“Twin Peaks is resolutely horror-oriented in its underlying premise, but some weeks it is indeed more soap than nightmare, more pointed satire than suspense. Still, when Twin Peaks decides that horror is its primary component for the week, the program manages to be more terrifying, more frightening in its implications, than just about any program in television history. Simply put, it is a masterpiece of TV drama, and one of the greatest modern horror programs [of the last twenty years]. The threat of the Black Lodge, and the presence of a maniacal killer from the other world, named Bob of all things, assures that Twin Peaks is never far removed from a terrifying place… a place where reason and goodness cannot compete with an unfathomable evil.” - “Terror Television: American Series, 1970-1999″
I just realized something today. You know how we always rant about
the (old, too old) age of the actors playing Harry Potter’s parents in the movies?
Snape, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin were (more or less) 31 years old
when Harry started to attend Hogwarts.
in the movies, they were interpreted by a 55 year old (Alan
Rickman), a 43 year old (Gary Oldman) and a 38 year old (David
Thewlis) respectively. (These are the ages they were when
the first movie was released.)
you know Ben Barnes, who is often fancasted as teenage
Sirius Black? He is 35 years old, only a year younger than Sirius
was when he died. So Ben Barnes is in fact a good fancast for
old Sirius! And Andrew Garfield, who is often fancasted
as teenage Remus? 33. Yep. You get my point here.
