Twin Peaks, David Lynch

by Lowen Howard

1990. TV Series. The pilot episode to Lynch’s late 80’s/early 90′ thriller drama Twin Peaks is about as close to perfect as anything I’ve seen. Blond haired, blue eyed, Laura Palmer–the most upstanding, popular, athletic, intelligent, attractive, high school girl in town–has been found dead, wrapped in plastic sheet on the bank of a river.

Why? Well, the first hint is the show’s tagline: “In this town, nobody is innocent”.
