Leland Palmer/Killer BOB rises again!  Oh my!  Last week, The Young and the Restless Ray Wise (Ian Ward) got together with some of his former cast mates from David Lynch’s now iconic primetime soap/mystery television series, Twin Peaks!

In addition to the original episodes, the box set also includes more than an hour of unseen footage, including deleted scenes!

According to the report on Us Magazine’s website, making an appearance for the event along with Wise and David Lynch were other series stars: Miguel Ferrer, Sheryl Lee, Peggy Lipton, Mary Jo Deschanel, Russ Tamblyn, James Marshall, and Catherine E. Coulson.

Yes, Twin Peaks tv series was 1 of my favourite tv programmes to be ever shown on tv. My 2 favourite characters in it are FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper played by Actor Kyle MacLachlan,&also Sheriff Harry.S.Truman played by Canadian Actor Michael Ontkean.

I think a Twin peaks tv series fan Convention should be organised to take place in certain hotels in Scotland, such as cities such as Glasgow&Edinburgh, and also towns such as Greenock, Ayr,Largs, and also other towns too.

The first season was one of the creepiest, most disturbing things I had seen on television up to that point; it played by its own rules, did things that weren’t expected, and was everything but predictable. I’m not quite sure why it went downhill (I am guessing: network interference) but once they resolved the opening mystery, I lost interest pretty quickly.

I was in my mid teens when it was on air and I was scared of the show but could not stop watching. I would love if they did a remake or a novel tie in to tell us what the chatacters are up to now.

I adored this show….it was the most original and mind-baffling soapy ever!!!! You certainly never knew what was going to happen next….predictable it was not!!!! Everything about Twin Peaks was completely unexpected and here-to-then unseen on network television…it was definitely one of a kind! The coolest thing to come out of this program was the grassroots mail-in campaign to then-ABC honcho Bob Iger from the fans…people were posting him donuts, logs, cans of creamed corn, etc. with messages of support for David Lynch and his surreal creation’s renewal. (I sent him a book of Indian Headdress Stamps—appropiately re-entitled “Johnny Horne Stamps”—- with the plea “Don’t Stamp Out Twin Peaks!” printed inside! I also forwarded the longest letter of support I ever penned on behalf of a TV show to a network.) Alas, it all failed, but was truly great fun while it lasted. Still have the soundtrack somewhere….what a perfectly foreboding musical score Angelo Badalamenti created for this moody masterpiece.
