FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, a mystical loner and eccentric nature lover, comes to the small Washington state town of Twin Peaks to investigate the brutal murder of a young high school girl named Laura Palmer and soon becomes entangled in most of the town's problems and situations. Written by
The 90 minute pilot (Region 3 DVD) does not feature the dream sequence ending seen in other versions. Also, Laura's mom screams at the end when the broken heart necklace is dug up, not from seeing Bob at the foot of Laura's bed. See more »
At the end of the pilot, Sarah Palmer wakes up from the sofa screaming due to her vision. In the mirror above the sofa, you can see a reflection of what appears to be Frank Silva (Bob). Silva may have been off camera as he was the "on-set dresser" for this episode. It is more likely that he was there to assist Grace Zabriskie with her performance by recreating the scene in her vision (UK version of pilot). See more »
Twin Peaks for me is the pinnacle of television. It is masterfully crafted, superbly acted, and enthralling from the first minute to the very end.
It is a deep, rich story filled with quirky characters and imaginative plot that demands and draws your full attention. It's only failing was finishing too soon, but like many other great TV programs, that only makes the episodes created even more valuable.
Time will show Twin Peaks to be a powerful influence on many subsequent programs, and a masterpiece in it's own right. It's a must see for anyone who appreciates quality television or film.
