Twin Peaks - $9

I don't want to say too much about Twin Peaks yet because I'm just finishing season 1 tonight but so far it has been just about the most quirky, creepy, funny and entertaining TV I've ever watched.

Twin Peaks centers around Agent Cooper, who has to be one of the best TV characters of all time. He's an FBI agent visiting the small town of Twin Peaks to investigate a murder. He's weird and eccentric but smart and strong at the same time. Obsessed with good coffee and finding the meaning of his dreams, Cooper would be dismissed as unstable if he weren't right so often. The picture above is from my favorite scene so far, it's a dream Cooper has and it's better seen than described, but essentially the murdered girl and a little person talk to him in voices that sound as if they've been recorded backwards and played back forward.

This is just good television.

The characters in Twin Peaks are all either crazy, mysterious or solid every day people. As weird as the show is it might be a pretty accurate portrayal of a normal town.

I can't wait to finish watching it and I highly recommend you see it if you never have. I give it a value of $9 and it's obviously on the 'Watch It' list.

Hi, I noticed your review of Twin Peaks. Interested in another TV series on DVD? I work at M80, a social media company in Los Angeles (perhaps we've collaborated before). Currently we are working with 20th Century Fox to gear up for the release of the Family Guy Vol. 6 on DVD, which will be available in stores October 21st.
I would love it if you were willing to share our Family Guy clips with your audience. Let me know if you are interested and I can send along a copy of Family Guy Vol. 6. Feel free to keep it for yourself or you could run a giveaway on your site.
