Lynch has a fascination with the secret life of things which directors and artists often allude to but few have ever shown and shared this obsession with audiences as purely, effectively, and courageously as Lynch. Besides Blue Velvet, which I maintain is his true masterpiece, I believe this is his most consummate success of his unique vision.
After much consideration, I believe the town is called 'Twin Peaks' because every event occurring in one sub-plot is mirrored in some way in another sub-plot? I liked this show. But I can never ever watch television again; the way it is structured, leaving off cliff-hangers, continually slugging through plot progression, sometimes needlessly, attempting to get audiences addicted...
How refreshing to find a truly well-made television series! Typically Lynchian, this masterpiece draws on standard police dramas but with that added dimension of mysticism, surrealism and the subconscious. This series excels at raising questions about the very nature of life, from the banality of cheating boyfriends, all the way through to the dichotomy of good and evil.
Lynch's ultimate masterpiece. When you start watching Twin Peaks, you fall in love with the characters and the world in which it exists. It is a world abundant in beauty and bursting at its seams with surrealism, absurdism and mysticism. Dale Cooper, played consistently fantastically by Kyle Maclachlan is one of the most loveable characters ever devised, and Angelo Badalamenti's score amplifies its strange allure.
The pilot episode of "Twin Peaks" is part of television history. The whole show is. This image of Laura Palmer wrapped up in plastic and the photo of her crowned homecoming queen are unforgettable. You could feel all the ideas boiling up in the pilot and you knew that you were in for a good ride. After the revelation of Laura's killer the show failed to keep up the momentum, however it deserved a third season.
