, and

‘Gunpowder’ Review: Kit Harington Needs a Dragon’s Fire to Spark This Handsome Historical Yarn

‘Gunpowder’ Review: Kit Harington Needs a Dragon’s Fire to Spark This Handsome Historical Yarn
Gunpowder” invites a lot of comparisons to “Game of Thrones.” Much of the three-hour series is spent watching Kit Harington swing his sword around, sport period garb while walking through castles, deliver stirring motivational speeches, and recruit an army to defend his fellow men from persecution. Future generations can look at .gifs of a grimacing Harington and guess, “‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘Gunpowder’?”

As fun as that sounds, the limited series deserves slightly more respect than such frivolity implies. It’s an earnestly made, well-told, true story about a group of 17th century Catholics who rebelled against a Protestant king that saw their faith as a threat and wanted them eliminated. Dragons do not belong here, nor should one wish for them to fly in and set the world ablaze.

But while “Gunpowder” tells its story clearly and respectably — previously unaware British viewers will see Guy Fawkes Day differently — its

The 50 best TV shows of 2017: No 3 Twin Peaks: The Return

Weird and weirdly wonderful, David Lynch’s maximalist reboot was smarter, funnier, stranger and more perplexing that anything else on TV

More on the best TV of 2017More on the best culture of 2017

Twin Peaks: The Return might not have been the best TV series of 2017 (according to this poll, at least). Then again, it might not be a TV series at all. Earlier this month, Sight and Sound’s critics’ poll of the finest films of 2017 put David Lynch’s drama at No 2, ahead of Call Me By Your Name, The Florida Project and Dunkirk. The decision prompted howls of rage from snooty cineastes – but it was also quite fitting. Twin Peaks wasn’t interested in being constrained by categories and boxes; it could be anything you wanted it to be.

Still, The Return made most other TV series look small by comparison. It was smarter than most shows,

Doug Jones: ‘Twin Peaks’ Fans Celebrate the Democrat’s Upset Win in Alabama With Dougie Jones Gifs

Helloooo-oooo! Doug Jones pulled off an upset win last night, becoming Alabama’s first Democratic senator in more than 20 years in the process. “Twin Peaks” fans, well aware that the newest member of Congress (almost) shares a name with one of Kyle MacLachlan’s many incarnations on “The Return,” celebrated with an appropriate smattering of gifs, memes, and other jokes.

SAG Nominations: 16 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

SAG Nominations: 16 Biggest Snubs and Surprises
This year’s Oscar race is still as undecided as a swing state voter. On Wednesday, the Screen Actors Guild nominations failed to offer much clarity. Fox Searchlight’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” led with four nominations, more than any other film. However, other sure bets — such as “Shape of Water,” “Dunkirk,” and “The Post” — were left out of the best SAG ensemble category, usually a predicator of things to come at the Academy Awards.

On the TV side, the SAG Awards has a spotty track record when it comes to recognizing new shows. Last year, the group embraced “Stranger Things” (and did so again). This year, it also bestowed plenty of love to “Glow” and “Ozark,” two of the buzziest shows from Netflix. But in doing so, it snubbed critically acclaimed new offerings like Amazon’s “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” as well as Showtime’s “Smilf” — both of which picked up multiple Golden Globe nominations.

SAG Awards 2018 TV Snubs and Surprises: ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Fargo’ Come Up Empty, ‘Glow’ and ‘Ozark’ Shine

SAG Awards 2018 TV Snubs and Surprises: ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Fargo’ Come Up Empty, ‘Glow’ and ‘Ozark’ Shine
Niecy Nash and Olivia Munn unveiled the 2018 SAG Awards nominations with casual bursts of joy and humor Wednesday morning, and the list of TV nominations seems to reflect their devil-may-care attitude. There were plenty of sweet surprises and thus plenty of stunning snubs.

From series that performed beyond expectations — like “Glow” and “Ozark” — to shows that somehow didn’t make the cut — like “The Deuce” and “Fargo” — the TV nods require a bit of breaking down to make sense of it all.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of shows and performers that had their expectations dashed, and others who got the one good surprise phone call so early in the morning. These are the snubs and surprises of 2018:

‘David Bowie: The Last Five Years’ Trailer: HBO Documentary Takes You on Ziggy’s Final Ride

‘David Bowie: The Last Five Years’ Trailer: HBO Documentary Takes You on Ziggy’s Final Ride
Prolific up until his the very end, David Bowie is a model to so many artists precisely because he never stopped evolving. “David Bowie: The Last Five Years,” a new documentary from HBO, will chronicle the musician’s final projects, battle with cancer, and creative process. In the newly released trailer, the film promises archival footage, interviews with close friends and collaborators, and nuggets of wisdom from the man himself.

Aspiring musicians will no doubt be moved by Bowie’s indefatigable creative spirit. In one interview, he lays out one of his artistic tenets: “Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in. And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about at the right place to do something exciting.”

‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson’ Review: An Ode to Jean-Claude Van Damme, His Movies, and Not Much Else

‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson’ Review: An Ode to Jean-Claude Van Damme, His Movies, and Not Much Else
In 2017, there’s a show for everyone, and typically that’s a good thing. There’s so much demand for fresh content and so many content providers looking to stand out, fresh stories from distinct voices populate an ever-diversifying television landscape. In other words, this is a world that could easily have room for a show where Jean-Claude Van Damme plays Jean-Claude Van Damme, a movie star who’s also a highly trained international spy.

But for as nutty as “Jean-Claude Van Johnson” sounds, its execution feels too familiar to earn its spot. Though the story-building in the pilot is clever enough to provide ample opportunity for good old-fashioned fun, too many easy jokes and half-baked movie homages keep the six-episode first season from fulfilling its potential as the sharp meta successor to “Episodes,” “The Comedians,” or even Van Damme’s 2008 film, “Jcvd.”

For starters, “Jean-Claude Van Johnson” has nothing to say about the industry,

Jada Pinkett Smith Accuses the HFPA of Not Even Watching ‘Girls Trip’ for Golden Globes Consideration
Update: A source with knowledge of the situation tells IndieWire that there was an HFPA screening of the film in July and that members were also invited to the premiere.

Earlier: There were many snubs and surprises in yesterday’s Golden Globe nominations, as there always are, but few got more attention on social media than the complete shutout of “Girls Trip.” The film wasn’t nominated for Best Picture — Comedy or Musical, and Tiffany Haddish (who won the Nyfcc Award for Best Supporting Actress) was likewise unrecognized.

According to her co-star Jada Pinkett-Smith, the problem isn’t that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association didn’t like their movie — it’s that they didn’t even see it.

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race
The Golden Globes are traditionally TV’s awards disrupters. With so many new shows nominated, it elevates them long enough to (potentially) make a difference at the Emmys. But the SAG Awards are a more telling barometer of industry enthusiasm.

Actors make up a large chunk of the TV Academy membership — much more so than the 80-odd members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — which means seeing what they’re rewarding in December can often predict what might be a player when Emmy season begins next spring.

With so many shows launching in April to take advantage of Emmy voting, series that premiere in the fall need Globes and SAG Awards love to keep buzz alive through the winter and into the spring. Shows like “The Deuce,” “Glow,” “Ozark,” “Mindhunter,” “Godless,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Smilf” are aiming for a little extra attention right now.

In 1991, Kyle MacLachlan won the Golden Globe for his role in David Lynch’s cult classic Twin Peaks.

'This Is Us' Star Chrissy Metz on the Adorable Way She Found Out About Her Golden Globe Nom (Exclusive)

'This Is Us' Star Chrissy Metz on the Adorable Way She Found Out About Her Golden Globe Nom (Exclusive)
Chrissy Metz learned about her Golden Globe nomination in the cutest way possible.

The This Is Us star earned her second nom in two years for her performance as Kate Pearson, and Et’s Leanne Aguilera was on the set of NBC’s hit family drama on Monday morning to celebrate Metz’s latest achievement.

Turns out, the 37-year-old actress preemptively discovered she was nominated before they were even announced. As Metz recalls, her boyfriend, Josh Stancil, dropped by her house moments before because he had a gut instinct that her name was going to be called.

“Josh called me [this morning]. He was like, ‘I’m coming over!’ I’m like, ‘Ugh, this is presumptuous, it’s not gonna happen, Josh.’ He’s like, ‘That’s not true. You always tell me you have to manifest what you want,’” Metz said. “He came over in his pajamas. I open up my laptop and then of course, [presenter] Garrett [Hedlund] was like, ‘Chrissy Metz
