For Christmas my aunt gave me the series Twin PeaksÂ on DVD. I had never seen it before, but I had certainly heard of it and was well aware of some of its infamous lines and Lynchian charades. After watching the first five minutes, I was hooked. Later in the episode I was introduced to a character named Dale Cooper. His perfectly coifed hair and boy scout attitude won me over and a new fangirl crush was born.
I must admit I’m normally the type of girl that goes after villains, rarely good guys, and even more rarely ones that apologize before cursing (how adorable). There is just something about Agent Cooper, though. Part of his charm is his penchant for local horticulture (“Douglas Firs!”), Tibet, and cherry pie. I also love his life philosophy.
