I’m a big Lynch fan, but I totally understand people’s distaste for the new Twin Peaks. I enjoyed it, but unlike the original series, I’ve only watched it once through. However, it should be noted that Mark Frost did indeed co-write the new series as well. Also, with the exception of the original pilot, the handful of episodes of the original series that Lynch directed personally were always very very “Lynchian” with that extreme heightened sense of reality. As if the show was someone’s bizarre dream of what a dramatic tv show is. I am a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Hobbit, not so much. They stretched that story out to make more movies to make more money.
