Twin Peaks ran for two seasons in the early nineties. It was a new kind of soap opera. It was full of romance, cheating, lying and drama yet added a new twist to night time dramas. With its mysterious and intriguing characters it is impossible to figure out the motives behind any of their actions or what will happen as the story unfolds. In its short time on TV this show became a cult classic that spawned the Hollywood move Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me which ties into the whole story and explains things that the TV show left out.
