It was 20 years ago today...

...that Twin Peaks was first unleashed on the world.

K. and I spent a gloriously good chunk of 2008 watching the entire series while drinking whiskey sours. We even followed it up with Lynch's prequel Fire Walk With Me. Man, was that a fun time: the show is fascinating and weird and riveting and meaningful and just fun-as-hell. The first season - only seven episodes long - is a masterpiece of suspense and storytelling. Season two wasn't as good, although it still had it's moments. Some of the actors - like James - are really, really bad, while others are excellent. For example, Kyle McLaughlin has never been better.

If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend you give it a try.
