The future was bright. "That episode was going to be the basis of our argument for whether we were going to come back or not".

"Twin Peaks" was the definition of a watercooler show, even if fans mostly gathered around coffee urns.

The show drew viewers in with a powerful story hook: Who killed Laura Palmer, the local It Girl? And along the way, he turned himself into something of an icon.

This is the David Lynch-directed TV movie that aired a year after the series finale.

That show was "Twin Peaks", and it was a thing. But TV was changed forever by the vision of its creative partners, David Lynch and Mark Frost. In the short-lived, but groundbreaking series, Amick played Shelly Johnson, a waitress at the Double R Diner. In an essay for the Guardian written in February, the Pakistani author Mohsin Hamid ties together various currents across the planet.

And even though this "Twin Peaks" has been billed as a limited series, MacLachlan said "I think the chances are good" when he was asked if more episodes might follow the first 18. The mystery that ensued set off an eerie chain of events that plunged the inhabitants of Twin Peaks into a darker examination of their very existence. Knowing what we know about David Lynch, anything is possible at this point. Over the past several decades, his vitality as a public figure - dare I use that ghastly word brand? - seems to be only marginally connected to the critical or financial success of his releases.

To put it another way: America needs David Lynch.

The group's cargo operations moved back into the black with a $S3m operating profit as freight carriage grew by 5.9 per cent. Revenue fell $S89m as cargo yield slid 10.7 per cent but expenditure fell a higher $S142m due mainly to lower fuel costs.

There is an argument to be made that attempts at this kind of dot-connecting are facile, or that efforts to get inside Lynch's head are both futile and unnecessary.

I have mixed feelings about "Twin Peaks". Whatever insight he imparts, Cooper wakes up convinced he knows who Laura's killer is. If you haven't watched it since 1991, you might forget just how badly it crashed and burned.

Lynch helps us understand the people and the forces that hold sway over us. I love the people in the world. The feature film prequel featuring David Bowie and Kiefer Sutherland as Federal Bureau of Investigation agents failed to capture the imagination, and Twin Peaks was dead.

But these figures are not external demons. "But nearly everything about it - from its surreal storytelling to its niche appeal to the little clues scattered along the way - has been absorbed and recast in what's known as the "peak TV" (as opposed to "'Peaks' TV") era. Could he just be a conduit for people to spiritually absolve themselves of their own murderous acts?

Letterman, however, appeared to identify the larger problem: "The truth of it is, if you stop and think about it, it might be the kind of show that would kind of have a limited run, and then would become a classic forever", he said. He is, in effect, the lead character's jealousy and rage made manifest. It was the mystery that kept viewers glued to their TVs for 17 episodes of some of the best television of all time. It's got to have a follow-through from the beginning to the end.

Lynch recognizes these dark impulses within himself: Take Wild at Heart (1990), with its relentless carnival of horrors, a film that functions not unlike a totemic spirit within his own oeuvre - a cruel vessel into which he's poured all his rage and violence. Wild at Heart, the devil on Lynch's shoulder, even has its opposite, angelic number: The Straight Story (1999), a picture of nearly limitless sweetness and light, and the only other road movie he's made.

The show had just two seasons but that's all it needed to develop a cult following. See the other cast members' defense of Lynch in the video below. It is also a way out.
