Wow. My family were really into that. It was big ... 23 years ago. Longer than the gap between Star Trek TOS and NG.

I figured it had to be coming, what with the success of the new Fargo series, along with Hannibal and Bates Motel.

I'm looking forward Rear Window - The Series, in which Jeff Jefferies observes more illicit goings on amongst his neighbours.

Y'know, I hear a lot about Twin Peaks. Often by people losing their shit whenever that zig-zag carpet gets used in some other work as an homage.

Some day I really need to actually watch some of it.

The carpet pattern I see referenced most is still the one from The Shining

In fact, googleing both independently, The first image result for "Twin Peaks carpet" is this, where as "The Shining carpet" nets mostly itself.

If you want to watch some, it's only two seasons and a movie.

I recommend makeup artist Rick Baker for the role of BOB, since Frank Silva passed away.

Shurely that should be updated to, "One day my Blog will have something to say about this?"

I'm still waiting on a sequel to 'Blue Velvet'.

It's on Netflix, so enjoy. I missed it the first time around as I was in Japan then. Finally bothered to watch it this year. First season was short, second season was much longer. They solved the first mystery and then launched into a whole new thing.

I have to say, had I seen it when it first came out, I might have tried to seek out the writers and make them pay for that ending. Even now I consider dark rituals to raise them from Hell just so I can send them back slowly.

I remember well the show was quite a sensation early in the first season as most viewers thought is was just some kind of off-beat murder mystery and the big buzz was 'who killed Laura Palmer?'. Of course, being a David Lynch product, that was never the actual point, there was never any actual point. It was just another of his meandering surrealist indulgences and the average TV viewer quickly got confused and lost interest. That ending was with the expectation that the show would get at least another season, which of course was an even wilder delusion than the backwards-talking dancing midget.
Still, I enjoyed the show for what it was and would certainly be interested in seeing this new version.
Also, 'Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me' remains one of Lynch's most underrated films. Even without the context of the TV show it's one hell of a disturbing, creepy horror film.

Well, Palmer did say to Cooper,
"I'll see you again in twenty five years."
or was it,
"Sraey evif ytnewt ni niaga uoy ees ll'i."

The flavor text on this always reminded me of Lynch's work.

I really doubt that, but I'll be watching anyway.
