"The owls are not what they seem."
It was over 20 years before anyone picked up the gantlet thrown down by Patrick McGoohan in 1967 with The Prisoner, and although David Lynch & Mark Frost were obviously not directly inspired by it, this was with out a doubt the first television that has had the same impact (Albeit with a different message). David Lynch was such a cult director at the time, that anything he put his name to was bound to be a run a way success, unfortunately when Laura Palmer's murderer was found, many viewers just tuned out. (Which is a shame, because the story was just beginning)
For most, the show was "Strange and complicated" at best, but for more open minded lovers of the weird and wonderful, Twin Peaks is one of the greatest television shows ever made.
