Twin Peaks was only on the air a few years, and totals about thirty hours of television, but quality matters more than quantity, and this was a groundbreaking, original, surreal and surprising show, with a boatload of memorable characters and Kyle MacLachlan as coffee-loving agent Cooper, squeaky clean and smart, slowly exploring the darkness of Twin Peaks and the murder of Laura Palmer.
Finally, the series is complete on DVD, the original movie pilot and all the episodes, along with the option of a log lady intro (another favourite character) and a bonus disc of deleted scenes, the documentary "A Slice of Lynch," the feature length "Secrets from Another Place," on the show, as well as the famous Saturday Night Live sketch with MacLachlan, music videos and more. There's even a selection of a dozen postcards from Twin Peaks included, though of course this is a clever way to get you to mail ads for this set all over the continent. I even like the way the discs are packaged, easily accessed because it's like flipping through a book.
Peaks fans may want to check out Carnivale, the HBO series that also finds themes of good versus evil, and borrows the surreal tone of Twin Peaks.
