The Soviet President Would Like To Speak To You Now

In the early ‘90s, ‘Twin Peaks’ arrived on our television screens and an entire nation was hooked on the mystery behind who killed Laura Palmer. But the show’s popularity crossed all sorts of borders, ultimately finding a fan in USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev. Allegedly, the Soviet President was such a super fan of the cult classic, he turned searching for spoilers into a matter of international relations. Gorbachev was so determined to know who killed Laura Palmer, he picked up his phone and took his request directly to President George H.W. Bush. Even David Lynch didn’t predict that plot twist.
