Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me Is Even Weirder Than You Remember

The Twin Peaks TV show is remembered for being strange, but its real legacy is its influence. Even 24 years later, were inundated with crime dramas with supernatural themes, murder mysteries that take an entire season (or longer) to solve, and tales of small towns with deep, dark secrets. But Fire Walk With Me, the movie prequel to the series, is a very differentand very bizarrebeast.    Read More...     http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/io9/full/~3/meH7JzHZraM/twin-peaks-fire-walk-with-me-is-even-weirder-than-you-1753295205

Showtime Boss David Nevins on HBO and Netflix, the Lifespans of Homeland and The Affair, and Twin Peaks

During a year when so many returning series suffered serious audience erosion, Showtimes Homeland and The Affair wrapped their respective seasons Sunday in decidedly strong shape. Final numbers incorporating encore showings and delayed viewing wont be in for a few weeks, but early data suggests Homeland will at worst match its year-ago ratings, while The Affair may be that rare 2015 sophomore series which actually grew its audience. That means that while HBO's The Leftovers deservedly drew raves for its stellar second season, its Showtime rivals reached more viewers this fall (despite HBO being available in more homes). Vulture caught up with Showtime president (and soon-to-be CEO) David Nevins last week to talk about his Sunday successes, whats ahead in 2016 and how Showtime is evolving to meet the challenge from new streaming rivals such as Netflix. And yes, we also asked him how things were going on the Twin Peaks revival. (Spoiler: Its looking good.) Lets talk about Homeland , which will have aired its finale when this interview posts. It was definitely a positive season for the show, both in terms of ratings and buzz. The series seems more focused than its been, maybe a bit less of a soap opera and more of a tense thriller. How did you and the producers manage the transformation, if thats the word? After Brody, the last two years have really been about Alex and the writing staff committing to the idea of this show as a very real-world spy thriller, and trying to tell the story of Americas place in a very complicated world in the 21st century. The show has become much more researched-based. They take a two or three-week trip to Washington, D.C., in January and sit down with a ton of national-security people, CIA people some current, some former and hear what they're concerned about, what they see happening over the course of the next twelve months.

Truman, thesoft-spoken and unlucky-with-lovesheriff of the kooky Washington town, for the show's upcoming revival on Showtime.
