On May 17th 2017 Twin Peaks returned to TV, after a twenty five year layoff and it felt like maybe a week went by that we hadn’t seen it. I never thought we would ever see Twin Peaks back after the movie Twin Peaks : Fire Walk With Me , but David Lynch and Mark Frost brought it back but also opened up the world of Twin Peaks to a new generation.
Lynch and Frost could have just returned to the town of Twin Peaks, but instead they created a new world with awesome characters as The Mitchum Brothers , Dougie Jones and so much more. These characters had the traits of Twin Peaks as they were weird and wild and fit into the Lynch universe perfectly.
It was just great to see all the old characters again such as Hawk, Lucy , Deputy Andy and the new Sheriff Truman . It was sad to see the end come for The Log Lady, as she passed after her final call to her friend Hawk….Goodnight Margaret……
It was great to finally see the elusive Diane played by the awesome Laura Dern in a hysterical role. And seeing FBI agents Cole and Albert back for their final mission was both awesome and sad , as the great Miguel Ferrer passed after filming of the show.
I know this wasn’t the last time we will get a visit to the town of Twin Peaks, but who knows what Lynch and Frost have in mind for us and the people who populate that town. Welcome back Twin Peaks, and I hope it doesn’t take another twenty five years to see you again……….

I Am Sam Kinison is a feature-length documentary exploring the life and legacy of shock comic Sam Kinison, a former Pentecostal preacher turned stand-up comic who repurposed his pulpit-honed chops to the brazen rock ’n’ roll world of MTV-era comedy. Following a steep trajectory to fame, excess, despair and near-redemption, Sam died suddenly after he was struck by a drunk driver in 1992.

The Star Wars Holiday Special is a 1978 American musical science fiction television film set in the Star Wars galaxy. It stars the first film‘s main cast while introducing the character Boba Fett, who would appear in later films. It is one of the first official Star Wars spin-offs and was directed by Steve Binder.
In the storyline that ties the special together, Chewbacca and Han Solo visit Kashyyyk, Chewbacca’s home world, to celebrate Life Day. They are pursued by agents of the Galactic Empire, who are searching for members of the Rebel Alliance on the planet. The special introduces three members of Chewbacca’s family: his father Itchy, his wife Malla, and his son Lumpy, though these names were later explained to have been nicknames, their full names being Attichitcuk, Mallatobuck, and Lumpawarrump, respectively.
The program also features many other Star Wars characters, including Luke Skywalker, C-3PO, R2-D2, Darth Vader and Princess Leia(who sings the film’s “theme song”, set to the music of John Williams‘ Star Wars theme, near the end), all of them portrayed by the original actors. The program includes stock footage from Star Wars, and also features a cartoon produced by Toronto-based Nelvanathat officially introduces the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Scenes also take place in outer space and in spacecraft including the Millennium Falcon and an Imperial Star Destroyer. The variety-show segments and cartoon also take place in a few other locales, such as a Mos Eisley cantina on the desert planet of Tatooine and a newly introduced red ocean planet known as Panna.
The special is notorious for its extremely negative reception and has never been rebroadcast or officially released on home video. It has therefore become something of a cultural legend, because of the “underground” quality of its existence. It has been viewed and distributed in off-air recordings made from its original telecast by fans, which were later adapted to content-sharing websites via the Internet and bootleg copies.
The first instalment of the Star Wars film series was released in cinemas in the United States of America. The iconic space opera was written and directed by the American filmmaker George Lucas. His directional debut, the dystopian science fiction film THX 1138 was not received well by critics or filmgoers. However his second release, American Graffiti, was much more successful and was a key factor in securing financial support for Star Wars from 20th Century Fox President Alan Ladd, Jr. Lucas himself has often presented conflicting accounts of the film’s development, but what is clear is that it took him over three years to write the screenplay. Yet despite the significant time spent crafting both the script and the universe in which it was set, Lucas continued to rewrite the script while shooting. External scenes for the film were filmed in Tunisia, Guatemala and Death Valley while the internal shots were completed on sets based at the massive sound stages of Elstree and Shepperton Studios near London. Within a week of the start of filming, the production had already begun to run behind schedule, and Star Wars ended up going nearly a third over its original $8 million budget. Demand for the finished film from theatres was initially so low that 20th Century Fox forced them to show it in return for copies of the more eagerly anticipated The Other Side of Midnight. Despite this difficult start, when adjusted for inflation the science fiction epic went on to become the third highest-grossing film in the world. Star Wars was nominated for ten Academy Awards of which it won six, alongside a Special Achievement for Sound Effects Editing. However, the film’s impact on both popular culture and the development of cinema is immeasurable.
