The Score: 10 out of 10

After Ronette Pulaski wanders across the Washington-Idaho state line, the FBI assigns a special agent to take command of the investigation at Twin Peaks. Special Agent Dale Cooper enters the scene as a genius detective on the order of Sherlock Holmes, who in spite of some humorous eccentricities, establishes himself quickly as a strong and competent lead investigator. The rest of the series primarily revolves around his investigation of Ronette's assault and Laura Palmer's murder.
Agent Cooper's Intro

"Diane, 11:30 AM, February 24th. Entering the town of Twin Peaks. It's 5 miles south of the Canadian border, 12 miles west of the state line. Never seen so many trees in my life. As W.C. Fields would say, 'I'd rather be here than Philadelphia.'"
David Lynch brought to Twin Peaks (1990-91) many actors from past projects, including his lead actor from Dune (1984) and Blue Velvet (1986), Kyle MacLachlan. Agent Cooper is easily the best role of MacLachlan's career, bringing an innocent and child-like sense of wonder to the part while never betraying the character's core strength and impressive intellect.
Agent Dale Cooper and Sheriff Harry S. Truman Form an Effective Partnership
Analogous to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson
Agent Cooper has been waiting for new leads on a murder case from a year earlier when another young woman named Teresa Banks was murdered in a town further south of Twin Peaks. Cooper believes Laura Palmer might be the second victim of the same murderer, so he jumps at the opportunity to look into her case. He soon discovers irrefutable similarities between the two murders, so he partners with Sheriff Truman indefinitely until he catches Laura's killer.

For a Reason Nobody Understands at First, Agent Cooper Investigates Ronette's Fingernails
Even Though She Already Had Her Nails Scraped for Skin Particles Earlier
Agent Cooper is the audience proxy, a stranger to the town who at first is unfamiliar with the townspeople and their social dynamics. But as his investigation continues, he becomes acquainted with everyone in town and gradually begins uncovering their secrets. David Lynch explained, "The murder of Laura Palmer was the center of the story, the thing around which all the show's other elements revolved – like a sun in a little solar system." In this analogy, Agent Cooper would be comparable to an astronomer who delves deeper and deeper into the mysteries surrounding Laura Palmer's murder.

Agent Cooper's investigation leads him down several concurrent paths, each providing new evidence leading him closer to Laura's killer. And as his understanding deepens about the townspeople and their individual secrets, he grows into a powerful ally for some and a dangerous liability for others. In this video clip below, you will find a contemporary puff piece on Twin Peaks. Kyle MacLachlan shares some interesting things about himself and the success he found as Agent Cooper.
Interview with Kyle MacLachlan

After Agent Cooper's completely unique introduction to the series, we weave in and out of all the other characters's stories once more as they become increasingly intertwined and complex. Donna Hayward wants to speak with James Hurley, Laura's secret boyfriend, but she cannot find him anywhere. She looks for him at the gas station owned by his uncle, Ed Hurley. In a tender exchange, Ed comforts Donna about the loss of her friend Laura and passes a message from James for her to meet him at the Road House tonight.

And in a Comic Moment, Ed Hurley's Wife Nadine Pops Out of their House Across the Street and Commands Ed with a Deranged Voice to Hang Up the New Drapes in the Living Room 
After Seeing How Thoroughly Whipped He is, Ed Laughs with Donna, "Guess I know how to pick 'em, too"
Donna's boyfriend Mike is the best friend of Bobby Briggs, who is Laura Palmer's ostensible boyfriend. Mike has been looking for Donna all day and wants her to join him at the police station in support of Bobby. Of course Donna is not concerned with supporting Bobby, who potentially killed Laura. But Mike yells at Donna to get in his car. Ed Hurley orders Mike to back off and leave Donna alone while they are on his property. But to cap off this moment of masculine behavior, Ed's wife Nadine yells at him and bosses him around in front of Donna.

Agent Cooper and Sheriff Truman Analyze Some of Laura Palmer's Personal Effects
Unable to Find a Key to Laura Palmer's Diary, Agent Cooper Breaks the Diary's Lock so He Can Read the Contents. Although this Action is Completely Rational and Justifiable, There's a Small Part of the Audience that Feels a Little Shocked and Uncomfortable with the Move.

Agent Cooper Frequently Reveals Important Facts Via His Recordings to Diane, an Anonymous Secretary Back at FBI Headquarters Who Helps Cooper Conduct His Business. Diane Never Appears on the Show, Making Her an Effective Narrative Device to Allow Cooper's Internal Thought Process to be Shared with the Audience
This is the First Time David Lynch Uses a Safety Deposit Key to Represent an Important Secret. He Will Do So Again in the Last Episode of the Series and Once More in Mulholland Dr. (2001)
Agent Cooper Informs Sheriff Truman that the Bag Containing the Safety Deposit Box Key Also Contains a White Powder Residue, Likely Cocaine
Sheriff Truman Cannot Believe Laura Could be Involved with Drugs. Cooper's Response: "Have you ever been surprised?" To Which Truman Responds: "You didn't know Laura Palmer." Cooper Politely Avoids an Argument and Carries on Professionally with His Investigation. But We Can Almost Feel Cooper's Thoughts: "Apparently, neither did you."
This brings us to an important theme of Twin Peaks. To nearly everyone else in town, Ed Hurley is a man's man, a morally centered man of principles who is not afraid to endanger himself to protect others. But when it comes to Ed's relationship with his wife Nadine, Ed Hurley is a coward. Ed can stand up against hoodlums, punks, criminals, and murderers, but the man is scared of his wife. Although we will need to wait until the Season 2 Premiere to learn why Ed married Nadine in the first place, we understand in the pilot that Ed Hurley is two different people. He is one way with his wife and a different way with others. Nearly everyone in Twin Peaks has secrets and leads a double life of one kind or another.

Double lives leads us to the concept of doppelgängers, ghostly counterparts of living persons, often representing evil alter egos. We can draw a correlation between this and the concept of the shadow developed by the psychoanalytic genius Carl Jung. Jung posited that the repressed desires and instincts of our subconscious follow us around in the background of our lives, like a shadow. The more we repress these desires in our conscious lives, the more dangerous and unwieldy our shadow self becomes. A fictionalized version of this concept can be seen in Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

As the Meeting Assembles, Sheriff Truman Names Different Prominent Citizens in Attendance. Cooper Asks About the Lady with the Log. Truman Responds, "We call her the Log Lady."

"All these crimes took place at night..."
Twin Peaks explores the concept of shadow selves to varying degrees. As the story progresses, we not only become familiar with all the main characters in town but also become acquainted with their doppelgängers. The dichotomy between their outward personas and shadow selves can be comedic, as with Ed Hurley, or extremely frightening with others. But at the end of the day, Twin Peaks asks the audience to look into the mirror and confront the person staring back.

They Bury the Secret
Choices between good and evil are personality defining, regardless of whether the consequences of those choices can be detected openly or can remain concealed in secret. There is more to the people of Twin Peaks than what you first suspect, and the pilot episode establishes this concept from the start. Throughout the course of the pilot, we learn of several secret love affairs, intense business rivalries, and backstabbing betrayals. In short, nearly every character in the pilot carries on a secret life in addition to their public life.

However, despite the frequent display of mankind's duality, Twin Peaks also showcases the best of what people are capable of doing. Although people can be multi-layered, they can also be remarkably sweet, simple, and straightforward with each other, too. And just because a character is good, does not make that person weak. Interestingly enough, the strongest characters on the show are the enlightened characters who regularly confront evil within themselves and yet choose to live in a balanced state of harmony.
After a Long Day's Work, the Characters in Twin Peaks Know How to Unwind
Lucy Gets to be a Part of their Conversation Even When She has to Remain at Her Desk

We Discover Catherine Martell and Ben Horne are Secretly Working Together
And Sheriff Truman and Josie Packard Look Where Laura Palmer's Body was Found Earlier that Morning
It Has Been About 24 Hours Since She was Killed. Most of the Earlier Episodes of Twin Peaks would Maintain the Pace of a Day of Narrative Time Per Episode
Many good-natured characters in Twin Peaks can be misinterpreted at first as idiotic, goofy, or silly, but really they just ascribe to more positive world views compared to the more conflicted characters. In the hands of lesser writers and directors in the series, characters like Pete Martell, Deputy Andy Brennan, and the Log Lady have the tendency to be unfairly dismissed or reduced to corny sideshows. But whenever David Lynch directs an episode, these same characters spark to life with passion and surprising intensity without resorting to simple caricatures.

She has a Psychic Vision of Someone Wearing Gloves Unearthing a Stone
And Taking the Other Half of Laura Palmer's Heart Locket
Sarah Palmer Wakes Up with a Shock and Screams Aloud at the Implications of Her Vision
Mark Frost and David Lynch scripted the best and strongest pilot ever aired on network television. The only surprise was how long it took the executives at ABC to realize what they had on their hands. After many internal debates, they greenlit Twin Peaks with a tentative first season order of just seven episodes. The executives felt they would need to test the waters before jumping in all the way. On April 08, 1990, Americans turned on their TV sets the night of Easter Sunday and were greeted with a beautiful depiction of the American way of life that gave us all a reason to be excited to watch television again.

  1. This is just great. Really like the analysis of the specific screens (like Cooper smashing the diary's lock, the interrogation of Bobby or Andy crying). And I see your perception of Audrey's trouble-making behaviour is similar to mine.

  2. This is like the best Lynch-o-pedia, blog, movie monument in history! Thank you :)

  3. In the last scene ( and also in the last picture above) when Sarah Palmer wakes up screaming you can see the reflection of Bob in the mirror!
