Quirky and brilliant
Twin Peaks is one of those shows that has you guessing at every step of the way. And not just because of the murder mystery. No, instead Twin Peaks has you guessing about every plot detail, what the well-written and off-beat characters are going to do next, and whether the scene is going to be terrifying as hell or not. It has an atmosphere like no other TV show ever made, and the direction is gorgeous, with the Angelo Badalamenti soundtrack creating an air of sophistication and terror. Simply put, there's nothing else like it on television, and I don't think their ever will be. The show never really has many problematic moments involving sex and alcohol, but there are the seedier parts of Twin Peak's underbelly, such as the prostitution, drug use and domestic violence, especially with characters such as Benjamin Horne and Leo Johnson. However, what stands out much more is the utterly terrifying sequences involving the demonic entity, Killer BOB. Teens should be able to handle it, but fear may get the better of them.
