“Twin Peaks”: Where It All Started?

The news that David Lynch and Mark Frost are reviving “Twin Peaks” brings a particular entertainment narrative full circle. We truly are back where we started. Well, almost: The show began life on a network (ABC) and is continuing it on cable (Showtime). Matt Zoller Seitz says: ‘The arty, boundary-breaking drama as we now know it wouldn’t exist without “Twin Peaks,” which ran two seasons (one and a half, really) from 1990 to 1991. The series is canon now. Everyone knows what it was, and is, and meant, even if they haven’t watched a frame. Everything from “The Sopranos” to “American Horror Story” owes it a debt. So it seems only fitting that it would finally reemerge on the medium that birthed it.’
