Started watching this because it’s been on my list for a while and the new season has been released… phenomenal TV show. I know this is a film account, but I must make an exception for a show with stunning sets, colors, actresses, and Kyle Maclachlan. I normally don’t get into shows but this has held my attention and me to the edge of my seat. I never want it to end, because nothing will ever be as good as watching this for the first time.
I’ll See You Again In 25 Years - My Visit To The “Twin Peaks” Set In 1990
I’ve unearthed these pics of me as a goofy 12-year-old visiting the set of “Twin Peaks” in 1990. My mom won a raffle at my LA elementary school where the prize was to visit the set - they were shooting the beginning of Season 2 at the time, and they had moved their location from the Pacific Northwest to sound stages in Burbank, CA, where they had re-created all of the iconic “Twin Peaks” locations. The most surreal thing was that often the sets were built side-by-side, so I was able to step directly from One Eyed Jacks into Benjamin Horne’s office into Laura Palmer’s living room. The locations seen here are: Harold the meals-on-wheels hermit’s house (with Donna, Maddy and Harold), me with Mike the One Armed Man, The Double R Diner, Laura Palmer’s living room, One Eyed Jacks, the sheriff department’s jail, the piano in Donna’s living room, Benjamin Horne’s desk, a booth at the Roadhouse, and Josie Packard’s living room. On the day I visited, they were shooting the scene of Harold scratching his face menacingly with the rake - it adds a bit of amusing context to know that while Harold was raking his face, this funny-lookin’ kid was watching from off-camera! - Michael Lucid
