Yep - David Lynch's original twisted series: TWIN PEAKS. This is the show that made programs like AMERICAN HORROR STORY possible. The original creepy who-done-it, TWIN PEAKS is clearly an influence on FX's modern series, with many similar, supernatural parallels. It will be interesting to see in what direction this new show takes now that the supremely weird groundwork has been laid (how can they get even weirder without it seeming utterly preposterous?) But in the end, one can't help but wonder why classic shows - particularly the first season in which Lynch was directly involved - like TWIN PEAKS get the axe. A genre-defining classic, I guess only the good die young...
