Pity about the shitty second season. (save for the series finale, which freaked my shit RIGHT OUT.)

i would say that the 2nd season only suffered from a bad 4-5 episodes in a row. i thought the 2nd season was pretty strong all the way up to when they revealed who Laura's killer was, and then it seemed like they just didn't have any big storyline to keep the viewers hooked. with that said, yes, i thought the last 3 episodes were gold.

i really wish there had been a 3rd season, all directed by Lynch.

also, i'm still holding out hope that David Lynch will decide to make another movie about the series. i've always imagined a movie called "Cooper", staring Kyle McLauchlan where it's 20 years later, and when Agent Cooper returns from Philly to Twin Peaks to say hello to some old friends, the same shit starts happening.

Wait ... I thought they revealed Laura's killer in the first season! Wasn't
 
Leland's death
at the end of the first season? After
 
he was revealed to have killed her in the guise of Bob?

no, the 1st season ended with Cooper gettng shot at his hotel room. they actually don't reveal the killer until about the 7th or 8th episode into the 2nd season. Lynch said that the network was putting pressure on him to reveal the killer. he actually wanted to stretch the storyline out until the 3rd season.

Dang, I guess it's time for me to rewatch the whole thing, since clearly I have a skewed memory of season 2!

i bought the Gold Edition a couple years ago. it's nice to see a high quality version of the 2nd season. it's probably been about 2 years since i watched the whole series, but i found myself enjoying the 2nd season more than thought i would.

Man I love and adore this show Even though it put a fear of red curtains into me for life.

I quite like the second season, despite the fact that it does go off the rails a bit once Laura's murder mystery is solved. And yes, the final episode freaked me out bad.

The series finale was excellent but the pilot to me was without a doubt the greatest first episode of any series. There was no learning curve. The show was perfect from the start.

Also, I don't know if anyone agrees but I thought the movie was better than the series and I consider the series one of the best.

i really enjoyed the movie. that one scene with Cooper running back and forth between the surveillance camera and the screen was pretty great!

and yes, the pilot is just wonderful. i don't know that a pilot like that would have success these days. every show is so catered to ADD now.

I stumbled across this today and discovered it still freaks me out.

DO NOT WANT!

It's nifty living in the area where they filmed so much of the exterior stuff. I go to Snoqualmie Falls about once every year or so, and one of these times, I'll start singing the theme song really loudly.

And then go eat at Tweed's Pies ... although I think it's called something else now.

I will never forget watching that pilot with my parents and how blown away all of us were. I watched the entire series as it aired, and revisited it for the first time about 2 years ago. I look forward to a 3rd viewing down the road.
