Some people remember where they were when the Challenger exploded or what they were doing when they learned that President Kennedy had been shot. We remember where we were when we first saw Agent Cooper pull a folded piece of paper out from underneath Laura Palmer's fingernail. It's not that we're anti-current events or anything -- it's just that "Twin Peaks" sort of changed our lives. It was one of the most powerful and cinematic series to burst onto the air and we're not exaggerating when we say it's the reason we fell in love with television.
From Sarah Palmer's anguished cries heard through the receiver lying on the floor of the Great Northern Hotel to the stoplight at Sparkwood and 21 swaying in the night breeze, David Lynch's ground-breaking series was tragic, haunting, and beautiful. The words "She's dead ... wrapped in plastic" launched a phenomenon, and for an entire year everyone was dying to know who killed Laura Palmer.
For those who remember the fire at the Packard saw mill, the mina bird assassination, and Agent Cooper's daily reports to Diane ("Diane, I'm holding in my hands a small box of chocolate bunnies") with vivid fondness -- or for those who just want to see what they missed-- check out our Where Are They Now: "Twin Peaks" slideshow here.
Did you figure out who killed Laura Palmer or were you shocked when you found out?
