Twin Peaks

That was a fucking good show.

by The Log Ladyreply 10505/16/2017

I was thoroughly fascinated, though I was very annoyed when Joan Chen became a drawer knob on the nightstand.

by The Log Ladyreply 105/27/2012

Love this show. I can't believe Kyle McLaughlin was Dale Cooper and Zack Carey.

by The Log Ladyreply 205/27/2012

The start of my Sherilyn Fenn crush.

by The Log Ladyreply 305/27/2012

Haven't seen the show since it aired originally, I was in my early 20's.

r1 - same here, they lost me with that.

I was really creeped out when Laura's father got taken over by the creepy dude.

Loved Agent Cooper, though I never cared for the actor in other parts too much.

I wanted to look like Sherilyn Fenn.

by The Log Ladyreply 405/27/2012

I remember they used to air it on Bravo, when Bravo meant arty movies and long forgotten cult shows, not real Housewives and Andy Cohen.

by The Log Ladyreply 505/27/2012

The first season, and the second season's first episodes up until the killer is revealed, are all brilliant.

After that? It lost its way.

But it was canceled just as it was finding its way again.

by The Log Ladyreply 605/27/2012

You and me both, R4

by The Log Ladyreply 705/27/2012

God, I loved this show, one minute hilarious and then totally creepy. Never missed an episode but my best friend couldn't stand it, yet he came over every Sat to watch. He couldn't believe the dresser knob sequence either. Finally the movie came out and we went to a multiplex to see it. We're sitting there and Laura is in her room, she's scared, there is great tension then and a white horse appears and my friend yells "Jesus Christ", gets up and walks out. The audience roared with laughter because they knew, either ya love or ya don't. He went to watch something else because he knew I wasn't going anywhere.

by The Log Ladyreply 805/27/2012

The actor who played Bob used to scare the shit out of me. And the scene were he kills Laura's brunette cousin is some of the most brutal stuff I've ever seen on television. It's hard to believe this aired on network TV. Now it would only survive on cable.

by The Log Ladyreply 905/27/2012

R8... I *loved* the series.

I thought the movie, "Fire Walk With Me" was horrible, awful, a rank piece of shit.

by The Log Ladyreply 1005/27/2012

Piper Laurie was fucking fierce on that show. Catherine debating about whether or not she should save Shelly's life was a delicious scene, and the Josie/Catherine feud was my favorite storyline.

But drawer knob Josie... yeah, that kind of sucked.

by The Log Ladyreply 1105/27/2012

A revival of TP could work on cable.

by The Log Ladyreply 1205/27/2012

I still want silent drape runners.

by The Log Ladyreply 1305/27/2012

Same here r9. Interesting story of how Frank Silva was cast.

by The Log Ladyreply 1405/27/2012

Until that guy got all psycho about pie, there was no such thing as a foodie.

by The Log Ladyreply 1505/27/2012

Isabella Rossellini was originally slated to play "Giovanna Pasquialini Packard", which then became Josie Packard played by Joan Chen. Oh what could have been...

by The Log Ladyreply 1605/27/2012

I also enjoyed the parody of Twin Peaks on Psych called Dual Spires. Especially the last scene. A real hoot.

by The Log Ladyreply 1705/27/2012

R16 Isabella would have been wonderful.

by The Log Ladyreply 1805/27/2012

R17, the show "Picket Fences" also did an amazing Twing Peaks spoof episode.

by The Log Ladyreply 1905/27/2012

Three words: Michael Fucking Ontkean!!

by The Log Ladyreply 2005/27/2012

I love a good piece of cherry pie.

by The Log Ladyreply 2105/28/2012

I loved it when Joan Chen died and turned into the knob on the nightstand drawer.

by The Log Ladyreply 2205/28/2012

It was great and innovative but got tired and repetitive after the first 10-15 episodes.

by The Log Ladyreply 2305/28/2012

R21 - It's a damn good piece of pie.

by The Log Ladyreply 2405/28/2012

[quote]Catherine debating about whether or not she should save Shelly's life was a delicious scene,

"What?... What?... I still can't hear you, you've got something in your mouth!" -- Catherine Martell, to a gagged and tied-up Shelly

by The Log Ladyreply 2505/28/2012

She's dead. Wrapped in plastic.

by The Log Ladyreply 2605/28/2012

Sherilyn Fenn was so hot on this show.

by The Log Ladyreply 2705/28/2012

Short interview with Sherilyn at the time

by The Log Ladyreply 2805/28/2012

Scene with Sherilyn

by The Log Ladyreply 2905/28/2012

Yeah I always loved anything Dolly Parton was in

by The Log Ladyreply 3005/28/2012

I tried to get into TP, but found it just insufferable. Have to agree with R9, though, the murder of Laura's cousin was over-the-top brutal.

by The Log Ladyreply 3105/28/2012


by The Log Ladyreply 3206/01/2012

I preferred Melrose Place.

by The Log Ladyreply 3306/01/2012

"I thought the movie, "Fire Walk With Me" was horrible, awful, a rank piece of shit."

To each his own - I thought it was a brutal and searing look at the consequences of sexual abuse with a riveting performance from Sheryl Lee...

by The Log Ladyreply 3406/01/2012

I liked Fire Walk With Me, too. I miss those shows.

by The Log Ladyreply 3506/01/2012

That cast was filled with very sexy guys: MacLachlan, Ontkean, Dana Ashbrook, Eric Da Re, Michael Horse, Gary Hersberger, hot daddies like Richard Beymer.

Plus the first season WAS brilliant.

by The Log Ladyreply 3606/01/2012

Have any of you rewatched it recently? I tried to last summer and yikes. It does not hold up well at all. What was innovative 20 years ago just came off as silly now.

by The Log Ladyreply 3706/01/2012

I was a college freshman when the show was popular. The snooty girls across the hall would invite us over to watch. They served coffee and cherry pie, of course. I thought the show was boring but the free food was a nice treat.

I really like the music. I have the TV show and movie soundtracks on CD.

by The Log Ladyreply 3806/01/2012

Lara Flynn Boyle was beautiful in this show. And the guy who played Bobby, Dana Ashbrook, I think, was very very hot. Excellent score too.

by The Log Ladyreply 3906/01/2012

LFB went downhill shortly after Twin Peaks.

by The Log Ladyreply 4006/01/2012

Laura Palmer was the most interesting character - they should have had cousin Maddie the one who was killed, and Laura masquerade as Maddie. David Lynch had been a big fan of the 40's film noir, Laura and he left red flags that that was what he was playing out.

by The Log Ladyreply 4106/01/2012

What is this Joan Chen drawer knob sequence you speak of? I don't remember that at all.

by The Log Ladyreply 4206/01/2012

[quote] What is this Joan Chen drawer knob sequence you speak of? I don't remember that at all.

When her character dies her face appears on the knob of the nightstand or dresser, and makes some kind of silent scream. At the time the special effects must have cost a pretty penny, but it was Joan Chen dying after all.

by The Log Ladyreply 4306/01/2012

Sometimes my arms bend backwards.....

by The Log Ladyreply 4406/01/2012

Here is the knob scene, using early CGI. Let's take a look, shall we?

by The Log Ladyreply 4506/01/2012

Let's not forget Special Agent Dale Cooper's dream.

by The Log Ladyreply 4606/01/2012

Absolutely haunting opening theme. The soundtrack still sells.

by The Log Ladyreply 4706/01/2012

Anyone remember David Duchovny's guest spot?

by The Log Ladyreply 4806/01/2012

The TV show was utterly brilliant and daring.

The movie was one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

by The Log Ladyreply 4906/01/2012

The arrival of Albert. Don't miss 1:04

by The Log Ladyreply 5006/02/2012

r. 48 How can I not remember Duchovny in Twin Peaks? I still dream about her twin peaks under her bra.

by The Log Ladyreply 5106/02/2012

The diner is real. I had cherry pie and coffee there.

by The Log Ladyreply 5206/04/2012

Where is it r52?

by The Log Ladyreply 5308/11/2012

I'm rewatching it now. I had forgotten about Agent Cooper's obsession with trees. Sherilyn's Audrey just oozes lust.

by The Log Ladyreply 5411/04/2012


by The Log Ladyreply 5511/04/2012

At least two members of the cast (Russ Tamblyn and Mary Deschanel) had daughters who became well known actresses.

by The Log Ladyreply 5611/04/2012

It was like your worst dream. And your best nightmare.

by The Log Ladyreply 5711/04/2012

Twin Peaks initially aired during my senior year of high school. I don't remember what day it aired, but whatever the next day was, my deep country Connecticut first period French AP class, all 5 of us, would giddily discuss. (Girls and the gays they tried to date.) First, we had to go get bagels and coffee while Monsieur waited.

Ineffectual as he was, he made us talk about it in French. I've pretty much lost all of my French, but I remember those discussions. And how brilliantly stupid they were.

by The Log Ladyreply 5811/04/2012

2012 interview with Sherilyn on how she got the part.

by The Log Ladyreply 5911/04/2012

Alicia Witt played Donna's youngest sister.

by The Log Ladyreply 6011/04/2012

Don't remind me, r5.

by The Log Ladyreply 6111/04/2012

Anne Hathaway could play the Amick role today.

by The Log Ladyreply 6211/10/2012

Lynch needs to wake up and make another movie or tv show. With HBO or Showtime he could probably put together another incredible series.

by The Log Ladyreply 6311/10/2012

Still probably the best soundtrack ever for a TV show, and equal to just about anything in the movies.

Here's the opening theme, "Falling," with the lyrics, not just the instrumental. Julee Cruise, who sings it, looks like Ellen Greene in "Little Shop of Horrors."

by The Log Ladyreply 6411/11/2012

Thanks R64 - and yes, Julee does look like Ellen.

by The Log Ladyreply 6511/11/2012

over-rated series, could not keep up its initial momentum. Log Lady? really?

and that suicide inducing music, I'm glad someone with such a limited talent was able to get a job

loved Piper

by The Log Ladyreply 6611/11/2012

I wish this series would post to Netflix. Might kill a week for me but be worth it.

by The Log Ladyreply 6711/11/2012

Another David Duchovny connection: The actor who played the dancing dwarf was also in the X-Files episode Humbug, about circus sideshow performers

by The Log Ladyreply 6811/11/2012

Sherilyn and the cherry scene.

by The Log Ladyreply 6911/12/2012

It was a show that didn't stop in time.

by The Log Ladyreply 7011/12/2012

R67 doesn't know how to use the internet.

by The Log Ladyreply 7111/12/2012

Twin Peaks IS streaming on netflix, r67. I rewatched it a couple of months ago.

by The Log Ladyreply 7211/12/2012

I'm watching every episode again. Love it even more this time round.

Just watched episode 22 though, the one directed by Diane Keaton and it is the worst one in the series. Just as amateurishly done as when I saw it the first time it was shown. She went overboard adding kooky details and had no sense of pace.

by The Log Ladyreply 7311/14/2012


by The Log Ladyreply 7411/14/2012

So interesting that this thread was bumped up now. I was too young to have seen it during its initial run, but I bought the box set after hearing all the hype, and I finally broke it out during Sandy when I didn't have any cable. It's interesting, but I'm having trouble getting into it. I'm stuck around episode five.

Having said that, Piper Laurie really does play the best battleax in the business. I want to try and make it to the episodes where she plays an Asian man.

by The Log Ladyreply 7511/14/2012

This show is what brought the Pacific Northwest and its coffee culture to mass awareness. Then came "grunge.".

by The Log Ladyreply 7611/14/2012

I'm watching episode 23. Was Billy Zane wearing a toupee?

by The Log Ladyreply 7711/15/2012

I'm waiting to buy David Duchovny's cummed stained pantyhose, from his gig on Twin Peaks, on Ebay.

by The Log Ladyreply 7811/15/2012

I just finished watching the one that ends with Audrey in Cooper's bed.

by The Log Ladyreply 7911/15/2012

I've never been able to stand David Warner. Thankfully his appearance in the series was brief.

by The Log Ladyreply 8011/16/2012

Amazing that this ever got on the air at all. The early episodes were fascinating but in short time it appeared to have played all its cards too soon. Just became weird for the sake of being weird.

One of the most hardcore fans was my friend's Labrador retriever who sat in front of the set watching it intently.

by The Log Ladyreply 8111/16/2012

R80 Who is David Warner?

by The Log Ladyreply 8211/16/2012

Warner is a british actor and plays Josie's former lover Eckhardt in episode 22 and 23. I can't understand how anyone would want to cast him.

by The Log Ladyreply 8311/16/2012

[quote]I was thoroughly fascinated, though I was very annoyed when Joan Chen became a drawer knob on the nightstand.

I never understood what the fuck that was about.

by The Log Ladyreply 8411/16/2012

[quote]Here's the opening theme, "Falling," with the lyrics, not just the instrumental. Julee Cruise, who sings it, looks like Ellen Greene in "Little Shop of Horrors."

The most haunting theme song for a TV EVAH.

by The Log Ladyreply 8511/16/2012

2nd best series after Melrose Place.

by The Log Ladyreply 8611/16/2012

The casting of some of the minor characters was bad. The actor playing Harold Smith was the worst actor in the series, just awful. Heather Graham's no good either.

by The Log Ladyreply 8711/17/2012

Why didn't Sheryl Lee have a bigger career?

by The Log Ladyreply 8812/18/2012

Why did they replace Sheryl Lee as Mary Alice on "Desperate Housewives"? Have any of Sheryl's scenes in the pilot leaked out anywhere?

by The Log Ladyreply 8912/18/2012

Would anybody call TP a prime time soap opera, I know all the soap magazines covered the show and even David Lynch referred to his creation as a "mystery soap" and had no problem talking to the soap press.

by The Log Ladyreply 9012/19/2012

R88, because she's weird looking.

by The Log Ladyreply 9112/19/2012

I thought she was beautiful, R91.

by The Log Ladyreply 9212/19/2012

She's lizardlike.

by The Log Ladyreply 9312/19/2012

I'm watching the hot mess episodes in the end of season 2. Lara's hair was a complete mess in there, and Heather Graham cannot act.

by The Log Ladyreply 9401/02/2015

Can't fucking wait till season 3!!! Just love.

by The Log Ladyreply 9501/02/2015

I love that it is coming back! Sheryl Lee had the typcial prom queen blonde teenage good looks and Laura was such a tortured character. I think Lee did a great job in Fire Walk With Me, even though the movie as a whole was a mess. Something tells me Laura had a secret daughter who would be about 24 years old and that is how this new show is gonna start.

by The Log Ladyreply 9601/02/2015

The two beauties of the series: Kyle and Madchen.

by The Log Ladyreply 9701/04/2015

R56 and of course Peggy Lipton's daughter is Rashida Jones.

I looked up my childhood crush Dana Ashbrook who played Bobby and I feel he's aged too much in this time period but it may be just the hair. He was so beautiful on the show. Is he gay?

by The Log Ladyreply 9801/04/2015

Loved it at the beginning, but was completely disappointed in the later episodes. It was so different for television. Also, I love David Lynch's work.

by The Log Ladyreply 9901/04/2015

There was a sort of "derived" (copy cat) show about an IRS agent in Nevada that I really liked.

by The Log Ladyreply 10001/04/2015

Probably the best looking cast, male and female, of any show in the last 25 years.

The scene where Laura's cousin is beaten to death by her uncle is still hard to watch and more brutal than any R rated horror gorefest. I think the UK broadcasting version of the FCC freaked out after getting complaints about it.

by The Log Ladyreply 10101/04/2015

R100, are you thinking of Push, Nevada? I enjoyed that show, too. Surprised it didn't have more of a cult following.

by The Log Ladyreply 10201/04/2015

Anyone have dirt from BTS?

by The Log Ladyreply 10301/04/2015

When the music stops, and the old guy turns into the bald giant, and starts saying, "it is happening again, it is happening again" and we see Mr. Palmer with that terrifying grin in the mirror. Still creeps the shit out of me.

by The Log Ladyreply 10401/04/2015

Well, it is happening again... the first four hours this Sunday and then 14 more after that.

I'm excited.
