The quirky cult classic series followed the investigation into the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer in the rural town of Twin Peaks, Washington, and it was headed by the iconic suit-wearing FBI Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan). As the shocking investigation wears on, dark secrets soon begin to emerge from the seemingly idyllic image of small-town normalcy. Laura Palmer was anything but the virginal high school-girl she appeared to be on the surface, and deep, dark secrets lurked in her family’s home every night.
David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” was the perfect setting for the story. Sleepy Upstate Washington, where it drizzles constantly and it has a dreamy feel to it. Down to the soundtrack, this series was utter perfection and David’s creative partner Mark Frost was able to deliver some of the best dialogue of any TV series of its time. Now with the series returning to Showtime, a premium cable network, this iconic duo will have no limits on creative writing and art. One is almost giddy with anticipation, and yet we are well over a years before it airs and months before production.
So, how will it work out in the 21ST Century? Following so many great series on premium cable, with Showtime’s “Dexter,” “Nurse Jackie,” “The Tudors,” and HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” “True Blood” and “The Sopranos?” Something tells me things are going to be just great. As great as Norma’s “DamnGoodCoffee.
