Twin Peaks: The Return like I had kinda-sorta predicted (see: wishfully thought he might). But he gave his blessing for his character Phillip Jeffries to be featured — whether he knew about the teapot thing or not.

Bowie made a blink-and-you'd-miss-it cameo in the 1992 Twin Peaks spinoff film Fire Walk With Me as Jeffries, a long-lost FBI agent who blows into Gordon Cole's office, sputters some nonsense about "Judy" and disappears in a flash of electricity.

Though it was a bit part, Jeffries was repeatedly name-dropped in the first two episodes of The Return, leading me to the wild theory that David Lynch might have filmed a scene with his longtime friend before Bowie's January 2016 death. Read more...

David Bowie approved his ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’ cameo before he died

David Bowie didn’t make an in-camera appearance in Twin Peaks: The Return like I had kinda-sorta predicted (see: wishfully thought he might). But he gave his blessing for his character Phillip Jeffries to be featured — whether he knew about the teapot thing or not.

Retro-style adventure game is the X-Files/Twin Peaks parody you need

TwitterFacebook

Being a Spooky Detective (as agent Mulder might call it) in the town of Twin Lakes City is no easy task.

But in the new point-and-click pixel art game The Darkside Detective, released yesterday, Francis McQueen is the man for the job, investigating the “strange happenings” in a town where the “citizens are too dumb to notice.” 

In the trailers for indie studio Spooky Doorway’s adventure game, you can see why Twin Lakes needs his help. As the game description reads, who else but McQueen can protect a town “where cultists crawl, where demons dwell, where the occult… occults?”

So ... where the hell is Coop? I'm beginning to think we'll never know.

We are now 12 episodes deep into Twin Peaks: The Return — two-thirds of the way through — and have not seen hide nor perfect hair of the man himself. And to be sure, there's been plenty of MacLachlan.  Read more...

‘Twin Peaks’ has a new ‘Who killed Laura Palmer?’: Where is Agent Cooper?

TwitterFacebook

“Starring Kyle MacLachlan” are the first words to appear at the end of every episode of Twin Peaks, including its Showtime revival, and for good reason: the show’s central character since it first aired in 1990 has always been FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper.

The ‘Twin Peaks’ cast loves David Lynch so much it’s almost uncomfortable

TwitterFacebook

From the way David Lynch treats his poor tortured and haunted characters onscreen, you would never guess how much real people love everything about being around him.

The love expressed Friday for the co-creator, director and star of Twin Peaks isn’t just your garden variety Hollywood glad-handing from a Comic-Con panel. Everyone always says how much they love working with each other here. 

But this is different. Actors really revere David Lynch. 

And of course Lynch is one of those directors who works with some of the same actors over decades — entire careers even. That inspires some mighty warm waves of praise and damn fine loyalty Read more…

David Lynch made a short film for the ‘Twin Peaks’ panel at Comic-Con

TwitterFacebook

David Lynch couldn’t be in San Diego for the Twin Peaks panel at Comic-Con because he would never do a thing like that, let’s face it. It would be too good.

Instead, he made us our very own movie. (And eagle-eared fans may connect it to that notorious and wonderful Episode 8).

Lynch put together a short film of himself for the crowd, and it was definitely more funny-Lynch than eerily surreal Lynch. After Damon Lindelof gave some opening remarks, the reel ran …

The screen starts as static.

The static fades and David Lynch is looking into the camera, and appears to be crouching in a dark room. He holds up a golf ball. Read more…

Twin Peaks has already broken all kinds of Twin Peaks rules.

There's music not composed by Angelo Badalamenti, the Man From Another Place has evolved into a talking tree, Sheriff Harry S. Truman is nowhere in sight and Agent Cooper is definitely not himself right now.

But the biggest difference fans will notice about the new Twin Peaks: Most of it takes place outside of Twin Peaks.

The original 1990-91 show was contained within the fictional border town in the northeastern corner of Washington state — the exception being when the gang crossed over into Canada to visit notorious casino-slash-brothel One Eyed Jack's. Read more...

This old ‘Twin Peaks’ quote could be a big clue to where the new Season is headed

TwitterFacebook

Warning: Contains spoilers for the first four episodes of Twin Peaks: The Return.

Trying to decipher Twin Peaks is like trying to work out the origins of the universe, or to solve the meaning of life.

It’s so damn cryptic and mysterious that sometimes you start to wonder if director David Lynch himself even knows how the whole thing is going to pan out.

Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t at least try and make predictions.
