After watching almost a thousand minutes of 'Twin Peaks' (pilot plus sixteen epsiodes) this weekend, what can i say... David Lynch and Mark Frost's creation is still among the most memorable and adventurous TV ever made. The series is often credited for setting a new standard in TV drama cinematography, but storywise such weirdness and darkness was not seen again. (Except perhaps for Dennis Potter's 'Karaoke', but that was only four episodes.)
Not entirely surprising perhaps from a director who said about 'Twin Peaks':
I liked the idea of a continuing story that sucks you into a deeper world. But Laura Palmer's killer was never meant to be discovered. The mystery was meant to float permanently above the action. Once it got solved, something beautiful was lost.
Anyway, thanks to the people from LLIK for damn fine coffee and cherrie pie.
