    I must admit that when i first heard of this show, Harper's Island/Twin peaks came to mind. While, i am sure that there are small influences from many shows that have come before, i think that this is a pretty good show. Of course, this is just my opinion but i found myself drawn in from the first minute of the premier. There is something about a mystery show that grabs me by my shirt and keeps me watching. I must admit that they stacked it nicely in how they gave us a glimpse of the townspeople and the world in which they live in.moreless

    • Henley claims to be from Snoqualmie, Washington. This is an allusion to the television series Twin Peaks. Parts of the pilot episode and the feature film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me were filmed there, and stock footage of Snoqualmie Falls and the neighboring Snoqualmie Lodge was used to represent the town's hotel The Great Northern Lodge.
