Bootlegging aside, the computer screen isn’t the ideal place to watch most movies. Television, on the other hand, may be just about perfect.

Twin Peaks, for instance, has been posted on CBS.com since February without much fanfare, but it’s by far the best reason to visit the site. The show is still in the running for the best thing David Lynch has ever made, and it’s a direct ancestor of heavily plotted series from The X-Files to Lost. In short, it’s worth a couple dozen hours of your time, and by putting it on their site, CBS is reminding us they had the good sense to put it on the air in the first place.

Although we shudder to think about what Mr. Lynch thinks of it all.
