Twin Peaks starts off like a regular every day murder mystery. It slowly deviates from this genre and drags the viewer into a world of the paranormal and the unexplained.
One of the unique plot devices that Twin Peaks employs is that one of the main characters is dead. This works in favour of the storyline, because it encourages the viewer to imagine for themselves many aspects of Laura Palmer's personality.
Twin Peaks also manages to mix in a suitable amount of comic relief, from a cross-dressing David Duchovny, to an FBI Agent with a ridiculous hearing loss.
Twin Peaks is definitely a town where everyone has a secret, and is worth a watch.
