Dear David Lynch: Please make a Gordon and Albert Blue Rose spin-off series

Despite it being frustrating and hard going at times, I’m greatly enjoying the third series of Twin Peaks, David Lynch’s cross-dimensional crime drama, which finishes with a two-part finale on Monday 4th September. Throughout the 16 parts so far, we’ve caught up with old favourites, found out how they’ve been created, met new characters and…

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E16/18), Tuesday 29th August, Sky Atlantic

This third series has been a sometimes thrilling, sometimes viscerally terrifying and sometimes infuriating journey. Throughout 15 episodes we’ve waited and waited until Agent Dale Cooper – our beloved FBI man – snapped out of his fugue and take back the identity that had been locked away for so long. No question about it: we’ve…

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E13&14/18), Monday 7th and 14th August, Sky Atlantic

Any long-time viewers of Twin Peaks will have been at once beguiled, terrified and intrigued, as well as frustrated, by this extraordinary third series. We’ve been waiting patiently through all the errant, seemingly innocuous and scattered scenes and new characters, hoping that Good Coop is finally revived from his catatonic state and that Bad Coop…

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E12/18), Tuesday 1st August, Sky Atlantic

After this 12th part of series three of Twin Peaks, there are only six episodes left, and there’s still a huge amount to tie up – if David Lynch is indeed in the mood to tie things up at all. Who knows what’s going to happen? Will the Dougie Jones/Good Coop issue be resolved –…

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E9/18), Tuesday 11th July, Sky Atlantic

How to follow part eight? That was the question heading into the ninth instalment of this remarkable series. It has had a week off – something I had forgotten about – which was probably a good thing after the sublimely extraordinary¬†shenanigans of that episode. It was the episode where Lynch and Frost presented us with…

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E8/19), Tuesday 27th June, Sky Atlantic

The first thing to say about this episode is, “wow”. The second thing to say about this episode is, “wah?” It was that kind of episode. Again. Constantly throughout this third series of Twin Peaks, you think you kind-of-maybe-sort-of-know what’s happening and can perhaps kind-of-maybe-sort-of-predict what might happen. But then all your assumptions are ripped…

New Twin Peaks trailer is most revealing yet

Anyone¬†who reads this site knows how excited I am for the return of Twin Peaks in just over a week’s time. Growing up it was one of the shows that changed my outlook on the world, and was the first TV series that I became gripped and obsessed with. Yes, my excitement is tempered by…

Showtime and Sky Atlantic confirms Twin Peaks transmission date

If you read our Quite Large Crime Drama Preview For 2017 (here if you haven’t), one of the things that included was the return of Twin Peaks, David Lynch’s era-defining crime show that crossed dimensions and introduced us to myriad much-remembered characters. So we all know it’s back this year, but until this moment didn’t…

Has Twin Peaks plot been revealed?

It’s always fun to speculate how a new series or movie will take shape, and in the case of Twin Peaks – that cultiest of cult shows – the rumour machine is just starting to crank into gear. At the end of it all I think someone should write something about the whole process of…

David Bowie was expected to appear in the new Twin Peaks

A few weeks ago we detailed the enormous, 200-plus cast list for the new series of Twin Peaks, which is due to hit our screen on Sky Atlantic in the UK some time next year. We can’t wait, not only to see how the story progresses but also how David Lynch is going to fit…
