The lyrics for all five songs were written by Lynch. This places it in the Salmo-Priest Wilderness. Lynch and Frost started their location search in Snoqualmie, Washington , on the recommendation of a friend of Frost.
They found all of the locations that they had written into the pilot episode. Many exterior scenes were filmed in wooded areas of Malibu, California. The soap opera show-within-the-show Invitation to Love was not shot on a studio set, but in the Ennis House , an architectural landmark designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles. The idea came to Lynch one afternoon after touching the side of a hot car left out in the sun: My hands were on the roof and the metal was very hot.
The Red Room scene leapt into my mind. For the rest of the night I thought only about The Red Room. When the series was picked up, Lynch decided to incorporate some of the footage; in the third episode, Cooper, narrating the dream, outlines the shot footage which Lynch did not incorporate, such as Mike shooting Bob and the fact that he is 25 years older when he meets Laura Palmer's spirit. In an attempt to avoid cancellation, the idea of a Cooper possessed by Bob came up and was included in the final episode, but it was cancelled even before the episode was aired.

Initially, the show received a positive response from TV critics. Tom Shales , in The Washington Post , wrote, "Twin Peaks disorients you in ways that small-screen productions seldom attempt.

The first season contained only eight episodes including the two-hour pilot episode , and was considered technically and artistically revolutionary for television at the time, and geared toward reaching the standards of film. Lynch and Frost's control lessened in the second season, corresponding with what is generally regarded as a decrease in the show's quality once the identity of Laura Palmer's murderer was revealed.
The aforementioned "water cooler effect" put pressure on the show's creators to solve the mystery. Although they claimed to have known from the series' inception the identity of Laura's murderer,  Lynch never wanted to solve the murder, while Frost felt that they had an obligation to the audience to solve it.

According to Frost, Lara Flynn Boyle, who was romantically involved with Kyle MacLachlan at the time, had effectively vetoed the Audrey-Cooper relationship, forcing the writers to come up with an alternative.
I was not happy about it. Lynch expressed his regret at having resolved the Laura Palmer murder, saying he and Frost had never intended for the series to answer the question and that doing so "killed the goose that laid the golden eggs". Lynch blamed network pressure for the decision to resolve the Palmer storyline prematurely. The episode's plot is an homage to the Twin Peaks pilot, where the characters of Psych investigate the death of a young girl in a small town called "Dual Spires".
The episode also contains several references to the original show. Coulson and Ray Wise. Prior to the airing of the episode, a special event at the Paley Center for Media was held where the actors from both shows discussed the episode.
If you wanted to get that confession, the answer is yes. I loved that show. They only did 30 episodes. Kerry [Ehrin] and I thought we'd do the 70 that are missing.
