Twin Peaks, Pilot

"Twin Peaks in my opinion probably marked one of the highest points of television drama", writes Mark Boydell in his dvd-review of the tv serie published by DVD Times. And he adds: "it may be the last time we'll see a great director [David Lynch] being given full artistic control over as wide a canvas as a TV series and the result is flabbergasting. The characters are fully developed yet unusually interesting; the setting - the true lead character IMO - becomes so familiar to us it seems like our back garden (albeit a very scary one) and it features some of the most memorable scenes ever committed to celluloid: who can erase the Red Lounge and the Man from Another Place from their memory?"

So, diving into the Twin Peaks universe makes a lot of fun. Rewatching this serie it comes to my mind how strongly Lara Flynn Boyle is acting as Donna Hayward, the best friend of the late Laura Palmer. With this post followed by many others in the future I provide screencaps of the best scenes starring Lara. I apologize for the not-so-good caps quality. But unfortunately, the dvd version from Paramount Home Entertainment doesn't provide a ... let me say ... excellent picture quality. Anyway, let's start with the Pilot of Twin Peaks.

To Lara:
I`m from Russia, Siberia, visited this page after watching ALL the "Twin Peaks" :) Third time in my life. It is magic.

Thank you for playing in it.
