    I have never seen any Twin Peaks episodes before but have looked forward to the DVD release for some time now. I am looking forward very much to watching the Pilot (which I have) followed by the first season box when it arrives. What I would like to know from other Twin Peaks fans is when I should watch the film "Fire walk with me" I know that this is a prequel but I remember reading a while ago that it is best not to watch this before the Pilot or the series. I have avoided trawling the many Twin Peaks websites as I don't want to find out anything that might spoil it and i'd prefer to watch the series knowing as little as possible. Any help would be most appreciated.

    Happy New Year to you all

    Matt

    Matthew - don't even THINK about touching Fire Walk with Me until you are about a third of the way through the second season...which isn't even out on DVD yet. Stay away from the box, and from reviews - you could very seriously ruin your enjoyment of the show itself. At least in the way that I enjoyed it.

    Fire Walk With Me should be the last thing you see.

    It takes a season and a half to find out who kills Laura Palmer.

    The killer is quite obvious in FWWM. DON'T watch it!

    Note: Do NOT watch all of the "Introduction to David Lynch" it contains what could be considered a fairly major spoiler at the end (when that Proff Dude comes back on to talk about Lynch's violent and dark sexual imagery).
