Twin Peaks

Monday September 15, 2014

Finally finished watching Twin Peaks after 14 years.

Twin Peaks Gold Box Edition

Back in 1990, I started watching Twin Peaks, a rather weird show for the time but it intrigued me. The first season was short, an hour and a half pilot episode then 7 weekly hour long episodes.

When it returned in 1991, David Lynch gave us another 22 episodes to keep up with, it proved a bit tough. In 1991, with kids to raise, extra curricular activities to attend, the only VCR in the house dedicated to recording soap operas, I lost touch with Agent Dale Cooper.

This past week, with DVD in hand, I watched episode after episode. At the end of the final episode I made a mental note to watch it all again in 10 years, it was that weird of an experience. It was soap opera meets Twilight Zone, every character was strange, there was no normalcy in Twin Peaks. Agent Fox Mulder in drag, need I say more.

I got idea man
You take me for a walk
Under the sycamore trees
The dark trees that blow baby
In the dark trees that blow

And I’ll see you
And you’ll see me
And I’ll see you in the branches that blow
In the breeze, I’ll see you in the trees
Under the sycamore trees
