  1. Still Wrapped In Plastic: ‘Twin Peaks’ Turns 20

    Back in the summer of 1989, I was invited to a sneak preview of a TV pilot. I didn’t know anything about it, but the moment I heard its opening theme music, I got shivers that didn’t go away. This was TV the way I dreamed it could be — funny, menacing, mysterious. In fact, it was so weird and wonderful that, as I walked from the theater, I remember saying, "Too bad no network will ever put it on the air."
