Re: I just started watching 'Twin Peaks' and I'm hooked.

Season 2 opener has that bit in the hospital where Big Ed recounts the day he shot Nadine's eye out ... The way Ferrer's character is struggling against losing it, tearing up, is one of the funniest things I've ever seen on television. I practically start laughing again just typing this.

Between that and his 'moment' with Truman, Ferrer's Albert is probably my favorite character of that whole era.

One adjunct to the series that has not been brought up yet is the MY LIFE MY TAPES book, which is excerpts from Cooper's tape recordings, dating back to his youth. You DO NOT want to read this before you get through the whole series, but man, there is a LOT of food for thought about the nature of evil and how it manifests in man.

Funny as hell a times, too, especially the drawings Cooper makes of himself after being up for 48 hrs straight.

I have probably read this little book more than a dozen times, much more fun that the ultra-serious meta-textual ones that came years later.
