With piles of donuts and wool plaid, armloads of logs and cups of coffee, Twin Peaks portrays the Pacific Northwest as cozy but surreal. Who wouldn’t want to share a slice of pie with Cooper or spend a night at the Great Northern Hotel? As along as I can curl up on the sidelines, I’m happy to watch the mystery unfold in all its melodramatic glory.
