Trivia

David Lynch and Mark Frost were originally working on a screen adaptation of the Marilyn Monroe biography 'Goddess'. When they failed to get the rights to the book, the project they embarked upon instead, 'Twin Peaks', contained many elements of Marilyn Monroe's story - particularly the fact that she is killed just before she mentions in her diary that she is going to tell the world the truth about the famous and important man she is having an affair with (Ben Horne).

Goofs

The fact that there was a year's gap between the filming of the pilot episode and the first season's episode is evident in the different hairstyles sported by some of the cast. Although only a night is meant to have passed between the episodes, James Hurley, Sheriff Truman, and Deputy Brennan all have shorter haircuts by the next day. Donna Hayward, Catherine Martell and Audrey Horne (in particular) all have noticeably longer hair by the next day. See more »

Crazy Credits

There are some episodes that don't end with the usual Homecoming Queen photo of Laura Palmer and "Laura Palmer's Theme" in the credits: Episode 2 credits feature the Little Man from Another Place seen from above and dancing. Episode 8 features Gersten Hayward (Alicia Witt) playing the piano. Episode 14 shows Agent Cooper, the red curtains and the song "The World Spins" by Julee Cruise. Episode 18 features Ben Horne's old home movies seen in this same episode. Episode 29 features the coffee cup given to Cooper in the Red Room and Laura's face on it. See more »

Fantastic
21 June 2002 | by (Cork, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Possibly one of the best TV dramas ever, "Twin Peaks" managed to be a challenging and unique (not to mention intelligent) piece of television.

Daring and provocative, it shattered the boundaries of most standard soap operas/TV dramas.

Terrified of it by a child (and in particular by BOB) I have since returned to it on DVD, only to find myself just as terrified and intrigued by it as I was when I was twelve years old and crouching behind my late grandmother's couch.

A piece of groundbreaking television history... WATCH IT
