Twin Peaks to Run on Showtime
In 2008 I opined that HBO should reprise Twin Peaks. Even better, Showtime has started to run ads saying that the show will run soon, presumably in 2017. The idea wasn't mine--I got it from Laura Palmer, whose Black Lodge spirit promised to Special Agent Dale Cooper that she'd see him again in 25 years. That was back in 1991, so she was off by but a year. Unfortunately, the show will run only as a limited series of nine episodes. My question is whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will replace Frank Silva as Killer Bob. Sadly, Silva, a stagehand whom David Lynch had discovered, died of complications of AIDS twenty years ago, in 1995. Either candidate can do a passable job.
