The first season of “Twin Peaks” was a Lynch/Frost collaboration. “Fire Walk With Me” was Lynch without Frost. The second season of “Twin Peaks” was Frost, after Lynch walked away–returning to direct the finale. We know what “Twin Peaks” with all Frost and no Lynch will look like, because that’s what we got in Season 2. Though “Fire…” was also not without its detractors, between the film and the second season of the show, I’d take the movie ten times over. However the genius of the first season, with both Lynch and Frost fully engaged, seems to be everyone’s idea of “Twin Peaks” apex. I suppose with Lynch theoretically having already written the scripts, it will be better than, say, JJ Abrams take on it, but with such a unique opportunity to do something wonderful–why **** it up Showtime?

22,000 Twin Peaks Fans Sign #SaveTwinPeaks Petition, But Showtime Needs More Convincing
by Twin Pie on Apr 13, 2015 • 4:48 PM • 20 Comments

The past 7 days, thousands of Twin Peaks fans on Twitter and Facebook have joined the original cast in conjuring up reasons why a new series of Twin Peaks wouldn’t be the same without David Lynch as its director. In response to David Lynch’s publicly announced departure, one hundred fans also recorded their “Twin Peaks without David Lynch is like [blank]” message and shared it using the #SaveTwinPeaks tag. Check out the gallery and if you want to support the cause, upload your own video message today because your voice counts! Instagram’s 15-seconds limit or even 6 seconds on Vine should do, but there’s also YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.
IMPORTANT: Word is Showtime is not convinced yet they need David Lynch on board for the entire ride, so sign the petition today and share!

And if -as a result of the bad news- you weren’t in the mood to add your signature to the petition on change.org, watching this beautiful #SaveTwinPeaks promo video by Mark Martucci from northern New Jersey will definitely help.

David Lynch taught me what movies could be.

His work showed me that film could be visceral, psychological, surreal and disturbing. He showed me that film could be black and white and devoid of logical plots. He gave me the awareness that films could leave images in my mind for weeks, months, years at a time (here’s to you, screeching mutant baby from Eraserhead!).

And then, not long after he helped me discover the limits of what cinema could be, Lynch stopped making movies. His last feature film was 2006’s Inland Empire. I haven’t seen Inland Empire; in 2006, I was still a few years away from discovering Blue Velvet and going on a tear that would define me as a movie-viewer to this day.

All of this is a long, winding way of explaining just why it was so utterly disappointing — and yet entirely predictable — to hear that Lynch was pulling out of Showtime’s rumored Twin Peaks relaunch due to a contract dispute.

The taste of fresh Lynch ­— his perverse ear for dialogue, his singular way of constructing an iconic shot out of nothing ­— was so close, but it wouldn’t be modern Lynch if it wasn’t pulled away.

There’s been a sense in recent years that Lynch is tired of filmmaking, which made the Twin Peaks news both exciting and utterly baffling. As much as I — and so many others — miss Lynch, he hasn’t shown any interest in making cinema (or television, or anything that would make auteur-philes salivate) for more than a few years. Why start now?

Instead, Lynch has spent the past several years on a series of bizarre art projects, some seemingly deeply personal, some totally inexplicable.

With a few notable exceptions (his stark, disorienting turn as a late-night TV guru on Louie springs to mind), these projects — though many are Lynchian to their core — haven’t been very good. Let’s look at them now.
The Cleveland Show

From 2010 to 2013, Lynch lent his dry vocal stylings to the role of Gus, the erstwhile bartender who lingered around the edges of this bleakly unfunny Family Guy spin-off. It’s not hard to see what drew Lynch to the part — like so much of his oeuvre, Gus was a weird, anachronistic juxtaposition of the macabre and the small-town idyll (this is giving Seth MacFarlane and company entirely too much credit, but just go along with it). He wore a vest and looked exactly like David Lynch, but he slung beer and palled around with 14-year-olds. He could unzip his skin and claimed to be 117 years old, and he was also the most boring character on a show full of truly dull cartoon men. His presence, however, didn’t manage to make The Cleveland Show watchable.

Dabbling in music

In 2011, Lynch unveiled Crazy Clown Time, an album that wasn’t so much a collection of songs as it was a swirling void of buzzes, tones and modulated vocals. It was nonsensical and nearly unlistenable. The Big Dream in 2013 was less shocking — its crazy, calculated incompetence was humdrum, more than anything. These records felt like a college senior messing around with Pro Tools to **** off his resident adviser. They were rough and unpleasant, but they weren’t truly Lynchian.

Silencio

Again in 2011, Lynch helped design and launch a nightclub in Paris. Its website bills it as “A PLACE FOR EXCHANGES AND ENCOUNTERS THAT CONSIDERS ITSELF THE SUCCESSOR TO SALONS” [sic]. A Yelp review calls it “dark, mysterious, and oh so chic,” which is disappointing, because that’s exactly what you’d expect from a David Lynch-designed nightclub in Paris. Shock us, Davey! Switch it up! Where were the musical saws? The severed clown heads dropping spontaneously from the rafters? The log just kind of sitting in the corner, minding its own business but forcing everybody to be like, “Hey, Pascal, what’s that log doing here?”

Or you could really shock us, Lynch, and make a new TV show or film. Stop the retired-dad dabbling act, drink a damn fine cup of coffee and get behind the camera. We all have more to learn.

Save Twin Peaks
Save Twin Peaks Twin Peaks, WA

Six months after the announcement of Showtime's Twin Peaks revival in October 2014, with a third season set to air in 2016, it has emerged that David Lynch is no longer involved with the project due to issues with contract negotiations, although the fated third season may still go ahead. Without Lynch, however, there is no Twin Peaks.

With the scripts already completed and actors and fans alike eager for this to go ahead with Lynch at the helm, we are urging Showtime to give David Lynch the contract he is after, or let HBO, Netflix or another network give the world what it wants and save Twin Peaks.

“Fifty-Fifty Chance” David Lynch Will Return As Twin Peaks Director, Dana Ashbrook Tells Belgian Fans

Three weeks after director David Lynch caused a storm with his public departure from the continuation on Showtime, it looks like the dark clouds over Twin Peaks are finally dissipating and blue skies could be emerging.

While several anonymous sources are optimistic, Dana Ashbrook was actually outspoken about the matter in front of a large crowd at last Sunday’s Antwerp Convention in Belgium. During a Q&A on stage, the actor told fans that negotiations for a David Lynch-directed series are back on, confirming Showtime’s repeated statements in e-mails and interviews. Things are looking way better than they did on Easter Sunday, he added, and there’s a fifty-fifty chance that David Lynch will return to direct the 9 new episodes. UPDATE: Dana said Mark Frost’s The Secret Lives of Twin Peaks book is completed, but its release is uncertain and depends on the ongoing negotiations with Showtime.

On a fun side note: Dana, who first learned from Sheryl Lee that he was going to be cast again, also mentioned that David Lynch asked him if he’d been practicing “walking backwards” lately, as we see Bobby Briggs do in the pilot and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.
“You've been practicing walking backwards?” —David Lynch to Dana Ashbrook #TwinPeaks2016

Add Dana’s report on the ongoing negotiations to recent yet vague and often metaphoric statements, like this “It’s still blurry but coming into focus” tweet by Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne) along with a recent photo of her and Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer), and you’d almost get your hopes up. Almost. But fifty-fifty is still far away from 100% so keep crossing your fingers until we hear from Mark Frost and/or David Lynch.
