Looks like GenX has a few trust issues! Although growing up in a child-hostile era could have something to do with that...

Twin Peaks

Something that passed me by completely - but pretty much defined the early 1990s if the internet is to be believed... It's not that I've never heard of the phenomena Twin Peaks, it's just that back then I was way too cheap to pay for cable or whatever it took to get your TV to produce something watchable. Or it could be I didn't even have a TV set. I remember freaking out one night because I was sick of not having a TV, and being pregnant at the time, meant my life was pretty boring/wholesome - thus the freak out. Anyway, I wound up at the Circuit City on Van Ness (it's gone now)- and bought one on the spot. I still didn't watch Twin Peaks, though. I do remember watching a documentary about Mozu, the Snow Monkey - which ended up costing me $125 - because at the end I was in tears due to the little Mozu's heroic performance. The $125 was the donation to the local PBS which got me on their mailing list and a video of Mozu the Snow Monkey.

You might like Twin Peaks, though... Everybody else seemed to...
