A surreal cult favorite about the investigation into the murder of a high-school homecoming queen in a Pacific Northwest lumber town. Cocreated by filmmaker David Lynch, who also directed two episodes, the drama was a mysterious and mystical (when it wasn't merely murky) excursion into the dark side of human nature, rife with sex, violence, dream sequences and a gallery of bizarre characters. It was risky and provocative, but not everyone's cup of damn fine coffee and it was gone in a year.
