I'm a late comer to the TWIN PEAKS franchise since, well, I was twelve years old when the show was initially on the air and it wasn't until recently that I was able to watch it on Netflix. Nevertheless, I have since retroactively devoured a lot of the fandom and its lore. It was a show that had a big effect on my writing and helped create my Esoterrorism, I was a Teenaged Weredeer, and Rules of Supervillainy series. The TWIN PEAKS FAQ sets itself up as the definitive resource on the Twin Peaks s [...]

Really could have benefited from a once-over editing job, to catch missing words and typos and whatnot.Harry and Coop meet up with Hawk at Harold's, discovering a suicide note that reads, "J'ai un homme solitaire," translated by Coop as "I am a lonely soul." [p. 299](A funny typo, at least.)It also felt quite repetitive, frequently bringing up the same information across multiple chapters/sections.(What I'm trying to say: The content isn't as meaty as the page-count might lead you to believe.)Th [...]

Very interesting with a lot of inside scoop sand fun facts, but also a bit disorganized with some sentences nearly word-for-word from another section I already read 40 pages ago. Definitely good for references and overall refreshing of the series, but not necessarily a great "everything you should know" of the show.

I love the topic and adore the show, but I hate the typos and commentary of this big. The tone and voice of the writers of this book really turned me off. Apparently I want more facts and less opinions.

It took me a while to get through this a comprehensive review of the original Twin Peaks Seasons 1 and 2 as well as the film Fire Walk With Me. This is for true fans tons of detail about the characters, episodes, the film, etc more than a casual fan would ever want to know, though!

A great resource if you're brushing up for the new Twin Peaks series that's starting in May. Detailed character profiles, an episode guide, a timeline and lots of discussion on symbolism will satisfy any Peaks Freak.

A few interesting trivia tidbits I didn't know about, but mainly felt like the writers were trying to hit a word count.

"She's dead. Wrapped in plastic." With those five words, Twin Peaks had me hooked. What transpired over those 29 episodes was like nothing I had ever seen on television up to that point. It was my sophomore year of high school, and the mystery of who killed Laura Palmer consumed my imagination completely. I clearly, clearly remember my reaction to the murder of Maddy Ferguson. It was the most shocking thing I had ever witnessed on tv. My jaw was on the floor in shock and surprise. In 2017, it st [...]

Can I be honest?I don’t think anyone has really asked a lot of questions about the TV series “Twin Peaks” since the theatrical sequel, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me flopped at the movies in 1992.There. I’m glad I got that off my chest.But that said, my wife and I were big fans of the original run of the TV show on ABC in 1990 and forced ourselves to watch the entire second season, even though it wasn’t very good, to be honest. And we skipped Fire Walk with Me altogether.And yet – hav [...]

Immediate Review: A decent summarization of the original series Bushman does a fine job at going into some light history of the series as well as doing an episode by episode breakdown. His writing style is casual working his own viewpoint and comedic takes on certain aspects of the series that sometimes work, and sometimes don't resulting in a serviceable book for new fans of Twin Peaks. Other than not providing much behind-the-scenes information in terms of interviews with cast members, the boo [...]

Ho boy. This was a real treat to read. Let me start off with - if you have any lingering questions about Twin Peaks, and Fire Walk With Me, then pick up this book. It's interesting, lots of wry humor, and it's pretty honest about what is known definitely behind the scenes, as well as all the action that happened on screen to make Twin Peaks what it really is. I really enjoyed the tidbits about what was actually scripted versus what was filmed, and some of the reasons for why things happened the [...]

No FAQs present and the subtitle of 'all that's left to know about a place both wonderful and strange' is misleading since the book makes great use of phrases such as 'no, we don't know what that means either'.Still, it's an easy read, will make you want to watch the show all over again and is a primer for the return of the series in the near future (colour me excited). Just don't expect to be overly enlightened if you're a fan.

I've read a fair number of books on my favorite TV series, and, despite the rather lackluster title of "FAQ", this is actually one of the best. Not only an excellent summary of both the series and prequel movie, David Bushman's book delves fairly deeply into the many characters (both important and minor), and discusses many theories and suppositions as to what it all means. All this is done in a style that manages to be simultaneously respectful and quite funny in its occasional irreverence. For [...]
