Twin Peaks Catch All

Could this whole thing about Lynch leaving the show be some bizarre PR stunt? Perhaps in reference to the constant pressure on Lynch from the studio during the original run?

I doubt it's a PR stunt, but I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't, to some extent, Lynch and the cast playing hardball with Showtime.

Oh, I'm sure it is. HarpoMarxist's anecdote wasn't the first time I've heard stories about how stingy Showtime can be with their money, I'd imagine creators have to play hardball with Showtime pretty regularly to get what they want/need.

It's back on!

"This damn fine cup of coffee from Mark and David tastes more delicious than ever," Showtime president David Nevins said in a statement Friday confirming the news. "Totally worth the extra brewing time and the cup is even bigger than we expected. David will direct the whole thing which will total more than the originally announced nine hours. Preproduction starts now!!”

YES! And it's been extended to 13 episodes instead of the originally-planned nine! I have a feeling that's what Lynch was holding out for.

Woohoo! You'll be able to subscribe to Showtime and watch it on Hulu without commercials for an extra $8.99 per month. That'll be cheaper than using Showtime's standalone app, and I like using Hulu fairly well. I'm totally down for doing that once Twin Peaks hits.

Good to know!

Hmmm... I wonder if all of the episodes will be available at once? lol

Only problem now is finding the movie. I think it was on Netflix at one point, but doesn't seem to be up there, anymore. Looks like the only option is Redbox Instant-- but who even has a subscription to that? I didn't realize until just now that Redbox even has a streaming service!

They do? Awesome. I just got some redbox rentals on McDonald's monopoly game and didn't know what to do with them. :)

lol just went to the website... Looks like you just missed your chance

I saw on CanIStream.it that Fire Walk With Me was only available through Redbox Instant Streaming, which I'd never looked into until just now. Sorry :(

In case anyone else has recently finished the series and wants to watch the movie, Fire Walk With Me has been added to several different streaming sites to rent/own at some point in the past 8 months.

The Idle Thumbs Twin Peaks Rewatch FWWM episode (as well as the one that follows it) is really great, and probably worth a listen right after you watch the film.

SO. MANY. FEELS!

Nice! Hadn't seen this! Thank you!!

WOW MAQ WOW

Woohoo!

My reaction, if I'm being honest with myself is:

WOOHOOWHOOOWOOHOOWHOOWHOOWHWOHOOO... JIM BELUSHI? NO. NO-NO-NO-NO... NO. NOOOOOOOOOO. No. No....... .... .... WOOHOOWOOOHOOWOOOWHOOOWOOHOO!!

From a FB friend:

I AM SO GODDAMN EXCI--
wait jim belushi?

I think that's the prevailing sentiment.

It could work. Maybe he plays an annoying character that gets killed off in spectacular fashion.

In his defense, Jim Belushi did play a good character in the HBO series "Show Me a Hero." It was an understated, small, but vital part.

Belushi's dressed in a suit that has me wondering if he's going to be the local law enforcement of a neighboring town or somebody that doesn't "get it" regarding TP weirdness in general? The straight-man, so to speak. "We don't take kindly to no (insert thing that happened.)"

My immediate reaction is revulsion, but I'm willing to give it a shot. Unfortunately, I don't have Showtime, and probably won't ever -- so I'm not sure when I'll see it.

More specific guess: Belushi will be playing the law enforcement that TOOK OVER in TP since Coop disappeared and Sheriff Truman retired. I'm guessing some of the same secondary characters are begrudgingly working for Belushi, but he's a prick. He'll be the non-believer. So we'll get a classic Coop drives back into town talking to Diane on his cellphone. He'll be wanting to investigate, and Belushi will be like "Nope. Get out of town."

You can tack on a subscription to Amazon Prime Instant or Hulu. I'm just planning on tacking on the subscription to Amazon Prime for the duration of the show. It's $8.99 a month.

Thanks for pointing that out... I did see that on Hulu. What would kick ass is if all the episodes were available at once so I could pretty much pay 8.99, binge this mofo like a whole cherry pie, and then cancel it. lol

There's a week-long trial, so theoretically you could do that for free once the season ends. You'd miss out on all the fun discussion while the show airs, though. I'd encourage you to just subscribe while the show airs, though. 8.99 a month is more than reasonable to pay for a show that airs each week. All these good shows cost lots of money to make.

Being forced to buy every episode at $5 an episode as it airs still feels a unreasonable to me (there still aren't rental options for TV shows), so I hope subscription options like this continue to be available.

Good to know, thank you! I hear you, even if the show is a train-wreck, it will still be fun to discuss.

It's not much, but I think this type of teaser is a good sign that they "get Twin Peaks."

5.21.17 is the day, apparently.

I'm super interested in seeing it... but I'm not sure I'm interested enough to have Showtime.

If you have Amazon Prime, you can get a fairly cheap monthly streaming sub for Showtime.

Or you could wait until all the eps have aired and watch them all during the free month Amazon gives you when you sub to one of the channels.

Thanks... LOL I just realized I already posted that about Showtime earlier, sorry. I just have so many little subscriptions of around 10 bucks a month going out the door. :-\ Ah well.

This past two weeks, I re-watched all of Twin Peaks and then Fire Walk with Me. I understand more of what was going on than when I first saw it (at age 10), but still it was pretty weird. So off to youtube for detailed analysis! I will be ready for when this comes out.

I can't watch Fire Walk With Me. Too scary.
