A very interesting and bizarre whodunit.

Part mystery, part sci-fi, part thriller, part romance, and all awesome!

The sophomore season of TWIN PEAKS takes off exactly where the first left off. With the whole town in trouble, there are many conflicts desperately in need of resolution. Who will live and who will die? Other than the police, you really have little sympathy for the rest of the crazy town. Personally, my heart lies with the oft-inept Deputy Andy Brennan. My fear that too many subplots and too many characters would subtract from the driving force of the show sadly came true. Some of the characters who soak up screen time are so unlikable that they go past devilish into frustrating and I can't wait for the scene to change. Characters begin to change, not developing but suddenly shifting, leaving audiences jarred. After the reveal of Laura's killer midway through the season, I lost substantial interest. The series began to peter out until it was the diluted remains of its former glory. With a finale that offers more questions than answers and leaves the fates of its characters hanging in the balance, the second season of TWIN PEAKS seemed to have no point to make. With all the bizarre pseudo-artsy drivel it loads up on but no message behind it, the series is reduced to gibberish and nonsense. Sorry, but I can understand why it was cancelled.

This is a one of a kind super bizarre series that just ran wildly off the tracks in it's second season. Quirky and downright weird mixed with overacting and melodrama. Cheesy and brilliant in equal parts. I loved it. Kyle MacLachlan as Special Agent Dale Cooper and Sherilyn Fenn were the highlights for me. Season two is sort of a letdown, but is pretty entertaining in it's own right. Also, IF you get hooked you are going to want to finish the series AND watch the movie (Fire Walk With Me). Bravo.

This is the third time I've attempted to watch this series. I got to disc 4 (out of 10). Something just doesn't work. I think the overall gist of what Lynch was trying to do was to have the viewer stop in their tracks and see the absurdity of the reality they call reality - to look at the 'real world' and see how emotions distort our perception. But still, I want to be entertained just a tad more along the way of the 'lesson'.

A really unique piece of TV history. Unique, for the most part, due to the demented David Lynch. His bizarro flavor is all over this. Lynch's main maestro for many of his manic movies, Angelo Badalamenti, lays down an unforgettable theme song & a jazzy score here -- mandatory in setting the cool/eerie/menacing atmosphere. The show does drag on as series two progresses, with a fair amount of nonsense and tedium (personally, I wouldn't have minded if Nadine, her drape runners, her identity crisis, and her pirate patch had been written out entirely). It was funny to see David Duchovny as a she-male, and Heather Graham so young, one of several gorgeous young ladies in the cast. Another example being Sherilyn Fenn, as the spoiled saddle-shoed Audrey, with her cherry stem knot-tying talent (yowzah!). Altogether, I really enjoyed this soapy series. The finale was surreal -- a helluva trip, but it bummed me the (expletive) out, though. Are you kidding me?!? *THAT'S* HOW IT ENDS?!?!?

Back in the very early '90's, Twin Peaks was THE show to watch. It was everywhere and everyone was talking about it. Nothing like this had ever been seen on television. Great quirky characters, intriging plots, and of the course the whole "Who killed Laura Palmer?" arc. Fascinating TV. Then the second season came along and CBS made what I still think is a critical error. They moved Twin Peaks to the Saturday night timeslot. Unfortunately, the biggest demographic who watched the show were the type of people who usually went out Saturday night. So Twin Peaks carefully structured storylines got confusing for viewers who may have had to miss a couple of episodes or so, and alot of people just gave up. It's great to see these episodes again, but frankly, after the reveal of who Laura Palmer's killer was, the show should have ended.

Twin Peaks was a very quirky series that gathered quite a cult following in the years after it first aired. Seeing it now it seems much more soap opera than mystery. Season One is the best and be forewarned - although the original murder mystery is solved the show was cancelled and the later mystery is left hanging.

"Now you listen to me. While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I am a naysayer and hatchetman in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I'll gladly take another because I choose to live my life in the company of Gandhi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method... is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman."

"Listen to me, Lucy Moran, you just listen. When the Tacoma Sperm Bank was looking for donors, naturally I applied. It's my civic duty and I like whales. A routine physical examination revealed that I'm sterile. Sure, I thought it meant that I didn't have to take a bath, but the doctors told me the truth. They told me I can't have babies. So what I wanna know now is why are you having one and how?"

The Log Lady (introduction): "There is a sadness in this world, for we are ignorant of many things. Yes, we are ignorant of many beautiful things... things like the truth. So sadness, in our ignorance, is very real. The tears are real. What is this thing called a tear? There are even tiny ducts, tear ducts, to produce these tears should the sadness occur. Then the day when the sadness comes... then we ask: "Will this sadness which makes me cry; will this sadness that makes me cry my heart out -- will it ever end?" The answer, of course, is yes! One day the sadness... will end."

FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield: "...Cooper, this old fool is obstructing a criminal investigation. Cuff him!" Dr. Will Hayward: "He won't release Laura's body for the funeral. He's not human!" Sheriff Harry S. Truman: "What's the holdup?" FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield: "Please, Cooper. I do not suffer fools, gladly, and fools with badges -- never. I want no interference from this hulking boob -- is that clear?" Sheriff Harry S. Truman: "I've had just about enough of your insults." FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield: "...Oh yeah? Well I've had about enough of, uh, morons and half wits; dolts, dunces, dullards and dumbbells... And you, chowder-head yokel; you blithering hayseed... You, you, you... You've had enough of me?" Sheriff Harry S. Truman: "Yes I have." (punches Albert in the face)
