With AMC's recent hit murder mystery The Killing, the creators' decision to delay the killer's identity has pissed damn near every viewer off; in the early '90s brain-scrambler Twin Peaks, however, the whodunit factor is far less important.
What's most important about co-creator David Lynch's bewilderingly strange psychodrama, about an FBI agent (Kyle MacLachlan) investigating a prom queen's slaying in the world's batshittiest town, is that its central mystery is tucked beneath an overcoat of gonzo horror and countless WTF moments. Like American Horror Story after it, Twin Peaks is more about the experience than the actual narrative.
