Yesterday my wife got me the TWIN PEAKS Blu-ray set for my birthday, which should come as no surprise to anyone who’s known me since 1990. Then today, both David Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost tweeted the following:
Dear Twitter Friends: That gum you like is going to come back in style! #damngoodcoffee
I’ve grown wary of PEAKS revival rumors — they’ve been happening for years — and I’m always wary of some beloved series or band reappearing, only to soil a wondrous legacy with sub-par new material. E.g., Indiana Jones, The Pixies, Arrested Development. But TWIN PEAKS had a very spotty, and sometimes even lousy, second season when it originally aired. I happen to love the prequel, FIRE WALK WITH ME: an underrated movie. So the promise of an uncompromising Lynch/Frost return doesn’t worry me as much. It’s Lynch, so it’d be bat-shit fascinating even if it wasn’t actually great.
