TV: Twin Peaks, Pilot and Ep. 2

Wow. What a show. I don't know what to say. It's part mystery, part melodrama, part dark comedy. The genre twisting alone is fantastic, but it's combined with hilarity, cinematic use of the camera, and some very creepy moments. I'm jazzed. I should save this comment until the end of the season, but did the folks making The Killing even watch Twin Peaks? I mean, every scene in this show, I have no frigging clue what's going to happen and I can't stop watching. This was on frigging CBS?

Watching the first couple episodes only confirms my suspicion that mystery is the hardest and most noble of all the cinematic genres.
