  1. Hot Take of the Week: The Roadhouse musical numbers ending each episode of the new Twin Peaks over credits are the evolution of the classic soap opera beauty shot.

  2. Never expected to see OLTL's Deanna butt naked in bed with a bewigged Kyle MacLachlan but here we are #twinpeaks2017

      Was he holding a folder?

      LMAO to DRW50. And her acting is still [!@#$%^&*], even under Lynch's direction. Thought he might be able to pull some sort of unnatural acting ability out of her, but alas, it was not meant to me.

  3. Twin Peaks leaked on Italy's Sky on Demand. Haven't spoiled myself much but it definitely sounds like a dark premiere in the vein of Lynch's later films, which no one can call a "nostalgia fest".

  4. I don't watch The Bachelorette but these bachelor bios are one wild ride http://www.vulture.com/2017/05/bachelorette-season-13-contestant-bios-biggest-red-flags.html

  5. I cannot describe how surreal it is having the biggest show of my life return from the dead this week and be at the center of a media frenzy in 2017.

      Her playing Cookie would have been laughable and it's not even remotely believable that she was offered that part. Perhaps she was offered a part of a woman who likes to eat a lot of cookies and got confused.

      Mo'nique and Janet Huber should just be locked in a room together where they can bitch to their hearts content.

      A interesting perspective on this. Some may find it provocative. #TeamMoNique

      For what it's worth each character in this piece is a problematic one, including Mo'nique.

       

  6. RIP Powers Boothe

      I saw this on Ryan Phillippe's instagram of all places. It's a coincidence that I'm in the middle of bingeing Deadwood right now. It'll be bittersweet watching the rest of the series. RIP

  7. New trailer for Series 2 of Jane Campion's Top of the Lake ("China Girl"), starring Elisabeth Moss, Nicole Kidman and Gwendoline Christie. If you haven't seen the first series, do it.

      Sundance aired the first series in the US. Does Netflix get Sundance shows after they air?

      They used to and may still, but TOTL S1 is no longer on there so who knows. IIRC Sundance airs it in September.

      Luckily I have Hulu. I keep meaning to get rid of it and they keep offering great content like "A Handmaid's Tale" to thwart me. So I'll check this show out.

  8. Great new overview (Part 1, anyway) of the Twin Peaks phenomenon in its thread.

  9. Really. 

     

  10. I'm gonna need more mint M&Ms for some of the madness in these monthly soap threads.

  11. Patton Oswalt memorializes wife and true crime author Michelle McNamara on the one-year anniversary of her death: https://www.facebook.com/pattonoswalt/posts/10154854467057655

      You feel his love for her even now. Did they ever say what her cause of death was?

    1. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      If you are fortunate enough to live over a century you may as well keep up with the times. She's old enough to have used telegrams all the way up to emails. Amazing.

      But I love her responses: "Haven't seen the show, don't think it's fair to depict people who aren't around anymore to defend themselves, can't recall the Oscar ceremony you're talking about."  All of which was a tactful and diplomatic way of saying, "Gurl, bye."

  12. I see Lauryn Hill has made her centennial appearance from the Void at Coachella.

      Even with all the years of...eccentricity, and her rushing through the song, Killing Me Softly still takes me back to a better place.

    2. Vee

      She is in Jawa cosplay but I think she does a nice job on Ready or Not. Not sure her voice is still there to handle the higher parts of Killing Me Softly w/o the backup vocalists:

      Well after six kids, tax drama, music industry drama and God-knows-what, she still sounds light years better than Mariah.

  13. The new Mystery Science Theater 3000 could not be more perfect.

    1. NothinButAttitude

      NothinButAttitude

      Then FOX is stupid for destroying their relationship with that family b/c ILC is a show that'd be greatly appreciated in this climate. 

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      I'm guessing that FOX thought they'd found their 'Magical Negro' in Lee Daniels but 'nope'.

    3. NothinButAttitude

      NothinButAttitude

      Well they betted on the wrong pony b/c Lee Daniels is a one-trick pony. I only still watch Empire b/c of Taraji. The second she leaves, this show is dead. I don't even watch Star after he said something along the line that America needed a story about a White girl from the ghetto to help it's current racial climate, but I digress... :rolleyes:

  14. Beautiful tribute to Carrie Fisher at this weekend's Star Wars Celebration:

      That was lovely.

       

  15. I remember some foul shít going down back when I watched Survivor but this latest news takes the door prize.

  16. Erin Gray (of all people) cameos in the first new episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 in 18 years. I've seen it all.

      ok.....I'll have to watch this. has it started already or is there a date when it will premiere?

    2. Vee

      Friday on Netflix.

  17. The British miniseries National Treasure (now streaming on Hulu), with Robbie Coltrane and Julie Walters, a kind of roman a clef of the Operation Yewtree case, is spellbinding. Check it out.

      I watched it a few weeks ago. That was some pretty engrossing TV. The ending confused me though.

      I saw that, too. Sweet Jesus, she puts even Vicky Rowell to shame.

      You're right...and that's no mean feat!!!

      Interesting she calls Alfonso an attention whore, yet she's the biggest attention whore, who continually harps by beating "a dead horse"

  18. Soooo, anybody wanna help hook me up with a new Twin Peaks sig from these EW pix?
