So this is how I have spent my evenings, lately; memorizing the circumstances around the killing of prom queen Laura Palmer in rural Twin Peaks.
'Twin Peaks' was groundbreaking 20 years ago, and the magic still operates. Even my extremely cautious 15-year-old allowed herself to be wrapped up in the spell-binding universe conjured up by David Lynch and Mark Frost.
As often, Lynch delves into the crack between respectable citizens' respectable facades and those very same citizens' shabbier insides. As often, his probing has a truly magnetic quality to it.
