I hope so. I'm seeing him perform in Virginia in August.

I just bought tickets to see him at Wolf Trap too. What a coincidence!

Small teaser just aired on Showtime. Red Room pull out shot with "MAY 21ST" in the background.

I have a screenshot of it but the file size is too large for some reason. Sorry.

Hard to say. Could be the pull back shot from FWWM in reverse. But they shoehorned it into an ad for Homeland. Very out of place.

The minimalist promotion continues.
This is - excuse me - a damn fine cup of coffee.

I think perhaps having just been spoiled by some recent crime shows, but, the mystery solving in Twin Peaks feels, for lack of a better word, very light. As a poster above said, Cooper is mostly a passenger to finding the solution (which I think in turn makes some of the revelations a bit cheap, given that a lot of it comes down to very literal deus ex machinas). I think it might be nice to have any detective work feel a bit more intensive (the pilot episode gets closer to a vibe that works). Mind you, the original series was made in the 90s, without the internet and binge watching, so, I imagine by design it was a bit on the simple side. I like the mystical clues and stuff, but, I think they should've only really been employed in kicking off threads of the investigation, rather than being used to solve it (like the great rock throwing scene, it's suggestive, but, it doesn't really answer anything)

Come to think of it, does Coop actually do anything to discover that Leland is actually the murderer (beyond the mystical clues)? I'm sure there was something about some fur on some item in Ben Hornes' office, but, I think that might've been what led him to initially pinning it on Ben.

While I hope they'll push it even further in the opposite direction, of events too far beyond human grasp! I love the puzzled cops in Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive. They can't solve THAT. It subverts the comforting nature of the procedural.
The old show's attitude toward its investigation is, imho, very fitting considering that the mystery was never meant to be solved. The fact that Coop doesn't accomplish anything except attuning himself to Laura's message also reflects this.

Cooper's modus operandi is exactly the same as Lynch's so I wouldn't want it any other way :) it may be the total antithesis of real police procedure but it is what this show is all about: hunt the ideas with intuition and only later try to use logic to solve the mysterious answers. In real life the rate of Gordon Cole's solved blue rose cases would be pretty damn low :)

Yeah I can't think of anything I want TP to be less than a naturalistic police procedural. Seriously?
