Those Owls, They're Still Not What They Seem

Literally just hours before I complained to Spencer about my desire to watch "Twin Peaks" through again, I stumble upon this post on Stale Popcorn, this Australian guy's movie blog that I've been frequenting lately. The post, titled "Who Killed Laura Palmer?" details news about the second season of "Twin Peaks" finally being released on DVD at the end of the year.

The first season box set came out three years ago. And for a set that only included seven episodes — and that's not even including the two-hour pilot, which was left off for legal reasons — they did the best job they could do with it. But the catch here is that I can't bother to share this with anybody because episode seven ends with a major cliffhanger, namely Coop being shot by a masked assailant in his hotel room at the Great Northern. That's not to mention the fact that it also drops off with Shelley being trapped a burning barn, Katherine being apparently incinerated by said fire, Nadine going suicidal and overdosing and all other manner of badness. Without the concluding episodes to follow up with, all us DVD-happy "Twin Peaks" fans were left with only a blue balls-inducing non-ending. And I was not about to make the trek back to Emerald Video to re-rent the VHS copies of it again. No, I remember what happened to my life the last time I did that.

Anyway, this is very good news. I suspect a "Twin Peaks" revival to soon come about. If not world-wide, then surely in my life.
