I realize now that I have literally waited the majority of my life for this.

http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/10/06/twin- ... ark-frost/

All 9 episodes written by Mark Frost and David Lynch. All 9 episodes directed by Lynch. Boom. Dream come true.

While I am a little leery of this airing on Showtime (Fire Walk With Me's hardcore R rating was the most polarizing thing about it) I don't really trust a broadcast network to air it either. Even if the show is no better than Fire Walk With Me (which was underrated) I'll take it. I NEED to know what happened to Coop and the Black Lodge! Now!

I'm a little torn if they should set up another murder mystery. While that was Twin Peaks' entire hook, I know for a fact David Lynch regretted revealing who killed Laura Palmer. If they DO have another murder mystery, and Lynch has this much sway, they will never solve it.

Either way, I can't wait.

I honestly don't know if I care about this or not at this point.

Yes, I loved the series. And I know that I look back it with the most utter fondness. But I have serious doubts that this particular lightning will strike twice, especially after all this time.

Okay, at about the 3:40 mark in the above video, Laura says to Dale "I'll see you again in 25 years."

2016 will be about ... 25 years since she said that.

Spooky.

I'm going to go hide under my bed now.

Seriously, if Lynch and Frost had this planned right from the get-go, they deserve all the credit in the world.

I love Twin Peaks. What a great, great show that was.

I don't really care if it's good or not. Both Season 2 and Fire Walk With Me were underwhelming. I just want to know what happened next. I am NOT one of those people who believes everything they watch needs to be as great as Breaking Bad. Because having the standards that everything needs to be lightning in a bottle means I can never enjoy the majority of television. I'm not saying I have low standards. But I have realistic ones.

Let's not get crazy. Planning has never been Lynch's strong suit, especially where Twin Peaks was concerned.

This is literally the scariest scene I have ever seen broadcast for television. Nothing since, not on American Horror Story, not on Game Of Thrones, has appalled me more. The fact that it aired on ABC, the network with the strictest censor standards in 1990 is a miracle. It was SO highly anticipated that I'm betting that's why they were allowed to do it. It was a "just this once" deal.

Do you know the most amazing thing about it? How relatively little gore there is in it. The situation is plenty horrifying on its own. Twin Peaks was a VERY special series.

"Through the darkness of future's past, the magician longs to see. One chants out between two worlds... "Fire... walk with me." We lived among the people. I think you say, convenience store. We lived above it. I mean it like it is... like it sounds. I too have been touched by the devilish one. Tattoo on the left shoulder... Oh, but when I saw the face of God, I was changed. I took the entire arm off.

My name ... is Mike.

His name ... is Bob."

"Mike? ... Mike? Can you hear me?

Catch you with my death bag. You may think I've gone insane.

But I promise I will kill again."

Dude hacked off his own arm so he wouldn't help Bob kill anymore.

Scary. Image
