Back to Twin Peaks

Inspired by Gregory Arnott's recent article, I have been immersing myself into Twin Peaks. I am re-watching the original series on Netflix, then I plan to rewatch the movie Fire Walk With Me, then finally I will watch the 2017 season three revival (which I have never seen.)
Gregory mentioned to me the other day that he was rewatching the third episode of the first season, and while I wouldn't expect everyone to join me in my new obsession, certainly that episode is worth your time. (It has the famous scene in which Agent Cooper meets a dwarf and a character resembling Laura Palmer in a dream. It is still an astonishing scene.)
One aspect of Twin Peaks I find striking is the large number of people associated with it who are mainly known for the show. Where would Kyle MacLachlan be without Twin Peaks? Or composer Angelo Badamenti?
