Back in the early ‘90s, a little show called Twin Peaks hit the airwaves. The series was notable for a few reasons: The first was its slow, meditative pacing, the second for its strange atmosphere, and the third for its even stranger characters. It would only go on for 30 episodes (two seasons), and a feature film entitled Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, but it would become a cult hit.
If you’ve never had a chance to check out the show, I’d recommend it highly. There’s a good chance you may not enjoy it — the show is one of the strangest out there — but it’s so strange that it’s actually worth it. Well, soon enough, Showtime subscribers will get that chance.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Showtime will begin streaming the first two seasons of the cult hit show on their streaming service on December 26, 2016. This gives viewers plenty of time to catch up on the show in advance of the revival’s 2017 airdate — a date we don’t quite know yet.
If you have to have Showtime, I highly recommend you sit down with a damn good cup of coffee and run through this entire show. As stated above, while you may not fully like the show, it’s still one that’s worth watching based on its quirky nature alone.
