    Twin Peaks on Netflix streaming!

    It's like falling in love, all over again. There will never be another show like it. I don't think there can be another show like it.

    I still mourn the its cancellation. What happened to FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper? Was his soul utterly annihilated in the Black Lodge or is he trapped? Was BOB just going to keep killing?

    No season 3 and no good resolution leaves an aching hole in my heart.

    The first season ranks very near or among the best teevee of all time. Like many groundbreaking works, not everyone is going to get it, though. It folded/spindled/mutilated a lot of mainstream teevee's rules and conventions.

    Absolutely loved it, though. Still do.

    I'm ashamed to admit I don't think I ever watched an episode of TP when it was on the air. I'll have to catch it now and see what all the fuss was about.

    That show gave me nightmares!! Freaked me out big time. And I was in my late 20's at the time. I have the sound track on CD and it can still give me the willies

    We used to get really, really hammered and watch Twin Peaks when I was in college. It either got weirder or started making sense depending on the night.

    I admit it, I own the whole series, including the pilot
    when I was a musician and we did our first tour of the PNW I went to
    1) The Hotel @ Snowqualmie Falls
    2) The Lumber Mill
    3) we even found the stretch of road where they found Laura's body

    one of these days I gotta stock up on donuts, brew some coffee and hold a marathon

    Wow I was addicted too

    I went and saw the movie that they made, I liked the weekly show better. The movie was alot more racier than was allowed on TV. Chris Issac was in the movie also.

    Lots of people did not watch it, in part because by the time it had a buzz it was several episodes in, and you can NOT jump in any place but the start on this one.

    Give it a shot. But be aware that the shows end with a whimper, not a bang. As is the case with many canceled shows.

    i watched it for the first season but after that, i think it lost it's way. it's like an over the top Blue Velvet.

    Rumor had it at the time that the steep drop-off in quality from Season One to Season Two was due to David Lynch being occupied elsewhere/away for much of S2... he was off planning or doing a movie, allegedly. Don't know how true that is.

    In any case, yep, it just wasn't the same show beyond the first couple of episodes of S2. After that, it really went downhill. Heartbreaking.

    But I'll always love it for what it was in S1 and the beginning of S2... unbelievably great television.

    I read an interview with Mark Frost saying he was wanting to work on a movie early in season 2. There was also pressure from the studio to reveal the killer earlier than DL and MF intended, throwing off the pace from the first season.

    Half the time I wish there was at least a novel to wrap everything up. I'm not really sure what they were thinking with Fire Walk With Me. I liked the movie and that they wrote it for fans of the show, but it just seemed to confound as much as it explained.

    Written by Jennifer Lynch, David's daughter. Very good read. I bought it when it first came out.

    Gives a lot of background/really fleshes a lot of things out, but I don't remember it wrapping everything up nice n' neat.
