2. Kath and I have been catching up on some classic TV that we've never seen; in late December it was "Fawlty Towers", and right now it's Season 1 of "Twin Peaks". As a first time viewer of Twin Peaks, I must say that I'm shocked and amazed that this show was on network television in 1990; if this were a brand-new show, it would still be ahead of its time. It's dated, but wonderfully so, and all the performances are spot-on. We are both infatuated with it, although we've heard from numerous sources that Season 2 is pretty terrible in comparison. A couple quick observations:
- Detective Truman is a dead ringer for former Yankee OF Paul O'Neill
- If they were to remake this show today, the dopey sherriff would be played by Owen Wilson
- The funeral scene? OMFG.
