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.

For the Girls' Sake
17 July 2006 | by (CGSM,Soseaua Nationala 49) – See all my reviews

Lynch knows how to do some gracious,suave,etc.,portraits of women.We get a sample of his skills in this episode,where one has the chance to see this show's ALL four beauties (Lara Flynn Boyle,Mädchen Amick,Peggy Lipton,Heather Graham) ,three of them together.

Mrs. Graham enters the show.

"Audrey" is out for a nice picnic with guest star Zane,all is supposed to be calm,but unfortunately manages to look lugubrious,as if the two were out for a funeral,not a picnic.

Ian Buchanan is again very good and entertaining .

Towards the final,Lynch tries hard to get burlesque with the weasel stuff,but he is far from succeeding,except in a pejorative sense,the scene is disappointing,mechanical and dumb.("Moonlighting" often managed to have exquisite,tasty burlesque finals!)

I liked Lara Flynn Boyle,Heather Graham,Peggy Lipton and Ian Buchanan being in this show;for me,this is enough to provide a pretty good 5o min. show.But the rest is so fake,shallow,pointless and senseless.
