It is probably my favourite show ever

Yes it does contain voilence, sex, dinking and drug taking, but its a great show.

Its not going to scar your teen, they're more mature than you give them credit for

CHEESY

Awful cheesy show with stupid dialogue and terrible 80s music. As for content, there is lots of kissing and "romance", marital infidelity, prostitution, rape, and women in sexual costumes. Another unsettling theme is how often adults are shown hitting on and having love interests with high school students.

Surreal Quirky Small Town Mystery Strikes a balance between being dark and light-hearted

Violence: Most of the story focuses on the investigation of the serial-killings of older teenage girls. Their dead bodies are seen several times, though with no graphic detail at all. Occasional on-screen violence, mild to moderate, very fake looking beatings and shootings. A few scenes of moderate injury detail. The plot can sometimes be very dark, dealing with subjects such as rape and murder. Some episodes tread into horror territory. | Language: Very tame, damn, hell, *ss, b*stard. | Beyond some passionate (and usually fully-clothed) making out there's not much in the visual department. An early plotline involves a brothel, but no sexual activity is shown. Some innuendo, little overt talk. Verbal references to incest and rape. Side-plot involves a character's pregnancy and who will be the father. | Drugs: Some scenes of characters smoking or drinking. References to drug use and smuggling, including teenagers (portrayed in a negative light). In one episode bags of cocaine are seen.

The Best TV Show of All Time

This show is terrifying, hilarious, endearing, heartbreaking, haunting, sweet, uncomfortable, and strange all in one. It is also iconic. This is the show that changed TV forever. There would be no Breaking Bad, no X-Files, no Sopranos, etc. without Twin Peaks. The characters are interesting and original, the acting is spot on, the shots are gorgeous, the music is haunting...you just can't get better than this show. I watched it for the first time when I was about 14 or 15. I think that is an appropriate age. While there is no cursing, nudity, etc. some of the themes are pretty heavy, there is discussion of drugs/prostitution and there are definitely some scenes that will give you nightmares (at any age). (Also, please note that my review is of the original Twin Peaks- Seasons 1 & 2. The 2017 Return doesn't even come close and I would avoid it unless you prefer Eraserhead-era David Lynch).

Fascinating series by David Lynch. Ambiguous and somewhat unsatisfactory finale, but hopefully the new series will answer those questions.

A review

This is a great show. I agree with the main review about the 14+ age rating but this show is strange, some times funny, brutal, fascinating, complex, and mind bending all at once! The ending of the original two-seasons is not very good but the upcoming 2017 season should clear that up. Seriously, watch this show.

Just amazing.

This show is amazing if your kid can live with the mild profanity, distrubing images, violence, mild mature themes like prositution, murder, r*pe, drugs. Also a most freaky ending which won't be addressed till next year on showtime.
