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 E10/18), Tuesday 17th July, Sky Atlantic

We’re now into the second half of this series – or 18 hour-long movie as David Lynch would have us approach it – and we’re still none the wiser when it comes to the fate of Dougie Jones/Good Coop. In this 10th episode, there were diversions, some unsettling scenes (in a more subtle way than…

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E6/18), Tuesday 13th June, Sky Atlantic

Five weeks in and we were no closer to a resolution to the fate of Good Coop – Agent Dale Cooper – returned from The Black Lodge, and living back in the conscious world as Dougie Jones, still struggling to grasp basic social, movement and speech skills. To begin with, his predicament was high comedy,…

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E5/18), Tuesday

I have to say that this fifth episode was my least favourite of the series so far. The previous four episodes had been a stupefying mix of nightmarish surrealism and high farce – Good Coop had battled to escape The Black Lodge, but when he emerged Lynch and Frost gave us something entirely unexpected: he…

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E3&4/18), Tuesday 30th May, Sky Atlantic

After last week’s incredible, dark, unpredictable start to the much-anticipated third series of Twin Peaks, there was no telling where things¬†might go in episode three. Those first two episodes featured everything from two Dale Coopers – one in the conscious world reeking havoc and killing people, the other (the one we know and loved from…

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E1&2/18), Tuesday 23rd May, Sky Atlantic

It has been a long time since 1990 – 27 years, maths fans – and since those heady days, when Twin Peaks took over the world for a short while, we’ve had all kinds of dramas on television that have elevated the medium to new heights. Just think, we’ve had The Wire, The Sopranos, Sex…

Twin Peaks drops new trailer

It’s getting closer. The much-hyped and much-anticipated (at least in this house) ‘revival’ series is set to drop on US cable network on 21st May, with a UK premiere on Tuesday 23rd May on Sky Atlantic. Now we have our first trailer of any significance, although the 49 seconds doesn’t give too much away. What…

Sky Atlantic releases two new Twin Peaks teasers

Up until now all the cryptic promotional material for the new, upcoming Twin Peaks has been from the US and its new network home, Showtime. But now Twin Peaks’ UK broadcaster, Sky Atlantic, is getting in on the act with its own promo campaign, a campaign that has seen two new teaser trailers released in…

Twin Peaks cast teases new Twin Peaks series

One of the big things coming next year is the new series of Twin Peaks, David Lynch’s inter-dimensional crime story with damn fine coffee and pie. We’ve charted its rocky path to production – it’s quite story in itself. Now the filming is just about wrapped up, we’re starting to get the first pieces 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…

Sky Atlantic secures Twin Peaks for UK transmission

The new series of Twin Peaks is one of the most hotly anticipated TV events¬†in crime drama land – well it is in this house – even though it won’t appear on screens until 2017. However, with everything now hunky dory between David Lynch and its US home, Showtime, and with production continuing apace, attention…
