Twin Peaks Revival: A Guide to the Characters, Both New and Old

Won't lie- it felt pretty good to have this guy back in my life

Won't lie- it felt pretty good to have this guy back in my life

I was nine years old at the time, so a lot of it went way over my head. So I am going into the new stuff super pumped, definitely a fan.

"I'm working with ('West Side Story' co-star) Richard Beymer again", he says with a laugh. I think it's really harmful.

The coffee-loving Federal Bureau of Investigation agent has been stuck there since series two ended on a cliffhanger with Laura's murderer, the evil Bob, taking the form of Cooper's doppelgänger to cause deadly chaos in the real world.

If you watched last night's premiere, you probably noticed that, apart from the iconic main theme, this is a very different Badalamenti score than in the ABC series. These initial hours lack that entirely. Now, it seems that Cooper's doppelganger has grown long hair, favors leather jackets and a general depraved air, kills people without hesitation, and is up to no good.

Will the fans stick around and let him do this thing or drop him the minute the CGI wizardry of "Game of Thrones" returns? It also takes us, in the first four hours, to South Dakota, Philadelphia, Las Vegas and, most powerfully, to New York City, where a young man named Sam, played by Ben Rosenfield, has a very unusual job in a very secluded warehouse loft.

In a nutshell: it doesn't say if the revival is better or not. Coulson died in 2015, shortly after filming her scenes. If you recall, the series focused around the murder of Laura Palmer.

The lack of tech is in line with the original series, which also eschewed most mentions of technology, something that can't be said for most TV in the early 90's. Lacking that, most feel gratuitous. Its blend of humor, eeriness, wonderful characters, engaging stories, and euphoric music crafted a series that is timeless, one that will enchant viewers from now until eternity. Chances are, he's still there and will return to the small town.

"IT IS HAPPENING AGAIN", MacLachlan tweeted as it was about to begin. Unfortunately, much more screen time is spent on Evil Cooper and Bill Hastings (Matthew Lillard, Scooby-Doo, The Bridge), who are far less compelling. Which is to say: Twin Peaks is still very, very odd.

However, unlike seasons one and two, which limited the action to the confines of Twin Peaks and its environs, the scope of this new storyline is much broader.

Mr Hazel estimates he has since watched the show's first two seasons 20 to 30 times, first on VHS and then DVD. Immediately following, Episodes 3 and 4 will then be available on Showtime Anytime and Showtime On Demand, before airing the following week.

Guests and reporters at the Los Angeles premiere on Friday night were urged not to reveal any of the plot details of the first two episodes they saw.
