A death in "Twin Peaks"

Majorbriggs Actor Don S. Davis, best known for a recurring role in seven seasons of the sci-fi TV series Stargate SG-1, died June 29 after a heart attack.

To me, though, Davis was Major Garland Briggs, the Air Force officer from Twin Peaks whose son Bobby was always causing trouble in town.

Owl_2 Major Briggs, whose secretive work may have had something to do with Project Blue Book, was abducted by aliens during the show's second season. Upon his return, he uttered my all-time favorite line of Twin Peaks dialogue, which had been previously heard during a dream sequence: "The owls are not what they seem." This confirmed my long-held suspicion that owls are, in fact, extra-terrestrials, sent here to surreptitiously study the human race.

R.I.P., Mr. Davis.

can't fight this feeling anymore

Mr. Davis also played Captain William Scully...Dana Scully's father on The X-Files...only fitting he was on a show that owed a debt of gratitude to the fabulous Twin Peaks.


I am shocked -- shocked! -- that you did not somehow incorporate a picture of BOB into this post to terrify me. You're totally losing your edge, baby.
