Sneak Peek: Inside ‘Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery’ Footage!

July 17th, 2014 11:20am EDT
Twin Peaks
A few weeks ago I got a very large yellow envelope containing two cards with some very familiar images on one side (cup of coffee, slice of pie, blue rose!) and an invitation on the other. The event proposed was a rare exclusive treat for a David Lynch fan like myself – a chance to see the World Premiere Screening of The Missing Pieces which are a full 90 minutes of Deleted and Extended Scenes from the film "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" on the big screen. (And yes, considered to be the holy grail of "Twin Peaks" fandom!) As part of a lush new set hitting Blu-ray on July 29 titled "Twin...

David Lynch Barbie Coffee Commercial
Moviemaker David Lynch has posted a bizarre new ad for his Signature Cup Coffee online. In the strange commercial, the Twin Peaks and Mulholland Drive director talks to a Barbie doll head cradled in his hand about his organic brew.

In the three-minute short, the Barbie asks Lynch what he's drinking and he explains it's a cup of espresso from his Signature Cup range.

When the doll asks, "Is it good?" Lynch offers to fix her a cup.

The odd chat then turns a little romantic as the Barbie tells the filmmaker, "You're ki...

Fergie
Black Eyed Peas star Fergie is set to sex-up TV commercial breaks after filming a racy new advertisement for soft drinks brand Dr. Pepper.

The singer is the new face of Cherry Dr. Pepper and has shot a saucy new ad in which she recreates the tricky 'cherry stalk' stunt made famous by cult TV show "Twin Peaks."

In one scene, a vamped-up Fergie, sporting wavy dark brown locks, seductively holds a can of the fizzy pop in the air and pours it into her mouth.

In another clip, Fergie is seen playing with something in her mouth, before pulling out a cherry stem tied into a knot - mirroring the ...

Grassroots Campaign Wants 'Psych' Stars On 'SNL'

October 27th, 2010 10:35am EDT
Psych
If one show has impassioned, loyal fans to be reckoned with, it's "Psych."

They call themselves "Psych-Os," and in just a couple of weeks, nearly 30,000 of them have united in an online effort to nab leads James Roday and Dulé Hill a dual hosting gig on NBC's long-running, live sketch show.

The grassroots campaign appeared about a week before the official "Psych" Facebook page cracked the 1 million member milestone on October 20. Dubbed "Psych Out SNL," the movement's own Facebook group states that the writers of USA's quirkily funny police procedural have given the undertaking their o...

Funnyman Russell Brand and movie maverick David Lynch have become unlikely pals after the Twin Peaks director gave the Brit some tips on how meditation boosts pleasuring one's self.

"Psych" star James Roday and Executive Producer/Writer Steve Franks promise a "Twin Peaks"-inspired episode of the popular USA comedy. Starpulse just participated in a conference call with them, and they talked about the series' fifth season, which kicks off next week.

Finding The Right Halloween Costume And Ones To Avoid

October 13th, 2008 10:00am EDT
The Dark Knight
Picking the right Halloween costume can get tricky, especially when you're over the age of twelve. One thing that you need to be aware of in your selection is that there's a fine line

between having a good Halloween costume and making an ass of yourself. The same basic childhood rules still apply today: wear nothing that heavily restricts movement or vision, wear nothing that will burst into flames, and a homemade costume always trumps something store bought. Once you get the right idea, putting together a costume is easy. It's getting the idea that's the hard part. As Halloween sweeps i...

The Most Underrated & Overrated Influential TV Shows

August 22nd, 2008 9:28am EDT
Miami Vice
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and on television it often appears to be the only form of creativity. Yes, ever since Milton Berle first stole a joke for "Texaco Star Theatre", TV has been a wild west of borrowing material and copying good ideas until they've become completely stale. Many of these ideas were so good, in fact, that their resonance is still felt today, and that's when a show crosses over from being copied to being influential.

Over the years, many shows have been considered influential. From "The Dick Van Dyke Show" first showing both the home and office l...

Five Most Underrated & Overrated TV Shows At Comic-Con

Heroes
Two weeks ago, nerds, geeks, and those "just going to San Diego for the weekend to check out the beaches" poured into Comic-Con 2008 in all their "Babylon 5"-clad glory.

Comic-Con is an ever-evolving beast. It started as a few dozen collectors meeting in a basement in San Diego to trade and discuss comics. Now it is an event so massive it shuts down an entire city for the weekend.

Comic-Con also holds a tremendous amount of power nowadays. Nervous directors unveil scenes from their latest superhero big-screen opus to the attendees, well-aware that a lukewarm response could spe...

Our Favorite Fictional TV Towns

May 22nd, 2008 8:30am EDT
South Park
Many television series are based in real-life cities (Full House - San Francisco; Family Matters - Chicago; and Beverly Hills, 90210 - Beverly Hills). Even though several TV towns are fictional, TV fans can't help but wonder what it'd be like to live there.

Here's a look at some of our favorite fictional TV towns:

Stars Hollow, Connecticut (Gilmore Girls)

Stars Hollow, which was founded in 1779, is a small town in Connecticut that's home to some very eccentric characters. From Rory and Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham), to the grouchy Luke Danes and the always stranger Kirk, ther...

Hey, isn’t that...? You know, that guy. The guy that always plays someone in the military. He was in, uh, Syriana, The Kingdom... Oh yeah! He was the father of the emo kid in American Beauty!

The Most Underrated & Overrated TV Shows Of The 90s

May 2nd, 2008 9:43am EDT
Newsradio
The 1990s was the beginning of the end for network television. Program offerings grew rapidly in the last decade of the 20th century. Soon it became commonplace for a person to have 50-60 channels on their home set, paving the way for the present-day satellite and digital cable packages for 1,000 channels or more.

The 90s was the last decade that network bosses could depend on massive ratings from a nearly captive audience bereft of choices. There were certainly plenty of cable shows, but they barely made a dent in the numbers enjoyed by the networks at the time.

It was not unco...

Twin Peaks
After a week off for Oscar madness it's time to get back into the TV on DVD recommendations. This week I'd like to invite you to check out one of the strangest worlds ever created for television. The small town of Twin Peaks, Washington holds many small mysteries and one very large one that holds the town captive.

Five Top Show-Changing Moments: 'Lost,' 'Twin Peaks' & More

February 27th, 2008 12:00pm EST
Lost
Every so often, there comes a shocking or unexpected moment in a television series that leaves the show forever altered. These show-changing moments are not simply unique plot twists or ambitious story arcs; they are episodes or scenes that ultimately prove to be watershed moments for the series in which they occur. The impact of a show-changing moment on a series can be positive or negative - and sometimes a verdict can't be reached until long after the show has ended.

We have comprised a list of the top five such moments. The way in which each of these instances affected the five ...

Imagine this: through some temporal anomaly, rift in the space time continuum, or other such unique phenomenon, we are transported to an alternate reality. This new world is strikingly similar to our own, with one major exception. The television industry.

In this time-compressed universe, every show in the history of television is currently in production. All original actors/writers/producers are alive. Each show is exactly as it was in its prime, although the number of episodes in each show's original run is irrelevant.

In this brave new world, where every series is in ex...

A Lost Art: Top TV Opening Credit Sequences

January 11th, 2008 11:23am EST
The Cosby Show
The television opening credit sequence is truly an art form. Frankly, it is hard to believe that it has never been considered as a category for any of the major award shows. It should be. An excellent sequence can make a mediocre series good, a good series great, and a great series…well, you get the idea.

Okay, so maybe the above statement is a little bit of a stretch. Still, opening sequences can be pretty entertaining. They may be a dying art form these days, but that is all the more reason to celebrate the very pinnacle of achievement in the field. There have been many great ...

2007 TV Year In Review: Top 5 Dramas

December 28th, 2007 12:00pm EST
Sopranos
Due to the writers strike, many shows stayed on the air this fall even though their ratings were poor. The future doesn't look so good for programs such as Bionic Woman, Journeyman, and K-Ville. There are, however, several dramas that cemented their places in our "must see" lists.

Top 5 Dramas:

5. "Dexter" - While this show has never really delivered on the intimate look into a psychopath that it seemed to promise in its initial previews, it does remain one of the more entertaining pieces of pulp on television. This season saw Dexter's underwater burial ground discovered, causing...
