  • Ok show, but this episode was a total rip off of Twin Peaks.

    Good girl from small, eccentric town goes missing and is not as perfect as everyone things she is. She shares a love interest with her best friend. She was killed by a creepy guy who tortured her friend in a cabin in the middle of the woods. Remind you of anything? This was a less wacky, hour long version of Twin Peaks. I believe they even audaciously named her "Kara Palmer" (compare to Twin Peaks: "Laura Palmer"). It was an ok show, but Jane is no Agent Cooper. I believe CBS produced Twin Peaks, so I guess it's their show to rip off.
