Damn fine coffee

Almost 20 years ago, my best friend and I devoted each Saturday during the television season to the cultural phenomenon known as Twin Peaks. Nell and I were beyond hooked. We talked about Twin Peaks constantly and kept a notebook with clues we hoped would lead us to Laura Palmer's killer. We baked Twin Peaks cherry pie from scratch (crust too!) and enjoyed our hot chocolate (neither of us were coffee drinkers). In short, I loved this show.

And now I love my husband, since he bought me the Twin Peaks DVD Gold Collection. Kevin missed Twin Peaks when it came out (though how that can be possible, I don't know) so it's been really fun watching it with someone seeing it for the first time. It's also an entirely different experience knowing who the killer is (as much as you can "know who the killer is" in any David Lynch production) and watching it again. I haven't seen the show since it originally aired and I'm amazed by all of the clues planted so early on. Still, one of the things that made Twin Peaks amazing was the fact that almost every single character was a red herring.

I had also forgotten how funny the show is. And how much more I understand almost 20 years later. Anyway, I highly recommend Twin Peaks to everyone! If you were a devoted fan, re-watch it and be amazed! If you missed it, you're in for the treat of a lifetime!!
