“The Owls are not what they seem.”

Imagine walking into the Red Room… Not in your dreams or TP-geek fantasies, but in real life. How would you respond? Would you be able to predict your own outcome? I want to say that Dale Cooper didn’t, but looking back at the dream he had at the very beginning, did he know all this time what was about to happen?

I’ve just finished watching the very last episode of Twin Peaks (for the first time mind you). The ending is slick, it’s clever, it’s brilliant and ultimetely – horrifying. In a good sense. I know I’m not making any sense here, but hey, the show doesn’t either. Besides, the less you know, the better.

To be perfectly honest with you, I wasn’t all that impressed with Twin Peaks at first, after watching an episode or two of the series. Fortunetely as the show progressed, I had a change of heart. In the end, I too will conclude that this show is a must-see.

Here is a list of reasons why you should watch the cult series and also a couple of phenomenons that become clearer to you while watching the show:

– you begin to enjoy listening to the opening theme
– you’ll witness realistic escapism at its best
– you get to see a backwards-talking midget dance funky
– you start to fall in love with Lynch’s disturbing vision
– you get to see a giant talking in riddles
– you’ll write down the most absurd quotes as your all time favorites
– you agree upon, like most TP followers, that Bob indeed is one of the scariest, fucked-up villains you’ve ever seen
– you will become increasingly suspicious of owls in real life
– you start caring for the most unexpected characters
– you’ll start saying “damn!” in every statement you make (note: Cooper)
Р no matter your sexual orientation, you will eventually develop a crush for Audrey Horne
