Trivia

The unofficial title of this episode, Zen, Or The Skill To Catch A Killer, is a bit of a misnomer. Cooper's interest is in Tibetan Buddhism. While both Zen and Tibetan Buddhism fall under the mantle of Mahayana Buddhism, they are in fact quite different. See more »

In the rock-throwing scene, the letters "R" and "T" go from uncircled to circled between shots. See more »

Quotes

Sheriff Harry S. Truman: There's a sort of evil out there. Something very, very strange in these old woods. Call it what you want. A darkness, a presence. It takes many forms but... its been out there for as long as anyone can remember and we've always been here to fight it.

So far, the series has been really great. It is captivating with very interesting characters with mysterious reasons. Episode 3 shows a dream sequence which I have to say, is one of the best scenes I have ever seen on television. The dream sequence is wonderfully written and directed. It has the atmosphere and the tone of a motion picture, and it certainly has the famous Lynchian feeling to it. 3 episodes in, and this series is addicting and very, very well written and directed. It makes most shows out there seem like filler compared to this. I will happily continue to watch and enjoy Twin Peaks, because it serves interesting story lines every episode so far.
