'Twin Peaks' Resumes on Sunday

September 29, 1990|STEVE WEINSTEIN

Doughnut freaks and caffeine addicts rejoice, the crazy, mystifying story of "Twin Peaks" resumes Sunday at 9 p.m. on ABC (7)(3)(10)(42).

When we last left the woody town, the mill was on fire, Laura Palmer's killer was still on the loose, Agent Cooper (Kyle Mac Lachlan) had been shot and Audrey Horne (Sherilyn Fenn) was tied up in a brothel awaiting the ravages of her TV father played by Richard Beymer. David Lynch directed the two-hour season premiere, but the producers have warned that the answer to television's most asked question--Who killed Laura Palmer?--will not be revealed Sunday. "Twin Peaks moves to its regular time slot next Saturday at 10 p.m.

This weekend also marks the United Nation's World Summit for Children and both "Sunday Today," 7 a.m. (4)(36)(39), and "Sunday Morning," 8 a.m. (2)(8), will report on the conference, which will bring President Bush and at least 70 other world leaders to New York in hopes of ratifying a U.N. treaty on improving the lot of children all over the world.

And for those who missed out this week, KCET Channel 28 will repeat the entire series "The Civil War," Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. An announcement about the best way to videotape the series' nine episodes will be broadcast at the beginning of the day.
