4/8/1990 America visits Twin Peaks
As you probably know it tells the story of the death of small town high school student Laura Palmer, as investigated by FBI agent Dale Cooper.
Sounds simple, no? But this is a murder mystery as created by the eccentric director David Lynch and his partner Mark Frost. So along the way we meet a woman who carries a log everywhere, a giant and a midget in identical clothes, a woman who turns into a cabinet knob, a white horse in the middle of a living room, and a damned fine cup of coffee.
In one episode the FBI agent is told by the dead woman (oh, just go with it) that she would see him again in 25 years, and here we are 25 years later. So recently Showtime announced that Twin Peaks will return for a limited run of new episodes. I'm sure this time it will make sense.
