Piper Laurie is still going strong after a zillion years in the business, and wants back in to Twin Peaks.

Piper wants to come back as Catherine. Niiiiice! smile.png I'd like to see that. Even though that woman puts the fear of God in me. (I've watched Carrie way too many times.)

Well. I'm up to Season 2 episode 11. Leland's dead....Bob's gone into another host (I've already been spoiled on that. Poor Dale. sad.png ) and Lucy is torn between her baby's daddy being Andy or Dick. Love love love this show. Also. David Duchovny in drag is hysterical. He doesn't make a pretty woman.

Also. Some a-hole checked out Fire Walk With Me at the library. And, I have no idea whether it'll be back on Friday so I can rent it or not. Damn. :(

That Grantland article was an interesting read. I agree with a lot of it about the show's impact. Repeatedly saying there is no need for Bobby (or Shelly) - well if you could leave comments, I would have left a very long one.

You don't technically "need" anyone but Cooper and Laura, but if you want to tell Laura's story, Bobby was a vital part of that. And he was a fascinating character in his own right. And it's such a stupid reason not to bring him back. "Some characters peak in high school." That's part of the point. If he's a broken failure now, show us.

That's a real shame. That was an amazing season-ending cliffhanger & a great shock.

I can't wait to actually see it.

I still wonder how they are gonna fit that in if Kyle MacLaughlin comes back (and I really believe he will)

It would not be Twin Peaks without Cooper. It just wouldn't.

On the good side, you can use Bob to headcanon the way late season 2 wrote Dale as such an !@#$%^&*].

Can you, though? I thought the possession occurred following Dale's foray into the red room. Am I forgetting something?

I'm not up to that part yet. Haven't seen Dale being an a-hole.

Or, his possession by Bob.

Damn, I cannot wait till tonight/tomorrow morning. Sucks only having one DVD player in the house. LMAO.

Only 3 more discs to go though. Woooooooo!

You're probably right. I decided to do it anyway. ph34r.png

I'm such an odd person, because most fans watched Twin Peaks for Dale. I liked Dale, especially the first season and a half, but as time passed I was watching practically in spite of him.

I don't think Cooper was an !@#$%^&*]. He and Laura were the central axis of the show - he had so much of Lynch in him. In the age of today's relentlessly kooky male heroes, it's easy to look at him now and attempt to dissect him as we would some of those self-satisfied characters and see something else behind their behavior, but Cooper wasn't any of those. He isn't built like that. He had past demons, but overall he just was what he was and he had no guile about him, much like David Lynch himself. I didn't care for the Annie love story so much, but I never stopped loving Cooper. I love all the characters (okay, except James and Donna), but I think Cooper and Sheryl Lee (regardless of who she plays) are easily the two things the show would really need to come back.

Oh I won't argue that Dale shouldn't return. He's vital to the show, to Lynch's vision. I just hated most of what he became - I thought he became patronizing and creepy and also very generic.

I'm sure he wouldn't be that way now.

The great Richard Beymer reacts to the news.

"I'm pleased about it," Beymer said Monday. "I get to go at it again."

The "Twin Peaks" return had been in the works for a while. But the 76-year-old actor received confirmation from Lynch himself -- with a phone call rather than a tweet.

"David called me last week when it was official," Beymer said.
