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?

Guiding Light’s Robert Newman Pays Tribute to the Brilliance of Lisa Brown

On Sunday, longtime Guiding Light mainstay, Robert Newman (Ex-Josh Lewis), shared a heartfelt message on his Facebook page on the death of his former co-star, Lisa Brown (Ex-Nola Reardon).

As previously reported, Brown passed away earlier this week at the age of 67 from cancer. She portrayed the beloved role of Nola on the CBS soap opera from 1980-1985 and was front and center in many stories which featured Nola’s antics, fantasies, and of course, her love affair with Quint, the late Michael Tylo.

In his message on Brown’s death, Robert Newman expressed: “I was greatly saddened to hear of the sudden death of the great Lisa Brown. When I first joined the show in 1981, Lisa was pretty much the center of everything. A real whirlwind. Her work with the late Michael Tylo was fantastic. I particularly have fond memories of Nola’s fantasies …Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, etc. I don’t think I was ever a part of those fantasies, but I remember watching them being taped in the studio and she was just amazing.”

Newman goes on to say: “One of my fondest Lisa memories, however, was sitting in the audience at the Winter Garden Theater in NYC watching Lisa head up the cast of 42nd Street with Lee Roy Reams in 1981 or so. It was one of those times when you see a colleague that you know from one genre, Daytime Drama, in an entirely different genre, Musical Comedy, and you are completely surprised and blown away. Again, she was just fantastic in the role and I as a fellow musical comedy performer, I had great, great respect for her. Below is a clip from a television performance of her as Peggy in 42nd Street. Her death at such a young age is a great loss to the daytime community. Love and prayers to her family and friends.”

Michael Fairman TV also shares below the video posted by Robert below, which reminds us of just how multi-talented Lisa was for her fans, the audience, and to all that knew her. On a personal note: “Lisa always performed at the ‘Night of the Daytime Stars’ benefit for AMFAR in New York City during the AIDS pandemic that I created and produced.  It was the annual event held the night before the Daytime Emmys, and she was always willing to lend her support and talents to help others in need.”

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.
