Re: Last TV show you watched

New Twin Peaks episodes were as fantastic as expected, but I'm furious episodes three and four aren't yet available on my service.

So much better than that craven X-Files return from last year. A bold continuation of Lynch's later film work rather than a play it safe nostalgic reunion.

Tonight's new season premiere of Twin Peaks was satisfyingly mind blowing and immediately raised new questions about the Black Lodge and its inhabitants. Can't wait to see the new episodes!

This season is definitely off to a strong start. I think this is Lynch's best work since Mulholland Drive.

This is something that I would love to see in 3D.
The cinematography is spectacular! Those aerial shots of New York City!

I can't stop thinking about this!

Had no idea it was here already. I'll need to see what services it's on.

Yes, Twin Peaks was very interesting. It wasn't what I expected, but it's unfiltered Lynch and it's a beautiful thing to behold.

Re: Last TV show you watched

In reference to the Twin Peaks premiere, did the fate of the young couple watching the mysterious glass box remind anyone else of the fate of Alb Indys in "The Troubles of Dr. Thoss"?

I will wait until it's all out because the anticipation and wait between episodes would be painful. I still need to watch the movie Fire Walk with Me too. I will do it tonight.

May I suggest an alternative?

I watched all four episodes over two nights. I plan on re-watching them several times over the next two weeks until episode 5 becomes available.

It's that good.

This is the way I get when I find a new band I'm crazy about - I play and replay them over and over. In this case, Twin Peaks is not my favorite new band, but my favorite old band reuniting and sounding newer than they did before they broke up.

Re: Last TV show you watched

I am going through Sapphire & Steel at the moment. It is quite strange and remarkable. The British created the best television drama in the world back in the 60s and 70s, which is a shame now as even their best output is so uninspired compared to the heights of US cable television drama.
