"TWIN PEAKS"

I recently watched the whole two year series of television shows of "Twin Peaks" on CBS.com.
CBS.com along with "Hulu", "Joost", and other Internet media sites are a great way to see television shows such as "Lost", "24", Twin Peaks" and others where the television plot is such where if you happen to miss an episode you don't have much of a clue as to how the story line developed from the last episode you watched to the next show you saw. The advantage of the Internet is that you can watch the whole series when you want to with fewer commercials than with "live" television and also see shows that are not currently on TV.

"Twin Peaks" developed by David Lynch and Mark Frost was set in the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington and aired during two seasons in 1990 and 1991. Laura Palmer, a local high school student, is murdered and agent Dale Cooper of the FBI is sent to investigate and assist Sheriff Harry S. Truman. There are a host of other interesting and quirky characters throughout the episodes with dream sequences, bizarre plot twists, and strangely funny scenes. Agent Cooper sure loved a good cup or black coffee and a slice of pie.

I don't want to give away too much of the plot twists and turns as you should see this show for yourself and draw your own impressions. However, it seems to me that the central theme of David Lynch productions is his thought that beneath the tranquil settings of the seemingly normal woodsy "Twin Peaks" lies an evil that bubbles to the surface. I think the name "Twin Peaks" symbolizes the battle of " good versus evil " in life.

So, you should take a peek at "Twin Peaks" and follow along this interesting and entertaining story. Maybe you too will become a member of the "Lynch Mob" of people who appreciate the genius of David Lynch.
