Trivia

Although Joan Chen assumed the role of Jocelyn "Josie" Packard, the character was originally written as an Italian woman named Giovanna Pasquialini Packard, with Isabella Rossellini slated for the role. This earlier version of the character appears in the first pilot script David Lynch and Mark Frost submitted to ABC. In this seminal draft, the series was entitled NORTHWEST PASSAGE. See more »

Goofs

Not long after the class scene where Donna starts to cry and James breaks his pencil when they have a premonition about Laura Palmer being dead, Principal Wolchezk makes an announcement. With the previous scene in mind, he tells about Laura Palmer as their classmate, whilst actually the announcement is meant for the whole school. See more »

Probably one of the best series ever...
1 April 2006 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This series catches you or it doesn't. If it does, it will probably remain with you for the rest of your life. I love all the characters (I even watched other movies they played in, hoping it would contain some of Twin Peaks' magic.), the music, the surroundings, the plots, the coffee and doughnuts, everything! If Twin Peaks really existed I would have emigrated to it years ago already...

I have season one on DVD for a couple of years now, but still haven't found season two being released. I really hope it will be, because my video tapes won't last much longer from excessive watching. ;)

David, isn't it time to open the lodge again and show us what happened 25 years later?
