Twin Peaks DVD|
One of the most influential TV shows of the 1990s, the first series of Twin Peaks has lost none of its quirky and queasy power to get under your skin and haunt your dreams. Without its groundbreaking mix of convoluted plotting, complex character interactions, surreal fantasy sequences and a continuous story arc, we would probably not have had The X-Files, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under or even The League of Gentlemen. So brew up a pot of some "damn fine coffee", dig into some cherry pie, and lose yourself in David Lynch and Mark Frost's murder mystery-soap opera, which unfolds, in one character's words, "like a beautiful dream and terrible nightmare all at once". Twin Peaks was a pop culture phenomenon, for this first series at least, until the increasingly bizarre twists and maddening teases so confounded audiences that they lost interest in just who killed Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). This series was also a career peak for most of its eclectic ensemble cast, including Kyle MacLachlan as straight-arrow FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, Michael Ontkean as local Sheriff Harry S Truman, Sherilyn Fenn as bad girl Audrey Horne, Peggy Lipton as waitress Norma Jennings and Catherine Coulson as the Log Lady. On the DVD: Twin Peak, Series 1 comes as a four-disc set that contains the original pilot plus the first season's seven episodes (inexplicably, the pilot episode was omitted on the American Region 1 DVD release, but is reinstated here). Special features include episode introductions by the Log Lady, commentaries by assorted episode directors (but not Lynch), and features from the archives of the fanzine Wrapped in Plastic. The 4:3 picture has been digitally remastered, and is now accompanied by a Dolby 5.1 soundtrack. --Donald Liebensonfrom£8.59 | RRP:

The first season (including pilot) of David Lynch's landmark murder mystery television series 'Twin Peaks'. Twin Peaks (population 51,201) lies just 5 miles from the Canadian border, a sleepy everytown USA where everyone's lives intersect with everyone else's. The town wakes up one morning to find one of its brightest young inhabitants, beautiful Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) murdered and wrapped in plastic down by the river. Local police Harry S. Truman (Michael Ontkean) and tearful Deputy Andy are out of their depth with such a murder case and a FBI agent is assigned to the case. Youthful, charismatic and somewhat otherworldy in his approach to policing, Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) arrives to try to solve the case. Cooper's appearance causes ripples in the small town and in turn he discovers that Twin Peaks is a small town full of secrets. Aided by the ever-stoic Harry, Agent Cooper starts to uncover Laura's double-life, high-achieving student and dutiful daughter by day, but morally corrupt partygirl by night. It seems that no-one is entirely innocent in their relationship to the dead-girl. Cooper regularly files reports via dictaphone cassette to 'Diane' at FBI regional headquarters, but is he getting any closer to the killer, and will his department allow him to stay on the case with the 'evidence' pointing to a supernatural killer?
