The ULTIMATE Twin Peaks episode...
14 August 2007 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is the ultimate Twin Peaks episodes, no doubt about it. This episode contain's the "Cooper & the midget dream sequence", which is really THE scene that everyone still remembers who watched the series back in the 90s, one of the most intense television ever. It's also a fact that the David Lynch episodes where the best. (and the most creepy)

Here the series just gets "weird" for the first time. This really surprised many viewers who up to this point thought they were watching only a murder mystery. Here it gets surrealistic. It's brilliant how Lynch introduced his mind to the masses with twin peaks.
