    in my opinion it's held up extremely well. it has a definite advantage in that it was not run of the mill television at the time. edgy- and a little disturbing (not sure what my mental health professional would say)- the Waltons it ain't.
    i figure you are pretty much a David Lynch fan or you're not.
    my wife says most of his stuff "weirds her out"-Blue Velvet in particular.
    but I dig his stuff- Robert Loggia's "driving instruction seminar" in Lost Highway is cinematic excellence.
    and although I understand the "purists " grudge I think his interpretation of Dune will someday be accorded it's due simply for the "feel", the outstanding casting, the production values, and superb cinematography.

    Ha! I’ve been rewatching it as well. It’s great. I’m about halfway through season 2.

    It was pretty good, IMO, and we finally found out who killed who (the actual end of the series).

    When it went on; it got really bizarre.

    And, the second ending, was acid-trippy, weird and crazy.

    I don't think I liked it...

    (I liked the series Northern Exposure, much better.)

    I'm a fan, I used to be a massive fan but since Mulholland Drive (which I love) I think he's been on a downwards trajectory, apart from the Twin Peaks reboot which I really enjoyed.

    ... or maybe I was just really happy to have it back and it wasn't objectively that great? I'm not sure.

    Loved the first series. It’s one of the greats imo. Im a fan of Lynch in general but I just couldn’t get into the second series of twin peaks. Just didn’t work for me.

    Nutz the Younger’s getting ready to graduate from NWU film school ... HUGE Lynchianites around here ... rewatched Eraserhead with him for a class (he’s remoting here) as well as BV, Md, etc., and he and Nutz the Elder have been discussing the finer points of TP 1-3 and FWWM ...

    On an aside, we now subscribe to the Criterion Channel, and have (re)watching a chit-ton (technical term) of older foreign films, indies, etc. E’erbody’s put titles in a hat, and we draw for what’s next ... tonight, Apocalypse Now ...

    I can admit to being a big Lynch fan, but I never cared to watch this. I tried 2 years ago or so, but just didn’t hold. I watched Narcos and Better Call Saul instead, multiple times.

    WOW, BOB, WOW! :lol:

    When the original series was on, a coworker asked me if I watched Twin Peaks.
    I said, no.
    She then said, with your weird sense of humor, you would love it.
    I never got the chance, until 2015, when it was on a cable channel that I usually don't watch. I watched season 1 and 2 during the month of March.
    I was hooked when they were doing the autopsy on Linda Palmer, and the lights were flickering, and someone said, we really have to get an electrician in here. :D

    I could write a thousand words, but suffice to say, I love everything about the show, and its weirdness.
    David Lynch is a genious.

    Where I come from, the birds sing a pretty song, and there's always music in the air.

    Mike :D

    Blue Velvet definitely weirded me out. Liked Twin Peaks. I read all the Dune books and like his version quite a bit - understanding that his budget was very limited for such an endeavor. I would watch it again.

    We have a restaurant in Indy called Twin Peaks. Right down the street from Hooters. Yup.

    Yep, it absolutely holds up, FAR better than the other shows of its era, particularly the primetime soap operas it (sometimes) parodied. The pilot episode is one of the greatest TV episodes ever, as is Episode 8 of The Return.

    They don't write 'em like this anymore :D

    Dale Cooper: Who's the lady with the log?
    Sheriff Truman: We call her the Log Lady.

    Log Lady: One day my log will have something to say about this. My log saw something that night.
    Dale Cooper: Really? What did it see?
    Log Lady: Ask it.

    Remember, the owls are not what they seem.

    She was right. Also, Bobby is right about the entire town.

    Phillip Jeffries sees through it all: "Who do you think this is there?!"

    Phillip Jeffries - what a character - played in the original by David Bowie:
