That [Twin Peaks] You Like is Going to Come Back in Style

In the interest of getting this thread back out there, since I mistakenly revived a very old one, I'm slapping together a very barebones OP, and will flesh it out as soon as I can. If you're new to Twin Peaks, ask around - the OP is intentionally vague because you really should go into the show as blind as possible.

Twin Peaks is a show by David Lynch that ran for 2 seasons in 1990-91. There's also a prequel movie, Fire Walk With Me, that was released after the series came to an end. It was a cultural phenomenon when it aired, and the spirit of the show has permeated media since it ended. Numerous TV shows and video games have payed homage to the show, some even pretty blatantly taking some of its themes and ideas.

It follows Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) as he is sent to the town of Twin Peaks to investigate a murder for the FBI. The victim is Laura Palmer (Cheryl Lee), a popular high school student. On our journey with Coop to find the true killer, more and more mysteries about the town come to light. Unfortunately, ABC forced the creators of the show to reveal the killer well before the writers were ready to (early Season 2), and the result was a drop off in viewership. The 2nd half of the 2nd season focuses more on what exactly may be going on in Twin Peaks, as Laura's murder is far from the only mysterious event. That wasn't enough to keep people on board though, and the show was cancelled on an absolutely insane cliffhanger that has bothered fans for literally decades.

Enter: Showtime.

Showtime is bringing the series back in 2017, with almost all it's original players. David Lynch will direct every episode, and has written every episode with his Twin Peaks partner Mark Frost. The show will probably be even WEIRDER, because Lynch wasn't even THIS involved during the initial run. His battle for ultimate creative control drove him off the project for awhile, until Showtime finally gave him what he wanted.

I'll be putting together a section of important cast and such here as soon as I have time.

Twin Peaks is available on Netflix in the US, and Hulu I believe, and you should watch it if you haven't.

    I watch the first season over again every few months, but much like the rest of the audience I'm not super jazzed on season two. Not just because of the reveal but it's just not as compelling overall.

    I do love me some Lynchian weirdness, though. So I'm cautiously optimistic about this revival.

    I feel like the second season is pretty strong right up until the James episodes where the entire series takes a nosedive and never recovered.

    Those episodes also made me look back and realize that he's probably the least charismatic actor in the entire series.

    ok can i get something off my chest

    I am really annoyed whenever someone references this show as the name for an in game achievement

    unless you are alan wake in which case that is okay i guess.

    A magician gives you a ring that, when worn, will let you see the world as it truly is.
    However, the ring will never leave your finger, and you will be unable to ever describe to another living person what you see.

    I like Season two on the down-slope because Dale Cooper continues to to be the best human, and because Ben Horne,
    Civil War General, is the best dumb thing.

    I, for one, enjoyed the Mako.

    That cast list is huge.

    I have a lot of anxiety about this show coming back, but mostly I am super excited.

    I rather enjoy Twin Peaks.

    It totally comes back, the last 2-3 episodes are great

    The Black Lodge is maybe the scariest thing I've ever seen??
