Trapped at the Crossroads of Joy and Despair: Twin Peaks Ends, And Takes My Soul With It

September 5, 2017 // 0 Comments

So Twin Peaks came to an end this past weekend, and… Hoo boy. It was a difficult end to a difficult season, one that simultaneously enraged and delighted series fans. I, personally, was left speechless by it. The first hour was rollicking fun, filled with danger and action and terror, and good triumphing over evil. But there was a creeping dread underneath it all, a sense that something… [...]

A Fire Where You’re Going: Twin Peaks Steps Into the Zone

July 25, 2017 // 0 Comments

So we’re eleven episodes in on Twin Peaks at this point, and holy crap. This week’s installment was sheer chaos, a fast-paced episode with so much happening that I could barely keep track of it all. Or at least, the first half of it was. Then things slowed down to the patient crawl to which we’ve become accustomed. That first half, though… Mah gawd. I’m not even sure [...]

Ramblings and Meanderings: Some Random Thoughts on Twin Peaks

July 9, 2017 // 0 Comments

So Twin Peaks returns tonight, after a one-week hiatus. I’m kind of glad we had that week off, too, especially after the phantasmagoria of episode eight. It gave me some time to cool down, stop thinking about the show, and relax. Of course, now that we’re getting close to another new episode, my fascination / obsession has been on the rise again. And I’m finding that the break [...]

“Got a Light?” Twin Peaks Gets Seriously Weird

June 26, 2017 // 0 Comments

So I had planned to play catch-up on the funnybook reviews this week. But then Twin Peaks part eight aired, and… Well. It ended about 12 hours ago as I write this, and I can’t quite get it out of my mind. The show always has that effect on me to some extent, but this one is a David Lynch mind worm like no other, filled with hypnotic imagery and shocking revelations that reverberate up [...]

Fargo Peaks, or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Enjoy the Ride

June 15, 2017 // 0 Comments

So I’ve been in a personal television nirvana here lately. For the last month, I’ve had new episodes of two of my all-time favorite shows: Fargo, and Twin Peaks. But there’s trouble in paradise. My fascination (read: utter preoccupation) with all things Twin Peaks was threatening to overshadow my appreciation of Fargo, even though I generally found Fargo more dramatically [...]

Surprisingly Cogent, Twin Peaks Returns in Style

May 23, 2017 // 0 Comments

So that gum I like has come back in style. That’s right! Twin Peaks has returned on Showtime, under the full creative control of series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost. That control, and that collaboration, is key to the new series. Because the original made its first missteps when they lost control, and fell apart almost completely after Lynch left the production, leaving the rest of [...]
