To say that the show Twin Peaks has influenced my life would be an understatement. This show has influenced where I live today to why I love to say “wrapped in plastic”. I have even been to most of the locations where they shot the show. I’ve stayed at the Salish Lodge which is the exterior shots of the infamous Great Northern Hotel. Watching the show made me realize that the Pacific Northwest was where I wanted to live. It didn’t hurt that my future wife also lived here. She was the real reason I left St. Louis and drove to cleaner air.
When I heard David Lynch was bringing the show back I was ecstatic. Of course it did make me wonder if all this was planned beforehand since the show did have a few crucial scenes that took place 25 years later. Agent Dale Cooper has aged a lot better than in the show though.
I simply cannot wait for this show to come out. I’m glad that it’s on Showtime so there’ll be less issues with censors.
What I want more than anything else is to get some questions answered! I have so many:
- Is Audrey Horne alive?
- What happens to Shelley Johnson?
- What happens to everybody else?
I mean I want to know! But most importantly I want to know about Audrey and Shelley. Aside from Laura, Cooper, and Albert those two are my favorites.
I’m a little sad too that we won’t see Pete Martell in there since Jack Nance passed away. Actually quite a few folks passed away. Sadly, that’s what happens when 25 years pass by.
Are you as excited about the return of Twin Peaks? If not, why not? Okay I know it’s only a TV show but often I like to get so lost in a story, I can’t tell the difference between fiction and reality.
This is me, Dale, room 315 at the Great Northern hotel, signing off.
