    One thought on “Fan Phenomena: Twin Peaks”

    1. These essays were criminally depthless. They were like the outlines for more involved papers—full of information, easily gleaned from the show, that was never elaborated on. The accompanying photographs were really small and some of them were too dark. Also, there weren't enough of them. You'd think in an essay about, say, Audrey Horne's outfits there would be a lot of large photographs. But no.I was quite interested in the essay about feminism in Twin Peaks, written by a gender studies profes [...]

    2. How much did I learn? Less than I'd wanted to. How much was I enjoyed? Plenty of fun time-wasting material here, though some articles are more of a waste than fun. There are better elaborations of Twin Peaks out there.

    3. I realize this book has aims other than the more scholarly collections I'm reading on Twin Peaks right now, but even by contrast with the more fannish/general reader works, this one just doesn't offer much by way of insights into the series and prequel.

    4. My friends will know that I am somewhat OBSESSED with "Twin Peaks" - the phenomenal, if short-lived, TV series of the early '90's. This is one of the best books that I've read regarding the show. Each chapter is written by different authors - all have given a great deal of thought to the show - and each deals with a different aspect of the series. One extremely interesting chapter discusses the prequel theatrical movie "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me", and paints it in an entirely new, and fascin [...]

    5. Gearing up for the release of the special edition Blu-Ray that includes 90+ minutes of previously unreleased footage from the film/prequel. So I'm reading everything I can on the cult classic tv show and extremely under appreciated film.This book is perfect for hardcore devotees of the series who 25 years later are still looking for clues and trying to unravel the mystery. But, as is usual with all things Lynch related, for every book and/or article I can get my hands on, it only leads me to wan [...]

    6. Just finished watching the series for the second time and after reading this book I want to go watch it again! Pretty decent collection of essays, especially the last four about dualism, location, dreaming, and "Gothic daemon BOB". There's so much to discuss about this show, look forward to digging deeper the next time I see it

    7. Kinda already covered all these topics about 12 years ago. Oh well, at least it got me wanting to watch the source material again.

    8. Interesting, for new fans who are curious about the various reactions Twin Peaks has inspired. Some of these essays will make you see aspects of the series and movie in a different light.
