Pop culture classic. If you were to look up that term you would find a picture of the David Lynch series Twin Peaks beside it. As Twin Peaks is returning to television in 2017 under the guiding hands of Lynch and David Frost it makes sense that a complete box set of everything Twin Peaks is being released to allow you to brush up with the iconic series.
Despite all this hype and anticipation it seems like overkill as a similar box set was released in 2014. Basically this is the same as that except for the two minor differences in that this is in a more storage friendly case(s) and there are nine discs instead of ten. So, in other words, if you spent money on the 2014 version then no need to get this one.
For those, for one reason or another, who were not able to watch the David Lynch series you are in for a treat. There has never been anything like Twin Peaks on television. Despite all the hype surrounding the series it is one of those rare ones that lives up to it. Intrigue, oddities and dark humour fill every nook and cranny of the series that lasted two seasons.
Not your typical murder mystery, Twin Peaks is an odd little town. It follows then when a murder of a high school homecoming queen (Laura Palmer) occurs there is nothing typical about it. FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (played by Kyle MacLachlan) is brought in to investigate and has his hands full. He soon is trying to figure out all kinds of high school characters like the jock, the thug and the biker. All are equally as eccentric as he.
The more he finds out the more Agent Cooper realizes that Laura Palmer was a mystery even before her death. Her best friends Donna Hayward (played by Lara Flynn Boyle) and Audrey Horne (played by Sherilyn Fenn) don’t seem to know the real story of Laura. Instead of clearing things up the mystery becomes more and more involved as the series plays out. Will keep you hanging on.
There are a ton of characters in the series. Keep your eyes open for cameo or supporting roles by the likes of Alicia Witt, Molly Shannon, Willie Garson, David Duchovny, Billy Zane, Heather Graham, Miguel Ferrer, and even David Lynch himself. The difference between Twin Peaks and other series is that even the supporting characters are as interesting as the lead ones.
Fire Walk With Me came a few years later and was a television movie made as a companion to the television series. Though it was decent it in no way lived up to the quality of the series. It deals with the last seven days of Laura Palmer (played by Sheryl Lee). Most of the cast returned for the prequel.
The Missing Pieces is ninety minutes of deleted scenes from Fire Walk With Me. The scenes were trimmed so the movie would not be a bulky four hours long.
