Sometimes the situation calls for swearing. This is one such time. Lynch is a mother f*cking genius! Period.

Next to the Lost Pilot, this is the single best TV pilot I have ever seen. Twin Peaks was doing the "cinema on TV" thing a decade before The Sopranos. If the rest of the show is half as good as the pilot it will be amazing.

I hear the pie in the show is really good.

I assume this is some kind of inside joke I dont yet get?

I thought the pilot would have made it clear, but maybe not.

The FBI guy says he had some good cherry pie at some other town. Is that the reference? It seemed rather a toss-away line. Dont spoil it if it is more important though.

It's not a plot spoiler or anything, Special Agent Dale Cooper just loves cherry pie and damn fine coffee. And who doesn't?

I am loving it so far, except for these two actors who are really terrible.

Here's a tip. Approach the show as though it were a soap opera (because that's one of the staples of television the show satirizes) and suddenly any bad performance becomes immediately awesome and hilarious.

In it's first season it was also the #1 show on TV. Think about that for a while. Twin Peaks would have been canceled after one episode if it aired today. Back then it was the #1 show on TV.
