Kyle MacLachlan’s noticeably absent (or SHIELD-ed?) from this video by Madchen Amick, in which Twin Peaks cast members express how they feel about a version of the show without its auteur David Lynch, but most everyone else who signed back on is here, and more or less in character, giving you a taste of what the gang would look and sound like nowadays.
Will it be the only taste you ever get? I don’t know that a hashtag is going to be what makes a difference, as Showtime presumably greenlit the revival in the first place because they were aware of the demand, and I’m pretty sure they’re aware the eccentricities of Lynch are a huge part of why.
It’s cool to see everyone spouting semi-catchphrases again – if weird to see Sherilyn Fenn, who was a teen fantasy of mine, as a middle-aged mommy with her kid. But when it comes to a revival of the show, I hope we get more than just that.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
