Haven't seen the show since it aired originally, I was in my early 20's.
r1 - same here, they lost me with that.
I was really creeped out when Laura's father got taken over by the creepy dude.
Loved Agent Cooper, though I never cared for the actor in other parts too much.
I wanted to look like Sherilyn Fenn.

I remember they used to air it on Bravo, when Bravo meant arty movies and long forgotten cult shows, not real Housewives and Andy Cohen.

The first season, and the second season's first episodes up until the killer is revealed, are all brilliant.
After that? It lost its way.
But it was canceled just as it was finding its way again.

God, I loved this show, one minute hilarious and then totally creepy. Never missed an episode but my best friend couldn't stand it, yet he came over every Sat to watch. He couldn't believe the dresser knob sequence either. Finally the movie came out and we went to a multiplex to see it. We're sitting there and Laura is in her room, she's scared, there is great tension then and a white horse appears and my friend yells "Jesus Christ", gets up and walks out. The audience roared with laughter because they knew, either ya love or ya don't. He went to watch something else because he knew I wasn't going anywhere.
|by The Log Lady||reply 8||05/27/2012|
The actor who played Bob used to scare the shit out of me. And the scene were he kills Laura's brunette cousin is some of the most brutal stuff I've ever seen on television. It's hard to believe this aired on network TV. Now it would only survive on cable.
|by The Log Lady||reply 9||05/27/2012|
R8... I *loved* the series.
I thought the movie, "Fire Walk With Me" was horrible, awful, a rank piece of shit.

Piper Laurie was fucking fierce on that show. Catherine debating about whether or not she should save Shelly's life was a delicious scene, and the Josie/Catherine feud was my favorite storyline.
But drawer knob Josie... yeah, that kind of sucked.

That cast was filled with very sexy guys: MacLachlan, Ontkean, Dana Ashbrook, Eric Da Re, Michael Horse, Gary Hersberger, hot daddies like Richard Beymer.
Plus the first season WAS brilliant.

Have any of you rewatched it recently? I tried to last summer and yikes. It does not hold up well at all. What was innovative 20 years ago just came off as silly now.

I was a college freshman when the show was popular. The snooty girls across the hall would invite us over to watch. They served coffee and cherry pie, of course. I thought the show was boring but the free food was a nice treat.
I really like the music. I have the TV show and movie soundtracks on CD.

Lara Flynn Boyle was beautiful in this show. And the guy who played Bobby, Dana Ashbrook, I think, was very very hot. Excellent score too.

Laura Palmer was the most interesting character - they should have had cousin Maddie the one who was killed, and Laura masquerade as Maddie. David Lynch had been a big fan of the 40's film noir, Laura and he left red flags that that was what he was playing out.

When her character dies her face appears on the knob of the nightstand or dresser, and makes some kind of silent scream. At the time the special effects must have cost a pretty penny, but it was Joan Chen dying after all.

Twin Peaks initially aired during my senior year of high school. I don't remember what day it aired, but whatever the next day was, my deep country Connecticut first period French AP class, all 5 of us, would giddily discuss. (Girls and the gays they tried to date.) First, we had to go get bagels and coffee while Monsieur waited.
Ineffectual as he was, he made us talk about it in French. I've pretty much lost all of my French, but I remember those discussions. And how brilliantly stupid they were.

So interesting that this thread was bumped up now. I was too young to have seen it during its initial run, but I bought the box set after hearing all the hype, and I finally broke it out during Sandy when I didn't have any cable. It's interesting, but I'm having trouble getting into it. I'm stuck around episode five.
Having said that, Piper Laurie really does play the best battleax in the business. I want to try and make it to the episodes where she plays an Asian man.
