Twin Peaks is coming back! Nine brand-new episodes! Each and every one will be directed by David Lynch!
Okay, I'm gushing. But how often do I geek out about pop cultural matters? I'm the world's most devoted fan of Fire Walk With Me
-- and yes, I've seen the new Missing Pieces
presentation. The new footage is fascinating, but I would not want to see most of it edited into the actual feature (as some fans
have attempted to do).
By the way: Kyle MacLachlan is coming back as Dale Cooper. But he'll be evil this time, since the good Dale is trapped in the lodge. It was established in the original series that he dies twenty-five years after the events that brought Cooper to Twin Peaks, and that he killed Annie (Heather Graham), his first wife. I suspect that he will have married Audrey Horne in order to take control of her father's business. (And who, I wonder, will play Donna?)
Did I ever tell you guys about the weird quasi-prophetic dream I had about this series back in 1972?
