17 years ago today......... Some Norwegian TP memories

Postby MysteryMan » Sat Nov 17, 2007 2:28 pm

Tonight, Saturday 17th of November, exactly 17 years ago both to the date and day, was my first encounter with Twin Peaks. The first episode (aka the pilot) aired on Norwegian TV Saturday 17th of November, 1990. That is where I was born and grew up. I was 15 years old and had only read about the TV series in the papers that week and wasn't really sure what to expect. I remember in Norway's biggest newspaper they had a headline that said "TV series that says sex". Naturally, I was intrigued. Looking back, I am very surprised my parents let me stay up watching it with them. However I don't think any of us knew what to expect, as we weren't familiar with any of David Lynch's work from before. at that time I think I had only vaguely heard about "Blue Velvet". Anyway, from the first tunes emananting from the TV set of the Twin Peaks Theme next to the beautiful shots from locations in TP with the credits over it, I was sold. It was love at first. I was intrigued with everything in the series....

Here are the air dates for the remaining episodes in Norway:

Friday 23/11: Episode 1
Saturday 24/11: Episode 2
Friday 30/11: Episode 3
Saturday 1/12: Episode 4
Friday 7/12: Episode 5
Saturday 8/12: Episode 6
Friday 14/12: Episode 7

Then it took a little break with Christmas just around the corner and returned with the new season just at the beginning of the new year...1991:

Friday 4/1: Episode 8 (including a 10-minute recap of everything that happned in the first season which I have sadly never seen again anywhere....)
Friday 11/1: Episode 9

Then no episode on 18/1 as our King Olav died on that day and showing TP would understandably not be appropriate... Instead we got a double episode on 25/1....

Friday 25/1: Episodes 10+11 combined
Friday 1/2: Episode 12
Friday 8/2: Episode 13
Friday 15/2: Episode 14
Friday 22/2: Episode 15
Friday 1/3: Episode 16
Friday 8/3: Episode 17
Friday 15/3: Episode 18
Friday 22/3: Episode 19
Friday 29/3: Episode 20
Friday 5/4: Episode 21
Friday 12/4: Episode 22
Friday 19/4: Episode 23
Friday 26/4: Episode 24
Friday 3/5: Episode 25
Friday 10/5: Episode 26
Friday 17/5: Episode 27

Again there was a break in the schedule and TP didn't return to Norwegian TV until June as they were not allowed to show the remaining 2 episodes until after it had premiered on American television...

Friday 14/6: Episode 28
Friday 21/6: Episode 29

Can't wait to get my hands on the new gold dvd box set now to relive the mystery.....

Cool! I love time travels like this. I was a bit too young at the time (9 years old; but a girl I knew, born the same year, was hooked). I remember my parents had a major row after my dad let me watch Bergerac around the same time. Poirot was okay, though. :)

Interesting that it was postponed because of Olav's death. You have a good memory.

PS: "TV-serie som sier sex" sounds like Dagbladet. Sadly the terrible (and rampant) pun of the headline is lost on the non-Norwegian speakers. :)

I think it was VG who had that headline as a matter of fact.

I think I have a rather selective memory actually. Always been able to remember down to the smallest details with the things that really interest me.

Det måtte være enten Dagbladet eller VG. Jeg hørte faktisk uttrykket "...som sier seks" for første gang i sin egentlige betydning nå nylig. "En plate som sier seks", for eksempel. Ikke mye brukt lenger, men bastarden er dessverre i bruk hos tabloidavisene.

Sorry for the incomprehensible interlude, people. :)

I bought the region 2 edition of Twin Peaks - The Definitive Gold Box Edition today. An impressive box. Just finished watching the extras. Well done CBS Video!

I was 15 years old in 1990 too. Sure remember the pilot but it was the ending of episode 2 that really blew me away. After that I was completely hooked.

I bought R2 today too. Just finished watching the extras. What can I say...I grew up with twin peaks and this was overwhelming. I have no words for what I'm feeling right now. 17 years of waiting is over and I've finally found peace. Twin Peaks is now complete. I want to thank everyone involved with both the series itself and the dvd edition. Amazing work! The best!

To all you Norwegians on this board - TP on Norwegian television once again! TV2 begynner å sende Twin Peaks i morgen 23.40. Det ser ikke ut som om de skal sende piloten dog, ettersom det står at det er ferdig 00.30, så det ser ut til at de begynner rett på episode 1 av en eller annen merkelig grunn. Hehe :)

Idiotisk. Men litt morsomt at de sender det. Spesielt etter at TV3 har sendt det i år etter år på fine tidspunkter som 02:40 natt til mandag.

TVNorge var den første norske tv-kanalen som sendte serien i reprise. Var vel i 1995. Synes jeg kan huske at de sendte den sent på kveldstid. Ellers så har Viasat + (senere ZTV, nå Viasat 4) sendt serien. Tror det var våren 2001. Ble sendt på kveldstid (rundt 21). Tok den opp på video. TV3s sendetidspunkter vitnet om serien var beregnet som fyllmasse på nattetid.

Ellers ser jeg liten grunn til å se serien på TV, nå som den finnes på dvd. Det kan dog være en fin måte for nye seere å oppleve denne fantastiske serien.

They are probably splitting the pilot into two seperate episodes. That's what Viasat 4 did in 2001. Not uncommon.
