Feedback: “Twin Peaks”

Considering plans for a relaunch of “Twin Peaks” on Showtime in 2016, one of our writers last week postulated that “a careful reading of the script for ‘Twin Peaks’ clearly places the fictional town in Eastern Washington, way Eastern Washington, north of Spokane and hard against Idaho.” We asked our Facebook friends whether they agreed, disagreed or couldn’t care less. Here’s what they said:

Ed Renouard

Given the creator’s familiarity with the area (Lynch lived here), I’d say it’s spot on.

Shawn Harkins

Or Snoqualmie Falls. Cause that’s where it’s really at.

Emily Smith Gardner

Ronette crossed state lines, Agent Cooper crossed to Canada, therefore Northeast Washington!

Dave Arambarri-Somers

I always thought it was a little like Colville.

John Morrow

Harley Peyton was one of the lead writers of the show. He was born and raised in Spokane.

Jennifer Plumb

Could not care less.

Carolyn Hannas

Well it makes a lot better sense than the horrible “Grey’s Anatomy” plot line a couple weeks ago about the guy lost for 30 days in the Eastern Washington desert while hiking to 9 Mile with his family.

Lynn McCarthy

David Lynch went to South Junior High and Borah High School in Boise, Idaho. Check the school records.

Chris Melsha

But it was filmed in the 425.

Alex Smart

North Bend, WA

Karen Drobny


Laurie Jackson

David Lynch was semi-obsessed with the weirdness that is Spokane and NE WA so I believe this.

Barbara Peregoy

Wallace-Kellogg area

Rich Sweeney

Don’t really care
