Trivia

The unofficial title of this episode, Zen, Or The Skill To Catch A Killer, is a bit of a misnomer. Cooper's interest is in Tibetan Buddhism. While both Zen and Tibetan Buddhism fall under the mantle of Mahayana Buddhism, they are in fact quite different. See more »

Goofs

When the Horne brothers go to the One Eyed jacks by boat, the scene is running too fast, visible when you observe the movements of Ben . Matter of fact it is not a real goof as David Lynch liked to protect natural environment by shooting scenes like this slower as needed just to speed them up later. See more »

So far, the series has been really great. It is captivating with very interesting characters with mysterious reasons. Episode 3 shows a dream sequence which I have to say, is one of the best scenes I have ever seen on television. The dream sequence is wonderfully written and directed. It has the atmosphere and the tone of a motion picture, and it certainly has the famous Lynchian feeling to it. 3 episodes in, and this series is addicting and very, very well written and directed. It makes most shows out there seem like filler compared to this. I will happily continue to watch and enjoy Twin Peaks, because it serves interesting story lines every episode so far.
