'Twin Peaks' cast creates video in support of David Lynch

The cast of 'Twin Peaks' recorded a video describing what the series is like without David Lynch.

David Lynch has left the planned "Twin Peaks" continuation on Showtime, leaving that project's fate uncertain. But the residents of that weird little mountain town -- or at least the people who play them -- aren't taking the situation lying down.

Several members of the cast have contributed to a two-minute YouTube video in support of the show's departed co-creator and director. Each of them tries to describe what "Twin Peaks" without David Lynch would be like.

Though Kyle MacLachlan is not in the video, it does feature appearances by cast members Sheryl Lee, Sherilyn Fenn, Dana Ashbrook, James Marshall, Peggy Lipton, Madchen Amick, Kimmy Robertson, Al Strobel and Wendy Robie, with her Nadine Hurley eye patch.

So what is "Twin Peaks" without David Lynch like?

It's like a girl without a secret, a dog without a bark, eyes without brows, a waitress without her uniform or pies without cherries.

Basically, without him, the series does not have it's heart and soul.

Lynch announced on Twitter on Sunday that he was leaving the planned "Twin Peaks" revival after a dispute over how much money Showtime was willing to devote to the project.

Showtime then released a statement of its own expressing hope that a deal could still be reached with Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost.

If the series does get canceled over this, then the short video is probably our best chance to kind of imagine what that reunion would have looked like.
