|11:36 pm - Who wants to fight about Twin Peaks?|
Who? Who? Do you want to fight about Twin Peaks? Huh? I'll take on the lot of yous.
Current Mood: surly
Current Music: Fear of Pop -- Blink
It's a combination of talking to Renee (sorry Renee, really!) and the general indifference that most people have to the show due to its age.
Lets fight then, you take the position that twin peaks is cool aand I'll say it's very cool.
Yeah? You keep talkin' like that and you're gonna end up wrapped in plastic.
Yeah, bring it on b**ch :)
Nothing but big talk. Let's see what you got.
Yeah. Sure. Why the hell not. I'll uh.. go first?
Laura Palmer is still alive!
OR am I missing something?
No she's not! But my cousin looks just like her!
Sure, I'll take the position that I want the second season out on DVD, and you'll take the position that YOU want the second season out on DVD (but only if you really do)
Oh yes. The second season on DVD would make me very, very happy indeed. Until then, I know a place where I can get a DVD-R copy of the laserdiscs for $60, and I just keep putting it off.
Lantry said I should watch that. What is it, exactly?
Don't get him started. Of course, it's my fault this all started in the first place!

Simple, boring explanation:
Twin Peaks is sort of a soap opera that ran during primetime on ABC in 1990 and '91. I think the plot would be best described as Northern Exposure meets The X-Files (in fact, those shows owe a great deal to Twin Peaks, and both of them featured multiple references to it). It was innovative and groundbreaking, but lasted only two seasons due to mismanagement by the network and the unwillingness of the show's creators to "dumb it down."
The plot kicks off with the discovery of the homecoming queen's plastic-wrapped body and delves deep into the bizzare undercurrents running beneath the placid surface of the tiny, northwestern, Mom/Bible/Apple Pie-loving town of Twin Peaks. Who killed Laura Palmer? Who or what is the mysterious Bob? What is the hideous cosmic secret hidden by the concept of creamed corn? Does Norma make the best cherry pie ever, or what? These and other thrilling questions are explored but left generally unanswered in the unfinished masterpiece that is Twin Peaks!
I don't think I've ever seen Twin Peaks. I just know it's an old show. From the 80s? 70s?
