Mighty Fine Pie for the Twin Peaks Reboot

Flying Lotus Mighty Fine Pie for the Twin Peaks Reboot
Kenny Thornton | 20 May, 2017, 06:24

During the original series, there was a dream in which Dale Cooper saw himself in 25 years time.

No wonder Rosenberg was at least as grateful as he was puzzled: "So much of television is so rigidly mainstream as well as simplistic, transparent and without mystique that you nearly snap your neck doing a double take when sighting a series as gratuitously freakish and magnificently opaque as 'Twin Peaks, '" he cheered.

You'd be forgiven for yawning at news of yet ANOTHER revival of a classic TV series, but there are reasons to believe this one has been in the pipeline for some time.

In October 2014, it was announced that the show would not have a remake or a reboot, but rather a continuation of where they left off.

This is apparent in the promotional teasers. While they do not reveal anything about the new series, they show people and places that are familiar to long-time fans.

Reinig Bridge, one of the locations for the "Twin Peaks" television series, spans the Snoqualmie River in Snoqualmie, Washington, April 28, 2017.

The series premiere is perhaps appropriately shrouded in mystery, other than the fact that Lynch is directing all 18 episodes, which pick up a quarter-century later.

TVLINE | Is there an aspect of the original series you are most proud of? After sitting down with four students who are familiar with the show, it was determined that it is bound to find its place in the mainstream. "That episode was going to be the basis of our argument for whether we were going to come back or not. It has such a niche audience, but that audience is only going to grow because it's subjected to everyone". While the café has been returned to its former state for the most part, the small-town charm remains (as does a "Welcome to Twin Peaks" mural painted on the back of the building). Don't expect any answers to any of those questions until Peaks starts moving, as everyone involved is happily adhering to Lynch's request for maximum secrecy - largely because they have no choice, given how the sprawling Twin Peaks script was divvied out.

"I was up for whatever trajectory they had Cooper on", he told the AP. A lot has changed in the 25 years since Twin Peaks aired on ABC. But as we've seen in the past, nearly everything that was popular - even for just a while - can mount a comeback. "I think it's exciting that he's doing all of the episodes, but I'm also a little nervous because he is so much", Cardot said.

McDonald's pulls ad tying Filet-o-Fish to boy's dead dad
While McDonald's apologized yesterday for upsetting anyone with the commercial, it didn't pull the ad. Some complainants have referenced the proximity to Father's Day.

What do you think people mean when they say something is "like Twin Peaks"? . Good stories need a hero (and the lack of one marks Lynch's more bleak work, such as Inland Empire). "Albert!" That's not much to go on. The duo have penned a new score for the upcoming 18 episodes.

"I love seeing people come out of darkness". Especially with having the same producers.

It might be surprising to realize that David Lynch has only ever made one period piece: The Elephant Man (1980), set in the Victorian era.

When it comes to grief and loss, that feels very authentic in my personal experience, so that may be why I relate so strongly to its presentation, and also why I've avoided rewatching the show for the past six or seven years. That's how I watch TV. And I wanted to go back in there. The ominous opening musical theme, composed by Angelo Badalamenti, was certainly quite chilling, though the discovery of Laura Palmer. well, I knew about that already; it happens only a few minutes after the show begins. By comparison, only 9.6 million households were tuned to a recent week's MOST-watched show.

Besides, where else are you gonna see Sting, Patrick Stewart, Max von Sydow, Jürgen Prochnow, Virginia Madsen, José Ferrer, Sean Young, Linda Hunt and Paul "Bluto" Smith in the same film?

For years, "Twin Peaks" was available only on VHS, minus its original two-hour pilot, locked up in a rights dispute involving a European film version and available only as a bootleg. It is simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious, something very few writer/directors can pull off like Lynch can. They brought with them the auteur's visual sensibility, one unlike any other on TV, with bold camerawork, rich atmospheric shots, and symbolic color schemes.

As cliche as it is, the wait is finally over.

Among 217 listed cast members, MacLachlan's fellow returnees include Madchen Amick, Richard Beymer, David Duchovny, Sherilyn Fenn, David Patrick Kelly, Sheryl Lee, Peggy Lipton, Harry Dean Stanton, Russ Tamblyn, Ray Wise and Grace Zabriskie. More than that, we are drawn to hope and goodness and the fight against evil.
