Did You Know?


Annie was written in specifically to give Dale an "appropriate" love interest. Cooper's and Audrey's "relationship" was heavily publicized in TV Guide and other entertainment magazines. The move alienated audiences and caused a further decline in the show's already suffering ratings. Crew members who would later attend the annual Twin Peaks convention reported that MacLachlan was pressured into the decision by his then-girlfriend, Lara Flynn Boyle, who did not want her boyfriend sharing love scenes with Fenn, with whom Boyle did not get along on set.

Back on track....
27 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is no secret that the show lost steam starting from episode 10 of the 2nd season, and it lasted 4 to 5 episodes, but by now, the show has gotten back on track. There are still some flaws, but the direction and writing already have the same tone and feel as it had before when Laura's mystery wasn't solved yet. The suspense is there once again, and the characters' plots are finally coming full circle. If you watch this series, and learn about the downfall in the middle of the season, don't worry, it lasts at most only 5 episodes. Plus, even when Twin Peaks was at it's weakest, it is still better than most Television shows out there. Twin Peaks is surely going to keep the plots coming!
