Yes... you are right, I think. Anyone who feels himself intrigued & titillated by the strange magical world of especially The Return will most likely make up a good candidate on actual magic & some of its weird challenges.
Although, in case he ends up giving a bit too much emphasis on the aesthetical side of the Black (because the White lodge is so much harder to make aesthetically awesome, in a similar way how the Dante's Inferno is much more read than his Heaven) we/he will also have some problems.

There really are heavy theosophical influences in Twin Peaks, most striking of which is the idea of dugpas as the followers of the accentuated downward path. Also the White & Black lodges, the doppelgänger (Guardian of the Threshold) &c., but in them the form is not so much from original blavatskyisms, but rather coming down through the post-theosophical schema of the 20th century New Age occultism.
In case you are interested in electricity (or rather electricity as an entity, Fohat), there is some info about this hard to grasp metaphysical doctrine in "Transactions of the Blavatsky Lodge". Also a strange book by Christopher P. Holmes, "God, Science & The Secret Doctrine: The Zero Point Metaphysics & Holographic Space of H.P. Blavatsky" might be of interest. (An article about Fohat will also be published in my Demons' Cube / Writings on Magic.)
