Twin Peaks: The Return Review: Parts 14, 15, and 16

Part 14: “We Are Like the Dreamer” Heaps of reveal in this surreal saturated episode, although certain junctions are far from satisfactory. What works: David Bowie, once again,...

Twin Peaks: The Return Review: Parts 8, 9, and 10

Twin Peaks: The Return Review: Parts 3 and 4

If there was one thing that stood out in this week’s episodes, it was those regurgitation scenes. Ay, dios mio! More than once as Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) is passing...

Twin Peaks: The Return Review: Parts 1 and 2

Ahead of David Lynch’s revival, I went back and binged on the original series, interested to know if it would still capture me like it did 27 years ago. I was only a few years older than...

Twin Peaks Rewatch: Episode 8: The Last Evening

While Twin Peaks is a web of contradictions—combining as it does comedy and horror, “high” art and “low” art, pathos and irony—its central contradiction really...

Twin Peaks Rewatch: Episode 7: Realization Time

Let us now praise Audrey Horne. When we were first introduced to the pretty high school senior played by Sherilyn Fenn, she seemed to be perfectly in sync with the weirdness of her town: disengaged,...

Twin Peaks Rewatch: Episode 5: The One-Armed Man

It’s time to talk about Invitation to Love. Throughout the first four episodes of Twin Peaks, I’ve been seeing this cheesy soap opera in the background. At first, it was easy to dismiss...

Twin Peaks Rewatch: Episode 4: Rest in Pain

The trick of a show that continues one long, evolving storyline is to slowly—even teasingly—advance the main plot (Who Killed Laura Palmer?) while delivering enough episode-by-episode...

Twin Peaks Rewatch: Series Premiere: “Northwest Passage”

Thirty seconds into the show, and already I’m smiling. The theme music by Angelo Badalamenti is a slow, sugary mix of synth and strings that’s, well, goofy. Along with the green neon credits,...

Let’s Rewatch Twin Peaks for the First Time

How have I managed to go this long without seeing a series as heralded as Twin Peaks, a show that pretty much defines the notion of “cult television,” a show by one of the oft proclaimed...

Twin Peaks: The Return of Agent Cooper?

In the past week or so, there have been rampant rumors on various websites suggesting that cult classic Twin Peaks may be returning in some form. David Lynch has denied a much talked of potential...

The Show from Another Place: Twin Peaks and Grief

Since we’re wrapping up X-tober I wanted to take a look back at Twin Peaks, one of the biggest influences on The X-Files. The similarities between Twin Peaks and The X-Files are easy to spot....
