Twin Peaks - David Lynch Early 90's Cult TV Show
About Twin Peaks
Twin Peaks was an early 1990's cult TV show created by David Lynch and Mark Frost. The story centered around the murder of popular high school student Laura Palmer and the investigation surrounding her death.
Kyle Maclachlan played the central role of Special Agent Dale Cooper who was sent by the FBI to Twin Peaks to investigate the case. Behind the seemingly simple story of a murder case was a mysterious, dark and surreal turn of events involving odd characters that surprised and shocked viewers, not to mention captivated them.
Who killed Laura Palmer? Was the biggest TV related question during the early 90's, and catchphrases such as "The Owls Are Not As They Seem" were uttered on a regular basis by fans.
The stranger characters include The Log Lady, Nadine, The One Armed Man, The Giant and The Dwarf.
As for Bob. Well as a huge fan of the show, I still have nightmares about him. I won't be uploading pics of that character anytime soon!
