In 1990, David Lynchʹs cult series “Twin Peaks” premiered on ABC-TV as a special two-hour movie. A bird cocks its head. Smokestacks belch exhaust. A sawmillʹs blades shoot sparks. A guitar plays a dreamy, sensuous adagio as white water crashes over the falls and then gently flows to Laura Palmer, the golden girl of Twin Peaks, washed up dead onshore, wrapped in plastic. This is how the self-titled premiere episode ushered us into the shocking, surreal, sui generis world of Twin Peaks, a piney realm populated with bizarre characters — barking teens, a mystical FBI agent, a finger-snapping, dancing midget.
