Twin Peaks - I love Dale Cooper and his nutty approach to investigating the murder - throwing rocks at things and using dreams. It wasn't until I read the first comment on this blog post that I realized why he does what he does. Basically, it's all a parody of Sherlock Holmes and his rational, logical ilk. They claim to use science and rationality, but everything they do is based on insight and illogical leaps that happen to be true. Cooper uses the least rational investigating techniques on Earth, and he's equally as correct. It puts a new spin on his character - maybe he's actually Genre Savvy, and knows no matter what he does everything he does will lead him closer to the killer - randomfanboy
Take a good, long look at the opening title screen. The outline of the misty mountain behind the Twin Peaks sign forms what looks like a woman's face, looking up. The shot is framed, from the beginning of the show, to represent Laura looking out from inside the black lodge.
