The binge payoff
In addition to being a murder mystery, Twin Peaks uncovers the secrets and darkness often lying right beneath a bright, virtuous surface. Whether it’s a double life involving drugs and prostitution, or an evil demon using someone as an unwitting host, there is always more to a person than first assumed.
While Twin Peaks features its fair share of creepy moments, the surreal aspect of the series also lends to moments of quirky humor. And Lynch's humor and horror pair surprisingly well with one another.
