Book Review: Wrapped in Plastic

wrappedinplasticI’ve heard a lot of things about Twin Peaks. I’ve never actually watched it, but since it is coming back in 2016, it might be in my best interest to get myself all caught up so I can check out the re-boot! (I was a bit too young to be watching it when it first premiered in 1990)  It’s on Hulu – for free – in case anyone else wants to watch or re-watch as well!

Wrapped in Plastic gives a look at this drama and how groundbreaking it was and how it has since become a cult classic. If you are a fan of the show or have any interest in learning more about it before the reboot in 2016, check out this book.  I know it has certainly peaked (see what I did there) my interest in the show and I am off to hulu to watch it now…

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.

 

About the Book

In 1990, avant garde filmmaker David Lynch (Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Dune, Blue Velvet) and acclaimed television writer Mark Frost (Hill Street Blues) teamed up to create a television show that would redefine what the medium could achieve in a one-hour drama. With Twin Peaks, the duo entranced audiences with the seemingly idyllic town, its quirky characters, and a central mystery — who killed Laura Palmer? In a town like Twin Peaks, nothing is as it seems, and in Wrapped in Plastic, pop culture writer Andy Burns uncovers and explores the groundbreaking stylistic and storytelling methods that have made the series one of the most influential and enduring shows of the past 25 years.
