Damn good coffee, cherry pie, and the "big bang of auteur television" -- why Twin Peaks deserves to be a pop culture classic
In 1990, avant garde filmmaker David Lynch (Eraserhead
, The Elephant Man
, Blue Velvet
) and acclaimed television writer Mark Frost (Hill Street Blues
) teamed up to create a television show that would redefine what the medium could achieve in a one-hour drama. With Twin Peaks
, the duo entranced audiences with the seemingly idyllic town, its quirky characters, and a central mystery -- who killed Laura Palmer?
In a town like Twin Peaks, nothing is as it seems, and in Wrapped in Plastic
, pop culture writer Andy Burns uncovers and explores the groundbreaking stylistic and storytelling methods that have made the series one of the most influential and enduring shows of the past 25 years.
