RON WEISXMD 'Twin Peaks' over the edge Ot teeters along the fine edge of self-parody without ever falling off," I wrote in April about the pilot episode of "Twin Peaks." Alas, on Sunday night's season premiere the show's creators, Mark Frost and David Lynch, sent "Twin Peaks" careening over the cliff and rolling down those snow-covered mountains to a crashing thud.

I'm not upset that we didn't learn who killed Laura Palmer we've all come to expect that. Of course, there is BOB, the long-haired man who was seen last season by Agent Cooper and by Laura's mother in nightmare visions. BOB was the killer in the European videocassette release of the "Twin Peaks" pilot, and Sunday's episode concluded with a flashback to the murder that showed him doing the deed. But is BOB real, or does he represent the actual killer, the evil force in the town of Twin Peaks who drove Laura to depravity through her teen-age years? It's hard enough to figure out what is real in "Twin Peaks." But what made the pilot episode so compelling and unsettling was that it created what seemed to be a real place with real people, a place with an underlying edge of weirdness that belied the town's placid facade. It gave us a peek at primal emotion, the kind we all keep bottled up deep inside.

Then tragedy strikes, a homecoming queen dies, and a mother sobs uncontrollably. A high-school principal chokes up after announcing the news. In the pilot they seemed odd to us, but we have known their counterparts in life. The cardinal sin of Sunday night's "Twin Peaks" premiere was that it violated this carefully crafted universe. The program acknowledged its artificiality by making fun of its own quirks.

There was the interminable opening scene in which the senile waiter returned again and again to Cooper's room and gave him the thumbs-up sign, oblivious to the fact that the man lay bleeding on the floor. A scene at the Double Diner opened with some yahoo yelling, "This pie is great," as if to mock the show's fascination with sweets. And were we really supposed to buy the Home brothers dancing crazily while a rejuvenated and suddenly white-haired Leland Palmer sang "Mairzy If this wasn't self-parody, what was it? Lynch, who directed the episode, and Frost, who wrote it, poked a giant hole in the emotional truth of "Twin Peaks," which, along with Agent Cooper's serene optimism, was the only thing that kept the show on solid ground. Now Twin Peaks seems to be nothing more than a weird town filled with weird people who have only the most tenuous connection to reality. I'm willing to stick it out, though.

The "Twin Peaks" pilot remains the best fictional drama I've seen on television this year. Maybe Lynch and Frost can get the magic back. On the other hand, the "Twin Peaks" premiere finished second in the overnight ratings to NBC's Perry Mason movie. Frost has been quoted as saying that by the seventh episode this season, we will know conclusively who killed Laura Palmer. A few more episodes like the one Sunday, and no one will be around to find out.

Another series cliffhanger was resolved with a lot less publicity Sunday. But the result was a lot more satisfying.

They were turning the captain into one of their own, and the Enterprise was about to fire on the Borg ship in a last-gasp effort at stopping them. The weapon didn't work, as it turns out.

But the Enterprise prevailed (of course) by rescuing the captain and using his knowledge of the Borg to find a weak link. In effect, our heroes put the Borg to sleep, causing a malfunction that blew up their ship. The plot was exciting, to be sure. But the excellence of "Next Generation" is found precisely in the area where "Twin Peaks" came up lame on Sunday. As did its predecessor, "Next Generation" immerses us in a thoroughly plausible vision of the future and that vision remains consistent.

The show never makes fun of itself, never winks at us as if to say, "This is all a joke." The show's acting ensemble remains first rate, and the best scripts resonate with meaning that goes beyond the narrative. The force of ideas and the relationships between the characters are the key factors that distinguish "Next Generation" from other shows. Because it airs in syndication and not on a network, "Next Generation" doesn't get the respect and attention it deserves except from its loyal fans. "Twin Peaks" may have faltered but "Star Trek: The Next Generation" continues on a steady path, i imnflfrfril e1tb I.Al IIICi; II A.
