Storyline

Twin Peaks, WA comes to Dorking, Surrey as the villagers of a heavily wooded town steeped in mysticism gather for May Day, an annual festival to celebrate ancient pagan rituals. Fourteen year old Hattie Sutton is the Queen of May Day. A wreath of flowers and silky ribbons crowns her blonde hair as Hattie cycles to take catch up with the lead float in the parade. But, she never reaches the festival. Written by LA-Lawyer

Episode 1
3 October 2015 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I was astonished by the reviews here. I love all the small stories that are painted up. Families, couples and individuals. The acting is great with some exemptions. I have just watched episode 1 and I like it.

There are parts that smells excellence, but some errors in the script make good scenes turn out to be stupid. I think that the first episode would have earned in a extra round of external reading. "Does this work?" "Does this make sense?"

The photo is good. The actors are good. The script is some times good some times awful. Good work on the details. Several of the characters are believable. But I can stand some errors. I can. I wonder where this will lead to. Where to go after episode 1?
