His explanation is that he needs more money to do the scripts justice. The cast is backing him up on this.

Unlike the X-Files revival, I think this has a lot of potential. Frost and Lynch are a powerful team, the scripts are already written and Lynch's direction and on-set improvisation can work wonders. Inland Empire was excellent in my book.

I'm sure Scorsese would put out a shit album if he tried.
I'm just referring to what he directed his creativity to. And plus, the music video. Just seems like a guy out of ideas.

I'm not sure what about this show has ever demanded a huge budget. It worked within the constraints of what they had before. If he had a larger budget now, I'd say it's a guarantee the show jumped the shark.

He should take it to kickstarter.

Location shooting, huge cast and crew, a perfectionist director relying on improvisation and spontaniety (causing more shooting time), probably lots of effects... I'd say it's bound to be more expensive than the usual series.

Then it wouldn't be the same series and I'd be glad if it didn't happen

We have no idea how it would look like. Twin Peaks was hardly some kind of a low-budget show. However, every episode outside of the pilot was shot on set in LA, which significantly reduced the costs. Lynch and Frost insist on doing it on location, which is crucial in making the mood and the atmosphere as potent as it was in pilot and Fire Walk With Me. The pilot was actually pretty expensive for its time. And of course, one has to take inflation into account.

The Twin Peaks pilot has always been overrated. It's about the equivalent of having five orgasms at once, not six.

That's a relief.

Now throw this nonsense over money into oblivion by making a great set of episodes.

Lynch realized it may be his last chance for any relevancy.

I really, really doubt Lynch gives a shit about "relevancy".

He's not Bono..

and like Bono he's already achieved so much that he shouldn't worry about relevancy.

How has he not been relevant lately? Inland Empire and Mulholland Drive are both considered masterpieces in a lot of circles and his influence on the art world has only increased substantially over the years...

Just started rewatching this after literally not seeing a frame since its Australian TV airing 24 years ago. Mildly freaked out to recognise that the doc, and Laura Palmer's mother, both appeared together not very many years later as Susan's chronically inebriated parents on Seinfeld.
