Trivia

Richard Beymer and Russ Tamblyn both starred in the film version of West Side Story, as Tony and Riff respectively. However, they were cast as Ben Horne and Lawrence Jacoby independent of each other and the coincidence was not noted until afterwards. In fact they didn't share many scenes until Horne's civil war delusion subplot in season 2. See more »

Quotes

Fantastic

Possibly one of the best TV dramas ever, "Twin Peaks" managed to be a challenging and unique (not to mention intelligent) piece of television.

Daring and provocative, it shattered the boundaries of most standard soap operas/TV dramas.

Terrified of it by a child (and in particular by BOB) I have since returned to it on DVD, only to find myself just as terrified and intrigued by it as I was when I was twelve years old and crouching behind my late grandmother's couch.

A piece of groundbreaking television history... WATCH IT
