Anybody remember this show? It was only a 2 season show but it was great back in the early 90's, really paved the way for shows like the X-Files. A very underrated show.

One of my all time favorite shows. First season is amazing. It definitely paved the way for a lot of shows. It's also the show that made me a David Lynch fan.

Agent Cooper is hands down one of the greatest tv characters of all-time.

There's gold and it's haunting and haunting; it's luring me on as of old; Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting So much as just finding the gold; It's the great, big, broad land 'way up yonder, It's the forest where silence has lease; It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder, It's the stillness that fills me with peace.

Don't know about underrated - it was hugely popular.

 

To this day, never watched one episode.  David Lynch is definitely a love or hate kind of writer / director.

Great show. Petered off towards the end, but still pretty great in a weird way.

 

In a similar vein, there is a great creepy French series called The Returned.

It's about the dead coming back to life and trying to resume where things left off in a small mountain town. They have trouble and so do the living that lost them.

One is a 15 year old twin who's sister is now 19.

Another is an 8 year-old boy who was killed with his whole family 35 years ago by intruders. He come into contact with one of the robbers, who is now a town stalwart religious man.

Another is a serial killer who liked to eat his victims.

As long as you can handle subtitles - great, creepy atmospheric show. Excellent acting from adults and the kid actors as well.

One of the best shows I have seen in a long time.

 

They are making an American version, but I would watch the French one first.

I watched the first season of Les Revenants / The Returned with subs too. Great show. :rock:
