When the television show Twin Peaks began airing in 1990 it didn’t just push boundaries, it shattered them completely. A mix of murder mystery, nighttime soap opera and dark comedy all rolled into one, it was like nothing ever seen before on network television. By the end of the first season Twin Peaks was an escapable pop cultural phenomenon and today a piece of its DNA is in nearly every TV show. On this episode of History of the 90s host Kathy Kenzora takes you on a journey to the town of Twin Peaks.
