Twin Peaks versus Chess
Pity! And if the brilliant Twin Peaks can't make chess on TV any good, then what possibly might? Nonetheless, you can find a snipper after the jump . . .
Later 'highlights' include local chess expert Pete Martell surrounded by books and boards, searching desperately for a capture-less stalemate in the dubious position arising after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 b6 4.dxe5, and the entombing of one of Earle's victims in a giant papier-mâché knight. That and more all findable on youtube, if your eyes can bear it.
