Angelo Badalamenti's sweet theme begins as smokestacks billow, and a
robin assures the viewer of the presence of love in a little town
located through the pines, just this side of sanity...or reality.
Either way you choose to look at it (and the choice is yours), every
episode of this groundbreaking television show grabbed the viewer in
its seductive and destructive web... and wouldn't let go. "Twin Peaks"
began a string of weird television shows in the early 90's, but, unlike
those later shows, "Twin Peaks" would be beloved and remembered long
after it was off the air. "Twin Peaks" has earned a spot next to "The
Twilight Zone", "Night Gallery", and "Star Trek" in terms of pioneering
television and in terms of a cult following deserving of conventions
and fanzines. I believe that F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper is one of
the most enjoyable and inspiring characters in television history. His
simple passions and quirky behavior was a welcomed sight in our living
rooms every week during the shows very short run in the late 80's and
early 90's. "Twin Peaks" started out on fire, gaining exposure during
the pilot's multiple airings. The mystery of Laura Palmer's murderer
practically invented conversations at the water cooler. However, the
shows second season was scheduled to air on Saturday nights at 10:00,
an advertiser's no-man's land. And, with the shows fan base out on the
late weekend nights, the shows network decided to cancel it. David
Lynch, the shows co-creator, directed a theatrically released film
prequel to "Twin Peaks", showing all who missed the shows airings what
really happened to Laura the week of her death, and, finally, her
killer. As a huge fan of "Twin Peaks", I will tell you that the circle
of events that occur within the story enable the viewer to relive the
events over and over, each time around with more intensity than before.
When you view the movie prequel, diving right back into the series
becomes the natural path, allowing one to see things again for what
they really are... or aren't. I highly recommend owning the entire
series. Without a network messing up your viewing time, you can see the
mystery unfold at your own pace. Viewing "Twin Peaks-Fire Walk With
Me", along with the television pilot and the entire 29 episode series
(about 33 hours all together), is the most fascinating and satisfying
viewing experience that the entertainment industry has offered me so
far. The music, costumes, editing, acting, and direction all received
Emmy nominations, leading one to conclude that "Twin Peaks" not only
satisfied the public, but the critics as well. An incredible
achievement, "Twin Peaks" is my all-time favorite television show.
