Why Twin Peaks Still Rules


It's been 27 years since Pete Martell nervously spoke those words into his phone to Sherriff Harry S. Truman. And America was hooked. It all started with a serene opening credit sequence accompanied by an enchantingly tranquil score from Angelo Badalamenti. The pilot for David Lynch and Mark Frost's Twin Peaks scored a freakin' 22 rating. It was truly a phenomenon. One third of all TV viewers that night watched the tragic unveiling, and unwrapping, of a beautiful, blue-ish corpse belonging to seemingly squeaky-clean small town Homecoming Queen, Laura Palmer. And now, amazingly, Twin Peaks is returning with new episodes May 21st on Showtime.
