"the owls are not what they seem"

The Prom Queen.

The Dwarf.

The Log Lady.

The Sherrif.

The Giant.

The Biker.

The Psychopathic Trucker.

The FBI Agent.

Bob.

The terrifying cosmic struggle between supernatural good and evil.

Remember life before the X-Files?

Twin Peaks.

I have to say, I'd forgotten most of this show, except that it was possibly the strangest, and at times one of the most frightening things ever to appear on TV.

Very very slow pace, interspersed with the occasional shocked and perplexed laugh, gruesome murder, and absurdist surrealism.
