Check out these three videos on the cultural phenomenon that was Twin Peaks

Last Updated on July 31, 2021

I am working my way back through David Lynch's TWIN PEAKS like a motherf*cker. I have already rewatched the first season and around half of the second. I think I'm going to make it just in time for the premiere of the new season this coming Sunday, May 21st.

Before that airs though I'd suggest you check out these great videos about what a big deal the series was when it aired back in the day. If not as a fun refresher course for yourself, then share it with the person you love that isn't familiar with owls not being what they seem, before you get all wrapped up in the series again and they have no idea what's wrong with you.

Below you will find the rundown on not only the upcoming TWIN PEAKS revival series but also a rundown of the 3-part video series I mentioned above and a cool 30-day trial Showtime is offering for fans who want to catch the new season as it airs.

TWIN PEAKS: The Phenomenon 3-part video series rundown:

A three-part video series about the TWIN PEAKS phenomenon, featuring interviews with David Lynch, Kyle MacLachlan, and major producers inspired by the series including Damon Lindelof (Lost), Lesli Linka Glatter (HOMELAND), David Hollander (RAY DONOVAN) and more discussing the influence of the original series, each piece outlines the importance of TWIN PEAKS to the world of television and content creation. 

Showtime's new 30-day trial rundown:
