The really incredible thing about Twin Peaks is that two decades after it aired, despite having all its tricks stolen by The X-Files and Lost and its memory desecrated by The Killing,
despite Ray Wise, Kyle MacLachlan and Dana Ashbrook having made careers
out of parodying their characters on the show, David Lynch’s exercise
in testing the limits of network television still has the power to
occupy our nightmares. Leland Palmer crooning “Mairzy Doats,” the
muttering Log Lady, the dancing dwarf in the red room, any appearance by
BOB—these are horrors as yet unmatched. And now you can see them as
they were never intended, two episodes every Wednesday on the big
screen, with beer.
