Same here. Mrs Fitter and I had a sort of ritualistic devotion to it. I can't think of any other TV series to which I've had any similar affinity. Everything about it was pretty much flawless, from start to finish. So many memorable scenes, even after all this time. My favourite: probably the "exorcism" of Leland Palmer, when the sprinklers came on in the station, "Leland, you've been a good vehicle"..."It's time to shuffle off to Buffalo", etc. (I'd never heard that expression before).

I can pinpoint the year (1990), because I procured an "I killed Laura Palmer" sticker, which I put on my locker at work. I left that workplace in early 91, and when I returned to the same workplace in a different role three years later, my sticker was still right there. When Mrs Fitter and I got married in 1994, a friend gave us the entire 2 series video-collection as a wedding present. (Believe me, that's quite a lot of videos). Ho, happy days.
