Twin Peaks discussion thread #1: Who killed Laura Palmer?


Twin Peaks is an American television serial drama created by David Lynch and Mark Frost. The series follows the investigation headed by FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), of the murder of a popular teenager and homecoming queen, Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). Twin Peaks' pilot episode was first broadcast on April 8, 1990 on ABC, which led to another seven episodes being produced and a second season, which aired until June 10, 1991. The show's name came from its setting, a small fictional Washington town. Exteriors were primarily filmed in Snoqualmie and North Bend, with additional exteriors shot in southern California. Most of the interior scenes were shot on standing sets in a San Fernando Valley warehouse.

Twin Peaks became one of 1990's top-rated shows, a critical success both nationally and internationally. Reflecting its devoted cult fan base, the series became a part of popular culture, referenced in other television shows, commercials, comic books, video games, films and song lyrics. Declining viewer ratings led to ABC's insistence that the identity of Laura's murderer be revealed midway through the second season. In 1992, the series spawned a prequel, the film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, a commercial failure in America, but a success in Japan. In 1997, the pilot episode was ranked #25 on TV Guide's 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time. In 2002, the series was ranked #45 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time and in 2007, it was listed as one of Time magazine's "Best TV Shows of All-TIME."

Thanks for getting this started, Dan

I have to admit that I haven't watched Twin Peaks ages, though.

Is it out on DVD already?

The name sounds real familiar but none of it sounds familiar.

Loved this show, though it should have ended after Leland died.

Woah, there's a thread for this show here? Amazing!

I think the show began to go downhill when they broke up the Dale Cooper/Audrey Horne relationship. They had the hottest chemistry on the show, and I heard that it was Kyle MacLachlan who insisted that they end that storyline because he felt in inappropriate for Agent Cooper to become involved with a high school student. Kyle was a fool for not knowing what the show had with Dale/Audrey, and pairing them up in zero-chemistry couplings - Dale/Annie, John/Audrey - killed the show. Ironically, Annie was no more appropriate for Dale than Audrey was, as she was about the same age, and Heather Graham was actually younger than Sherilyn Fenn. And Billy Zane's character, John, was about the same age as Agent Cooper, so what was the point? The producers should've just kept it Dale/Audrey and told Kyle to deal with it.

Apparently Kyle asked that Dale/Audrey broke up because Kyle's gf at the time was Lara Flynn Boyle, who was jealous of the attention Sherilyn was getting.

Lynch and Frost each tweeted the identical message: "Dear Twitter Friends: That gum you like is going to come back in style! #damngoodcoffee"

Has anyone looked into the new series Wayward Pines on FOX? It supposedly has a similar flavor to Twin Peaks.

The trailers (at the link) are captivating.
