This thread isn't meant for that. It is, as the title suggests, a thread in which the small minority of us who are experiencing feelings of extreme disappointment and even disillusionment can band together and rant/moan/complain to our heart's content without being told that we're not getting it.

I stayed up to watch the first two episodes. It was difficult not to fall asleep before Twin Peaks started but I fully expected that ONCE it started, a truckload of Valium wouldn't be able to put me under. Man was I wrong. This has been called pure heroin Lynch. Well I certainly feel that Lynch may have been on heroin when he came up with this. I also feel that I'm going to need a lot of heroin to get through it. I'll get the ball rolling.

1. Angelo Badalamenti - what has he contributed so far? I get it, the guy is old and not exactly at the height of his powers. So the solution is to..... have little to no music. Ok that's one way of dealing with it.

2. Terrible Acting - A lot of the performances make Sofia Coppola's performance in Godfather III look like Al Pacino's performance in Godfather I. Oh, but it's all deliberate right? Therefore it's actually really GOOD acting.

3. The Red Room - Did Lynch dig out his old Commodore 64 to come up with this?

4. No emotional connection to any characters - Funnily enough this is pretty important to me. The original Pilot was utterly harrowing. By the end of it I cared about a bunch of people I had only 'met' 90 minutes or so before. At the end of the Return Pilot I had started to care less about characters I had loved for 25 years.

5. New bands at the end of each episode. I've been listening to the Chromatics for a good while. But their appearance in TP just felt utterly wrong and out of place.

6. A lot of Twin Peaks is no longer in Twin Peaks. Yeah, I want to spend time in my favourite fictional place in the universe. Not in some terrible Vegas casino.

7. Pacing. Lynch likes playing with audience patience, we know. And isn't he clever to literally watch paint dry, with Jacobi and the shovels. In small doses this is fine but so far it seems to be about half of the material.

I could go on but am not trying to provide an exhaustive list, just a few reasons as to why so far the Return hasn't exactly lit my F-I-R-E.

Let's face it, we're probably all going to watch to the end (maybe by which time we'll have been converted) so we may as well keep each other company.

Oh and in case I didn't make it clear, this isn't the place for those of you besotted with the Return to come in and tell us why we're wrong. It's a safe space, so please show some R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Floor sweeping scene is agonizing..

If Part 7 doesn't convince you, it's time to tune out.

Two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort and one of 'em says, "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know, and such small portions."

..comes to mind as it must to more than a few. 7 was an utter hoot, I'd suggest checking with a doctor if your smile doesn't last for 4 hours after that one.

Yeah, if we get that from now on (which I wanted from the beginning, admittedly) I'm firmly in the camp of "Twin Peaks is back."

I hope YOUR MILEAGE DOESN'T VARY.

For me, this felt like TP/FWWM material, even the floor mopping scene was pretty good. If every second episode until the end is this good I'll be a happy camper.

Finally. After six, mostly feeble, episodes of silly, pretentious, arty-farty garbage, we get some proper television (which I regard as a craft, incidentally, not an art form.) For the first time, we get some genuine links to the show called Twin Peaks that made us tune in in the first place. So much to think about. So many updates on the events that followed the end of the old show. I need to spend a bit of time collating what I've seen thus far.

More please; what I'm dreading is that Part 8 will now turn around and be like Part 6!

I'm still severely disappointed by 'Twin Peaks: the Return' and, by extension, life in general.

Glad to see you liked it! I really did too. It's still not the revival I had been hoping for, but this latest episode was so much better than the ones before it.
