"Twin Peaks" available to stream on Netflix

The hero of David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" seemed simultaneously one step ahead of the goings-on in the town and always trying to catch up.

About four minutes after that you'll hear Jack Nance say, "She's dead. Wrapped in plastic." And so begins "Twin Peaks," a show only kind of about the dead body that opens the series.
