I'm a fan of soap operas. And just like the next guy, I like to guess whodunit. But I draw the line at soap operas that coyly make you guess when they are going to reveal a major plot turn. Specifically I refer to ABC's Twin Peaks. First the producers said they'd reveal who killed Laura Palmer in last season's final episode in May. But a few days before the show aired, they hinted we might not find out. Everybody knew it was a ploy to carry interest into the fall; I could even live with that. Then, however, they said they'd reveal the killer in next season's first episode. And now they're not sure when the killer is going to be unmasked. Hey, guys. Call us when you decide. Meanwhile I'll be watching Carol & Company.
