Not dead at all - as long as the original actors don't start dropping out because of Lynch leaving the production..

Speak of the devil..

Lynch is back on board, from his own mouth (or keyboard)...

The check from the network finally cleared!   8)

I have been revisiting the series via Netflix: it had a good number of great character actors, and not just Jack Nance, Everett McGill, and of course the incredible Ray Wise, but also old-timers like Hank Worden, Dan O'Herlihy, and Royal Dano.

I had forgotten that the "dancing dwarf" episode was the third: my memory said it happened much later. 

I think ratings went down after that episode!   ;)

Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

Before the new season premieres, I'm gonna do a marathon of everything so far. I haven't watched the series in a little while. Lynch's work has always been important and personally significant to me. I've been watching a few of his movies again recently, it's just so powerful for me  :-*

It's Time!

Been going through the original 2 seasons, it's just amazing stuff. Nothing like it on TV before, or even after. Mostly through season 2 which I watch less of the later episodes, since I feel it got a little weaker once they revealed Laura's killer (studio pressure). But it's still great. A few highlights....

Season 2: Ep. 7 - Lonely Souls
- The scene at the end in The Roadhouse, and then with Leland and Maddy, and then back to The Roadhouse is fantastically executed. These final 20 minutes are essential Lynch, which makes sense considering it was one of the few episodes from Season 2 that Lynch actually directed himself, and with a script by Mark Frost.
Season 2: Ep. 8 - Drive with a Dead Girl - I've always loved the scene near the end when Audrey visits Cooper at the hotel, and confesses that she always wanted her father's approval, and that she never touched anyone at One Eyed Jacks.

Oh god! Not S2E7, when I re-watched that in February I literally cried. I'm not the person to cry easily but it was really tragic. Lynch really knows how to manipulate the viewers.


Well the rest of the season would take three days, if you're not starting season three tomorrow. It gets better around episode 17 but each episode contains pieces of the puzzle...even the Little Nicky episodes  :-X

IT IS HAPPENING AGAIN

Forgot I started this thread! Time sure flies. I expect Lynch to kick the surreal aspects of the show into overdrive. No way he's gonna be content with just a nostalgic trip.

Yup. He's got a reputation of weirdness but he's quite the Hitchcock when he wants to. Remember in the pilot, Laura's empty chair, Donna and James exchanging glances, the tension keeps building until you snap, just like James breaks his pencil. I hope they teach these scenes at film schools.

Have you heard Chrysta Bell's album?



Produced by Lynch as well. She sang on the song Polish Poem from Inland Empire.

I'm sure Showtime gave him carte blanche with the new Twin Peaks series, so I'm expecting classic Lynch.

Opted for the Showtime channel through Amazon Video. Will have pts- 1 & 2 available at 9pm ET (I live US-Georgia) A big bonus is that parts 3 & 4 will be available directly afterwards, and will resume with episode 5 on June 4th.
I've read this offering of first four episodes is only available with streaming services, whereas Showtime through cable tv services will have to wait until next week to get pts 3 & 4.

How is everyone else watching?

I am recording it: two-hour premiere!   8)

To be sure, after Inland Empire, Lynch would seem to have needed a reboot of his reputation.

Perhaps this will do it?  0:)

I've read that Lynch will not be making anymore films, that Empire was his last. Everything he does from now on will be for TV.
