Remembering Carrie Fisher

There is a hole in the hearts of all “Star Wars” fans after the world lost Carrie Fisher yesterday, Dec. 27, 2016. After a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles, she was hospitalized a few days, and then she was gone. Not only known as our beloved Princess Leia, Fisher was loved for her memorable roles in “The Blues Brothers” and “When Harry Met Sally,” and was a witty and brilliant writer also known for her novel “Postcards from the Edge” and her one-woman show “Wishful Drinking,” and so much more brilliance. Fisher had finished her filming on “Star Wars” episode eight due out December 2017, and there will not be a dry eye in the theater once the credits role. She will be painfully missed.

Fans remember Carrie Fisher:

  • Janet Rose: Candor and wit
  • Kim Folkins: Grace. Strength. Confidence. Warrior. General!
  • Several fans stated that they will remember her “Cinnamon buns.”
  • Giles Panton: Speaking out in support of mental health. Unsung hero.
  • Karla Katt: The Princess with a gun! Kicking ass and taking names.
  • @Ringlady: “Blues Brothers.” Her character reading how to make a bazooka while doing her nails.
  • Barb Hallworth: Rebel (in every sense of the word.)


George Lucas on “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow?”

Yes indeed. A young George Lucas will appear as a character on “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.” CW’s time-travel superhero show will feature a storyline involving Lucas as a future filmmaker in the midseason premiere. Jan. 24, 2017. Matt Angel of “Grimm” and “Sweet /Vicious,” will play the role of the iconic director. According to Entertainment Weekly, the title of the episode will be called “Raiders of the Lost Art” and will center on a Los Angeles film crew who is in danger of losing one of its own. The young Lucas has decided to drop out of film school therefore never making “Star Wars” or “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” The show’s executive producer Marc Guggenheim says it will be a zany romp, which will fit in with the fun comic book stories that the series has been tackling this season.

Twin Peaks” news

Here’s what we know about the return of “Twin Peaks.” This Golden Globe winning series is due out on Showtime this spring, 2017. The creators are Mark Frost and David Lynch and yes, Lynch will be back in the director’s chair. Yes, Kyle MacLachlan will be back as FBI Agent Dale Cooper, along with a ton of familiar names such as Dana Ashbrook, Sheryl Lee, Everett McGill, Kimmy Robertson, Russ Tamblyn, Ray Wise, and Grace Zabriskie. As a matter of fact, the majority of the original cast will be back with the exceptions of Michael Ontkean, Piper Laurie, Joan Chen, and Michael Anderson.

Twenty-five years later the story continues. Apparently Dale Cooper has vanished, and the FBI has come across a box of documents all related to the town of Twin Peaks. A female FBI agent will try to analyze it all. Many of the characters, alive and dead, are on the cast. Laura Palmer’s back, as well as Leland Palmer, and some others. Not sure how that is going to play out. Some of the questions that people want answered are:

  • How is Annie Blackburn after being rescued from the red drapes?
  • Was Coop really possessed?
  • Will “BOB” and Mike come back in new bodies?
  • What ever happened to Donna Hayward?
  • Is Audrey Horne dead?

No doubt Showtime’s subscriptions will be going up this spring to find out the answers.
