Once the subject of mere speculation and fantasy, it's been announced that the much beloved TV series "Twin Peaks" will be returning to TV on Showtime in 2016. David Lynch and Mark Frost will still be at the helm, and it's rumored that Kyle McLaughlin will reprise his role as the lovably deadpan Dale Cooper. A few days ago, David Lynch tweeted this cryptic message to fans:

The internerds are all a flutter about a new rumor floating around that Mark Frost and David Lynch are in talks with NBC to revive the "Twin Peaks" series for a third season. Whether or not the rumors are true remain to be seen but if they are it sounds like Lynch is hoping most or all of the original cast will return and the series will pick after the same amount of time it's been since the show went off the air. I never watched the show so I really don't have anything funny to tack on here. Kyle MacLachlan looks like he wears women's underwear though.

If you've been waiting around with baited breath for the new A&E series "Bates Motel" well I have good news for your and your mouth. The show will finally hit the airwaves on March 18th for your viewing pleasure. I mean it's not great news. The series based on the Alfred Hitchcock's classic film "Psycho" is still a couple months away. And it won't be on till 10 pm. So you still have some waiting to do. I'm sorry I got your hopes up.

It sounds like NBC may not be done with a reboot of "The Munsters" series after all. Days after it was announced they would not be moving forward with Bryan Fuller's "Mockingbird Lane" the channels main man Bob Greenblatt came out saying they won't rule out do another show based on the series. He went on to say he likes the idea of a new show but "Mockingbird Lane" just didn't work. So kind of a big "it's not me it's you" to Fuller. He then returned all of Fuller's t-shirts that he had in his closet. And tore all the pictures of the two of them together in half. It was really ugly.

So "Texas Chainsaw 3D" brought the ruckas big time this weekend at the box office. The new sequel, retelling or whatever the hell you want to call it of Tobe Hooper's classic 1974 chainsaw romp took in $23 million this past weekend making it number 1, beating out "Django Unchained" and "The Hobbit" and pretty much guaranteeing we'll see sequel. Or a threequil. Or a prequel? I saw the flick and I honestly have no idea what to call it.

David Lynch. You either love him or hate him. Me, I love the dude. While I can't explain a single one of his movies, that doesn't stop me from thinking they're awesome. What is Dennis Hooper huffing in "Blue Velvet"? No idea. All I know is that Frank Booth might be one of my favorite screen villains ever and that I haven't been able to drink Heineken since seeing that movie. It also doesn't help that it tastes terrible, but that's another story entirely.
