Twin Peaks (1990)
A Damn Fine Cup of Coffee
In a time when sitcoms, cop shows and medical dramas culminated, David Lynch and Mark Frost managed to change the face of television forever with their groundbreaking cult TV show Twin Peaks.
The recipe was simple. They subverted the nighttime soap opera genre, along with using elements from their own artistic sensibilities and that lead to the show's creation.
Twin Peaks follows FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (portrayed marvelously by Lynch's muse, Kyle MacLachlan) who arrives in the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington to investigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer. He's assisted by the town's top lawman Sheriff Harry S. Truman.
Besides the main mystery, Twin Peaks explores the life in this small northwestern town and exposes the secrets of its quirky and peculiar citizens.
The mix of the unsettling surrealistic tone and the supernatural elements with the campy, offbeat and melodramatic portrayal of the town, truly made Twin Peaks a singular experience.
Twin Peaks is world full of possibilities and ambiguity and it stills stands as one of the towering achievements of the small screen. It also paved the way for the so called 'Golden age of TV' like no other show had done at the time.
