In April, 1990, the television series Twin Peaks premiered on ABC television and my life got a little better after that. I never intended to get hooked on this strangest of strange teevee shows but I did.
Half supernatural and half soap opera, it was unsettling yet campy—and who did kill Laura Palmer, the homecoming queen? That’s why FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper came to Twin Peaks. His mission was to find out.
In the second season of Twin Peaks, the mystery was solved—kind of (I’m not going to say what happened here as some are still catching up to the show)—and after that, many viewers lost interest. I never did. The show got even stranger and even darker. I was loving every minute of it, but then my heart got broken. The show was cancelled.
But now, there is some talk of a reboot of the show. Rumors are all over the internet that creator David Lynch is in talks with NBC to bring Twin Peaks back. Will it happen? The word now is that the rumor is a lie but I don’t know. When it comes to Hollywood, sometimes lies turn into the truth.
You’ve figured out by now if this turns out to be fact, I’ll be waiting with bated breath for the return of his bizarre show. And will Agent Cooper still like coffee? I’m thinking that’s probably a given.
