He had seen advertisements for the show promoting it as a detective series, and he thought it might be a bit like Murder She Wrote. Dr. Jacoby (Russ Tamblyn), still rocking his 3-D spectacles, now living in a trailer in the forest, received a delivery of shovels to either dig something up or bury something. We hate him because he's loathsome, we hate him for not being the Cooper we want him to be, and we hate him because Lynch has decided to make MacLachlan wear Nicholas Cage-in-Con Air hair. Ben and Jerry Horne (Richard Beymer and David Patrick Kelly) talked chicks, the latter looking like a deranged mini-Santa Claus.
More (mild) spoiler alerts: You can also watch the new opening credit sequence for the show, that uses Angelo Badalamenti's famous theme music but ditches the iconic shots of the sawmill and birds for something very different...but cool. D'Addario added that "the show, which derived its power from the aftermath of trauma in a small community, has chosen to tell a story that's odder and bigger-so big, in fact, that it has so far choked off what made Twin Peaks work all along".
These two parts don't introduce us to all the characters, either. Thankfully, anyone can sign up for a free 30-day trial of Showtime's a la carte service and watch the first two episodes as soon as they begin airing tonight. Here in the heartland of Twin Peaks Nation, this abominable man in black sows and reaps a pulpy-corny crop of pain and sorrow, mostly by manipulating and murdering women. Maybe he was possessed by a BOB-like demon? The question is whether the result will be worth spending 18 hours to puzzle out.
This may sound like we're complaining. As long as you own at least one of the devices listed above, you'll be able to stream the new season of Twin Peaks. We love that this "Twin Peaks" will be making life hell for TV recappers, who will spend every Sunday trying to explain events that make absolutely no sense.More news: Will hear only triple talaq case, says apex court
BOB was the embodiment of evil within the show. Lawson said there was lot in there to satisfy die-hard fans and also keep people who appreciate visual and musical style but "that the uncommitted may feel The Arm twitching towards the off switch at Lynch's storytelling style".
The rebirth of one of the most culturally influential television programs of all time, and the deafening roar of its accompanying marketing, could seem at first glance to be the by-product of a supremely cynical business with few new ideas.
The band shared an image of themselves with Lynch on Facebook (below), with a simple caption: 'Thank you David.' Their new album Dear Tommy is expected to appear later this year, having been delayed after the band's Johnny Jewel suffered a near death experience in Hawaii. Which, in retrospect, we definitely should have. We couldn't be happier.
