The works of filmmaker David Lynch are often mysterious, so it makes sense that he’s not going to be overly straightforward in discussing Showtime’s TWIN PEAKS. The beloved cult hit series, about a murder in a strange little rural Northwestern town, ran for two seasons on ABC, 1990 and 1991. Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost have now brought forth a twenty-five-years-later return as a limited run for Showtime, with Lynch directing all eighteen episodes. Many of the original cast members, including Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee, Kimmy Robertson, Russ Tamblyn, Madchen Amick and Joan Chen, are back, joined by some new-to-TWIN […]Read On »

Looking out the office window, one can see the entire casino floor, which looks exactly like what it’s meant to be – an opulent Las Vegas casino circa 1960 – rather than a set on a soundstage in Santa Clarita,California. In fact, outside the casino doorway is a replica of the Vegas strip of the era, complete with period cars. On VEGAS, which has its first-season finale on CBS, Friday May 10 at 9 PM, Chiklis’ Savino has been […]Read On »
