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 »

You can count on the fingers of your hands TV shows that really hook you after only one minute, and for the rest of your spectator's life. Twin Peaks is masterfully written, directed, photographed and played. Every single character is unique and haunt you long after the end credits. But something really upsets me with Twin Peaks, and that's the way people only credit david lynch for this masterpiece, too often neglecting the wonderful work Mark Frost did with the scripts. Sure, Twin Peaks is a visual achievement, but the way Mark Frost handled the stories, allowing david Lynch and every other guest directors to express their talents is wonderful, and it's a shame the talented mr Lynch is often the only one to receive credits for it (and I recommend to you, among many others, the Diane Keaton directed episode, which is one of the most beautiful and best "lynchian" episodes of the second season.). So, let Twin Peaks and his inhabitants capture you, let them live in you, and don't forget to thank mr Lynch & Frost for giving us the chance to be attracted in their not-so-strange world
