Damn Good Coffee...And Hot! The Twin Peaks Appreciation Thread

Twin Peaks was the greatest and most inventive show in television history in my opinion and the movie is my favorite film. I'm wondering if there are those out there that liked the show or the movie. If so tell me why, because I'm interested.



Some of the best scenes from the show were:

In the pilot when the principle told the school about Laura's death and that moment where Donna looks at Laura's empty desk realizing what has happened.

After Bob killed Maddy, when the giant disappears replaced by Julee Cruise singing World Spins. The helplessness of Cooper is heartbreaking.

After Bob leaves, Leland realizes what he has done as Cooper tells him to go into the light.

It is amazing the influence of this show. Here is part of the wikipedia article on the show

"Twin Peaks' legacy can be seen in the slew of "quirky" TV shows that followed it, such as Northern Exposure, Wild Palms, American Gothic, Eerie, Indiana, Picket Fences, The X-Files, Desperate Housewives, Veronica Mars, Lost, Nip/Tuck and Carnivàle. Many of these series have been referred to as "the next Twin Peaks", either before their run or after popular success."

For anyone who doesn't know anything about the show here's the whole wikipedia article.

Great, great show. I have the premiere and the first season on DVD.

Unfortunately, I think the show really went downhill after they had the big reveal of Who Killed Laura Palmer. It got silly and too bizarre.

However ... the final episode? Scariest thing I've ever seen on TV.

I was obsessed with this show when it was on. I had the diary and the soundtrack, and I agree - it really did go downhill after we found out who killed her.

I never watched it when it first aired because I was not allowed to watch it per my parents. I would love to watch it now because I am sure it would be a show that would interest me.

Twin Peaks was a great, bizarre show -- which, sadly, jumped the shark after its first season.

FYI, Kyle MacLaclan fans: He's now playing Orson the Dentist/Bree's latest weirdo fiance on Desperate Housewives.

The soundtrack to the series and Fire Walk With Me are played on my IPod as much as U2. Julee Cruise has the voice of an angel.

I absolutely love this show, Weird, scary, surreal, inventive, with great idiosyncratic characters. Yeah, it went downhill after the mystery was revealed but IMO there was still something to enjoy in each episode and the finale gave me nightmares, I've never looked at the red curtains the same way ever since.
