James Marshall, who plays wannabe bad boy James Hurley on Twin Peaks, finally had a chance to share his opinion on a debate that has consumed the show’s fandom for decades. Is Laura Palmer’s former beau cool?
It’s been both wonderful and depressing catching up with favorite Twin Peaks characters after 25 years. (Like, what the hell, Audrey?) But Twin Peaks: The Return has also introduced several new eccentrics who’ve quickly become memorable parts of the show’s ever-expanding landscape.
Twin Peaks: The Return, or Twin Peaks season three, or the greatest TV show of all time, whatever you prefer to call it, hasn’t been a ratings smash for Showtime. But it’s created a huge uptick in subscriptions, and the network is apparently open to doing more seasons—if David Lynch is, too.
One of the greatest love stories on the original Twin Peaks was the fiery passion between former high school sweethearts Big Ed (Everett McGill) and Norma (Peggy Lipton). Though they broke up and married other people, they continued to ardently pine for each other. Last night on Twin Peaks: The Return, we got an…
David Lynch did not attend the recent San Diego Comic-Con, but he was there in spirit—delivering maybe the single weirdest panel introduction in convention history. Would you expect any less from the wonderfully creative and twisted mind behind Twin Peaks? That was a damn good lamp!
Twin Peaks: The Return is visually stunning and thematically complex, with dozens of characters and plot lines inhabiting a world that’s slowly being invaded by a dark parallel dimension. “Slowly” is a key descriptor, but the show’s unique pace is a very deliberate choice made by David Lynch.
San Diego Comic-Con 2017 may be over, but io9's coverage lives on in our many, many posts, and we’ve collected them all here for you: movie and TV news and trailers, only-at-Comic-Con footage descriptions and experiences, amazing toys from the show floor, and so much more.
Quite obviously, the cast of what may be TV’s most spoiler-protected show ever wasn’t going to march out onto Comic-Con’s Hall H stage and start spilling secrets, especially in the absence of David Lynch. In fact, they couldn’t even if they wanted to—aside from perhaps MacLachlan, the actors are only allowed to read…
Uh... yeah. This does what it says on the tin—it’s an unknown video from some Japanese TV show or informercial, showing Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan creating a bento box that is ostensibly Twin Peaks-themed. I have my doubts. Also, this is weird as hell.
There have been eight episodes of Twin Peaks: The Return so far. With the show on holiday hiatus until July 9, now seems like the perfect time to reflect on the amazing, baffling, terrifying things we’ve seen so far, seemingly beamed directly from David Lynch’s astonishingly highly-caffeinated brain.
David Lynch is drawn to eccentric, unusual projects—like Showtime’s current return to his iconic Twin Peaks—because he is quite obviously an eccentric, unusual man. A recent interview with The Telegraph kicked off with one of the weirdest Lynch anecdotes we’ve ever heard. And that’s saying a lot.
We’ve only seen four of the 18 hours of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks: The Return, but we already have a lot of questions. A lot. Since half the fun of Twin Peaks is never fully understanding what’s going on at any given moment, we decided to round up everything that’s bedeviling us the most—realizing, of…
Did you watch all four hours of Twin Peaks: The Return that became available yesterday? Is your brain still rattling around in your skull like mine is? It was violent, it was completely bizarre, and there was a lot of coffee drinking. And most importantly, it was totally worth the 26-year wait.
The first season of Twin Peaks is almost perfect.
Sony might have a shortlist to play its first Valiant Comics hero. A former Game of Thrones star joins Amazon’s Philip K. Dick anthology. There’s a tiny chance Karl Urban could be part of the Judge Dredd TV show. Plus, trailers for Arrow and Flash’s season finales, and new Star Trek: Discovery pictures. Spoilers now!
May 21 is rapidly approaching, and while some things will certainly have changed in the spooky realm of Twin Peaks—including some new characters we’re seeing here for the first time—there are also some frozen-in-time moments, too. There’s Lucy, still holding down the desk at the sheriff’s department, and Shelley,…
One of the Hellboy reboot writers promises a darker take on the character. Get a look behind the scenes at Alien: Covenant. Phoebe Waller-Bridge talks about those Doctor Who rumors. Plus, hints for The Defenders’ big villain, the first look at the return of Cat Grant to Supergirl and a bizarre King Arthur clip. To me,…
Before you get too excited, this new Twin Peaks teaser is 30 seconds of enigmatic footage and 30 seconds reminding you to subscribe to Showtime ahead of the show’s May 21 debut. Still, considering we’ve seen barely anything from the cult hit’s long-awaited return, it’s still HUGE.
Wonder Woman gets another new TV spot. It looks like Robert Zemeckis is definitely not directing The Flash. One major character will not be a part of any show in the Arrow universe next season. Plus, new pictures from Valerian and The Dark Tower, another Stan Lee cameo, and a new teaser for Twin Peaks. To me, my…
