I finished Twin Peaks season 1 recently and couldn't get wait to start on season 2... I know this is an old show, but I also know that there are a lot of fans of the series out there so I thought I would start up a discussion thread for those interested in re-living the series...
I was obsessed with this when it was originally aired. I was only very young and had to convince my parents to let me watch it. I do think it is one of the best TV shows ever made, certainly the first season.
It definitely made me want to seek out other things David Lynch was involved in and he's still one of my favourite directors.
I'm thinking of asking for the gold DVD box set of this for Christmas.
I saw it for the first time about a year or so ago, and I really love it. I stopped watching after the mystery was solved though because I felt like there was no drive left. I still have the episodes on my harddrive though, should I continue watching? Is it worth the time?
I love the mood and the visuals of the show, it's very inspiring compared to shows these days (I'm looking at you The O.C./ new Beverly Hills etc)...
It was incredible that a show like this was put on network television. I don't think they knew what they were getting themselves into. And then once they saw, they didn't know what to do with it. Too much pressure from studio execs kinda killed the show early in the second season (some of the DVD commentaries mention it). I don't want to say too much though so as not to spoil it for Belowen.
I do think it's worth persevering to the end though as there are still elements of genius there.
I also stopped watching midway through season two a few episodes after they solved the murder, but it was a great show. Totally unlike anything else on TV and if someone attempted something like it again I think it would come off as a pale immitation.
that show is one of the scaryest tv show i have ever watched.
i had to watch it lights on and never alon.
i was like...10 when i first time saw episodes and when i was 14 i watched the every season.
oh, good memories

Saw it when it aired and then again a couple of months ago. It aged quite well.
It kinda falls in quality after the crime is solved. The first episodes are great even now.
I saw the movie decades ago, I´ll try to watch it again.
So many great actors that never appeared in good roles after TP. I guess there was a talk about a TP "curse". I once saw Laura Palmer in a House supporting role. And Leland as a super minor caracter in MadMen. Kyle Mc Laghlan also was GREAT in TP and such a dork in Desperate Houswives.
I should revisit this series, watched it on t.v. when it first came out. I just saw the band "Cults" about a week ago and they walked on stage to the Twin Peaks theme music, and now today I see this thread. Guess it is a sign to rent the DVDs and relive the series!
