newsDid the Log Lady forsee this?  Twin Peaks is indeed coming back for a nine-episode third season, according to Variety:

“Twin Peaks,” the ABC series that was a forerunner of today’s offbeat serialized cable dramas, is coming back to life with nine new episodes to air on Showtime in 2016.

Sources say series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost are working away on the scripts, with Lynch planning to direct all nine episodes. Showtime declined to comment, but Lynch (pictured) and Frost confirmed the news via Twitter on Monday morning.

The episodes are expected to bow in early 2016, which would coincide with the 25th anniversary of the show’s demise after two seasons on ABC in 1990 and 1991. The new segs will be set in the present day and continue storylines established in the second season. Sources emphasize that the new episodes will not be a remake or a reboot but will reflect the passage of time since viewers last checked in with key characters.

Community season 5 review

c51As in real life, time and change go hand-in-hand with the quirky college show Community.   During season 4, Jeff and Pierce graduated from Greendale, new showrunners came in to take over the series, and the ratings continued to plummet.  The show was in a more precarious situation than it ever had been before, but those sorts of odds never disheartened the dysfunctional study group nor its internet legion of fans.

Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen – A Retrospective

maryI feel like there’s something most young American women around my age can relate to – when we were young, we all wanted to be one of the Olsen twins.  So here’s a quick rundown of notable Olsen shows and movies!

Full House - At 6 months old, the twins were double-cast as Michelle Tanner, sharing the role so as to comply with child labor laws. They were credited as “Mary-Kate Ashley Olsen” for the first 7 seasons. Over the show’s 8 season run, Michelle grew into a precocious troublemaker with a proclivity for shenanigans. While many fans of the show were endeared by her rascally ways, others saw her as obnoxious and were annoyed by the show shifting its main focus to her in the last few seasons.

Our First Video - As the title suggests, this straight-to-VHS movie was the twins’ first. To say more would follow would not just be an understatement, but a total disservice to the media empire the girls would eventually build. This particular video is a compilation of shenanigans in skit- and song-form, including “Brother for Sale” (the girls attempt to sell their older brother at the bargain price of 50 cents) and “Identical Twins” (a lie; they’re in fact fraternal twins.)

WEGAF Reviews: Supermouse – Daze of Yore

A little variety here, as we move from our usual territory of straightforward superheroics into that of funny animals – and superheroics. Enjoy!

On a different note, I must regretfully inform you that this will be the last episode of WEGAF Reviews for a while, as a host of pestiferous computer problems have forced me to abandon production until I get them fixed. I’ve posted a Vlog on my YouTube channel explaining the situation in a bit more detail, if any of you are interested.

In the meantime, I have some of my more usual fare waiting in the wings, which I shall post in the weeks to come. I hope you have been enjoying the show so far, and my apologies for the interruption – I’ll get it up and running again as soon as I can.
