I never heard of a soap Twin Peaks..
I do know Twin Peaks in CA, been there several times..
just this; remakes are never ever as good as the original– knowing that I will not subscribe to Showtime to watch it..
I had Showtime, once.. it really was not all that good- I let it go..

old fans, enjoy !

Im an old fan of the original and will not be watching the remake-like you said they are never as good as the original…

Yes, jimh, “original recipe” Twin Peaks was phenomenal….so unexpected and outre’ when it hit the scene….I cannot imagine how it could possibly outdo itself, especially in today’s “seen it all, done it all” age! In addition, the show simply won’t be the same without Pete Martell and his “fish in the percolator!” (Which still makes me roar with laughter….that was my favorite Peaks’ catch phrase/sight gag of all time! We repeated it at school for kicks, ad nauseam……always with great relish and delight!)

In Su…It’s wasn’t a traditional daytime soap, but like a lot of nighttime drama series has all the elements of a soap. But Su…this one has just that kind of weirdness and “action” that I think you would like, having read your comments for several years. And the characters…Ray Wise is phenomenal. Hope you find a way to see the original series. I’m not so sure about a reboot either…time will tell.

This is not a reboot- this is a continuation of the series that ran in primetime in the early 90s. There were two seasons originally so it’s easiest to think of this as “season three”. (There’s also a movie that was released theatrically called “Fire, Walk With Me” which should be watched after season two rather than before season one). A ‘reboot’ would be if they started from scratch with different actors (i.e. the 2004 Battlestar Galactica series) which is not what they are doing. “Season three” features some of the same cast (some have passed away since then.. like… Read more »

And they say the cast of GH is too bloated! Lol…such a quirky show. Wonder if they can recapture its magic. They should do a recap of the past…

Cast is insane, greatt! So happy about Ducovney. Brilliant man, actor!

Rebecca 1…I also like David D in the X-Files, just another “quirky show.” Then there’s Laura Dern and Richard a Chamberlain. What will they do with him?

Hi Rose! Funny but I never watched the X-Files. I started watching the original a few months ago. I wasn’t hooked yet it had such a following back in the day maybe I’ll give it another shot. But I liked Duchovney in other things I’ve seen him in and ADORED him in CALIFORNICATION! I binged all the seasons of that show several months ago and was hooked from beginning to end. Yes to Laura Dern and Richard Chamberlain and so many others in the cast. (And I barely remember the original Twin Peaks other than its quirky “universe”.) But then… Read more »

After a little thought.. If they released this list it’s a stunt.. I’m sure it’s authentic but they’ve included EVERYBODY… Jane Smith: floor sweeper.. Some woman in a scene who looks up… John Gray: coffee server.. don’t speak just pour the coffee… Nicias Moore: park bench.. the camera just passes by… I mean ROOTS the slavery miniseries is set to air Memorial Day and that full cast is well under 200.. including uncredited actors… Yep.. Twin Peaks.. and they’re being just as weird as ever with that unnecessary huge cast.. I’ll watch

217 cast members and still the list seems to be incomplete… Where are Piper Laurie and Joan Chen? Twin Peaks won’t be the same without Catherine Martell and I was hoping Josie Packard would somehow make an appearance. No Eric Da Re? Dang it, I loves me some Leo Johnson. Annie Blackburn was key to the events in the Black Lodge in the series finale so it seems odd not to see Heather Graham on the list. And no Lara Flynn Boyle suggests there will be no real payoff to that cliffhanger reveal in the Hayward living room (which is… Read more »

A little surprised they would release this, as scanning the list and noting key absences just invites people to conclude this is going to be disappointing. I have to agree about not seeing Piper Laurie and Joan Chen among the names (Piper may, like Michael Ontkean, be retired from acting, I guess, but I thought Joan was still acting). What about James Marshall, Everett McGill, Wendy Robie, and Kimmy Robertson?

Nonetheless, I will probably still watch.

It looks like the bottom part of the cast list might have gotten cut off — the full cast list on numerous other sites lists James Marshall, Everett McGill, Wendy Robie, and Kimmie Robertson as well as Ray Wise (Leland Palmer) and Grace Zabriskie (Sarah Palmer).

Oh yes–Grace Zabriskie! She’s another one I would have felt cheated if I didn’t see.

Thanks for the info, Alan. The omissions certainly seemed strange.

But still no word on Joan Chen or Piper Laurie?

GH’s Carolyn Hennesy Addresses Why She Was Not a Part of Nancy Lee Grahn’s ‘Alexis-Centric’ 25th Anniversary Episode

For the past several weeks, savvy General Hospital fans were wondering why on earth was Alexis’ best friend, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy), was not a part of Nancy Lee Grahn’s (Alexis) 25th anniversary episode of the ABC daytime drama series, which centered around Alexis saying goodbye to those near and dear before she goes to Pentonville to serve a prison sentence.

After all, Diane and Alexis have been through so much together, that it seemed like a glaring omission. Was Hennesy not asked back for the episode?  The answer came in the form of Hennesy herself via in a response to a fan’s tweet on her being MIA from the episode.

As it turns out, the ever-busy Hennesy was shooting a film in Atlanta and was not available at the time of the tape date of Grahn’s special episode.

 

Carolyn tweeted: “Not their fault, my dear. I was off filming on Atlanta!!! Cuz you know Diane wouldn’t have missed it!”  That came in response to this: “Watched the big @NancyLeeGrahn ep of #GH and I’m perplexed that there was no Diane! @carolynhennesy One of the most fun TV female friendships and she wasn’t there to send her off? Come on you guys @GeneralHospital”

Mystery solved! Carolyn would have gladly been at the GH set that day in a heartbeat, if she could have.

So, happy to know that GH did not forget about Diane for the Alexis-Centric episode, but had to work around it? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
