    Not sure if even "Agent Cooper" can recapture the magic of Twin Peaks. Even if you get original cast members, the fact that they will come across 20 years older will not feel as comfortable as it was when it was first running on TV. I wish it went to a third season, but it certainly was falling fast in the second season. Well at least they aren't talking about a "re-boot."

    I don't know about webisodes, but think bringing back Twin Peaks for a belated third season could work. After all, if you remember, Agent Cooper had a recurring dream of himself in the white/black lodge as a much older man.

    it won't work without lynch. he should know that. lynch becoming disinterested is why the second season went down in flames. i mean, that little adoptee they thought was cursed, the miss twin peaks pageant? pretty silly compared to the first season and maybe first third of the second season. the last episode brought it back to where it belonged, but only because lynch returned.

    If Lynch becoming disinterested was the reason for it's downfall, then logically speaking with the right people behind it, a new Twin Peaks would work BETTER without him.

    Lynch was absent from much of the series... Mark Frost was the true constant, BTS.

    GOOD POINTS HERE DUSK LEGEND AND MAYBRICK LEGEND.

    I have alot of respect for David Lynch, but TWIN PEAKS for me is about, not just lynch, mark Frost as menstioned,
    but the MUSIC!


    Here's a review I found I agree with
    http://www.amazon.com/Twin-Peaks-Season-One-Soundtrack/dp/B000002LMM

    I think David Lynch is very important, but if has no desire, and someone else has, then perhaps you go with the man with desire to do it, and if that's Dale Cooper, it's not bad, because the foundations of his character, are very hard to ignore, it's Lynch all over him, as much as the music and david frost.

    For Twin Peak fans, ever craving for something new, this is exciting, from Dale Cooper himself, if it's popular enough, who knows, maybe a new series, you can dream!!

    The funny thing is that a show like this would thrive on the TV these days. It was wayyyyy ahead of its time back then and paved the way for other quirky shows dealing with strange happenings and the occult like The X-Files. What would be neat to see would be a show that takes place in the same continuity, just twenty years later. Keep some of the old characters, but mostly have a new cast. They could be their kids, new residents, etc. Basically it would be keeping with that twisted soap opera feel they were going for with the original. Still, I'm interested to see if this actually happens.

    i dont follow that? logically, if the show was only good when he was involved and interested (my hypothesis, obviously arguable), then how would it be good without him?

    i am pretty sure this will never happen, but i wouldnt mind seeing audrey again...

    David Lynch was always involved with Twin Peaks. He may not have written or directed every single episode exactly (because that's impossible the way TV shows are made), but he was always there behind the scenes giving the orders. But let's say he was completely disinterested in working on the show. How could Lynch help but be a drag on the show creatively?

    ...Nope, still doesn't past the sniff test. If a show faultered because of creative disterest, then it does not follow that it would do better because of it.

    Lynch is simply impossible to replace. Now you could make a good show without him, of course, but it wouldn't be the same. That's the main point.

    I never said it would be the same, but obviously neither of you guys understand what I'm saying because it should be pretty common sense. Simply put (or simpler put): People who are interested in a project will do a better job than somebody who isn't. Ergo: if Lynch isn't interested, then put someone in charge who is and it's bound to be better than some guy with name recognition who only shows up for the check. For instance, look at MOTHER OF TEARS. Beforehand, there wasn't a person among us who would've thought that a good sequel could be made without Argento. But looking at the end result and his apparent indifference to the material, and I'm sure that there's a far higher percentage of us out there thinking that perhaps it would've been better had he handed the reigns over to somebody else.

    I'm not saying that I'm not interested but, as Maybrick pointed out, David Lynch was always involved with Twin Peaks. So if there's no David Lynch it's not really Twin Peaks.

    That's kind of like saying without Gene Roddenberry it isn't Star Trek. Or without Jim Henson there are no Muppets. There are plenty of instances where a movie franchise or tv series has survived, and even thrived, without their creator's involvement.

    Firstly, comparing Twin Peaks to a franchise like Star Trek is like comparing apples and oranges. But seeing how I'm not a fan of any of the post-Roddenberry stuff anyways I could agree that without Roddenberry it isn't Star Trek.

    And the Muppets?! What the hell have they accomplished since Jim Henson died? I have to admit though, I haven't been following them in recent years....

    When a creator dies or leaves of his own volition it'll never be the same. But then, a show that insists upon staying the same quickly becomes repetitive and boring and would inevitably be cancelled. It can be risky, but change is often for the best.

    Who knows if this will even happen or would it be any good? Nevertheless I'm eager to see it the end result. It would be ideal if MacLachlan could get participation from Badalamenti or anyone from the Twin Peaks cast.

    I've always hoped it would return in some way.

    I'd be interested in seeing this, I'm a huge Twin Peaks fan and was so glad when they finally had the whole schbang all on one boxed set finally(I was glad to sell off the VHS set I bought a year or two before). And while I think Lynch's involvement would be great, I don't think its a necessity, and I think Mark Frost had a lot to do with it as well, having one or both of them on board and some other actors from the original show would certainly be a plus though.

    they should do 1 episode, see how it fits and what the reactions are, and then continue if it's good and let it rest if it sucks
